Let's get on with it!
My Lovely Wife
Part creature sim and part tragic horror, this unique title ultimately lets you, as the main protagonist Jake, deal with the loss of your significant other in more macabre ways than usual. My Lovely Wife is a twisted kind of dating sim in that you'll perform dark rituals to bring your wife Luna back from the dead - the only problem is that you'll have to summon succubi and sacrifice them to craft a vessel for her deceased soul.
The game also features multiple endings and a gothic fantasy art style, along with the ultimate choice of either letting go of your wife with a new love, or sacrificing everything to resurrect Luna.
This adorable pixel-art game tasks you with the noblest quest ever in the history of mankind - saving cuddly cats by leading them back to their cardboard homes. You'll guide these feline friends across a variety of physics-based puzzles, where you can use everything from mines to bombs to carve pathways for them and watch as your masterpieces come to life and react with one another.
The game also features special stars you can collect as well as plenty of cosy vibes and a retro soundtrack to complete the nostalgic package.
Last True Sword
This narrative-driven 2D action platformer features gorgeous pixelated worlds that stay true to the game's samurai-themed aesthetic, whether you're duking it out with other players in a one-on-one duel or testing your survival skills against hordes of endless foes in the Eclipse mode.
As a noble samurai, you can upgrade your abilities with a variety of Special Attacks, Skins, Elements, and fighting techniques across different characters. You can also test your reflexes in "The Path" mode, where you'll have to leap through obstacles in an endless runner-esque style where one wrong move means Game Over.
This narrative romance game offers a plethora of choices for you to craft your own love story, whether you're into Western fantasy or find the feels more exhilarating within a modern romance. The choices you make will impact how the tale will go, with multiple branching narratives to discover with your chosen love interest.
The game boasts stellar voice talent from Japan along with gorgeously designed characters and stunning artwork. You can also deepen your character affinities with dating, campus activities, collecting mementoes and more.
Now on mobile, this real-time strategy game sets you off on a futuristic sci-fi adventure as you defend humanity against an alien invasion. As expected from the genre, you'll command and expand your own fleet of spaceships while sending out mining ships and probes to gather resources for you.
The game offers 2 modes to tinker around with: the Story Mode has a variety of missions you can take on while the Skirmish Mode lets you dive into a procedurally generated world where you can put your spacefaring skills to the test.
