Target Acquired: They Always Run

They Always Run, from Alawar Premium, is a space-western-style action platformer starring a 3-armed bounty hunter named Aiden. The empire has fallen and criminals are filling the void of power, so tracking them down has become big business... and you're out to find the galaxy's biggest offenders, all while working to uncover a grand conspiracy. You hunt your bounties across the civilized central planets, the outlying wild west worlds, and even across planets that were once homes to ancient civilizations. Collect bounties in the form of information and cash, and spend your money on better equipment, stronger weapons, and new abilities. Use your three arms to acrobatically hack and slash your way through enemies while strategically defending and counterattacking, deflecting energy blasts back at enemies, and performing stealth kills.

The game is now available for PC via Steam, GOG, and Epic Store.

Target Acquired: UnDungeon

You may not be aware of this, but literally every game in development right now is a roguelike action-RPG. All of them... OK, so that's not true, but there are so many developers out there that are churning out mindless (soulless?) Demon Souls-inspired dungeon crawlers year after year, repeating screen after screen of dark pixelly caves and dungeons. Fortunately, some developers aren't satisfied with the basic constructs and spice things up with a bit of style, with standouts like Risk of Rain and Enter the Gungeon bringing something new to the experience. UnDungeon, from Laughing Machines (game site), aims to make its mark with its unique art style and disturbing creature designs. Some great calamity has caused seven different dimensions to merge into one, each bringing its own unique architecture and species of beings. Taking on the role of a sentient being from one of these seven realms - each with its own unique abilities - you seek to uncover the mysteries of the new world and what has brought these dimensions together. Per genre standards, you'll be facing tough enemies in a procedurally generated world with permadeath that restarts your adventure should you fail.

The game is now avilable for PC, Mac, and Linux via Steam, GOG, and Epic Store, and Xbox One via Microsoft Store.

Target Acquired: Tunche

Tunche, from LEAP Game Studios, is a beat 'em up with roguelike elements that allows for 4P cooperative play. The game is based on a Peruvian legend about a shapeless creature called Tunche that confronts people with their inner selves, leaving the weak to die. A group of explorers are on the hunt for Tunche, searching for it in the Amazon rainforest and using a combination of melee combat and shaman magic to combat enemies and bosses. The game has an illustrative aesthetic, offering hand-drawn characters, animations, and backgrounds.

The game is now available for PC via Steam, Switch via eShop, and Xbox One and Xbox X/S via Microsoft Store, and it's also planned for release on PS4.
