Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse
“Embark on a brand new adventure with Shantae, the hair-whipping belly dancing genie. When she loses her magic, Shantae must team up with her nemesis, the nefarious pirate Risky Boots in order to save Sequin Land from an evil curse.
As a pirate, Shantae gains new weapons to advance her quest, slay monsters, battle epic bosses…and hopefully, get her magic back in the bargain! But can she really trust her deadliest enemy?”Xbox
“Coffee Talk is a game about listening to people’s problems and helping them by serving up a warm drink out of the ingredients you have in stock. It is a game that depicts lives as humanly as possible while having a cast that is more than just humans.
Immerse yourself in the stories of alternative-Seattle inhabitants, ranging from a dramatic love story between an elf and a succubus, an alien trying to understand humans’ lives, and many others modern readers will find strongly echo the world around them”.Xbox
Destroy All Humans!
“This is your chance to experience the other side of an alien invasion. You take on the role of alien Cryptosporidium 137 and terrorise the people of Earth to harvest their DNA in the most brazen action-adventure you’ve ever played.
Take over all of humanity using a variety of alien weaponry on land or in the air. Take over all of humanity using a variety of alien weaponry such as a ray gun, an anal probe gun, the Ion Detonator, the Zap-O-Matic, the Sonic Boom, the Quantum Deconstructor, a powerful nuclear weapon that can launch radioactive bombs, and more – on land or in the air.
Crypto can use Telekinesis to throw cars, trucks and cows to create even more of a turmoil or disguise himself as a puny human. For transport, use a jet pack for short distances or your UFO for travelling long distances and abducting or destroying humans.
Take one giant step on mankind!”Xbox
“SINE MORA is a horizontal shoot’em up that provides a unique take on challenge where time is the ultimate factor. Mixing classic shooter sensibilities with contemporary presentation, SINE MORA is a gorgeous shmup.
Offering a Story Mode that weaves an over-the-top tale and an Arcade Mode that provides deep, satisfying gameplay to challenge fans of the genre. With many ways to manipulate time, SINE MORA features over 60 weapon combinations to complete each beautifully-crafted stage that form fits the player’s skills with scaling difficulty.
