Spotlight Sunday - Week 35 - 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 (24th August to the 30th August 2015), there's only really one game that has caught my interest and it's in a genre of its own:

Dead in Bermuda

  • Release Date: 27/08/2015
  • Availability: Steam - Not available for pre-order
This game is made by a French developer that has been around since 2005 called CCCP. They apparently tend to focus on educational games but they do have another (non-educational) game on Steam called Hospital Manager which received Mixed reviews. Criticisms centred around the game feeling like a mobile port, i.e. it's too shallow and more like a Theme Hospital lite. Now they're planning to release a game that's probably also very mobile friendly but I'm more optimistic about this one. Dead in Bermuda reminds me of games like Zafehouse Diaries or Gods Will be Watching where the game is all about managing people in order to survive.

The game focuses on the eight survivors of a plane crash that are trying to uncover the mysteries surrounding the island and apparently plays as a mixture of Choose-Your-Own-Adventure and RPG (as the survivors all have skills they can improve and stats to worry about like hunger, fatigue and depression).

I love non-linear, turn-based games that focus on relationships between party members so this one looks like it could be worth a look.

The game is not available for pre-order for Australians but is available for $12.74 USD so it'll probably be that much on Steam too.

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