No one has ever complained that the age of sail naval battle genre has been over-saturated, so I was looking forward to spending some time with Abandon Ship, now in early access. Snagging some mechanics from FTL, a Kraken or two from Pirates of Caribbean and iconography from 19th-century maps, Abandon Ship seems to be sailing along well towards a full release.

Invisible Inc so far has great likelihood of becoming a unique and exciting experience. I’ve played tons of turn-based strategy games before, and I’ve played tons of stealth games before; but adding the two together is something very different. Trying to sneak an agent into an area without being detected is a combination of both sound strategy and a solid grasp of stealth mechanics; skills I have rarely used in conjunction with each other.
