The fourth batch of games - and second batch of software - has been accepted on Steam Greenlight, and it contains some real killers.

La-Mulana is a 2D exploration-heavy Metroidvania game that's a bit like a cross between Dark Souls and Fez for people who thought both those games were too easy. It's kind of brilliant.

Akaneiro: Demon Hunters is American McGee's latest free-to-play joint at his China-based studio Spicy Horse. It recently went into open beta last week and also has a Kickstarter so it can realise it's full potential. It's nearly halfway to its $200,000 goal with 18 days to go.

Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards: Reloaded was a Kickstarter-funded success that will see series creator Al Lowe team up with Journey composer Austin Wintory, naturally.

Beyond that, Cardboard Computer's lonely episodic point-and-click bluegrass ballad Kentucky Route Zero - which just released its first episode last week - made the cut due to being an Independent Games Festival Main Competition finalists, as did quirky evolution-gone-awry physics-based puzzler Incredipede.
