On average, about a dozen new games are released on Steam. And while we think that’s a good thing, it can be hard to keep up. The potentially interesting gems are sure to get lost in a deluge of new things to play unless you sort through every game released on Steam. This is exactly what we did. If nothing catches your eye this week, we’ve brought you together The best computer games You can play now and playlist 2021 games Which is launched this year.
Rain on your parade
Release: April 16th
Developer: unbound creations
Launch price: $ 13.49 | £ 10.79 | AU $ 19.35
Lots of games want you to feel like a hero, so it’s a good idea to have a game that lets you immerse yourself in your fantasies of being unnecessarily mean. Rain On Your Parade is like the ultimate simulator of a wacky universe, because in it you play as a rain cloud, and it is your job to destroy people’s days (even the days of dinosaurs) by raining them down. Across 40 levels, you’ll skillfully destroy the best plans for humans, across “weddings, cities, farms, military bases, parking lots and more.” If you ever want to be a bad cloud, this one is for you.
Release: April 16
Developer: Christophe Fry
Launch price: $ 5.39 | £ 4.31 | AU $ 7.65
Before accusing The Space Between of sarcastically jumping on the retro PSX wagon, he noticed its release for the first time On Itch.io Back in 2019. This new Steam release is worth noting because it is truly an exciting and bizarre narrative adventure game that you can complete in less than an hour. The description reads, “Architect Martin Melanson, in charge of building a theater, meets a woman named Clara outside his apartment complex at night.” “They are drawn to each other, they visit the theater construction site. As they explore the unfinished theater, surrounded by scaffolding and getting lost in ideas, reality slowly fades away, as the curtain opens and a dark play about closeness and separation begins.”
Release: April 15
Developer: Voxel Tycoon
Launch price: $ 25 | £ 19.49 | AU $ 35.95
Voxel Tycoon launched in its Early Access program last week, and is an ambitious experiment in transportation and logistics management set on an endless, procedurally generated map. Under development for “a few years”, the current version is a completely playable transport tycoon game, mod support is already available, although it will have a lot of other features in the future such as multiplayer vehicles, weather, sea and air – and most importantly – railroad conversion . If you are in OpenTTD Or anything else in that style, Voxel Tycoon feels like a sure bet.
Distant Emily <3
Release: April 17
Developer: Kyle Sealy
Launch price: $ 9.99 | £ 7.20 | AU $ 14.50
The third part of this series follows the format of previous versions, that is, it is a visual novel set in social media user interfaces. This guy goes back to the Halcyon days of Facebook, when people were still updating status updates from third-person perspective and the racist uncles still didn’t have smartphones. As a result, Emily is Away <3 looks a lot more complicated than the first two games. It's already rated "very positive" on Steam, so if you like the other two games or are interested in finding out what caused the hype, it looks like Kyle Seeley pulled it off with this one.
Release: April 15
Developer: Bouncyrock Entertainment
$ 25 | 19.49 GBP | AU USD $ 35.95
With a mitigating epidemic putting on in-person table sessions, TaleSpire arrives just in time. It’s basically a digital backgammon game builder who leans heavily into handcrafted patterns for a real-world adventure. Better yet, as a GM, you can create sprawling games in advance, or just improvise on the fly. During Early Access, the game (or gadget) is already fully functional, with more features planned to be added over the next 12 months.
These games were released from April 12-19, 2021. Some online stores give us a small discount if you buy something through one of our links. Read Affiliation Policy for further information.
