Kingdom Come: Deliverance – Set in 15th century Europe during a time of civil war, this crowdfunded open-world first-person RPG makes a lot of big promises: freedom of character, multiple approaches to meaningful open-ended quests, NPCs with realistic AI behavior, and realistic combat with detailed multi-layer armor and melee physics, among other things. Some of them are promises we’ve seen made and half-fulfilled in prior games, so it will be interesting to see if the final product lives up to the hype.

Mafia III – The next chapter in the Mafia franchise flips the expectations of its title to question the very definition of family – or should that befamiglia? Set in New Orleans in the late 60s and featuring a bi-racial Vietnam vet as the main protagonist, it pits the player and his mismatched crew, the remnants of his adoptive black crime family and other friends (including a recurring character from Mafia II), against the traditional mob establishment in a fight for territory and revenge.

Uncharted 4 – After the loss of creative staff and voice talent delayed its 2015 release, the fourth and final installment in the Uncharted series and the grand finale for it’s main character is now soon to arrive. Uncharted 4 sends Nathan Drake to Madagascar in search of legendary pirate treasures alongside his long-lost brother, and includes other notable characters from the franchise. While the game doesn’t offer any major innovations, it promises more of its well-established formula for third-person action, gunplay, and platforming, all on an even bigger scale, with large and highly destructible environments.

Horizon: Zero Dawn – This action-RPG is set in a post-apocalyptic world a thousand years in the future, where humanity has been reduced to living in tribal bands while robotic dinosaurs rule the planet, which alone sounds pretty cool. Mixing the primitive and advanced in its survivalist premise, the game’s minimal  UI and lack of tutorial promotes immersion in the setting and encourages a ‘trial and error’ approach.  As the huntress Aloy, the player uses a bow, ‘rope caster’, or other crafted weapons and traps to exploit the weaknesses of more advanced foes and scavenge them for parts to make yet more inventive weapons.

Quantum Break  – A third person shooter with some platform elements, Quantum Break takes a science experiment gone-wrong as the basis for a game where the protagonist controls time itself. These powers allow the player to dodge, redirect projectiles, and so on, and will also figure into some of the movement-based puzzles. The game’s most noteworthy feature is not in its mechanics, however, but rather in short live-action episodes that will alternate with play and expand the narrative. While gameplay focuses on the protagonist, these will follow the antagonists, with various decision points for each side affecting the overall story.

ReCore – From the legendary Keiji Inafune (Mega Man, Onimusha, Lost Planet, Dead Rising) and Mark Pacini (director, Metroid Prime series), ReCore is an action-adventure game that also features a post apocalyptic world and robots. And I am absolutely OK with these things. Using a grapple weapon that can remove the namesake energy cores from enemy robots, the protagonist must recruit human and artificial allies alike in her quest to save mankind.

XCOM 2 – The 2012 XCOM reboot was hailed as a worthy, or even miraculous successor to the original (circa 1994) and much beloved  X-Com/UFO, following the specter of many failed and canceled games in the franchise. This sequel to the relaunch follows most of the same formula although it adds some new elements, like stealth, looting, and greater character customization, as well as expanding the story of the prior games, albeit in a challenging direction.

Detroit: Become Human – Growing from the jaw-dropping “Kara” technology demo in 2012, Quantic Dream is clearly looking to push hardware limits with this upcoming title, a game appropriately about the limits of technology itself. Set in a futuristic Detroit that has recovered economically by producing lifelike service androids, the game takes up the tradition of Isaac Asimov and Philip K Dick and questions the nature of artificial intelligence and the potential rights of artificial beings.

Scalebound – This upcoming action RPG seeks to cash in on the instant appeal of the granddaddy of fantasy icons, the dragon, and the popular trope of humans bonding with them. Drew and Thuban are the human-scaly pair in this title, with the dragon half being AI-controlled but command-able by the player. Since the thematic material isn’t exactly groundbreaking, its ultimately going to be  quality of Thuban’s AI on which the title flies or crashes, dragon pun intended. Q4 2016, exclusive to the Xbox One

Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst – The 2008 game Mirror’s Edge was one of those games that people either loved or hated. Apparently EA felt enough people loved the stylized, free-running game enough to make a new one. Catalyst, hopes to improve upon the original game’s concept with a true open world, and giving players a better understanding of the protagonist, Faith. Due out in May 2016, the prequel/reboot will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC.

