And they are:
Guwange - 800 MSP
Guwange is a vertical scrolling shooting game, launched in Japanese arcades in 1999. Set in the Muromachi period of Japanese history, Guwange tells the tale of the "Shikigami users", hosts to ghostly avatars called Shikigami. Unlike other CAVE shooting games, known for their fighter craft and destructive machinery, the heroes of Guwange walk across the demonic landscape on their quest to rid themselves of the Shikigami curse, cutting a swath through enemies.
Players choose from one of three characters: Shishin, Kosame and Gensuke, on a journey to slay the evil god of Mt. Gokumon, Guwange itself. Accompanying them are their Shikigami familiars: Rikiou, Yatsuhisha and Kirinmaru.
Each character has their own story, ending and dramatic touches, giving the world of Guwange a distinctive Japanese flair.Faery: Legends of Avalon - 1200 MSP
Faery: Legends of Avalon is a Role Playing / Adventure game packed with an original and unique atmosphere, and a graphics design close to illustration. The game immerses players in a fantasy world inhabited by many colourful characters and magical creatures.

Throughout the adventure, the player will customize his avatar thanks to a unique system changing not only the whole look of the character in every detail, but also its spells and special abilities.
The player will recruit various companions during his journey to assist him in his mission, and he will be given the chance to explore mythical places full of magic such as the World Tree, the famous 'Flying Dutchman' ghost ship, and many others, in order to try to understand why the Kingdom of Avalon is dying.
