    Critical Reflex Showcases New Titles At Gamescom 2023

    CRITICAL REFLEX is coming to Gamescom later this month, and now the publisher revealed the full list of titles it’ll be showcasing to press and public at the event. From August 23rd-27th, you can experience hands-on demos for a number of great games in CRITICAL REFLEX’s upcoming line-up, including:


    Set in Neo-Barcelona, Altered Alma is a space opera Metroidvania featuring RPG and dating sim elements, a slick pixel-art presentation, and a gripping, non-linear story from award-winning writer Antony Johnston (Resident Evil Village, Dead Space). As a young mercenary named Jack, you’ll carve your way through ruthless gangsters in fast-paced combat while working for some of the city’s most dangerous people. Upgrade your hero with unique abilities, customize your ship, recruit and forge bonds with new crew members, and make difficult moral choices while trying to protect the ones you love.

    Gamescom attendees can check out the first playable demo of Altered Alma featuring the beginning area of the game (the Spaceport), plus a boss fight.


    Hell never looked this good! Save your soul in Freaked Fleapit, a wild cocktail of rhythm-based dungeon crawling and date sims that’ll have you dancing your way through nine circles of Hell to heart-pumping music. When the Reaper herself offers you a way to get out of the run-down fleapit that is Purgatory, you’ll have to go through each of the nine circles of Hell, beating any demons along the way to free your soul! Sounds easy enough…

    Visitors can go hands-on with two circles of Hell, three dates, and two boss fights.


    Outcast Tales (previously titled Ragtag Crew) is a turn-based tactical rogue-lite drawing inspiration from Darkest Dungeon with a delightful twist of humor, set in a post-apocalyptic desert where your party members can bicker or forge bonds together. Each character has a unique combination of class and personality, which can drastically change the outcomes of the journey. Outcast Tales heads to Gamescom with new elements like enhanced visuals and the voice of Samuel Barnett (Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency) as its charismatic narrator.

    Visitors can check out a new hands-on demo with all gameplay systems implemented.


    To save her daughter’s spirit from malevolent forces, gunslinger Rose must journey through the realms of the Underwest. Along her path, she’ll recover long-forgotten skills and abilities, wield awesome powers, and face countless foes. Rose and Locket is a lighting-fast action-adventure game featuring a grand story about loss and devotion in a breathtaking, cinematic, hand-painted world.

    Experience Rose and Locket’s new playable demo at Gamescom featuring previously unseen gameplay, including a fully finished biome and the Wrath boss fight.

    In addition, visitors to CRITICAL REFLEX’s public booth at Gamescom can play the atmospheric deck-building strategy game IRONHIVE, the futuristic city-building game Complex SKY, and the pixel-art roguelite-auto-battler Deadlock Station.
