Here is some additional information about every title mentioned in the video:
Hell Architect is a game about building and managing your own hell. You take on a role of a hell manager and are tasked with developing the underworld in a way that would make Lucifer himself fall off his chair.
An interactive thriller about a man trapped in a time loop. Featuring James McAvoy, Daisy Ridley, and Willem Dafoe.
Lawn Mowing Simulator:
Experience the beauty and detail of mowing the Great British countryside in Lawn Mowing Simulator, the only simulator that allows you to ride an authentic and expansive roster of real-world licensed lawn mowers from prestigious manufacturers; Toro, SCAG and STIGA as you manage your business.
Hoa is a beautiful puzzle-platforming game that features breathtaking hand-painted art, lovely music, and a peaceful, relaxing atmosphere.
A digital toy for skateboard loving people. Pure flow, no extra fluff.
Aliens: Fireteam Elite:
Set in the iconic Alien universe, Aliens: Fireteam Elite is a cooperative third-person survival shooter that drops your fireteam of hardened marines into a desperate fight to contain the evolving Xenomorph threat.
Bum Simulator is a sandbox game bursting with inappropriate humor and memorable characters. You live on the streets of Bumsville. Do you have what it takes to adapt, survive and become an urban legend?
Here Comes Niko:
Here Comes Niko! is the cozy 3D platformer for tired people! You play as Niko traveling across scenic islands. Make new friends, catch fish, solve puzzles, snag bugs, and more! Oh, Did I mention your boss is a frog?
You Can Kana:
Learn and master Hiragana and Katakana, the japanese phonetic alphabets. Discover the characters in fun and effective lessons, and train your reading speed in Challenge Mode. For beginners and experts alike.
As far as I am concerned, I would recommend Twelve Minutes. Excellent voice cast, and a story a la Groundhog Day, what’s not to like??
That’s it for this time! Catch you next month! Don’t forget to subscribe.
