UnMetal is a 2D stealth action-adventure that pays homage to the classics with a healthy dose of humor and satire. You play as Jesse Fox, who is definitely NOT an elite commando, under arrest for a crime he didn’t commit, and must escape a covert military base using his wits and fists.
Face unspeakable horrors. Succumb to madness. Welcome to a free daemonic narrative experience inspired by H. P. Lovecraft.

Project Grove: Prologue is the first quest of an adventure puzzle game. Explore the Forest of Dacrima as legendary alchemist Edric Tate, with your plucky robot companion L-P1N! Brew potions to solve puzzles in your search for a cure to The Great Rot.
This month I must admit I have a certain inkling towards Tales of Arise and Bravely Default II – The tales series usually deliver some solid experiences, and Bravely Default has been described as the new Final Fantasy, in terms of spiritual successor. I might check that out in more details very soon…
