Meat & Greed
Meat & Greed is a 3D side scroller puzzle platformer game set in a slaughterhouse.
By controlling cows, chickens, and other animals, the player has the ability to manipulate the environment to solve puzzles, and eventually escape the place. Intense atmosphere of horror and visual narration will help to convey criticisms of the modern meat industry beyond a supermarket shelf.
All puzzle indie game lovers, as well as environmentally cautious players will appreciate both the moral goal and the refreshing approach to movement, switching between playable characters, and narrative design of the game.

9.5/10 – One of the best games I’ve played in the past decade. Easily in my top 10 games of all time.
A modern-day Bioshock… on crack!
⚠️⚠️This review does 𝗡𝗢𝗧 contain any spoilers but other reviews might. The game is story-centric with key plot points and twists which some turd-burgers like to spoil⚠️⚠️
I played Prey (2017) just after it released and really didn’t know what to expect, I read that it had some cool weapons and crafting mechanics so I gave it a try and… Oh My Goodness… it’s incredible! I have now completed 5 full playthroughs and even created some mods for the game as well as helping others create or improve mods. It is genuinely one of the most immersive, jaw-dropping, captivating games I have ever played, I adore it, and it regularly goes on sale for under £$€5 which is the bargain of the century.

They are weak, bothersome, without brains. You will be better. Scan and slam, until it is done.
Too Long; Didn’t Read: Prey is an immersive, slow paced, adventure game that not only creates tension through its horror-inspired enemies and its dark hallways, but also thanks to its morbid technologies and concepts.
It rewards exploration and attention to detail, and the world itself is probably one of the best and most realised in gaming. Its puzzlelike approach to combat may alienate some, but understanding it comes as part of the well-balanced progression.
Spirits of Xanadu
Immersive storytelling meets sci-fi horror adventure in this space-based tale which sends you to the far reaches of the known universe to a deserted starship full of mysteries. Inspired by the likes of System Shock, Deus Ex and Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, this is Spirits of Xanadu.
Set in an alternate 1980s, at the farthest edge of the explored universe, the research ship Xanadu lies in orbit of an unknown planet. With communications down and no word from the crew in several months, a lone operative is sent in to revive the dead ship and bring her back to Earth.

