Ooblets (Game Preview) – Be prepared for a cuteness overload. Ooblets is a farming, creature collection, and town life game where you build up your farm, befriend townsfolk, grow ooblets, and have dance-offs. Level up your team of ooblets to unlock new dance moves and compete in tournaments. Complete tasks to style your character and build your reputation in town. Don’t be a toot by sleeping on this game.

Rock of Ages 3 – A competitive tower defense and arcade action game rolled up with ACE Team’s quirky, Monty Python-esque humor into one giant, creative game for the ages. Jump into the expansive, gut-busting story for an eclectic adventure featuring bizarre and irreverent takes on legendary characters, or for the first time, create and share your own levels to compete with friends and strangers online in a real-time mix of hectic tower defense and epic boulder-racing arcade action.

Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus – Take control of the most technologically advanced army in the Imperium – The Adeptus Mechanicus — in this critically acclaimed turn-based tactical game. Your every decision will shape the missions ahead and ultimately decide the fate of the troops under your command in over 50 hand-crafted missions, including the amazing Heretek DLC missions. Choose your path carefully – the Imperium depends on it.

Carrion – An Xbox Game Pass day one launch title for Xbox One and Windows 10 PC, and the latest exciting game from publisher Devolver Digital,’ Carrion is a reverse horror game in which you assume the role of an amorphous creature of unknown origin. Stalk and consume those that imprisoned you to spread fear and panic throughout the facility.