Hellblade – The creators of the PlayStation 3 exclusive Heavenly Sword, have a new game in the works, called Hellblade. Borrowing from Celtic myths, the cinematic game will send players through a hellish underworld, and tackle mental health issues head-on. Some recent vertical slice feedback, and official progress tweets have created some concerns about the release date, but officially it’s still on track for PlayStation 4, and Windows PC, in 2016.

Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 – Not to be confused with the games in the Sniper Elite series, Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 is the upcoming first-person, open-world, tactical shooter offering from the Eastern European CI Games. While previous entries have had more than their fair share of flaws, a few significant gameplay innovations make the new game worth keeping an eye on.Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 is due out in Quarter 2, 2016 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC.

Dishonored 2 – Despite the original Dishonored game’s rough edges, and contradictory narrative, it certainly found an audience. Somewhat overshadowed by the Fallout 4 reveal, at Bethesda’s E3 press conference, Dishonored 2’s announcement was pretty big news on its own. The game continues the first game’s story and allows players to take on the role of a suddenly dethroned Empress Emily, in addition to the assassin Corvo. Dishonored 2 is being developed for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles, as well as Windows PCs. It is due out in the second quarter of 2016.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided – The original cyberpunk-themed, first-person, action role-playing game, Deus Ex took the gaming world by storm over 15 years ago. Not surprisingly, each iteration has been highly anticipated. The same can be said for the upcoming Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, which was announced in the spring of 2015. The game will continue the story of former Sarif Industries security manager, Adam Jensen, from the 2011 release, Human Revolution. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC on August 23, 2016.

Get Even – This new first-person action/shooter might not be on people’s radar, but it should be. Utilizing a new photo-realistic 3D scanning technology, and a multiplayer/single-player integrated system like Dark Souls, this new endeavor from the Eastern European Farm 51 is in development for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC. The developer has also announced that the game will support both Occulus Rift, and PlayStation VR. Their publisher, Bandai Namco expects to ship the game sometime in 2016.

Far Cry: Primal – Ubisoft’s Far Cry: Primal is a departure for the Far Cry series both in terms of setting and release. Due out for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on 23 February, 2016, Far Cry: Primal is breaking the pattern of typical Fall releases, for the series. In addition to its relatively quick announcement, after Far Cry 4’s release, there was some confusion as to whether or not the prehistoric themed Primal, was a full game or just a stand-alone expansion, like Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. Ubisoft has since clarified, that yes, Primal will be a full game, with a play length, and quantity of content similar to Far Cry 4.

Dark Souls III – When From Software’s unforgiving roleplaying game, Demon’s Souls released in 2009, no one expected there would be an appetite for such a demanding game. Dark Souls III, due out on 12 April, 2016, in North America, is the fourth entry in the Souls series, and the first developed exclusively for the current console generation and Windows PCs. Though, the game is expected to be very similar to its predecessor, the typical lumbering animations and movement of the series is being adjusted to more closely reflect the action in the 2015 PlayStation 4 exclusive, Bloodborne.

Ratchet and Clank – Due out in Spring 2016, exclusively for the PlayStation 4, Ratchet and Clank is a quasi-reimagining of the original PlayStation 2 game. The gameplay has been modernized, and origin stories have been tweaked, no doubt to align the franchise more closely to the upcoming film. As a matter of fact, according to Insomniac Games, the film, and the new game have been produced together. Considering the track record of movie tie-in games, expectations for the new Ratchet and Clank should probably be tempered.

Gears of War 4 – A return to Microsoft’s flagship third person shooter, Gears of War 4 is likely to be one of the most anticipated exclusives of the year. We don’t know too many details about what The Coalition has planned for the franchise, but based on the gameplay shown we know the story will follow two soldiers and that the chainsaw is back.

Coming to Xbox One | Fall 2016


Fire Emblem – Announced by Atlus in 2013, the Shin Megami Tensei, Fire Emblem collaboration still doesn’t have an official name, but Nintendo still has it penciled in for a 2016 release. The new Japanese roleplaying game is being developed by Atlus, and will feature a combination of both JRPG franchises’ characters and gameplay elements. This will undoubtedly be a must-have, console exclusive for the much maligned Nintendo WII U owners.

