Steam High Five: April 5, 2019 Edition

Welcome back to our weekly peek into Steam’s newly released games. It’s probably obvious by now that I tend to steer away from big-ticket releases. Honestly, they have enough exposure, and I like to shine a light on smaller up-and-comers with potential.  Let’s all do ourselves a favor and embark on an unguided journey to see what else might be out there! This week’s choices take us into zombie-infested wastelands, involve us in a heroic adventure to save a lost love, hand us the keys to conquering MarZ, explore “totally accurate physics”, and pit us against hordes of rogue machines. Quite the bouquet of varied genres, if I may say. The VR selections include a stylized medieval adventure, a unique tactical brawl, and a zany space adventure. Pick one or pick them all and enjoy.
