The Week of May 4 2018
Legions At War is a new turn based tactics/strategy game inspired by Chess. A battle of wits. Put your tactical mind to the ultimate test with competitive 1vs1 or 2vs2 or even 3vs3. Legions at war offers groundbreaking TBS & TBT concepts. No random chance, you can only win by out maneuvering your opponent.
Having spent 2 years in Early Access Starship Corporation has seen massive improvements. The game has been shaped extensively with help from the community, from their feedback and constructive criticism, for which the Developer has expressed their gratitude. During Early Access, cybernetic organisms were introduced, as were mining and military features. The galaxy map was also redesigned to its current state.
According to conspiracy theorists, Solar Warden is an ultra-secret project that maintains a fleet (or several fleets) of spaceships that are operating primarily within Earth's Orbit and around our solar system. Some say they’re defending us against alien threats.
DUSK reintroduces you to a world where butchery and bloodshed must be mastered if you're to survive 'til dawn. Inspired by Quake, Blood, Heretic, Hexen, Half-Life, Redneck Rampage and all your '90s favorites, and featuring a soundtrack by metal music mastermind Andrew Hulshult.
Stay Safe is a die & retry racing-platformer made by absurdly sadistic people to challenge the rest of the world. The controls are so simple that a lemming could play this game, but rumor says that only a god can finish it. Leaderboards and a ridiculous amount of statistics are available for ship measuring contests.
