Neil Gaiman/The Odd Gentlemen

Consoles, PCs, handhelds, Facebook, smartphones — the world of gaming is becoming increasingly confusing and fragmented, but don’t worry, we’re here to simplify things for you.

This Week’s Stealth Game

Subscribe to UPROXX

Light (PC, Mac & Linux, July 8th)

Light strips the stealth genre to its absolute basics. Forget the HD graphics and melodramatic storytelling of Metal Gear Solid V, Light features little squares sneaking around basic room blueprints, and really, that’s all it needs. Here’s the game’s Steam page.

This Week’s, Uh, Pivoting Game

Pivvot (PC, Mac & Linux, July 14th)

The title of Pivvot sums it up — you’re a ball, attached to a tether, that’s attached to a rail and your job is to pivot the ball to avoid all manner of obstacles. Simple, yet maddeningly addictive stuff. Here’s the game’s Steam page.

This Week’s 2D Platformer

So Many Me (PC & Mac, July 17th)

So Many Me lets you create numerous clones of yourself, each of which has a number of different abilities. So, for instance, you can create a bunch of clones, then have them transform into platforms you can use to get over a chasm. Seems like a solid, very Nintendo-ey, concept. Here’s the game’s Steam page.
