Ride your music.
Audiosurf is a music-adapting puzzle racer where you use your own music to create your own experience. The shape, the speed, and the mood of each ride is determined by the song you choose. You earn points for clustering together blocks of the same color on the highway, and compete with others on the internet for the high score on your favorite songs.
Audiosurf on Steam includes The Orange Box soundtrack, integrated with the game to enable "Still Alive" surfing and more. In addition, Audiosurf is one of the first titles to leverage Steamworks, offering full support for the Steam Achievements that appear on Steam Community profile pages.
- Play with any music from your own collection--the game supports MP3s, iTunes M4As, WMAs, CDs and OGGs
- Valve's The Orange Box Original Soundtrack is included.
- Online scoreboards for each song you play.
- Choose your strategy from 14 available characters.
- Track your progress as Steam Achievements.
After much research, I have decided that this is TOO good of a deal to pass up. Atom Zombie Smasher is a game in which you take command of a group of mercenaries in order to evacuate your city before the civilians become a tasty snack to the undead. Conduct massive rescue operations using snipers, artillery crews, orbital bombardments, and more. The environments are fully-destructible and randomly generated. When you need a break from fending off zombies, you can create your own game mods and share them with your friends. Here are some of the Key Features of the game taken from it's Steam store page:
Mercenaries for hire: Hire and upgrade your ragtag group of snipers, demolition teams, orbital bombardment crews, and more.
No two cities are the same: Cities are procedurally-generated, giving a unique experience with each playthrough.
Destructible environments: You can absolutely blow up everything.
Play with friends: Up to three people can cooperatively play together.
Mod support: Modify the game rules however you like, and share your mods through the Online File Share.
To be honest, I am really excited about this game. Hopefully I can get it before it goes off sale. Just to boot here are some screenshots and a comment from indiegames.com. Click the pictures to enlarge.
"What happens when one of the most exciting indie developers of the moment takes a shot at the zombie survival genre? Atom Zombie Smasher, that's what."
