Deadly Premonition and 13 other games greenlit on Steam

Also: Darkwood, Among the Sleep, A Hat in Time, and Broforce.

The latest batch of accepted titles on Steam Greenlight has been announced with a whopping 14 games and a couple of non-game pieces of software to boot.

Leading the pack is Swery's nutbars open-world detective cult-classic Deadly Premonition: The Director's Cut. Other noteworthy titles include the brotastic, destruction-heavy, side-scrolling platform shooter Broforce; the top-down survival-horror roguelike Darkwood; cute, cel-shaded platformer A Hat in Time; the first-person baby sim/surreal horror game Among the Sleep; metroidvania roguelike Chasm; and the minimalist competitive fighter Divekick.

Interestingly, all of the games I just mentioned save Deadly Premonition and Broforce began with crowdfunding campaigns.

The full list of newly greenlit games is as follows:

Did you hear that, Zach? We're coming to PC. I remember how we used to play computer games in the 80s. Remember Maniac Mansion, 1987, directed by Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick?
