Out Of Space is about powering up randomly generated space stations infested by filthy alien critters. The goal is to power every room with a battery while combating an alien menace that constantly impedes your progress. Yet you and your team must also manage to live together, often in cramped quarters until the work is done.
Sky Cannoneer is a fortress artillery game inspired by a classic game called Rampart. Every match is played out in several short phases, each lasting only around twenty seconds.
Unrailed falls into the same category as chaotic co-op games such as Overcooked, but the concept is incredibly unique. You must guide an increasingly faster train from station to station without letting it derail or crash. You accomplish this by cutting trees and mining rocks, both to clear a path and to use those resources to craft train tracks to forge the train’s route.
Horizon Zero Dawn has an interesting concept. Fill the world with giant robotic animals and tell the player to take them down with bows, arrows, and slingshots. Somehow the idea works out great instead of being a complete disaster. In fact, the combat against mechanical monstrosities is easily one of the games highest points.
While Overcooked 2 can be played solo, the core experience is that of chaotic cooperation between partners and friends. You will laugh and yell at each other in equal measure as the team attempts to cook and send out a variety of dishes while combating oddball hazards and individual incompetence.
Days Gone is a slow burn, slower than most. I almost quit during the first several hours. Not because the game was boring, but it just didn’t grab me. However, the longer you play Days Gone the more it grows from both a gameplay and story standpoint. In the end, I’m very glad I stuck around.
Spider-Man Game Of The Year Edition is an open-world action game where you play as everyone’s favorite web-slinger. You traverse New York City in true Spider-Man style, swinging and zipping around, between and over buildings. Stopping every now and then to pummel some bad guys, pick up a collectible or solve a puzzle.
Surviving The Aftermath is a colony management and simulation game that takes place in a post-apocalyptic world.

Bad North is a minimalistic and simple strategy game with fun and satisfying game mechanics. You control little squads of armed warriors on the run from an ever-approaching Viking tide.
