Steam in August – These games must be on the wishlist

The game library is already full again and yet we can not stop. The one game surely fits somehow into the shelf. Or? Clear. Is yes digital. In order to keep you up to date on the upcoming games, I will introduce you to the potential candidates who may have earned a place in your collection every month, but not to be played. Main thing. 

I accept no guarantee for completeness. Certainly I have overlooked one or the other highlight. I am glad about your suggestions, which I should perhaps take a closer look under the magnifying glass. The main focus here is on games, which appear exclusively on Steam.

Not only small, but of course also more well-known titles will see the light of the world this month.For example, Tacoma , which was already published on August 2, and takes us to a mysterious space station where we simulate running. Or The Escapists 2 , which will be released on August 22nd, and this time, even with our friends, the perfection of the out-of-prison. From the 8th of August, we can again explore the abysses of the human psyche and accompany protagonist Senua on her journey through the inner darkness when Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice conquers the digital shelves . Do you like to hide from your creepy neighbors? Fine. This can be in the Stealth Horror Hello Neighbor also, when it finally finally on the 29th of August appears . And if you want to do a bit more quiet after all the stress, you’ll have a great soundtrack, a story that’s probably touching on you, and all sorts of important decisions when you slip into the role of Chloe in Life is Strange: Before the Storm ,

Away from the mainstream, there are again some pearls that one might have overlooked in the mass of new releases. Mouse finger in position. Wish list.
