Between interactive TV shows like Black Mirror: Bandersnatch and games like The Complex, it's getting harder and harder to tell the two apart.

There's no slowing down Jake Hunter in the West. Following the launch of Ghost of the Dusk in 2018, now the star of Arc System Works' detective series is back in a localized prequel called Alternate Jake Hunter: DAEDALUS – The Awakening of Golden Jazz, out now in North America on PS4 and Switch.

The creators of The Unholy Society ask what would happen if "The Exorcist, Preacher, and Constantine had a baby?" We're hoping they mean figuratively, but in any case we'll find out later this year when CAT-astrophe Games releases their debut adventure on PC and consoles.

Pulse Entertainment's Bad Mojo showed us in 1996 that being an insect can be a lot fun (in a game, that is). Now indie Polish developer Ovid Works is revisiting the concept in their upcoming Kafka-esque environmental puzzler Metamorphosis.

Cyberpunk seems to be making a welcome resurgence in gaming these days. The latest title to delve into a dystopian future of high tech and lowly station is indie developer Insert Disk 22 – at least, they will if they're able to secure the necessary crowdfunding for Born Punk on Kickstarter.

It's a good thing planets revolve in an orbit, because we completely missed Planet RIX-13 on its first pass when it launched in 2017 on PC. Now, however, the short retro-styled sci-fi adventure has come around again, this time on all three major consoles and PlayStation Vita.

Fairy tales warn us to beware wolves in sheep's clothing, so to speak, but what if the wolf just really wants to help correct a fateful mistake? Such is the basis for the upcoming fantasy side-scrolling adventure, The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince.

This will be the case once again in indie German developer StickyStoneStudio's upcoming Memorrha.
