  • We Know the DevilWe Know the Devil —October 4, 2015— Classic Magical Girl style tropes meet themes of modern religion in this indie visual novel, as a trio of kids at the Summer Scouts slog through bullies, boring campfire singalongs, bugs, and the fear that maybe who they really are deep inside is wrong... and everyone knows it.

  • 7Days7Days —October 2, 2015— 7Days, a first-person horror adventure game developed by RevoLab, has a simple fear at its core: Waking up and not knowing where you are. The experience starts off slow and ends up being at least 95% atmosphere, leaving such things as plot, character development and, in some parts, coherence by the wayside. Those looking for that special surreal style of spooky, though, will find it a nice time waster.
  • Super Chibi KnightSuper Chibi Knight —September 29, 2015— The kingdom of Oukoku lives in the shadow of the dastardly (and spicy) General Tso. The legends foretold of a tiny knight that would one day be the salvation of the land. Are you that knight? Are you that tiny? Well, you'd better be, because you're the only hope we have. Super Chibi Knight is an platform-RPG-adventure hybrid by the PestoForce teamof Nick (age 33) and Bella (age 8). It's joyful hack-and-slash fun, though with a couple odd spikes difficulty-wise.
