Steam bundles are not typically something I delve into, however, the LudoNarraCon and Fellow Traveller’s Story-Rich Megabundle is an exception to the rule. This bundle offers an extraordinary collection of 10 narrative-heavy games for a mere price of around £20, €23 or $25. Among these games, three stand out as exceptional pieces of digital artwork. Paradise Killer, Roadwarden, and Card Shark each bring their own unique storytelling experience and should not be missed. Let’s take a closer look at what makes them special.
Paradise Killer: An Otherworldly Adventure
If you yearn for a detective adventure like no other, Paradise Killer is the game for you. Step into the shoes of an immortal detective investigating a mass murder in a pocket universe filled with enigmatic monoliths and temples. The setting alone is enough to captivate your imagination. But the game goes beyond just a captivating environment; it offers a true sense of agency. You can accuse any character at any time, but wise players will take the time to gather clues and speak to the diverse cast of characters before settling on a suspect. The Lovecraftian ambiance, as described by Alice B, is dreamy with colors that make blood spatter truly pop, adding an extra layer of allure to an already intriguing game.
Roadwarden is a text-based RPG that stands in a league of its own. The game presents itself like a storybook adorned with marvelous illustrations. You take on the role of a roadwarden tasked with exploring and restoring the paths of a wilderness province while helping the villages along the way. It is an immersive fantasy game that will leave you enchanted. Jay, rest in peace, was also impressed by the game’s unique approach and craftsmanship. Roadwarden is a testament to the fact that visuals are not always necessary to create an immersive and enjoyable gaming experience.
Prepare to embark on a jolly period escapade with Card Shark, a game developed by Nerial, the creators of Reigns. Set in 18th-century France, this game is reminiscent of WarioWare, but instead of minigames, you engage in cunning card tricks. As an associate of the renowned rambling swindler, the Comte de Saint-Germain, you role-play as his manservant to dupe foolish nobles. Alice B describes Card Shark as a “collection of cheat ’em up mini-games that’s clever, beautiful, and stylish.” It is a game that demands your undivided attention until the very end.
The LudoNarraCon and Fellow Traveller’s Story-Rich Megabundle doesn’t stop at these three extraordinary games. It also includes a variety of other titles that offer their own unique narratives and experiences.
No Longer Home, for instance, combines monsters with adult fears to create a truly immersive experience. Yes, Your Grace, despite its slightly disappointing ending, manages to captivate the player throughout the journey. Wytchwood takes players on a dark fantasy fairy-tale to-do list, fully embracing its premise and injecting a sense of fun into the game. Glitchhikers: The Spaces Between, on the other hand, fails to leave a lasting impression due to its uninteresting conversations, interrupting an otherwise beautiful walk through weird spaces. King of the Castle offers a fun and engaging “Game of Phones” experience, perfect for social gatherings. Behind The Frame: The Finest Scenery creates a short yet sweet experience for players to immerse themselves in. Finally, Before Your Eyes offers a unique gameplay mechanic that is enhanced even further if you happen to suffer from hayfever.
