The beautifully animated action adventure game Iconoclasts lands on Switch August 2. Think of it as a fusion of Metroid and Mega Man that controls like a dream and explores the role of religion in shaping a society. You can watch Kotaku’s Tim Rogers interview the creator here.

In unexpectedly wonderful news, Xbox’s Major Nelson revealed Ori and the Blind Forest is getting an expansion on PC and Xbox One this year. There aren’t any details on what to expect yet, but if you haven’t yet played one of this year’s best games, get on it!

This is Mark of the Old Ones, a physics adventure-platformer with a Lovecraftian twist in which you're some sort of a tentacled abomination. Watching the trailer I'm reminded more of Gish than anything. A really pretty, horror-themed Gish. It has an ongoing Kickstarter campaign, if you're interested.
