NYKRA – September 27 (PC)

NYKRA – from developer ENDESGA – is a short sci-fi story that is driven by its narrative as you explore ancient and abandoned planets while searching for the meaning of your existence. In development for over eight years, the gorgeous pixel art alone could be worth it. NYKRA is available now on PC through Steam.

Steel Assault – September 28 (PC, Switch)

Relive the arcade’s glory days in Steel Assault, from developer Zenovia Interactive.

The action-packed 16-bit platformer is designed for speedrunners and can be completed in about an hour. Steel Assault is now available on Nintendo Switch and PC via To smoke.

A Juggler’s Tale – September 29 (PS4, XB1, Switch, PC)

A Juggler’s Tale – from developer kaleidoscube – is certainly the most moving title of the week. You will play as Abby, a young girl who escapes from her captive life in search of her freedom, while taking on puzzles in the harsh outside world. What makes this game unique is that all the characters are string puppets whose story is told by a puppeteer / narrator. A Juggler’s Tale is particularly impactful if you’re a parent, so be sure to check it out when it releases September 29 for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam.
