Designed to be played like an authentic around the table, pen and paper Dungeons and Dragons adventure, Solasta Crown of the Magister is an amazingly fun role-playing experience even as it continues to develop through Steam Early Access. It’s a critical hit for RPGing adventure.
Partisans 1941 is one of the newer generation of real-time, small unit tactics stealth games where your outnumbered squad must sneak around and carefully overcome overwhelming odds.

Picklock is a pixel-based, strategic thief simulator that will have you stealing everything that’s not nailed down from the till of cash registers to the toilet paper in your target’s bathroom. It offers pretty good gameplay for not much money.
