This weekend was busier than the last, with three times the amount of announcements over the same period of time. That isn't saying a lot, though, if you bear in mind we only had two titles last week. Amongst the six games are the opportunity to breed jellies, the need to dispose of bodies, kart racing, and a bid to save a princess. You can take a closer look at them all below.
Vakman is bringing their "relaxing adventure RPG" to unspecified consoles thanks to publisher CIRCLE Entertainment. Players take up residence on Wimba Island where they're tasked with taming, breeding and raising wild jellies, each of which has their own unique stats and traits. Players can use alchemy to make special items or alter existing items to give their jellies powerful abilities before entering into competitions to win prizes. Along the way, there will also be people to meet, secrets to discover, and quests to fulfil. The title is due to arrive in 2019.
In Empyrean and Fat Dog Games' "gruesome dead body disposal game", players have to do exactly that. Before the cops arrive, you need to hide the body, deter nosy onlookers, get rid of the evidence and make sure no mess is left behind. While you'll need to use proper tools and do a thorough job, you also can't take your time because the police will be arriving soon, and you need to be gone before then. Each successful job will reward money that players can use to buy better equipment, like lockpicks, or weighted body bags, or even a parachute for those quick getaways. The title will be arriving on Xbox One in the future.
Dynamic Voltage's side-scrolling shoot 'em up takes place in a universe where only a single sun remains and all remaining life flocks towards it. A fleet of warships known as the Final Star Armada were tasked with guarding the sun, but when the Manakroid decide to invade the universe instead of trying to co-exist within it, the Armada was destroyed. Now the Manakroid are in charge, and the fight for survival just became far more intense. The game will be shooting its way onto Xbox One in December.
Black Delta's "extreme kart racing sim" pits players against 20 other drivers as they race for a place on the podium across "fully recreated" licensed circuits from around the world. Of course, karts don't have suspension so you'll feel every bump and kerb as you make your way around the track. Players will be able to customise their karts and drivers with gear from official brands before taking on either the AI or other players online. The game has just entered Early Access on PC but will be coming to Xbox One in Q3 2019 thanks to publisher IMGN.Pro.
AweKteam has teamed up with Square Enix Collective to bring their title to Xbox One. Inspired by classic action titles and 3D platformers, the game takes the tried and tested "knight enters in the dungeon, rescues the princess and kills the Dragon" trope and takes it a bit further. Yes, you still have to rescue the prince/princess from all of the monsters and traps, but you also have to date him/her and earn his/her love. Every time players enter the dungeon, the loot, dangers, dungeon layout, prince/princess, and even the main character will change, meaning players will need to switch up their tactics to be successful. Players will also be able to team up with others to take on the dungeon in co-op mode. The game is a little way off, not due to arrive until early 2020, but I'm sure we'll hear more about it before then.
The world of Grimwood Team's game sounds idyllic. Players have their own home, garden, back yard complete with rocking chair, an unlimited supply of fireworks, and even their own amusement park. It seems too good to be true, and there's this constant nagging feeling that something might just go wrong. It's a game... of course it all goes wrong. With the illusion shattered, players now have to find out what's really going on in the world. Thanks to publisher E-Home Entertainment, the game will be arriving on Xbox One and Windows 10 as a Play Anywhere title on November 22nd.
