Craftopia

Craftopia is the brand new multiplayer survival action game made in Japan. We combined many features we find enjoyable, such as hunting, farming, hack-and-slash, building, automation to develop this game.



Little Town Hero

The story is set in an isolated village on the edge of the world. The only gate leading outside is heavily guarded by a castle, and the villagers are not allowed to leave. Most of the villagers don't give it a thought, and happily go on with their everyday lives. However, the protagonist is a little different from the others - he wants to see the world outside. One day, a "Monster" appears in the village, shocking everyone because until then, no one knew such creatures existed. The protagonist is able to fight it using a mysterious Red stone he found in the coalmines. In the course of his defense of the village, he gradually unravels secrets of how the stones and the monsters came to be…
 
Unlike most RPGs, there is no need to fight weak monsters repeatedly to level grind in "Little Town Hero". Instead, you will need to have a good strategy to fight each boss monster one on one. Will the protagonist live the adventure he craves and escape the humdrum village life?



Supraland Crash

A new Supraland adventure full of exploration, puzzles and surprises... and way less combat. Crash is a new full fledged Supraland campaign that you select separately in the main menu of the game. It is not necessary to have finished the base game, but we highly recommend it.



Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2

Koji Igarashi and Inti Creates are back with more retro sword-and-whip action!

Curse of the Moon 2 brings classic 2D action and a dark, 8-bit aesthetic together with modern playability. The multiple-scenario structure of the previous title returns with an epic new story supervised by IGA (Koji Igarashi) himself.

Players take control of Zangetsu, a swordsman from the far east who bears a deep grudge against demonkind and the alchemists who summoned them. Zangetsu must battle his way to the demonic stronghold, but he doesn't have to do it alone! Zangetsu can ally himself with a brand new cast of characters he meets along the way and add them to the playable roster.

Three brand-new playable characters appear in Curse of the Moon 2, including the exorcist Dominique. All characters from the original Curse of the Moon game are playable, too! Each new character adds a variety of gameplay options, abilities, and ways to complete the games' many stages.

Players can also create demon hunting duos in 2-player local co-op, available for the first time in the series! Work together with a friend, mix and match the strengths of two different characters, and conquer stages in tons of new and exciting ways.



F1 2020

F1 2020 is the most comprehensive F1 game yet, putting players firmly in the driving seat as they race against the best drivers in the world. For the first time, players can create their own F1 team by creating a driver, then choosing a sponsor, an engine supplier, hiring a teammate and competing as the 11th team on the grid. Build facilities, develop the team over time and drive to the top.



DEATH STRANDING

From legendary game creator Hideo Kojima comes an all-new, genre-defying experience.

Sam Bridges must brave a world utterly transformed by the Death Stranding. Carrying the disconnected remnants of our future in his hands, he embarks on a journey to reconnect the shattered world one step at a time.

For each challenge offered in the World of Contraptions levels, you can count on a gigantic collection of blocks with different types of functionality. Structural blocks to define the shape of your contraption, wheels for movement, motors to give life to your creation, in addition to several other auxiliary blocks that can be useful to overcome different types of obstacles.



Drake Hollow

Welcome to The Hollow, a blighted and dying place, and home to the Drakes.

Drakes are the vegetable folk native to these parts, and they need your help. They’re hungry, thirsty, and need a place to sleep. They can literally die of boredom. It’s on you to save them. Build gardens to provide them with food, wells for water, and yoga balls and puppet shows to keep them entertained. Even treadmills and solar panels to generate power for Tesla coils and electric fences, as you will quickly see they need some protecting...

The Drakes aren’t the only residents of The Hollow - The Feral have overrun the land, looking to shred anything happy or good. Battle them one-on-one with a wide array of weapons ranging from tennis rackets to nail guns, bring your friends to lend a hand, and build your defenses so you can take them out without lifting a finger.

Travel from region to region, season to season, taking the Drakes and their village with you. Each region is over a square mile of territory to explore, dynamically generated and populated with each passing season.

You must balance your time carefully. What supplies are most crucial at any given moment? What does your village need? Metal from the supply caches to build your defenses, or crystals from the blighted regions to grow your Drakes? Prove that you’ve got what it takes to help the Drakes and take back The Hollow.

Dying Light - Hellraid

No one knows where the strange arcade machine came from. One day the residents of the Tower just found it in the basement after an odd power outage. They took it upstairs unaware that their find is a gateway to another realm. Shake up your Dying Light experience by using this eerie device to access a completely new game mode based on Techland’s currently-on-hold first-person fantasy slasher Hellraid.

Step into a portal to leave the familiar streets of Harran behind and emerge in an otherworldly stronghold overrun by servants of Hell. Slay brand-new demonic enemies with medieval swords, axes, and hammers as you venture through stone corridors and dimly lit chambers.

Prove your skills in intense, rewarding runs through the demon-infested dungeon. Pick up bounties for additional prizes as you revisit the fortress. Improve your Hellraid rank to access new weapons you can also wield outside of the infernal realm.

Take your chances alone or gather a party of up to 4 people and be certain Hell’s minions will always be ready for you. Prepare to face unholy forces matching your numbers and strength for a formidable challenge.

June was amazing. A lot of great games dumped on steam right b4 the sale. Some of them will be really good winter sale purchases 😉

July should be really good too with DS, Horizon and the Xbox event.



Only bought 4 things, that is a streak for the last few years.
I only bought 6 so far. There is another couple games I wanna pick up but I am waiting to see what is in the monthly first.

This is a really good sale imo. The animated backgrounds are great too.

As a PS4 owner, I would like to say the following:

Horizon Zero Dawn is amazing and I love it and its DLC. It fucking rules.

Bloodborne is a hateful thing that I can't bring myself to play anymore of because I got it for free.

I shall defend myself in the ban thread created due to this post. WITH FUCKING ROBOT ARROWS.

Pretty cool Dev build version of Ostranauts:

With the Game creator explaining everything while playing and the differences of the game compared to what was shown to people from the steam game festival, looks a lot better than what was shonw (I played the demo a couple of times)

Talk about C&C Remastered being hard!

I spent almost an hour trying to finish GDI mission.... I want to say 7 (the one after the commando).
It immediately reminded me of an issue that was kept in Tiberian Sun. It takes too long to get an economy going and units are expensive and die quickly.

I was constantly out of cash, built up a few units, took them to the NOD base, tried to take something out, was swarmed by troopers. Killed said troopers but lost all my units - new troopers immediately spill out of the Hand of NOD.

A total stalemate for almost an hour since the computer didn't do much.
