Five New Steam Games You Probably Missed (December 6, 2021)


Every day, around a dozen new games are released on Steam. And while we think it’s a good thing, it can be understandably difficult to keep up. Potentially exciting gems will certainly be lost in the deluge of new things to play, unless you sort through all the games released on Steam. So that’s exactly what we did. If nothing appeals to you this week, we’ve rounded up the best PC games you can play right now and a list of the 2021 games that will launch this year.

WorldBox

Steam‌ page‌
Release: December 3
Developer: ‌ Maxim Karpenko
Launch Price: ‌ $ 20 ‌ | ‌ ‌ £ 15.49 | ‌ ‌‌ AU $ 28.95

Launched in Early Access last week, WorldBox is a game of god that tries to put as much destructive power into your hands as possible. You’ll be ruling a world with four races, each capable of forming kingdoms and making war on others, and you might find it fun to just sit back and watch how it all unfolds. Or, you can trigger a zombie apocalypse, send an acid raid, usher in a UFO visit, or better yet, hit a giant crab in there and see what happens. It’s basically a huge simulator to be an asshole; Joseph dug it out when he played a first version in August. As for this Early Access release, it’s the culmination of years of work and there’s a lot to be done, although developer Maxim Karpenko expects two more years of development as new features like religions are released. added.

Steam‌ page‌
Release: December 3
Developer: ‌ HeartBeat Plus
Introductory Price: ‌ ‌ $ 7.19 | ‌ ‌ £ 5.21 ‌ | ‌ ‌ AU $ 10.35

Drawing inspiration from traditional Chinese folklore, Paper Bride is a fascinating horror game about a bride who literally turns into paper. The groom, naturally upset about this, wants to understand why this happened and ideally reverse it, only he finds that everything else related to the impending wedding has also become paper: the food, the decorations. Paper Bride is a puzzle-oriented horror game with a point-and-click interface, so don’t expect terrifying chases or rambling fights. Expect a rich, eerie atmosphere and unique storytelling.

Mech

Steam‌ page‌
Release: December 3
Developer: Whalenought Studios
Introductory Price: ‌ ‌ $ 22.49 | ‌ ‌18 £ ‌ | ‌ ‌ AU $ 32.35

Here’s a turn-based tactical RPG with a unique setting and art style. It’s ostensibly “cyberpunk”, but more to the point, it takes place in an “out of the world grindhouse jungle colony”. As far as I know, this is a parameter not yet addressed by a video game. As you roam this literal urban jungle in search of an escape, you’ll need to team up with or wage war against mercenaries and gangs, and you’ll need to be extra careful when you do, because your decisions matter here: Whalenought Studios calls it an immersive simulation. Some gamers are reporting issues from launch week, but once these are sorted out, it looks like a treat for serious RPG enthusiasts.

High rise mogul

Steam‌ page‌
Release: ‌ ‌ December 3
Developer: Olli Arkko
Introductory Price: ‌ ‌ $ 9 | ‌ ‌ £ 6.74 | ‌ ‌ AU $ 13.05

Highrise Mogul looks like a modern take on SimTower: your job is to build a perfect high rise building filled with offices, apartments, maintenance staff and places to relax. But it wouldn’t be a tycoon’s game if it was just about building nice things, so you’ll also have to manage the power grid, run PR campaigns to build your skyscraper, and make sure the tenants follow the rules. The Steam page promises that, if you want to, you can be the “most ruthless micromanagement owner,” which sounds like an absolute blast.

Leenie boog

Steam‌ page‌
Release: December 3
Developer: ‌ Alexander Bazhenov
Introductory Price: ‌ ‌ $ 4.49 | ‌ ‌ £ 3.59 | ‌ AU $ 6.75

This spooky survival horror game apparently takes place during a “Thousand Years’ War” but, more specifically, it includes an absolutely gruesome antagonist who is present even in the game. trailer will give me nightmares. It’s a first-person affair and it’s all about stealth and escape, so don’t expect to cathartically murder the horrific Leenie Boog (that’s the name of the weird dog, you didn’t know). There’s a slight whiff of Five Nights at Freddy’s here, but only because the stalker looks like a murderous living toy.
