Divekick, Deadly Premonition Greenlit on Steam

Steam gave its official seal of approval to Divekick, Deadly Premonition: Director's Cut, and eight other plucky titles. The titles were voted into the top of Steam's Greenlight service and will arrive on the digital distribution service in the weeks and months ahead.

Divekick is a reductive take on fighting games: players Dive into the air, then Kick diagonally downward, trying to land a hit above their opponent. Deadly Premonition: Director's Cut is a further-enhanced version of the off-kilter investigation game which first befuddled and bewitched players on Xbox 360 in 2010--it made its way into the top dozen Greenlight entries in just a week.

Post-apocalyptic multiplayer shooter Rekoil also cleared the community-voted limbo, as did ambitious open-world superhero creator (also failed Kickstarter) Project Awakened.
