Steam Discovery Queue - Crusade of the Free III

Continuing freebies from last time... the one in bold is the best of this set.

Digital Expo Center: Not a game, but a really cool idea. If this continually updates it might be worth looking into, but I'm not sure if that's the case. It did get me to checkout whatever "Wanted Racoon" is though! Lol!

Game for Anna: A "horror" click adventure featuring many dolls that makes heavy use of photographs and nonsensical logic. Bleh. Maybe Anna would get it, because I sure didn't.

Geadows: Generic future shooter with generic guns and baddies, whom you fight in stages and get upgrades in between. The graphics do it no favors and neither do the holes in the floor that let you fall off the map and never die. Bleh.

Obscura: First person platform puzzler where items only exist to stand on if you view them from a camera, which in theory is interesting since you need to keep looking at an item to stand on it. In practice, having a camera "window" in addition to the regular view is just freaking annoying. Bleh.

Paint Chips: An incredibly messy pixel PvP game where all your weapons are paint related and killing an enemy player (or bot since no one was playing it while I was on) "chips" them. Bleh.

The Shape of Time: Not a game, this virtual gallery features the works of a French artist who put a lot of thought into his interactive time sculptures. I very much enjoyed this one, and bonus points for some capoeira in there. Definitely worth a look.

More interesting that I initially thought.

Sheepy: Cute platformer where you are a sheep hopping over haybales to the light tunes of a lullably. Zzzzzzz.

Slow and Steady: Classic tortoise versus the hare with nice graphics. You are the tortoise, and you need to button mash per step...!? Stupid.

Survival Horror #8,436: Yep, there's a lot of shitty survival horrors on steam - heaps being variations of Slenderman (or insert whatever monster) the Eight Pages (or whatever you are collecting, still usually pages "but now with Hentai"). This one you need firewood and a lighter to signal for help, which makes more logical sense - and the lake setting gives a nice circular area to run around. Only problem? You need to pick up food cubes too or risk instantly dying from hunger. Yep I didn't even get to see if there was a monster here, and with no option to skip the "tutorial" mission - screw that.

Tanks the Crusades: Simple top down tank combat, where tank shells ricochet off walls (and can kill you too in one hit). Some variation too where different colored tanks behave differently. More a puzzle game but the chill music track doesn't really mesh well for me.
