Games on Steam is a weekly installment that tackles the latest and greatest Indie games from this popular platform. Today, we will try to escape our psychotic GF, get sucked into a magical book, learn about the pros and cons of driving a monster truck, and try not to blink.
Doctor Who: The Lonely Assasins
To start, we have a great adaptation of one of the most popular British sci-fi shows. The lonely assassins builds on a cult Blink episode and features terrifying statues known as Weeping Angels. This is an engaging found-phone mystery filled with cryptic puzzles, smart references, jumpscares, and multiple endings. Even if you are not familiar with Doctor Who (how dare you), The Lonely Assasins will grip you until the end.
Saiko No Sutoka
Saiko No Satuka is a survival horror in which you have to escape from the clutches of a female serial killer Saiko Chan. Rather than just kill you, she likes to play with her victims, switching from a creepy Yandere to an aggressive Yangire state. Saiko’s AI is pretty good, which makes her quite scary, as you are never sure how she would respond. In short, Saiko No Sutoka is a solid atmospheric horror game with multiple endings and affordable price that will leave you disturbed.
Next, we have a short but adorable casual puzzler. Sizeable gives you dozens of dioramas to explore by manipulating the size of key elements, which often has interesting consequences. The gameplay mechanic is simple and somewhat intuitive, but also rewarding. If you are looking for a relaxing and creative puzzler that doesn’t expect you to commit hours of your time, Sizeable is where it’s at.
Fate of Kai
Fate of Kai is a refreshing adventure that plunges you into a magical book that seems to have a life of its own. Each chapter of Kai’s story is like a maze that you will have to master before moving forward. Challenging puzzles are solved not by controlling what your character does, but by what he thinks. Fate of Kai has mesmerizing illustrations and an engaging storyline that work well together. Although a bit short, this is one of the best visual novels around that would be a shame to miss.
Can’t Drive This
Lastly, we have an utterly chaotic co-op party racing game. In Can’t Drive This there are 2 roles: one of you builds the road in real-time while the other player manipulates through this course with a monster truck. Go too slow, and your truck will explode in bits and pieces. The game has a local and online mode, and up to 4 players can play at once. Depending on your skills, Can’t Drive This can certainly live up to its name, but it’s so fun to play that I don’t give a damn.
