Five Steam Games to Watch for in April

Solarix by Pulsetense Games

A science-fiction horror-stealth game that reminds me a lot of Alien: Resurrection but heaped with crazy. Check out the trailer to see what I mean:

In essence, you are the lone human survivor of a medical experiment gone wrong and your only companion is a mad AI. Avoid your monstrous former teammates, the clean up crew sent to dispose of the evidence (i.e. you) and make your way to freedom.

The developers say that their "goal is to go beyond jumpscares and cheap thrills. Solarix is about a world that overpowers you with unease, insecurity, and desperation, forcing you to confront your own role in the horrors to come." Solarix promises massive, detailed levels and open-ended gameplay. 

I'm not sure how the mixture of classic adventure puzzles will work with stealth, but the game certainly seems to have a menacing atmosphere. I'm looking forward to the option of using both weapons or hacking tools to overcome obstacles.

Solarix is due to release for Windows on Steam on April 30. A future release on Xbox is also a potential.
