SOMA is a sci-fi horror game from Frictional Games, the studio that brought you Amnesia: The Dark Descent. This time, they have eschewed the Lovecraftian setting for a modern spin on Jules Verne’s classic novel Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea. Players act as Simon, who has no idea how he came to be on the PATHOS-2, an underwater facility that has clearly fallen into disrepair. With the guidance of A.I. Catherine, players must find a way out of the facility before being killed off by Proxy’s, monsters that were once human. Just like in Amnesia, there is no way to fight back, so you must engage in a deadly game of cat and mouse as you try to escape.

Admin/Community quote:

“What really got me about SOMA was the ending of the trailer where it showed the guys' brain and the "THEREFORE I AM" quote. The exploration and horrors of the human mind and technology is fascinating and surreal, just imagine how scary it is to become a robot or an AI. How are you completely yourself if you don't have your natural body? And even worse, your memory and personality could be wiped to be used as the template for an AI. You're not even yourself at that point anymore, you were reborn.” - Cridone

From Vlambeer, the developers of hits such as Ridiculous Fishing and Luftrausers, comes Nuclear Throne, an action roguelike about mutants fighting for the titular throne in a post-apocalyptic world. The ability to mutate new limbs on the fly, coupled with the abundant array of powerful weaponry available to the player should make for some memorable action sequences as you fight to become the ruler of the Wasteland.

Admin/Community quote:

“Nuclear Throne has always been a fun, addicting game to play, but it's just as exciting to see it getting polished up for an official release. The game seems more and more refined with each update, and while I'll miss the weekly changes, Nuclear Throne exiting early access will be super important.” - Psychicken17

It seems like you can’t visit the Steam Store without stumbling across a new survival game these days. Several come and go, but none of them have featured the era of the dinosaurs - until now. Gather items, craft weapons, kill your prey, tame your mounts, and build your base, all while avoiding becoming dinner yourself. While learning to survive is key, discovering the world around you and all the creatures contained within is the real draw here, and with the recent additions of the Swamp and Snow biomes, the island is bigger than ever. Oh, and did we mention dragons?

Admin/Community quote:

“Dinosaurs! Tame them, ride them, eat them, where else can you do that? The ability to play on a private server with people you know and not having to worry about other players stealing your stuff is definitely a bonus! Love the mods players create, can’t wait to see more of them. ” - Pinkachu
