Oxenfree €3.39 / £2.99 / $4.00

If you’re looking for a good indie game (which is really hard to find when you have all those crappy games floating around Steam recently) Oxenfree is now cheaper on Humble Store. Comparing to Steam’s price it’s a bargain! It’s a Steam redeemable key of course. Get the game by going here.

Valve to replace Steam Greenlight with Steam Direct!

At first Steam Greenlight was looking really good, the idea of it, but today I can easily say that the Steam store has been cluttered with all of those shitty games that no one wants to play and fake reviews for free games. Valve has been dissatisfied with Steam Greenlight as well, even Gabe Newell described the system as “probably bad for the Steam community” in 2013. A year later, he stated outright that they have to “make Greenlight go away, not because it’s not useful, but because we’re evolving”.

The direction of that evolution was finally revealed! New system called Steam Direct is coming this spring. It will enable developers to get their games on Steam without having to pass an approval process first. Greenlight helped the indie developers. It also ended up bringing in a lot of money. Valve said that there are now more than 100 Greenlight games that have earned at least $1 million each, many of which likely would not have been released on Steam under the pre-Greenlight rules.

Changes on Steam like: user reviews, refund system and the implementation of Steam Curators have all improved the experience for both users and developers, the next step “is to establish a new direct sign-up system for developers to put their games on Steam,” according to Valve’s blog post.

“This new path, which we’re calling ‘Steam Direct,’ is targeted for spring 2017 and will replace Steam Greenlight,” Valve explains.

“We will ask new developers to complete a set of digital paperwork, personal or company verification, and tax documents similar to the process of applying for a bank account. Once set up, developers will pay a recoupable application fee for each new title they wish to distribute, intended to decrease the noise in the submission pipeline.”

Clearly the goal is to discourage the submission of Greenlight projects that are submitted in bad faith (jokes, stolen projects etc.). The amount of the publishing fee hasn’t been finalized yet.

“We want to make sure Steam is a welcoming environment for all developers who are serious about treating customers fairly and making quality gaming experiences,” Valve wrote. “The updates we’ve made over the past few years have been paving the way for improvements to how new titles get on to Steam, and Steam Direct represents just one more step in our ongoing process of making Steam better.”

Lets just all say it out loud, most people are dumb asses and they shouldn’t be able to vote for games to be released on Steam. It’s better if Valve picks games that are going to be on Steam instead.

Insurgency: Sandstorm looks incredible so far!

Source Engine used to be amazing. That was in 2004. These days you games are looking even better but nothing beats Unreal Engine 4. Thankfully New World Interactive knows what’s good and they have just released an amazing amount of concept art from their brand new Insurgency project. If you have no idea what Insurgency is go ahead and get yourself a key from one of the Steam Alternative stores or get it directly on Steam. You can try it out if it’s realistic enough for you, it has a coop mode and a very competitive online community.

But the current state of the game is kind of dull because of the Source Engine. The engine lacks good physics for example, sure Half-Life 2 looked great back then but it’s time to move on! Unreal Engine 4 is amazing. Enough of talking just look at the details below to see what I mean:

Insurgency: Sandstorm is a sequel to Insurgency that is bringing renowned hardcore shooter gameplay to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam next year, published by Focus Home Interactive. Also available on Steam, Sandstorm is using the Unreal Engine 4 platform to fulfill the potential of New World’s talented indie team. At its core, Sandstorm features the close-quarters infantry combat for multiplayer and cooperative gameplay that has established Insurgency as a cult classic for over 3 million players on Steam.

New World is also venturing into new territory with a story mode for 4-player cooperative and singleplayer gameplay. A groundbreaking narrative for the shooter genre, the story focuses on a female protagonist. Thematically, Insurgency: Sandstorm is inspired by real events and people, however this is a fictional story and characters.

Sure these are concept arts but I do believe that this company can deliver. Can’t wait for the game or some sort of beta to come out (supposedly by the end of this year).
