Valve is licensing out the source engine for an animated movie called Deep I believe. I remember reading about it before Source Filmmaker beta was announced. http://goo.gl/JmvkK

Back to the main topic, I fail to see why people are so paranoid here. Valve didn't suddenly find the indie gaming scene and have always support them. There is just simply too much for any one to wade through. Microsoft has a similar process for XNA/AppHub indies where they have to be peer reviewed/Tested before they are allowed on the marketplace.
Thats a very interesting link, thanks!

Yeah I don't know wtf is up with all these kickstarter comparisons and accusations. This move has nothing at all to do with funding, which means it has nothing at all to do with crowd funding, which means it has nothing at all to do with kickstarter or its models. And even if it somehow did... so what?
I sometimes see posts where its obvious someone doesn't even read the summary, let alone RTFA. But its rare to see so many posts in a single thread exemplifying that.

Valve is just trying to get some help for the first stage of the approval process to get a game onto steam. Ideally the community can filter out some of the crap and they only have to look at the cream of the crop. Voting on games doesn't have anything to do with funding those games.
Asking for community help with opinions has been around long before kickstarter existed. It would be more accurate to say that kickstarter "ripped off" the idea from other sources. And I'm happy they did.
