A batch of 15 new indie games have been greenlit for Steam. This new group of Steam Greenlight successes will allow players to take on a variety of colorful professions, such as space station janitor or a friendly neighborhood ghost.
Geeta Games' Lilly Looking Through is a throwback to the bygone era of the point-and-click adventure games that flooded and enticed the market during the 90s boom era of gaming... also known as the Golden Age of gaming. The title aims to rekindle the nostalgia of old while bridging in aesthetics, visuals and technology from the new.
Well, Zach, it looks like we're about to embark on another grand adventure. Just you and me, buddy. Apparently PC gamers want to know more about our latest case in Greenvale. You remember the one? That's right. It was about that town beauty who was found dead in the woods. They turned it into a video game called Deadly Premonition and, thanks to this little thing called Steam Greenlight, it looks like we'll be making a trip to the PC soon.
Monochroma from Nowhere Studios is an industrial-dystopian platformer that sees players taking on the role of a young boy who must get his brother to safety. Players will have to carry the young boy through some fairly perilous situations while solving puzzles along the way.
So, what do you think hell would be like if Satan upchucked and left the party to go elsewhere? Who would take over? What would the nine circles be like? What would they become? All these theologically brain-teasing questions get answered while peppered with laughs in the upcoming point-and-click adventure game, Go To Hell Dave.
During all the Comic-Con craziness, the EVO 2013 booing event and the Steam Summer Sale, we almost completely forgot about covering some upcoming Greenlight titles on Steam's indie service. The latest game to instantly start making waves on Greenlight is the Thai-based arcade-mech game, Project Nimbus.
Deadly Premonition, one of the most critically divisive games of all time, has already spread its bizarre form of open-world mystery adventure to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Now developer Rising Star Games has its sights set on a new frontier, the PC, with the game now available on Steam Greenlight.
In sci-fi games like Mass Effect and Halo, players kill hundreds of aliens. Viscera Cleanup Detail isn't one of those games. Instead, Viscera puts you in the shoes of the janitor who arrives on scene after the battle is over.
There aren't many horror games out there. There are even fewer multiplayer horror games. 9heads Game Studios' Damned seeks to fill the void in gamers' Steam library.
It would take you about 10,000 real life years to travel from one end of StarMade's universe to the other. That's right, this game is massive and it's populated with procedurally generated solar systems with random planets of varying types, and sports ships that range from small cruisers to capital star destroyers and everything else in between.
As many commenters have already stated on the Steam Greenlight page, Up Media has some super-mega big balls to upload a game like this to the general gaming audience...but they did it, and they did it proudly. My Ex-Boyfriend The Space Tyrant is a gay-themed point-and-click game, made in a similar vein to the classic Sierra-style adventures...and it's causing quite the stir.
Mr. T, Chuck Norris, Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Wesley Snipes, Richard Dean Anderson, Kurt Russel and everyone else in between in one game? That sounds too good to be true...but it's not!
Man, all that negative news about the Xbox One could almost make you forget why we love the industry in the first place: the games. Limasse Five released a new trailer and promo material for their architecturally inspired horror game, Naissance.
For those of you who enjoy heading into anomalous zones and searching out artifacts amongst the dangers of anomalies in games like S.T.A.L.K.E.R., you'll probably really dig a game like SZone Online, which is basically a 1:1 MMO rendition of the popular Ukrainian post-apocalyptic survival game.
One of my most highly anticipated games is Edge of Space, an open-world, space-faring adventure game with a deep crafting system, terraforming and RPG mechanics. Reverb and Handyman Studios announced today that the beta for Edge of Space will be free this entire weekend, enabling gamers to check the game out at no extra charge.
