Wondering which games to select for yourself? Here are some of the top picks from the October collection!
Streets of Rogue
In rogue-lite Streets of Rogue, it's all about player choice, freedom, and anarchic fun. The game takes inspiration from fast-paced top-down rogue-lites like Binding of Isaac and Nuclear Throne, and adds free-form, experimentation-driven, emergent gameplay elements of RPGs like Deus Ex.
Rather than taking place in a dungeon, the game is set in a functioning, procedurally generated city, where complex AI informs denizens from all walks of life, who are just trying to get by in their daily activities.
In order to progress, the player will need to accomplish specific mission goals in any way they see fit through use of their special character traits, items, and the environment. Lead a gang, free slaves, drink beer, gib ghosts, become a vampire, shrink people and stomp on them - it's probably one of the most insanely varied games ever made.
Space Hulk: Deathwing - Enhanced Edition
Space Hulk: Deathwing - Enhanced Edition is an FPS based on Games Workshop’s cult classic board game set in Warhammer 40,000 universe. Expanding upon the original game, and featuring a host of new content, new features and a richer multiplayer mode, the Enhanced Edition is the ultimate Space Hulk: Deathwing experience.
Play as a Terminator of the Deathwing - the feared 1st Company comprised of the elite of the secretive Space Marine Chapter, the Dark Angels - and engage in a desperate battle against Genestealers, within the claustrophobic confines of a Space Hulk. Grow stronger, gaining skills, new abilities, and powerful equipment as you earn experience across perilous missions.
The Enhanced Edition brings a host of fresh features to enjoy in both solo and multiplayer: a new class, an expanded arsenal, deadly new enemies, a deep online customisation system, and a new Special Missions mode bringing infinite replayability with randomly-generated missions for every game chapter.
In Indie adventure Liberated, you'll unravel a cyberpunk story paying homage to modern and cult pop-culture inspired by Black Mirror, Mr. Robot, The Matrix, and even Fight Club. Enter the bleak streets of a dystopian near-future. Here, human rights crumble as governments and megacorps join forces to make you their pawn. THEY want to trace your every move. THEY want to shape the way you think. Will you obey? Or will you FIGHT?
Jump, sneak, solve puzzles, and keep your 9mm ready. Liberated is a white-knuckle action-adventure game presented within a graphic novel. The comic book story intertwines with a pure side-scrolling shooter. Kill them first, ask questions later.
Get ready for a visual tour de force. Witness gorgeously hand-drawn panels reminiscent of Frank Miller’s and Will Eisner’s graphic novels. Liberated combines the legendary comic book styles with the aesthetic influences of ‘40s and ‘50s noir cinema. Let the interplay of light and shadow leave you breathless.
Immerse yourself in a breath-taking piano-centric soundtrack and fight your way through hordes of bosses, monsters, and blood thirsty grown-ups with your trusty baseball bat in action-adventure RPG Neversong. Upon waking from a coma, Peet's girlfriend is nowhere to be found.
Thomas Brush, creator of Pinstripe, invites you to investigate the screams coming from the heart of Blackfork Asylum, the increasingly violent behavior of the grown-ups, and the strange truth about Peet's past in this hauntingly dreamlike fable. Discover what's lurking beyond the doorbell in this strange tale that started almost a decade ago.
Join your quirky child-hood pals and trusty pet bird on an adventure to discover the truth about your recent coma.
Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf Special Edition
The Sons of Fenris they are... Follow one of the First Founding Space Marines into battle with the Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf Special Edition - featuring the Steam PC base game and four DLC keys.
In this collection, you'll experience a unique combination of turn-based strategy, RPG, and collectible card gameplay with new modes, Heroes, and much more.
Take command of a Space Wolves squad led by Valgard Twice Slain. Your Great Company's Strike Cruiser fell into a trap set by Chaos Space Marines of the Word Bearers legion - causing you to make a forced landing on Kanak, a volcano-wracked feral world, inhabited by tribes of ruthless barbarians. Not only must you survive, but you must emerge victorious.
Experience an epic campaign with branching storylines, spanning hostile environments on a distant planet, and challenge your Brothers in multiplayer and earn ultimate rewards by proving your leadership.
Secret Government is a grand strategy game about a secret society - remaining unseen, they have been ruling mankind for hundreds of years. Your role will be not to just lead any particular country or region, but the Brotherhood: a centuries-old organization that works in the shadows and manipulates the entire world.
Pull the strings of fate as you influence the present and future on a global scale, reconstructing the whole world to your liking. Strategically manage your agents running errands in different countries and infiltrating government institutions to strip countries of their resources and seize control over decision-makers.
Your choices will change the internal and foreign policies of countries. A desire for power and wealth is not the only thing that drives the Brotherhood - it strives for a complete rebuilding of the world.
Beginning in the 17th century, you start making your own history, where in each mission of the game you will interfere in the main conflict of a certain period.
You need to act slowly and carefully not to raise the awareness of your clout in the country. You will otherwise be exposed and lose the level of influence already gained in this very country.
There will be plenty of diplomatic, economic and military actions at your disposal. Pay close attention to the domestic politics of each country. If the ruling party’s ideology is very different from the views of various classes and estates, if tax levels are too high and public order too low, then expect a revolution. Or maybe this is what you seek?
You cannot impose your will on the rulers - your manipulations in the game are indirect. You do not have the power to order a monarch to declare war on a neighboring country, but you can plant your agents in the right places, provoke deterioration in relations by indirect actions, arrange a border incident and bring the countries to a military conflict.
