Upcoming January Steam

Upcoming Steam Games January 2023

Welcome! At LadiesGamers, we are all about indie games. So, aside from our Upcoming Switch Games, it’s time to look at Steam’s upcoming new release games. This one is for January 2023.

Not all games to be released are on the list here. Alternatively, you will see games that the other gaming sites don’t mention. We are taking notice of these games. You can expect reviews for many of them if given half a chance! It should be noted that unless we have some personal experience with the game, there’s a link to the descriptions on the Steam website.

Children of Silentown – January 11th

Children of silentown LadiesGamers

Children of Silentown is a dark adventure game that tells the story of Lucy, a girl growing up in a village deep in a forest inhabited by monsters. People disappearing is nothing uncommon here, but this time, Lucy is old enough to investigate on her own. Or so she thinks.

Serena reviewed Silentown and said this in her conclusion.

Children of Silentown is a beautiful, haunting game. It has a deeper meaning that is unveiled at the end. The ending can be interpreted differently depending on which of the four endings is unlocked. Even though it is a little creepy, it is not so scary that I couldn’t enjoy the game. While I wasn’t a fan of the difficult puzzles, I definitely enjoyed Lucy’s character and the story. If you enjoy point-and-click adventures with a touch of psychological horror, Children of Silentown is the game for you.

Lone Ruin – January 12th

Lone Ruin LadiesGamers

Venture into an old, magical ruin to seek an ancient power in this highly replayable roguelike twin-stick shooter. Optimise spells, build ultimate combos to defeat twisted monstrosities, and delve deeper into the Lone Ruin.

Lone Ruin is a spell-based roguelike twin-stick shooter with a focus on replayability. Play as an explorer who seeks a mysterious ancient power and ventures into a ruined magical city built atop a source of magic used by olden mages to power and transform themselves. Dive deeper and deeper, battling through twisted creatures, utilising your magic abilities to ultimately reach the centre of the Lone Ruin.

James reviewed Lone Ruin and had this to say in his conclusion. 

Lone Ruin is a decent arcade roguelike, but it did leave me wanting a bit more. With only three main boss fights and nothing to really unlock during the game, it feels a little light on content. What does save it, though, is its solid gameplay, which made me come back, repeatedly, to try out new spells and jump into some instantly satisfying action. If you’re new to the action roguelike, this is a good place to start. If you’re well versed in the genre, consider this a solid pick-up and play arcade title, just maybe not the best compared to the competition.

A Space for the Unbound – January 19th

A space for the unbound LadiesGamers

A slice-of-life adventure game with beautiful pixel art set in the late 90s rural Indonesia. That tells a story about overcoming anxiety and depression and the relationship between a boy and a girl with supernatural powers.

You’ll follow two high school sweethearts, Atma and Raya, on a journey of self-discovery at the end of their high school years. When a mysteriously supernatural power is suddenly unleashed, threatening their existence, they must explore and investigate their town to uncover hidden secrets, face the end of the world, and perhaps learn more about each other.

Serena reviewed A Space for the Unbound and gave it our highest score of two Thumbs Up.

A Space for the Unbound is a wonderful slice-of-life adventure that is sure to tug at your heartstrings and make you nostalgic for your high school days. It made me smile and cry, and any game that has the power to do that deserves nothing more than a two-thumbs up.
