Games on Steam is a weekly installment that tackles the latest and greatest Indie games from this popular platform. Today, we will cover apocalyptic RPGs, illogical puzzler, a badass space sim, and more. Let’s dive right in.
Ender Lilies: Quietus of the Knights
To start, we have a dark action/fantasy RPG titled Ender Lilies. In it, you can play as a girl Lili or a knight, who traverse through a scary world of the Kingdom of End. On your journey, you will fight horrific demons in tense battles where every wrong move might be your demise. With over 20 skills to unlock, the fluid fighting mechanics never gets boring and lets you incorporate various strategies. Couple this with mesmerizing visuals, gloomy atmosphere, and great OST, and it’s easy to see why Ender Lilies gathered so much attention.
Lotus Reverie: First Nexus
Next, we have an interesting visual novel. Lotus Reverie is a story about the end of the world, with an emphasis on time management that makes it a bit similar to the Persona series. After a weird incident, mysterious tulpas were born and started using humans as hosts. Your goal is to be the last person standing, by defeating other hosts that carry tulpas. Lotus Reverie uses interesting mechanic and lets you choose between a battle, novel, and a mixed mode. It also has an intriguing story that blends humor with dark elements. If you are into visual novels, this is one of the better ones.
Cloud Climber is a quick adventure about the end of humanity. In it, you will explore abandoned towers to piece together the story of what exactly happened. The game has a strong atmosphere and an important message about what happens when greed takes over our better impulses. Short but sweet, Cloud Climber serves as a reminder of what really matters.
If you love frantic shooters and space simulators, then Everspace 2 is right up your alley. This is an intense single-player sim that lets you thoroughly explore planets and galaxies. Everspace 2 also has a lot of RPG elements, so you can mix weapons, modules, and perks to create your own perfect ship. The game also has a pretty engaging story, and although it’s still in early access, there are a ton of things to explore. In short, Everspace 2 seems like a well-rounded sim with a little bit of something for everybody.
Frame of Mind
Lastly, we have a puzzler that turns logic on its head. Frame of Mind places you in a weird world where you will have to think outside the box to solve dozen of puzzles. While not that long, the game won me over with beautiful artwork and quite original challenges. Frame of Mind is also free to play, so you have nothing to lose.
