Kick off with a creative puzzle-platformer, move into a home renovation adventure, delve into a post-apocalyptic RPG set in Western Australia, introduce a tactical shooter where strategic deaths are key, and round off with a tranquil MMO exploring vast mystical realms for your week in gaming this week. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Kicking off the week with a bang, Summoneer drops this Monday, stealing the spotlight as the first game release of the week. It’s like Scribblenauts on steroids—your creativity leads the charge in this physics-based platformer. Sketch out wild vehicles or bizarre contraptions to tackle puzzles and climb castles.

Hitting PlayStation this Wednesday and Xbox on Thursday with a little something that is the same reason you delay a few seconds before flipping past the home improvement show when watching TV – House Flipper 2. This sequel has been out on Steam for a bit and it’s the Power Wash Simulator of interior design, but with extra flair. You get to transform dilapidated dumps into homes that either should get their own cable TV show or nightmare fuel.

Embark on a journey through post-apocalyptic Western Australia in Broken Roads, launching this Thursday on Xbox, PlayStation, and Steam. This isometric RPG blends classic storytelling with innovative gameplay, set against the vast, desolate landscapes of the Outback. Your decisions shape the narrative through the game’s unique Moral Compass system, offering deep character customization and impactful moral choices.

Die Again redefines the top down shooter genre—it’s a tactical arena where strategic deaths let you jump into enemy bodies! This game is all about mastering the art of the timely demise. Launch into action on Thursday on Die Again for Nintendo Switch, and on Steam and the Epic Games Store. Xbox warriors, you’re up on Friday.

Honourable Mention: And our honorable mention this week is Sky: Children of the Light, already released on PlayStation in December and launching this Thursday for PC players via Steam. From the creators of Journey, this tranquil MMO invites you to explore the vast, open-world Realms of Sky, where you’re tasked with healing a world engulfed in Darkness. Engage in deep lore, solve puzzles, and free ancestral Spirits in a cozy kingdom perfect for both solo adventures and social exploration with friends.
