The Greenlight Groove: ‘Schein’, ‘Stormbringer’ and More


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!

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).


Stormbringer is side-view roguelike shooter game.


WE ARE DOOMED (@caffeinemonster)
WE ARE DOOMED is a shoot-em-up set in a vibrant world of neon colours, glitching geometry, and the odd blocky sprite. The player is armed with an overpowered laserbeam super weapon to zap baddies that are multiplying at an alarming rate.

Soulcaster: Part I & II

Soulcaster: Part I & II (@MagicalTimeBean)
Journey into a forgotten land and reawaken the souls of three immortal guardians: Shaedu, the archer; Bloodfire, the alchemist; and Aeox, the warrior. Summon them at tactical locations to fend off and destroy the hordes of relentless foes you will face. Picking the who to summon, and where, is crucial: Shaedu can fire arrows across rivers, but not through walls. Bloodfire’s firebombs won’t be stopped by walls, but because of their slowness, fast-moving enemies will easily slip past them. Aeox does a great job holding the line at choke points–but beware, he goes down quickly if surrounded.

Alcarys Complex

Alcarys Complex
Corvallis Unruh is a young pacifist from a small coastal town. He spends his days working for the local pharmaceutical distributor and taking his daily pain medication, even though he’s not sure he’s actually in pain. One night, his world is upended when a huge creature tears his family’s house apart, sending him on an adventure that he’s pretty sure he doesn’t want to be on with a companion who he’s pretty sure doesn’t want him there.
