Darksiders 3 Darksiders 3 drops the formulaic approach to dungeons and items that the previous games had and goes for a more Dark Souls-esque combat system.
Life Is Strange 2 Dontnod's choose-your-own-adventure series tackles some pretty controversial topics and manages to tell an endearing story with relatable characters.
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice FromSoftware's ninja action game, Sekiro, takes place in Feudal Japan and it's a difficult game but it's one of the most rewarding experiences of Red Dead Redemption 2 Rockstar's western open-world shooter is a technical marvel and was regarded as one of, if not, the best video games of last year.
Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice Hellblade tells the story of a young woman named Senua who is dealing with psychosis. There's also a demo!
It's still in early access, with lots of genuinely exciting incoming features. If you missed it in the Humble Monthly, now is a good time.
A fantastic little puzzle gem with lovely art and music. How's the playercount of Tower Unite? I already own it, just curious how it's doing as I was an avid player back in the GModTower days.
It's somewhat quiet these days, hovering at around concurrent users, but it's more than enough to always have people to play with.
The game has one of the worst netcodes I've ever encountered. I live in NY and play on NY servers, but they are still janky.
They still haven't figured out a decent interpolation and client prediction well. Even mini-golf that shouldn't be affected by latency is horrible.
I too recommend Tower Unite, and I'm not big on social-type games, but after 60 hours I really enjoyed the mini games and coming back for the new ones as they're developed.
Islanders looks cool for not requiring use of resources, but seems like prime bundle material and my big backlog is holding me back.
It's more of the same, polished up a bit. Having said that, it also has some significant microtransactions, so I recommended 5 over it.
They essentially offer cheats quick unlocks for a price. This is not a fun thing to do. There's no reason to do it.
This is a single player game. You do not need to spend any money whatsoever to play BTD6. I have read Bloons td5 is only online coop and not local coop.
Any recommendations for local couch coop td games outside of pixeljunk monsters? I don't think I've ever played any, but you might want to check this steam curator out.
Definitely not one to be missed, but it's definitely a love it or hate it game. Shame, because it's very good despite being just a walking simulator.
Made by the guys who made The Stanley Parable. Full mod support as well and developed in Unity, so it's quite easy to add more content.
Active developer support. Excellent stealth game although I haven't tried out the co-op mode, people have said it's pretty good too.
I mean, post-Cold War is an era rarely explored at all past the initial years. Only real complaint is that it's a bit unpolished in the animation department.
BallisticNG is phenomenal. I recommend grabbing all Enai's workshop tracks if you pick it up. Root Double : A team of rescue workers, civilians, and high school students get trapped inside of a nuclear research facility.
The question remains: what led them here, and how do they all escape? Choices are made through the Senses Sympathy system using a bar to set how the protagonist feels towards other characters.
If you're interested in the Zero Escape series, this is a good diversion to hold you over should you be finished with those games.
What more could you want? Uses live action shots instead of the usual visual novel art. AI: The Somnium Files : In many ways, a spiritual successor to Zero Escape it's by the creator of Zero Escape , but it takes itself a lot more lightly and sardonically.
It's definitely a lot closer to a mish mash between Psychonauts and the investigative portions of Ace Attorney. I would say it's an excellent intro to the genre, especially if you don't like the standard anime style it is a Japanese game, but the translation is very good, and it strikes the right balance between keeping the unique Japanese feel - mainly via optional tooltips that explain things in a light-hearted manner - and skipping details such as honorifics to make the story easier to read.
The core mystery is really fulfilling to figure out. I thought I had solved it multiple times before the game finally revealed the entire story.
There's also an anime sequel to this game called Canaan that's worth watching as well that wraps up some loose ends.
I received AA in a humblebundle, and played it through in a single sitting. Highly recommend this one! What are the big Visual Novels that you've tackled already?
Let me know of the major ones you've played, and I'll try and give some more recs based off of that. All of them, actually!
Zero Escape is my favorite, though. Perfect, I'll try and branch out a little then. I might not have as much to say about these ones, but that's because I haven't gotten to them yet though I have heard of their quality from other sources :.
The House in Fata Morgana. Muv-Luv Triple Threat. Quantum Suicide : coming soon in February Umineko: When They Cry. VA Hall-A.
Chaos;Child : Note, you may want to wait for Chaos;Head to get released, Spike Chunsoft has been on a roll with announcing ports of the SciAdv games recently.
Ultimate Space Commando. The Spacials. Galaxy Squad. All the Knuckle Cracker games. As a fan of roguelites and shoot em ups, Monolith has been one of the biggest sleeper hits in my library.
Lastly for now , Assault Android Cactus is bar none the best twin stick arcade shooter I've ever played. Monolith also has a free demo at itch.
Do you know Synthetik free demo-ish version? It's a roguelite top-down shooter. Has some issues from amateur devs and pretty much requires Steam Input reconfig to play on controller, but the game aside from that is pretty great and does a lot of meaty stuff with its weapons, classes, and items.
I rebought it this sale as it's now released from EA and it has improved so much, charming little throwback to a time when sports games didn't revolve around lootboxes and purchaseable currency.
Highly Recommended. Description: "The Bloons are back and better than ever! Get ready for a massive 3D tower defense game designed to give you hours and hours of the best strategy gaming available.
Orcs Must Die! Description: "Slice them, burn them, skewer them, and launch them - no matter how you get it done, orcs must die in this fantasy action-strategy game from Robot Entertainment.
Ya I also recommend Orces Must Die. It's a 3rd person action tower defense game. Orcs Must Die 2 is also recommend as it's the same game with just more stuff but also adds co-op.
