The Week of March 17 2019
Edge of Eternity is an indie tribute inspired by the great JRPG traditions of turn-based combat and character progression and the success of western RPG elements including vast open worlds to explore along with non-linear stories. Choose your destiny as you live a rich stirring adventure driven by the choices you make along the way!
Grimshade is a mixture of classical, Japanese and tactical RPG. The game takes you in a medieval world of technomagic and steam engines filled with the mysterious energy of Ether. Explore the world of Ree'Fah and develop your characters abilities and relationships. The dark and cruel atmosphere will change under the impact of your decisions and victories in the developed turn-based combat system.
El Taco Diablo is a simplistic but very difficult game inspired by Devil Daggers. This is a game about your accuracy and speed. It is best played at short intense intervals that will wake you up in the morning and put you in a good mood with its fun aesthetics and rock mariachi music. The only goal is to survive as long as you can! (Although most don’t make it past 150 sec.)
The Forgotten City is a time travel murder mystery set in a mythological city. Deep underground in an ancient Roman city, twenty-six trapped explorers lay dead because one of them broke a mysterious law. Within, a portal leads back into the past, allowing you to change their fate – or witness their deaths in a time loop for eternity. Fortunately, hope remains. The Forgotten City offers incredible freedom, inviting players to manipulate the timeline, Groundhog Day-style, so events play out differently. By talking with diverse characters, making tough choices in moral dilemmas, and thinking laterally, you can unlock vastly different endings
Focused on combat without compromising realism, ASTROKILL is a modern space shooter drawing inspiration from old-school games like TIE Fighter and Freespace 2. Players pilot fighters, gunships, interceptors, and medics (in 1st or 3rd person) from warring factions in ballistic dogfights.
