    That's pretty poor principles if they allow other non game specific benchmark software.
    I may be inclined to let Resident Evil 6 off the hook (I assume it benches how well RE6 will run).

    The issue is not with having a benchmark program on steam, as there are many of them, the problem is using Greenlight to get a benchmark on steam. Greenlight is focused on games and tools to assist the development of games, that's all.

    There would be nothing stopping them going to Valve directly and asking for it to be added like other companies do. Greenlight is just one way of getting on Steam.

    Anything to stop them removing the word "benchmark" from the title, calling it an "interactive art/game/experience" or something and then resubmitting it to greenlight?

    Shame Steam's moderation team isn't so fussy when it comes to anything else Greenlight related. My god I wish it was gotten rid of.
