The interesting games looking for Greenlight votes. July 12 to 14 2015.

Another Steam Greenlight queue of games are in need of attention, and we’re here to give them just that. As is the way with these posts, I have a few rules I go over before I get to the games. I set these because otherwise, these posts would be just the same madhouse that Steam Greenlight finds itself.

  • Games must have a trailer.
  • I will not include a game that doesn’t look ready for Greenlight.
  • Games that aren’t in English will not be included. Sorry, I can’t write about games I don’t understand.
  • If a game looks like a joke submission, it won’t be included.
  • Finally, games that have been reposted to Greenlight and I’ve talked about them previously. They will also not be included.

Also this listing is for July 12 to 14, 2015.

Now to the good stuff. Games:

 

Title: Nayima

Genre: Puzzle

Art Style: 3D Third Person World

Synopsis: Tara the main character must bring light back to a world that has been stuck in eternal night.

Opinion: The game looks well made. The story while not the most original is still pretty cool.

Trailer:

 

Title: Nyctophilia

Genre: Horror

Art Style: 2D Side Scrolling Pixel

Synopsis: A horror game not about monsters, or weird maniacs of the night. But rather the things that go on inside your head. This game will be free to play.

Opinion: Creepy, weird, and interesting. I love the guitar music in the trailer.

Trailer:

 

Title: Fat Baby Galaxy

Genre: Shooter, Arcade, Platformer

Art Style: 2D Side Scroller

Synopsis: A hyper game, with fast platforming and shooting. It’s all about doing things quickly.

Opinion: If the trailer is any indication, speed is definitely a factor as is ridiculousness.

Trailer:

 

Title: Wish – Tale of the Sixteenth Night of Lunar Month

Genre: Visual Novel

Art Style: 2D Hand Drawn

Synopsis: You play as Tenka, a man who wishes he had the supernatural powers of those around him. Finding himself ordinary, he hopes that he can be of use to those protecting the shrine with him. This game is crowd funding on Kickstarter.

Opinion: Looks like a pretty standard visual novel with lots of drama and intrigue going on.

Trailer:

 

Title: Huebots

Genre: Puzzle

Art Style: 2D Top Down

Synopsis: Using robots and colors you must get your robots to their correct color exit.

Opinion: Pretty standard puzzle game, matching colored robots and getting them to move around.

Trailer:

 

Title: Delta Light

Genre: FPS, Shooter

Art Style: 3D Block FPS

Synopsis: Quake style inspired shooter. Blast your way through enemies.

Opinion: The enemies in the trailer don’t look the greatest, they do just stand there and attack. It still has a promising look to it.

Trailer:

 

Title: Dumuzid

Genre: Puzzle, RPG

Art Style: 2D Top Down

Synopsis: You vs Them. You are a shape in a turn based procedurally generated world, you grow bigger by attaching to an enemy. The bigger you are the more powerful you become, but if you’re smaller you are able to maneuver easier.

Opinion: It looks a bit like a weird tetris game with RPG elements thrown in. It’s a good weird though.

Trailer:

 

Title: Vivid Wolf

Genre: Puzzle, Platformer

Art Style: 2D Side Scroller

Synopsis: You play as Vivid a young girl with the power to switch between colors in order to get around the world.

Opinion: Quirky looking platformer, hopefully it isn’t too reliant on the color portion of game because that might get a bit stale.

Trailer:

 

Title: Tower Unite

Genre: Miscellaneous

Art Style: 3D World

Synopsis: From the creators of a mod for GMOD called, GMMOD Tower. It’s a virtual space to play games with friends and hang out. This game is crowd funding on Indiegogo.

Opinion: It is not my type of game, but I can see why some might like a space to hang out with friends in a virtual realm.

Trailer:

 

Title: Planetbase

Genre: Strategy, Simulation

Art Style: 3D Isometric Planets

Synopsis: Land on a strange and weird planet. Then build a base to survive what the world has to throw at you. It’s a city builder on a strange planet.

Opinion: It looks good. The worry with city building games is striking that balance between a good hard challenge and well getting trampled on by the game.

Trailer:

 

Title: Toby: The Secret Mine

Genre: Puzzle, Platformer

Art Style: 2D Side Scroller, with a Shadow Character

Synopsis: Toby is stuck in a strange world with his friends kidnapped. He must find them before he himself is taken away.

Opinion: While the idea of a shadow character is a bit overused. I’m okay with games using it as long as they have a strong look and the gameplay to drive the game.

Trailer:

 

Title: King Lucas

Genre: Platformer

Art Style: 2.5D Side Scroller

Synopsis: King Lucas had an affair with a witch, and as a result the queen now lives with the princesses in another part of the castle. This castle is also a twisting blinding maze, no doubt caused by witch. The king sends out intrepid heroes to find his queen and princesses.

Opinion: It looks like a maze of a puzzle to get through.

Trailer:

 

Title: New York Mysteries: High Voltage

Genre: Puzzle

Art Style: 2D Hand Drawn

Synopsis: A crime wave is sweeping through 1950’s New York City. People are being murdered and left as only a pile of ash. Whitney Stone decides to find out what is going on.

Opinion: It looks like its more than a find the hidden objects in the picture kind of game. If they can tap into the vein of the old school point and click Laura Bow games, it will be good.

Trailer:

 

Title: Battlestation: Harbinger

Genre: Strategy, Simulation

Art Style: 2D Top Down

Synopsis: A rogue like real time strategy game, where you fly the best spaceships, and do your best to survive through the precariousness of space.

Opinion: It is inspired by FTL, so lets get that out of the way. It has its own unique look and as long as it has depth and is fun, well that’s all that matters.

Trailer:

Genre: Shooter

Art Style: 2D Top Down

Synopsis: A two player game where you spend the entirety of the game shooting at an opponent at the train station platform across from you. It is free to play.
