Valve has released a new list of software applications that have been approved via the Steam Greenlight community. As with previously approved titles, the games and development software were chosen after reviewing various factors, such as crowdfunding success, awards, press reviews, and community interest.

One of the 50 titles that we’re keeping an eye on is Shadowgate, a crowdfunded remake of the 1987 classic point-and-click adventure game. The original game was ported to several different platforms, including the NES (which you can read our review of here).

From the Steam page:

“The last thing that you remember is standing before the wizard Lakmir as he gestured wildly and chanted in an archaic tongue. Now you find yourself staring at an entryway which lies at the edge of a forest.”

The remake promises a number of features, which include over 70 rooms to adventure through, an in-game hint system (in case the original was too hard for you), beautiful hi-resolution artwork, and two soundtrack modes (digital orchestra and NES). The Alpha should be coming soon, if it hasn’t already been sent to backers.

Here’s what else has been approved via Steam Greenlight:
