The Best Steam Releases This Week

Summer. Let’s try that again. SUMMER! If you’re a minor in the US, you most likely have a couple of months of meaningless and mindless nothing to focus on and give your brains a recharge. But too much nothingness can’t be a good thing, so let’s liven things up with a foray of indie games of various types that can help stave off the looming oblivion that is absolute boredom. Let’s start with a fancy, sci-fi, cyberpunk dungeon crawler, or a wild ride in which you try to prove you didn’t kill your father. Of course, we have zombies and lots of them, along with a stylized, medieval RPG to explore. Don’t forget the demon-slaying cowboy, returned from the dead. If you’re looking for the VR goods, try your luck with a tower defense shooter, try to work your way out of an escape room, or dance the days away. Be sure to check back next week for more of our fresh indie selections!
