Hindsight 20/20 is a cool-looking action adventure game coming to consoles and PC sometime in 2020.

Conan Unconquered is a real-time strategy game being made by Petroglyph, a studio formed by some of the original developers on the Command & Conquer series. It’s also a wave-survival game like They Are Billions, which all sounds great on paper. It’s slated to arrive on PC in the first half of 2019.
Wargaming, creator of World of Tanks, is making a Diablo-style dungeon crawler and put out a new trailer showing gameplay today. It looks very sturdy and has a bunch of loot and flashing lights, but because it’s Wargaming I’m still a little skeptical. On the plus side though, it’s not free-to-play.
Here’s the first trailer for that MediEvil remaster Sony mentioned last year. Sir Daniel Fortesque is looking as fine as he possibly can, given his state. While the remake isn’t coming to the PS4 until sometime in 2o19, it’s a good day to remind folks about games starring skellingtons.

Behold Anodyne 2: Return to Dust, the follow-up to 2013's Anodyne, a delightful Zelda-like. Ditching the gorgeous pixel art of the original, the sequel looks a lot grimier.
