Duet is a hypnotic new “hex-like” mobile action arcade game with a mesmerizingly beautiful soundtrack by Melbourne composer and Gotye multi-instrumentalist Tim Shiel.
Elegant and minimal, Duet asks players simply to navigate two orbiting spheres past an increasingly complex maze of falling obstacles. As the difficulty increases, the tension mounts, and a peculiar narrative unfolds…
Framed is an award winning narrative-puzzle game that plays like an animated comic book. Each page of the noir thriller presents a series of panels that depict an important action or event. Players change the order of these events, changing the outcome of the story. When each action is framed by the last, context is everything.
A 3D scare ‘em up game à la Tim Burton, where you die every night and spawn as a ghost trying to resurrect. Scare villagers out of their wits and grab their soul power during the midnight hour in order to resurrect.
Wizards! Monsters! Dice! Loot! And Risk! This game brings RPG’s back to their roots…no more mysterious battle stats, instead you directly control what happens by rolling the virtual dice!
There are monsters to collect, quests to complete and dice to build! In this ultimate challenge, can you become the greatest hero in the world?
