Developed by Omega Force and based off one of the most popular dark fantasy mangas, Berserk and the Band of the Hawk follows Guts as he slashes his way through a world torn apart by war and demons. The game implements both segments of anime and rendered cut scenes to bring the world of Berserk to life.

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands: War Within the Cartel is a short film by Ubisoft, now available exclusively at Amazon Prime Video, that serves as the precursor to the forthcoming game Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands, the tenth installment in the franchise. The film follows Ricky Sandoval, an undercover agent who is working to take down the Bolivian cartel from the inside and prevent their operations from going global.
Developed by Stormcloud Games and published by Rising Star Games, a self-professed “re-imagining of the classic ASCII dungeon crawler”, Brut@l allows players to select from four different classes to combat twenty-six levels, featuring a multitude of enemies.
Toby: The Secret Mine is a 2D adventure game by Headup Games with various points of puzzle solving and platforming. If you enjoy games, like Limbo or Inside, then you may want to try your hand at this game and see for yourself.
Semispheres by developer Vivid Helix is a 2D puzzle game that applies the concept of split-screen to a smart, fun, and relaxing experience. Each level splits your computer screen in half, with one of your “semispheres” on the left side and the other on the right. If you are using keyboard controls, the WASD keys control the left semisphere and the arrow keys control the right semisphere. (You can also play with a controller, which is what the game recommends and what I used. Each joystick controls its respective semisphere with this control scheme.)
Alone With You developed by Benjamin Rivers Inc. is a sci-fi romance adventure game that definitely plays the part. (In this game, pixel graphics set the art style along with incorporating this title in the indie genre.)
A story-driven survival horror game, Uncanny Valley by developer Cowardly Creations centers around a pixelated world, in which you must explore a mysterious facility and uncover its secrets, before your own past catches up with you.
Strategy games are one of kind, always interesting and something new even though we play the same maps repeatedly. But it is more fun when you have multiple different and challenging maps to play from. Developed by Blowfish Studios, Siegecraft Commander is an interesting and an amusing strategy game. I was kind of surprised when I saw the gameplay which tempted me to play this game.
An indie game that began as an Indiegogo campaign by developer Radical Phi, Angels with Scaly Wings describes itself as “The Dragon Dating, Mystery & Drama Visual Novel.” This takes a unique turn away from the traditional dating simulators by incorporating elements of mystery and drama aligning more with a choose-your-own adventure. Although the gameplay essentially consists of selecting options from a text box, this does not in any way take away from the excitement created by making decisions that can dramatically alter the storyline and the fate of your character. It is also worth noting that there are a few puzzles in the game, which are entertaining yet simple. The soundtrack offers some variety and is reminiscent of standard video game ambience with a few sound bites that bring the action to life.
Mr. Shifty is a thrilling and fast paced top-down action adventure game developed by Team Shifty and published by tinyBuild GAMES. Mr. Shifty is set to be released sometime in the second quarter of 2017 and I cannot express how much I enjoyed playing the beta and how much I look forward to what the developers do with this game going forward. (Also I would second the developer’s recommendation and use a console controller when playing this game.)
