Still There (20th November on PC, Mac, Switch)

Still There is a narrative adventure game set on a space lighthouse. Sounds lonely, right? Well, there’s also an adventure in the waiting, concerning “grief, technical puzzles, wacky AIs and dark humour”. And well, if none of that works, there’s also Italian coffee.

G.R.E.E.N. The Life Algorithm (21st November on Switch; 22nd November on PC, PS4, Xbox One)

G.R.E.E.N. The Life Algorithm (also referred to as “GREEN the Video Game” or “GREEN Video Game) is about a world where genetically altered vegetation has endangered the human species itself. You will have to contend with intelligent plants to petrify them and use them to your advantage, as well as solve puzzles.

The Touryst (21st November on Switch)

The Touryst has you arriving at Monument Islands, and you’re free to explore the town and talk to the locals as you see fit. There’s a lot to do, from surfing and shopping, to diving and dancing. You can also go spelunking if you fancy exploring the mysteries of the islands.

Black Future ’88 (21st November on PC, Switch)

Black Future ’88 is a shooter with a pretty simple goal at its heart. You have to climb a procedurally generated tower and kill its owner, all before your heart explodes. The game’s version of 1988 is drenched in synth-punk retro-futurism, and it features co-op play as well as daily challenges.

Lost Ember (22nd November on PC, PS4, Xbox One)

Lost Ember is an exploration game in which you play as a variety of animals, each with their own abilities, as you explore a fallen world and learn how it came to be, well, fallen. You’ll travel by land, sea, and air, and uncover the secrets of the Yanrana Culture and how it came to end.