Coming to Nintendo Wii U2016

Battlefleet: Gothic Armada – An RTS built on Unreal Engine 4, Battlefleet Gothic: Armada draws its inspiration from the tabletop game from Games Workshop. You can take control of one of four different factions (the Chaos, Imperium, Eldar, and Orks), each with their own strengths and abilities. Ships take on compartmental damage and you have a variety of ways to inflict damage onto your opponents. While like most RTS games there is a focus on a multiplayer component, Battlefleet Gothic: Armada will feature a full-fledged single player campaign.

Coming to PC | 2016 | Official Website

Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak – It has been 13 years since we’ve seen an entrance in the Homeworld series. In that time the IP was bought by Gearbox from THQ. Deserts of Kharak is a prequel and takes place on a dying planet and a team sets out on an expedition to find a relic believed to be the solution. Whereas the previous Homeworld games took place in space, the prequel will take place on the ground in the desert and have a stronger emphasis on land and air vehicles.

Coming to PC | January 20, 2016 | Official Website

Homefront: The Revolution – Homefront didn’t do great critically or commercially when it released in 2011, and likely led to the closing of developer Kaos Studios. When publisher THQ went under, the FPS property was sold and eventually made its way to Deep Silver who gave the IP to Dambuster Studios. Homefront: The Revolution takes place in Philadelphia and follows the same premise as the original, America is being occupied by a technologically superior North Korea and players are part of a guerrilla resistance movement. However, the developers have said that aside from the name, everything else (narrative, style of gameplay, etc) will not be a continuation of the original Homefront and have promised a non-linear shooter. Based on the gameplay shown so far, the team seems to have taken a page from the Far Cry series with an open world with varying missions and objectives.

Coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC | 2016 | Official Website

Halo Wars 2 – A surprise announcement given the rather lackluster reception of the first game, Halo Wars 2 looks to continue the RTS spinoff of Microsoft’s popular FPS franchise. Details are fairly scarce as far as narrative and potential gameplay changes from the first title, but we do know Creative Assembly (responsible for the Total War series) will be heading development.

Coming to Xbox One and PC | 2016 | Official Website

Mass Effect: Andromeda – The Mass Effect trilogy was critically acclaimed on the last generation of consoles, which naturally makes Mass Effect: Andromeda one of the most anticipated titles of 2016. Unfortunately, we don’t know a lot about the game other than the fact that Commander Shepard will not be in the game. Since the game isn’t expected to launch until the tail end of 2016, expect Bioware to release more details throughout the year and make a showing at this year’s E3.

Coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC | 2016 | Official Website

Ni No Kuni II – Lauded as one of the best JRPGs in recent memory, Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch was a nice surprise when it released in 2013 for the PS3. A collaborative effort between Studio Ghibli and Level 5 studios, the game had amazing animation and strong RPG mechanics. Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom was recently announced at PSX so details are still fairly scarce but based on the trailer the game appears to continue its great art style with a new story.

Coming to PS4 | 2016 | Trailer

DOOM – One of the genre defining series for FPS games, DOOM returns to the current generation of consoles. The game removes some conventions you may expect from modern shooters; there is no reloading, ammo needs to be picked up and there are no varying speeds for your players as you are constantly sprinting. DOOM plays fast and you’ll need to move quickly to survive. Players will get a variety of weapons to work with and also be able to upgrade their characters to meet their play style, although id Software still hasn’t gone into incredible detail about this element. Based on what has been shown so far, DOOM will be going back to its gory and action packed roots.

The Last Guardian – A game long thought to have been trapped in game development limbo, Team Ico is finally bringing their follow up to the PS2 classics Ico and Shadow of the Colossus. The game features a boy and his large horned-bird-dog companion creature. The gameplay shown at E3 in 2015 showcased a similar style of platforming and puzzle solving from the previous games and will likely hit an emotional cord as well. The Last Guardian is not only a long awaited title for fans of Team Ico’s previous work, but should be on the radar of every PS4 owner.

Coming to PS4 | 2016 


Hitman – Like 2015’s Need for Speed, this classic stealth franchise is trying to rebrand itself with a new game and no subtitle. The premise remains the same. You take control of Agent 47 and are given various targets to take out. IO Interactive plans to design each mission as a sandbox giving you a variety of options in how to approach the mission from how to get to your target to how you dispose of guards.

Coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC | March 11, 2016 | Official Website

Zelda: Wii U – One of the delayed titles from last year, the new Zelda game was a highly anticipated Wii U exclusive, despite not even having an official title yet. The new game in the beloved series will be taking more of an open world approach with a seamless world that players can explore, but the core mechanics of what fans expect out of a Zelda game remain in place.

