Steam greenlights 100 new titles as part of 'stress test'

Valve has admitted to many of the problems that plagued Greenlight, its indie publishing initiative. The company has since streamlined the process to get games onto their storefront faster than before. Today, Valve announced it has reached a "milestone" in their publishing workflow, and will "stress-test" the system by releasing 100 new games onto the service.

"As we work to streamline the publishing workflow and improve the tools available to developers preparing for release on Steam, we've reached a point where we are ready to stress-test our system," Valve wrote on their official website. "The best way to accomplish this is to invite a significant number of developers to use the updated tools and systems, ship their games and software with these tools, and to give us feedback so that we may continue to improve the process."

Today's update bumps up the Greenlight collection of games from 160 to 260. The full list of games can be seen here.

Valve says that future Greenlight releases are unlikely to be as large as today's, but "if everything goes smoothly we should be able to continue increasing the throughput of games from Greenlight to the Steam store."
