Rebel Galaxy Outlaw | 13/08/2019
Genre: Space Flight Simulator
“Strap into a variety of spacecraft, settle a score in a filthy space-bar over a game of 8-ball, rock out to over 24 hours of music, and engage in white-knuckle dogfights. In the Dodge Sector it’s hard to get by – and even harder to get even.” – [source]
Never Give Up | 14/08/2019
Platforms: PC, Nintendo Switch
“Never Give Up is a death-defying platformer packed full of vicious traps and hazards specifically designed to turn you into bloody chunks, and where the only way out— is through. It may break your keyboard, don’t let it break your will.” – [source]
DARQ | 15/08/2019
Genre: Horror Puzzler
“DARQ tells the story of Lloyd, a boy who becomes aware of the fact that he is dreaming. The dream quickly turns into a nightmare and all attempts to wake up end in failure.

“3D Realms, creators of Duke Nukem 3D, Prey, and Max Payne, are excited to team up with Voidpoint to bring back the legendary Build Engine, famously known for classic first-person shooters like Duke Nukem 3D, Shadow Warrior, and Blood. Ion Fury is the real deal!.” – [source]

It’s hard to ignore a game that has this much style and character. Made by a very small development team, DARQ looks to be one of those success stories that you just can’t help but celebrate.
Using perspective to create unique and fascinating puzzles, all whilst maintaining a very creepy aesthetic, DARQ looks like a game you won’t want to miss. Can you escape from a recurring lucid dream?
