Papers, Please and two other games added to Steam Greenlight

Valve made a small addition to its Steam Greenlight catalog today, adding three games including Papers, Please and one piece of software to the user-chosen library of content.

The company previously greenlit six batches of games and software, and each of those updates tended to include 10-20 titles. But Valve said today that due to increased attention being paid to items in the Greenlight voting stage, going forward it plans to greenlight content in smaller groups like today's set.

Lucas Pope's Papers, Please casts players as a border-control agent for the fictional communist state of Arstotzka. Edge of Space, by HandyMan Studios, is a 2D open-world sandbox title set in space. Venetica is a fantasy RPG set in 16th-century Venice and developed by Deck13 Interactive. Also among today's batch of Greenlight content is Substance Designer 3, 3D texture software for game developers that is made by Allegorithmic.
