Deathgarden: Bloodharvest halts development, is now free to play

Deathgarden, which may be the most wonderfully pure videogame title since Bonestorm, launched into Steam Early Access last year, and it looked really promising: We called it a "weird, exhilarating game of lethal hide-and-seek" in our August 2018 preview.

The Quake-powered shooter Wrath: Aeon of Ruin is live on Steam and it's really good

After missing the anticipated summer 2019 release date we were told about back in March, the "bloody Quake revival" Wrath: Aeon of Ruin is now available on Steam Early Access. There's still a long way to go—the development roadmap lays out plans for three content updates prior to full release next year—but I've put a couple of hours into it, and even in its pre-release state it is very good.
