Diving the Depths, the closest to playing a Studio Ghibli movie, procedurally generated RPGs and a throwback from the 80s gets an update is on your gaming plate this week. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

If you are not completely freaked out about the idea of being alone in the dark and trapped underwater then that is a separate topic but you might want to pickup Silt coming out this Wednesday. While easy to see the Limbo comparisons but you are a diver who can possess smaller creatures around you to solve puzzles as you look to escape… bigger fish. This one is out for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation and PC via the Epic Store and Steam.

While not the most action packed game this week Behind the Frame: The Finest Scenery has you helping an aspiring artist by solving a variety of puzzles to complete her masterpiece. Why are we recommending it? Because it is easily the most beautiful game out this week and is like looking at a Studio Ghibli movie. It is coming out for PlayStation and Nintendo Switch this Thursday.

And on Saturday Xbox players get access to Unexplored 2: The Wayfarer’s Legacy. Released on Steam last week, Unexplored is a procedurally generated RPG with a slight twist in that if you die you can choose to pass on your world and legacy to another OR if you choose to continue in a new world your old world but if you do and die once you pass a point of no return your saves will be deleted forever. It’s a pretty big twist on procedurally generated and it does look pretty good too.

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention comes from a new title (sorta) from… Atari. Gravitar: Recharged is the update to the 1982 title from Atari which was pretty much at the beginning of the rotate and thrust tiny ship shooter genre. Aside from coming out on the AtariVCS console that was released not that long ago this one is also dropping via the Epic Store on Wednesday and Nintendo Switch, Xbox and PlayStation on Thursday.

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
