442053511_preview_new_5

Today’s Greenlight spotlight is on Formula Fusion, an action racing game that combines the best from Wipeout and F Zero in order to create a game that reinvents the arcade racing genre. Being a huge fan of F Zero, I was excited to see this game pop up on Greenlight. Racing through futuristic environments at ridiculous speeds is something that ...

Steam Greenlight Spotlight: Okhlos

screen1

Today’s Greenlight spotlight is on Okhlos, a unique take on the action-roguelike genre. In Okhlos, you take control of an angry mob of ancient Greek citizens. First of all, it is most likely pretty obvious as to why this game was chosen for the spotlight. Controlling an entire angry mob? Come on, that sounds like one of the most intense ...

“Create a custom space fleet, lead it into battle and fight for control of the galaxy!” This is the sentence that I first read about Starfall Tactics, and it immediately led to me wanting to know more about the game.

Steam Greenlight Spotlight: Sentinels

download (1)

Today’s standout on Greenlight is Sentinels. Sentinels is a combination of elements of tower defense and the skills involved in first-person shooters. While games such as Toy Soldiers have taken similar mechanics and implemented them successfully in the past, it is still nice to see another game trying to put a spin on the tower defense genre. For me, tower ...

Steam Greenlight Spotlight: Viridi

download

Today’s Greenlight spotlight is on a rather unorthodox game. Rather than being a game in a traditional sense, Viridi is more of a simulation and a tool to help unwind from a long and difficult day. It is the sort of game that you pick up when you’re having your morning tea on a Sunday morning. A game that you ...

  City-building games were a staple of my youth. From games like Emperor: Rise of the Middle Kingdom to Zeus to Caesar 3, I spent hundreds of hours building cities and watching them fail during my youth. The city-builders of today have unfortunately not had that same effect on me, and left me with no desire to revisit them once ...

Today’s standout on Greenlight is Guardians of the Forest, a multiplayer brawler that features cute animals that die in various violent ways. It seems that the theme of Greenlight games the past few days has been multiplayer arena/brawler games, and as a frequent game night attendee, I could not be happier to have a wider variety of games to play ...

ss_e5a4d9934aa10b21e12d03e6117d52f120e0ec65.600x338

With the disappointment of Aliens: Colonial Marines, and the mixed reactions to Alien: Isolation, fans of the Alien franchise, or just alien horror in general, have had a rough time getting a decent game. While Colonial Marines was just an absolute disaster, Isolation bored many people with its repetitive mechanics and stretched-out storyline. An alien horror game needs tension and ...

My group of friends and I are always looking for some new party games to play, so I always jump at the opportunity to add a new game to our collection. While games like Gang Beasts and Towerfall: Ascension are staples in our local gaming ...

Steam Greenlight Spotlight: Blues and Bullets

bluesandbullets_main

Today’s Greenlight spotlight is on Blues and Bullets, a story-based detective game. First off, I’d like to freely admit that I am a sucker for a good detective mystery. I love games like the Tex Murphy series and L.A. Noire, and it’s really great to see something of the like coming out of Greenlight. My interest in Blues and Bullets ...
