Lone Survivor and Noitu Love 2: Devolution get released on Steam

Two new games this week just got launched on Steam. Lone Survivor and Noitu Love 2: Devolution each receive a respected 20% off discount on Steam dropping their price $9.99 to $7.99 on LS and $4.99 to $3.99 on NL2 until April 30th. Jasper Byrne’s Lone Survivor is an interesting survival horror game that has you take control of the protagonist who’s trying to escape from his diseased city. The game contains freaky monsters normally found in this type of game. Also the 8-bit game really sets the tone with its psychological and behavioral aspects of the protagonist. Your character is trying to survive and may need food and can’t find some; well you could pop a pill you might have lying around in your inventory, but beware in a world with unusual deformed monsters, you might just see a lot more than you wished for being drugged as well in a creepy city. Check out Lone Survivor on Steam before the discount ends. In addition, the Steam version has a new update released for the game that added some stuff and tweak with the game. The update is titled “CODENAME RED” and here are the details of the update.

  • Allows ESC to quit from the title screen or game over screen
  • Hunger increases 10% slower

  • Map hints disabled if not carrying the correct map

Now onto Joakim Sandberg’s (from Konjak) Noitu Love 2: Devolution. Like Lone Survivor, Noitu Love 2 was released the same day with a discount on Steam. The game was originally released four years ago and is just making a slightly more mainstream appearance on Valve’s ever so popular program Steam. This game unlike Lone Survivor has no tweaks or anything; it literally is the original re-release where you take control of Xoda Rap in order to save the world. The quick hack and slash game is packed with bolstering music to match what looks like chaotic shooting and dashing around. Check it out more on Steam or from the developer. If you’re not sure, check out the original Noitu Love here where you may download it and play for free.
