Shadowrun Trilogy

As the name suggests, Shadowrun Trilogy brings together three games from the Shadowrun tabletop RPG universe, namely Shadowrun Returns, Shadowrun: Dragonfall, and Shadowrun: Hong Kong.

Compared to the original RPG created thirty years ago, the rules have been modernized to more easily meet the standards of our time.

Wreckfest

Wreckfest is a racing game where destruction takes center stage. Trying to replicate a realistic physics simulation, the game offers fierce racing on high-speed tracks where obstructing your opponents is your best weapon to win as there are no rules. To stand out from others, you have the option to customize your car, both its appearance and its armor. Of course, the game offers online multiplayer as well as a challenge mode where you can drive amazing vehicles such as buses, combine harvesters or mowers. Finally, to extend your sessions, the game also features a career mode to play championships, gain experience, and unlock new upgrades to become a Wreckfest champion.

ElecHead

ElecHead, presented during the latest Indie World, is a mix of platform and puzzle game in which we embody Elec, a little robot whose mission is to bring light back to the world. While darkness reigns, our hero, hidden deep in the factory, is able to electrify everything he touches, from walls and floors to platforms and switches. To get to distant places, he can tear off his head and throw it, but not more than ten seconds, otherwise he will die. Thanks to all these abilities, his goal will be to get out of this factory by going through different rooms filled with puzzles.

Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes

Placing your action in the universe of Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes is what’s called Musô, a beat’em up sub-genre in which you face hordes of soldiers on the battlefield that can be easily overcome with impressive punch sequences. Without knowing it, you may have already played a similar game if you tried Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity which is part of the same family of games as it is also developed by Omega Force. In addition to large-scale combat, the title uses the mechanics that made the original game a success, namely maintaining relationships with your comrades so that they are even more effective on the ground. So fans of Three Houses will be delighted to find his characters, but will also be surprised to encounter an enemy called Ash Demon, who looks like two peas in a pod to Byleth, the main character we play in the original game.
