Here’s a fresh list of recently dropped games that you can buy on Steam, picked among various genres.
Retro PS1 graphics are here to stay, especially when it comes to the Horror genre.It's situated in an abandoned gaming arcade, complete with neon and gaudy carpet designs. As you explore this terrible, dimly lit arcade, you come upon a game named Janitor who releases a horrifying pursuer intent on killing you.

The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe is a reimagining of the 2013’s overly self aware cult classic The Stanley Parable. In Stanley Parable you don’t play the game, game plays you. You wake up as an office worker and find all of your friends missing and find yourself in a mania dream that doesn’t end. Stanley Parable breaks the 4th wall between the player and the game unlike any other and if you missed out on the original, don’t miss your chance to play this video game classic with dozens of new content this time.

Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodhunt
Finally, the vampire battle royale is here. After countless delays for the legendary Vampire: Masquerade Bloodlines’ sequel by Paradox, at least Sharkmob AB made an original and free to play battle royale game on the side. It’s a shirt above other BRs, Vampire masquerade really lets you fool around with different vampiric powers, encourages stealthy approach and whatnot. Combat is smooth, game runs very well performance wise. It has good ideas but in its current state it still has a lot to go to become a really original BR title. But who doesn’t like the dark and horrific world of Vampire: The Masquerade anyways, just give it a try since it’s free.
Release: April 27
Developer: Sharkmob AB
Launch price: Free-to-play!
