Steam users praise underrated single-player adventure, free to download now

When a fandom comes together to say something is brilliant, or if they trash-talk it to death, it’s a sign. Sometimes it’s a sign to ignore them, but today, it’s a time to listen because players of one of Steam’s underrated titles are praising it in abundance.

Outcore: Desktop Adventure might look unassuming enough, perhaps even underwhelming, yet it delivers a gaming experience that rivals many AAA games. Seriously, fans have made those kinds of comments in their reviews, like one player who said, “You know all those memes about finding a free game that is better than most AAA games and has a genuinely compelling narrative and fun gameplay? That's this game.”

After discovering a small, blonde-haired girl on your PC – as you do – you have to help Lumi recover her memories so you can both find out how she got on your desktop. In a lot of ways, this game is very meta, with its self-awareness similar to the likes of The Stanley Parable, though please only take Steam’s word for that and not mine as I’ve yet to play Outcore for myself.

Even if you don’t agree with Steam’s ‘similar games to this’ selection, there’s no doubt that Outcore is a game deserving of more public praise within the gaming industry. “This game is free, this game is amazing, this game is everything you need for a few hours of fun, entertainment and engagement. The only literal con of this game is the fact that it ends at all... I miss Lumi already!” said another on the game’s Steam page, alongside many others who miss Lumi once her story comes to an end.

If you’ve yet to play this game, with it being free to download, there’s really no excuse not to see what others are raving about. Its reviews are “overwhelmingly positive”, which is markedly better than Starfield, a game whose ratings have now dropped to “mixed” on Steam.

“This is the best 'game that interacts with your desktop' that I've ever seen. Genuinely can't believe that it's free. Please play it,” read another review. Now go, listen to those words and discover a game you didn’t realise you needed in your life. Go!
