Cuphead (25%) Classic run and gun game with a focus on boss battles. Inspired by cartoons from the 1930s, the visuals and audio were meticulously created using the same techniques of the era; traditional hand-drawn animations, watercolor backgrounds and original jazz recordings. Play as Cuphead or Mugman (solo or local co-op) as you travel strange worlds, acquire new weapons, learn powerful super moves and uncover hidden secrets as you try to pay back your debt to the devil!
Baldur’s gate and Baldur’s Gate II: Enhanced Editions (60%) Forced to leave your home under mysterious circumstances, you find yourself embroiled in a conflict in which the Sword Coast is on the brink of war. You will soon find that other forces are at work, far more sinister than you might have imagined. Will you be able to resist the evil in your blood and leave a dark fate that awaits you? Or will you accept your monstrous nature and ascend to divinity? Customize your hero, gather a squad of brave allies and explore the Sword Coast in search of adventure, profit and your destiny.
Runaways 2 (75%) Risk escape from the harshest prisons in the world. Explore the largest prisons with multiple floors, rooftops, vents and underground tunnels. You will have to live by prison rules, attend roll calls, do prison work, and observe strict regulations while secretly defending your claim to freedom. Your escapades from prison will take you from the frosty Tundra Fort to the train speeding through the desert, and even to the last frontier!
Pixark (75%) A huge wild world filled with evil dinosaurs, magical creatures and endless adventures! To survive in this mysterious land, you must tame cruel and cute creatures, create high-tech and magical tools and build your own base of cubes. With a robust character designer, endless voxel maps, and procedurally generated quests, your PixArk the adventure will be completely unique. Team up with friends to form a tribe, or play on your own. Take the time to build a tall fortress or go in search of a vast cave. Fly on the back of a dragon and hit enemies with your magic wand, or saddle a mighty Tyrannosaurus rex and blast your enemies with a grenade launcher. In the PixArk world, how you play is up to you – if you survive!
Survivors (60%) The island is alive! Your new home will change with the changing day and night as you explore and uncover its secrets. Hunt (or hunt) animals for food and a host of mythical enemies that aren’t necessarily happy to see you. Receive quests from the Mysterious Stranger or find them washed ashore. Get ready to venture into a procedurally generated wilderness with multiple biomes and embark on an adventure unique to each player. Are you too much intimidated about life on the island or just want to share your building experience with your friends? Survivors you covered up! Complete adventures together, collect loot, trade and ultimately survive together as you and up to three other shipwrecked explore the island paradise.
Kingdom of two crowns (30%) A minimalist, side-scrolling micro-strategy game with a beautiful modern pixel art aesthetic. Play the role of a monarch on horseback and recruit loyal subjects, build your kingdom and protect it from greedy creatures seeking to steal your coins and crown.
