There are a lot of indie horror games looking to take advantage of the Internet-born Slenderman’s recent surge in popularity, and in a way, The Legend is among them. Only this horror game doesn’t have anything to do with Slenderman, instead it follows a new terrifying creature, which its developer has smartly kept shrouded in mystery. It’s also powered by the same engine the Crysis series uses, which means it’s gorgeous.
Today, Valve announced another batch of indie games that have gotten the green light for distribution on Steam. The Legend wasn’t the only one — check out the full list after the break.
Bleed: “Bleed is an action-platformer focused on stylish, acrobatic dodging and fluid, challenging gameplay. Wryn wants to be the ultimate videogame hero, but the Greatest Heroes of All Time have already been chosen.”
Game Dev Tycoon: “Game Dev Tycoon Start your own game development company and replay the history of gaming in this business simulation game. Start your business in a garage in the 80s.”
Legends of Eisenwald: “A unique mix of RPG and strategy set in a realistic medieval world, Legends of Eisenwald combines dynamic campaigns with fast-paced, yet strategic, turn-based combat.”
Riot: “As the economical crisis advances, the discontent of an entire population cannot help but outburst in Riots , where the sounds of many voices get heard at once.”
Stardew Valley: “Stardew Valley is an open-ended country-life RPG with support for up to 4-player co-op! It’s up to you to choose your path…”
Look out for these games (and more) as they launch on Steam over the coming months.
