25. Pentiment

November 15, 2022 (Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Series S, Windows)

Pentiment is a 2D role-playing puzzle game set in the Duchy of Bavaria in the 16th century. The role of the player is to investigate several murders that have happened in the fictional town of Tassing. It is in the hands of the player to decide who is guilty of these crimes.

The art style of this game is exceptionally beautiful. The scenes themselves look like they are from a medieval manuscript. What sets this game apart from other puzzle games is that there is more of a focus on talking to other characters in the game to gather clues and information about recent events. Though you do have to listen closely to what everyone is saying and make sure that their stories add up. Another interesting aspect of this game is that time does matter. If you spend too much time on one lead the other leads will then have a chance to get away. So be very picky with your pursuit.

  • Discover 16th-century Europe through the eyes of master artists in Pentiment, a world brought to life through illuminated manuscript-inspired art and early printed books.
  • Explore the tales and mysteries of the Bavarian town of Tassing and Keirsau Abbey, meeting a diverse cast of characters, as you select different academic and social backgrounds.
  • Navigate through a time of significant religious and political upheaval, where your decisions can shape the future of the community for generations to come, and witness the effects of your choices unfold.

Kingdom Two Crowns is a side-scrolling strategy and resource management game. The player takes the role of a monarch whose goal is to build, expand and defend their kingdom against hostile invaders.

With a unique two-dimensional take on the genre, Kingdom Two Crowns offers some interesting and fun mechanics that can easily hook you into the game. I really loved hiring the local villagers I found across the map and assigning them certain jobs, for example, you can hire builders, archers, and farmers. Farmers will gather crops and grow food, builders will build defenses such as walls, and archers will hunt for food and at night occupy the walls to defend against the attackers known as the “Greed.”

The soundtrack in Kingdom Two Crowns is superb with a very mellow, calming vibe. It makes the atmosphere genuinely nice and very pleasing to just sit there and enjoy it.

16.Graveyard Keeper

August 15, 2018 (Nintendo Switch, Android, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, iOS, Microsoft Windows, Linux, macOS)

As you might guess from the title of this game, the player takes on the role of a graveyard keeper, who (as you might have guessed) takes care of a graveyard. You as the player are tasked with managing your business, gathering resources, cleaning the graveyard, and doing tasks for the people in the village. Maybe not the most wholesome but it sounds simple enough, though things do take a darker turn.

Graveyard keeper is a game that does not take itself too seriously. It has a nice contrast between its dark sense of humor and its grim setting. For example, one of the first things the game lets you do is extract flesh from a corpse that can be used to make burgers. Later these burgers can be sold at the inquisitor's witch-burning festival.

The questline is relatively simple and easy to complete. The story is very fun to follow with lots of humorous moments along the way.

  • Collect valuable materials, craft new items, and turn your graveyard into a successful business by exploring the surrounding areas for resources.
  • Choose between grinding up corpses for sale to the butcher or embarking on quests in a world filled with dead bodies.

If you're looking for some crazy heart-rushing experience. Well, then Mordhau might just be for you. Nothing is quite as thrilling as Mordhaus battle-frenzied first-person gameplay. This medieval slasher can offer countless hours of fun, as no two engagements ever feel the same.

At first, the complicated combat system may feel a bit too overwhelming but once you get the hang of it, you will be cutting through your enemies on the battlefield.

It is extremely satisfying landing one of these on your enemy. When it happens to you, not so much.

There are many game modes to choose from, my favorite being the “Frontline” which is a 64-player big team battle mode. There are also other game modes such as Battle-Royale, a horde mode, team deathmatch, and 1v1 duel servers.

Equip yourself with a massive arsenal of weapons and equipment for combat, including a greatsword, arrows from above, and fortifications for defense.

  • Experience intense and brutal combat with every strike felt and limbs flying as you wreak havoc on enemies.
  • Play with friends in cooperative Horde mode against waves of enemies or hone your skills offline against AI.
