Spirit of the North Enhanced Edition (Cloud, Console, PC)
Spirit of the North: Enhanced Edition is a third-person action adventure game inspired by the stunning and mysterious landscape of Iceland. The story is rooted in various parts of Scandinavian folklore.
Play as an ordinary red fox whose story is linked to the Guardian of the Northern Lights, a female fox spirit. As you progress over the mountains and under the red sky, you will learn about your companion and the devastated lands.
The game is unique in that it intentionally contains no dialogue or narrative. Players must draw inspiration from their surrounding environment to solve various puzzles and hypothesize about the meaning of a lost ancient civilization.
SteamWorld Build (Cloud, Console, PC)
We must exploit the Earth one last time! The planet is dying, Astrid, so dig with all your might!
The mine beneath the city appears empty, but rumor has it it contains ancient technology that could get us out of this mess. With your team, do your best and build a new property! Search for resources on the surface and ores underground to attract lucky robots who will help us build this place and leave it once and for all!
As our borders expand, you will encounter new robots. Managing bots is complex and you will have to adapt to each of them to make them move forward in full force. Swap items to maximize efficiency, keep goods flowing to and from the mine, and keep everyone happy and motivated.
