Games on Steam

Games on Steam is a weekly installment that tackles the latest and greatest Indie games on this popular platform. Today, we’ll cover roguelite RPG, off-beat Battle Royale, tense survival horror, addictive hack-and-slash strategy, and bizarre acid shooter.

Banners of Ruin

Banners of Ruin is a roguelite deck-building strategy similar to Slay the Spire. In it, you will be commanding a party of up to 6 characters on their journey through Dawn’s Point. Each character has its own set of cards and abilities, so creating a team that builds-off each other is very important. As your party gains experience, they will level up, unlocking new upgrades. Banners of Ruin is pretty challenging, so expect to constantly learn and adapt. Although it’s still in early access, there is enough content to last you for quite a while.

Soulfire

Here we have a souls-like Battle Royale fighter game. Soulfire throws you in an intense showdown against 19 teams to find out who is the most skillful player. The game utilizes a 2.5D combat system that rewards tactful fighting and there’s a good range of weapons, all of which have their pros and cons. Soulfire is completely free to play, and although it’s still in early access, I can easily see this becoming fairly popular as it’s unlike any other Battle Royale title.

Soulfire is not your typical Battle Royale Steam

Scrutinized

Scrutinized is the newest title from Reflect Studios – a developer of the infamous Welcome to the Game. This is a survival horror that puts you in the role of a criminal analyst Luna Youngman. By using your computer to search through the report database, your goal is to find if the numerous crime reports hold water or not. As if this is not challenging enough, you will also need to watch out for killers trying to break into your home. Although you spend much of the game behind the computer screen, Scrutinized has a very creepy atmosphere that will easily make you feel paranoid.

The Riftbreaker: Prologue

Riftbreaker is a refreshing base-building hack-and-slash RPG. It’s set in a beautiful alien world, where you’ll have to gather, build, and defend your base from an onslaught of vicious slimy creatures. All of this for the ultimate goal of constructing a rift that will take you back to Earth. Although this is a demo that can be finished in an hour or two, we can already see that Riftbreaker has struck a balance between building, fighting, and exploration. The game is filled with visceral battles and is one of the most promising games on Steam.

Post Void

Lastly, we have one of the year’s most unique shooters. Post Void is a surreal retro shooter filled with dazzling imagery. It’s chaotic, relentless, and ridiculously fun. Your goals are simple: move as quickly as possible and dismember waves of enemies to keep yourself and your idol alive. Post Void features short, procedurally generated levels, that will reward you with upgrades upon completion. Add to this an intense atmosphere and affordable price, and it’s easy to see that we may be talking about the best Indie shooter of 2020.

Games on Steam

Games on Steam is a weekly installment that tackles the latest and greatest Indie games on this popular platform. Today, we talk about frustrated toys, futuristic racer, awe-inspiring ancient worlds, and one chill monster.

A Monster’s Expedition

To start, we have a relaxing puzzle adventure that puts you in the role of a cute monster eager to learn more about the mythical human race. The game comes from Draknek, a studio that made Cosmic Express and A Good Snowman is Hard to Build. Similarly, A Monster’s Expedition also features smart puzzles that revolve around pushing trees and creating pathways to reach new islands. Furthermore, the game is absolutely huge, and can easily glue you in for hours on end.

Angry Toys

You came to your grandmother’s house for a visit. In it, you find your childhood toys, although they are not as innocent as they once seemed. Unfortunately, they become erratic at night, and you will have to monitor them through toy cameras to keep a safe distance. This is a basic premise of Angry Toys, a horror game with a vibe that’s very similar to 5 Nights at Freddy’s. If you are a fan of survival games that rely on jump scares and creepy toys, you can’t go wrong with this one.

Shhhh…. go to sleep Steam

Inertial Drift

Inertial Drift is not your typical arcade racer. For one, developers decided to completely reimagine the usual mechanics by bringing in twin-stick control mechanics. It’s fairly easy to pick up, but mastering it will prove to be challenging. Especially considering each car handles differently. Inertial Drift also has a distinct, retro/comic visual style that looks very cool. If you are at all interested in cars, you won’t be disappointed with this baby.

A badass and refreshing arcade racer Steam

Omno: Prologue

Next, we have a prologue of a promising upcoming adventure. Omno is a vivid ancient world full of mystery. You will explore it as a small kid, and on your way, you will befriend strange creatures and solve various puzzles. Although it is fairly short, Omno immersed me immediately and it’s has a great potential.

Fantasy of Expedition

Lastly, here’s an action-adventure roguelike Indie called Fantasy Expedition. In it, you are ordered from Heavens to go on an important expedition. To survive, you will have to carefully build a powerful army by combining the unique skills of each follower. Also, the game lets you decide if you want to micromanage your army or let AI take care of everything, which is cool. All in all, Fantasy of Expedition mashes elements of Slay the Spire and auto chess successfully and can easily be enjoyed.

Samira’s skills

So far, Samira’s skills had been shown quite superficially in her official trailer. With the skills summary, you can now get a better sense of your potential in Summoner’s Rift. Below, check out the passive and skills that the new shooter has:

Passive – Audacious Boost

Sequential and unrepeated skills increase Samira’s Style score by one letter, ranging from ‘E’ to ‘S’. Each Style score grants her additional Movement Speed. Samira can deal damage from a distance with his pistols or melee with his sword. The sword deals additional magic damage. In addition, the champion can toss enemies whose movements have been weakened by her allies into the air, prolonging the displacement effect.

Natural Talent (Q)

Samira fires directly with his pistols at a distant enemy. Opponents within melee range take a sword strike instead of a shot.

Sharp Maelstrom (W)

Samira spins the sword around her, dealing damage twice to nearby enemies, in addition to destroying opposing projectiles that are within the area and that enter the area during the skill.

Indomitable Momentum (E)

Samira advances and cuts through enemies (and allies) dealing magic damage and gaining additional Attack Speed for a period. Eliminating enemy champions resets the cooldown of the ability.

Infernal Trigger (R)

Samira fires a volley of shots, hitting all surrounding enemies ten times over the duration. Each shot deals Physical Damage, applies Life Theft and can cause Critical Strike. She can only cast the ability if her Style score is ‘S’ (maximum).

Samira PsyOps

Riot Games says the new PsyOps-themed skins will be released in this update. While Kayle, Zed, Pyke and Viktor received their PsyOps skins this Thursday (17th). Along with the LeBlanc Championship skin, Samira wins the skin on its launch, on September 21, this being its secondary skin. It is a military style outfit with several futuristic and technological elements. The other champions who already own their PsyOps outfits are Ezreal, Sona, Shen, Vi and Master Yi.
