Damsel is a single-player, fast paced, arcade-platformer game, framed in a 'Dark Disney' aesthetic with a pumping synth soundtrack. The player assumes the role of Damsel, and mysterious agent charged with the goal of saving the world from the growing vampire hordes. Players use Damsel's great agility and skills, along with her UV shotgun to clear each mission and uncover a conspiracy that will lead them around the world.

The player will discover new locations and missions as they progress through the story; as well as unlocking new abilities and upgrading current ones. Every mission has a number of side challenges to keep the player engaged, many of which are against the clock – the player must make the hard choice of going for more points, or risk losing it all by not beating the timer.

Drive!Drive!Drive! is a racing game unlike any other, where players must drive their cars to victory across multiple tracks at the same time.

Let us try to explain how this brain-melting idea works: You are able to switch between the different tracks of a race any time you like. When you switch away from a track, a computer racer takes over driving on that track for you.

Unfortunately, the AI racers aren't what you'd call competent. They are what you'd call incompetent. In other words, to place well in every track you're racing on, you're going to have to hop track-to-track on a regular basis to account for the subversively cretinous computer cars.

This Artificial Idiocy™ is uniquely powered by our Intelligent Stupidity™engine.

The year is 1941, the height of the second world war. Unbeknownst to the world, Germany has been slowly investing in biological weapons just like the United Kingdom. The cause of it all was the discovery of a meteorite that contains an extraterrestrial substance, außerirdischem. Außerirdischem seems to have the potential to be developed into a virus that can achieve mass destruction. Hence the Germans brought it back to their top-secret facility X13 for further research to develop it into a powerful biological weapon. But unbeknownst to the Germans, außerirdischem is in fact a sentient parasite, capable of infecting and taking complete control of its host.

You are außerirdischem, also known as außerir for short. As a parasite, you can only infect a single human carrier at any point in time. Take control of scientists one at a time, outsmart bodyguards and escape the depths of Facility X13!

Failure is a competitive online cyberpunk real-time strategy game.

Players must fight for control of the digital cyberspace world, taking missions for the three corporate factions through a combination of procedural driven multiplayer and linear single player missions which are intertwined within the same experience.

Players alter the battle-space through the use of hacking abilities called scripts which allow the landscape of the word to change. Players must expand their territory, build offensive and defensive buildings and spawn clever Ai controlled units that can have their behaviours influenced by other scripts.

It's a combination of the fast paced competitive game play of a MOBA with the tactical depth of an RTS and the deck building and customisation of a CCG – Failure is a fresh take on the genre that feels innovative and offers players new challenges within the competitive gaming space.

Human civilization is in shambles. You lead a group of survivors whose goal is to rebuild civilization as you see fit.
You begin in an infected village. Scour through infected buildings to find new resources to survive, clean them and convert them into what your new society needs (houses, hospitals, cafeteria...).
Along the way you will encounter other groups of survivors who have also escaped the apocalypse. You decide whether they join your community or leave them to fend for themselves. But be careful: not everyone can be trusted.
All your survivors have specific skills, personality traits and needs that you will have to fulfill if you want them to stay a happy and active member of the community. They will forge relationships, and eventually found new families.
As the world stretches far and wide, you will be able to send out expeditions beyond the borders of your village, find new recruits and locations to explore, and bring back resources to keep your community healthy and safe.
Be warned: this world is full of danger and you will have to make tough decisions. Not everyone can be saved with the meager resources at your disposal. Will you sacrifice those who don't benefit your community, or will you try and save everyone? The choice is yours.
Will you be a benevolent leader, or will you murder and rob those who don't agree with your vision of this new world?

Features:
- Rebuild civilization by cleaning and converting the buildings into armories, fortune hospital and more.
- Tactical turn based combat inspired by Divinity: Original Sin
- Resources are inspired by real survivalism methods
- Characters all have traits, skills and needs that you have to take in account in your decision making
- Decide whether you will be a benevolent leader or a cruel tyrant

In Fragments of Him you experience the lives of four people connected by love and a tragic accident. You walk alongside Will on his last morning and discover the meaning of his final thoughts. With Mary, Will's grandmother, you learn about his childhood, their conflict, and how they ultimately reconciled some of their differences. Sarah was Will's girlfriend and first love. She tells us how she found a deeper understanding of herself during their time together. And finally, Harry is Will's partner when the accident happens. Can Harry ever accept the loss?

More akin to a theatre play than traditional game, in Fragments of Him you explore the world in a first-person view and gently guide Will, Mary, Sarah, and Harry along their journeys. It is a compelling emotional drama deliberately designed without puzzles or difficulty, and created for players seeking a thought-provoking and artistic experience.

Although melancholy at times, it is ultimately an uplifting exploration of what it means to truly open your heart to others. As the threads of Will's life combine, they create a single story of love, memories, and hope.

The game is going to be scaled to thousands of characters on cellphones on release, and later to millions of characters on desktop PC-s. Also we are planning to add massive multiplayer support after the initial release of the game in December, 2016.

Ultraviolent bullet-hell platformer Gunnihilation is dual-stick 16-bit mayhem that fuses several forms of 2D shoot'em up, from run and gun classics like Contra and Metal Slug, to the arena based slaughter of Smash TV. The side-scrolling action gameplay and screen-filling bosses can be tackled alone or with up to 4 players in local co-op.

The world is held ransom by an evil organisation with a secret weapon: waves and waves of expendable men. You are an operative in an elite task force with the critical mission of saving the world, armed only with a hammer, a handful of guns and a million billion bullets.

You will need to memorise the intricate patterns of the bullet-spewing giga-bosses, time your hammer swings against charging berserkers and practise your circle-strafing against armies of mechs.

Jump, shoot, dodge, explode, hammer, shoot, explode, crush and explode your way across teeming jungles, devastated cityscapes, evil labs, rickety elevators and silent train yards against hundreds of enemies per level.
