Best games you can play this week – hackers and heads

Another week of July goes by and another chance emerges to play some exciting new games (and attempt to catch up on some previously released ones too).

This week, sees a mix of unique indie and smaller releases which have something different to offer gamers.


Quadrilateral Cowboy

Release date: 25 July 2016 (PC)

In Quadrilateral Cowboy, you take the role of the Hacker who oversees the heists. The Hacker doesn’t act alone; he works with other agents in order to pull off heists.

Some agents will be tasked with infiltration or theft. Regardless of the agent’s special skills, everything is related back to the Hacker through VR goggles.

This gives the Hacker the ability to use his Deck to hack a building’s security features to allow the agent to continue moving forward.

Hacking is no simple button input. Players will need to do some actual hacking by typing in specific code on their keyboard to affect the game world.


Headlander

Release date: 26 July 2016 (PC, PS4)

Headlander is a fun spin on the action-platformer genre inspired by 1970s science fiction. At the start of the game, you can choose from three different heads. While you may be just a head, you aren’t powerless.

The major gameplay component of Headlander involves you taking over the bodies of humanoid Citizen and Shepards, robot dogs, turrets, robot vacuum cleaners, or anything with a universal docking ring.

Taking over different bodies is key to progressing as each body has its own colour clearance, and as a bonus your lasers become more powerful as you take over more powerful bodies.
