Whilst it seems like everyone and their Granny is currently playing Mass Effect Andromeda, some of you might be interested in something a bit more low key. Luckily there are two new indie releases today for you to check out. First up is Worlds of Magic: Planar Conquest priced at $28.99. Players are challenged to become the supreme sorcerer in this turn-based strategy game from Teyon. Explore and conquer an almost limitless number of uniquely generated universes using military and magical power to overcome your foes. Gameplay sees players finding cities, raising armies, and casting over 400 spells in order to lead your civilization to victory.
Today’s other release is 88 Heroes from Rising Star Games, developers who obviously have a thing for the number 8. The story goes that it’s 8:08am on 8th August 1988, and the evil Dr. H8 has brought the world to the brink of total annihilation! His demands are simple: pay $88 octillion within 88 minutes, or Dr. H8’s 88 thermo-nuclear warheads will wipe out the Earth! Players will need to infiltrate Dr. H8’s lair with the help of 88 of the strangest, dumbest and most pointless superheroes ever. There are 88 levels to get through and only 88 seconds to complete each level. Thankfully the game isn’t priced at $88, instead you can pick it up here for $14.99.
88 Heroes Langauge Support: English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Japanese, Portuguese, Dutch.
Finally, whilst this is not strictly a new release, Artifex Mundi have compiled a new Fantasy Bundle which you can also pick up today for $14.99. The bundle includes both Grim Legends: The Forsaken Bride and Eventide: Slavic Fable, two hidden-object games for the adventure enthusiasts among us.
