2. Guild of Duneongeering - dev Gambrinous (mobile - out this summer)
Become the ultimate Dungeon Master as you bribe, entice and coax your heroes through their adventures on a quest to restore your guild to its ultimate glory! Guild of Dungeoneering is a turn-based dungeon crawler with a twist: instead of controlling the hero you build the dungeon around him. Using cards drawn from your Guild decks, you lay down rooms, monsters, traps and of course loot! Meanwhile, your hero is making his own decisions on where to go and what to fight. But will he be strong enough to take on the dungeon's overlord? In between dungeon runs you manage your Guild, building new rooms to attract new classes of adventurers and to expand your decks of cards with more powerful items and events.
Let Them Come is a fast paced pixel art shoot 'em up coming to PC and mobile devices. Twitchy trigger fingers and focused battle tactics are the order of the day as wave after wave of alien-like creatures try to take you down. Gameplay is simple to pick up but hard to master - only the best of the best will survive to fight another day. With a variety of alien creatures to mow down and cool weapons to do it with, stylish retro backdrops and a hard rockin' soundtrack, Let Them Come is a fast and furious pixel style shooter on steroids.
4. Like-A-Boss - dev Firehorse (mobile)
Instead of being the hero, become the evil boss in Like-A-Boss, a strategic battle game that turns traditional MMORPG's on its head. Fight off pesky raiders as they try and steal your loot and take you down. Craft epic gear and upgrade your boss to grow in strength and size to earn the reputation of the ultimate raid boss to be respected and feared!
