As you are probably aware, there has been a big push for indie games lately. With Steam’s new Greenlight service being perfected as we speak, we are bound to see more and more indie games pop up on The Steamfeed on a weekly basis. These games tend to be affordable and consumable, which is exactly what developers need to stay afloat. This week is no exception as indie titles dominate the feature once again.
This light-based puzzler is cute and refreshingly animated. With shades of Limbo and Eufloria, you navigate your way through each level by way of a tiny spider.
In the dark and mysterious world of Closure, only what you see exists. Manipulate lights to phase objects in and out of reality in this multiple-award-winning puzzle game. Play as a strange spider-like demon who explores the stories of three human characters through beautiful, eerie environments such as a decrepit factory, a murky forest, an abandoned carnival, and the strange, surreal realm that connects them together.
Batman: Arkham City GOTY Edition
This game needs no introduction if you’re into Batman or recent video games. Here’s your chance to get in on the Dark Knight’s latest release.
No escape from Arkham City…the sprawling mega-prison in the heart of Gotham City, home to its most violent thugs and infamous super villains. With the lives of the innocent at stake, only one man can save them and bring justice to the streets of Gotham City… Batman.
To The Moon
RPG’s are often known for their epic, sweeping storylines and interesting combat systems. This SNES-style, top-down RPG title breaks that mold by telling a sweet, emotion-filled story of one man’s life and his dream to one day fly to the moon.
With each step back in time, a new fragment of Johnny’s past is revealed. As the two doctors piece together the puzzled events that spanned a life time, they seek to find out just why the frail old man chose his dying wish to be what it is.
A true arcade-style side-scrolling shooter in the vein of Metal Slug, this mouse-or-controller enabled indie title fills the entire screen with gigantic mechanized enemies… The stuff of nightmares.
Intrusion 2 is an action platformer set in a sci-fi environment on a reserve planet occupied by a hostile military corporation conducting forbidden weapon research. Intrusion 2 is inspired by classic 16bit era sidescrollers and focuses on classic fast-paced action combined with modern physics and animation.
I believe I have found the only Match-3 Dual Stick Shooter on the market. I might be picking this one up, just for the novelty of it all.
In Transcripted players take control of the Nano Probe, a microscopic apparatus used to combat disease. With the aid of a skill tree that improves ship equipment, health, shields and the Nano Probe’s arsenal of upgradeable weapons, players must successfully navigate through hordes of deadly pathogens to destroy the disease’s pseudo-DNA as it twines perilously on its endless path to infection.
This incredibly fun (and also very competitive) puzzler reminds me a bit of Magical Coin Drop. It also has a wondurfully amazing trailer, so check it out!
Critter Crunch is an award winning, arcade-style puzzle game, starring the loveable Biggs. Using his long, sticky tongue to grab critters from vines above, he feeds them to each other until they burst, dropping tasty jewels for him to gobble up. Using Critter Crunch’s ‘Food Chain’ mechanic, players will eat their way through a smorgasbord of levels and gorge on a feast of modes, including Co-op and Versus multiplayer.
Oh, and barf. Rainbow barf!
Already reviewed on Levelsave.com by the very knowledgable Kosachan, this is a brain-breaking puzzle-platformer. Check out our review here!
Grab the gateway guns and explore a huge lab filled with mysterious puzzles in this classic platforming adventure. Use gateway technology to leap from one place to another, change size to explore small passages or defeat large enemies, walk on walls and ceilings to reach new areas and even travel in time to work together with past echoes of yourself.
Continent of the Ninth Seal
Yet another F2P MMO, but this one isn’t as much an RPG as it is a fantasy action game. Beautiful visuals and fast-paced gameplay mark this game as you slash your way through your friends (soon to become bitter rivals.)
Choose a character that best represents how you want to experience the game. The four base classes — Fighter, Hunter, Shaman, and Witchblade — can each upgrade into multiple advanced classes, all of which are unique in their skills, visuals, and play styles. The console-like controls, various skill combos, and RPG-based elements, make C9 a satisfying choice for all fans of action games.
Secret Files 3
This game has, uhm.. Chicks on bikes, a wedding, a dilapidated landscape. Actually, this game is and adventure title. These types of games usually strike a chord with me, but this one seems to be lacking something crucial.
Nina‘s biggest adventure yet awaits her in the franchise‘s third game. Could it be possible that everything is connected to the happenings in Tunguska? Is humankind depending on her? Can she save Max or is fate more important than her happiness? Throughout the story players will experience a cinematic hunt crossing continents, with many riddles waiting to be solved.
FTL: Faster Than Light
This space-command and simulator is very much not a graphically advanced experience. Let’s hope there is a lot of detail (and it seems like there is) to make up for the bare UI.
In FTL you experience the atmosphere of running a spaceship trying to save the galaxy. It’s a dangerous mission, with every encounter presenting a unique challenge with multiple solutions. What will you do if a heavy missile barrage shuts down your shields? Reroute all power to the engines in an attempt to escape, power up additional weapons to blow your enemy out of the sky, or take the fight to them with a boarding party? This “spaceship simulation roguelike-like” allows you to take your ship and crew on an adventure through a randomly generated galaxy filled with glory and bitter defeat.
An RTS through and through, though the game is billed as short and sweet. Does this mean that there is little replay value, or that the matches tend to be short? Stay locked to Levelsave to find out! (Hint)
War has erupted on the lonely planet of Ishtonia IV. Humans and a sentient, mechanical alien race known as the Zali – former collaborators in the mining and processing of the rare compound, Lohum – now see each other as threats to their continued existence on the planet both had so tenuously shared.
And that’s it for The Steamfeed this week, but I would like to show you a trailer or two to salivate over!
