Spotlight Sunday - Week 29 - 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 (13th July to the 19th July 2015), there are four games I think are worth a look at; two of them are the results of two Kickstarter projects I've backed:

AR-K: The Great Escape

  • Release Date: 14/07/2015
  • Availability: Steam - Not available for pre-order
The first two episodes of AR-K started off as a Kickstarter project. They were released on Steam and are available for $9.99 USD although they have received a "Mixed" rating from the Steam community. This hasn't put me off though and I still want to play the game as you can never get enough new point 'n' click adventure games! (Game will get bonus points if it manages to incorporate Elmer Benstein's "The Great Escape" theme somewhere...)


  • Release Date: 15/07/2015
  • Availability: Steam - Not available for pre-order
I actually remember seeing the actual board game of this ages ago (although apparently the game I'm thinking of is one developed in the 1970s called "Anti-Monopoly"). I'm not sure how Anti-Opoly is related to Anti-Monopoly but it seems to be one in the same game. It's an interesting concept where you can choose to play the old Monopoly rules (i.e. play as a Monopolist) or play as a Competitor (and follow free enterprise rules). Sadly, it doesn't seem that the game has internet multiplayer but it does have local multiplayer for up to 6 players. Worth a look if you like board games, especially Monopoly.


  • Release Date: 15/07/2015
  • Availability: Steam - Not available for pre-order, Direct - $17.99 USD
Okay, so here is the first of the games I backed on Kickstarter that will be released in the next few days! How exciting! I'm not quite sure how I got around to backing AntharioN since it's not the usual sort of game I would back but it's a turn-based RPG so it's already got that going for it (I love turn-based games and it's so practical when you have children as you need to leave the computer for unknown periods of time) but what else is good about AntharioN. The game also allows you to create your own party so it's got that oldschool Icewind Dale or Wizardry feel to it, which isn't a bad thing at all.


  • Release Date: 17/07/2015
  • Availability: Steam - Not available for pre-order, Direct - $9.99USD
This is another Kickstarter project I backed and still not sure how I found out about it but to me it looks like a mixture of the game FTL except with the ability to control multiple ships, and explore strange new worlds and new civilizations Star Trek style. If that's not enough they've apparently got Niamh Houston (aka Chipzel) to do the soundtrack; she's worked on game soundtracks before such as Super Hexagon's.

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