On a normal day, about a dozen new games are released on Steam. And while we think that’s a good thing, it’s understandable that it’s hard to keep up. These potentially exciting gems are sure to be lost in a flood of new things to play unless you sort out every game that releases on Steam. So that’s what we did. If none of these interests you this week, we’ve put together best PC game You can play now and run the list 2020 games launched this year.
Release: September 24
Developer: Arkhouse Telegraph
Price: $ 3.99 | £ 2.89 | AU $ 5.95
From the creator The Search for Saturn: The Shadow of the Planet comes another action game that is surreal and vaguely uncomfortable. You play as the “nameless undead demon” in Cube Gothic, which adds a grotty layer of pixelated goth to the genre it’s pretty famous for. This undead demon needs to climb the Tower of Darkness to defeat the vampires waiting at the top. There seem to be some puzzle elements here, and the difficulty levels have been balanced to suit everyone – not just stupid masochists. It also has a “true story that makes sense” which, you can judge by.
Against the Moon
Release: September 25
Developer: Code Heretic
Price: $ 19.99 | £ 15.49 | AU $ 28.95
For fans of Slay the Spire and Monster Train, Against the Moon is a turn-based strategy game that puts you to work destroy the moon. The reason you have to destroy the moon (as you need) is because the Furos have settled there, strange creatures that threaten post-apocalyptic Earth. As you’d expect from a game that cites inspiration from Slay the Spire, there’s deck creation, but each card has two evolutionary paths, and there are several “epic heroes” in your squad, each with its own unique strengths and weaknesses.
Port Royale 4
Release: September 26
Developer: Gaming Minds
Price: $ 49.99 | £ 45.99 | AU $ 69.95
Port Royale 4 is a historical strategy game about taking control of the Caribbean and, as a result, controlling its trade. Set in the 17th century, you can play as Spanish, English, French or Dutch, and as you may have guessed, it’s not just about developing and maintaining trade routes: you’ll also fight to protect them. This fourth installment adds turn-based naval combat, so expect some tricky tactical maneuvers in this invaders sim.
Release: September 22
Developer: Scumhead, Mengo
Shrine II is basically a total conversion mod for the original Doom, except it’s available as a free standalone on Steam right now. It’s definitely worth a look even if you only have a cursory interest in retro shooters: the art style is much more cartoonish than the OG Doom, and it comes with modern conveniences like a mouse look. There are 32 levels, 20 weapons, 30 enemies, and tons of secrets. Did I mention it’s free? You don’t even need to own Doom.
Release: September 25
Developer: DbVectra, AlexTykh
Price: $ 6.99 | £ 5,19 | AU $ 9.95
This is an atmospheric terminal based horror game that may appeal to people who love Hacknet. Like that game, you interact with “old computers” with text commands to repair servers. The thing is, something creepy seems to be inhabiting this old server, something really, really scary. I love games like this: the old DOS aesthetic lends itself to the old horror.
