12 Greatest Steam Gems of 2023 You Might Have Missed

Man doth not live by triple-A's only, because there are even smaller games that also deserveth attention – what we call gems. Steam is a real treasure trove of them, and since we have a moment for that, we highlight its most interesting regions.

The first quarter of 2023 has ended, so we can gather the most interesting games that released during this time – and for some reason did not gain enough publicity. These are various types of productions – action, logic, strategic or multiplayer. Some deviate from generally accepted norms and conventions, others explore slightly forgotten genres, and others draw as much as they can from current trends. May the list below allow you to find a noteworthy proposition.

Meet Your Maker

Meet Your Maker, Behavior Interactive Inc., 2023 - 12 Greatest Steam Gems of 2023 You Might Have Missed - Documentary - 2023-04-21
Meet Your Maker, Behavior Interactive Inc., 2023
  1. Developer: Behavior Interactive Inc.
  2. Platforms: PC, PS5, PS4, XSX/S, XOne
  3. Release date: April 4, 2023
  4. What it is: an online action game in which we build fortresses full of traps and attack other players' objects

Meet Your Maker deserves a distinction just for the idea. The whole thing is about building fortresses in such a way as to make it difficult for other players to capture them. The more efficient we are in placing the traps, the greater the challenge will be. This is accompanied by a lot of freedom in placing the traps – though there are (let's call it) consequences that allow you to abuse certain things and make some crossings a festival of frustration. But that's how it is with games that offer so much creative freedom.

Building fortresses is half the fun. We can't go far without facing the challenges prepared by other players. In such moments, Meet Your Maker turns into an arcade shooter, and our goal is to destroy all the traps of the other person. If we succeed, we will receive a valuable reward in the form of a raw material important for the plot. In the event of a defeat, the creator of the dangerous facility will get the appropriate bonuses. So, if you think he overdid it a bit with the placement of the traps, you can look for another challenge and not give them the satisfaction. In the meantime, the creators may think about introducing a requirement to personally finish your own maps before sharing them with others.