Coming to Wii U | 2016

South Park: The Fractured but Whole – A follow up to 2014’s A Stick of Truth, this South Park sequel put you back in the shoes of the new kid in town as you join forces with The Coon (Eric Cartman) and other South Park characters on an adventure to fight crime. Like its predecessor the game is structured as a turn based RPG and will absolutely emphasize the humor the show is known for.

Coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC | 2016 | Official Website

Star Fox: Zero – The other major Wii U exclusive that got delayed out of 2015, Star Fox: Zero will be putting you in the pilot seat as Fox McCloud to fight an evil empire. The game is vehicle focused with players able to take control of classic vehicles like the Airwing jet and Landmaster tank as they blast enemies. The game is also designed to give you a different view with the Wii U’s gamepad, allowing you to aim by tilting.

Coming to Wii U | April 22, 2016 | Official Website

NieR: Automata – The original Nier released in 2010 on the previous generation of consoles. Some years later, the action RPG franchise is back. Taking place after the conclusion of the first game, Earth has suddenly been invaded by mechanical life forms. A resistance force of android warriors has been created by humanity to fight back, and the game lets you take control of protagonist 2B, a female-looking android. The game’s combat looks like what you have come to expect from Platinum Games with plenty of hit combos and large enemies to take down, and many of the developers of the original Nier are aboard the new project.

Coming to PS4 | 2016 | Official Website

Final Fantasy XV – One of the most recognizable gaming franchises, Final Fantasy XV will follow the story of Noctis, a young prince and heir to the throne who needs to fight back for his kingdom. While a lot of components will likely remain the same from previous entries, developers have detailed a change in that there will be “two main threads” in regards to leveling. Traditional stat improvement will still exist , as well as action-based leveling that will act as “the enhancement of the combination attacks you can do.”

Coming to PS4 and Xbox One | 2016 | Official Website

The Banner Saga 2 – Expectations are high for the second chapter of the Banner Saga, the tactical RPG that follows a group of exiles as they fight and flee a powerful enemy. Fortunately there’s little hint that the sequel should be anything but worthy. Beautiful hand-drawn art returns for both characters and backgrounds, and we are sure to learn more about the game’s unique world and compelling story, and yes probably make a few more life or death decisions along the way. New races and classes are also on the horizon, adding some needed variety in unit types.

Coming to PS4, Xbox One, PC, Mac and Linux | Early 2016 | Official Website

RiME – A game of third person exploration, platforming, and puzzle solving on a mysterious island, RiME has drawn comparison to the PS2 classic Ico. While it’s hard to speculate on the game’s story, one that will be told without dialogue, our first glimpses of the island setting promise a game that will reward players with impressive views of unique locations that hint at the underlying narrative.

Coming to PS4 | 2016 | Official Website | Trailer

Firewatch – Set in the Wyoming wilderness in 1989 (the year after historic wildfires in Yellowstone National Park), Firewatch is an experimental game focused on the isolation of the protagonist, who has become a fire lookout to ‘get away from things’ following his divorce, and whose only link to the outside world is a handheld radio, used to speak with his female supervisor. Beginning innocuously as the player is sent to stop some campers setting off fireworks, events gradually turn toward the mysterious. And while the immersive first person 3D exploration looks a little on the primitive side, the trailer dialogue is quite engaging.

Coming to PS4, PC, Mac & Linux | February 2016 | Official Website | Trailer

Draugen – Set in Norway in the 1920s and following the mystery of a fishing village whose residents have vanished, Draugen is another upcoming game that will rely heavily on it’s setting for the heavy lifting. It’s a successful formula for first person psychological horror where  ambiance is everything, and the uniqueness of the location offers plenty. While not totally alien (players might even recognize the titular term draugen – Norse undead – from a certain popular RPG), the unfamiliar folklore and stark visuals of the surrounding fjords are a step away from more typical horror entries. The game is currently in development for PC/Mac/Linux and next-gen consoles.

Coming to PS4, Xbox One, PC, Mac & Linux | 2016 | Official Website

Routine – A psychological horror game set on an abandoned moon base, Routine’s concept is hardly unique; taking the isolation and danger inherent to space and then ramping it up with killer aliens and robots is as old as sci-fi itself. But Routine approaches the genre with an impressive environments and attention to detail, including interesting computer interactions, and a handheld device that performs multiple duties, as data interface, visual scanner, flashlight, and weapon. Plus, the trailer was pretty scary.

