After my previous experience with Project Zomboid, I'd be more than pleased to see the game available on Steam.
The Steam Greenlight Thread
This topic is locked from further discussion.
I'd recommend that you guys check out this game.
It's super polished, the game looks beautiful and fun.
Naturally, there's also a bunch of hot garbage; I'd really love to see a Quick Look featuring a random selection of these games (similar to the XBLIG Quick Look)
Is this real life?
Is this a fantasy?
This will be a interesting experiment for sure.
Is this a Wii U launch title?
Project Zomboid is worthy of your attention and money. I wrote a blog about it a while ago which you can read over here, but I might as well paste in a little snippet just to give you an idea:
During one playthough I was spotted through the window by a stranger with a shotgun. He ordered me to open the door or he would open fire. I told him to leave us alone, but he just laughed. When I ducked out of sight he yelled "I'm going to kill you, motherfucker!" before blundering off into the darkness. I never saw him again, though I could hear shotgun blasts echoing off the nearby buildings.
Another time I had ventured further out into town, turned a corner into a horde of zombies, and was forced to retreat and barricade myself into a hardware store. This was loaded with hammers, nails, saws and other practical tools, though lacked the one thing I really needed, which was food. I huddled against the far wall, baseball bat raised, watching the health of the door gradually drop as the zombies on the other side slowly battered it down.
There was another time when I drank a bottle of whiskey, passed out, only to wake up and find the building completely full of zombies - another when I got lost in the woods, surrounded by the ghouls, and collapsed from exhaustion. I have been playing in small doses, each game rarely lasting more than about 20 minutes, but I'm finding each adventure desperately unique and dynamic.
I'd definitely pick up Afterfall if it appears on Steam. I liked the demo - it wasn't amazing, but it was definitely enjoyable.
Also, I'd recommend:
- Unepic - A pretty good, RPG/metroidvania (well, ok, it was good, at least, up until I got up to a boss that causes you to drop your items) =/
- Escape Goat - a pretty fun little puzzle-platformer. Also, a bonus 'masocore' mission at the end of the game, which really becomes crazy hard.
- Jetpack 2 - I played the shit out of the original one (mostly making heaps of levels in the editor).
- Receiver- Basically, a rogue-like FPS. At the moment, I don't think the game has much content, but they're allegedly continuing to work on it.
- Dream- A really pretty/surreal looking Dear Esthery kind of game. I believe there are actual puzzle elements though, not just exploration.
- Underrail - An isometric RPG that seems heavily inspired by the original two Fallouts :o
- The Real Texas - Going by the Quick Look, this game seems banananananas.
Fly'n looks damn great, reminds me of Rayman.
Hey guys, check out Venetica.
Eleusis (http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=129065782) seems like a pretty swell first-person horror adventure that is clearly inspired by Penumbra/Amnesia:
Also, there's a demo out on the developer's website - http://www.eleusisgame.com/Demo.html

I beseech thee, Giant Bomb community, vote for Drox Operative at its Greenlight page: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=122180124! It sounds very interesting. I haven't played it yet (I want it on Steam) but if it is anything like Soldak Entertainment's previous game - Din's Curse - it is undoubtably a great deal of fun.
I want it on Steam and you do, too. Vote now.
