For fans of dungeon crawling and roguelike elements of playing in procedural environments, there is the endearing Claustrophobia: The Downward Struggle and Hero Siege. They work in turn-based and real time mechanisms respectively.
In case you want to trim the fat of random gameplay, then the 2D platform adventure Path to the Sky may entice you. As you climb, environments will grow harsher, leading to your unavoidable and permanent death.
If you like voxels and big open worlds, then you’ll want Block Story. It’s not a Minecraft clone, promise. It’s more of a roleplaying thing.
Simulation needs can be met with Painters Guild, where you manage an art house in a 2D pixel environment. It bears a resemblance to Game Dev Tycoon, but with paintings.
It looks like we’re delving mostly from one pixelated pool in this batch, but we’re positive that these are the cream of the crop. Perhaps, for more shooter action, you can look to Time Rifters, where you play your own cooperative partner. It also uses voxels though, but you shoot things now.
Have a fun fact to close this off: Steam Greenlight has currently approved a whopping 467 games. Out of those games, still 290 projects have to release at some point.
