To be released by Pixbits, Junk Jack is a 2D crafting game, riffing on the idea of Minecraft. In this game, players will get to customize what their character looks like, with options that include gender, hair, skin tone, and more. Characters start the game by trying to harvest resources from the immediate surroundings, which would include wood, stone, and more, from the forest. Other biomes include forests that grow completely under ground, and even Egyptian tombs, or rivers and lakes full of water, or flows of lava and pools of acid.
Old school game fans have a new title to look forward to snapping up next month called Retro Winter Sports 1986.

Fans of the Five Nights at Freddy’s franchise may have another game to sink their time into in the near future.

Every once in a while, a game comes along with a backstory that’s based on something that really intrigues me. Radiation Island is one such game, as it takes the urban legend of the Philadelphia Experiment, and uses that has a back drop. In this game, players assume the role of someone who ends up warping into an alternate (and somewhat unfriendly) dimension, due to the US Navy’s experimentation with cloaking their vessels.
Football fans, or soccer depending on where you live, have a new game to look forward to, and this one happens to be a team effort between Hugo Games and the famed Real Madrid club. Interestingly enough, there doesn’t seem to be an official name for this game just yet, even though the core details are being announced today.
