You can also watch the very same video on Youtube in case the link above does not work well.
Here is some additional information about every title mentioned in the video:
Embrace the challenge of a roguelike deckbuilder with unique mechanics from the developers of Faeria and Richard Garfield, creator of Magic: The Gathering™. Build a team of two heroes, unleash powerful combos and defeat the legends of the Roguebook!
Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2:
SGW Contracts 2 is a modern warfare shooter set in the Middle East. Play as Raven, Contract Sniper Assassin, as you take out a series of targets across a dramatic single-player campaign. With extreme-range shots exceeding 1000m, gear up for the most challenging entry to the series yet.
Doki Doki Literature Club Plus:
Welcome to the club! Write poems for your crush and experience the terror of school romance in this critically-acclaimed psychological horror story.
Labyrinth City: Pierre the Maze Detective:
Adapted from the bestselling children’s book series Pierre The Maze Detective, play as Pierre in this adventure/puzzle game and recover the stolen Maze Stone. Journey through breathtakingly hand-drawn illustrations, meet eccentric characters, and solve puzzles to save Opera City!
Muck is a survival-roguelike. Collect resources, find items & build a base to survive for as long as you can.
Choose between Yuito and Kasane, elite psionics each armed with a talent in psychokinesis and their own reason to fight. Complete both of their stories to unlock all the mysteries of a Brain Punk future caught between technology and psychic abilities.
Hop off the train and into your new life in the village of Hokko! Take over the old workshop and get creative; use crafted materials and design everything in town! With complete creative freedom, what type of town will you build?
Bro Falls: Ultimate Showdown:
Bro Falls is an asymmetric massively multiplayer party game with chaotic elements, trap activations and big Falls. Up-to 60 online players in a showdown party and only one who can get the victory. Play as Brokkoli to activate the traps or avoid them as a juicy food and win the rounds.
As far as I am concerned, I would recommend Doki Doki Literature Club Plus. It looks like your typical Japanese love simulator but in reality it takes a surprising turn into a very different genre.
That’s it for this time! Catch you next month!
