It’s a busy Friday for new releases this week with four new indie games hitting the Xbox One store. First up we have Space Hulk: Ascension from Hoplite Research, a 3D, digital, turn based, strategy game. Set in the isolated corridors and tomb-like chambers of ancient vessels lost in the graveyard of space, players lead a small force of fearless Space Marine Terminators in a ferocious fight for survival against hordes of predatory, alien Genestealers. Pick it up here for $34.99.
Next we have Atomic Heist from Live Aliens, a top down 2D rogue-like sci-fi shooter. Players can use power-ups to enhance their ship, weaken the enemies and boost abilities, with the goal of grabbing the core from the enemy and fighting your way out from the alien infested space station. Buy it now for $10.99.
Also releasing today is Babylon 2055 Pinball from Plug in Digital and Shine Research. As it sounds, it’s a pinball game sporting realistic physics, with 6 original tables, 9 different table game mini-modes, and 1 endless special table. Pick it up here for $4.99.
Finally, we have Phantom Trigger from TinyBuild and Bread Team. You play as Stan, a white-collar middle-class worker living an ordinary life that gets disrupted by a mysterious event. Discover a brand new world and connect the dots along a branching story through neon-demonic worlds. The game has 4 alternate endings and merges elements from slasher, RPG, and rogue-like genres. Buy it here for $14.99.
