Internet influencers may enjoy the adulation their elevated online status affords them, but with fame there can be a downside to being the object of public obsession.

Ever wanted to pilot your own mech? Imagine the power, the size, the awesome technology behind it. And then imagine ... how the heck you're actually going to drive this thing – especially if it's alien and comes with no instruction manual. This is the basic premise behind A Rogue Escape, a VR reimagining of 2019's intriguing sci-fi sim Nauticrawl.

Becoming an adult can be rough, with the joys and passion of our teenage years being ground down by the monotonous routine of grown-up life that can seem grey by comparison. Many of us hope for something more, for a blast from the past to sweep us up and bring back some of the old excitement, but perhaps we should be careful what we wish for. In something of a change of pace for Russian developers Ice-Pick Lodge, better known for their Pathologic series, their upcoming title Know by heart... is a low-key tale of extraordinary events in the life of an ordinary man in a provincial Russian town at the turn of the millennium.
