Steam Greenlight is a competitive place. Our Steam Greenlight campaign has been hard fought thus far. We know just how big of a role promotion plays in getting your game onto Steam. It’s time for our semi-regular piece where we highlight some unique, cool, or just plain fun Steam Greenlight games.
It’s time for…
Battle Brothers is a really fun looking strategy game. The art is similar to Diego’s style. (Gorgeous and hand-painted.) Some of the game is procedurally generated, so that’s a replayability plus. If you’re curious to try before giving them the vote, you can even go download their combat demo: http://battlebrothersgame.com/downloads/.
I Can’t Escape: Darkness
On the opposite end of the sprectrum: A horror game! Oh my! The game looks pretty cool, and apparently it’s a follow up from a game on Newgrounds! (http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/610205) It’s refreshing to see new entries into the genre.
Ultraworld looks cool and unique. It has a seemingly interesting narrative to deliver. The color palette is appetizing. It is, a bit of a mystery, though. It will be interesting to see more. Again, if you don’t want to wait for Steam, you can check it out at http://visit-ultraworld.com.
Thanks for reading! Please check out the projects on Steam, give them a thumbs up, and spread the word! Every bit helps.
After a two month cliff-hanger from episode 2, Wizards of the East Coast, the second half of the story comes in like a wrecking ball. (Sorry, I had to.)
Check out the latest and greatest episode of Indie Van Game Jam, “Wreckingball Run.” In this episode, the mystery producer from Episode 2 asks us to make them a branded game that has them look “cool,” “hip,” and “with it.” We take the task head on as we take the detour to Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
This episode features Pixel Dash Studios, who just released Road Redemption on Steam Early Access.
Head over to IndieVanGameJam.com to see the episode and download the game.
As an indie worried about our Steam Greenlight campaign, we know just how big of a role promotion plays in getting your game onto Steam. Every once in a while we dig around Steam Greenlight, find some really cool projects, and help spread the word about them!
Here’s how it works:
Here are this weeks picks for games that are in The Hunt For Steam Greenlight.
Words for Evil
A typing fantasy RPG? Yeah. The trailer looks pretty awesome and reminds me of games such as 10,000,000 and what we were trying to create, This is My Quest. It purports to have complex combat, multiple varieties of word game based on the action at hand, and tons of content.
24 Killers intrigued me with its cool artwork. It turns out this one dude, Todd Luke, is like Shakey Graves for indie games. According to his Kickstarter, which was successfully funded, he is tackling the game’s programming, art, and music alone. It’s an adventure game where “four miscreant spirits are possessing the people in a small island town, and you’re responsible for finding them.” Sign me up!
A Rite from the Stars
A Rite from the Stars rounds our collection this week. It looks playful. It looks interesting. It has care and attention dripping from it’s pores. The trailer is well done. This game takes our third vote this week.
That’s all folks! Thanks for reading. Please check out the projects on Steam, give them a thumbs up, and spread the word! Every bit helps.
