I'm a very laid back sort of fellow. But that doesn't mean I won't speak my mind and fight for what I believe in.

So if you're like me, you haven't heard anything about Dreamkiller or Machinarium. Well, they're both video games, and they're both on Steam. I'll tackle them one at a time.

Dreamkiller, developed by Mindware Studios, revolves around a young lady by the name of Alice Drake, who has the supernatural ability to inhabit your unconscious mind and kill off the demons that haunt your dreams. Points for originality, awarded. The trailer reminds me of Bioshock, with the player shown using both firearms and psychic powers to thwart their foes. The full game will be released on October 12th, and if you pre-order you can save three bucks off of the original price of $29.99.

Machinarium looks promising. It's a simple game designed in Flash, involving cute little robots and what-not. From what I played in the demo, I liked it. The game has you focus on getting to the next screen by solving the puzzle in the current one. Rinse, wash and repeat. Quite a break from all the first person shooters I've played of late. Rest assured, if you enjoy adventure games, you'll like Machinarium. You can pick up this little gem for $14.99 (that's 25% off) if you pre-order it.

What do you think? Can these lesser-known games stand up against the onslaught of console prizes coming out this holiday season and next Spring? Or are they doomed to flop?
