And the Winner is…
So 19 games get the honor of joining Steam’s catalogue - nice! Out of the games that didn’t reach our blog, Afterfall: Insanity left me with a good impression. Of course, the reviews for the game are already out, and we know that it has a b-game (hey I invented a new term) quality because of the cheesy voice acting and the low level of polish. But the developer promises that in this Extended Edition they will fix most of the issues, so I’m pretty excited.
Folk Tale looked good enough for me to remember its name. PC gamers are always in need for a new take on Settlers. Another guaranteed entry enjoyed Giana Sisters. As expected in this early batch there are no point and click adventures featured, which is a damn shame, because most are finished quality games with plenty of critical praise.
Yes indeed. Steam has just announced the next patch of games that have been greenlighted! 19 games and 2 mods join in the waiting line-up of 9 others (originally 10, but out of those only McPixel has been released so far), the games include…
Afterfall InSanity Extended Edition
Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams (Project Giana)
Interstellar Marines *
Lost Story: The Last Days of Earth #
Miner Wars 2081 *
Octodad: Dadliest Catch *
POSTAL 2 COMPLETE
Secrets of Grindea
The Stanley Parable: HD Remix
Names with # symbol mean that they’re mods for Half-Life 2. Names with * symbol are the one’s me or TA have mentioned here (in this case though, all of them were posted by TA).
Personal opinions? Well, I liked some of them, but few others not. Blockscape looks like a boring Minecraft rip-off, the Intruder looks unfinished and based on overall idea it sounds like a Slenderman rip-off with a twist, Gnomoria looks like a shameless Dwarf Fortress rip-off (albeit with better interface and graphics, I give it that), Yogventures looks so bland that the only people that seemed to have voted for it is the Yogcast fandom (which is apparently that big enough fandom to get it accepted and no, Im not part of it and after this post I’m probably never will be accepted into it) and finally, Stanley Parable seems too artsy for my taste. The rest I would probably like to play someday (not that I wouldn’t be willing to try any of the games I just mentioned).
Also, Postal 2 is the first game to get Greenlighted that actually has a big development company behind it. Admittedly I like Postal 2 (its lot better than 3), but I would have gone for the Silent Storm instead. And of course the usual “None of the games I blogged haven’t been Greenlighted”, with the exception of last batch.
If you want to comment on this TA, either edit this post or make a new blogpost. Thankyou.
