The once proud city of Ubersreik lay in ruin at the hands of the dreaded Skaven army. Their ruthless invasion left few alive. All that stands in the way of the city’s ultimate fall is you and your team of misfit heroes. Team up with 3 friends and work together to cripple the ratmen’s forces and drive them out of the city. Assume the role of one of five heroes, and hack, slash, smash, burn and pierce the vile Skaven using a multitude of weapons. Fight your way through the city of Ubersreik, from the top of the Magnus Tower to the bowels of the Under Empire. Prepare for a desperate struggle and a grand last stand. Only you can stem the Vermintide.

Castles

Want to flex those creative thinking muscles and enjoy a little competition on the side? Castles is an award-winning action puzzle game that is sure to delight & entertain family & friends. 

Castles is an action puzzle game, set in a fantasy medieval world. Up to two players have to rise the highest tower in the kingdom, matching blocks of materials and construction tools, and facing problems like weather and giant bosses.

The players don’t control blocks, instead, they control the “engineers”, which makes for a very different game experience. Blocks will fall from above onto the central 5×5 grid, where the player have to push and pull them in order to make combinations. If you complete the level goals, the tower grows taller. As it grows, different challenges in the shape of weather effects or enemies will get in the way.

Players also can play in the arena, trying to survive as long as they can, or compete one against other.

A classic run & gun sidescroller with roguelike elements, Rogue Stormers is filled with explosive mayhem! Includes local and online co-op. 

Rogue Stormers is a run ‘n’ gun game with roguelike elements for up to four players in local and online multiplayer mode. Dying in a mission will allow you to keep earned perks which allow your character to grow stronger with each new raid. You’ll delve further and further with each session until you finally defeat the final boss.
Our technology enables us to layer and combine level chunks to create meaningful level combinations with infinite replayability. An ever-growing cast of enemies, hazards and loot is layered within each chunk, generating incredible diversity.

Tons of different upgrades and weapons will cause each new session to play in a unique fashion, depending on which weapons or upgrades you pick and get. Adding to that are five unlockable character classes, each with its own skills and base weapon.

All these factors combined determine how you’ll engage the sprawling city of Ravensdale. Will you go toe to toe with your enemies or pick them off them from a distance? Will you cripple your enemies, block attacks or just blast everything apart with pure damage? It’s up to you. Everything is possible in Rogue Stormers.

 

That’s it for this week! Check back every Monday for a list of upcoming releases!

Best,
