Currently my Steam Sale damage count is higher than I care to admit. However, during recent sales I have learned to use that time to clean up my wishlist. After all, if a game doesn't move off my wishlist after it's at a deep discount, why is it on my wishlist to begin with? Let's take a look at a few games that were recently promoted to my backlog and headed to a Game Curious near you.
Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide - This Warhammer group survival game has always sounded fun, but it does require friends to play with and we have a bad habit of not sticking with games that we start. It was hard to talk multiple people into Vermintide at full price, but that's exactly what sales are for. Let's burn these rats and get some loot!
Deadbolt - I wasn't waiting for a sale on Deadbolt, I just didn't notice that it had come out yet. The next game from the Risk of Rain developers puts you in the shoes of a reaper against an "undead uprising." Stealth action plus grim reaper? Sounds like a good time and math equation.
Flamebreak - Another "roguelite" game with some interesting twinstick combat and lots of different character build options. Something in this game has to stick with me.
12 is Better Than 6 - The top-down hand-drawn Wild West is a shooting perspective I've never participated in. Draw! Get it?**
Sublevel Zero - I keep looking for a roguelike game in first person to grab me like some its 2d cousins. Maybe the difference will be piloting a gunship instead of walking around a dungeon.
Pony Island - I didn't think this madness could get any cheaper. Time to go on vacation.
The Deadly Tower of Monsters - ACE Team always make memorable kinds of weird. Dick Starspeed and friends are begging me to join their 1970's sci-fi adventure B-movie, but you know, as a video game. I don't understand either.
If you have any other discoveries of your own for Backlog to the Future, let me know in the comments.
