This week game night returns with a free game from the Epic Store, tabletop gaming for one, Final Fantasy remakes and more from the makers of Myst. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Starting your week for the tabletop gamers, looking for a solo campaign while you are without your party? Check out Galaxy of Pen & Paper that puts you within a tabletop campaign set in the stars. The sequel to Knights of Pen & Paper gives you turn based combat and more as you too sit in the most comfy chair you can upgrade to within the game too. It’s out for Switch on Wednesday and then on Xbox One Thursday.

Friday brings the big title this week with Square Enix’s Final Fantasy VII Remake for the PlayStation 4. Following the roots of the standalone game the remake follows the escape from Midgar but then goes deeper into those events than the original making it more than just a remake.

Then on Saturday the studio that brought you Myst introduces you to their latest Sci-Fi based adventure – Obduction. Taken from earth without your permission you find yourself on Strange Worlds on the other side of the Galaxy to explore and solve. Originally a 2016 release for Steam you can get the console edition for Xbox One this week.

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention this week goes out to another not new but free title for you while you stay safe. Are you missing game night with friends? No need to risk it with Drawful 2 now free on the Epic Games store this week. Drawful is like Pictionary (remember Pictionary?) but for online because game night does not stop for the end of the world. Better yet, while it’s free on PC Drawful is on just about every platform you can think of (even Apple TV) so everyone can play.

If you bought any of these on the release day, tell us how it went! Also, as always did we miss anything? Something you are looking forward to more than anything else? Tell us in the comments
