This is Bro Fist Simulator, a game about the subtle art of the bro fist. Just remember: always close your fingers on contact.
Finally, a game about the fall of communism... and jalopies. Jalopy is a Steam hopeful about exploring the former Eastern bloc in a motor vehicle that falls apart piece by piece. You’ll have to deal with everything from flat tires to busted carburetors in a procedurally generated world. Also weather. It looks great.
This image comes from a game called Balls Kicking Simulator 2016. I would say we’ve hit peak Steam Greenlight, but I’m not sure that’s possible anymore.
Wailing Heights has the strangest premise of any game I’ve seen on Steam Greenlight in quite some time, and that’s saying something. It’s about dead/undead rock stars, which is... weirdly timely, given recent events.
Coming soon to Steam... Bubsy? You remember Bubsy, right? It’s OK if you don’t. He was a—shall we say—less-than-beloved platforming mascot from gaming’s early days. A company called Retroism got the rights, and they’re trying to make it through Steam Greenlight. Good luck?
When it comes to guns, Stack Gun Heroes does not fuck around.
It’s called One Life, naturally.
If you ask me, the scariest things are the ones that feel a little too real.
And the game itself isn’t called Box Simulator, to boot. That’s a definite plus.
If you like your nightmares with an extra helping of anime-inspired ultraweird, you’ve come to the right place.
The latest SimCity was a total mess. It did have a few good ideas, though. Now one of them is getting its own game.
Man, hide-and-seek has gotten daaaaaark.
Mario is the ultimate video game hero, beloved by families the world over. Let’s kill him.
Horror games, movies, and books are at their scariest when things get a bit too real.
These days, most horror games have a certain “look” about them. Shadows everywhere, sickly colors, grit and grime on everything. Not Brighter Day, though.
It’s also very, very pretty.
Steam Greenlight is a mess. It's a system for bringing lesser-known games onto Valve's store that doesn't really help people who play games or make them. Two years ago, Valve said the plan was to kill it and replace it with something less broken. And yet, here it remains. So, what's next?
In an ideal world, Steam Greenlight would've opened the floodgates on an endless cascade of great games. In reality, it's led to a service stuffed with trash. Game makers scramble to get noticed, sometimes with underhanded tactics. Valve's introduced a new rule to curb this, but it doesn't solve the underlying problem.
The inspirations for Fossil Echo include not just Ico, but also Shadow of the Colossus, the Oddworld series, and Studio Ghibli's work. With influences like that, really, the beauty is pretty much a given.
