This Week in Games: Aug 2 – 7

There is a lot of chill game play with only a sprinkle of Zombies, Inception like dreaming and Demon Lords for you to defeat. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Starting your week with some classic Altered Beast style gameplay is GRIME. Out on Steam on Monday (or the Epic Game store on Tuesday) GRIME is a side scrolling RPG which revolves around a more biological take on levelling with weapons you craft that mutate and consuming the remains of enemies (through your head, which is a black hole). If you are into side scrolling hack and slash this looks pretty good.

Deadly Days is a top down Pixel based Zombie Survival game that gives you a unique look and feel to the end of the world. Unique characters, special abilities and weapons which are randomly generated in randomly generated cities for randomly generated missions keeps the gameplay light but different enough to keep you going. Coming to the Xbox on Wednesday this is one of those games that has been on Steam for a while and only just made the leap.

On Thursday is some chill gameplay with Haven Park. Play as a Chicken with an extremely oversized head left to tend a camping park. Make life better for the campers and just generally wander about in this world that is about as stressful as Animal Crossing (without the loans). It comes to the Nintendo Switch this week.

Keeping things light this week also coming Thursday explore an abandoned world in a mechsuit to find seeds and grow a new crop in your seed vault, this is no grim and gritty survival title but the bright world of Doomsday Vault out also on the Nintendo Switch and Steam this week. More on the Wall-E sort of abandoned than the Will Smith I Am Legend sort you explore, solve puzzles and return seeds back to your vault.

And Thursday is a big day this week with Dreamscaper also available for the Nintendo Switch. Another rogue light for your week and again available on the Switch this one has you playing in an endless cycle of waking/dreaming as you roam your town during the day building relationships then go all inception at night dropping deeper into your subconscious.

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention this week is for some classic NES style metroidvania gaming in Digiton: Heart of Corruption. Defeat the four demon lords in this one out for PlayStation and the Nintendo Switch on Wednesday before Xbox on Thursday. This is one for the retro game lovers.
