Crimson Spires

Crimson Spires is a Visual Novel developed by Woody Studio. It will be released this Summer in Europe and North America.

Take the role of Sheriff Erika Wright as an investigation brings her to the small mining town of Bataille, where she is suddenly trapped by a ring of deadly, glowing towers encircling the community. Here she meets residents of a disarming variety, from extreme conspiracy theorists to wealthy vampires and a serial killer. Guide Erika’s decisions as she forms uneasy alliances and finds love through partnership. Amidst the horrors facing Bataille, romance can blossom with the few people Erika might be able to trust. Each possible relationship reveals valuable secrets about the towers and their surrounding mystery.

Blending an eerie atmosphere with romance and supernatural mystery, Crimson Spires presents its otome-style narrative with an uncommon degree of freedom. Along its multiple story paths, the experience shifts between rich 2D character art and 3D exploration, allowing you to investigate building interiors and immersing you in the town of Bataille.

Macrotis: A Mother’s Journey

Macrotis: A Mother’s Journey is a 2.5D action/platformer developed by Proud Dinosaurs. It will be released this July in Europe and North America.

Macrotis is the story of a mother’s relentless search for her missing children, an emotional tale told through lush 2.5D platforming filled with thought-provoking puzzles. Climb, jump and gnaw your way through beautiful yet dangerous environments, avoid traps and use water physics to your advantage. As you progress, you’ll gain a variety of natural and supernatural abilities to overcome the obstacles in your path. Will you help Mother Bilby rescue her family?

  • Navigate deceptively gorgeous landscapes.
  • Overcome obstacles by gnawing and digging!
  • Manipulate water physics to proceed without drowning.

  • Gather collectibles to learn the lore of the surrounding world!

Paradox Error

Paradox Error is a 2D action platformer developed by Nerd Games, and releasing… today in Europe and North America (price: 4.99€ / $4.99)!

Paradox Error is a surreal take on the scrolling platformer format, combining minimalistic black-and-white presentation with self-aware, fourth wall breaking design. Glitches are intentionally integrated, allowing the player to cheat death, open new areas by triggering bugs or leap off of UI elements as if they’re part of the stage. The title screen’s main menu acts as a respawn hub, cursors may appear as enemies or helpful guides, graphical errors obscure parts of the screen and the player’s character explodes into pixels upon death.

To survive, you’ll have to quickly identify which portions of the screen can be reached, which pixels can be touched and which ones are simply background art. Adapt as gameplay suddenly shifts to a different perspective or requires interaction with a glitched object to proceed. At its core, Paradox Error is an ever-changing environmental puzzle where you’re expected to die repeatedly and use those failures to inform further attempts, until the goal is eventually within reach. Decidedly hardcore in difficulty but fair enough to encourage repeated play, this is an exercise in trial-and-error, where determination becomes its own reward.

  • Explore a glitched and unpredictable digital world!
  • Adapt to shifts in gameplay mechanics and perspective.
  • Try, die and repeat to learn how to survive.
  • Enjoy a minimalistic black-and-white pixel art style.
  • Use UI elements and game-breaking bugs to your advantage!
