Warhammer 40,000: Shootas, Blood & Teef official artwork for the Ork based run & gun shooter game

If you're a fan of shooting, Orks, shooting Orks and Orks shooting at other Orks, then the upcoming Warhammer 40,000: Shootas, Blood & Teef might be right up your alley. It's essentially a Metal Slug inspired run & gun platformer that will task you will unleashing your Waaagh! across a variety of over-the-top levels while spouting utter gibberish that can only make sense to an Ork.

Since this is one of those games where trying to explain things through words alone is a pointless venture, allow me to share with you one of the trailers. It should clue you in quite quickly on just what Shootas, Blood & Teef is really all about. Have a gander:

Indie roguelike Dead Cells artwork for the pan-based nunchucks and the Enter the Panchaku update

Continuing with the seemingly never-ending stream of free patches, the Dead Cells team has now unleashed the "Enter the Panchaku" update. The star attraction, as the name might suggest, is the mighty panchaku - two frying pans tied together with a piece of string, which are not only great for carving your way through enemies, but they can even reflect bombs and projectiles in the middle of the combo!

Keeping on with the food theme, the update has also spiced up the weapons and skills with some much-needed balance tweaks. Weapons like the Smoke Bomb and Grappling Hook have received scaling nerfs, the Gilded Yumi has been reworked in order to be more functional in just about every respect, and the list goes on for a while.

[Update]: Axiom Verge 2 has landed onto Steam alongside mostly positive reviews.

After spending a fair bit of time on the Epic Game Store, the PC version of Axiom Verge 2 will soon be landing onto Steam as well. And I really do mean soon, as Axiom Verge 2 will be launching next week, on August 11th!

While Axiom Verge 2 is an exploration focused Metroidvania just like its predecessor, the two games are actually quite different. Axiom Verge 2 has a far greater focus on storytelling and close quarters combat encounters, rather than the usual long ranged firefights. So if you're a fan of the original and itching to dive into a new adventure, you might want to do a little bit of research on it before diving in, just to make sure you don't end up being disappointed with the new direction.

[Update]: After nearly a year of frequent updates, Vampire Survivors will soon be leaving Early Access!

While every update has added at least a secret or two to uncover, the freshly released "The Not One" patch is quite special in that it's almost entirely made out of secrets! However, instead of it being one long guessing game (or one short trip to the wiki), the update has also added the Forbidden Scrolls of Morbane - a relic located in The Bone Zone that offers you hints on how to find all of the game's secrets!

If you're curious what these secrets might look like, and if you're in the mood for some psychedelic imagery, you'll find what you seek in the trailer below. Have a gander:

McPixel 3 official artwork for the humoristic and satirical 'puzzle' adventure

The original McPixel was a fun little point & click adventure where all semblance of sense and logic was thrown out of the window from a speeding train. As such, it should come as little surprise to hear that McPixel's creator has decided to skip straight through McPixel 2 and instead announce McPixel 3. After all, if it has a bigger number, it must be better!

Since words alone aren't the best at trying to describe the sheer insanity of McPixel and its sequel, allow me to share with you the announcement trailer. It should give you a pretty good idea of what sort of ride you're getting yourself on. Have a look:

Much like FTL that came before it, Into the Breach launched as a short yet highly satisfying experience. Even if the Subset Games team never added anything else to it and simply moved onto their next game, Into the Breach would've still been remembered fondly due to how easy it is to pick up and how deliciously tricky it can get towards the end.

So you can imagine my surprise when over four years after its original launch Into the Breach just suddenly got a chunky new update! The Advanced Edition brings with it a whole host of new gameplay options thanks to 5 new squads, 4 new pilots and 39 new weapons & equipment, along with 10 new enemies and 10 new boss battles.

In a bit of a divergence from the usually over-the-top cyberpunk formula, Stray is a freshly released action-adventure following a cat making a mess out of things in a seemingly long-lost metropolis. As you might imagine the gameplay is all about jumping around to explore the neon-lit world, doing a light bit of puzzle-solving, making friends with the surprisingly human-like robots, and naturally, knocking fragile objects off tall surfaces!

Rather than babble on, allow me to share with you the recently posted launch trailer. It should clue you in quite quickly on just what Stray is all about. Have a peek:

[Update]: Vampire Survivors "The Not One" update has added two new secret characters and a wildcard weapon.

Despite Vampire Survivors being nearly finished, the developers don't seem to be all that interested in slowing down with the influx of new content. As such, two weeks after the last major patch, the Vampire Survivors team has now unleashed yet another update!

Update 0.9 - The Flashy One brings with it Boss Rush as a brand new challenge mode, a strange new character and accompanying weapon, as well as two new Arcanas to toy around with. Here's a small teaser of what this looks like in action:

Dicey Dungeons official artwork and logo for the turn-based roguelike

As the name might suggest, Dicey Dungeons is a turn-based roguelike where you get to smash through scores of adorable critters by rolling a whole bunch of dice, all the while playing as a giant walking dice yourself. It's a ridiculous concept, but the gameplay itself is remarkably fun, and things have just gotten even better!

In an update that came pretty much out of nowhere, Dicey Dungeons' free DLC "Reunion" has now added a sizable chunk of new content to explore. Each character has their own extra episode to go through, there's a variety of new equipment to mess around with, and as is tradition, the gameplay formula has been shaken up yet again to help keep things fresh and interesting.

It took a whole lot longer than anyone could've expected, but Cuphead's very first expansion The Delicious Last Course has now arrived. It brings with it Ms. Chalice as a brand new character with her own moveset and perks, and as you might expect, a whole bunch of deviously delightful new stages and bosses to smash your head against.

What this looks like in action, that you can get the briefest of peeks at through the recently posted trailer. It's not a long one, but it's more than enough to let you know that the splendid animation style has not been compromised even one bit. Have a look:
