Sci-Fi Strategy Game Space Hulk Launches on Nvidia Shield

Set in Games Workshop’s iconic Warhammer 40,000 universe, Space Hulk is a tactical board game in which a team of Space Marines go into battle against ferocious alien Genestealers aboard a labyrinthine derelict spaceship. Originally released in 1989, it’s won legions of fans worldwide, with subsequent updates selling out almost as quickly as they’ve been announced, and now you can enjoy its tense, claustrophobic action on Nvidia Shield.


Post-Apocalyptic Adventure, Submerged, Hits Nvidia Shield via GeForce Now

Submerged is an intriguing proposition: a post-apocalyptic adventure without the standard ingredients. There are no guns, there’s no blasted wasteland and no hideous mutants waiting to tear you limb from limb at every opportunity. Instead there’s an enormous flooded city to explore, filled with playful sea creatures to watch and derelict buildings to climb, making it a serene alternative to the likes of other games in its genre.


[Updated] Machinarium’s beautiful metal world will be coming to the NVIDIA Shield console soon

Having been out for awhile now for Android devices, Machinarium is a delightful little adventure that’ll have you grinning from ear to ear when you’re not scratching your head in complete bafflement. It’s developed by Amanita Design, a small indie studio from the Czech Republic that made a name for itself years ago with a lovely browser-based game called Samorost, mixing animation and macro plant photography to create a surreal space adventure with a distinct organic feel.
