Manager your team, save your paper village from flame, avoid giant vampire ladies (or don’t, it’s up to you) and another take on text based adventures are some of the games in store for you this week. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Starting your week with a little sport as you don the cap of Football/Soccer Manager in a game where you could be fired at any time. Definitely aiming for those who like Football Management games but want a little more drama with Football Drama dropping for the Switch on Thursday.

On Friday is an adventure title that throws down the gauntlet to hand drawn point and click adventures with this one being made entirely out of paper. Not quite Paper Mario style but Papetura has an art style where everything you see was made entirely out of paper. You play as a lonely paper creature named Pape trapped in a flowery prison but escape to dace down flaming monsters that may try to burn down the paper world. Even if you don’t want to play it, the art style is definitely worth a look when it releases on Steam.

And lastly for Friday is the big title for the week with Resident Evil Village. Set a few years after the events of RE7 Biohazard this is a brand new storyline with Ethan Winters and his wife Mia moving to a peaceful new location so obviously nothing bad will happen at all. Out for Xbox, PlayStation and Steam Village is bundled with both RE Village and the online multiplayer of RE Re: Verse, a new 4-6 player survival horror revenge style deathmatch game mode. If you have seen the trailer for this one you know you can expect some giant vampire lady thirst traps to come from this.

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention this week goes to 7Days Origins over on Steam. This branching borderline text based adventure has you defining the story with multiple endings and branching paths. We love the Scott Pilgrim’esque art design but you may just enjoy this casual text gameplay in an instant messaging format when you get this on Steam on Tuesday.

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
