Midnight Scenes: The Nanny
Octavi Navarro has quietly been making some of the best pixelated horror games around with his Midnight Scenes series. These devilish little treats are all separated from each other by settings and mechanics, but what ties them all together is masterful pacing and mind-bogglingly good art. Haven’t seen what all the hubbub is about? Midnight Scenes: The Nanny is Navarro’s take on 80s childhood horror and can be yours as a part of this bundle!
Fans of our blog may recognize Orangepixel as they’ve reliably put out banger after banger. With Residual they’ve turned their attention to the survival genre, but with a 2d twist. Explore this massive procedurally generated world, dig deep into the planet, and figure out the mysteries behind this strangely beautiful alien world.
Dig deep in Residual.
Cannele and Nomnom: Defective Agency
Sometimes you play games as a deeply competent character perfectly suited to their world. Other times you play a pair of lovable doofuses that need a little help to get through the day. Cannele and Nomnom are the latter. This detective adventure features two “disasters” (the devs’ words), and one of the most unique designs in game history. Right now the game is in the “investigation phase.” This means the game doesn’t reveal whodunnit quite yet, but asks the community what they think. All of this will coalesce into the “resolution phase” with the game’s proper endings later this year.
Get in on the fun and influence the end of Cannele and Nomnom’s story today! That’s all that we have in this itch.io Selects bundle, so make sure to pick up the whole thing here while you still can.
Want to experience the joy of real time strategy gameplay? What about the tactics of turn based adventuring? Well now you can have two great genres that mashup beautifully in the excellent Hero’s Hour! Assemble your armies, and take on the computer or your friends in this massive wargame ready to soak up your time.
Note: itch.io Summer Selects Bundle 2023 will only be around for another 4 days and change, at the time of writing.
