Role, time loops, roguelikes and many puzzles
Some of the titles require little presentation. Mass Effect Legendary Edition is the compilation and remastering of the original BioWare RPG trilogue, which includes the three original installments and the DLC with a renewed visual section and playable improvements. Spelunky 2 is the sequel to roguelike Derek Yu’s platformer, a title as brilliant as it is difficult. Outer Wilds (which was in the catalog a while ago) is a title of exploration and puzzles in a time loop that takes us to a solar system that collapses every 22 minutes; its mysteries and clever game design have won it several accolades.
With more time behind him, but just as brilliant, he is Gorogoa, a short and beautiful puzzle game based on the composition of vignettes to create new images. Also of puzzles is The Pedestrian, which stands out for its visual originality: the character moves through the signs, blackboards and other elements of a photorealistic city.
Olija is an adventure of platforms and two-dimensional action that stands out for its immediacy and its pixel-art. Embr is a cooperative game with a humorous tone where the players control a few more clumsy firefighters of the account. The Anacrusis, which comes in early access, is also cooperative: it’s new from one of the creators of Left 4 Dead, and promises to take the Director of the shooter de Valve.
