3. Little Nightmares 2, TBA
Little Nightmares is back! Little Nightmares 2’s predecessor, released in 2017, was a hit with fans; making it no wonder that Bandai Namco would return with a sequel.
In Little Nightmares 2, you play as Mono, a young boy who’s found himself trapped in a distorted world. With Six, from Little Nightmares, as your guide, you must set out to discover the secrets of The Signal Tower, and save Six from her impending doom. Little Nightmares 2 introduces Mono and Six to completely new threats.
2. Stranger Things, TBA
It’s what fans of Pokemon Go! and Stranger Things have been waiting for — a brand new AR Stranger Things mobile game! Stranger Things is being developed by Finnish developer, Next Games; the company who brought us The Walking Dead: Our World.
Stranger Things will be a location-based game that integrates Google Maps. The game will allow fans to walk around the Upside Down, and team up with friends to defeat enemies. Here’s to hoping that Stranger Things will bring people together like Pokemon Go! managed to do.
1. Twelve Minutes, TBA
Gamesradar says (about Twelve Minutes), “might just be the closest we’ll ever get to playing a video game directed by Stanley Kubrick” and that right there is enough to make me want to play this time-loop game.
Twelve Minutes won Best Indie Game of E3 2019 at the Game Critics Awards; considering it the most talked-about indie game of E3 2019.
This twist on the interactive-narrative genre has you take the role of a husband. It’s meant to be a romantic night with your wife, but unfortunately, the world has different plans for you two. A police detective breaks into your home, accuses your wife of murder and then beats you to death.
But guess what?! It’s the Groundhog’s Day video game equivalent, and instead of facing your maker — you return to the exact moment that you opened the front door. Again and again, you are faced with reliving the same nightmare; that is unless you find the way to change the outcome, and break that 12-minute time loop.
