6 Steam Indies on sale this week (Week 23 2020)
One week left until the Games Festival: Summer Edition. Three weeks until half of the year is over. But there are still plenty of other games on sale to talk about. There are last week’s sales with a couple still on. But as always this list isn’t about those, it’s about 6 Steam Indies on sale this week.
As always we’re going to kick off our list of 6 Steam Indies with the first game on the list. And this week it is Orbital Racer developed by
Paweł Dywelski and published by Movie Games. As the name might imply this is a space racing game. However, with a few twists. The first one being the two game modes on offer. There is a regular action racing mode for high-octane exciting racing. But that’s not all, the second mode is a more realistic simulation mode. In the simulation mode, you’ll be at the whims of gravity, and maneuvering your ship becomes a massive challenge. Essentially you’ll need to use the power of orbits to race, hence the title of the game. Sadly there is no multiplayer mode which is strange for a racing game. But the challenge in single-player makes up for it.
At 90% off until June 9th, it’s best to set things to race mode so you can get in quick.
Far Beyond: A Space Odyssey VR
Following up the first game on the list we have the second game on the list. This week’s second of the 6 Steam Indies is Far Beyond: A Space Odyssey VR. Developed by Mains Digitales Interactive and published by The Small Game Company. As you might expect from the title this game is a VR game and as such you will need a VR setup to play it. Gameplay is that of a roguelike with resource management and survival aspects. The game is set in space and will see you maintaining and fixing your ship before you travel. The graphics are still fairly impressive for an older game (original release was 2016). And the trailer shows a fair few things you’ll be able to do in the game.
If that wasn’t good enough the game also had a free prologue to try out. Or you can just pick up the full game at 90% off until June 12th.
A fairly infamous game makes an appearance on this list of 6 Steam Indies. Postal 2 developed and published by Running With Scissors is a non-linear sandbox game. The basic concept is that you control The Postal Dude and try to run some errands during an average week in his life. How you choose to complete these errands is up to you. The game has the tagline “only as violent as you are”. And it is well earned. You can choose to play the game as a pacifist, finding peaceful solutions to your tasks. Or you can choose to burn it all to the ground. It is juvenile, sick, violent, and well-liked. Plus there is Steam Workshop access so you can download all sorts of mods to change the game further. Play it your way, whatever that is.
At 90% off until June 9th, there has never been a better time to play it your way. There are even a few bundles available at the moment that share the deep discount.
Continuing the trend of somewhat juvenile games made for dumb fun. We have Dino D-Day a team-based vs FPS game set in World War 2, starring the Allied Forces, Axis troops, and of course Dinosaurs. Developed and published by 800 North and Digital Ranch. With 9 playable human classes (6 Allied and 3 Axis). And 7 playable dino classes (1 Allied and 6 Axis), plus plenty of weapons and dino skills to try out. The game is a serious blast, roaring with all sorts of madcap fun. Get a team of friends together for an inaccurate recreation of WW2. Or just jump into a server with some randoms for some crazy matchups where just about anything can happen.
The game is 90% off and you can even purchase a 90% off 4 pack to guarantee some friends (assuming you have 3 or more friends who want to play). This deal is on until June 9th and then it’ll be extinct…but who knows how long for.
Putrefaction 2: Void Walker
Up next we have another FPS game, however, this one is more of an arcade game. Developed and published by Kazakov Oleg. The game has been referred to as a budget DOOM clone. So if you can’t afford DOOM or just one some more arcade FPS action, then this might be the game for you. The game contains an upgrade system for your weapons. A campaign that will see you shoot a lot of varied creatures in the face or wherever else you can manage to hit them. And a rocking heavy metal soundtrack that reinforces the not quite DOOM but in the same ballpark aspect.
At 90% off the budget, the game is an even better deal than normal. But only until June 9th.
Rounding out this week’s 6 Steam Indies we have the sixth game of the list. Bloody Trapland is a multiplayer platformer both developed and published by 2Play. The game contains over 100 levels all filled with countless deadly traps. An adventure mode you can play solo or with up to 4 friends for a co-op chance at winning. However, it also contains both a race and a deathmatch mode if you’re feeling more competitive. Both are simple enough to explain. Naturally, race mode is to find out who can get to the end the fastest. Just like in adventure death will restart you so don’t get cocky until you’ve passed the finish line. And deathmatch is scored by who gets the most kills, so don’t be shy about murdering your friends.
Until the 9th of June, this game is on sale for 90% off. Just like Dino D-Day you can buy a 4-pack for you and your friends. However, the discount is not applied to the 4-pack so you’d be better off buying a copy and then buying 3 more gift copies if you want to save money.
And with that, another week is in the bag. Join us again next week when we list off some awesome games on sale during the Games Festival: Summer Edition.
