New Video Game Releases for the Week of 12-9-18

If you’ve managed to detach yourself from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate long enough to read this article, I commend you. I may have only half the game’s roster unlocked right now, but there are a few new game releases this week that demand attention.

Devolver Digital drops Gris this week, and words cannot replicate the impression its trailer gives. It seems like quite an experience; check it out below:

Quite a few other indie games come out this week, including Desert Child and Kingdom Two Crowns. Both games mix pixel art with their own spin on co-op gameplay, offering a refreshing departure from the constant stream of AAA releases in preparation for the holidays. Sam & Dan: Floaty Flatmates places you, a VR headset-wearer, into a world where you survive a global flood and must find other survivors (someone else playing) before building a makeshift bridge to unite one another. It’s a damn nifty idea. Speaking of nifty ideas, Lily serves as a form of music creation in via therapeutic visuals.

Atlas was just recently revealed at the 2018 Game Awards, and it’s already coming out. It’s a pirate-themed MMO from the creators of ARK: Survival Evolved, but it looks like so much more. And if, somehow, you’re still hankering for a roguelike after this year’s expansion of the genre, check out Below coming to PC and Xbox One this week.

As always, the bold titles are the games that piqued my interest — everything is for PC unless stated otherwise.

Zach’s eternal preoccupation with video games became cemented at an early age.

Having took English classes as electives in college, Zach decided to pull the trigger on a merger between the two obsessions.
