Pathologic 2, much like the original, is a highly atmospheric and often unforgiving experience. While all of this ties into the story and the revelations you'll discover as you move further on, being intentionally overwhelming can still be frustrating to players, which is why there have been quite a few complaints about the difficulty ever since Pathologic 2 released a little while ago.

In order to address these concerns, as well as give players the ability to customize their own experience, the developers have now announced that they are working on a difficulty slider. That said, they have also once again emphasized that Pathologic 2 is supposed to be "almost unbearable" and that removing the difficulty might also remove a good portion of the atmosphere with it.

After spending a fair bit of time in Steam Early Access, Beat Saber has now finally been released in full. The launch version brings with it a brand new Level Editor, new graphics settings to mess around with, better lighting and UI, as well as a variety of optimizations and bug fixes.

While there is unfortunately no new preview showcasing the freshly improved visuals and interface, you can still get a pretty good idea of just what Beat Saber has to offer through one of the original trailer. Have a peek:

Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden is an XCOM-inspired turn-based RPG that released back in late 2018. While somewhat clunky due to its indie origins, Mutant Year Zero ended up getting some pretty good reviews across the board, with a special mention going towards its rather unique and colorful cast of characters.

With that in mind, I am very happy to announce that the developers are now working on a brand new expansion - Seed of Evil. You can expect to see a new character in the form of Big Khan the moose, a variety of new plant-infested enemies, plenty of new locations to explore and abilities to unlock, and naturally, a storyline that continues on from the original's ending.

After quite a few years in development, the highly atmospheric and fairly abstract adventure game Pathologic 2 has now made its way to PC and consoles. Much like its predecessor, it brings with it a variety of unique and utterly bizarre characters, a dreary and oppressive atmosphere, as well as a story that doesn't exactly follow the usual structure. The Pathologic games really are strange, but that's also what makes them so appealing!

If you're wondering how all of this translates into actual gameplay, as well as what Pathologic 2's atmosphere truly looks like, allow me to share with you the recently posted launch trailer. Have a peek, it's certainly an interesting one:

Warhammer: Chaosbane official artwork with logo

Warhammer: Chaosbane, just like the Diablo series from which it draws a good portion of its inspiration, is a fantasy hack and slash that's all about cleaving through untold hordes of monsters in search of randomized loot. Chaosbane also features a variety of classes, each of which has their own unique strengths, abilities, talents and playstyles. Long story short, it is a Warhammer themed ARPG through and through.

You can get a pretty good idea of what all of this looks like in gameplay terms through one of the character trailers down below. Have a look, the High Elf Mage is my favorite out of the bunch:

If you're looking for something a bit out of the ordinary, you might want to check out Jalopy. It is essentially a road trip simulator that will take you across the various countries of the former Eastern bloc. And if that doesn't sound bizarre enough already, know that you will also need to do all of the repairs on your car manually - everything from changing tires to fixing internal parts if they ever blow up.

You can get an idea of what all of this nonsense looks like in gameplay terms, as well as the style Jalopy is going for, through one of the original trailers down below. Have a look:

Void Bastards screenshot of cloaked robotic enemies

Void Bastards is an upcoming roguelike-styled shooter that will have you constantly make difficult decisions as you move across the star map in search of salvation. You'll need to pick where and how you'll fight, which enemies to avoid and which ones to try and brute force your way through, which supplies to carry with you and which ones to leave behind, and naturally, which one of your fellow crew members will get the honor of being sacrificed for the greater good!

For those of you wondering what this pile of features might look like in gameplay terms, as well as what sort of atmosphere Void Bastards is going for, allow me to share with you the original announcement trailer. It should give you a pretty good idea of what to expect. Have a peek:
