New Games on Steam is a weekly installment on the latest and greatest Indie games. Today, we dive in to solve murder in VR, explore mysterious castle, fix a spaceship that would put Elon Musk to shame, and save our love from the realm of shadows. There’s no time to waste!
Let’s start with something cute. In ArchiTac, you will play as an astronaut who got marooned on a deserted planet. It’s your job to explore your surroundings and collect resources to fix your ship and flee this godforsaken place. Expect to do a lot of building to reach various floating islands and their inhabitants, who are not too eager to see you.
For this week’s dose of RPG madness, we have Gatewalkers. This is a co-op survival game set in a procedurally generated world filled with deadly enemies and inhospitable conditions. Although Gatewalkers is still in Alpha, there are a lot of things to explore, which adds to replayability. As expected, you can choose to play as archer, mage, and warrior, or go create your own unique playstyle. So far, this looks like an interesting mix of Runescape and Tibia, and I wonder where it might go next.
The Rig: A Starmap to Murder
The Rig is a rare breed of noir space adventure made for VR. The game is heavily story-driven and will task you with solving a murder on a massive spaceship and finding your brother. The Rig is very atmospheric and immersive, although the puzzles are relatively easy. All in all, this is a good game for a casual evening, as it will take you around an hour to solve its mysteries.
Eternal Hope: Prologue
Eternal Hope is a vivid adventure of a boy named Ti’bi who embarks on an adventure to save his love. To do this, you will need to master multi-dimensional travel, defeat enemies, and solve various puzzles. Eternal Hope is reminiscent of Limbo, and features equally intriguing world, although more vibrant. This is only the first installation of a story and it’s completely free to play.
Little Witch Nobeta
Little Witch Nobeta will satisfy both anime and Dark Souls enthusiasts. As Nobeta, you will explore the grounds of an ancient castle and use your magic to defeat challenging enemies. You can choose between Ice, Fire, Arcane, and Thunder spells, or, if you are loco, go full melee. Although, the game will punish you all the time as you search for weaknesses, yet it rarely seems unfair. Ultimately, Little Witch Nobeta is already well-polished as an early-access game and offers tons of content at a reasonable price.
