This week, dive into a sunken spaceship adventure, shrink to ant size in a backyard battleground, squash spiders across dimensions, gear up for underwater pixelated escapades and a quest to save a beautiful, besieged planet.] But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Set to launch on Steam and PlayStation this Tuesday, and on Xbox and Windows via Microsoft on Wednesday, Harold Halibut offers a unique narrative adventure aboard a sunken spaceship. Dive into a hand-crafted, stop-motion world as Harold, a lab assistant exploring the vibrant, quirky spaceship FEDORA I. With full voice acting and a cinematic storyline, this game blends friendship, mystery, and the pursuit of home in an alien ocean. If you are only checking out one game this week, this is it.

Grounded hits PlayStation and Nintendo Switch this Wednesday, expanding beyond its early access roots on Xbox Game Pass and Steam. Imagine “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids” as a game—shrink to the size of an ant and survive the treacherous backyard! Build, battle giant insects, and unravel mysteries either solo or with friends in this first-person, multiplayer survival adventure. With continuous updates and gameplay patches, it’s now time to either go big, or never go home!

Kill it with Fire 2 launches on Steam Early Access this Wednesday, bringing a spider-infested multiverse not for the faint-hearted! As an Exterminator, arm yourself with outrageous sci-fi weaponry and tackle spiders across dimensions in 4-player co-op. Prefer a twist? Jump into Spider Hunt PvP, where you can become the arachnid. Get ready to blast, burn, and battle through bizarre worlds in this thrilling sequel. Ready your flamethrowers—it’s spider-squashing time!

Honourable Mention: And our honorable mention this week goes to two games, with the first being Dave the Diver, launching on PlayStation this Tuesday. This game, already acclaimed on Steam, blends adventure, RPG, and management as you explore the Blue Hole by day and run a sushi restaurant by night. Dive into casual combat with rogue-like elements, catch and cook over 200 types of sea creatures, and enjoy the quirky narrative and stunning pixel-3D art blend. Packed with minigames and side quests, Dave the Diver offers endless entertainment.

The second honorable mention goes to Planet of Lana, hitting Nintendo Switch on Tuesday and PlayStation on Thursday. Previously launched on Xbox Game Pass to critical acclaim, this game is set on a planet once in harmony between humans, nature, and animals, now facing the threat of a faceless army. But this isn’t a war story—it’s about preserving the beauty of a vibrant planet. Engage in unique companion-based gameplay, solve intricate puzzles, and navigate perilous situations with stealth and wit.
