Niche Early Access – Neon Noodles, WRATH: Aeon of Ruin, and More

This is Niche Early Access. In this column, we regularly showcase various promising games that are currently in some form of early access or development, and haven’t reached full release. Please let us know if there’s a game you want us to showcase!

I’m back with another batch of promising games that recently entered Steam Early Access. Even if you don’t like buying titles that are still in Early Access, remember to wishlist any games that catch your attention so you’ll be notified when they get a full release.

Here’s 5 new Early Access games that might be worth checking out:

Developer: Worldwalker Games
Platforms: Windows PC, Mac, Linux
Price: $19.99

First up this week is Wildermyth, a procedurally generated, narrative-driven tactical RPG. The game invites you to craft your own myths and folklore by recruiting a ramshackle band of farmers and civilians and molding them into heroes of legend. As your heroes grow, they can gain powerful abilities, become cursed or maimed, form strong bonds between each other, or heroically sacrifice themselves to save the rest of the party. If you’d like to know more, we did a preview that you can find here.

Wildermyth will remain in Early Access for somewhere between six months to a year.
