Z – Ziggurat
Hey Geeks, it’s Andrea and I am here with a cold and severe sore throat, but I am here. It is so great to see your beautiful faces. Er.. not see. I don’t know what I am saying. Anyway, we are going to go over 27 games that you probably never heard of, but should definitely give a chance. Alright Geeks, let’s go.
27. 10 Second Ninja
Let’s not leave the numbers out here. We don’t want to upset them. We’ve all heard what 7 did to 9. Anyway, so 10 second ninja is a game where you have 10 seconds to complete a level. It starts out easy, but quickly becomes challenging. Especially if you feel the need to get perfect stars on all the levels.
26. A – A.R.E.S: Extinction Agenda
ARES is actually one of the first games I can remember playing on steam. I hate to compare it to this, but the game play feels a bit reminiscent of Megaman. If you’re into 2D side scrolling platformers, you are in for hours of fun.
25. B – The Baconing
Here is a game aiming right at your funny bone. Of course, I am under the impression that almost anything with bacon in the title is good. This rings true here. The Baconing is actually a sequal, so there are a couple games you may want to play before getting here, but if you enjoy a little humor in your games, you should love all 3.
24. C – Cinders
I am not going to leave those of you out who love visual novels. It isn’t just click to read with some still pictures, like honestly most visual novels that I have played in the past, it is more interactive than that. As far as visual novels go, it is one of my favorites. Not just because it’s a new take on Cinderella, but because it actually feels like you are effecting the game.
23. D – Draw a Stickman: EPIC
You get to draw your own character and tools to play with in this fun adventure game. You can play it on PC or a tablet. Either way you play it, the levels are fun and there are plenty of secrets in the levels to keep your attention.
22. E – Everyday Genius: SquareLogic
I believe this was the second game that I got on steam and one of my most played. It isn’t a super challenging puzzle game, but it is incredibly relaxing. If you’re one of those people who likes to sit and do sudoku while watching a show, this is for you.
21. F – Feeding Frenzy 2
Okay so this isn’t the most original game concept in the world. There are a handful of these eat the fish smaller than you games, but what can I say.. They’re chill and enjoyable. This one is pretty straight forward, you have a size goal with each level and a certain number of lives to beat the game with should you need them. Honestly, you probably will.
20. G – Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams
You can never have too many good platformers in your library. Emphasis on the word good. This one one I personally adore, you change between characters on a whim to change your world and be able to pick up certain colored gems and use each girls unique ability. In the spirit of AGDQ 2018 finishing up, if there was a game I would want to learn to speed-run, this would probably be it.
19. H – Hell Yeah!
Hell Yeah! is another great platformer. You get to play as the prince of hell, who just so happens to be a bunny who is understandably angry because some jerks posted some private pictures of him and his ducky online. As the player, you get to help him take his revenge and prove he is pure evil.
18. I – Ittle Dew
If you like to play indie Zelda-like games, Ittle Dew is one you need to check out. The main character is a ‘little dude’ with a humorous sidekick. Once you finish the first game, there is a sequel on the Steam store worth checking out.
17. J – Jamestown
Jamestown is the perfect game for players who like games with lots and lots of pewpew. You can even take down enemies with up to 3 of your friends. If you like top down shootem up style games, this is a great one to get your hands on.
16. K – Knights of Pen and Paper
I actually didn’t play this on Steam, I played it on a Kindle with Kindle underground, so when I saw it was not only on Steam, but also in my library, I was pretty excited. Apparently there is even a second one. Can we call it KOPAP? I want to call it KOPAP. Anyway, KOPAP is an enjoyable pixel game inspired by Tabletop RPGs.
15. L – Little Inferno
I have beat this game so many times that I probably shouldn’t admit to it. It is just one of my favorite chill games. You purchase items, light them on fire, earn money, and repeat. There are collections and you can make special achievements by combining specific items to burn together.
14. M – Mini Ninjas
Mini Ninjas is a fun, adorable, adventure game where you start out to playing as Hiro and rescue your friends who are missing. Once you rescue them, they become part of your roster of ninjas to play as. Each with their unique fighting style.
13. N – Neon Drive
Although you’re controlling a car, this isn’t exactly a racing game. The gameplay is similar to audiosurf, but sometimes you play with the camera behind the car and sometimes you play from a top down city view.
12. O – OddPlanet
The style of this game is clearly inspired by Limbo. The controls work similarly too. If you were a fan of Limbo, this is one work checking out. The biggest issue I had with this game was the default resolution and inability to change it within game, but overall it is still worth a play through
11. P – Plantera
When I was looking through my Steam library to put this list together, I decided to see what this was. I honestly had no idea. I had only intended to play it for just a bit, but ended up playing it way too long before I stopped myself. And then kept checking it a few times a day. It is a nice simple chill game, as most of these are. You plant trees, bushes, and ground plants for harvest as well as have some farm animals around. The products earn you money that you can spend on more plants and animals.
10. Q – Quest of Dungeons
I’m a little bit in love with this right now. This is a perma-death dungeon crawler where you get to play as one of a handful characters. The graphics are simple pixel graphics, which just works for what it is. It’s pretty self explanatory, but super addicting to keep playing.
9. R – Rampage Knights
Rampage Knights is a great beat-em-up, perma-death, dungeon crawler to play with a friend. You can of course play by yourself, but everything is better with a friend. In Rampage Knights you can find better weapons, take potions that can be either positive or negative, use throwing items, find magic spells, and just have a great time.
8. S – Snapshot
You get to play as an adorable robot who just has his camera to protect him. You use this camera to complete puzzles by picking up items, placing them, and other interactions.
7. T – TinyKeep
I love games like this, so I am a little biased here. Perma-death games are kinda my thing. This one is cute and although it could be challenging to a new player, isn’t really that bad. I feel like if the dev did a sequel to this, it would be even better.
6. U – Undergarden
Here is another chill game. In this one you get to beautify the world, using pollen to grow the plants and light up the underground caverns filled with puzzles and hidden secrets.
5. V – Vertical Drop Heroes
Here another one of your play a game until you die, unlock what you unlock, play again, we have been calling them perma-death dungeon crawlers this video. I won’t call it a roguelike or roguelite because I know how people are about that and I don’t want to get into that, but.. Vertical Drop Heroes is one of my favorites.
4. W – WASTED
In a post-apocalyptic world where beer is king and the vibe is 80s, you get to take down your enemies with guns and other weapons while dungeon craw.. I mean bar crawling in this rogueli.. I mean perma-death game.
3. X – Xotic
Here is another one that is just so classic Steam for me. Not that it was developed by valve or anything, it’s just an older game that I remember playing many years ago in my earlier Steam days. I’m not even sure when or where I got the game, but it has always been there like a trusty friend. It is a first person shooter with multiple play modes for every level. I really wish there was a sequel to this game, more people really need to enjoy this.
2. Y – Ys
Ys is an RPG series that is reminiscent of old RPG games. The fighting is pretty straight forward and the artwork is great. The story is around 7 or so hours to enjoy, depending on how you play. I highly recommend Ys to RPG fans.
1. Z – Ziggurat
This was probably one of my most played games in the end of 2017. I don’t know when I got it, just installed it one day in September or so and fell in love. The maps, enemies, buffs/debuffs, everything is completely RNG every time you play through it. There are plenty of characters and difficulties, this game can keep you entertained for hours. Just a heads up for anyone with the same issues as me, it does give me a bit of motion sickness sometimes.
Alright Geeks, that’s going to do it for this video. Thank you so much for hanging out with me today. I hope you guys can understand my clearly through my sickness. I look forward to spending 2018 with you Geeks. This is going to be a better year. Do me a favor and give us a like, comment, and if you’re new subscribe so you can be here for more. Alright Geeks, I will see you next time.
