Spotlight Sunday - Week 39 - 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 (21st September to the 27th September 2015) there's a three indie titles that I'm interested in and one of them is even free!:

Concrete Jungle

  • Release Date: 23/09/2015
  • Availability: Steam - Not available for pre-order (but will most likely be $16 USD)
I actually followed the development of this game quite a while back and only recently after seeing it on Steam I thought "oh wow, it's the next game by that dude which made that addictive puzzle version of SimCity game using Multimedia Fusion". The game I'm talking about is MegaCity and it's one of the best games I've seen developed using Multimedia Fusion 2. The game is available on most smartphones and you can even play it for free Flash version online. Concrete Jungle is I guess a spiritual successor of sorts to MegaCity - it's gone for the 3D isometric look and it's looking pretty sweet. The developer, ColePowered Games, actually went to Kickstarter to secure £3,000 in funding at the end of 2014 - he got much more than his goal with £13,870 being the final result. The funds were apparently used for not only financially supporting ColdPowered Games during development but for licensing music used in the game's soundtrack. Anyway definitely one to look out for and the game is apparently going to be about $16 USD on release.

Missing Translation

  • Release Date: 24/09/2015
  • Availability: Steam - Free
The game is free! AND it's an adventure game! What more else is there to say? :) Oh like another game that was released recently called Dropsy, this game apparently has no text so, as the developer puts it "Everyone can enjoy it regardless of the language they speak :D".

Else Heart.Break()

  • Release Date: 24/09/2015
  • Availability: Steam - Not available for pre-order, Humble Store - $17.49 USD
Okay, I admit - the inner software engineer in me was instantly drawn to the title of this game. Apparently this game is a "reimagination" of the adventure game and despite the funky looking graphics has you adopting Neo-like powers by changing the reality of the game through programming.

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