Valve have given a new load of games their seal of approval (opens in new tab) - or rather you have, doing Valve's job for them so they have more time to make hats and trading cards and Half-Life 5. The headline here is that one of the 14 games greenlit is the...unique Deadly Premonition (opens in new tab) , Swery's ridiculous survival horror love letter to David Lynch. But that's not all! Roguelikey metroidvania Chasm (opens in new tab) is also heading to Steam, along with its good friends Among The Sleep (opens in new tab) and Operation Black Mesa (opens in new tab) . But that's still not all! There are also ten more. OK, that's all. Hear them in list form after the break.

  • A Hat in Time
  • Among the Sleep
  • Broforce
  • Centration
  • Chasm
  • Darkwood
  • Deadly Premonition: The Director's Cut
  • Divekick
  • Operation Black Mesa
  • Project Awakened
  • Recruits
  • Rekoil
  • Shelter
  • StarMade

If you hate games (and probably sunlight) and would rather populate your game library with software, you'll be pleased to hear that Dexster Audio Editor and GraphicEditor openCanvas are also on their way to the Steam machine. From the names, I'd take guess that the first is accounting software, while the second is a teach-yourself-juggling program. I am never wrong.

His favourite game worlds—Stalker, Dark Souls, Thief—have an atmosphere you could wallop with a blackjack. He enjoys horror, adventure, puzzle games and RPGs, and played the Japanese version of Final Fantasy VIII with a translated script he printed off from the internet.