This might just be one of my favorite games.
Now don’t be fooled, this isn’t a shooter, at least not really. It has shooting in it, yes, but that’s not the focus and there are a limited number of enemies which will never respawn. The map is also fairly small but very easy to navigate once you’ve been through once or twice (and get the lights on) I’d say this is far more of a puzzle game with an incredible atmosphere. The majority of the gameplay revolves around puzzle solving while occasionally shooting robots. The puzles for the most part aren’t all that difficult, with the exception of one which leads you to one of the three endings. The minimalist style might be a bit offputting depending on your sensibilites but I personaly thought it looked pretty nice. (again, after I got the lights on, Before then it COULD be a bit difficult to figure out what you’re doing or where you’re going)
Sputnik is an indie arcade space game where player needs to repair old Soviet Union space settlements. It’s a single player game with cyberpunk style graphics and real retro feel. Gameplay is based on old school games from 1980’s and 1990’s with lives and permadeath.
Player needs to explore abandon settlement in space and fix electricity, oxygen and water generators and make the settlement inhabitable. Explore the settlement and find materials to fix generators and upgrade your space ship to face the challenge!
Explore and survive: Explore the settlements and find pickups, repair the generators and try to survive.
Upgrade your ship: Player can upgrade his ship on the start of each level. Ship is being upgraded with scraps left from previous level.
Upgrade your weapon: Weapon can be upgraded as well. Increase fire rate and ammo capacity with scraps.
Use mods for better gaming experience: Game supports mods. Player can set default values from simple text file.
Exceptional Soundtrack: Music and sounds are influenced by classic 8-bit, synth wave and ambience music.
There are multiple levels and each level is generated semi-procedurally to give a bit different experience on each gameplay. It is also possible to mod different properties of player and game.
The game itself is very simple. You’re an object that can change between a ball and a disk, using gravity tech to either increase/decrease gravity, making you gain speed very fast very quickly as long as you use slopes smartly as you would in a tony hawk game.
Once you get a bit of speed you store energy, that energy gets used to make you into a disk which you can use to fly around with. Depending on your angle you can use it to go even higher, get more speed, fly even faster and get a sense of speed that even Sonic himself could get jealous of. It’s all up to you how adrenaline-fueled you want to make your adventure.
I’m not sure how to proceed with this one…..bear with me and please hear me out. Exo One is a game I really liked but cannot recommend to you. You need to be of a certain ilk to get into this one and I really suggest watching a few bits of a playthrough and reading reviews on both sides of the fence.
I am giving Exo One the thumbs up because it definitely does not deserve a thumbs down. But this is not a thumbs up in the way that if you like a certain kind of game then you will enjoy this. More like I liked it, everyone else on here seems to be going gaga for it but I can’t help but feel a lot of the reviews here are part of the Kickstarter crowd or were at least following it. I honestly expected a Mixed or Positive average on Steam. Not an Overwhelmingly Positive for sure.
Oddyssey: Your Space, Your Way
The world was doomed, but that was just the beginning. Now four thawed-out crewmembers are the only hope for two million passengers seeking life on a new world. In an effort to save humanity from an earth-shattering asteroid, an ARK Mothership was built to transport two million frozen souls safely to a new, habitable world. At least, that was the plan. Midway through its long journey, the ARK Mothership computers discovered that it was far off course and low on fuel. With no other options, four passengers were awoken early.
Their job? To crew the “Oddyssey” resource vessel, mine asteroids for resources and help the ARK reach the next source of fuel. The process is slow, and more crew members may need to be awoken, but the fates of 1,999,996 fellow passengers hang in the balance.
It’s up to you and your crew to Build, Explore, and Manage your team to get enough resources for the next big jump to a habitable planetary system. The future of humanity literally depends on it!
Collect resources by mining nearby asteroids. Use the collected material to create new tools and technology or send back to the ARK as fuel.
A good crew works effectively. While one is building a new science station, another can be mining asteroids or improving the ship.
Crewmembers can gain temporary boosts and debuffs while working. Ignoring a negative status can impact your performance and eventually lead to grave consequences.
Discover lost alien technology and study it to improve your own.
**Use resources to repair and expand your ship and upgrade its technology. Defend it from alien creatures, solar flares and dangerous asteroids.
Every crew member is an important and unique part of your crew. Unless they die, then they are preplaced with one of the 1.9 million other potential crew members. Assign the new crew where they best fit, or use some gene editing to get the skills you need to survive.**
The Astronomy Game
Very informative in a cool and interactive way. Story was fun and soundtrack was nice, I recommend this game for people who want to learn about astronomy in a fun way.
Does a good job at teaching some interesting information about astronomy, and a pretty cool story line that I liked playing through.
A Hole In Space
At the moment, the game is unplayable. The commands to navigate are highly unintuitive. The devs should update the navigation so that instead of relying only on keys being pressed, the direction of navigation could be determined by the angle of the camera. Moreover, they should also give some visual cues if the most nearby stars are up or down in the plane you are navigating. Otherwise, you may lose a good half hour without absorbing any star, quickly becoming frustrated with the game.

Need a puzzling game to play, but you don’t have time for a large scale, AAA title? This game is for you. The puzzles in this title will get your brain working, requiring you to sift through clues in emails and files as well as deciphering codes left by the inhabitants of this abandoned station. You’ll have to carefully manage your time and resources between crafting items to keep your life support stable, and fending off alien intruders.
Good, satisfying puzzles
Pixelated visuals and simple geometry are a nice change from the realism of today’s games
This is an interesting game. It started off a bit flat, seemed like straight out time/resource management. You split your time between telling drones to go auto-gather resources, rushing around to build stuff, and then occasionally going outside to shoot bugs before they get inside and cause problems.
But there’s a surprising amount of logs and emails and info you can look through, and the offscreen support character makes her own little comments on what you’re reading.
All while mutant alien bugs eat through the walls to come get you.
