Steam has a Turn-Based Festival going on with some great games

By - | Views: 19,948

Love turn-based games? Well, now is your chance to stock up on a few and wishlist what might look to be some great upcoming games for you in the #TurnBasedFest on Steam.

Nowhere near as big as the Valve-run stuff directly, but these smaller events run by others are still a great way to discover some new favourites. The event runs until December 12th.

Valve still need to do better at promoting these smaller events. I often miss them completely, because they just don't actually show up anywhere on Steam that I look. Hopefully Valve will make them easier to find.

There's some absolute gems included that are on sale like:

Iratus: Lord of the Dead - 80% off

"Iratus: Lord of the Dead is a turn-based tactical roguelike RPG set in a dark fantasy universe. Lead an army of undead to help an angry necromancer in his quest to reach the surface world and bring death to the mortal realms!"

It's not on this list, but I just bought "Stolen Realm" to play with a couple of mates and even though it's turn-based, it's an absolute blast. Great customisation, fun battles, and because everyone takes their turns simultaneously, the pacing is superb. Big thumbs up from me!

I think I was put off before because the screneshots made it look/feel like a 6 player party game and that's a lot to juggle. But nope - I played it single player, party of one, and it was great. Even better in a party of three with two mates. Or mix it up and take 2 characters each. Loads of variety and the game scales accordingly.
