    Going Live-ss_3481b58d66dd9762ae88a8fbbae250972413e2e3-1920x1080-jpg
    Well, I'm going through all the games that I have in my steam list, picking out the lesser known tittles and giving them a go. So many games we pass over because we have never heard of them, or they are not from a major developer. There are some good ones out there, and I would like to share the love (plus i need some other people to get them so i can play multiplayer!).


    First on my list:
    Sol Survivor



    Sol Survivor is a fantastic multiplayer tower defense game. Aside from the single player, it really shines with its other modes; like fighting wave after wave until you can't go on any longer with survival mode, or hopping online and playing head to head or co-op with fellow steam friends.

    The one thing that hooked me was the fact that you can actually choose different characters, who all have different tower compliments and orbital strikes. Tie that alongside 6 player online maps and it makes for some pretty intense teamplay (or competition). Overall I was surprised, I never thought I could sink so much time into a tower defense game.

    It's a cheap indie game on steam ($9.99), and I recommend you check it out. Just as graverunner, walkerxes, blakeman, stormywaters and a few more who have taken that leap of faith; I'm sure they will tell you the same.

      Howlin is correct.. this is a badass game, made better by the character diversity and the teamwork and tactics available.

      Great game and worth more than the $9.99 they want for it. It is one of those games that has a hidden replay value that you might not see at first.

      haha it might even have hidden playability you might not see at first. if you try the single player, and think you don't like it, look me, Howlin, Blakeman, bobbarkerissatan, gatita_andy, Stormywaters and Graverunner up and join us in some coop multiplayer. It will change your mind.

      By the way, Blake... Howlin and I were unsuccessful yesterday with our vendetta against Crucible. Still haven't beat it. :/

      Sol Survivor is good stuff, super fun. I've been in some awesome games of TF2 and simply dropped out because someone says "Sol Survivor?"

      We will get it eventually, I think we just need to figure out if we need to gangpile one area of the path or have certain folks at key points.

      Sigh... I went to buy it. But I don't remember my steam password. So I logged out of steam to go through the retrieve account info rigamarole... only to find out I have no idea about the answer to the secret question either. So now I'm locked outta my steam account for the time being as well. Oh well... I didn't want to play anything tonight anyway. Steam support ticket open.

      I might pick this up.

      Is it comparable to Defense Grid or Cursed Treasure? Or is Sol Survivor its own animal?

      lessee if you can beat Howlin, or better, Toto (random Sol Survivor buddy) in Survival mode..

      That's my one dissapointment with the game... No Co-op survival mode

      added howlin.... I'm gonna finish the campaign before I go challenging someone tho.

      FINALLY lost a single soul on something like map 3 or 4 of the second world. Playing on normal difficulty.
