Co-op Spellcasting Adventure Nine Parchments Coming Soon to Xbox One

Nine Parchments is a type of game that we like to call a blast’em up, where you play as a bunch of wizarding students on a quest to find powerful spell parchments.

Co-op is of course the go-to mode to experience the full magical chaos, as friendly fire is always on, and from our experience your teammates tend to be trigger-happy. Over the course of a playthrough, you’ll also... Read more: Co-op Spellcasting Adventure Nine Parchments Coming Soon to Xbox One

Super Lucky’s Tale Is Here!

Hello, from all of us at Playful! This is an incredible day for us. We finally get to hand the controller to Xbox One and Windows 10 PC players and see what they think of Super Lucky’s Tale!

We learned a lot about who Lucky is – a brave, curious fox who loves adventure and making people smile. For Super Lucky’s Tale, we wanted to expand on the language of the first game...
