Let's get on with it!
Inua : A Story in Ice and Time
Time travel, a mysterious investigation, and mythical polar bears - what's not to like about Inua - A Story in Ice and Time? In this gorgeous-looking adventure game, players will journey to the Canadian Far North and point and click their way throughout the past and the present.
You'll step into the shoes of present-day reporter Taïna and experience your story intertwine with a filmmaker named Peter. Your tale will also overlap with Simon, who's surprisingly from the historical Franklin expedition. You'll have mystical encounters with mythical polar bear Nanurluk too, moving from past to present and vice versa to uncover the truth.
Dubbed as an "existential action game", Mourning Star lets players take control of the last star in a universe that's doomed to die. You supposedly have the power to restore everything back to its former glory - plus, you'll get to explore beautiful constellations along the way and discover each one's unique Science Fiction parable.
The Hard mode will put your skills to the test, while the Story mode will let you enjoy the narrative of the game undisturbed.
My Hero Ultra Impact
As the latest mobile game based on the My Hero Academia franchise, MY HERO ULTRA IMPACT lets you experience BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Inc.'s popular IP on mobile via a Quirk-filled action title.
You can collect your favourite heroes from the franchise and use them to engage in casual 3-on-3 Quirk battles. You'll build combo chains and unleash your epic skills as dynamic animation sequences play out to make sure that each new blow against your opponents is as satisfying as the last.
HyperBeard Inc.'s adorable home deco sim is as wholesome as it gets. You'll build your very own house and create a new life for yourself in this pastel-coloured world filled with loved ones, cutesy furniture, and cuddly pets. You can customise each room to your liking, meet someone special, fall in love, and build a home together from the palm of your hand.
The slice-of-life game also features a diverse cast of characters you can create a life with - the art is so charming that it really does make you forget your own worries IRL.
Tinker Island 2
The tropical adventure game returns with Tinker Island 2, letting players pick a side to survive in a deserted island (while fending off aliens to boot). There are intriguing riddles to solve, battles to win, and mysteries to uncover as you help out the island's warring factions with quests for cool rewards.
There are also over fifty locations to discover, with an easy-to-control battle interface you can take advantage of as you level up your crew and upgrade your dwellings in this charming free-to-play game.
