The shortest month of the year is now gone, but it didn’t leave without a bang, at least not where new games are concerned. Instead of focusing on the popular releases everybody has heard of, I decided to point the spotlight on some Indie games. Simple games can create hours of fun, and every now and then something special comes out that overshadows even the big names. Let’s take a look at some of the ones that were released in February.
3. Mercenary Kings Reloaded
This 2D action game received a huge update in February, making it a whole new game, and a whole new experience. Jump into the shoes of a mercenary (or more of them: multiplayer is included!) and defeat the CLAW organization – all of this while being able to customize your guns and armour.
Although, if you are not a fan of a 90’s looking environment, you might want to look at the next game instead… Click here to go to the Steam page.
2. Freeman: Guerrilla Warfare
The trailers for this game are, frankly, awful. I nearly closed the browser at that point. But what caught my eye was the number of reviews, and how positive they were (2,224 at 91% when writing). So I checked it out.
As a leader in the game, you have to make advancements in both strategy and actual fighting – it’s an all-round conquest game. Making money and building an army may be very interesting to those of you who love traditional strategy games, but personally I was the most excited about the FPS part and how that plays. The Steam forums indicate the devs are active, and this game could be something rather interesting. Click here to go to the Steam page.
1. The Station
The most advanced of the games on this list, this sci-fi space-themed game is being billed as a masterpiece. It was successfully Kickstarted in November 2016, although delivery of the final game was several months late.
Its puzzle elements bring out suspense, and the space station surroundings create a unique atmosphere. Just looking at the trailers and some of the gameplay footage make me want to dive into it.
The Station is a first-person game, so it is great for those of us who like that style of game – just, this time, we’ll have to focus on the puzzles instead of aiming. Looking at the work that has gone into The Station, I’d say this is certainly worth checking out. The back-story to the game is that a research station has been setup to monitor a sentient alien species. But the team go out of contact, and a recon specialist is sent to investigate.
