John Wick Hex official artwork and logo

Thomas Was Alone and Volume developer Mike Bithell has announced that he and his team are now not only tackling their very first licensed game, but a John Wick game at that! The freshly revealed John Wick Hex will be a fast-paced strategy game where players will need to carefully consider every move and action they take, as every single one can have both immediate and long-term consequences.

Since trying to explain this trough words alone is a bit of a pointless task, allow me to share with you the recently posted announcement trailer. Have a gander, it's certainly an interesting one:

After quite a few years in development, the highly atmospheric and often bizarre adventure game Pathologic 2 will be coming to PC this May 23rd. Much like the original, you can expect Pathologic 2 to bring with it a heavy and oppressive atmosphere, plenty of unique and outright crazy characters, as well as a story that is anything but straightforward.

While all of this is incredibly difficult to showcase through a single video, I'd say the recently posted trailer does a pretty good job of establishing just what Pathologic 2 is all about. Have a gander, it's certainly an interesting one:

Risk of Rain 2 official artwork and logo

Just like the original, Risk of Rain 2 is a fairly challenging roguelike that will have you face off against increasingly large hordes of monsters armed with a variety of items, abilities and powerups. A fairly simple concept, but one that Risk of Rain 2 has managed to execute with resounding successes, even though it only just launched into Steam Early Access. 

With that in mind, I am very happy to say that Hopoo Games' work has not gone unnoticed as Risk of Rain 2 has just managed to hit a truly impressive milestone - over a million copies sold in a single month! Just for comparison, it took the original Risk of Rain nearly five years in order to achieve the same number of sales on Steam.

As the name itself would imply, Rise of Industry is a strategy-focused tycoon game that will ask of you to build and manage a massive industrial empire. You'll need to build factories, ensure a steady and efficient stream of supplies, produce and ship a variety of goods, and naturally, arrange and manage numerous trade deals in order to keep expanding your empire's reach.

If you're wondering what all of this looks like in gameplay terms, allow me to share with you the recently posted launch trailer. Have a peek, it's a pretty straightforward one:

Tales of the Neon Sea screnshot of the in-game city

Unlike most cyberpunk games which focus on the more action-orientated parts of the setting, Tales of the Neon Sea is almost entirely about the story and puzzle-solving. Without spoiling too much, you'll be expected to solve a murder mystery which will take you all across the city and straight into the grips of a massive conspiracy. Oh, and just for good measure, you'll also sometimes get to play as an adorable little cat!

If you're wondering what all of this might look like in gameplay terms, though unfortunately not the parts with the cat, allow me to share with you one of the recent gameplay previews. It's a fairly lengthy video, so you should get a good idea of what Tales of the Neon Sea has to offer:

The Sinking City screenshot of the characters sailing through ruins

The Sinking City is a Lovecraftian adventure-investigation hybrid that will have you attempt to unveil a sinister plot filled with seedy characters, as is tradition, as well as hopefully maintain your sanity throughout the process. If that sounds like your type of game, you might be glad to hear that The Sinking City will be coming this June 27th for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

On the other hand if you're wondering what exactly the moment-to-moment gameplay is all about, and you don't mind some rather mild spoilers, allow me to share with you the recently posted gameplay preview. Have a gander:

Thea 2: The Shattering official artwork and logo

Thea 2: The Shattering is a 4X strategy game that blends together elements from grand strategy games, RPGs and even card games. What this means in gameplay terms is that you'll have to manage a large empire as it spreads across the world map, equip your various characters with the best armor and weapons you can possibly find, and then finally duke it out with your enemies through a card game inspired combat system.

Rather than babble on, allow me to share with you one of the recent trailers. It should give you a pretty good idea of just what Thea 2 is about, as well as how its various elements combine together. Have a gander:
