On an average day, about a dozen new games are released on Steam. And while we think that’s a good thing, it can be understandably hard to keep up with. Potentially exciting gems are sure to be lost in the deluge of new things to play unless you sort through every single game that is released on Steam. So that’s exactly what we’ve done. If nothing catches your fancy this week, we’ve gathered the best PC games you can play right now and a running list of the 2020 games that are launching this year.
I Am Dead
Release: October 9
Developer: Hollow Ponds, Richard Hogg
Price: $19.99 | £15.49 | AU$28.95
From the creators of Wilmot’s Warehouse and Hohokum comes I Am Dead, a puzzle game that, as the name implies, follows the trevails of a dead protagonist. This fellow is Morris Lupton, curator of a museum on the “tiny” island of Shelmerston, who following his death teams up for his deceased dog Sparky. Once dead, he learns that Shelmerston is threatened by looming disaster, and the only way to avert that disaster is to explore the island, dissect the lives and minds of its inhabitants, and then use this information to prevent its collapse. As you’d expect from these developers, it’s a gorgeous game to watch in action.
