Games on Steam is a weekly installment that tackles the latest and greatest Indie games on this popular platform. Today, we talk about quirky Vikings, the challenges of guiding spirits to the afterlife, return of the greatest samurai, and much more.
Beat Blast is a bullet hell game in which you obliterate your enemies to the sounds of music you create. Each combination of notes gives you different attacks, and there are also a multitude of weapons and skills to unlock which will give you some devastating combos. Beat Blast also features roguelite elements, which gives it some variation. Although it is challenging, the music aspect makes it pretty chill and refreshing. Steam
Hospitality is a claustrophobic psychological horror set in the confines of VR. Trapped in a wheelchair, you are only able to move your head, which sets you up perfectly for some terrifying scenes. Hospitality will adapt to your reactions to noise and shadows, so each player will have a slightly different experience. Save the length, this is a solid atmospheric horror that might keep you disturbed for quite some time.
If you are looking for an odd puzzle platformer that will keep you guessing, you might like Helheim Hassle. It puts you in the role of Bjørn, a sweet Viking who can detach and throw his limbs around. Save the comedic elements, you will use this quasi-superpower for solving puzzles and redirecting the attention of various Gods, dragons, and goblins. Hellheim Hassle is overflowing with quirky characters and hilarious moments that will appeal to the fans of dark comedy. It’s very charming and one of the best new adventure games on Steam.
In Spiritfarer, you take the role of Stella, a ferry master who guides the spirits of the deceased to the afterlife. This is a management game, so you will also do things like farming, harvesting, and mining, to build a boat and explore your imaginative surroundings. Spiritfarer is a relaxing, casual fairytale, filled with beautiful hand-drawn scenes and emotional storylines.
Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time
Lastly, we have a game based on Tartakovsky’s infamous cartoon series. Battle Through Time brings a completely new story that builds on series finale and is voiced by original actors. The game successfully captured the essence of Samurai Jack and there are many throwback moments that will make you nostalgic. Also, the fight mechanic is done pretty well, and there are dozens of weapons for you to master. If you are a fan of the series, Battle Through Time is definitely worth your money, although it lacks in length and replayability.
There are always more fun games to be played. To find the best ones, check our previous edition of Games on Steam here.
