The Final Steam Greenlight Game Actually Looks Pretty Cool

Valve officially turned out the lights on Steam’s user-driven Greenlight service today, ending an era defined by inconsistency — both in regards to game quality and Valve’s policies. The final game to be submitted, though? It looks pretty neat.

The Underground King, which is not finished yet, bills itself as a narrative/racing/manager RPG where “you recruit the city’s lowlifes, assemble junkyard cars and have them compete in street races for profit and infamy”.

Here’s what it looks like:

Junk cars? In a setting that isn’t a Mad Max-inspired wasteland and people don’t immediately burst into wistful, incredulous tears upon seeing the colour green? I’m intrigued.

The lone announcement on the game’s Greenlight page is an acknowledgement that, whoops, Underground King is the last Greenlight game. “How… lucky is that?” wrote the game’s developers. “So much work to do [on] the page and now [it’s] for naught.”

Maybe it’s not all for nought, though. Steam Direct is just around the corner, and in the meantime, Underground King is also running a Kickstarter. The game may or may not be good in the end, but the final Greenlight game could’ve been an anime porn dating sim starring Kim-Jong Un or yet another game where you play as poop. In these dark times, it’s important to count our blessings.
