The Greenlight Groove: Haunt the House: Terrortown, Hyphen and More

Greenlight

It’s a fact that many Steam users don’t check or even notice most Greenlight additions. There are simply too many, making it rather time consuming. Hoping to alleviate this problem somewhat, I bring you The Greenlight Groove, featuring my recommendations from the past week!

Seeing how Valve recently announced that they wanted Greenlight to “go away”, the end of this article series – along with Stuck In Greenlight Limbo – may soon be upon us. Here’s to hoping whatever replacement they have planned, if anything, will have a significantly better launch than Greenlight did. I mean, at this point it’s somewhat reliable and useful, but man… that was definitely not the case during its early days.

Keep in mind that those listed below are by no means the only new arrivals, simply those I gave my ‘yes’ vote. With that in mind, would you kindly help make sure none end up as a potential Stuck In Greenlight Limbo candidate, by voting? Oh and do provide their creators with feedback. I’m sure they’ll appreciate anything, as long as it’s expressed properly (please, be nice).

Ilamentia

Ilamentia
The goal is simple, activate all souls and make it to the exit, but every room revolves around wildly differing mechanics. You may be tasked with manipulating physical structures, deal with waves of phasms or briskly bound through the aether. The puzzle is to deduce the limits of the room’s mechanics which evolve as you progress. Some rooms focus on brain-melting logic, others rely on sharp reactions, but many more will test the limits of every facet of your cognitive faculties.

Rain World

Rain World
Rain World is a challenging survival platformer set in an abandoned industrial environment scourged by a shattered eco-system. Bone-crushing intense rain pounds the surface regularly, making life as we know it almost impossible. The creatures in this world hibernate most of the time, but in the few brief dry periods they go out searching for food.

CATLATERAL DAMAGE

CATLATERAL DAMAGE
Catlateral Damage is a first-person destructive cat simulator where your goal is to knock as many of your owner’s possessions onto the ground as possible. It was originally created for the August 2013 7DFPS challenge and is currently in alpha. You’re a cat. You break stuff. Simple as that.

Haunt the House: Terrortown

Haunt the House: Terrortown
Leave the dusty halls of an abandoned clock tower to haunt your way through a town in the dead of night! Possess objects with your ghostly soul, to scare people away from a museum, a hospital, a theatre and a cruise ship. Will you be able to scare everyone out and reclaim what has been lost, before the night is over?

Detective Grimoire

Detective Grimoire
Detective Grimoire has been called to investigate a murder. The owner of a small tourist attraction, found deep within the heart of the marshes, seemingly killed by the very mythical creature his attraction is based around… Explore the surrounding area, inspect the scene of the crime, grill the suspects, solve puzzles, search for clues and uncover the secret of the swamp!

Infectonator : Survivors

Infectonator : Survivors
“Infectonator : Survivors” is a Randomized Permadeath Survival Simulator that combines RTS, Tower Defense, Roguelike, and Management-Simulation gameplay. The goal is to lead a group of survivors in a struggle to stay alive and find rescue in a zombie apocalyptic world. You must scavenge resources, build defenses, and find a way to survive in a game where death is permanent and levels are randomly generated.

Hyphen

Hyphen
Navigate a rotating stick through intricate and fiendish neon mazes while trying to avoid the walls, obstacles and various traps throughout. Although it sounds extremely simple, it’s fun and infuriatingly challenging at the same time. Coupled with an awesome soundtrack and gorgeous glowing visuals this game will blow your mind in more ways than one.
