While City of the Shroud, a real-time strategy RPG, has some interesting design ideas in theory, in practice these designs fall flat.

Ward off monstrous attacks during the despairing midnight hour in Grimmwood — They Come at Night, the strategy indie where you must work together as a village to have even a glimmer of hope of surviving.

By participating in the E4I GraveBall Championship, players affirm they meet all requirements and agree to the following rules.

Sticking to the established 4X formula helps to make Warhammer 40,000: Gladius – Relics of War enjoyable, but keeps it from greatness. While Warhammer 40,000: Gladius – Relics of War is one of the better uses of the WH40K license, it’s only a so-so 4X game.

Though not without flaws, if you want to experience the original magic of Sonic without having to dig out an old Sega Genesis console (yet also be treated to a dash of newness) this is definitely a title to pick up.

French independent studio Eugen Systems (R.U.S.E., Wargame series) is pleased to share a first-look for Steel Division 2, the sequel to its 2017’s real-time strategy title Steel Division: Normandy 44. Set during Operation Bagration, the gigantic Soviet offensive in the summer of 1944, players in Steel Division 2 will see 10v10 multiplayer battles and hundreds of new historically authentic units, and experience the turn-based, single-player ‘Dynamic Strategic Campaigns’.

Outpost Zero is a survival adventure title that features base-building and crafting. The market has seen a noticeable influx of similar games, so creating one that stands out isn’t the easiest task to accomplish. Despite the apparent lifelessness of some areas and certain needed quality-of-life improvements, based on the title’s current state and projected trajectory, it has potential. I know I can see myself sinking time into this, especially the base-building aspect.

The Crew 2 is an overly ambitious racing entry that misses the mark. Despite getting the feeling of cars and other vehicles right, optimization problems and a lifeless map keep this title from really being anything special.

This mostly-stable title is an excellent release for fast-paced fun. Online and offline modes have plenty to offer fans of the fighting genre, including an exciting and funny story.

Conan Exiles is a survival title that successfully immerses you in Robert E. Howard’s brutal Conan setting, but delivers weak combat impact.

In celebration of Dead by Daylight’s two-year anniversary and the feat of surpassing over 4 million copies sold across all platforms, Behaviour Interactive released the newest DLC — Curtain Call.

Kabounce is delightful, especially if you’re looking for an online, competitive multiplayer title. While minor improvements could be made, you’re mostly left wanting more: More maps, more options — more Kabounce!

Antigraviator is an excellent choice when you’re looking for fast-paced action, even if replayability feels a tad limited.

Ancestors Legacy has something to offer everyone. Between its multiplayer skirmishes and its impressive solo campaigns, there’s enough to entertain any kind of player.

Hunt: Showdown caters to those looking for deeper strategy and a slower pace than typical battle royale offerings provide.

Headup Games and Big Moustache Games announce their cooperation on Grimmwood, a challenging social multiplayer RPG experience, blending elements of survival, roguelike and exploration.

Monster Prom is a dating sim that’s ready to scare away the competition with drop-dead gorgeous art, killer writing, and music that’s to die for.

For those looking to dive into the Open Beta and get a taste of how this spiritual successor to PC classic The Ship - also a Blazing Griffin game - moves the genre forward (seriously, it takes place on a flying, time-traveling ship), visit the Murderous Pursuits Open Beta page on Steam and install the free client this Friday.
