Downwell (PS4, Vita)

Make your way further and further down into the darkness filled with nasty creatures and mysterious secrets to collect the spectacular red gems scattered about the rocks.

Level 22 (Vita)


Are You Late For Work? Start Panicking!

Gary is an office worker who oversleeps after a drunken night out on the town. Here’s where it gets tricky, because this isn’t the first time Gary’s been late for work, and he could be fired if he’s spotted arriving at his desk after everyone else yet again. So he’ll have to prove he’s smart and sneaky enough to make his way up all the 22 floors between him and his office without being seen.

Hide in closets, crawl through air vents, slink along the walls… nobody must spot you!
Use everything in your reach to get to the end of the level: hide behind a newspaper, smash a vending machine with a well-aimed kick, or use donuts to lure the security guards away.

From the basement to the boss’s office via the research and development labs, explore the zany little universe of LEVEL 22, Gary’s Misadventures.

After reading all of this, I can honestly say that it is another good month for subscribers. For two consecutive months, I am very happy with the announcements. I love the variety and that we get both AAA and indie games. I absolutely need to try Just Cause 3. I’m also very curious about Downwell. What do you think? Are you happy with these choices? Let us know in the comments.
