- ElecHead – Created by a one-person development team and prototyped as part of a school contest, ElecHead is a clever and challenging 2D puzzle-platformer that will spark your imagination. You play as Elec, a small robot on a mission to bring back light to the world. When Elec touches walls, floors, platforms and switches, he activates them by making electricity run through them. He can also detach and throw his head to trigger things remotely, but be careful: If he doesn’t get his head back within 10 seconds, he’ll shut down. Elec will have to use his head, literally and figuratively, to find a way out of this trap-ridden facility.
- AI: THE SOMNIUM FILES – nirvanA Initiative – Special Agents Mizuki and Ryuki, along with their AI partners Aiba and Tama, are tasked to solve bizarre serial killings while unveiling the mysterious plot known only as the Nirvana Initiative.
