An interesting sounding few titles this week!

Fret Nice - 1200MSP
Rock on and harmonize the unity between music and 2D platformer! Jam along on a guitar controller in this rocking action game. As you control your character through the artful stages, you play the game as if it was a jammin’ rock song. Blast your enemies with riff combos and create your own soundtracks with each “strum” of a chord. You will have an ever-changing experience each time a stage is repeated.
Greed Corp - 800MSP
The first in a series of games based in the rich Mistbound universe, Greed Corp is set in a world of feudal warfare and environmental destruction through industrial consumption. As one of four warring factions, your aim is territorial domination; but at what cost? Can you find the delicate balance between harvesting the land for resources and preserving it to stay alive? Will you defend your territory or sacrifice it to keep it out of enemy hands?
Featuring an innovative land collapsing mechanic which constantly alters the strategic landscape, you must destroy your enemies or the very land they stand on before they do it to you. Build Harvesters to reap your land for credits and spend them on armouries and cannons. Manufacture walkers to conquer enemy territory and order carriers to transport your troops across the map. Ultimately, defeat your enemies by eliminating their troops and destroying or capturing their structures.
Lazy Raiders - 800MSP
Dr. Diggabone's so lazy he won't even walk...but that's not stopping him from coveting 16 priceless lost relics. That's where you come in! Spin and flip ancient mazes to send this "lazy raider" tumbling after fortune and glory (and an early retirement), all the while outwitting greedy thieves, dodging pesky minions and evading deadly traps.
These will be available to download from Wednesday.
