Many games are released on Steam every day. There are so many that it is difficult to find the pearl buried in the mud.

The criteria are a Steam user rating of ‘very positive (80% positive)’ or higher, and a maximum of 1,000 concurrent users.

New games released on Steam in the third week of April often received poor reviews or were not enjoyed by many users. Only three titles, fewer than usual, received both favorable reviews and attention. When categorized by genre, one is a cooperative survival shooter and the other two are dating simulations. ‘Sker Ritual’ has been refined through a long period of early access, and many users are playing it with the official release. Both ‘Bunny Garden’ and ‘Altusica for Scoopa’ were well received for their short playtime, unique concept, and voice acting.
