Lighthearted, goody fun no matter what your age.
Space Cows is physics-based action puzzler in zero gravity. You play as Best Regards - caretaker on a space milk station in a world where milk is the ultimate power source. It was all fancy-dandy till crashy-bangy mysterious accident. Now cargo is a mess, gravity is acting up and cows are upset. On top of it, an alien infestation is spreading through the station. Wibble wobble through the wreckage, save mad cows and fight aliens because The Milk Must Flow.
Ava Airborne is a window into an uncomplicated, silly and innocent world with a simple story at its heart - one girl’s unshakable belief that she can overcome gravity. It’s a positive outlook on lonesome and childlike imagination, as Ava travels across a deserted coastline with nothing for company but her own ideas. What if I try to fly with an umbrella? What if I make myself some wings? What if I jump off a springboard? Everything plays as though it is a vivid, exciting daydream. Each game ends once Ava falls to the floor - the harsh logic of reality has again claimed its grip on her. But until that fateful moment, Ava is the defiant dreamer - free as a bird - with a world of possibilities ahead of her.
Steel Rats is a visceral and groundbreaking evolution of the 2.5D action arcade genre, fusing destructive, octane-fuelled motorbike combat and death-defying stunt gameplay, set in a visually stylised retro future world. Become one with your bike as you master the realistic physics based controls of these powerful and deadly vehicles.
Shift Quantum is a cyber-noir action-puzzle platformer in black and white, with a unique gameplay mechanic called SHIFTING.
