Steam High Five: April 12, 2019 Edition

I’m always amazed at the amount of constant new releases of indie games I see funneling into the Steam market. Honestly, I love it and often struggle to pick just five each week. So this is just me saying, hey! What we’re showing you here is just a taste, an arbitrary few that have caught my attention. If you aren’t seeing anything that speaks to you, don’t be afraid to hop on steam and do some tag searches of your own. Hundreds of games a month filter into Steam’s market, you’re bound to find something that satisfies your gaming needs. This week’s selections take us into an adventure with immortal Arthurian legends in Victorian times as they struggle to solve the mystery of Jack the Ripper, plunge us into the World War II battle at Normandy, send us on a sidescrolling quest to find a cure for a sickness we have fallen victim to, set us in arena battles against alien monsters, and send us on a mysterious and horrific experience as a homeless ex-soldier. Our VR selections take on a more tame aspect with a farming sim, a look into the deeps of the Arctic Ocean, and an experience of meditation and martial arts in a monastery. Remember, there’s always more to find.
