The tastiest brain candy to relax those tired neurons

Also Released…

What The Box?

This online multiplayer third-person shooter where everyone and everything is boxes makes for an original take on the genre. Unlike other games of this type, with a variety of characters, this version puts the player and identical opponents in maps dominated by identical cardboard boxes, with the best way of not getting killed being to blend in as much as possible. The stealth and silliness provide plenty of fun.

Selma and the Wisp

This indie puzzle-platformer puts the player in control of a Wisp, which indirectly controls Selma by guiding her through a nightmarish world. It's best to move the Wisp around with a mouse to disarm traps and scare off enemies in clearing a path for Selma and preventing her from meeting an untimely end. The concept is pretty original and makes for some nice casual gameplay.


RIVE is incredibly challenging to the point of frustration, even for a twin stick shooter, but it's also rewarding when you're in sync with the quick reflexes required. RIVE offers a lot of variety for this type of game, incorporating floating and platforming levels, puzzles to vary the pacing, and a story to keep things engaging. If you have a soft spot for classic genres, this is the game for you.
