Vigil: Blood Bitterness – Players are put in the dark and disturbing world of an ancient civilization in this stylised gothic horror adventure game. With 3D graphics and point-and-click playability, players must avoid deadly traps, solve puzzles and even devour the faces of slaves – all to reveal the secrets of the past and exact revenge on Evil, with the ultimate goal of freeing themselves from the torment. (Steam PC available in English)

Avencast: Rise of the Mage - This action role-playing game is set in a perilous fantasy world where players begin the journey at the renowned wizardry academy Avencast.  Honing skills in potions, spell castings, weapons and combat, players must prepare themselves for the demonic hoarde that is about to descend. Armed with over 60 different combat moves and spells, and over 100 different equipment items, players must cast spells, solve riddles and take on bosses to fight off the nightmarish creatures that threaten the survival of this world.
