Hidden Gems: Great Steam indie games you should try this week (08/06)

There have been some great indie games released on Steam, here’s a few we selected for this week. You might discover a wonderful experience in this mix:


A psychological puzzle platformer with nods to Metroid and Castlevania – immerse yourself in this beautiful dreamscape.


A unique ‘abstract zen experience’. Place or remove the dots to initiate a race where the dominant colour wins. Lines also features endless hours where you can create your own levels with the Steam Workshop!


Run, hide and lose your mind in a chilling Lovecraftian game and challenge the ‘absolute’ limits of nature – soak up the atmosphere with your headphones at night.

Passpartout: The Starving Artist

See the world through the eyes of a French artist: create art and battle against the stuffy self-proclaimed art critics, survive your wine and baguette addiction and settle your debt.

World of One

Delve into a dark, depressing Poe-esque puzzle platformer with planet-based physics and mystery.

The Artifact

You are woken up from hypersleep in the future with a mysterious alien artifact – can you unlock the secrets of this short puzzle game?

Sentience: The Android’s Tale

A complex, choice-based narrative adventure game: see the world through the eyes of an android and encounter relevant questions about the future of AI and the human condition.

Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap

Sumptuous hand-drawn animation and a re-orchestrated soundtrack make this worth your time – a high quality remake, now available on Steam – check out the trailer here!


In a dystopian world that doesn’t seem like such a departure from our own future, people are content living under constant surveillance and are happily enslaved – break the chains of tyranny and mind control as Randall in this attractive platformer.


A top down, rogue-like, NES/SNES shoot ’em up with procedurally generated elements and a cracking chiptune soundtrack.
