5 games that are flying under everyone’s radar

As we approach the holiday season, there are at least two or three games you are already eyeing to pick up in the coming months.

Love it or hate it, these games are usually extremely well-marketed and will sell millions of units regardless of how they are critically received.

That’s why it’s important to pay attention to the little guys.

Check out 5 games flying below the radar that you need to know about:

Echo (PC)

Release date: TBA

After a century in stasis the girl En arrives at her destination: A Palace out of legend, a marvel of the old civilization eons gone, still awaiting its first human occupants.

Out here, using forgotten technologies, she hopes to bring back a life that shouldn’t have been lost.

Secret Legend (PC/PS4/ Xbox One)

Release date: 2017

Secret Legend is an isometric action-adventure game about a tiny fox.

The game takes a number of cues from classic RPGs(most notably Zelda) all with a refreshing and unique art-style.

The Fall: Episode 2 (PC/PS4/Xbox One/Wii U)

Release date: 2017

The story centers on A.R.I.D., an artificial intelligence installed in a technologically-advanced combat space suit, as she navigates a decaying industrial facility in search of medical attention for the suit’s injured pilot and heavily features metroidvania gameplay concepts including progressive objectives and non-linear maps.

In the meantime you should definitely pick up Episode 1 on the cheap right now.

Deliverance: Kingdom Come (PC, PS4, Xbox One)

Release date: 2017

Kingdom Come: Deliverance is an upcoming role-playing video game developed by Warhorse Studios.

It is set in the medieval Kingdom of Bohemia, an Imperial State of the Holy Roman Empire, with a focus on historically accurate and realistic content.

The Bunker (PC/PS4/Xbox One/Mobile)

Release date: Out now

The Bunker is a psychological horror adventure, coming to PC, PS4 and XBoxOne in September and to mobiles later in 2016. The game is completely in live action – everything you see is real.

It tells the story of John, the last remaining survivor of a nuclear bunker, born in the bunker on the day the bombs fell.

Now 30 years later, he is completely alone, everyone he has ever know has died. But now the only place he has ever known is about to become his greatest nightmare…

    It seems I’m in the minority. I’m not interested in modern games because I prefer old games from 80s, 90s and early-mid 00s. Oldies are more original, complex, interesting and fun, less demanding and less restrictive. Tetris is my most favorite game.

    Deliverance is under the radar? It was spammed on YouTube back in 2014 when it was in alpha or beta or whatever. Less under the radar and more that people lost interest which seems common for these early access games.
