Spotlight Sunday - Week 10 - 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 (7th March to the 13th March 2016) there are way too many interesting games coming out that I had to effectively make a shortlist. This meant Early Access games like Block'hood and Labyrinth didn't make the cut (although Early Access games normally don't anyway on Spotlight Sundays) and neither did Alekhine's Gun, Caravanserail, Kelvin and the Infamous Machine or Star Realms. So the four games I think are worth considering next week are:


  • Release Date: 08/03/2016
  • Availability: Steam - Not available for pre-order, Direct - $14.99 USD, GOG - $20.99
If you want new, retro-style point 'n' click adventures, Wadjet Eye Games is one of the best companies out there that develops and publishes these sort of games. It seems that they're about to release another one called Shardlight which takes place in a post-apocalyptic setting.

If you're not sure on whether to get the game, there's a free demo you can try out. There's no pricing for the Steam version yet but I suspect it'll be around $14.99 USD.

The Next World

  • Release Date: 08/03/2016
  • Availability: Steam - Not available for pre-order
The concept behind this game sounds intriguing because it's similar to an idea I've had for a while with respect to visual novel games, i.e. a sci-fi visual novel game with strategy elements. The game basically tells the story of a bunch of colony ship survivors trying to make a new life on the wrong planet (the ship crash landed). It's up to you to manage the colony's limited resources in order to survive.

Tom Clancy's The Division

This game needs little introduction but here's what it's about anyway: The Division is meant to be some military unit in the United States that is activated once a pandemic sweeps the city of New York which descends into chaos. As a member of the Division, it's your job to restore order to the city and do so by partnering up with friends in PvE zones or in the PvP Dark Zone, where rogue agents might be out to get your epic loot.

Panzermadels: Tank Dating Simulator

  • Release Date: 10/03/2016
  • Availability: Steam - $Not available for pre-order
Just when you thought Hatoful Boyfriend, a game where you're a girl dating pigeons wasn't ridiculous enough, comes this game where you're a guy dating... tanks?

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