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.
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.
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.
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.
