Reformed digital platform GOG.com has added another slew of titles, both old and brand new, this week. A total of 5 games have come up on our radar.
The first and newest title is Unmechanical. This indie title based on the Unreal Engine 3 offers a remarkable atmosphere with just a touch of darkness and a cel-shaded look. A small flying robot will need to solve tricky problems and move diligently throughout this puzzle adventure. The side-scrolling feature has a variety of different and unique conundrums for the puzzle fan. Unmechanical is available for $8.99 for now.
The second newly released title is a rhythm game called Symphony. In this rhythmical shooting gallery, you’ll battle against fearsome demons that have ensnared your music, as you fend off bullet hell to liberate your tunes. It’s quite like the shooter Beat Hazard, for those that know it. Except, in Symphony you’ll fight in a vertical spectrum mostly. It’s possible to upgrade skills and unlock hidden weaponry within the music. More so, as with Beat Hazard, players are able to use their own music to play each track separately. Not 1 song will ever play the same. Yours truly is partial to Beat Hazard as one of the exceptions that do rhythm games well, so if Symphony is anything like it, it should definitely be worth the $9.99.
Runaway 3: A Twist of Fate is a slightly older title, being released sometime last year. This is one of PenduloStudios’ adventure games; their go-to genre of choice. It’s an adventure in cel-shaded style with tons of action, humor and a ridiculous plot. It features 6 chapters and over 120 locations to explore, along with almost 8,000 lines of spoken dialogue. It’s the priciest release that’s been added, at a tag of $19.99. The developer is also still looking for the majority of funding of their newest project, Day One. The adventure game currently onGamesplanet Lab is still a long way short of the €300K needed to fund it. You can pledge here.
Some of you may remember the strange title, The Ball. As an archeologist, you get stuck in some ancient ruins, before realizing that this strange ball has weird powers. This starts your adventure filled with physics puzzles, insightful environments and hordes of enemies. The Ball is a bit of everything: It’s a first person puzzle game, but also features gore and guts and the ability to manipulate your ball in many ways. Right now, you can purchase it for $8.99.
Our last offering is a game from 2004 called Nexus: The Jupiter Incident. As the name may suggest, this is a space simulation that makes good use of the current revival in the genre. You’ll be able to witness the vastness of space in over 20 missions, as you expand your fleet all over the galaxy. Naturally, this will come with tactical space battles filled with lasers and explosions, per your attention span. It’s available right now for $9.99.
