In an average day, about a dozen new games are released on Steam. And while we think it’s a good thing, it can be understandably difficult to follow. Potentially exciting gems are sure to be lost in the deluge of new things to play unless you come out every game that is released on Steam. So that’s exactly what we did. If nothing attracts you this week, we’ve picked it up best games for pc you can play it now and a running list of it 2021 Games launching this year.
Release: 16 June 16th
Developer: Sneaky Yak Studio
Launch price: $ 19.99 | £ 15.59 | AU $ 28.76
This fantastic tycoon game has been in Prime Access for several years, but as of last week it was officially at 1.0. That’s good news, because Spellcaster University is exactly the game you’re looking for, if you’ve ever wanted to run your own Hogwarts (or indeed, any other non-franchised magic university). You are the director of Spellcaster, and in this role you will have to run your university, recruit professors, and decide what kind of magic you would like to specialize in. Maybe necromancy, or demonology, to name just two examples listed on the game’s Steam page? It sounds fun, and the “very positive” rating of the game is promising.
Minute of Island
Release: June 14th
Developer: Studio Fizbin
Launch price: $ 20 | 20 £ | AU $ 28.95
It’s a puzzle platform, but take a look at that art style and you’ll see why it stands out. Located on an archipelago that once inhabited giants, he plays as Mo, who has enriched hopes of using it to bring the technology of these giants to life. Good idea or bad? Judging by the trailer there are occasions when shit touches the fan, but the clever illustrations of comics place Minute of Islands in a more contemplative than threatening place.
Release: June 19th
Launch price: $ 15 | £ 11.39. | AU $ 21.50
Launched in Early Access last week, World End Diner has a very strong Stardew Valley breath on purpose, with its world-class pixel art top-down. But there’s a nice twist here: You run a farm, you’re cooking on the farm, but as the name suggests you’re also managing a dinner. Why the hell a dinner? Foolish question: To feed all animals quite pixelated, of course! (and robots, why not). The Ready Access period will last around a year, during which they will add heaps of content, including a more expansive world, more crafts, more animals (and robots), and even more.
Release: June 18
Developer: Trashy Rascal Studios
Launch price: $ 5.94 | £ 4.41 | AU $ 8.45
There are many modern indies that take the style of old Game Boy Games, and Lasagna Boy is just the latest. That said, it seems to be one of the most interesting: While the color palette is accurate, there’s a much easier on-the-eye approach to the animations here, and Trashy Rascal Studios have been trying to make a horror game rather than a mascot. platformer. You’ll be intriguing and platform in Lasagna Boy, but crucially, don’t be fooled by his slightly sympathetic appearances: expect scares and beheadings.
Release: 16 June 16th
12 $ 12 | £ 9.11 | AU $ 17.20
Well, I don’t know if he needs a better sales pitch than “hardcore platformer with an onion-headed kid,” but if for some reason you do, read on. I don’t think Garlic is going to rewrite the history of the games but his art style is definitely something to write about at home: it looks like Undertale, if Undertale had the kind of smooth-as-devils animation that a contraction-oriented platformer support required. This is inspired by Celeste, Meat Boy and Cat Robot, but even if you’ve had a bunch of games in the mold, Garlic has an art style that’s worth investigating.