I had a good time with orcs must die. I never finished it but it was a fun coop game. Not sure it would hold my attention quite enough on its own.
I bought Shatter from a previous hidden gem thread and loved it very much so I'm passing it on. Very stylish and fun block-breaker game!
Pony Island and The Hex. Both are by the same developer and both are genre-bending and strange narrative games.
It's hard to say a ton without spoilers but I'll give it a go. Pony Island's premise is that you are playing an arcade game that starts to have glitches and other events occuring that cause the game to go from a game about a platforming pony to programming settings and looking for secrets to beat a great evil.
The Hex is about a collection of abandoned game characters from different genres meeting up in a tavern. You explore their connections to each other through flashbacks and learn why they all came to the tavern and what the Hex is.
Gameplay-wise, you experience all their genres from RPG to fighter to twin-stick shooter, etc. If you like puzzle games, you should not pass on this game.
Its creator Stephen Lavelle, is very experienced at many puzzles game creation check out his website.
What this game does so beautifully is show, not tell. There are hardly any instructions, but you learn all of the intricate mechanics of the game through cleverly-devised levels.
The controls can be annoying at times, especially in the first few levels, but you will adapt if you persevere. I was a little fearful at first it would be too difficult, but I have found the first few hours of playing pretty tractable, especially if you grab a friend or another pair of eyes when you're stuck.
It gets frequent updates and the developer is fairly active on the steam discussion page. The game itself is a bullet hell rogue-lite, with the points you earn each run unlocking new equipment, mod trees, and eventually "super mods" which are a big buff that you can build towards in a run.
There are tons of different setups you can use that all play very differently. It's kinda like asteroids cranked up to Northern lion did a quick let's play of it recently and I immediately added to shortlist, waiting for pay day now.
This game is Darkest Dungeon but if you were playing as the minions. Iratus is in EA still, but there have already been seasonal content releases, and the game is actively being balanced by the devs.
I dig the graphics, the atmosphere, and to an extent the forced progression. IMO this is a side effect of elimitating the grind that partly defined DD: in Iratus the gap between easy and normal is pretty massive.
Normal mode is pretty unforgiving, and restarting is often necessary if you're not as good at the game as you think you are this is me.
But then, I don't mind the pain. Really dig this, it will tide me over until DD2, it may do the same for you. I'd recommend Undermine.
It's a Roguelite game where you play as one of an endless stream of peasants diving deeper into the mines to get gold, unlock new NPCs and creatures, and defeat many types of enemies.
It's currently early access, but has a ton of content already. The latest patch was just a couple of days ago, and the developer is very active.
I'm not normally a huge fan of Roguelite games, but this one is different. There's a ton of permanent upgrades to get, and different synergies to explore.
You have a fair amount of control on the runs later, so you never feel that you have a run that you simply can't win due to RNG. There's more content coming, so the game is only going to get better and better.
I just picked this one up and started playing it yesterday. Not bad, but I don't know if it'll be enough to pull me away from Children of Morta.
You don't get anything besides the pickaxe, but you do get certain artifacts for the thrown pickaxe which can change how it behaves.
It's still early access though, so more artifacts will likely be added. Death's Hangover : A fun little breakout style game with a funny story involving multiple routes and endings.
Gameplay is pretty fun with different powerups and level gimmicks. I seriously got no clue what to purchase this Winter Sale.
Any hidden gem recommendation for a souls-like and roguelike fan? I'm presuming you're at least familiar with most of the other big Soulslike games, so here's some weirder recommendations.
If you're also a fan of 2d platformers, and you've beaten Hollow Knight into the ground, I'd recommend checking out Salt and Sanctuary and Valdis Story.
You might also be interested in Tangledeep , if you didn't already get it from Humble earlier this year. If you're a horror fan, Infernium might be for you.
I'm a fan of Grim Dawn and modded Torchlight 2. I'm not a particular fan of roguelikes, so hopefully someone else can tag in and suggest good ones for you.
Everything else doesn't seem to be for me. Enjoyed the former and haven't played the latter yet but thanks for the reminder!
Forewarning if you know nothing about it: it's tough. It's very much akin to a Metroidvania version of a Souls-like game.
Check out Synthetik: Legion Rising. You can try the free Synthetik: Arena version to see if it might be interesting. Shoutout to Virgo vs the zodiac.
The sale isn't that deep because it just came out, but it's one of my favorite games of the year already.
If you're looking for a turn based indie game it's the right way to go, and you can pick it up for about 15 dollars.
The devs are dedicated at putting out free releases it's a small team, so it's usually a few weeks between updates but they're transparent about what they're working on, super involved with the community, and honestly making the most intense and balanced shooter I've ever played.
A lot of banter but they're the funniest dudes around and nothing is ever too serious. Any particular servers you're willing to shout out here?
My buddy and I have the game and are always down for a good time. CryoFall A 2D topdown multiplayer survival game Think Rust maybe , pretty grindy at times but its cool to play with friends or join a group Solo its a HUGE grind , but if you want a chill experience you can always pick a PvE server instead.
Super fun, fast-paced, action platformer developed and self-published by Screwtape Studios from Brisbane, Australia. I'm curious to hear more thoughts on this.
I love fast paced platformers, but only ones that focus more on interesting, complex platforming a la Splasher, Guacamelee or Celeste although celeste's difficulty is borderline too much for me.
Not so interested in ones that focus more on crazy difficulty like Super Meat Boy or ones that are more combat focused. The Summer and Winter sales are the big ones.
