GFN Thursday is all about bringing games powered by GeForce NOW’s GPUs in the cloud to gamers. Today, that spotlight shines on Team17, the prolific publisher behind many games in the GeForce NOW library.
The party gets started with their newest release, a day-and-date launch of Sheltered 2, streaming on the cloud alongside the 12 additions to the GeForce NOW library this week. Team17 joins the free game fun with The Escapists, free to claim on the Epic Games Store from Sept. 23-30.
We also look at a number of their greatest hits that members can stream today.
A Bit of Everything, All of the Time
With 30 years of experience making video games, Team17 has seen it all in PC gaming. From releasing hits like the Worms franchise and the Overcooked series to helping new indie developers bring their unique creations to players around the world, the publisher has shown that fearless experimentation can lead to awesome outcomes and a whole lot of great gaming.
Bringing Team17’s diverse collection to GeForce NOW makes for an easy win for gamers everywhere.
“GeForce NOW lets us share our passion for games as well as our independent spirit with more players than ever,” said Harley Homewood, head of sales at Team17. “Players can experience our diverse collection of games, streaming on GeForce NOW, even across their low-powered devices with the power of a full gaming rig.”
With today’s launch of Sheltered 2 (Steam) — which joins recent releases like Honey, I Joined a Cult (Steam) and Hell Let Loose (Steam) — streaming alongside other Team17 games, there’s something for everyone, ready to play across all GeForce NOW compatible devices.
Here are some great suggestions from the Team17 catalog to help kick off the weekend fun.
Gimme Shelter, and So Much More
Take a trip to a post-apocalyptic world in the survival sim, Sheltered 2 (Steam) which launched on GeForce NOW this week. Become a leader and build up your own faction of survivors. Tackle dangers like starvation, dehydration and radiation poisoning by managing your resources as well as threats from your fellow humans when exploring and withstanding the wasteland.
Want to lead, but in a more light-hearted way? Check out Honey, I Joined a Cult (Steam) and try your hand at building your own following. For family fun, battle it out in Worms Rumble to see who’s the last worm standing. And the kitchen gets heated with a little chaotic competition in Overcooked (Steam) and the hit sequel Overcooked! 2 (Steam).
Take combat to a whole new scale by fighting in some of the most iconic World War II battles in the first-person shooter Hell Let Loose (Steam). Go in guns blazing in the frantically fast Neon Abyss (Steam). Or hack ’n’ slash your way through a nightmare world in the brutal Blasphemous (Steam).
If you can dream it, you can build it in the crafty building game Main Assembly (Steam). Make a great escape playing The Escapists 2 (Steam) and The Escapists — available on Steam and free to claim on the Epic Games Store from Sept. 23-30.
