Havsala: Into the Soul Palace is a point-and-click adventure game in which you interact with different parts of a room to reveal a story full of historical references and mysticism. In it, you solve puzzles with clues left behind by previous reincarnations of a single soul.

Mago is a 2D platformer in which you play as a sorcerer adventuring through a variety of hand-crafted levels, each with its own mechanics. Naturally, you’ll be using a magic wand to purify evil and solve puzzles. And look, if that doesn’t work out, you can use a mecha robot instead, because even sorcerers can use mecha robots.

Last Days of Lazarus

Last Days of Lazarus is a first-person adventure game in which a troubled man in post-Soviet Eastern Europe returns to his childhood home after his mother’s death. There, as the country and reality itself come to fall apart, the protagonist Lazarus finds himself on a quest to learn more about his family’s disturbing past.

June 23 on PC, Switch

Ruggnar is a 2D platformer that has no enemies whatsoever, other than darkness itself. As the titular dwarven protagonist, you must adventure into ruins and gloomy places, using your limited stock of candles judiciously. Moving carefully, observing your surroundings, and using candles with care (and retrieving them!) are the key to succeed in your journey.
