How can you make moral decisions in a world where morality no longer exists as a concept? That’s one of the big questions you’ll come up against in The Uncertain, a brand new 3D adventure now available to download on Nvidia Shield.
Nvidia has decided to put a few of their Shield games on sale for a limited time as part of a new Fall sale. The six games that are discounted as part of this sale are across all genres including puzzle, adventure, platformer, action and more. So there should be at least one game that will interest most people with a Shield device.
Developed by Visiontrick Media, Pavilion is a puzzle-filled adventure on Nvidia Shield that drops you into a dreamlike world with no explanation as to why you’re there or tutorial on what exactly you’re supposed to do. To make things things even more unusual, you don’t have control over its mysterious main character—a thin, sharply dressed man.
Hotlap Heroes is a new multiplayer racing game from developers Team Pea. Besides the actual game itself, the developers have also released a companion app for this game called Hotlap Heroes: Controller App. As you might be guessing, this app will turn your Android device of choice into a controller, allowing you to connect to the multiplayer gameplay mode regardless of the device you’re using.
Nvidia has submitted designs for a pair of new wireless peripherals to the FCC. To wit, they are a TV remote (similar to the one used with Nvidia’s Android TV model), and a game controller. Starting with the latter, it’s obvious that it’s a redesign for a few reasons. First, the shape of the controller is a bit on the leaner side, thinning out at the lower portion (think PlayStation’s Sixaxis controller, but not quite as drastic).
One of the most beloved arcade games of all time, Q*Bert, has launched on Nvidia’s flagship Android gaming platform, Nvidia Shield, in Q*Bert: Rebooted. While the game previously released on other platforms, it arrives this week with some new Shield specific enhancements including eight exclusive tracks by EDM artist ENV, revamped visuals and UI that take advantage of Shield’s processing power and re-balanced controls.
Back in May 2016 we reported on Nvidia submitted a new Shield tablet to the FCC, which looked to be the follow-up to the current Shield K1 model. From what was in that FCC report, it looked like the new model would have been an upgrade to the current one, sporting a Tegra X1 chipset for starters. We say ‘would have’ because Nvidia has submitted a dismissal request letter to the FCC over the new tablet.
Developed by Giant Squid Studios and published by 505 Games, ABZÛ is a new adventure game that allows players to explore the vast mysterious world deep within the ocean.

Featuring very detailed high-definition visuals and effects, Riptide GP: Renegade puts players in the role of a hydro jet racer who has been framed and banned from the professional Riptide GP league. In order to restore your reputation as the best racer on the planet you must compete in illegal races around the city. Since the races you find yourself in are not sanctioned, you will not only have to race against other participants but also evade the police who have their own hydro jet bikes. The combination of being both a racer and a fugitive is one of the things that makes Riptide GP: Renegade a refreshingly different take on traditional arcade-style racing.
