Games on Steam is a weekly installment that tackles the latest and greatest Indie games on this popular platform. This week, we’ll cover haunted houses, Scandinavian folklore, lustful succubus, crazy space shooter, and more.
To open up this week, we have a magical adventure called Röki. This is a fairy tale based on Scandinavian folklore stories. The game has many qualities: mesmerizing visual style, smart puzzles, and a great atmosphere that has darkish undertones. Röki also has an interesting set of characters that oscillate between being cute and creepy. The story will keep your interest throughout the game, and there’s enough complexity in gameplay to make it challenging. Overall, Röki seemingly has it all, which is quite a feat to achieve.
House on the Hill
We wouldn’t want to finish this week without disturbing you, so here it is! House on the Hill is a classic 1st person horror story about being stuck in an eerie mansion. This is a multiple-choice game, so you will have to run through it a few times to uncover all of its secrets and endings. Expect lots of puzzles, dramatic family secrets, hidden chambers, and all-around madness as you try to piece the story together and leave the mansion. All in all, House on the Hill ticks all the right boxes: suspense, intrigue, and horror. What more can you ask for?
Jets ‘n’ Guns 2
Feel like you don’t have enough chaos in your life? Don’t worry, Jets ‘n’ Guns 2 will take care of that. This is an intense side-scrolling shooter that will easily push you to the limits of your abilities. Jets ‘n’ Guns 2 improves on the ridiculousness on the original and gives you a huge arsenal of fire-blazing-hull-cutting-universe-ending weapons. Although it’s a bit short, levels and boss fights are as epic as the original, and the music is still badass.
Vibrant Venture is an old-school platformer/adventure. It lets you play with 4 characters, each of which has unique abilities that really add to the gameplay. The pixel art in the game is really solid, and the atmosphere is super chill. Most importantly, Vibrant Venture is really fun and the movement is very fluid. A perfect title for both, young and old.
SUCCUBUS thrusts you in the role of Vydija – a lustful demonic priestess. You’ve decided to stop fooling around, and regain control of your kingdom by obliterating your enemies. The game is somewhat disturbing and features partial nudity, so be warned. To keep things interesting, SUCCUBUSS has RPG elements and lets you pick between multiple weapons and magical attacks. Although combat is still somewhat basic, as a free game it has a lot of potential.
