Windscape is a vibrant, low-poly first person adventure game whose creator is fond of the The Legend of Zelda series, and other games that allow you to explore a rich world without annoying time pressures or overly constrictive stories. According to the game’s Steam page, he also is incorporating some elements from modern crafting/sandbox style games.

Slime-san puts you on a crazy, fast-paced platforming adventure with a very distinctive art style. Slime-san was just doing his thing, when suddenly a huge worm appeared in the previously peaceful woods and rudely gobbled him up! If you are considering getting this game on Switch, it should be noted that it has some extra content and a level editor in the Slime-san: Superslime Edition on Steam.

Bridge Constructor Portal is another game in the Bridge Constructor series, but this time with a Portal themed skin and mechanics. I’ve played this one on Steam, and unfortunately it chose to ignore what made the puzzle design in Portal and Portal 2 great. Those games were good at giving you that “Eureka!” moment when solving puzzles. Once you knew what to do, executing the solution usually wasn’t too hard. Bridge Constructor Portal doesn’t really have those eureka moments. As you get deeper into the game, the puzzles devolve into tedious piles of trial and error, involving moving parts just a little bit at a time trying to find a configuration that works.

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in his late 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES, SNES, and N64 among others. He loves Nintendo, but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks/bike rides, loves animals, and enjoys thunderstorms (and science in general).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
