How We Know We're Alive
This narrative adventure is part visual novel, part point-and-click mystery where you have to get to the bottom of a tragedy across a short one-hour runtime. You step into the shoes of Sara as she visits her hometown on the anniversary of her best friend's death - but as you speak to the people in the town, things start to unravel, and it would seem there's more to the tragedy than people let on.
The game features gorgeous sceneries and an evocative soundtrack that complements the melancholy feel of the title (check out our review to know more!).
Dead by Daylight Mobile
This highly anticipated multiplayer horror game tasks players either as a Killer or as one of four Survivors in a 4v1 battle. Players can strategise whether or not they want to work together to survive - they can also just fight all by their lonesome and be the last one standing. As for the Killer, they'll have to eliminate each Survivor as any one of the classic horror characters available to unlock within the game.
The current Sadako Rising collaboration event lets players play as the iconic spirit from the popular Japanese Ring franchise until March 28th.
Beyond the Wall
Beyond the Wall harkens back to the heyday of classic point-and-click adventures with its fantastical theme and challenging puzzles. The game features an intriguing narrative where players go beyond the titular garden wall to discover a hidden world filled with magic. Not everything and everyone is a friend, however, so it's up to the player to unlock the secrets of this mysterious version of reality.
The game features plenty of quirky characters and collectible items across thirteen levels. The trailer also gives off plenty of Alice in Wonderland vibes that will likely appeal to fans of that aesthetic.
This unique title offers an immersive and narrative-driven experience across a choose-your-own-adventure-esque audio game. With the game's overall theme of darkness, it's meant to be played with your eyes closed, so the binaural audio should be enough to make the story come alive.
The game also features simple mechanics across six episodes, each one with its own unique charm from a thrilling fantasy adventure to a romantic first date. Choices matter greatly, of course, so it's important to think before you swipe.
This pixel-art RPG features a typical quest to save the world that fans of classic RPGs have come to know and love from the genre. There are more than a hundred party members to recruit as players venture out into the world of Alvastia, plus plenty of weapons to upgrade and quests to take on.
The game also boasts up to 13 partymates you can use, which is massive considering how there are a hundred of them that you can possibly add to your roster. Your squad can also have different buffs depending on their specific bonds.
