This week is pretty light when it comes to big releases, or even anticipated indie titles on Steam. What do we have? Well, I'm really keen on White Night, a PS4/PC noir-horror game with a startlingly clean, monochrome art style. That's what I'll be checking out this week.
Cooking Mama: Bon Appetit (3DS)
What is it? Wow. They still make these? Are they any good? Should you care? Just checked, apparently they're a bit samey and not really worth bothering with.
Fly in the House (PC)
What is it? A game about how there is sometimes a fly in your house and you have to destroy the joint in an attempt to find and kill the thing. Should you care? This has got that Goat Simulator vibe about it. Looks quite polished. But also: seems a bit like a tech demo more than anything.
Gardening Mama: Forest Friends (3DS)
What is it? Wait, they have Gardening Mama games? Man I'm really out of touch with how Mama runs her business. Should you care? I'm going with no. Get Majora's Mask. It's really cool.
What is it? Take De Blob, mix it with Portal and add a dash of and game with a grapple mechanic and you have, um... Grapple! Should you care? This game looks really cool actually. I'm down for this.
Screamride (Xbox One/360)
What is it? This is a game about building rollercoasters. It's kinda like a puzzle game with engineering elements from what I can tell. Should you care? I like the concept. Don't know too much about how good or bad it is.
Shelter 2 (PC)
What is it? An open world survival game that has you playing as a Lynx trying to nurture her cubs in an unforgiving environment. Should you care? This game is gonna make me emotional. I will play and there will be tears.
What is it? A really sexy looking puzzle platformer that has you controlling two seperate alien creatures. Should you care? It's targeted quite young but it looks beautiful and quirky and glorious. Feels like it should be on consoles. Looks very well-made.
What is it? A 2D platformer rogue-like set in medieval times but you have a rocket launcher. Bravo. Should you care? This sounds just about weird enough to be worth investigating.
White Night (PS4/PC)
What is it? It's a noir-horror-adventure thing with a unique manga-esque art style. Completely black and white. Should you care? I've been keen on this since it was announced a while back. Might be the game I'm most excited about this week.
Zombie Army Trilogy (Xbox One)
What is it? It's a first-person zombie shooter thing that's apparently a lot of fun in co-op. Should you care? I'd wait for reviews.
