Capcom a few months ago announced Exoprimal. Dinosaurs are falling from the sky and only you can save humanity or something. From the brief video below it looks a bit like EDF but with dinosaurs. Looks promising. Due out next year.
Made by the same people who made steamworld. I never played steamworld. I’ve played about an hour of it, with plans to continue. It’s decent enough, you wonder around hoovering up the titular gunk with your glove to make the world shiny again and solving environmental puzzles and some basic combat (so far, anyway) I’ve definitely done this sort of thing in loads of games before, clearing out corruption to tidy things up or return colour to the world. Fortunately the hoovering is quite nice and there’s a lot of chatter to keep you invested in the mystery surrounding the gunk and the inevitable arguments the character you control and her friend - who fills the guy in the chair trope - are going to end up having. The one you control is happy and eager for adventure, the other went to the same charm school the pilot from Halo Infinite graduated from. It looks quite lovely in places but clearly a bit budget, they’ve skimped a bit on animations (especially the lip sync, which is practically non-existent) and some of the NPC’s. The characters look really ugly, too. Sort of Pixar if they all grew up in Chernobyl. It’s on gamepass so free! (But not really). It’s picked up a few very enthusiastic reviews and quite a few middling ones. Your enjoyment from it is going to be based on how much you like cartoony sci fi and hoovering things up. https://www.purexbox.com/news/2021/12/roundup-heres-what-the-critics-are-saying-about-the-gunk
