Lastly, due to getting fewer submissions than we'd hoped for the "Best Original Universe" category, we didn't think it was fair to the other finalists to showcase it at the awards site, since they had to battle through stiffer competition to make it this far. But congratulations all the same to TheMike, Black_Stormy, Crazyb2000, Gamerman12, Oggnog, =|NLR|= Narry Gewman and Anton on their winning short <a href="http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=108299566">"Elements"</a>.

We just revealed the third set of games and first set of Software titles to advance through Steam Greenlight and be offered worldwide distribution via the popular platform for games and software.
The latest collection of games and first set of Software titles to advance through Greenlight were selected for having either the highest number of positive votes or on an incredible upward trajectory since being added to Greenlight.
With these titles, 13 games and six Software titles (see full list below), a total of 50 titles have advanced through Steam Greenlight and been offered Steam distribution agreements since Greenlight launched in August.
In just three months, the community has helped us identify 50 new titles for us to offer via Steam. With the help of Greenlight, the indie games market share of games sold on Steam has increased by 50 percent for a third consecutive year. That's a stat we are proud of, but one we also hope to increase as we learn more about Greenlight and continue to refine it in the new year.
It is once again that time of year where the community has a chance to vote for their favorite Upcoming and Released Mods as well as Indies. For those who have been following us ZP:S has won Upcoming MOTY and came in 2nd for Released. Contagion nearly reached Top 5 Upcoming last year and we hope to see it in the rankings this year but a lot of stiff competition.
Show your support and let's see if we can't get Zombie Panic: Source that Released MOTY and a possible Top spot for Contagion our upcoming spiritual successor! We can't do it without your support. We've got some surprises for the end of the year as well (whether or not we make it but figured you'd all like to know we're hard at work on something).
