Unearthing Colossal is a very cool 2D pixel Art QWOP-Like physics brawler with puzzles, unique weapons and large bosses, that puts you in charge of a bloodthirsty Colossus who wipes out whole human villages with no mercy.

As in most QWOP-Style games, the controls take some getting used to, but are also a large part of the enjoyment.  ‘WASD’ controls character movement, while the arrow keys control your arms.  You can pick up items and weapons in each individual hand and flail them around to great effect.  Once mastered, you can even throw items – in-fact you’ll need to to solve some puzzles.

There’s lots of fun to be had from being a colossus, wiping out humans and smashing their villages with some well timed blows.  As well as destruction, there are a few well implemented puzzles, and some impressive boss fights along the way, making for a game that will test your brain power as well as your finger dexterity.  

Don’t stand in the shadow of this colossus or it’ll pulverise you (after a few practice swings).

SUPER III is a (very) fast-paced, pixel art puzzle platformer which uses teleportation and screen-wrap gameplay mechanics to great effect.

As you’d expect from the developer of Frog Sord, your character (III) is remarkably nimble, with an ability to run, jump and wall-jump with a pleasing amount of precision.  Where the game really comes into it’s own is the use of your characters teleportation ability, with you able to horizontally teleport instantly to the first wall/block in your line of sight.  When this is combined with the screen-wrapping of the levels it can make for some truly mind-bending level design, requiring quick reflexes and quick thinking as you solve puzzles on-the-fly (while trying not to die).

SUPER III is still very early in development (the current build even lacks sound), but We’d love to see more of this inventive, intelligent and challenging puzzle platformer.  For the full release, the dev plans to have an over-world and mission structure inspired by Super Mario 64, over 100 missions spanning 5 chapters, Boss fights and chaotic 4 player deathmatches.  SUPER challenging, SUPER smart, SUPER fun, SUPER III.

The Flock is a great looking online first-person asymmetrical horror game coming to Steam, in which players compete to own the ‘Light Artefact’ which turns you from the hunter into the prey.

The gameplay trailer shows of some very pretty and rather creepy looking surroundings.  You are one of ‘the Flock’, a race of large and agile monsters, who seek out the coveted ‘Light Artifact’. Once a player grabs the Artifact, they will then turn into the fragile, slow, and more humanlike ‘Carrier’.

The hunters are more agile, but they can be harmed by the light, capable of turning them to stone if they stand still in it, and killing them if they move.  Players accumulate points over time so survival is key.

Potential Alpha testers will need their Steam user name, e-mail address and a short description of why you want to join in the Alpha.  So what are you waiting for?  Join the flock!

DarkfieldVR is a great looking first person space dog fighting game with a focus on co-op, virtual reality, and epic space battles.

You’ll start off in a station getting ready to hop on your fighter ship, and fly to fight in a thrilling war in a dog fighting experience against challenging opponents.  DarkfieldVR has a big focus on co-op play, and in the finished game you’ll be able to work together with a wingman to complete a variety of space based missions.

It’s still early in development, and the controls could do with a little work, but already the graphics, ship models, visual and sound effects are all excellent

DarkfieldVR looks set to be an impressive and fully immersive co-op space opera – Multiplayer X-Wing with Rift support.
