The Week of February 9, 2018

Hoverloop is a Splitscreen Arcade Arena Combat game. Access an array of customizable drones with unique abilities. Use teleportation, deathrays, control jammers and super speed to carry your team, or yourself, to victory!

This is a level editor for They Are Billions. It works by uploading a save file, making changes to the save file, and then loading that save file into the game. You can change the terrain, modify objects, and build custom gamemodes by editing the waves. Take a look in the tutorials section for a link to the level editor.

Realpolitiks is a streamlined real-time grand strategy game that allows you to become the leader of any contemporary nation. Dive deep into the issues of the modern world, with its current geopolitical borders, using your country's power and economic strength to engage in military conflicts and international affairs.

Frozen District, a young Polish team currently developing Warlocks 2: God Slayers, knows how to start an indie studio from scratch, and survive, while having fun in the process. Here's how they did it.

Furwind is a fun action-platformer game with colorful pixel-art where the player will revive the challenging experience of classic games. Guide our brave little fox in this adventure to free his world from a rising dark threat.


I haven't had the chance to try out They Are Billions yet, but I'm definitely excited for it. I've seen a lot of hype around the game, and now that there's a level editor out, I really need to make the time to go in and play around with it. It's one of the games I was really looking forward to this year. Another one I'm really excited about is Nova Nukers. It's a competitive multiplayer that has a pretty unique spherical level design. I thought it was interesting because I've never seen a multiplayer use that type of stage before. I'm definitely excited to give it a shot when it drops on Steam!
