The bundle has somewhat one thing for everybody with top-down RPGs, board video games, visible novels, and simply typically bizarre thingamabobs. A number of the featured video games look fascinating, though a couple of, particularly, caught my eye.
Do I Cross? is without doubt one of the featured visible novels that follows a trans lady with anxiousness about whether or not or not she ‘passes’ as feminine. She’s quickly capable of rework right into a ghost – the traditional white sheets form – to peek into others’ minds and discover out what they’re pondering. Queer folks have a unique relationship with public areas, and I’m excited to see a recreation sort out the topic.
SkateFPS is one other bundled recreation that struck me. It’s a witchy shooter the place you struggle papercraft monsters together with your ET-esque pointed finger and purple-painted nails. Alas, I can’t provide you with extra data because the recreation’s description is in Spanish, and I solely have an off-the-cuff, Duolingo stage of Spanish comprehension. In different phrases, no hablo español. There’s additionally a lot of quirky homosexual courting sims, alongside different cool stuff that you just may like.
