Steam Greenlights 100 New Titles — Including 'Doctor Who'

October 2013 has been an incredibly rich month for Steam Greenlight, the service that lets users vote on their favorite indie titles to see which one merits a place on Valve's digital distribution platform. Steam's Oct. 31 update has added 100 new games, bringing the Greenlight total to 159 for the month.

If you don't know the process, here's how it works: Developers submit their games (and occasional pieces of nongame software) to Greenlight, and fans vote for their favorite ones. Steam then tallies up the votes, curates the results and picks which titles get a spot on the platform.
