How’s that for a bold claim, eh? Although with the likes of Vox, Little Racers STREET, and Kairo all being part of this particular lineup, I’m inclined to agree that these are in fact hidden gems. Not overly familiar with the rest though, so… hard to say for sure. Whatever the case, like their initial outing, this one is also quite Steam-centric. Nothing wrong with that, right? Heck, I’m sure lots of people actually prefer it that way.
With ten games across two price tiers ($1.99 and $4.99) and Steam keys across the board, there aren’t many reasons to ignore this one. Believe me, they’re not gonna be this cheap ever again. Do keep in mind that while it’s quite playable, Vox is currently an Early Access (alpha/beta) release. Oh and each tier contains a bonus game, set to be revealed at a later date. Intriguing!
