The Best Steam Releases This Week – Undead Edition

May is quickly speeding by and for students of all ages that means the school year is almost over. Whether planning trips, working to offset the costs of schooling, or whiling away your summer months with aimless meandering, you know you’re gonna find time to game. As always, we have a few suggestions to get you started. Hopefully, any summer trips for you will not entail being dead, like our first selection, but if you’re intent on being dead, and then undead, perhaps the second game will whet your appetite with controlling hordes of lesser undead. Maybe delving into the wilds of high fantasy is more your speed or sci-fi space combat strategy. Or maybe you just want to go dungeon stomping with friends. If you’re looking for some VR fun, try batting away the little punks assaulting your castle, or swimming for your life in an underwater abyss, or going back to school… with zombies. It’s all good fun, and all to be had on Steam. Enjoy!
