Truly, this week's Trailer Roundup has been cursed. Some nasty database gremlins ate the first draft. And ten the second one. But third time's the charm, so please sit back and enjoy owls, emperors, and galactic conquest.

Eagle Island
Windows, OSX, Linux | $12.40 | July 2018 | Kickstarter

A procedurally generated platformer where you throw a freaking owl at things? Sign me up. And the game is pretty, too! (Not convinced? Why not try the demo?)

Nova Drift
Windows, OSX | $8 | January 2018 | Kickstarter

Nova Drift looks like a new take on the good old Asteroids formula. It lets you upgrade your ship in various ways and allows for rapid iteration or experimentation with new builds.

Lethis - Daring Discoverers
Systems TBA | $TBA | Release TBA

This interplanetary exploration game with choose-your-own-adventure elements lets you play as a a granny with a blunderbuss. And that is really all you need to know.

The Egdelands
Windows | $TBA | May 9, 2017

From developer Marshlight Software: "The Edgelands is a narrative adventure in which players explore a rustic twilight world where modern life mingles with real and imagined folklore. It has echoes of point and click adventures and references to Infocom era Interactive Fiction."

Empathy: Path of Whispers
Windows | $TBA | May 16, 2017

According to developer Pixel Night, Empathy takes place "in a surreal world, made from people's emotions and memories, which you can manipulate and explore. Those lost memories are the key to rebuilding the crumbling world back to its former state, discovering its mysterious past and halting the impending apocalypse."

Renowned Explorers: The Emperor's Challenge
Windows, OSX, Linux | $TBA | May 10, 2017

This second expansion for Abbey Games' lovely exploroguelike offers a new location as well as a host of new characters for your team. A new game mode called the Emperor's Challenge will also be available, shaking things up even more.

Dynasty Feud
Windows | $TBA | May 23, 2017

Dynasty Feud pits cowboys against vikings! Cats against cavemen! Space people against knights! You get the idea! This competitive, team-based, fast-paced platform brawler for 2-4 players can be played locally or online.

Dawn of Andromeda
Windows | $29.99 | Available now

A rather intriguing-looking 4X game from a small Portuguese team, Dawn of Andromeda ticks all the right boxes for me. Pausable real time gameplay, non-instanced combat, and the option to set wildly varying starting conditions for your spacefaring civilization make this one sound pretty interesting.
