Spotlight Sunday - Week 47 - 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 (16th November to the 22nd November 2015) again there are two games I think are worth checking out. This time however, both of these games aren't AAA titles. For this week, the two games I think are worth checking out are:

The Rivers of Alice - Extended Version

  • Release Date: 17/11/2015
  • Availability: Steam - Not available for pre-order but likely to be $7.99 USD
The Rivers of Alice started it's life as a mobile game in 2013 but we're now getting the "Extended Version" for PC. The game is a surreal, point 'n' click adventure where the player helps Alice confront the fears of everyday life such as sloth, envy and dishonesty that manifest themselves in the form of mysterious characters and puzzles. I'm still not quite sure what the difference is between the "extended version" and the normal one but it still looks interesting enough to warrant its inclusion on this list.

Last Horizon

  • Release Date: 19/11/2015
  • Availability: Steam - Not available for pre-order
I love games with space exploration, which is partly the reason why I supported the Elite: Dangerous Kickstarter project and it's also why No Man's Sky was featured as one of our most anticipated games of 2015 (but as we all know, it's not going to be coming out any time soon). Last Horizon isn't quite as big budget as the aforementioned games and the game seems to be a top-down affair similar to classic games like Solar Winds or Star Control II but all the key elements for an exploration game are there including a search for a new habitable world while juggling resources like fuel and oxygen. You also have to take care of your ship's hull integrity or else it's game over. Could be fun.