Coming to PC & Mac | 2016 | Official Website | Interview


The SoulKeeper – What most people know about this game so far is that it looks like Skyrim. While a fair take on the trailers and screenshots available so far for this Unreal 4-powered open-world RPG, the developers promise a large and far more diverse world, with the Norse-themed characters simply one race of many. And while a game on such a scale might seem unapproachable for an independent developer, they plan an episodic approach where characters and story arcs will be introduced and developed over time, taking player decisions as feedback along the way. Taken to the full extent, this could be pretty cool; imagine any Telltale game with the little screen that reports the percentage of player choices at large, and then imagine that completely changing later chapters.

Coming to PC | 2016 | Official Website | Interview

The Hum: Abductions – Part of the “The Hum” universe, a sci-fi world with several novels and a pen & paper RPG, The Hum: Abductions began development after plans for a larger planetary invasion game were put on hold. While the future of the parent title is uncertain, this first-person horror game approaches things on a smaller scale, telling the story of a wife and mother whose husband has mysteriously vanished, presumably as part of the larger pattern of alien abductions. Living alone with their infant child, and traumatized by the events their family has endured, the player will have to unravel the events surrounding the husband’s disappearance and contend with the possible return of his abductors – assuming it isn’t all in their head.

Prey for the Gods – This action-adventure title sets a female protagonist in a struggle for survival against godlike creatures in a savagely desolate, snowy world. Its premise blends survival elements, such as keeping warm and managing exhaustion, with massive-scale boss combat reminiscent of Shadow of the Colossus, right down to the climbable enemies.

Coming to PC & Mac | 2016 | Official Website

HOB – The newest offering from Runic Games (the people behind Torchlight) is among a number of dialogue-less narrative adventure games set to premier this coming year. Its unique cell-shaded art offers a world of lush nature mixed with overgrown industrial elements, hinting at some lost civilization and showing just how much story art can convey. There are few gameplay details, but the world looks ripe for its “multi-layer” puzzles and exploration.

Coming to PC & Consoles | 2016 | Official Website | Interview

Death’s Gambit – A side-scrolling platformer with self-described hardcore action RPG elements and some truly big bosses, Death’s Gambit looks like a strong entry in the classic Metroidvania style, complete with rope-swinging. We’ve seen a lot of indie platformers in the last year, but the trend has been toward novel puzzle mechanisms over gritty combat mechanics. Considering this game claims to be Dark Souls-hard (is that the new version of Nintendo hard?), it should be a strong entry.

Coming to PC |2016 | Official Website | Interview

XING: The Land Beyond – Taking a trip into the afterlife, XING: The Land Beyond is a first person 3D puzzle game set in the threshold between worlds. By interacting with game objects and a using few environmental powers (such as utilizing fire, rain and snow), the protagonist must overcome obstacles and uncover their own purpose and identity while aiding other spirits along the way. The developers stress that the game is meant to be enjoyable by all ages, so don’t expect a high difficulty curve or overly dark story, but rather something more casual and inspirational. Due 2016 for PC and PS4 with VR support.

P.A.M.E.L.A. –”Utopian Survival Horror” is the unusual but apt label used for P.A.M.E.L.A., a game set in a futuristic space station inspired in part by Mass Effect‘s Citadel. There’s definitely a resemblance, and the sleek setting presents a stark contrast to the visceral body horror of a game about bone-altering mutations. Apart from impressively slick graphics, it features a number of interesting concepts, including augment-based progression, an AI NPC that is part of a living network of all the station’s occupants, and a death mechanism where the player transfers to another body in the network.

Coming to PC | 2016 | Official Site | Interview


Wartile – Bringing oldschool wargaming concepts into modern media, this strategy title conjures the feeling of physical board and miniature games, with players placing and moving figurines around the map and using cards for abilities in a hybrid of real-time and turn-based strategy. The developer hopes this will make the game both more accessible and more tactical than faster-paced clickfests. Both the figurines and 3D hex-based maps are beautifully rendered with a Viking-esque art style, and Wartile should appeal to everyone from traditional RTS and TRPG players to non-computer board gamers.

