Mission in Snowdriftland:
Chubby is back! After 15 years, the fearless little snowman is setting out to save some important artifacts from video game history. Mission in Snowdriftland is a pixel-art homage to classic 2D platformers like Super Mario.

Sam & Max: Beyond Time and Space:
The Freelance Police are back on the crime beat in a newly remastered version of their second episodic season. Zombies will dance. Mariachis will sing. A giant battle robot will trash the streets. And when their friends’ lives are at stake, Sam & Max will risk their very souls to set things right.
Babble Royale is an intense multiplayer free-for-all that combines word-making skill with fast-paced tactical and strategic action. Earn money and collect loot to upgrade your abilities, outrun the deadly hot zone, and outwit or outlast all your opponents to have the Last Word!
A 3D Fantasy Kingdom Sim driven by intelligent characters with a rich simulation of opinions and memories. Build, Craft, Farm, Mine, Hunt, Defend, and more! Command from the sky or take control in third person as your story goes where the people, your actions, and their reactions take it.

A unique mix of adventure and idle game. Plan and optimise your loops carefully and let the grind happen automatically. Explore this unique world, meet strange characters and escape the loop. A high-quality idle game that elevate the mechanics through an old school pixel-art adventure.
Shadow Tactics: Aiko’s Choice:
Aiko’s Choice is the anticipated standalone expansion to the acclaimed stealth strategy game Shadow Tactics. Set in Edo Japan, you take control of the skillful kunoichi adept Aiko and her deadly assassin friends to hunt down the ghosts of her past.
This month Chorus looks like a new take on the story-driven spacesim genre. Twin Mirror also caught my attention (kind of reminiscent of Life is Strange). And I am also reminded I need to finish Shadow Tactics before trying out the extension!
