Judgment: Apocalypse Survival Simulation is a colony simulation game with tactical combat taking place in the midst of The Apocalypse. Guide a group of people through the mayhem -- hiding from hell-spawn and building a safe haven. The game combines economy simulation with tactical combat missions; you survive by crafting equipment, defending your base and sending teams to scavenge for supplies.
Command a settlement of ancient humans, guide them through the ages in their struggle for survival. Hunt, gather, craft tools, fight, research new techs and face the challenges the environment will throw at you.
Beware is currently in early development. At the base, it's an open-world driving simulation where the player embarks on a long journey of information-gathering through exploration. One of the gameplay elements are intense, 70's movies style, car chases with challenging AI opponents. There are stealth element too where you can avoid being detected and explore the world undisturbed.
We're excited to introduce the latest classes in the turn-based tactical RPG Depth of Extinction: the Wrecker and the Warden. The Wrecker wreaks havoc with his AOE minigun while the Warden is a defensive focused character who lays down covering fire to any enemy who fires on an ally.
The Pedestrian is a 2.5D puzzle platformer that takes “puzzle platforming” literally. You play as The Pedestrian (aka the male bathroom symbol) who works at the restroom sign along with his beloved (the female symbol). When she disappears, you must escape your day job and embark on a perilous journey where you piece the “sign world” back together to make it through.
