Conway: The Disappearance at Dahlia View – November 2nd

In an incredibly subtle nod to Alfred Hitchcock’s thriller Rear Window in One Place, Conway: Disappearance at Dahlia View throws you off as a retired detective Robert Conway, who witnesses what he believes is a crime right outside the window of his apartment. After finding out that a local girl has been kidnapped, Conway decides to start his own investigation, which means you have to interview your neighbors in a very unofficial way.

Let’s build a zoo – November 5th

It has not been a couple of bad years for zoo building management games with e.g. Planet Zoo and Jurassic World Evolution 2, which offer robust simulations of their respective wildlife cage fantasies. Let’s Build a Zoo’s top-down, pixel art style looks blurry and warm, but it hides a surprisingly complex tycoon game. You’re also going to play God and start creating animal hybrids that would probably feel at odds with the cuddly aesthetic if you don’t end up with an adorable bunch of chickens or bunch of owlybaras to fit. You can check Let’s build a zoo here.

Cuddle your fox buddy in Among Trees

Among trees – NOVEMBER 10

By leaving early access and arriving on Steam at the same time, Among Trees has been quietly improving since launching in the Epic Game Store last summer. The transformation is relatively small compared to games like Valheim and Raft, but then this is a very different type of survival game. There are a few threats to navigating the pristine low-poly wilderness, but for the most part, Among Trees is all about hiking, foraging, and gradually upgrading your cabin. While most survival games set you up against nature, Among Trees is about coexisting with it. You can check out Among Trees here.

Moncage – 16 November

This will not be easy to explain, but we will try. Moncage is a puzzle that is about perspective. Each level makes you search across a box with a variety of illusions and scenes presented across its faces, and it’s up to you to explore each of these little worlds and connect the dots between each side. It’s misleadingly simple, but there’s a consolation in knowing that all the solutions are right in front of you, you just have to find the right angle. You can check out Moncage here.

Fight against creatures from other dimensions in Undungeon

Undungeon – November 18th

Colorful hand-drawn environments and clever hack-and-slash gameplay are unlikely bedfellows, but Undungeon confidently marries the two, while also tying into his own distinctive sci-fi setting and lore. The basic premise is that several dimensions have collapsed and it is up to you to sail through the different worlds and restore the universe. You start out as little more than a skeleton warrior, but as you battle your way through each dimension’s mutated creatures, you unlock various glands and organs that you can equip for passive buffs and combat abilities. It is brave, rough and beautiful at the same time. You can check out Undungeon here.
