Styx: Shards of Darkness
Styx returns in a new stealth adventure! Hired for a critical mission, explore and master huge open environments as Styx, alone or in coop with a friend. Assassinate or sneak past enemies – Humans, Elves, and Dwarfs – as well as more fearsome, colossal creatures, and experiment with the new array of lethal abilities and weapons in your goblin assassin’s arsenal. Spend experience points in assassination, infiltration, magic, to learn new skills and improve abilities. Explore, recover artifacts and ingredients to craft deadly traps and useful items, and create clones of yourself to deceive your enemies!

Death Squared
Death Squared is a cooperative puzzle game for one, two, or four players, best enjoyed with loved ones who don’t mind a little arguing for the greater good. Prove your teamwork skills in Death Squared as you solve puzzles together or die trying! Each player needs to guide a robot to a color-coded goal, but the path is beset with deadly traps and hazards. Teams of players will need close observation and communication to keep each other alive and discover a solution together. Complete the main campaign in single-player or with two players, then take a group into four-player Party Mode for the ultimate teamwork trial!
