These walls donít do a drat thing to keep the cold out.
I should go outside and walk.
Instead, I light another cigarette and keep working.

MAKE DRUGS - Program your molecular synthesizer (MOLEK-SYNTEZ) to convert ordinary industrial chemicals like benzene, acetone, and hydrochloric acid into a variety of small molecules with various pharmacological effects.
SHOW OFF - Optimize your solutions and share them with the world using the built-in score histograms, friend leaderboards, and animated GIF exporter.
CHEAT AT CARDS - In a move that should surprise no one, MOLEK-SYNTEZ contains an original Zachtronics solitaire game. When you get stuck, cheat and place your cards wherever you want. Just don't do it so much that you get in over your head...

it is what it looks like, you run a factory and produce goods at a profit. the gameplay loop comes in optimizing and streamlining your manufacturing process, as more complex products require more complex chains of parts assembly. i've already gotten my money's worth out of it, it's a definite must get if you like cartoony games about gnomes working production lines

Planet Zoo just came out today

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UCgppIh1tnY

https://store.steampowered.com/app/703080/Planet_Zoo/

still wondering why this needs to be another game with extremely akward building mechanics. No free rotation, just weird angles. Building fences is akward too with a fixed length for some reason.

Animals do look amazing though. Sure hope this won't be another Jurassic Park with great visuals but not much more to it.

My job isn't solving logic problems, it's getting around holes in the buggy platform my company uses. Going home to a zachtronics game where everything is designed with intent is incredibly refreshing even when they try to trip you up lol.

Following Steam releases regularly for this thread makes it clear how insane the schedule is and how many interesting, good-looking titles just get overlooked in the flood. It's brutal.

Here are some cool releases from the last few days that caught my eye:

Meteorfall: Krumit's Tale - some kind of card-based roguelike? No idea but it looks loving dope



Ritual: Crown of Horns - top-down twin-stick shooter set in horror wild west



Scatteria - post-apocalyptic shooter - a...post-apocalyptic shooter with survival elements and co-op



Damaged in Transit - item-delivery management puzzle game



The Coma 2: Vicious Sisters - a horror-survival adventure game



SUPERVERSE - a top-down arcade space shooter

This but unironically

Sadly though after checking it out, it's cute but pretty limited in scope and frustratingly opaque in what you can do. No menu or interface as far as I can tell, and you have to scroll through the standard Unity startup window to even see what commands you have (e.g. bark0, bark1 ). Still, it's cute enough to run around as a stretchy blobdog barking your head off and jumping into things.

Remember that trailer from years ago where objects changed size depending on how near or far from the camera you moved them? It actually came out: Superliminal. Looks like it's an EGS exclusive, if you've got a bee in your bonnet about that.

To be honest the comic books didn't excel in writing but rather in atmosphere and absolutely amazing art that would have an incredible ammount of character building squeezed into a single diorama. The story was full of standard noir cliches (which was kinda the point) and dialogues were servicable at best. The game being good really depends on the creators' knowledge of where the strengths of the series lie.

i want to point out that this looks like furry poo poo but it's based on this european comic series that is american hardboiled detective stories, but with animal people. so if you're worried that this is going to be owo rawr nonsense think more LA Noire but you're playing as a sleek cat-man private investigator in 1950's new york, and the chief of police is a german shepard, and the mobsters are like turtles and flamingos. in one of the comics there's a racist white nationalist group but all the members are cold weather animals like polar bears and arctic foxes. nary a glomp in sight

Plenty of nudity though because it wouldn't be a European noir comic without it.
