Death Hall

Run for your life and escape the Death Hall in this diabolical platform-hell game. Avoid an evil monster along with all manner of nasty traps and critters, as you make a bee-line for the exit. Will you make it out alive?
There’s also a mysterious merchant who lurks in the caves between levels, to offer you special items for the journey ahead. But who is he exactly and what is he up to? There’s only one way to find out.

Ring of Pain

Ring of Pain blends the modern roguelike (Binding of Isaac, Enter the Gungeon) with a turn-based card game, set in a world distorted by your mind.
It’s a dungeon crawler where each level is dealt from decks of cards, and the levels dynamically adjust based on player actions.

Collect items, discover your purpose, and choose wisely.

Wayward Strand

Visit Website
Wayward Strand

Wayward Strand is a touching, empathetic narrative game, woven together from many distinct threads, all of which play out simultaneously aboard an airborne hospital in 1970s Australia. In Wayward Strand you play as Casey Beaumaris, a teenage girl visiting the hospital for the first time. Over the course of three days, she will explore the history of the ship, the lives of its inhabitants, and their relationships to one another.

During the three days Casey spends on the ship, the characters around her live out their own stories - stories which she can investigate. Each character moves and acts of their own accord, on their own timeline - sharing news with each other, opinions; arguing; joking; gossiping - or having a chat with Casey when she comes by.


Wrestledunk Sports

Wrestledunk Sports

Wrestledunk Sports is a Super tight, fast, fun, multiplayer arcade-style collection of sports! Designed to be really quick to get into, but have lots of depth. Crunchslam opponents in the minimalist-fighting-game-type Wrestling, or lay down spikes in the technical, fast-paced Volleyball. Maybe precision strikes in the shifting arcade levels of fencing is more your jam - or go straight for light speed hyper-pong in space with Smashball. Co-op or competitive, you might as well just try them all. Get your Wrestledunk on!
