Wonder Boy Returns (CFK Co., Ltd.)

Not content with finally bringing Princess Maker 2 Refine to English speaking audiences, CFK, is also bringing a high definition remake of the original Wonder Boy to Steam. The first game in the series was released back in 1986 and made quite an impression in the arcades thanks to its fast paced side scrolling action.

Nelly Cootalot: Spoonbeaks Ahoy! HD (Application Systems London Ltd.)

Fans of Point & Click Adventure games will know that we reviewed the pirate themed Nelly Cootalot: The Fowl Fleet a while back, awarding it a well-deserved 8.3/10. It is a charming and humorous take on the genre, starring a feisty pirate heroine. What many players might not know is that The Fowl Fleet actually had a freeware prequel, titled Spoonbeaks Ahoy! While Spoonbeaks Ahoy! can still be enjoyed in its original low resolution format, the success of The Fowl Fleet has meant that fans can soon enjoy a remastered high definition version of the game

Syndrome (Camel 101)

Syndrome (Camel 101)

Looking at the previous releases of developer Camel 101 reveals two things. Firstly, they are definitely not lacking in ambition when it comes to their titles and secondly, they are getting better at what they do with each release. This is very evident in their upcoming release, Syndrome. The game opens with your character waking from cryosleep aboard the exploration and science ship, the Valkenburg. In true survival horror fashion, the shift is drifting through pace with the rest of the crew all dead or insane. You are required to get your bearings, find out what happened and figure out who you can trust

Xenoraid (10tons Ltd)

Usually all it takes to get our attention are the words “shoot ‘em up,” but Xenoraid from 10tons Ltd looks like it will be of special interest. The game is a vertically scrolling shooter with a small dash of bullet hell, but don’t expect to memorize your way out of harm’s way with this one. 10tons has revealed that missions will be procedurally driven based on set parameters, which means enemy formations and attack directions will be different each time

The Stargazers (Lupiesoft)

For their latest title Lupiesoft turned their attention to the stars and created The Stargazers, a game inspired by 50s and 80s science fiction, pulp fiction and good old mecha anime. Unlike their previous titles this one is set to be a self-contained story and will follow the adventures of the Stargazers Squadron, a group of three pilots who are stationed in deep space

Steam Early Access Debut For Ironkraft – Road to Hell is Just Around The Corner

There has been plenty of games set in alternative WW2 realities, but Ironkraft might just be one of the strangest. With Zomies, Nazis and even aliens thrown in for good measure its post-apocalyptic vehicle driven universe certainly sounds like it won’t be boring. The game was Greenlit on Steam in less than eight days back in August and is set for an Early Access release on October 21st 2015

Celestian Tales: Old North Launching on Steam, Humble Store and GOG.com

Celestian Tales: Old North Launching on Steam, Humble Store and GOG.com

Got a hankering for a turn-based role playing game, but tired of the same old saving the world cliché? In that case, Celestian Tales: Old North might be one to watch. The game promises lush, hand-painted environments, memorable characters, emotive character portraits, moral decisions and a sprawling storyline, but without resorting to the formulaic elements present in most RPGs. This means no ancient prophesies, world ending catastrophes, or character who is the “chosen” one

Skyhill (Mandragora)

Skyhill (Mandragora)

We’ve been keeping a close eye on Skyhill, the roguelike survival horror title from Mandragora, so naturally we couldn’t refuse the opportunity to try out a playable version of this title. The game opens with the protagonist, Perry Jason, booking into the VIP suite of the Skyhill hotel while on a business trip. From the 100th floor of the hotel Perry witnesses the biological attack on the city that turns everyone else into slavering monsters. Driven from his room by hunger, Perry only has one way to go, down
