If you're thinking of picking up some games from this collection, but you're unsure which ones, we've rounded up a top pick of Steam PC keys that fellow gamers have been loving so far.
Shantae: Half-Genie Hero Ultimate Edition
The belly dancing half-genie Shantae returns for another jam-packed adventure, this time in full HD, in Shantae: Half-Genie Hero Ultimate Edition. You'll be tasked with toppling the masterminds behind each criminal caper as you prepare for the ultimate showdown against Shantae’s arch nemesis - the bodacious buccaneer Risky Boots!
Use Shantae’s devastating Hair-Whip Attack to send monsters flying, or Belly Dance to transform into a more powerful creature form. The new Relic System allows players to unlock new powers and customize moves for Shantae and her many forms.
When Shantae’s story ends, you’re just getting started. The Ultimate Edition includes all previously released DLC Modes which introduce new characters, levels, and bosses!
Mighty Switch Force! Collection
Switch up the fun with four games in one with the action strategy Mighty Switch Force! Collection. As cybernetic peacekeeper Officer Patricia Wagon, you'll use your platforming skills, puzzle-solving abilities, and special level-altering Siren Helmet to protect the people of Planet Land and smash enemies into the screen.
In Mighty Switch Force! and its HD remake, Mighty Switch Force! Hyper Drive Edition, you'll zap foes while “switching” blocks from the foreground to the background (and vice versa) as you track down the delinquent Hooligan Sisters in each stage.
Then, in Mighty Switch Force! 2, Officer Wagon trades in her Pellet Gun for a fire hose as she extinguishes a dangerous blaze and rescues would-be victims.
Last, but my no means least, Mighty Switch Force! Academy, you'll put the trainees through their paces in expansive HD stages with co-op and versus modes for up to four players. The future of light-hearted law enforcement is here!
Shantae and the Pirate's Curse
You folks love your belly-dancing adventurers! Rated 'Overwhelmingly Positive' on Steam, Shantae and the Pirate's Curses sees Shantae team up with the nefarious pirate Risky Boots in order to save Sequin Land from a curse, after losing her powers.
You can upgrade Shantae's hair and weapons or unlock advanced Fighter's Moves. Locate maps, return lost Heart Squids, collect rare loot, and laugh out loud at the weird, wild, and wonderfully humorous cast of characters.
An incredible high resolution artwork, unlockable Pirate-Mode, multiple endings, and an unforgettable soundtrack make this one game you won't want to miss!
If exploring a post-apocalyptic landscape is more up your street, sci-fi point & click BEAUTIFUL DESOLATION would make a fine addition to your library. You'll do everything from solve puzzles and meet new friends, to making powerful enemies, mediating conflicts and fight for your life as you unravel the secrets of the world around you.
Mark, a man out of time, searches for his lost brother Don, in a far-flung futuristic era ruled by highly advanced technologies that are both revered and reviled. Your surroundings hold echoes of a desolate past, and glimpses of a dark future that has yet to be written by your actions.
Be prepared to face many tough choices that will shape this land long after you complete your journey. Enjoy a score masterfully crafted by composer Mick Gordon, known for his work on top game series including Wolfenstein, DOOM, and Prey.
The inhabitants of this world will help and hinder you, as you make new discoveries and navigate the spectacular African-inspired landscape. Negotiate your passage with local leaders, healers, and warriors, or find yourself embroiled in a battle against nanite swarms, enormous scorpions and rocket-equipped robots.
From thriving villages to crumbling cities, petrified forests and bone-dry ocean beds, this strange new world holds a multitude of terrains to uncover, beautifully rendered in 2D isometric art.
Before Your Eyes
An emotional, award-winning tale well worth your time. Before Your Eyes is a story-rich game where you control the story - and affect its outcomes - with your real-life blinks. With this innovative technique you will fully immerse yourself in a world of memories, both joyous and heart breaking, as your whole life flashes before your eyes.
The game uses your webcam to immerse you in this story in a way you've never experienced before. You will learn to control the flow of the narrative with your actual eyes–blinking through precious memories of family, first love, and the rise of an artistic career.
But soon the Ferryman will suspect you aren't showing him everything he needs to see. So he will force you deeper into the dark recesses of your most repressed memories, ultimately revealing a heart breaking truth.
By combining its innovative blink interaction mechanic with a charming world and a fully voice-acted story, this 'Overwhelmingly Positive' rated title is a deeply emotional and relatable journey - one about the impossible expectations we place on ourselves and the regrets we carry with us.
