Interesting on Steam

Just to make things clear, this is by order of appearance and should not advise anything about importance.

Republique is the critically acclaimed iOS game reminiscent of Experience 112 but better looking, better acted and probably better designed. Available on the 26th.

MyRPG looks like a piece of software for creating simple action RPGs without any coding. It seems a bit limited and not very diverse but who knows, maybe it’s the new GameMaker. Now in Early Access.

Tormentum – Dark Sorrow “is a dark point & click adventure”. What exactly does that mean? I don’t know. But the images are very H.R.Geiger-esque. Not sure what to think of this. Available March 4th.

Idol Hands is a new take on the god game and it looks cute if a bit simplistic. Available on the 18th.

Ascent – The Space Game is a sandbox space MMO game built by two guys. It’s very ambitious, very dense and, the alpha version I tried had some wonky controls. But if they fix that and get a good handle on the scope, this could, at least, be the poor-man’s Star Citizen/Elite: Dangerous/No Man’s Sky. Early Access on the 27th.

Paparazzi is a twitchy asymmetric action game about avoiding the Paparazzi and trying to get that great shot of the celebrity. Looks like it could be a lot of fun. Available on the 17th.

Offworld Trading Company looks like something I’ve been waiting for for a while, a Civilisation-style game but with no combat and a bigger focus on economy. Now in Early Access.

Hypen is a more-difficult-and-intense-than-it-seems puzzle game in which you navigate a spinning line through different obstacles. Not sure. Has potential for greatness. Available now for 8$.

GameGuru is another game maker for making first person shooters and first person RPGs and first person explorers and… that’s about it, really. It looks like a simple cut and paste kind of thing but, also, not very diverse. Early Access on March 2nd.

Sword Coast Legends looks like a reimagining of the original D&D CRPGs such as Baldur’s Gate and Temple of Elemental Evil with the Dungeon Master mode of Neverwinter Nights. Hopefully, the new take on the subject will make this old formula more fun than those previous. Available Q3.

Fermi’s Path is a 2D runner with a twist. Weird story aside, it’s got the slew of regular mechanics, it’s well implemented and looks good. If that’s your thing. Available in April.

Hatred is here just for consistency. I haven’t played Postal, though it is in my library, but the idea of a just-for-kicks serial murder simulator doesn’t appeal to me that much. And the art design makes it all even drearier. Available Q2.
