Embark on a Thrilling Adventure this Weekend with These Must-Play Games


Cult of the Lamb 

Cult of the Lamb is an action-packed roguelite that puts you in control of a possessed lamb. Saved from utter annihilation by an ominous stranger, you must repay your debt by building a loyal following in his name. In a world full of false prophets, start your cult by venturing out into mysterious regions to build a community of woodland followers.  

Collect resources to build new structures, give sermons to reinforce the faith of your flock, and perform rituals to appease the gods. All of which will spread the word and transform your following into the one true cult. Along the way, you’ll need to explore the vast sprawling randomly generated world and fight off hordes of deadly enemies or rival cult leaders to assert your dominance as the mighty lamb god.

We took a closer look at For the King II in our indie showcase where we reviewed all the gameplay. Check out the blog post for our thoughts.  

The Rogue Prince of Persia  

The Rogue Prince of Persia transforms the classic gameplay from the Prince of Persia series into a roguelite. Lead the Prince in his fight against the terrifying Hun army as you master acrobatic moves that blend both platforming and combat. Travel across vibrant Persia and meet a colourful cast of characters as you work to defend your home from corrupt Hun warriors.  

Utilise powerful acrobatic moves to outsmart your enemies as you wall-run, avoid traps, and explore pesky hard-to-reach areas. To further aid you in battle, choose from a variety of weaponry and medallions to inflict devasting effects on your opponents.  

Please note The Rogue Prince of Persia will be released on May 27th 2024 in early access. Gameplay may change and develop over time during the early access period.
