What PC games releasing this year have gone completely under the radar?

I'm going to mention Aquanox: Deep Descent. It's a revival of a once popular IP that some of you may remember and set to release end of December but seems to be far away from anyone's radar. What other games have been overlooked/under hyped that many might not be aware of?

I sound like a broken record as this point but I'm so deep in my existing library of games (a backlog, some might cynically call it) that the next game on my radar might be the original Aquanox (and it's sequel, both in my library, both unplayed since purchase) :D.

For me it was Ancestors the Human Kind Odyssey. I was looking through Steam one day and saw it, but it wasn’t going to be released till 2020. So I did some research on it and most of the reviews sucked, but it was such an intriguing concept, something I always wanted to play as a Civ type game. Anyway I found that it was on Epic and bought it. It’s a bit repetitive, but unlike no other game I played before. Prior to this I never even heard a peep about it.

I dont think anything has gone COMPLETELY under the RADAR, but Bloodstained didnt get enough attention considering how good it is.
Also nobody is talking about Subnautica Below Zero even though its looking pretty good.

I'm looking forward to buying Bloodstained once it's cheaper (and my backlog has cleared out a little).

We all forgot about Control because it was an Epic exclusive, but looked like a cool game.

Everyone should check out Overload when they got the time, it's a spiritual successor to Descent that was done on a low budget off kickstarter.

It didn't get a lot of attention because it's technically not finished. IGA is still adding to the game and basically released a finished early access version and is slowly adding the rest of the stuff later. It's an outstanding game and any Castlevania Symphony of the Night fans are missing out if they haven't played it (it's essentially the sequel we've always asked for), but again, it's not finished so it's fairly short. I think I got 100% in about 10 hours on the PS4 and that was before the major changes were put in place like the Rhava Bural nerf.
