4# The Long Reach

The Long Reach is a horror-thriller hell bent on screwing with your perception of things. Don't that sound fun, well I think it does. 

Game Overview 
The Long Reach takes place in New Hampshire, in the fictional town of Baervox. The game draws its inspiration from Lone Survivor and The Cave and all the classical adventures (except that The Long Reach is set in the present day). You don't play in a post-apocalyptic world or explore a fairy-filled fantasy world. You’re in the thick of it, just around the corner from the place where you buy your groceries.

Key Gameplay Features:
  • The game misuses stunning pixel art to create gruesome and unsettling images.
  • You’ll be playing as Calvin throughout the game - this is an example of the lies and deception that we have in store for you.
  • You won’t be forced to figure everything out. Escape if you wish, in fact we encourage you to run for your life!
  • Solve puzzles that require thinking outside the box. The box provided by our publisher was never used during the development.
  • You’ll be able to talk with plenty of characters. In fact, you’ll have a chance to pitch in every five lines or so.
  • A classic adventure game inventory filled with keys and weird stuff (note: no Elvish swords glowing faintly blue when evil is close in this game).
  • Original atmospheric and haunting soundtrack. The composer's not right in the head, he brought weird stuff home to use in the soundtrack. We’re all concerned for his cat.

Release Date: March 14th 2018
Platforms: Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PSVita and Steam (PC/Mac)

5# Dream Alone

Dream Alone is a 2D platformer with classic platform gameplay, unique abilities, deadly traps, horror elements and a dark storyline. A mysterious sickness strikes a quiet village, one by one, people fall into a coma. When your family becomes affected by the disease, you start a dangerous journey to find the mythical Lady Death who is said to have powers that can stop or even revert the disease.

Game Overview:
The story takes you through many lands, from forests, marshlands, caves and factories. Most of the levels have an alternate reality version, you can use this reality to get through areas you weren't able to before and discover new secrets.
A mistake, a wrong jump or simply not being careful enough is sure to equal death. Precise jumps and running, however, are not enough. Some traps need to be deactivated using the hero’s clone ability which allows the player to leave behind a copy of themselves and use it to activate any levers or pressure plates.
