Summer is waning, so vacations and holidays of avid gamers are waning as well. However, do not get upset about this, because August 2020 has prepared a lot of cool game surprises, and the end of the summer will become even more joyful than its beginning. So get ready – now we will announce our entire list!
The beginning of August
The end of summer was heralded by the shooter Hellbound, which was released on August 4th. The game was most influenced by the classic of the nineties, including the cult Doom. Fans are wondering – is Hellbound a nostalgic trip to the past in the best traditions of the genre, or just a hellish remake with old-fashioned design and mechanics? Well, welcome to hell, then you’ll find out.
On the same day, Relicta was released – a single-player logic adventure game with a space storyline. In the laboratory on the moon, regular experiments are being carried out, which, as it should be in a real action-packed game, should get out of control.
Rounding out the list of games released on this day, Skully is a platformer associated with the legend of the revived corn. Three relatives of a certain deity are struggling to get the island of paradise, and thus, the deity solves this issue, breathing life into an ordinary … skull. The task of the gamer is to sort out family feuds and save the picturesque island.
On August 7th the release of “Fast and Furious: Crossroads” was released, delighting both fans of the Grand Theft Auto series and fans of the aesthetics of the dashing nineties. Welcome to the dangerous world of organized crime and robbery!
The next day, the release of Company of Crimes was released – a promising turn-based strategy game executed in the atmosphere of Guy Ritchie and the criminal London of the 60s of the last century with a soundtrack from the early The Rolling Stones as a bonus.
The middle of August
Mid-August kicked off with the release of an old-fashioned adventure quest – Willy Morgan and the Curse of Bone Town went on sale on August 11th. The famous archaeologist goes missing, and ten years later, his son goes to the old pirate town to solve the mystery of his father’s disappearance.
On August 13th, RPG fans were pleased with the release of Hellraid – a project with a unique destiny. Hellraid was an independent game, but did not meet the expectations of the developers and was put on hold. Thus, the action game is released to the world as DLC to the Dying Light game.
