2. Genesis Alpha One

Step into the spacesuit of a starship captain on a mission to find a new home for humankind in Radiation Blue’s roguelike FPS.

3. 8-Bit Hordes

Petroglyph’s 8-Bit Hordes is a medieval RTS strategy-arcade game that’s easy to pick up for players at any skill level. Rally your troops of orcs or humans as you collect resources, command mythical creatures and defend your base. There’s loads of fun to be had in single-player missions but make sure to check out the PvP multiplayer modes for the extra competitive.

4. Fractured Minds

If you’re on the hunt for something short and meaningful, Fractured Minds is one to look out for. This BAFTA-winning puzzle game explores the daily struggles of people suffering from mental health issues. You must collect items or solve puzzles to move on to new levels where each room represents a different aspect of mental illness.

5. Drowning

This walking simulator by Polygonal Wolf puts you in the shoes of a high school boy suffering from depression. Journey through beautiful low-poly environments as you explore a story with multiple endings to discover. It’s a short game, but its compelling narrative may stick with you for a while.

Tom Clancy’s The Division 2

Washington D.C. is on the brink of ruin, and you’re its last line of defence in Ubisoft’s open-world RPG shooter. The Division 2’s D.C. is a 1:1 representation of the real city, so if you’ve never had the chance to visit, do some sightseeing while you’re at it. Just try not to get killed…

Days Gone

You’re Deacon St. John, an outlaw biker gone bounty hunter who’s trying to survive a post-pandemic America. Explore Bend Studio’s action-packed world on your trusty motorbike, but watch out for ruthless gangs and Freakers who evolve and adjust to their surroundings. You better stock up on traps and weapons to stay alive.
