Anodyne, Surgeon Simulator 2013, more officially Greenlit on Steam

Valve announced its fifth set of accepted Steam Greenlight games today, including Anodyne, Surgeon Simulator 2013 and more.

The full roster includes the following:
Huntsman: The Orphanage
Kingdom Rush
Legends of Dawn
Organ Trail: Director's Cut
Surgeon Simulator 2013
War Thunder

All 10 games "will be released independently" in the months to come, as all are in different levels of completion.

Surgeon Simulator 2013 was created by a four-man team during the Global Game Jam in January. As "ordinary guy" Nigel Burke, players find themselves suddenly forced to perform amateur heart surgery.

Anodyne recently garnered attention through its "Pirate Bay Promo," a response to the game turning up on file-sharing site The Pirate Bay. The game is already available through developer Analgesic Productions' site.

Steam Greenlight was announced in July 2012 as a way for community members to vote on which games they'd like to see distributed. Since its inception, Steam Greenlight has accepted more than 70 different titles, including American McGee's Kickstarted project, Akaneiro: Demon Hunters, unofficial Half-Life remake Black Mesa and McPixel.
