Godot games in the Steam Next Fest (October 2021)
By: Ilaria Cislaghi 5 October 2021
As the days passes and the team and contributors work hard to deliver Godot 4.x and Godot 3.4, we want to shine a light on the amazing projects that are made using Godot.
Our project manager Rémi already collected all of them in a Twitter thread. The list of games is reproduced below.
The Steam Next Fest
Steam organises a recurring event called the Steam Next Fest:
Steam Next Fest is a multi-day celebration where fans can try out demos, chat with developers, watch livestreams, and learn about upcoming games on Steam. For developers, Steam Next Fest is an opportunity to get early feedback from players and build an audience for a future launch on Steam.
You have until the 7th of October 2021 @ 17:00 UTC to test the games!
Godot games at October's Steam Next Fest
Starting with TailQuest Defense by Kivano Software. You may recognize the (by now fairly old!) banner picture of the Godot website :)
Enjoy a relaxing time in the nature with The Garden Path by Louis Durrant!
Adventure in a much darker forest this time with Ben Lega's Nej.
Galactic Chef by @ThoughtQuake lets you become the best cook of the universe (well at least of the Interstellar Culinary Alliance®)!
The Zone: Stalker Stories by @IlluminatedGms is a story-rich card battler in a post-apocalyptic setting – what's not to love‽
Martial Law by @GroupFixer tells a story about Poland in the communist era, family, and making choices – all with gorgeous pixel art.
Ex-Zodiac by @BenHickling bears a strong similarity to a certain furry on-rails shooter, but we're all longing to scratch this SNES itch so it's very welcome! And it definitely goes beyond that inspiration to be its own very modern arcade shooter.
Bardsley Creative's @Seedlings_Game is probably the game featuring the most realistic nature graphics you've seen in a while - as they're all derived from photos of the beautiful Aotearoa New Zealand Bird.
Run, boy, run! Running is a victory. It probably doesn't include Woodkid songs, but @RunTheVideoGame 's soundtrack seems pretty fitting anyway for this fast-paced "die and retry" runner with a beautiful art direction!
Birb Café by @birbgames has you, a birb, make coffee for furry and feathery customers (who would have guessed)! It's a visual novel with branching paths and multiple endings. We don't know yet if it features skating birbs, we'll see!
Woodland Empire by @obvlong describes itself as an ANTI-citybuilder – control the elements and help your forest grow with thriving fauna and flora.
Smelted Kin: Inhuman Impact by @MicrobatStudio is a 2D shooter in a sci-fi environment, which has you play both a human character and an armored vehicle.
It's only in Chinese for now, but @Team9Games'《文字遊戲》 is looking pretty sweet! If we understand correctly, its prequel is "Word Game: Episode 0", which is one of the most popular Godot-made games on Steam (2500 reviews, 99% positive!).
Dark Crypt by @DaisyGames3 is a puzzle game with a horror setting, well on topic for the spooky season!
TOCOViX by @maxfox21 is a colorful strategy game which looks a bit like a board game, playable in singleplayer, local multiplayer or online!
More fast-paced runners you said? Have a go at @lunaticgames_ca's Tokyo Rogue and show your best parkour moves!
Manipulate gravity in Spinstar, @PixyDevs's precision puzzle platformer with great pixel art and music!
Terra Ventura by @LogicalProgres3 is a classic isometric action RPG with a ton of content!
Don't miss The Ballad of Bonky by @knutselco and its delightful hand-crafted clay art. This "bouncy arcade adventure" also includes local multiplayer.
Investigate an 18th century murder mystery in The Case of the Golden Idol by @ColorGray7, with hand-drawn dithered pixel artwork.
Let's go further back in time with @Priory_Games's Longphort, a Viking crew management game! Interesting premise? Check it out!
Igniting Spark Games' @StrivingLight is a rogue-lite ARPG with an "infinite expanding skilltree".
Hashi: Light by amiksemo is a minimalist and casual puzzle game with a ton of puzzles to solve.
Long Tail by Kamil Rams is Snake with a twist (a knot?) - adds in route planning based puzzle solving. It's tagged as relaxing so after checking all these cool but content heavy demos, that might be a good one to chill.
Growing Brains' Genetic Fluff has a lot to unpack, action beat 'em up RPG creature collection adventure game with local split screen multiplayer.
HackBerry Studio's @aris_journey is a precision platformer without any platforms. Time your moves well to navigate narrow corridors and collect stars.
CloaksAndCapes is a side-scroller with a dark theme and rage-inducing bosses!
@VoxStoryRPG by Current Year Gaming brings 3D digital content to tabletop roleplaying. The Game Master creates a 3D voxel world as support for the good old pen and paper roleplaying.
Move Dodge and Kill by @DjokaGames is a top-down roguelite shooter in a minimalist neon dungeon.
System Under Surveillance by @to_pixels, a stealth adventure with an adorable robot sidekick!
Mechanic 8230 by Nudiventra is a point and click adventure with a wonderful art direction!
And finally, @TDWorlds_game by MAKSIM VOLKAU is a roguelite strategy game and dynamic storytelling.
