Children of Morta is not only a very good game that scored a well-deserved 9.3/10 in our REVIEW, but it has also received a couple of great updates since its release. These include some unique ones, like the recently released Family Fireside Fables, which is a pack of six charming tales read by the game’s narrator, Ed Kelly.

It is titled Family Trials and adds a combat-focused game mode that all users can now play for free
Help a sword-wielding princess take on the skeletal enemies and traps of the sky tower in this third-person title by Animu Game. The visuals and audio are decent, but the game is just way too short and simple. It can be completed in less than two hours and most of it will be spent solving some basic puzzles along with the occasional bit of combat. With a bit more polish and a few more levels Forward to the Sky could have been great, but as it is there are much better options available.
Gameplay: The controls could definitely have been tighter and the overall experience is very short.
Graphics: Bright and colorful, but not much in terms of variety.
Sound: Passable background music and voice acting

Close to 4,000 backers ended up backing the project to get this modern telling of the classic mythology made
Tesla Force builds on all the elements that made Tesla Vs Lovecraft so great but adds a ton of rogue-lite features.

Gameplay: Non-stop shooting action along with some strategic choices to make.
Graphics: Similar to the original game, but also has plenty of enhancements.
Sound: Great soundtrack and sound effects
