My guess is they'll let us know when they know themselves. If you look at the games that do get green-lit, they include a lot of trashy straight-to-discount minigames, so it doesn't look hard to get greenlit per se.

Should the game be picked up at April 17th I would love to take a look at your Greenlight voting chart. Like this one here from Battle Worlds: Kronus

Getting Greenlit is completely unknown. All you know is what % of the way you are to being in the top 100 games - which is what that graph shows. This does not mean you get selected - it doesn't mean anything. The selection process is completely opaque and there is no feedback or indication from Steam. We guess that getting to the top 100 means Steam look at the game and decide if they like it but we don't know. It's a mystery and they've admitted it doesn't work.

Hi, after a game is greenlit the owner can request an unlimited number of codes so there is a ray of hope. If the game does get greenlit i'll buy it on steam again but the whole greenlight system is vague. :(

Seems a Battle Isle - style turn based strategy game ("Kronos") made it in the next batch of greenlit games!

That's actually good news, but it makes me rage that Panzer Corps was not greenlit. It's not only a kickstarter project, it already exists and has proven itself to be great in many reviews and by popular acclaim.

Seems like the "wargame" stigma kills it!? :(

I think there is an easy solution, all Infantry units are robots and the Tiger will become a heavy tank with twin barrel lasers and lighter tanks become hover tanks. The color palette will be intense red, blue and green. Also, all members of the Lordz and Slitherine will have to participate in a dancing promo video and don't stop mentioning how passionate you are about video games and that you played some 8-bit era hits.

Sorry, but this is really rubbing me the wrong way! :(
This is worse than the latest Star Wars movies and Disney Star Wars together.

Speaking of Disney Star Wars...

Who knows though, Disney was also behind The Avengers, and that turned out really well!

Walt is long dead like Roddenberry.

Today the name is just a brand, and that brand has incredibly deep pockets.

It's the same as how Avalon Hill and TSR are just names now. The reality is they are owned by Hasbro, aka Hasborg, and they will crush you into the dirt of your forget it.

Think EA has muscle? try offending Hasborg. No one survives and encounter with this monstrosity.

You have to look on the bright side, at least the remake of BattleIsle made it through Greenlight. :D
