The Best Steam Releases This Week

With the rebranding of our weekly highlight on newly released games, the criteria for the selections changes a little. While we intend to continue focusing most particularly on indie releases, our selections will now also include some of the bigger name games, should they release that week. This week’s selections include an iteration of Conan as you’ve never seen him before, in a survival RTS that pits the player against recurring waves of all that ails Hyborea, followed by a third-person procedural dungeon crawler with some unique mechanics and fun art. Next is a multiplayer FPS that implements player placed portals to gain an edge on the fly, followed by a promising deep diving simulator and adventure, and finally, an amusing city builder that brings attention to the humorously deviant side of your cities. VR selections also include a diving simulator but in a more hostile scenario, as well as a simulation of the Norse God Thor as you battle waves of giants to save the earth, and yet more sci-fi fun. Strap in and enjoy!
