Spotlight Sunday - Week 15 - 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.

This week (6th Apr to the 12th Apr 2015) there's a couple of games I think are worth checking out - both are indie games:


  • Release Date: Next week
  • Availability: Steam (pre-order not available)
This game has an interesting premise. Apparently, you play the role of a teenage boy named Josh who suffers from social anxiety disorder. The game has pretty basic graphics and is a puzzle platformer but I'm curious as to how they pull off the link to social anxiety disorder or whether it's just a cheap marketing gimmick to foster interest in the game as a means to explain why your character can flip between the light and dark sides. There is a demo of the game though so you can try before you buy.

The game also comes with a level editor where you can share your creations with others, which is a nice touch.

Hero Generations

  • Release Date: 10/04/2015
  • Availability: Steam (pre-order not available), Direct $14.99 USD
One curious thing about this game is that it won an award at 2011's Indiecade which is now a few years ago but only now is it being released onto Steam. Not sure why it took so long considering it's an award-winning game. Also, the game caught my attention thanks to its description which claims it's "the offspring of Sid Meier's Civilization, Jason Rohrer's Passage and the Legend of Zelda." A pretty big claim.

Hero Generations is a rogue-like that incorporates some elements of RPGs as well as 4X strategy games. Apparently each turn represents one year in your character's life. You can choose to either increase your fame during your lifetime or focus on making the world a better place for your offspring (if you manage to mate of course). All sounds pretty epic if you ask me and consequently a game worth keeping an eye on.

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