Complementing my 5 new Steam releases collection from the week of May 12, 2014, this serves as a quick highlight of titles you may want to check out through Steam's Early Access. These games don't appear on the New Releases tab, so they can definitely use the boost. To mix things up, I'm showing off the dev's videos this time. Let me know if you prefer commentary/less Let's Plays, instead.
Rebuild: Gangs of Deadsville by Sarah Northway & Friends (Windows, Mac; $14.99)
"Rebuild a ruined city in this post-apocalyptic mix of strategy and simulation. Manage survivors, scavenge for food and supplies, deal with rival gangs, illness, interpersonal strife and zombie attacks."
Cosmic DJ by Gl33k (Windows, Mac; $5.99)
"Cosmic DJ is a quick, 'pick-up and play' musical experience about the joy of music creation for budding intergalactic musicians of all skill levels. Set among the stars, you will strive to become the legendary Cosmic DJ through six musical adventures as you're tasked with repairing the all-important "Jamtennas" and bring harmony back to the galaxy."
Heavy Bullets by Terri Vellmann (Windows, Mac, Linux; $9.99)
"Heavy Bullets is a randomized FPS dungeon crawler where players make their way through a colorful maze, while protecting themselves from aggressive creatures and malfunctioning security devices. The goal lies at the end of the 8th level, where they must reset the security mainframe to restore order and reap the rewards." [Also on Humble Store, DRM-Free]
Cult of the Wind by North of Earth (Windows; $14.99)
"Cult of the Wind is a game about people who pretend to be airplanes."
I Shall Remain by Scorpius Games (Windows; $14.99)
"I Shall Remain is an Action Survival Role Playing game. Situated in an alternate history at the end of the Second World War, when Nazis managed to release a deadly virus over US territory, the game tells the story of two brothers and their intricate relation with the apocalyptic world rising in the leftovers of the Z0M81 Pandemic ravage."
