Some weeks we find ourselves cheating a bit by including games that have released a little earlier than the normal Wednesday night window. And with the launch of two big titles hitting this morning, this week is no exception.
Does that make our headline a line? Maybe. But if so, it’s a lie that can get new games in your hands right now — so maybe you’ll forgive us for fibbing just a little.
This War of Mine
A simulation game about war, but not about soldiers. This War of Mine puts players in charge of a group of citizen survivors, scrambling from building to building in search of food and other items to help them survive the seemingly never-ending conflict that’s taking place in their streets.
It may have fairly familiar mechanics, but Million Arthur is a card-based RPG with a unique story that might just be worth checking out. Imagine you’ve pulled Excalibur from the stone. Now imagine you’re one of a million people that did the same thing. Welcome to the world of Million Arthur.
Warhammer 40K Deathwatch: Tyranid Invasion
Arguably the longest game title we’ve seen in a while, WH40K Deathwatch: Tyranid Invasion is the latest release from the studio behind the fantasy-based Warhammer title (and much more sensibly named) Warhammer Quest. Because, after all – why swing a sword when you could suit up as a space marine?
If you love puzzle games about connecting colored lines (and considering how popular they’ve been over the years on mobile, there’s a good chance that you do), Forest Home is the latest title you might want to add to your collection. Besides — cute animals are cute.
