Orbital Bullet, Squadron 51, Super Seducer 3, Retro Machina, and More Included in the Steam Game Festival
If you’re getting in on the Steam Game Festival fun this week, don’t miss the first-look demos from our award-winning clients Assemble Entertainment, Super.com, and Richard La Ruina! To help lighten your inbox today, we’ve recapped all of the exciting playable games available until Tuesday, February 9, 2021.
First up, renowned dating coach and best-selling author Richard La Ruina invites players to get a first taste of the third — and final — installment in the (in)famous series of Full Motion Video(FMV) dating and seduction simulation games: Super Seducer 3: The Final Seduction ahead of its launch to Steam on February 15, 2021.
From the gym to the supermarket, Super Seducer 3 covers all dimensions of potential dating disasters, teaching men how to swoon their lady- or ladies-of-interest with respect and composure. Of course, it wouldn’t be Super Seducer without the hilarious outtakes, absurd situations, and cringe-inducing pick-up lines that have raised the series to cult-like popularity with fans.
Next, from Super.com comes Retro Machina, a single-player action game set in a retro-futuristic universe. The game shows the journey of a little robot unraveling the mysteries of a world long forgotten by humanity. In this game, players take on the role of a solitary worker drone, labeled by the robot society as a malfunctioning unit, and banished from his home. Equipped with the ability to control other machines, our hero must use all the tools at his disposal to rebuild himself and find out if any intelligent life remains.
Last, but certainly not least, publisher Assemble Entertainment is pleased to showcase its lineup of highly-anticipated games that are taking part in the festival. Players itching to get their hands on some of the exciting demos that the event has to offer can check out the whole “Assemble Quartet,” which includes 360° rogue-lite platformer Orbital Bullet, pixel art noir adventure Lacuna, urban-survival RPG Highrisers, and ’50s-inspired SHMUP Squadron 51. For more on each title, continue on below:
Winner of ‘Best Concept with Prototype’ category and 2nd prize in the ‘Prototype Young Talent’ category at Deutscher Entwicklerpreis 2019, Orbital Bullet is a fast-paced 360° action-platformer with rogue-lite elements based in a unique, ring-shaped sci-fi world where all of the action takes place in a circular pattern. Players must fight through a variety of procedurally-generated planets and use intense body modifications, crafting, and heavy weaponry to make it out alive.
From DigiTales Interactive comes Lacuna, a dialogue-driven pixel art-style adventure set in a captivating 2D sci-fi “Noir” universe. Play as special agent Neil Conrad as he sets out to uncover the truth behind the investigation of a lifetime. In this immersive detective story, players will ask tough questions, collective damning evidence, and carefully put the pieces together until the ugly truth reveals itself … or not!
In Highrisers, humanity has been struck by a mysterious prion disease, which left those infected trapped in an eternal dream. Unable to wake up, they transformed and changed into the mysterious dreamers: sleepwalking, zombie-like creatures that shun the light. They now dwell in the dimly lit urban canyons of the cities and the lower levels of highrise buildings, hiding away from the sun — only to come out at night to get those who still resist. Four survivors are stuck on a skyscraper in a desolated metropolis and only through tenacity, tinkering, and teamwork will they prevail.
Developed by Loomiarts, Squadron 51 is an intense SHMUP packaged in gorgeous black and white ’50s-inspired style with live-action cutscene sequences that call back to the golden era of 1950’s sci-fi icons such as War of the Worlds, Plan 9 From Outer Space, and The Day the Earth Stood Still. The dimension-bending shoot-’em-up features 2D action in a world of deep 3D environments and boasts a fast-paced shooter experience with all of the adornments of classic alien warfare.
