This stylish third person martial arts game from Sloclap, published by Devolver Digital, is a very impressive first entry for this indie studio. Absolver features complex and strategic combat teamed with a semi open world PvE storyline to accompany its primary PvP focus, which leaves you with a game that feels one of a kind. Certainly not a title to be enjoyed by everyone as its blend of genres makes for an experience that is challenging and competitive.
QUByte Interactive present the player with a 2D retro style beat ‘em up. Featuring a variety of playable characters and enemies 99Vidas endeavours to provide an exciting side scrolling fighting game with a basic story and fun gameplay. It almost succeeds on all fronts, ultimately producing an experience that is essentially alright, but lacking in anything that really makes it stand out from other games in it’s genre. Nothing special and nothing that makes it feel truly memorable.
This intriguing puzzle experience from creative content producer Investigate North, provides a beautiful world to wander through with a potentially engaging story. Aporia: Beyond the Valley is an interesting concept that endeavours to blend story telling and low interaction gameplay with limited success. A gorgeous looking game that seems to feel like it falls short on it’s goal, seeming undefined and unpolished in many areas.
Taking on the challenge of creating an old school RPG, Indie developer Event Horizon are developing their first Steam release, Tower of Time, in Early Access. With a blend of well crafted story telling and tactical, real time combat this is a game that promises a beautiful experience with something for those players who love the older style of RPG as well as players who may be more used to newer methods of tackling combat and general gameplay. Despite it’s currently rough edges, Tower of Time feels quite different to more recent releases in it’s genre and offers something special.
The delights of this charming action brawler created by indie developer Tomatotrap are many in number. Plasma Puncher is simple to understand and difficult to get good at, offering a fun and light-hearted experience that still contains challenge. An adorable looking game with fast flowing and smooth gameplay that makes it look and feel very much worth it’s very reasonable asking price.
Dig or Die has been in Early Access for some time. However, developer Gaddy Games have produced a game that contains crafting, tower defence and horde mode elements, combining them together to create an engaging experience with an intriguing progression system and the option to experience the game in multiplayer. An enjoyable title under a reasonable price tag that certainly shows promise as it continues to move through development.
The creators of Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, Torn Banner Studios have snuck out a new game with seemingly very little publicity or fanfare. Building off the same premise and combat basis as Chivalry, Mirage: Arcane Warfare offers the player a game full of colour and energy with a variety of classes and a set of fun magic abilities in a fast paced multiplayer environment.
This Early Access title is the first Commercial Indie project by the developer Matt Dabrowski. An ambitious creation that aims to essentially give the player free reign in how they can tackle any situation or mission while also providing a randomly generated set of levels upon each run through, Streets of Rogue attempts and achieves things that others possibly haven’t even thought to try.
This delightful experience from Garden Shed Studios first entry onto Steam has a distinct arcade feel to it while blending hack and slash, dungeon crawling gameplay with rogue like mechanics. Challenging, varied and visually lovely, Super Stone Legacy is a game with significant amounts of re-playability that offers a vast amount of enjoyment.
Indie developer, Majorariatto, have offered up their first steam release to the masses. Majotori is an amusing, casual game based around the player dictating the outcome of various situations and stories based on how well you answer a round of trivia questions. There is still some luck involved as the only way of guaranteeing a positive outcome is to answer every single question correctly, but even in failure the game remains light hearted and entertaining.
