Each case has different culprits, clues and experiences for you to test your investigative skills.

Level Zero: In Level Zero, light is life. The power is failing on an off-world research facility, and light-fearing monsters prowl the now-dark halls. Four human scientists race to repair the base's power systems before they're devoured by the nightmares lurking in the shadows. The science team must coordinate and communicate to search for vital tools, failing fuse panels and vital sources of light, including flares and glowsticks. Without access to traditional weaponry, the scientists will have to improvise if they want to survive. The opposing two players control an endlessly respawning duo of monsters. Efficient hunters, but vulnerable to light.

Once Human: Once Human is a sandbox survival game developed by Starry Studio, where teams of players use firearms and supernatural abilities to survive against the Aberrant: grotesquely mutated monsters that decimated humanity and left ruined cities in their wake. Themed around "New Weird," a genre that combines the aesthetics and themes of science fiction, fantasy, and horror, the game evokes a powerful sense of unease with its awesome and powerful opponents that threaten the last remnants of mankind. Conflict is also closer to home, as hard-headed rationality compels the remaining humans to fight each other for the dwindling resources that remain. Players must band together to unite mankind, defeat the Aberrant threat, and uncover the mysteries of their enemies, or risk total destruction.

Ova Magica: Ova Magica is an ode to some of your favorite games, from Stardew Valley and Slime Rancher, to timeless classics such as Harvest Moon, Story of Seasons, Pokémon, Grandia, Jade Cocoon and Azure Dreams. In Ova Magica, you must manage a farmstead on the outskirts of a quaint little hamlet called Clover Town. Filled with colorful manga-stylized NPCs, you need to engage with them through conversations, gifts, and, of course, blob battles. As your relationship with the locals (some of whom you might choose to settle down with!) and town increases, the secrets of Clover Town start to unlock in front of you. And by secrets, we mean hidden temples, dungeons, and portals to exotic dimensions! These new worlds contain strange items and priceless artifacts that hold the key to the town's – and your own – future.

Aska: Aska lets up to four players work together, commanding villagers and preparing their tribe for the ancient threat that winter will bring.

Build outposts across these new lands and set up supply lines between settlements to transform your viking society from a village into an empire. Building a strong and stable society will give you a better chance of survival when Dead Winter hits and your tribe faces not only the harshest of elements, but the dark inhabitants of this world that have been lying in wait.

Superfuse: Alongside the release date reveal for Superfuse is a brand-new, visceral gameplay trailer highlighting two of the game's playable characters, called Enforcers – the brutal Berserker and the all-powerful Elementalist. The video also showcases just a fraction of the game's unique skill-tree system: the fuses, giving players a taste of the sheer depth and complexity that will allow them to create and customize their characters to a staggering degree. Set against a future backdrop where humanity has abandoned a dying Earth and set up colonies across the solar system, Superfuse is a bold and ambitious comic book-styled action RPG that features dynamic skill trees which let players choose a class and augment abilities to customize their Enforcer, as well as tons of loot to find and equip across procedurally generated levels.

Endless Dungeon: Endless Dungeon is a Rogue-lite Tactical Action game, set in the award-winning but often lethal Endless universe.

There's some folks been marooned here for decades, full of tall tales about what is and isn't; stories about how you might get out – or how you might be stuck here pretty much forever… It's all on you to figure out what's happenin', team up with some other castaways, and survive a brand spanking new story in the Endless universe.

Clash: Artifacts of Chaos: Clash: Artifacts of Chaos is a unique action-adventure game in terms of its gameplay and art direction. Visually, there is the signature ACE Team style (Zeno Clash 1 & 2, Rock of Ages, The Eternal Cylinder), whose original designs range from the unusual to the flamboyant. As for the gameplay, players will get to unleash the ferocity of the main character, Pseudo, in third-person combat. Aside from exploration and combat, Clash: Artifacts of Chaos stands out from other action-adventure games because of a unique mechanic: the Ritual. Each participant has artifacts with unique properties, and the outcome of this ancient tradition defines the rules of the fight.

Moon Mystery: Traverse the depths of the universe, starting with humanity's first step into space, the Moon. Unbeknownst to the rest of the world, after the original 1969 Moon landing, man continued to regularly go to the lunar surface and explore its haunted underground.

Dig detailed trenches, research new technologies such as poison gas and tanks, and make decisions that will have a profound and lasting effect on your success. Think like a Commander to either relive history – or redefine it.

Cygnus Enterprises: Cygnus Enterprises takes place in positive future, where mankind has put aside its differences to peacefully expand to new worlds. This expansion was once limited by technology, but the titular Cygnus Enterprises has created a faster-than-light drive, allowing humanity to travel across the universe and discover new worlds. Not all of these worlds are welcoming to humans, as there are powerful alien monsters that roam the wilderness and present a threat to settlers. Cygnus Enterprises put players as hired troubleshooters in a wild space frontier, where they must restore derelict outposts and turn them into bustling new settlements that will attract people from around the universe.

Masterplan Tycoon: In Masterplan Tycoon, real-time strategy and management sim fans will build interconnected production chains to deliver products to their intended destinations. Nodes are buildings, pins are contact points between them, and links are supply lines. The game will schematically depict all of these elements, allowing players to focus on managing their flow of resources. Mistakes won't be penalized. Masterplan Tycoon will prioritize relaxation and immersion through learning. The game will be intuitive from the beginning, but prepare players for more complex logistical challenges later on.

Floodland: The climate change was a catalyst for a succession of events that led to the destruction of our world; rising sea levels have inundated the coasts. Only you can help humanity survive by leading your band of survivors on a path to redemption. Starting with a lost bunch of survivors, you need to scavenge resources, rediscover technology and maintain the peace between differing factions as you strive to rebuild society.

Lead your customized army to victory on the proving grounds of a not too distant futuristic world consumed by corporate conflict.
