The development team behind Alder’s Blood has clearly put a lot of thought into crafting a striking experience, and while the game has style and an engaging core gameplay loop, it’s also so shaky and unpolished it is difficult to recommend.
Moons of Madness incorporates Lovecraftian-style themes and a desolate planet setting of Mars to offer a creepy experience that, while interesting, falters when gameplay is involved.
While it may have been only a brief preview, Song of Horror shows genuine promise for what could be a very successful horror game.
Leaping, looting, lacerating, and laughing, Remnant: From The Ashes explodes with character, violence, and a down-right great time in co-op. The procedural generation of the missions presents players with surprises and challenges each time they boot up the title. With its roots in Dark Souls-like gameplay, this is sure to be a powerful title to land in 2019.
A challenging detective experience with interesting gameplay mechanics that will appeal to horror fans, but is hindered by wonky controls, loading screens, and an empty world.
While it delivers a strong start, Call of Cthulhu starts to stumble and fall near the end, demonstrating a lack of polish and poor localization.
Lovecraft’s Untold Stories is an amalgam of horror, madness, mystery, and the unknown. Choose from five unique characters as you fight your way through 12 randomly generated levels.

Thankfully, human and horror are equally vulnerable to molotovs and machine guns.
Darkest Dungeon: The Color of Madness is a fine addition to an already great game that adds perpetual, challenging content fit for veterans.

Cultist Simulator is the kind of game where “Just one more turn,” easily becomes “Four hours later…” It’s addicting even when it’s difficult and frustrating, and extremely satisfying when things finally start going right for you.
Seemingly an anomaly on the Steam store, Baobabs Mausoleum Ep. 1 Ovnifagos Don’t Eat Flamingos is a weird but worthwhile play. It presents a unique and twisted world and a story with a considerable extent of both human imagination and sanity. Each puzzle and problem is different and engaging, providing an innovative experience. As the first installment in the series, we have hopeful anticipation for a successor, to see how the developers will continue to polish what they have here.
