Video Game ‘Greenlit’ by Steam

A new computer game titled ‘Go Kinok! Go!’ designed by Red Cap Games, has recently got approval by Steam and is offered worldwide distribution via the Steam community after being endorsed by Steam users.
Steam is an internet-based digital distribution, digital rights management, multiplayer, and social networking platform developed by Valve Corporation - an American video game development and digital distribution company headquartered in Washington. As of September 2014, over 3,700 games have been available through Steam, which has 100 million active users, Mehr News Agency reported.
Studios submit their games to Valve’s community-driven Steam Greenlight initiative to be voted by users to get a chance on the global distribution. Once a title has received a minimum number of votes, Valve brings the game to the Steam digital marketplace. Once this stage is reached, the game is considered “Greenlit”.
‘Go Kinok! Go!’ is a fast paced, hand drawn 2D platform game for PC, Mac, and cell phones, inspired by games like ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ and classic ‘Rayman’ - popular speed-based platform games. It introduces Iran’s geography and climate through artistic design of beautiful landscapes.
The game’s main character ‘Kinok’, a speedy runner, acquired its name from the name of an aqueduct in Iran’s southwestern Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari Province.
After several routing puzzles, Kinok can jump on the heads of the earth’s enemies to defeat them. With enough speed, Kinok can launch into ‘Bullet Mode’ where with an unstoppable speed, it can blast everything in its path.
“To design the game, we took help from the technical knowledge of international game designers and developers,” marketing director of the team Seyed Ahmad Mousavi said.
Red Cap is a team of Iranian professionals united under one common goal “making high quality, fun, and good-looking video games.” They are experts in various fields such as 2D and 3D modeling, animation and art, programming of Unreal Script, UI (User Interface), physics, AI (Artificial Intelligence), and combat, design, camera, and level design. It took one year for the team to complete the game slated for release in summer.
Another Iranian video game ‘Shofer Race Driver’ got the ‘greenlit’ by Steam in the past and offered worldwide distribution via the community. The racing video game was developed by Zhoori Maang Studio and was released last July.
