Broken Roads is a narrative-rich, isometric, turn-based role-playing game that takes players to a post-apocalyptic Western Australia. Players will shape their own path along four different philosophical paths: Humanist, Utilitarian, Machiavellian, and Nihilist characteristics, with each decision affecting future choices, quests, and reactions from the people they meet.
Age of Darkness: Final Stand
Launching into Steam early access on 7th October, Age of Darkness: Final Stand embraces everything fans love from the survival RTS genre with a dark fantasy twist. The game utilises ‘SwarmTech’, internally developed technology allowing up to 70,000 enemies to be rendered on-screen in-game at any point, and with each run offering up a unique experience, players will find themselves pulled back into The Veil time and time again.
Thymesia is a punishing action RPG that sees players step into the shoes of Corvus, a half-human, half-raven hybrid with the ability to reave plague weapons from his enemy and use them to devastating effect. Fighting through a plague-ravaged world, Corvus’ use of precise parries and ferocious attacks will be needed in order to survive the plague-ridden world and recover Corvus’ lost memories when it launches on Steam on 7th December.
Batora: Lost Haven
Set following the events of a global disaster on Earth, Batora: Lost Haven is launching on PC and consoles in 2022 and will take players on an emotive adventure across the stars, with a rich and branching narrative of choice and consequence that will change the destiny of the universe. Batora: Lost Haven also combines hack & slash and twin-stick shooter combat mechanics tied to separate physical and mental health bars for deep strategic and tactical gameplay.
Greak: Memories of Azur
Available now on PC, Nintendo Switch, and next-gen consoles, Greak: Memories of Azur sees players join siblings Greak, Adara, and Raydel as they fight to escape their homeland from a deadly invasion in this enchanting puzzle platformer accompanied by hand-drawn art and animation, and a live orchestral soundtrack.

Alien Breed (Original port)

Honey, I Joined a Cult
As architects of a new and groovy cult, players design everything from the ground up, from the deity they worship to the location of the energy spa; no detail is too small for the cult leader to decide. Running a lucrative cult is no easy feat though: the leader’s ego, local law enforcement, government agencies, and angry protestors all threaten the all-important bottom line if not managed correctly. Honey, I Joined a Cult is currently available in Steam Early Access.
Available on PC and current-gen consoles, Blasphemous will see players trapped in an endless cycle of death, joining the Penitent One as he hacks and slashes his way through Cvstodia, attempting to free himself of his anguish.
