Gwent: The Witcher Card Game (XONE)
Logic December 2018
A stand-alone version of collective card game (CCG) that debuted in the bestselling RPG, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, by CD Project RED, and quickly became acknowledged as one of the best minigames in history. In Gwent: The Witcher Card Game players compete against each other with progressively collected decks of cards from five different factions. As in most CCG, the gameplay is turn-based, but quite unusually, the player’s objective is to gather more attack points than opponent. Cards are placed in three different rows, respectively for melee soldier, ranged units and siege machines like catapults. Our army’s strength can be both increased and decreased with special cards, unique skills of commanders or weather effects. Aside from complex multiplayer mode, the game also offers an episodic story campaign.

Death Squared (XONE)
Logic 14 March 2017
An online logic game focusing on tight cooperation between the participants, created by the Australian SMG Studio. The players assume the roles of sympathetic, cubic robots whose goal is to reach the platforms bearing the same color as their body. The task is not easy however, as different mechanisms and traps were placed in the levels, such as laser sensors (once activated, shuffle the conditions of the map), or energy beams that can be blocked by the robot bearing the same color, but constitute a deadly threat to others. Since the movements of the robots are usually interconnected, solving the puzzles requires strict cooperation and being able to coordinate the moves of particular robots. Death Squared offers over 100 different levels divided into three game modes, namely the story campaign (for one or two players), the PARTY mode (for two or four players), and the special Vault mode, which is also designed for a two- or four-player experience, and features levels rated by the developers as too difficult to be included in the two modes mentioned above.

You can also test your tracks yourself, by steering the rollercoaster in the arcade mode. The game features fully destructible environment and advanced physics, apparent in e.g. the spectacular results of your less successful experiments.
Logic September 2018
A logic game with arcade elements, which lets you play with some virtual clay. You play from a perspective of a child, spending time in his or her room on viewing an amazing book. Each of its pages is a new world built entirely of clay. In-game levels offer a variety of action/logic challenges, most of which are based on the physics of objects – the engine mimics the movement of clay objects quite realistically. In order to solve puzzles, you must properly terraform lands and reshape some structures, move smaller objects or mould them into something else (e.g. turn a small ball into a piece of Swiss cheese or a gingerbread man), as well as control a variety of vehicles. Claybook is very forgiving, letting you rewind time in order to fix your mistakes. Apart from solo play, the game offers co-op mode for up to four people. You can also build your own levels thanks to the in-built editor. The game’s light-hearted atmosphere is reflected by its colorful 3D graphics and pleasant audio.
