Another month has come to a close, so it's time to look back at all of the best new games that arrived in October. Our top choice is an emotionally charged adventure through a frozen afterlife, Pinstripe. See what else made our list.
The game is influenced by classics like The Nightmare Before Christmas, Coraline, and Alice in Wonderland. An estranged ex-minister will venture through Hell in search of his 3-year-old daughter Bo and her kidnapper.
Designed for two players, you and a friend will tackle a puzzle adventure. In the game, you are a luckless explorer who was split into two different beings. All of the puzzles are made where only one player has parts to the solution. So communication is definitely a key when playing.
Rubicon is inspired by whistleblowers. You’ll play as a food safety officer for a multinational corporation who gradually becomes a whistleblower. Depending on your choices, the game will present different situations inspired by real facts.
Townscaper is all about building and nothing else. Your imagination is the only limit as you can pick colors from a pallet, place colored blocks of a house and then watch the game’s algorithm complete the project.
Pikmin Bloom is looking to make your daily walks more enjoyable with a squad of unique creatures. If you’ve never seen the popular Nintendo series, Pikmin are small plant-like creatures that can’t be seen with the naked eye. With the game, you can see and interact with them. Pikmin grow from seedlings and once they grow big enough, they can follow you around. The more you walk, the more Pikmin will join you.
All of the puzzles in the game refers to observations, experiments, or phenomenons from quantum physics. You’ll be helped out by the great-granddaughter of a world-famous physicist and Nobel Prize winner.
