Eastshade Release Date for Linux and Windows Announced Along With a New Trailer

First-person exploration games haven't really been done to a major degree - even though things like Perfect have aimed to give you a bit of that. In cases like that, you have a game that relies on virtual reality to relax the user and allow you to explore a very small world.

Smith and Winston Enters Early Access for Linux and Windows

The rise of Geometry Wars 15 years ago on the original Xbox led to a slew of imitators across all platforms. However, the biggest thing it did was revive the long-dead twin-stick shooter genre. Small attempts had been made to revive it in the form of a new Robotron game in the late '90s, but nothing stuff until Bizarre Creations' fun little side game brought the shooting sub-genre back into the limelight again.
