The holidays are coming up fast, and so 'tis the season to start thinking about gifts for friends and family. Arcen's catalog of games has really swelled this year, and you may have missed some of our titles. Or you may be new to Arcen, and may have overlooked our excellent older titles. Here's a quick guide to finding out more about what we've got to offer:
A fast-paced, tactical rogue-lite that critics and players are calling Arcen's best title since our original hit AI War: Fleet Command.
AI War: Fleet Command
A truly unique blend of grand strategy with traditional RTS mechanics, pitting you against one of the most notable AIs in strategy gaming in a tense, fun, David vs Goliath scenario. Five massive expansions and counting over the last four years!
A completely unique subverting of the "god game" genre, this game turns the normal expectation of being able to control everything on its head. Instead you manage unruly subjects indirectly in this turn-based hilarity-generator. Also spawned a great expansion pack, Nihon no Mura!
A Valley Without Wind
A sprawling, infinite, procedurally generated 2D sidescroller. Loosely a "Metroidvania" title mixed with some citybuilding (think Actraiser) and SHMUP elements. Thanks to our loyal fans, we also include A Valley Without Wind 2 for free when you purchase it!
A Valley Without Wind 2
A complete reinvention of the Valley franchise, set in a different part of the same world. Gameplay alternates between two complementary modes: brief, tightly-designed platforming segments with character customization and Contra-like combat; and quick strategic turns on the world map where you order your troops to fight, scavenge, build, recruit, farm, and use special powers.
A surprisingly deep block-based puzzle game that for once isn't just another "match 3" title. Having more in common (vaguely speaking) with Panel de Pon and Tetris Attack, Tidalis includes a wealth of gameplay modes that can keep you engaged for dozens of hours.
Our biggest undiscovered gem, this top-down 2D action-adventure title is a mixture of atmospheric horror storytelling an environmental puzzles. Features branching paths to multiple endings, a massive overworld split up into distinct thematic regions, and nearly a hundred hand-crafted levels with multiple difficulty levels and often multiple solutions.
