Spotlight Sunday - Week 7 - 2015

Spotlight Sunday is a way for Choicest Games to feature PC games that are scheduled for release on the following week - games that we consider worthwhile checking out.

So which games do I think are worth checking out next week (9th Feb to the 15th Feb 2015)? There's only two this week but here are my picks:


  • Release Date: 9 February 2015
  • Availability: Steam for Free
I really like the concept of bringing the board game of Cluedo into a computer game format. Or something along the lines of an Agatha Christie murder mystery. Basically someone is the murderer in the group and it's up to the rest to determine who that person is before it's too late. This is why I enjoyed the concept of the game The Ship although sadly despite me purchasing the game, I don't think actually many people still play it and I was unable to recruit any of my friends to give it a go (despite giving them free copies). Enter the Free-to-Play title HIT which seems very similar in premise to The Ship although it seems to be taking its styling cues from Team Fortress 2 i.e. 70s spy flick. Like a card game I've played before called The Resistance, this game has a majority of the players trying to co-operate and achieve a goal but one of the team is actually an impostor, a spy, who will do his/her best to sabotage the team's attempts at completing their objective. It sounds like good fun and hopefully the game will be a big success for the guys at Shifty Chair Games.

If this guy isn't based off Colonel Mustard then my name is Professor Plum


Arguably the biggest release for next week is Evolve - a sci-fi co-op shooter by the guys that brought us Left 4 Dead, Turtle Rock Studios. I love co-op shooters, and the Left 4 Dead series is a damn good one. I also love sci-fi which is why I really loved Alien Swarm as well. Evolve seems to be inspired by both of these games so how could it fail? The only thing that is making me put the brakes on pre-ordering is the price. At $79.99 USD on Steam, that's pretty steep - especially considering you can get both Left 4 Dead games at half that price...

What's that coming over the hill - is it a monster? IS IT A MON-STER?!

So are you interested or excited about any of these PC games being released next week? Which games are you looking forward to?
