A few weeks ago, we got to play a load of brand new indie steam games at PC Gamer weekender. So many in fact, that we’ve split them into two different videos for you! So if you want to find out about a clever running platformer that generates the level as you play, a fun multi-character dungeon crawler, a Victorian comedy stealth ’em up, a crazy racing game with homing melons or you’d like to date cats (yes you heard that right)… these videos are the list of new 2018 Steam games for you!

Nippon Marathon & Razed by PQube

Nippon Marathon is a something of a Mario Kart meets Micro Machines but with running kind of game but with mini-games and word association and well, it’s a hard game to describe for sure. There’s more than just a pinch of humour in the mix with this multiplayer party race game!

Razed is a fast-paced player platform game where you must race to the end of each level in the quickest time possible. Your player is strapped into a pair of power shoes that allow you to move at super-speed, jumps vast distances and drift, but these features come at a price – if you stop moving the shoes run out of power and explode!

SureFooting by Tableflip Games

SureFooting looks like any constant running platformer until you play it more than once. The game learns as it goes generating the levels procedurally based on your gameplay to try to outwit you and keep the game at the difficulty level set. You can’t memorise the levels in this one – it keeps you on your toes constantly and is both fun and challenging.

Murderous Pursuits by Blazing Griffin

Murderous Pursuits is a beautiful game full of detail and well thought out graphics with a fun and unique concept to match. It’s a Victoriana inspired multiplayer stealth-em-up set on a steampunk zeppelin where it’s kill or be killed – but with a humorous twist. Check out the player’s reactions behind us in the video to see what they made of it at the event!
