On average, more than a dozen new games are released on Steam every day. Although we think this is a good thing, it is understandably difficult to keep up. Unless you categorize every game released on Steam, the potentially exciting gems are sure to get lost in a plethora of new gadgets. So this is exactly what we did. If there is nothing you like this week, we have collected a running list of the best PC games you can play right now and the 2021 games launched this year.
Amazing American Circus
Published: September 16th
Sale Price: $18|£13.94|AU$26.05
This is a deck building RPG, but instead of using cards to fight slimes, or using cards to fight goblins and monsters, it’s in a circus. Specifically, it was a roaming circus in the United States in the late 19th century. According to the game’s Steam description, it was “full of bizarre folklore, cruel crime, and social inequality.” In addition to card duels with 32 audience types (with the power of entertainment), you also need to manage your circus camp and cultivate your talents from the 15 available performers. This seems like a very novel take on deck builders, especially if you are tired of the canned fantasy metaphor.

This is a rare beast: a new single-player first-person shooter that doesn’t look like it was made in the 1990s. Severed Steel has an elegant artistic style, reminiscent of Superhot or Syndicate FPS (remember?), and everything is related to movement and destruction. The voxel environment is extremely destructive, with bullet time and special effects systems, and artificial intelligence is “dynamic” and “scriptless”. It has received a lot of very good reviews on Steam, and if the included level editor becomes popular, you will have a lot to think about.

In Toem, you play a cute little bug (or mouse? It’s hard to tell) with photographic eyes. This gives you the ability to solve problems and mysteries, and this is what you spend most of your time here. Toem is basically a free roaming adventure game. It takes beautiful photos of people in a peaceful monochrome town. It even seems to have a “horn” button. Frankly speaking, more games should be available. Next time you are looking for a Zen experience, you will definitely be someone in line.

Mandinga is JRPG on the surface, but its background is Brazil in the 1820s, developed by a Brazilian studio. It tells the adventures of two heroes Akil (“Muslim with diverse knowledge”) and Obadelê (“Mighty Capoerista Warrior”).
