Spotlight Sunday - Week 5 - 2016

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 (1st January to the 7th January 2016) there are, once again, five games that I think are worth checking out; once again there's a big AAA title being released along with some interesting indie games:


  • Release Date: 02/02/2016
  • Availability: Steam - Not available for pre-order
There are a lot of puzzle games on Steam but what makes this one different is that it's a multiplayer puzzle game where you collaborate with other players on physics puzzles. What's also neat is that the game is cross-platform in that you can even play with friends that run the game on mobile. Also, the game has a "universal communication tool" which allows you to communicate with other players in 19 languages. Considering it's won a few game awards and has been described by a reviewer to be "the only game to ever make me consider my relationship with humanity", sounds like one to watch.

Steve Jackson's Sorcery! Parts 1 and 2

  • Release Date: 03/02/2016
  • Availability: Steam - Not available for pre-order
I was a big fan of gamebooks and "Choose Your Own Adventures" back in the day. In fact, I'm pretty sure I still have a Fighting Fantasy gamebook lying somewhere back at my parents' place. So when I hear that one of Steve Jackson's gamebooks is being converted into a game, you bet I'm going to take notice.

Agatha Christie - The ABC Murders

  • Release Date: 04/02/2016
  • Availability: Steam - $23.99 USD, GOG - $27.29
I always love a good murder mystery and you won't get a more classic murder mystery than one from an Agatha Christie novel. Agatha Christie - The ABC Murders seems to be your typical point 'n' click adventure although what has got me excited is the fact that when collecting information from suspects you have to pay special attention to what they say, how they say it and how they feel.


This game made it on the Choicest Games Top 10 Most Anticipated PC Games of 2016 list. 'Nuff said.

Red Comrades Save the Galaxy: Reloaded

  • Release Date: 06/01/2016
  • Availability: Steam - Not available for pre-order
I love point 'n' click adventures and this is actually one that was from the 1990s that I've never heard of before - probably because it was developed by a Russian studio. It seems to have a zany sci-fi plot and I'm curious to see if the game is any good or whether the humour is lost in translation.

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