Let’s get on with it!
Based on the global phenomenon that is The Walking Dead comics series, this free-to-play RPG lets players recruit popular characters from the franchise as they fight to survive a gruesome post-apocalyptic world.
The game features idle gameplay where players can progress through the title without the hardcore grind. They’ll have to defend the settlement of Asyl against foes, gather supplies from Supply Run and Dispatch, battle against other players in the Borderlands and more.
Ubisoft’s battle royale game lets players pick their Survivor to go head-to-head in 40-player battles on an exotic island. Players can gather resources to boost their survivability, defend against wild critters, or duke it out with other survivors to reign supreme.
The game features a variety of unique characters that have their own abilities and weapons to suit different playstyles, as well as tons of in-game goodies up for grabs in the Wild Pass. Players can also try their hand in the SOLO MODE or DUO MODE.
This charming hidden object game boasts the talents of artist Jacky Jackson featuring a unique black-and-white style with lots of humour and heart. The hidden objects may seem like they’re part of the illustration at first glance, but things aren’t always what they seem – players will have to challenge their powers of observation across more than 90 drawings.
The game also features a handy hint system, plus an AI-generated voice-over for accessibility in Spanish, Hindi, Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Portuguese, Hebrew and English.
This social deception game tasks players with trying to make it out of a blizzard alive while fending for themselves against the terrifying forces of nature. Players have to gather resources, search for supplies and call for some much-needed SOS, but a traitor in their midst will make the hellish landscape even more challenging.
The game is all about collaboration with 7 other players in a group, but players will always have to be on their toes when treachery is lurking just around the corner.
This incredibly unique mix of genres lets players experience the satisfaction of crossword puzzles while taking them through an emotional journey with its engaging narrative. Players follow the tale of the compelling main protagonist, Tilly, as she journeys aboard her train to discover the wonders of the great big world.
The game features various game modes that put players’ vocabulary prowess to the test, plus a colourful cast of characters to meet, constellations to form, trinkets to collect and locations to unlock along the way.
