This extremely ambitious real-time war sim has been in development for at least ten years. And is the work of the team responsible for the popular Napoleonic Wars expansion for Mount & Blade: Warband. In Battle Cry of Freedom, Flying Squirrel Entertainment stays in the 19th century but turns. Its attention to the American Civil War. Playing as an Alliance or Confederation, you’ll take part in online battles that can host up to 500 players. This is insane, although there are also Commander Battles that can host up to 800 bots per server. Infantry, artillery, and specialists are the main branches of the military. And there are over 120 weapons to learn and use. All in all, this looks like a huge achievement and worth checking out for military sim fans and history buffs alike.

Developer: D&A Studios, LLC.

Starting price: ‌ ‌ $9 |‌ ‌ £6.19 ‌|‌ ‌ AU$12.95

Here’s a neat setup for a horror game: You’re a supernatural private eye tasked with finding ghosts in your clients’ homes. In a first-person ghost hunting simulator, you will use equipment such as an EMF meter. A camera, a thermometer, and an audio recorder to collect evidence of pesky ghosts or other supernatural phenomena. Set in the city of New Eidolon, successful investigations lead to new clients and locations. And ghosts spawn randomly with new behaviors, so you should always keep your PI hat on. Conrad Stevenson’s Paranormal PI is in early access and is expected to launch no later than early 2023, with ten new locations, and new ghosts added over that period.

Most rhythm games have a genre-independent presentation, but History of Music throws all its weight into the 1970s. This is present in the art style and fashion sense, as well as in the soundtrack, which consists of 26 original songs. The background of the story is mesmerizing: the protagonist Gabriel is “trying to come to terms with his situation through connections to his musical memory,” but his “situation” doesn’t seem to be spoiled. Either way, it looks like a great and unique take on the rhythm genre.

Starting Price:‌ ‌ $14.39 |‌ ‌ £11.15 |‌ ‌ AU$20.65

Here’s a nice puzzle game about programming robots to “create endlessly repeating assembly lines,” or in more familiar gaming jargon, to solve puzzles. In 50 stages, you will place robots on grids and then use a series of commands to determine their behavior, and although each stage must be solved in order to move on to the next, “there are no predefined solutions.” There are leaderboards and “bar graphs” (essentially a record of which commands you used to solve a puzzle), and there’s even a .gif exporter to showcase your ingenious approach to controlling robots.

Kingdom Life

Release date:‌ March 1

Developer:‌ Studio Company

Starting Price:‌ ‌$7 |‌ ‌GBP ‌‌‌AU$10

This is a “turn-based global strategy game” where you find a nation, grow it, control it, and inevitably go to war against other states. Time stretches from the Middle Ages to the present day, and there are 160 “unique laws” to impose on your population, as well as over 100 technologies to develop. Sure, there’s warmongering, but you’ll also be making alliances and diplomatic successes, as well as getting the usual resources, building cities, and more. It looks like an exciting take on a global strategy game, not least because of its simple yet attractive pixelated style.
