Amazing Discoveries In Outer Space
PS4 | $ 12 | Available now

From developer Adios: "An untimely navigation computer reboot leaves you in search of your home world with limited fuel reserves. So get creative and let gravity be your guide to saving fuel. Also, don't be afraid to let your legs get some of that much needed workout as you search for clues to get you closer to home."

The Artful Escape of Francis Vendetti
OSes Unannounced | $TBA | March 1, 2016

From developer Beethoven & Dinosaur: "The Artful Escape of Francis Vendetti is an action/adventure, exploration, narrative driven, musical-laser-light-battle kind of game." It's already been greenlit for release via Steam but there's no word anywhere regarding the operating systems with which the game will be compatible.

Axes and Acres
Windows, OS X | $6 | April 2016 | Greenlight

From developer BrainGoodGames: "Axes and Acres is a deep and engaging single-player strategy game designed to create exciting decisions every turn. Axes and Acres includes elements of deck-building which allow you to strategically manage your peasants to farm, build, and survive. The rules are easy to learn, but every turn can be played out in many different ways, leading to complex and interesting choices."

Aveyond 4: Shadow Of The Mist
Windows | $9 | Available now

From developer Amaranth Games: "Boyle Wolfbane wanted to rule the world. He failed. Miserably. Forced into retirement early, Boyle now spends his days arguing with haunted trees and scaring off the occasional knight. At least he still has Fang, his loyal storm wolf. Things could be worse. He could have been born a hero."

ClusterTruck
Windows, OS X, Linux | $TBA | Fall 2016 | Alpha sign up

From developer Landfall Games: "Clustertruck is a chaotic physics based truckformer. Jump your way through insane levels in a game of "the floor is lava" on top of speeding trucks driven by terrible drivers. The game only gets harder when dangers such as swinging hammers, lasers and flamethrowers are added." They're taking sign ups for alpha testers.

Empathy
Windows, OS X | $TBA | September 2016

This game is to be a first-person walker with what appears to be an interesting setting and perhaps a bit of an Everybody's Gone to the Rapture vibe in terms of storytelling.

It's Spring Again
Windows, OS X, Linux, iOS, Android | reg. $1 | Available now

This game is based on a children's puppet play and designed to help children aged 2 to 5 help develop associational and logical thinking. However, I don't think you have to be a child to appreciate its unique aesthetic.

LiMN
iOS | Free | Available now

A free game about dancing with your iPhone. The screen goes blank when it's time to move, so the player has to remember what to do.

Rusty Lake Hotel
Windows, OS X, iOS, Android | $2 | Available now

From developer Rusty Lake: "Welcome our guests to the Rusty Lake Hotel and make sure they will have a pleasant stay. There will be 5 dinners this week. Make sure every dinner is worth dying for."

Free to play CCG Spellwaver is now out of beta and released on Steam. It takes advantage of its digital nature to enable more complex mechanics than an analog CCG can easily handle.
