Wrestling games are a personal favorite of mine. Its a niche subgenre of fighting and sports and there aren’t many out there, with the biggest being the yearly WWE-game. Its even smaller on Indie-scale, where the only notable one I can think of are the one’s Mat Dickie (Yes, the same guy who did the Jesus game “The You Testament”. Wrestling games are some of his more better works). While this game is pretty much unfinished, it looks really promising and having a huge mod support is something that might make it one of the best wrestling games out there.

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.

Greenlighting time!

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
AirBuccaneers
Blockscape
Contrast *
Fly’n
Folk Tale
Forge
Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams (Project Giana)
Gnomoria
Interstellar Marines *
Lost Story: The Last Days of Earth #
Miasmata *
Miner Wars 2081 *
NEOTOKYO #
Octodad: Dadliest Catch *
Perpetuum *
POSTAL 2 COMPLETE
Secrets of Grindea
The Intruder
The Stanley Parable: HD Remix
Yogventures!

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.

About the Game:Miasmata is a first-person survival/adventure game, developed from the ground-up by brothers Joe and Bob Johnson. You play as Robert Hughes, a plague-stricken scientist on a journey to discover a cure. Your adventure begins on the shores of a remote island called Eden. Long ago, Eden was inhabited by a group of indigenous people, whose extant monuments still decorate the island landscape.Eden is now home to a scientific research outpost, and it is your hope to reunite with your colleagues working there. Unfortunately, you’ll soon discover that something has gone terribly wrong.The Gameplay:Miasmata is a game of survival, exploration and discovery. Our goal was to create gameplay that was unconventional. We wanted an immersive experience that gives the player the freedom to discover the world at his/her own pace and in his own way. During his adventure, the player will encounter a mysterious and deadly creature. This creature can stalk the player for miles, lurking behind grasses and vegetative cover. By treading carefully and quietly, the player may be able to elude the creature. If he’s careless, however, the player will be forced to confront the creature head-on. The island of Eden is filled with dozens of plants and fungi, many of which have unique medicinal properties. Some of these plants hold the secret to curing the plague, so the player must harvest them and run lab experiments to determine their worth. Exploration is a key component to Miasmata, so we developed an interesting cartography system. The player can use landmarks, such as ruins and statues, to triangulate his location and construct a map of Eden’s boundaries and contours.The Technology:The graphics technology powering Miasmata is our MILO engine. MILO is a brand new engine and tool-chain, written from scratch by Joe himself. It is state of the art, featuring outstanding lighting/shader effects and innovative real-time simulations.

About the Game:

Miasmata is a first-person survival/adventure game, developed from the ground-up by brothers Joe and Bob Johnson. You play as Robert Hughes, a plague-stricken scientist on a journey to discover a cure. Your adventure begins on the shores of a remote island called Eden. Long ago, Eden was inhabited by a group of indigenous people, whose extant monuments still decorate the island landscape.

Eden is now home to a scientific research outpost, and it is your hope to reunite with your colleagues working there. Unfortunately, you’ll soon discover that something has gone terribly wrong.

The Gameplay:

Miasmata is a game of survival, exploration and discovery. Our goal was to create gameplay that was unconventional. We wanted an immersive experience that gives the player the freedom to discover the world at his/her own pace and in his own way.

During his adventure, the player will encounter a mysterious and deadly creature. This creature can stalk the player for miles, lurking behind grasses and vegetative cover. By treading carefully and quietly, the player may be able to elude the creature. If he’s careless, however, the player will be forced to confront the creature head-on.

The island of Eden is filled with dozens of plants and fungi, many of which have unique medicinal properties. Some of these plants hold the secret to curing the plague, so the player must harvest them and run lab experiments to determine their worth.

Exploration is a key component to Miasmata, so we developed an interesting cartography system. The player can use landmarks, such as ruins and statues, to triangulate his location and construct a map of Eden’s boundaries and contours.

The Technology:

The graphics technology powering Miasmata is our MILO engine. MILO is a brand new engine and tool-chain, written from scratch by Joe himself. It is state of the art, featuring outstanding lighting/shader effects and innovative real-time simulations. Some of the unique features include: voxel-based volumetric clouds, advanced water reflection and refraction, volumetric lightshafts and atmospheric scattering simulations.

Miasmata’s island of Eden is dense and beautifully detailed. Its landscape is covered by forests with lush canopies. The terrain surfaces are blanketed by tufts of moss and grass. The forest floors have thick undergrowth and are littered with fallen leaves, rotting logs, stumps and sticks.

The creature is governed by a deep artificial intelligence. He uses sight, hearing and smell to track the player and react to his movements. Our robust path-finding algorithms allow the creature to find advantageous positions and trap the player.

Early System Requirements: These will change as we do more testing

32 Bit Windows XP or better
Memory: 4GB
CPU: Core 2 Duo or better(i5/i7 seems to make a big difference)
GPU: NVidia 8800GT or ATI 3850HD video card should play it well at good settings. 512Mb or more of video RAM is best.

************************************************************************************UPDATE #1 Hey everyone! We just wanted to thank you all again for the continued support (more than 70,000 unique visitors, unbelievable!). To show our gratitude, we’ll be giving away 3 free copies of Sang-Froid to 3 of our Facebook fans on the week of its release. Furthermore, we are currently sitting at 25th on Greenlight, and for each new rank we gain, we’ll add a free copy to the mix! Thanks again for sharing and for all the positive energy! www.sangfroidgame.com/facebook ************************************************************************************ Combining action and strategy in a unique way, Sang-Froid: Tales of Werewolves transports you into an epic folktale co-written with best-selling Canadian author Bryan Perro (Amos Daragon, Wariwulf), in which two feuding brothers will have to put aside their differences to save their sister, who is pursued by the Devil himself! This time however, sheer brute strength won’t be enough to save the day as your enemies are way stronger than you are. Only your wits and the ability to combine ingenious traps to setup deadly ambushes will give you a chance to see the sun rise again on your frozen piece of forest…
 Plan your strategy! - Take advantage of the calm during the day to fill your forest with all kinds of traps that are as inventive as they are deadly.
Hunt your enemies! - When night falls, use the wind and lure the diabolic beasts into your traps using bait… But watch out! You have to be on constant guard to make sure you don’t become the prey of the beasts you are tracking!
Fight heroically! - If some of the beasts get past your traps, that’s when it gets bloody! First you can shoot them with your trusty musket and then eliminate the ones that survive by slaughtering them with your axe! Action and carnage guaranteed!
Use fear to your advantage! - All the mechanics of the game revolve around the innovative concept of Fear Factor, which makes your ability to intimidate your enemy your best weapon. For example, use fire to frighten the wolves and scatter their packs.
Customize your character! - Choose one of the two O’Carroll brothers and develop your character using a skill system based on role-playing games (RPGs), making your hero as unique as he is powerful!
Discover a rich universe! - Immerse yourself in 19th century Canada where legends meet History in a world filled with lore and wonders. Buy historical weapons and items, fight mythical beasts and uncover the truth about werewolves…

Bunch of Canadian lumberjacks fighting against werewolf’s? Im more than okay with that. Already sounds way better than whatever generic fantasy-setting Obsidian is using with their game they Kickstarted recently.
