Spotlight Sunday - Week 33 - 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 (10th August to the 16th August 2015), there are only two games that have really caught my interest and both of them are heavily influenced by PC gaming/hacking culture:


  • Release Date: 11/08/2015
  • Availability: Steam - Not available for pre-order
While this kind of game has been done before I believe (i.e. a rouge-like FPS) I've never seen one done with what looks like ASCII graphics. Taking a Tron approach to the plot (you're a "lowly @ symbol" inside the RNG or Random Number Generator) this should be an interesting take on the niche genre.


  • Release Date: 12/08/2015
  • Availability: Steam - Not available for pre-order
There have been quite a few so-called "hacking" games coming onto Steam in recent years so what's so different about this one? Well this one from the start claims it's meant to be closer to real-life hacking than the Hollywood version of it. For example, you'll have to use actual UNIX commands. Also, the game's soundtrack is apparently comprised of "killer tunes" including music by Carpenter Brut (who composed music for Hotline Miami 2). What's even better is this is yet another game made in Australia, just like Submerged which featured last week. Nice.

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