Enter the AI arena and fight evil artificial intelligences with a variety of weapons and modifications. AIPD is a top-down coop twin-stick shooter with a visual style that is an homage to 80s neon art styles, pioneered by games like Minestorm on the Vectrex console system or feature films like TRON.

Enjoy thousands of possible combinations of enemy and arena permutations that give you an unprecedented and nearly unlimited arcade experience. Enjoy the neon graphics of AIPD using the power of Unreal Engine 4 to its limits, combined with a slamming soundtrack and overwhelming sound effects. Choose between weapons like the powerful howitzer, the devastating shotgun or the precise phaser for point attacks.

In AIPD you can choose your favorite combination of game mechanic modules and fight action driven coop battles with up to four players on one screen. Enjoy the freedom to create your own experience and adjust the game to suit your needs and skill level.

Cubot - The Complexity of Simplicity
Size: 348.63 MB
Price: US$1.99/ £1.59 / €1.99
At first sight, Cubot is a puzzle-game with a minimalist gameplay, just move color cubes towards tiles of the same color. It's really easy, but it will be a torture for your mind to complete all levels of the game because the apparent simplicity of the game is in contradiction with the complexity of the puzzles. Moreover, an important point in the gameplay is if you have multiple cubes, they move simultaneously!

- Easy gameplay, just move cubes... that's it!
- Simplistic but not repetitive, use different elements to achieve your goal: buttons, elevators, color swappers, teleporters...
- The game and menus have a clean look to not disturb your concentration. In the same vein, the music is very soothing.
- There are 80 levels for several hours of playing to keep you challenged.
- The challenge increases level by level. If you are stumped, help is available!

Unepic is a mixture of platform game, role game and joke that takes place in a huge castle of medieval fantasy.
It is set in the eighty's style, but completed with the most actual features.

The hero is called Daniel, a normal guy from today: great videogame player, big lover of sci-fi movies and novice player of role games. In the middle of a role game with his friends, he is teleported to a castle and he thinks that he is having a massive hallucination. So he decides to run his own adventure until the hallucination ends.

In the castle, he will be possessed by a shadow, however this shadow cannot control him (being able only talk).
The only way of the shadow to escape from the Hero’s body is by the death of the Hero, so the shadow will lie
all the time giving false clues always looking for the Daniel’s death.
