Summer is not ideal for fresh, new gaming experiences. However, if your time isn’t already consumed by updates to the games you love (lol), there looks like a handful of unique video game experiences on the way.

Pool Panic puts you in charge of hitting a seemingly heroic cue ball into the baddest of baddies in order to save the world? That’s what it looks like, at least. Zombie balls, badass biker balls, spider balls — you name it, you gotta hit it, I guess. Either way, the hand-drawn aesthetic pairs beautifully with the surreal gameplay, and the whole mood of the trailer left me fairly captivated:

Not absurd enough for you? Well then, take a gander at Chicken Assassin: Reloaded. The name says it all. If slapstick comedy is more up your alley, Guts and Glory comes to PS4 and Switch this week. Radiis could scratch that strategy game itch with its hexagonal, grid-based tactics, and the reliance of strategic building placement mixed with the complete absence of “units” could make for a nice, little surprise.

Hand of Fate 2 may be in 4K resolution for Xbox One X owners, but this week Switch owners will be able to bring the interesting mix of tabletop elements and action-based gameplay with them on the go. Anyone looking for a decent platformer can look to Sonic Mania Plus to cover their bases, though its impact might not be as great as the initial release. At least there are two new characters now, I suppose? Welcome to the gang, Mighty and Ray. I wish you the best of luck.

Oh, and if you enjoy that there battle royale-style of game and are currently displeased with the state of the top dogs, check out Fear the Wolves. It’s, somehow, related to S.T.A.L.K.E.R., so there’s already a niche interest there. But out of all the battle royale attempts I’ve seen, this is the one that most interests me the most.

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