Under a Rock
This impressive compilation of teasers for Under a Rock was posted by developers (@nordic_trolls) in this tweet. The animations, different environments, and lighting all look striking, which will no doubt make for an enjoyable single or multiplayer experience. Under a Rock is an open-world survival game and you can wishlist it on Steam now!
Mojito the Cat
This adorable footage from the puzzle platformer, Mojito the Cat was shared by the game’s Twitter page (@GtzaStudio) in this tweet. The 3D platforming style is animated seamlessly and the gameplay presents a classic Sonic The Hedgehog feels with a modern and feline twist! The music and sound effects are light-hearted and cute, plus you can wishlist Mojito the Cat on Steam right now.
This tranquil video of Moonstone Island was shared by the game’s Twitter account (@Moonstone_game) in this tweet. The pixel design and style remind me of the classic Pokémon games, and the cute and peaceful vibe is only enhanced by the equally jovial music. Plus, the winter theme is perfect now that we are heading into the latter part of the year! You can wishlist Moonstone Island on Steam now.
See one of the goodest boys in this footage from Farewell North which was shared by the developer (@kylewbanks) in this tweet. The clip shows off the in-game tail physics and the animation is incredibly smooth and satisfying to watch! It is a game all about restoring colour to the world, so Farewell North is bound to be feel-good fun. You can currently wishlist it on Steam and download the demo.
The Axis Unseen
These captivating screenshots of The Axis Unseen were shared by the game’s developer (@NPurkeypile) in this tweet. Although it is Nate’s first solo game, he has previously worked on Skyrim, and Fallout 3 and 4, so we’re in good hands! The use of lighting and earth elements creates intriguing environments and settings that are bound to be a thrill to explore. We can’t wait to see more of The Axis Unseen, but in the meantime, you can wishlist the game on Steam!
The Spirit and the Mouse
This magical clip from The Spirit and the Mouse was shared by the developers (@ArmorGameStudio) in this tweet. I absolutely love the attention to detail in how Lila the mouse’s ears twitch and wiggle in curiosity and the use of colour is stunning. The Spirit and the Mouse is a puzzle platformer and you can wishlist it on Steam now in time for its release date on September 26!
