Game news The 6 Steam games of the week you can’t miss

As always, after the indie games of the week, here are the Steam games that you should not miss during the period from April 25 to May 1, 2022. And, as often, independent developers have us prepared many surprises. Specifically: a sci-fi strategy game that promises to be great, but also big monsters that destroy cities, not to mention the adventures of a little robot.


A real-time strategy game in the Dune universe? Rather than twice! Because this is what the French studio Shiro Games (Northguard, Evoland) is offering with their new Dune Spice War project. Of course, here we find the famous universe imagined by Frank Herbert and especially the planet Arrakis, where different peoples face each other in order to control the “spice”, a substance with powers – however mysterious – powers. That will be necessary choose from 4 factions to make war, that is, Atreides, Harkonnen, Smugglers, and Fremen. But the only path to victory will not be just brute force. Like any good strategy game, Shiro’s game has a political and economic dimension.

We continue with another strategy game with science fiction, but a more uninhibited SF. It’s Kaiju Wars, the new game from the Foolish Mortals Games studio. The goal? Block the way to the huge creatures before they destroy the city, in a playground reminiscent of Into The Breach. To achieve this goal, you will need to place a lot of things on the road of monsters (tanks, planes) without forgetting to build military complexes and deploy defeated weapons. Fights that will take place in single player mode and in cities around the world, but also in a creative section, where the player will be able to imagine their city, their setting, and then share everything online. A very good point. Finally, greet the excellent artistic direction, very nice to see. What to fill your eyes.

After the huge creatures, here comes a robot, but much smaller! Haiku, the robotis an action and adventure game from metroidvania, an interconnected world that will gradually open up through the acquisition of skills. Aside from its colorful art direction and all in pixel art, the project is very reminiscent of Hollow Knight. “Dodge, shoot and cut while fighting fierce-looking machines. Challenge your skills, your reflexes through melee fighting and epic head-to-head battles,” the project’s Steam page explains. Of course, there will not only be fights to get your teeth into. With a gallery of characters that promises to be great – at least obviously – Haiku The Robot does not seem to neglect the narrative aspect. It is also a matter of unraveling the “mysteries that surround us.”

No doubt robots are on the rise in late April! After Haiku The Robot, we introduce you MetalMind, from the Whirllaxy studio. Is an action game with rogue-lite elements, Introduces The Gungeon style. In addition, the title is also seen from above with a gameplay that uses two sticks, one to move and the other to aim. And he points out, it will have to be done often, to the extent that the AWC organization decides without notice to stop the production of robots. Obviously, you disagree with that. The great peculiarity of Metal Mind seems to be its robot creation system, which is based on four well-differentiated elements: the body, which determines the ability to survive; the core, to power the robot; the actuator who manages the movement and the weapons. What to experience in abundance?

In a much more realistic setting than Kaiju Wars, here it comes Capital: Sparks of the revolution, a city building management game based on class struggle. And of course you – as a player – are the mayor. “You have to run a city with limited resources. Balancing the needs of the people and the development of the city and dealing with the angry crowds in the streets “, we can learn on Steam. The city thus brings together three classes: the nobles, the bourgeois, the workers. Of course, each has a “If you prefer one, the other will go up. But following this struggle will not be the only important thing. You will also have to develop new technologies and improve your people. Many things for a game that promises to be complete.

We finally end up with a title that seems to have already convinced a lot of people even before its release. On Steam, Dorfromantik gets 97% of the “extremely positive” reviews from over 12,000 reviews, which is not bad! The title is about to leave early access after more than a year of improvements. Should it be done there? Quietly build village landscapes from small tiles. The atmosphere there is very relaxed. Each game starts with a randomly generated stack, which you’ll need to organize gradually. But some tiles contain special objects, with tasks to complete, such as “windmill that wants to be next to 6 fields of grain,” for example. The game is over when your fight is over. But of course, the further you go, the more new features you’ll unlock for upcoming games. A smooth game that will make you start the week in a real cloud.
