Moonlighter is a rogue-lite game about Will, a shopkeeper that dreams of becoming a hero.
To make a living, he needs to venture into the dungeons near his town, defeat strange enemies and loot items he can sell at his shop. Managing the gold from those sales wisely is the only way he’ll get strong enough to open the last dungeon.
Moonlighter has infinite randomly generated dungeons, many cool and expensive items, lots of weapons, five tough bosses, tones of gold and dozens of weird enemies. You start with some cheap equipment. And a shop.
The game will be available on Steam (PC, MAC & Linux) first and then, hopefully, the developer is planning to offer it on the digital stores of PlayStation 4 and XBOX ONE.
Here is the official Moonlighter pre-alpha teaser trailer:

Goo Saga is a high quality, story-driven, platform adventure game where the main character Goo (a cute elastic ball creature) created by a genius scientist in a secret underwater laboratory, sets out on a journey to find his creator and uncover his secrets.
The game is developed for mobile platforms (Android, iOS) but we are also working on an enhanced version for the PC (that we hope to get on Steam through the Green-light process).
What makes the game stand out from other platformers is Goo’s elastic properties and the fact that the player can change it’s elasticity to face different situations.
