Valiant Hearts: The Great War
A surprisingly touching game about the first World War, we were definitely intrigued by what Valiant Hearts had to offer in its desktop incarnation. This is the same basic game, but this time the controls have been rethought to take advantage of touch screens. Sounds promising!
Like blowing stuff up with your finger? Armor Games is launching their own fresh take on the shmup genre tonight with Gemini Strike, a shooter that lets you raid cargo during the breather moments to find randomly generated items to customize your ship.
