Games on Steam is a weekly installment that tackles the latest and greatest Indie games from this popular platform. Today, we will cover angry broccoli, musical RPG, an epic but depressing hero tale, and much more.
To kick things off, let’s start with one unique point-and-click exploration game. Mitoza is a short but sweet trip into the surreal that will keep you constantly stretching your head as you try to figure out what the hell is going on. In each scenario, the game presents you with 2 choices which lead to drastically different, and often hilarious, outcomes. Mitoza is completely free, so it doesn’t hurt to try it. One thing is certain, you will never look at broccoli in the same way again.
Everhood is a refreshing mix of RPG and adventure. In it, you take the role of a wooden doll that descends into a wild disco underworld. You know, the usual stuff. There, you will be involved in wacky musical battles against a slew of bizarre characters. The game has a retro feel, which only gets stronger with its impeccable soundtrack. Everlast also has an amazing story, full of twists and turns that will throw your understanding off balance. In short, if you are looking for a fun, challenging, and one of the more unconventional games on Steam, you are in for a treat.
The Life and Suffering of Sir Brante
If you like your books in a game format, then The Life and Suffering of Sir Brante might satisfy your appetites. This is a story-driven RPG that follows the path of an unconventional man in a ruthless world ruled by gods. The game takes you on a life-long journey in which every choice opens new possibilities, many of which have dire consequences. This was done extremely well, and the game doesn’t get old any time soon. If you love bittersweet and intricate plots and are ready to make some tough choices, this game will entertain you for quite a while.
Loop Hero is an inventive roguelike card game from Four Quarters. It can be best described as a reversal of typical tower defense games, as you are in charge of creating terrain, buildings, and monsters that will fight your hero. With each pass through the loop, you will unlock new cards and classes, until you finally find and defeat the Lich that created the timeless loop. Even if you are not a fan of nostalgia-inducing pixel art, Loop Hero is a fresh and addictive experience that can easily impress.
Lastly, we have a solid top-down circuit racing simulator. Circuit Superstars puts a great focus on the handling of vehicles, so don’t expect any wild need-for-speed drifts here. The realism goes even deeper, as you can turn on tire degradation, engine wear, and fuel consumption. In this case, a good pit stop strategy becomes essential. Circuit Superstars also lets you test your racing skills online, against 11 other players. Although it is still in early access and may be a bit low on the content, Circuit Superstars has great potential and I can see it only getting better with time.
