- Dream
- Heroes & Generals
- Kenshi
- McPixel
- No More Room in Hell

- Routine
- Towns

Valve's Anna Sweet said, "The Steam community rallied around these titles and made them the clear choice for the first set of titles to launch out of Greenlight.

"Since launch, hundreds of titles have been submitted, with more coming in every day. We expect to be announcing more titles coming to Steam via Greenlight soon."

Steam Greenlight launched on August 30, allowing users to vote on game projects and concepts posted by indie developers that they would like to see published on Steam.

The service was initially plagued with spam posts containing fake projects and 'jokes', or requests for titles such as the Origin-only Battlefield 3 or 'Half-Life 3'. Valve tackled this by introducing a $100 fee for users who with to post a project.
