Powerhoof promises a story with multiple twists which draws inspiration from famous horror writers like Carpenter and King. How can you go wrong with that?

To our delight, CARRION switches usual roles by putting you in command of an amorphous creature of mysterious origins. You are pissed, and rightfully so, as you begin to consume puny humans that have decided to imprison you. While on your delightful path filled with panic and destruction, expect to unlock many new abilities, each of them more terrifying than the last. Sounds like an interesting way to let off a little bit of steam, no?

To lighten things up a bit, let's jump back into the 1920s where you will play as the world's most famous detective – Lord Winklebottom. Unfortunately, you've come at a time when he is presented with his most difficult case yet. As you might have deducted, this game mixes Holmes-like story with tongue-in-cheek humor and challenging puzzles that will leave you wanting more.
To conclude the Steam Game Festival list, we have a physics-focused game that will put you into the role of an 1970's astronaut. You will realize very soon that the absence of gravity is very problematic, as it will trigger various scenarios that you will have to wiggle through by pushing and twisting various levers. Among others, expect to learn how to construct space telescopes and research interesting new botanical species. You can see how the game looks in action here.
