Post Half-Life mod Black Mesa among first wave of "Greenlit" Steam games

Just under two weeks after first launching Steam Greenlight as a way to gauge user interest in a wide variety of independent games, Valve has selected ten titles from the service for full distribution through Steam.

Half-Life mod Black Mesa is probably the most high-profile selection among the initial batch of games. The fan-made remake of the original Half-Life, which has been in development since 2004, will be released on Friday as a limited version with content up to the Lambda Core, according to project leader Carlos Montero. Valve says other approved Greenlight titles will be released independently in the coming months, though, owing to "varying stages of completion."

Frenetic, abstract mini-game collection McPixel was also plucked from the Greenlight offerings, after developer Sos Sosowski gave the game away through torrent site the Pirate Bay over the weekend.
