Join Jonathan Sears for an in-depth discussion in this video What is Steam Greenlight?, part of SteamOS for Developers First Look.
…So far we've talked a lot about Steam and SteamOS.…But we haven't really talked about how to get your game on Steam yet.…And the way you do that is using a service called Steam green light.…Now, at the moment Steam green light works pretty well on Windows.…But there are a couple of issues on the Mac.…Whatever it is the latest version of flash and the Steam client.…Videos from YouTube do not play back properly…on game and application pages within the Steam Greenlight…section so instead of doing it inside the…application I'm going to go to the Steam website.…
These two are identical so you'll see almost no…difference between the Steam application and the Steam website.…If you're familiar with it, it is store.steampowered.com.…And once you're in the Greenlight section it shows up as steamcommunity.com.…So, I'm in here.…And if you need to get back to the…Steam Greenlight section, you'll find it under community greenlight.…And, I'm going to scroll down here.…And you'll see I have a couple of…different games here listed that I can vote on.…
