Publisher Wired Productions announced five new games launching under its banner tonight, during its first ever Wired Direct event. It also provided updates on a few of its other games, including a free DLC for The Falconeer.
The Wired Direct event featured a varied offering of titles, ranging from puzzle platformers to psychological thrillers and beyond. In case you've missed it, read on below for a round-up of all the announcements alongside a link where you can rewatch the entire thing, to check out all the new trailers.
Arcade Paradise is described as "a love letter to arcades" and will let you create your own dream version of one. You'll get to kit it out with "machines from the glory era, from simple vector-based games of the 70s all the way to the early 3D games of the mid-90s," and get a shot of nostalgia by taking its "35 playable arcade titles" for a spin.
Lumote's puzzle platformer shenanigans take place in a neon-lit underwater world full of strange creatures. You play as one of them, using your four tiny legs to jump across platforms, but also take direct control over your bulkier or floatier peers to overcome certain obstacles.
While we didn't yet see any gameplay of The Last Worker, we did learn that it is "a first-person narrative adventure centered around our struggle in an increasingly automated world."
Lemmings fans have something to look forward to in Tin Hearts, an puzzle game that lets them "explore beautiful environments, interact with objects, and look at things in new and different ways as they embark on a journey of discovery set in a magical toy-filled universe." The title focuses on a group of toy soldiers, however, its trailer suggests that a broader story, concerning their inventor's family, is also a part of the experience.
Last among the new announcements is Tiny Troopers: Global Ops, a new entry in the co-op shooter series that arrives later this year with couch co-op and online multiplayer support alongside next gen graphics.
The Falconeer's free Atun’s Folly DLC is also out now sending players to the eponymous settlement located in the Great Ursee. From there, you can pick up new missions that task you with raiding the Imperium's wealthy traders and facing new enemies.
Wrapping up the first ever Wired Direct's PC announcements is psychological thriller Martha is Dead, which remains on track to release sometime later this year. You can rewatch the entire event on YouTube and check out the Wired Productions Steam sale.
