A Paladin’s Journey Through Steam: 5/29/2015. Not How I Hoped To End May.

Despite all the titles I looked at, there wasn’t all that much I wanted to feature today.

After Tuesday’s 60+ games, I dealt with Friday’s 50 games. I don’t get paid enough to do this. 😉

This post is part of a series where I feature the most interesting new releases on Valve’s Steam store. With my first impressions commentary to go along with each. Learn more about this series at this blog post.

Feature: Homesick

FPS Puzzle Exploration Game for Windows Only.

For whatever reason, exploring abandoned buildings appeals to me. It’s what got me to play The Vanishing of Ethan Carter. It’s an odd thing, looking through old buildings and exploring them. I don’t get to do it too often, even in “real life”. Maybe it’s seeing the past preserved in a moment of time. Maybe it’s drinking the atmosphere of old ghosts, I don’t know. This is a part of me that weirds me out in some ways and I won’t deny, it’s what is making me feature this game. It may be a bad but I guess one lucky dev won’t mind.

Mixed-Feature: Armed with Wings: Rearmed

Early Access 2D Platformer for Windows only

To be quite honest, I’m not 100% sure why I’m featuring this title. I think it’s just that it doesn’t feel like another generic platformer. It looks like they guys started out on New Grounds and have started getting serious about game development. So, maybe this is my way of hopefully helping them. It’s got some wonky looking mechanics with the bird shown off in the trailer but it’s stylish.

Side Note: Pixel Dungeon

The critically acclaimed Pixel Dungeon has ported from mobile to PC now. I’ve tried it out now and again and just didn’t find it all that interesting.

Thanks for reading!
