Rocket League: Rocket League is undoubtedly the star of the show having received an incredible reception in its beta. Imagine a cross between FIFA and Destruction Derby. Interested yet? Well it also supports cross-play between PC and PS4, runs on dedicated servers, supports 4 player splitscreen and 8 player online, oh and you can play as Twisted Metal’s beloved Sweet Tooth. Rocket League is the new action-sports game from Psyonix and is a sequel to the fantastically fun Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars.
Styx: Master of Shadows: If for some reason you aren’t finding yourself playing Rocket League for every waking moment of the day then maybe you can try this stealth adventure game that acts as a prequel to 2012’s ‘Of Orcs and Men’. You’ll get to play as the titular Styx, the first goblin, who seeks to steal the heart of the World Tree.
Mousecraft: Mousecraft is a puzzle adventure from Curve Studios that asked the question, “What if we crossed Lemmings with Tetris?”. Help the mice get from A to Cheese with the help of a mad scientist crafting out a path with “Tetronimos”.
Rain: This is an adventure game that oozes charm. You play a boy trying to save an invisible girl who can only be seen by the silhouette she creates in the rain. Being pursued by strange beasts known as the Unknown the boy discovers that he too is invisible. Players will use the visibility of the boy and the creatures to solve a variety of puzzles.
Entwined: Entwined breaks the laws of a nature as you control a bird and a fish who are in love but this modern day Romeo and Juliet can never be together. Testing your hand-eye co-ordination it’s your job to simultaneously guide them through multiple lifetimes until their souls can unite. It won’t be one for everyone but it has a beautiful style and sound so if you like art games you should love this one.
Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions: What’s there to say about this one. It’s Geometry Wars 3… go play it already (or maybe wait until July 7th).