Coming to PC, iOS and Android | 2016 | Official Site | Interview 

Allison Road – Another psychological horror title invested heavily in the pathos of its setting, Allison Road tasks an unnamed protagonist with unraveling the mystery of a British townhouse and its (likely former) inhabitants. While its focus on exploring the location for written notes and other clues is typical in the genre, the game gained attention for its similarity to the wildly popular (and now defunct) Silent Hill “playable teaser”, particularly for its photo-realistic environments and the main antagonist, Lily.

Consortium: The Tower  – We’ve previously spoken with the developers of this Kickstarter-backed and SOURCE engine-built first person action RPG, the second entry of the trilogy, now being developed with Unreal Engine 4. The Tower expands on the universe of the original title and introduces a newer, larger location, a tower in London in the year 2042. Similar to the predecessor, it will involve a core mission with branching choices, and allow a Deus Ex-like variety of alternate solutions, both peaceful and violent.

Everspace – A first/third person space shooter with rogue-like progression elements and boasting AAA-like visuals despite its Kickstarter pedigree, Everspace aims at providing a stunning high-action experience while also being more accessible than more in-depth space sims. Its hard to say how the procedural content will hold up in extended play, but the developers boast a variety of obstacles and approaches to overcoming them, from straight out gunfights to resource gathering and piracy, exploring nebulae and wormholes, and even cloaks and stealth.  The game is set for release in late 2016 to PC, Mac, Linux, Xbox One and possibly other systems as stretch goals are met, and will feature VR support as well.

The Solus Project – This upcoming first person sci-fi survival game follows an astronaut on a mission to save mankind, now crashed and stranded alone on the planet Gliese-6143-C. The developer, Teotl Studios emphasizes that the world itself is the threat here, and gameplay focuses on the difficulties of survival on a hostile planet with limited food and water, extreme dynamic weather, and dangerous phenomena like meteor showers, plus whatever greater mysteries the planet conceals.

Kona – An episodic narrative-driven game set in 1970s Quebec, Kona follows a private detective and veteran as he investigates a dispute between a mining magnate and the local Cree community against the backdrop of the frigid northern environment. As the player delves into this unique setting, gameplay will mix mystery staples such as exploration, puzzle-solving and evidence gathering with survival against the elements and some light action. Originally set for Q3 2015, the game will be released in four two-hour episodes starting sometime in 2016.

Unravel – Unravel is a physics-based puzzle-platform game featuring Yarny, a protagonist made appropriately out of yarn. Reminiscent of LittleBigPlanet for its whimsical style and tiny protagonist navigating human sized environments, the game’s core mechanic is fairly sophisticated: Yarny unravels as it moves, leaving behind a strand that can be tied to objects and used to solve puzzles by swinging, tightrope walking, pulling other items, etc. On top of this, the game promises an underlying story without dialogue that takes up the metaphor of the thread tying people together.

Coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC | February 2016 | Official Site

Outreach –This narrative-based game follows a Soviet cosmonaut sent to explore the titular Outreach space station after it has cut all communications with ground control.  The big draw here is the historical what-if nature of the story, as the game’s spacecraft and militarized station designs are based on real Soviet plans from the space race era. The game also promises realistic space physics, forcing the player to deal with zero-G environments as they move about.

Coming to PC and Mac | Q3 2016

ADR1FT – Another first person title in space, ADR1FT is a first person narrative-focused game in which an amnesiac astronaut explores the wreckage of a space station.  Noteworthy for avoiding actual violence, the gameplay focuses on zero-gravity navigation, oxygen supply (the player can collect tanks), and solving puzzles in  the effort to repair the station, while audio logs and other evidence may offer clues to working out what happened.  ADR1FT will be available for PC, Xbox One and PS4 in the first quarter of 2016.

Gray Dawn – Another atmospheric and setting-heavy first person horror/puzzle title, Gray Dawn takes the player to 1910 England as a priest accused of the murder of their own altar boy. A variety of religious imagery in teasers and screenshots – including some out of place for the time and place, like Hindu and Aztec symbols – suggest a complex set of religious and supernatural elements, and indeed, the main character will have to contend with demonic influence and possession that makes him doubt his own sanity.

Coming to PC | 2016 | Official Site

Seven – Described as a “Thief-inspired, 3D isometric RPG”, Seven has all the looks of something fresh and unique. From a smudgy pastel graphic style, to a post-apocalyptic game world with magi- and bio-tech alongside quaint farmhouses, the game oozes style.
