Recap


As usual, the PCGS highlighted a lot of smaller games. Some of which were very derivative or bland. There were a few standouts. Maneater: The Game, an open world RPG where you play as a shark, looks like a blast. Sable has unique and engrossing visuals in a puzzle-exploration package. There's also Satisfactory, a 1st person, 3D, co-op take on Factorio. Overall, a nice effort from smaller PC-focused devs.

I bit the bullet for everyone and entered the Founder's program for Stardock's Star Control reboot. I can't say much under the NDA, but they're really putting a lot of work into it.

As for everything else, there's some interesting bits there. Count me intrigued.
