Once Human

Platforms: PC, Android, iOS

Here’s another multiplayer title to keep you and your friends busy over the summer. This one is an open-world survival game that pits you and your besties against a variety of monstrous enemies. The game has been praised for its spooky atmosphere and impressive soundscape that might make you jump from your gaming chair. 

Description:

“The apocalypse changed everything. Human, animal, plant… all are infested by an alien creature – Stardust. As a Meta-Human, you can survive the contamination and use the power of Stardust. Play alone or join others to fight, build and explore. When the world is in chaos, you are our last hope.

You wake up in the middle of nowhere. You’ll have to brace yourself for the cruelty of nature (from monsters to lack of food); however, Stardust’s influence does not restrict to living things, it also affects the soil and water. Eating polluted food and drinking dirty water will reduce your Sanity. When your Sanity drops, your max HP would drop accordingly. To eat or not to eat, it’s a question.

Battle numerous enemies that are once human, and challenge bosses from another dimension to gain powerful items and ease Stardust pollution. You are not only fighting for yourself, but also fighting for the survivors.” (source)

Bō: Path of the Teal Lotus

Platforms: PC, Switch, PS5, Xbox Series X/S

This game has been compared to Okami due to its colourful art style and similar music score. The gameplay is markedly different, however, being more of a platformer than a contemplative action-adventure title. By the looks of it, this could be quite a tricky game to play, but let us know how you get on with it in the comments below. 

Description:

“Flow with acrobatic grace and agility through a mysterious world of myth and legend in Bō: Path of the Teal Lotus, a colorful hand-drawn adventure inspired by Japanese folklore.

Undertake a mystical journey as Bō, a celestial blossom (fox tentaihana) descended from the heavens to play a key role in an ancient and mysterious ritual. Use your legendary bō staff to bounce and glide fluidly through an otherworldly realm of hand-drawn, dreamlike landscapes, strange and adorable yokai, and massive monsters summoned from ancient legends of Japan.” (source)

Nobody Wants To Die

Platforms: PC, PS5, Xbox Series X/S

This stylish future-noir detective game may well be one of the best games of the summer. Graphically, it’s very strong, and with an immersive world to get lost in, you might want to rename it Nobody Wants To Live In The Real World!

Description:

“Lose yourself in the world of New York, 2329, where immortality comes at a price that someone has to pay. Following a near-death experience, Detective James Karra takes an off-the-books case from his chief with only the help of a young police liaison, Sara Kai, to assist him. Time reveals all as they risk everything in pursuit of a killer, uncovering the dark secrets of the city’s elite.

Experience a noir adventure in an alternate future of New York City in 2329; technology has advanced to offer humans eternal life, allowing consciousness to be stored in memory banks or transferred from one body to another. That is, if you can afford the subscription.

See through the eyes of Mortality Department Detective James Karra on his hunt for a serial killer who targets the city’s elite citizens. Investigate crime scenes using his time manipulation augmentation and advanced technology to reconstruct events leading up to each murder and uncover clues that lead to the horrifying truth behind the murders.” (source)

There are dungeons to explore, with enemies to defeat and puzzles to get your head around, so you can’t hang around all day chatting to the locals.

Description:

“A big tourism industry has sprung up around the village of Hinterberg and its magical dungeons full of monsters and Alpine mythical creatures. Dungeons of Hinterberg is an action-adventure RPG set around this new tourist hotspot in the idyllic Austrian Alps.

Official Description:

“Step into the boots of Nor Vanek, an elite member of the Coalition army, joined by Enki, a mysterious fox-like companion, in their quest for vengeance against the Gods.
