one of the best roguelikes ever made , to me its a mix of classic rogues and something like WOW offline
you can get it for free on the dev page (old version?) or get heavily discounted with expansions all the time on steam
can be played with mouse and few keyboard keys , simple controls not a full keyboard rogue
Game in which you are the manager of a gladiator ludus (ludus is kinda a school).
So you gotta buy or enslave people and train them for becomming gladiators, you gotta manage trainning, food, water, wine, build stuff for upgrading the ludus, buy and upgrade equipment.
The game is a punishing roguelike with a lot of adult humor where you gotta build your way to the top.
There’s so many funny stuff, for example you can build walls!
You can ask why build walls?
So your slaves don’t run away!
You can build a private quarters for your chamption, otherwise the managers from opposing ludus could assassinate him.
Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord is a strategy/action role-playing game. The fundamental gameplay premise is the same as previous entries in the series: the player builds up a party of soldiers and performs quests on an overhead campaign map, with battles being played out on battlefields that allow the player to personally engage in combat alongside their troops. Bannerlord, however, includes significant improvements to numerous elements of gameplay.
On its early access release, Bannerlord became the largest launch of the year to that point on Steam, achieving more than 170,000 concurrent players.

One of my favourite games, the stories, worldbuilding and characters are great in this game. You really feel like you get to know the other characters in this game and I had a lot of fun playing through this game, multiple times.
If you like open world single player games like Skyrim (which I enjoyed too) I really recommend this game. While Skyrim gave a lot character choices (here you’re stuck with one choice of character: Geralt of Rivia) I feel like I cannot play Skyrim again after playing the Witcher without missing how much more lively NPCs in the Witcher felt to me.
(Single player open world choices matter story driven gameplay.)

I have barely touched the surface of that game, but when I did touch the surface of the Mun I was trying to land on, I realised late that landing in the dark with just sea level as reference was not a flawless idea when some parts of the Mun happen to be above sealevel. Needless to say, I touched the Mun a bit too hard.
The objective was to fly around the expansive universe as a trader, hauling stuff around to make a profit. You could land on planets, get into fights, etc. You were even required to sleep, otherwise you would pass out at inopportune times. Here is the space navigation panel:

You can check my Steam Curator page for a couple dozen of these. Due to the format these are very short opinion pieces. Haven’t written a new one since some time but probably you can find something of use still.
The featured items show four screenshots but the rest have no pictures associated with them.
You can also check my Steam Reviews. Only one over a dozen of these but usually are longer in length.
