    Human Fall Flat 2

    Release: To be confirmed
    Platforms: To be confirmed

    Human Fall Flat 2 is the bigger, better and clumsier sequel to the puzzle platformer global sensation featuring brand new levels, customisable characters, and even wilder physics-based fun. Along with refined controls, visuals and music, Human Fall Flat 2 is a slapstick experience unlike any other! Each intricate level comes packed with new toys and devices to fiddle with as you’ll solve a range of fiendish puzzles on your own or in teams of up to eight friends.


    The Talos Principle 2

    Developers: Croteam
    Release: 2023
    Platforms:  PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X

    Set in a distant future where humankind has long been extinct, human culture lives on through interminable robots made in our image. Embarking on a quest to investigate a mysterious megastructure, you will be confronted with questions about the nature of the cosmos, faith versus reason, and the fear of repeating humankind’s mistakes.

    There will be more mind-bending puzzles, accompanied by unique new gameplay including mind transference and gravity manipulation. There’s also a deep character-driven story with multiple endings to lose yourself in, and a series of strange, stunningly beautiful environments to explore—including a city on the brink of a paradigm shift and an island holding the keys to the future.


    Wizard With A Gun (A new demo available now on Steam!)

    Developer: Galvanic Games
    Release: 2023
    Platforms:  PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X

    Craft and battle against the forces of chaos in this new demo now available on Steam. The demo starts from the beginning of your wizard’s arrival upon The Shatter – a broken world slowly being invaded by chaos. It’s up to you to adventure through this world to collect resources, build out your tower and the helpful machinations within, and push back the encroaching chaos. There is a helpful tutorial along the way, though a lot is still left to mystery and for you to discover.

    But that’s not all…
