Wargroove_Main_logo

Wargroove, developed in-house by Chucklefish, is a turn-based strategy game for up to 4 players! Each player takes control of an army and its commander unit to wage war on their enemies! Wargroove is extremely easy to pickup, with accessibility at the forefront of its design, and very difficult to master, with deep gameplay mechanics that complement strategic play. Choose a Commander from the 4 warring factions – the Cherrystone Kingdom, Heavensong Empire, Felheim Legion and Floran Tribes and then strategically use your Commander’s unique ‘groove’ ability to sway the battle in your favour!

EastwardLogo_dark

Eastward is an adventure game developed by Shanghai-based Pixpil with RPG elements, set in a beautifully detailed decaying world, where society is starting to collapse as the human population shrinks to an all-time low. As the world around falls to ruin, you play as a hardworking digger John, who must guide a mysterious girl named Sam through dangerous decaying cities, inhabited by strange monsters, and even stranger people! Inspired by 90s Japanese animation, the visual style of Eastward has been brought to life using a combination of a modern, innovative 3D lighting system and a rich retro-pixel artwork.
