Before Your Eyes
This stunning Netflix exclusive lets players blink their way across an emotional journey where you'll discover life in the afterlife with real-life blinks. The unique mechanic gives players full control over the story, as they uncover a soul's various experiences and relive memories in order to pass on.
The game makes use of your device's camera to detect your blinking IRL, as you go through life's different stages from first loves to family connections in this often-poignant but deeply relatable narrative.
This free-to-play puzzle RPG thrusts players into the colourful metaverse of ALICE, where they'll break panels under a time limit amid bop-your-head-to-the-beat EDM tunes. Players step into the shoes of the main protagonist who loses his or her memories upon logging into ALICE after an unexpected error. You'll then embark on an adventure to recover your memories throughout this vibrant world.
The game also features fully voiced stories that immerse players into the game's metaverse, along with a competitive versus mode where players can go head-to-head with their friends to nab the ultimate crown.
This tabletop-inspired digital board game lets players build their fantasy world in Everdell by managing workers and constructing strategic structures to make their city flourish. They'll have to learn how to gather resources and recruit the right critters to earn points with each card placed. These scores will determine whether or not a player wins after four seasons have passed.
The game lets players engage in a little bit of competitive play as they duke it out against other city founders in cross-platform multiplayer modes. They can also put their own skills to the test in Solo Challenges against AI.
Wings of Glory
Dire Wolf Digital's digital adaptation of the popular aerial combat board game from Ares Games thrusts players into the war-torn world of 1917 Europe. Players will manage biplanes and engage in dogfights to dominate the skies and become Knights of the Air.
The cross-platform title features a variety of pilots players can choose from with their own stats, as well as different vehicles to collect in their hangar as they try to clear special reconnaissance missions.
This massive open-world title features deep character customisation not only with an avatar's physical cosmetics but also with their moves and skill sets. Players can summon Phantoms to bind with to switch up their combat styles during battle.
The game also features a variety of mounts players can use to explore the whole world around them - and the world is truly literal in the sense that starting from one point of the map and heading straight on will allow you to circle the planet and end up back where you started.
