Solstice is a mystery thriller visual novel with some beautiful art

Solstice is a mystery thriller that asks you a rather difficult question: if stuck in a dystopian world, would you prefer to stay silent and safe, or take the hard road to freedom?

Its being made by MoaCube, the developers behind the well written and quite endearing Cinders, and since the release date for Solstice is only two days off I would like to bring it to your attention, starting with the trailer:

The Count Lucanor is a charming and well written horror adventure game

The Count Lucanor is a charming pixel adventure that takes place in a equally lovely fantasy land, but as it so often happens, darkness lurks beneath the seemingly perfect veneer and soon enough you will get roped in to a mystery of the most horrific kind.

It released a couple of weeks ago, on March 3rd to be exact, with some great reviews backing it up, but has unfortunately somehow escaped the public's eye. So allow me to showcase you The Count Lucanor, starting with the trailer:

Skullstone is a dungeon crawling RPG

Skullstone is a 3D grid-based dungeon crawler where you, and your enemies, hop along the dungeon floor and attempt to obliterate each other through the use of weapons, magic, and deadly traps, all the while resisting the urge to succumb to the most unholy of temptations, moving diagonally.

Its currently still in development so expect to see some placeholder art, but the brief gameplay video the developers posted oozes that old school RPG charm that first drew me to the genre. Have a look, and skip to 55 seconds if you want to get to the gameplay directly:

Mages Of Mystralia is a charming action adventure

Mages of Mystralia, besides being nigh impossible to google unless you're interested in Australian landscapes, is a charming action adventure that allows you to craft your very own spells in order to overcome enemies and puzzles alike.

It was announced a mere few days ago with a rather fetching trailer which I would like to share with you, along with some more information on what exactly Mages of Mystralia really is:

Deadbolt is a difficulty strategy-action hybrid with some stealth elements

Deadbolt is an extremely challenging stealth-action hybrid that comes to us from the developers of the amazing Risk of Rain, and much like RoR it features satisfying action, pixely graphics and a whole lot of enemies to overcome.

After being announced only two months ago Deadbolt is now available on Steam, and the reception has been rather positive so far. Here's the trailer and a bit more info:

The Descendant is a Telltale and Fallout inspired narrative game

The Descendant is a narrative driven adventure game, in the vein of Telltale's various series, that let's you experience the world after an eco-apocalypse has ravaged the landscape and forced the remnants of humanity to seek shelter in underground Ark facilities.

Here's a video showcasing the first 10 minutes of The Descendant which are mostly focused on exposition and character building, with a bit of gameplay near the end (around 7 minutes):

Book of Demons is an upcoming paper styled hack and slash

Book of Demons is an upcoming indie ARPG, seemingly inspired by Diablo, and presented in a lovely paper-craft aesthetic, one of the rare few games on PC to adopt such a style.

Much like Diablo, Book of Demons asks of you to venture deep beneath the city, through randomly generated catacombs and caverns, in order to reach hell itself and bring righteous fury against the cardboard devil. Here's the trailer which comes in the form of a poem, and a bit more information:

Legion TD 2 is an upcoming tower defense game with a twist

[Update]: Legion TD 2 will be launching from Steam Early Access on October 1, 2021.

This is shaping up to be a great month for fans of Warcraft 3 custom maps as Element TD was recently ported over to Dota 2, and the equally popular Legion TD is now getting a standalone sequel.

Legion TD 2 is a multiplayer, free-to-play tower defense game that combines all of the elements thousands, if not millions, have come to love with the original, but without any of the restraints of the now ancient Warcraft 3 engine. Here's the brief trailer and some more information:

Thumper is an indie action-rhythm game

Thumper is an action-rhythm game that's all about ludicrous speeds and violent collisions, but if that wasn't already a child's biggest wish it also stars a sleek, metallic space insect.

It was announced way back, in the ancient times of 2013, and after going through numerous delays the release date for this galactic beetle has finally been pinned down for 2016. Here's the strangely stressful, but exciting trailer and a bit more information:

Battlerite is a spiritual successor to BLC

Bloodline Champions was an impeccably well balanced, team orientated arena brawler that featured a unique cast of characters, skill based fighting and enough depth to keep even the most hardcore of players invested. Nowadays, mostly due to publisher greed and some unfortunate timing, it has become a ghost town of poorly executed microtransactions and power creep.

However, not all is lost as Stunlock Studios (the folks behind the original Bloodline Champions) are now making a spiritual successor by the name of Battlerite. Here's the trailer, and if you've ever played BLC prepare to be excited beyond measure:
