Except that the cat we play in Stray gets lost in a post-apocalyptic world populated by robots and is taken over by mysterious creatures that you’ll have to take care of. Exploration in majestic settings, puzzles and action are on the agenda of this short poetic adventure accessible to all. The main argument in favor of the Tramp is, of course, the kitten.

Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope

Available on Nintendo Switch

After a very successful first opus, the mix between the worlds of Mario and the Rabbids is back! The gameplay formula has changed a little in this new opus, which is still a “tactical”, i.e. turn-based combat game. However, during the exploration phases, you will be able to move much more freely through the environment, which will not be linear and interventional, as it was in the first part. The combat phases will also be slightly different, as you will no longer move around the squares and will be able to move freely within the combat perimeter to find the best angle of attack. Another big success for this alliance between Ubisoft and Nintendo!

Available on Xbox Series and PC

Change the atmosphere with Scorn, a terrifying FPS developed by Ebb Software that will put you in a very dark atmosphere of what looks like an organic maze that you’ll have to get out of. The art direction is heavily inspired by Herbert Giger’s work for the famous Alien saga, which makes the game feel like a no-brainer. The gameplay is close to what we could find in Bioshock, combining action phases with exploration and puzzles.
