Keeping track of all the games arriving each week on PC, handhelds, consoles and mobile is no easy track, but don’t worry, I’m here to help. Every week in Five Games I separate the wheat from the chaff and pick the titles you need to pay attention to.
We recently freshened up the Five Games format a bit. The Pick of the Week is now listed first, and the rest of the games are filed under headings that will hopefully be more helpful for you. Looking for the latest indie hotness? Check the Steam picks. Want to download something for your Xbox One or PS4 on a Saturday night? Hit up the Console Downloads section. So, without further ado…
Pick of the Week
Asemblance (PC & PS4, June 21)
In Asemblance, you awake to find yourself trapped in some sort of experimental machine. The machine can simulate your memories and seems to be running some sort of experiment on you, but you just want to escape. Of course that’s probably going to be a lot harder than you think.
The game looks like a good solid mind trip, and its production values look pretty impressive by indie standards. Perhaps that’s not surprising given that the game was created by developers who used to work for Bungie (Destiny) and Visceral Games (Dead Space). Asemblance looks like a good, creepy take on the modern adventure game/walking simulator. Play it before everybody starts talking about it.
