Releases for W/C 01 May 2017
We’ve combed the Steam store for games that might actually deserve some attention, rather than the shovelware that gets released on a daily basis. So lets go through some of this week’s releases.
TumbleSeed is a deceptively deep roguelike about balancing a seed up a dangerous and ever-changing mountain.
Avoid holes and defeat corrupted creatures in this dual-stick action adventure. Along your perilous trek you’ll be forced to strategize, grow powerful with upgrades, and master the art of rolling to avoid the mountain’s many dangers.
Half a year after Trails in the Sky SC, Father Kevin Graham takes on a routine mission on behalf of the Septian Church. He and his partner are then plunged into a realm that follows an unnaturally strict set of rules and is as intent to open old wounds as it is to keep them behind closed doors.
Super Rude Bear Resurrection is an ultra-tight, masocore platformer that anyone can beat! Every time you die, your previous corpses stack up and you can jump on them, push them around and use them as platforms or meatshields. Each death makes the game slightly easier, but it’s possible to beat the whole game without dying at all!
Rude Bear is a gangsta bear from East London who’s been summoned back in time to medieval England to defeat his mortal nemesis, The Wizard. Face challenges so lethal, you’ll (probably) need to be resurrected thousands of times to stand any chance of winning, and defeat the fearsome Guardians of each world.
Something is not right in the town of Stromdorf, the new DLC for Vermintide. A courier carrying important news has disappeared, and the Skaven seem once again to be plotting something sinister.
Make your way across the roaming hills outside of Stromdorf in The Courier, in search of the missing courier and the information he carries. Continue your journey in Reaching Out by venturing in to Stromdorf, a city with a history of fantastically brewed beer and never-ending rain, and take the Skaven head-on. In this DLC, you will also get the Executioner’s Sword, a mighty two-handed sword for Markus Kruber to slice off multiple skulls at once with.
In Prey, you awaken aboard Talos I, a space station orbiting the moon in the year 2032. You are the key subject of an experiment meant to alter humanity forever – but things have gone terribly wrong. The space station has been overrun by hostile aliens and you are now being hunted.
