Welcome to the newest edition of New Games on Steam! We got something for everybody, whether you are into angry rabbits, blood-thirsty giants, (sort of) sexy witches, or aspiring thieves. And so it goes.
Mace and Grace
For starters, we have a kickass casual VR game. Set in a fantasy medieval period, Mace and Grace puts you in the shoes of a giant who is ready to do anything to protect his kingdom. Although it has cartoony graphics, the game is fairly bloody, and you can expect to see heads of your enemies rolling about at all times. Mace and Grace also challenges you to get creative with the ways in which you dismember your foes, giving you weapons like axes, morningstars, maces, and spears. Lastly, the game also has well-developed mechanics, which is really good news.
Angry Bunny 3: Virus
Angry Bunny series gave me immediate flashbacks to the adventure games of my youth like Spyro and Crash Bandicoot, which can only be a good thing. The 3rd installment continues to charm with its humor and wacky characters. The premise is simple, you need to collect magic crystals to destroy virus eggs and free up your bunny pals. Although there are few bugs, considering the price ($2) and a fairly big amount of content, Angry Bunny is a no-brainer for the fans of a genre.
One Dreamer: Prologue
One Dreamer is a free-to-play indie flick that puts you in the skin of Frank, a stressed-out game dev. As such, you can expect to solve puzzles based on code and even program some objects in-game. Don’t worry, although it tends to be realistic, the code is fairly easy to understand. Furthermore, the pixel-art and atmosphere are both very well done, making me eager to watch out for the next installments in the series.
Ever wanted to be a robber? Picklock is an alias of a professional thief who decided to go back to what he was good at. The magic of this game is in replayability. It’s your choice, whether you want to listen to your gut or craft a step-by-step plan to get the goods. Once you get that money, it’s time to spend it on a new car, or maybe redesign your home. And then, just do it all over again.
Black Book: Prologue
Lastly, we have an intriguing mix of adventure and card RPG. Black Book follows a story of Vasilisa, who is on her way to become a powerful witch. On your journey through beautiful rural lands, you will be helping humans by engaging with dark forces of Slavic myths. Black Book is surely inspired by Slay the Spire, but also has an amazing atmosphere and visuals that put it in a category of its own.
