Coming out for IOS this spring, available now for Windows Phone 8."

Alaska by Andrew Haining: "First Person Immersive Sim. You play a detective on a space station and must solve a recent murder."
Dungeon Rally by Slothwerks: "deck-building puzzle RPG' inspired by deck-building games like Dominion and classic mobile puzzle RPGs like Dungeon Raid. You spend gold to buy units/items for your 'deck' and try to stop the enemies from destroying your town." (playable here)
Friction by Duende Games: " you fly though outer space fighting unearthly enemy ships using your powerful laser gun. However, the gun can only be used once it is charged up, and the only way to charge it is to risk life and limb by heading into close proximity with the enemy bullets."
Paragon by -BipolarDesign+: "a game about navigating your ball around mazes, collecting shiny things, and narrowly escaping deadly spikes. Jump off of rails with precise timing to gather all the treasures, while avoiding death via impalement."
Let's Go Gamping! by Steamburger Studios: "an upcoming FPS roguelike(lite) dungeon crawler, whereby dungeons are reached by hiking, camping, and surviving a vast overworld wilderness."
StarCrawlers by Juggernaut Games: "a sci-fi dungeon-crawling RPG. Run a crew of talented fixers taking shady jobs on the fringes of space where your choices dynamically change the way you explore the environment, fight your foes, resolve encounters, and how your story ultimately unfolds."
Luna's Wandering Stars by Serenity Forge: "a planetary physics action-puzzle game, where you get to control 9 different space powers. It also comes with a level creator and online level sharing."
Into this Wylde Abyss by Richard Whitelock: " a short procedurally generated game about an adventurer struggling to survive on a freezing island and what happens in their final hours. Inspired by the dangerous sublime and Paradise Lost."
Temporus by Erik Umenhofer: "a space game about the destruction of your civilization. You have to salvage, explore and fight your way through the debris to try and set right what has occurred. It will span the 2D Platformer and Side Scrolling Shooter genres and feature puzzles, lasers, jellyfish and time travel."
