What’s your paranoid next-door neighbor hiding in his basement? Is he a killer, a kidnapper, a real monster, or something more innocuous that your mind might be blowing out of proportion? Sneak around his house to find out, but make sure he never sees you!
Join the Republic or the Empire for five-on-five Star Wars space battles. Can you maintain the victory won on Endor, or does avenging Palpatine in a TIE fighter sound like more fun? Choose and customize your vehicle, and may the Force — light side or dark — be with you.
“Play solo, or team up with up to four friends to fight through hordes of monsters, unlock new loot, and find a way to escape the planet.” Kill aliens and find the teleporters to get to the next level and ultimately, offworld.
Numerous expensive, special-edition versions of Celeste abound. Save money — a lot of it — by going with the digital code. Simply jump, air-dash, and climb through a massive mountain full of secrets, where death awaits at every turn. The 2D platforming requires no special skills to learn, but the journey will be a tough one to master.
The game that describes itself as “tough but fair” — see if you agree! Take control of a failed alchemic experiment on a mysterious, ever-changing island. Unlock weapons, spells, and special abilities to master this world’s 2D combat.
Travel through a vast and dangerous world to find a cure for a deadly illness. And no, it’s not the modern United States, but somewhere a good deal more escapist. Fans compare Hyper Light Drifter to classic Zelda games, so if that kind of linkage sounds fun, go for it.
Jump, punch and use your body to maneuver through VR environments as Astro, the robot captain of a spaceship searching for his crew across five worlds. He’s pretty darn cute, but will need crazy skills to survive 26 levels.
If Blade Runner‘s Replicants fought the Matrix, who would win? In a world governed by machines, the human resistance sends in androids to do battle. “Switch between using melee and ranged attacks in battle against hordes of enemies and challenging bosses across a variety of open field maps.” Play is designed to be accessible to all skill levels, and this version of the game includes all DLC and bonus content.
The Messenger – PC
Visit Paris’ Louvre museum during four different time periods in order to find four cursed objects before an evil cult does. Trips to go look at old things take on a whole new level of excitement when the goal becomes preventing Armageddon.
A new Ice Age has struck the world in a parallel 19th century, and it’s not the fun kind with Ray Romano and Denis Leary. Take charge of a steampunk society in a world where heat means life, and see what kind of difficult choices need to be made to keep things running.
