    Two Point Campus

    Theme hospital and Dungeon Keeper were one of my favorite pastimes, therefore Two Point Campus by Two Point Studios is one of the simulation games that would get my undivided attention once it is available on August 9th. So design a campus for your fellow students to graduate from, be it a spy, wizard, or robotics course, and as they graduate, rinse and repeat.

    Hard West 2

    Developer Ice Code Games and Publisher Good Shepherd Entertainment portrayal of a Cowboy tactical RPG, Hard West 2 will be released on August 5th, 2022 on PC via Steam & GOG.com.

    Thymesia

    The dark souls-like genre fills a void for players who have finished the Elder Ring and are still hungry for more action RPGs. Fear not, as Thymesia will be here soon on August 18th, 2022 on Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PC, as announced by developer OverBorder Studio and publisher Team17. Slash, dash, and parry your way against enemies in fast-paced combat and an intricate plague weapon system.

    Seen as the answer to all the kingdom’s ailments, alchemy became a widely used practice across the land, with denizens welcoming it into their homes, using it to enhance and heal as they saw fit. When the price of alchemy became too steep, attempts to halt its use were made, each as woefully unsuccessful as the last, with the catastrophic consequences felt across the realm. Within days, the kingdom fell to chaos, infected monsters prowling the blood-soaked streets, all hope of a cure lost.

    Corvus is the kingdom’s final hope, the fate of Hermes resting in his feathered hands. The truth is buried deep in the memories Corvus left scattered throughout the punishing world, and only by collecting these lost memories can the kingdom be saved, but each time he dives back in, trying to piece together the truth, all he finds is more secrets.
