Last year, I sat down with Suncrash's Tomer Barkan to discuss their early access title Judgment: Apocalypse Survival Simulation, the development scene in Israel, and the challenges of developing an ambitious game in such a small country with a very small team.

Finding out if you're compatible with someone COULD be done over a quiet conversation at dinner. However, what if, instead, you found out how well you mesh with someone over an evening of clobbering monsters instead with Roguemance, a procedurally-generated RPG about finding love through combat and adventuring?

Animal adventures have been a staple across fiction, from the recent Tooth & Tail, or Fables, or Redwall. But rather than war or urban fantasy or a medieval setting, Backbone places its trenchcoat-wearing animals on neon-lit pixel-art streets and within atmospheric detective noir.

If you have a special someone in your life, today would be a good day to engage in some... activities together. And if you don't, you could try finding someone on the internet - or even do it on your own, but that's not quite as satisfying.

In other words, it's a good day to play some Hacktag, the co-op two player stealth game which has just snuck out of Early Access.
