Games have the power to transcend boundaries and connect people across the globe no matter who they are or where they’re from. Tune in from the comfort of your computer as we take you on a world tour of games. Each week, you’ll meet a lineup of game developers from a different place as they show you their latest and greatest. We’ll have time for Q&A each week and will feature some surprises along the way!

Wave Break is set in a crime-filled, 1980s era Miami Vice inspired world, filled with outlandish characters, gorgeous environments, and a fresh synthwave soundtrack, where players can score massive points with sick trick combos, play with friends online, or enjoy the single player campaign mode.
ULTIMATE DUNGEON CLEANER by Alex Fleming
Ultimate Dungeon Cleaner is a fast paced, heart-pounding cleaning game where you play as Grem, a goblin who must clean up after battles as fast as he can. Bodies and debris litter the dungeon floors, if Grem doesn’t clean it all up in time he’ll have a panic attack! Not to mention his boss will kill him. Keep the Lost and Found tidy, pick up power ups, skillfully dance around difficult terrain in this top down retro thrill ride.
SPELLBEARERS by Whim Independent Studios
Spellbearers is a top-down, 2D, cooperative, Twin Stick Shooter. There is a slew of spells that you collect to power up, ranging from energy grenades that bounce off walls, lightning blasts that unleash devastating chain damage, protective swords made of destructive light, and much, much more! Become the Spellbearer and battle against the hordes of magical enemies to liberate the rulers of three kingdoms that have been overtaken by strong dark forces. With staff in hand, do you have what it takes to uphold the title of The Spellbearer?
CORPSE CASTLE by Wicked Cake Games
Corpse Castle is a finely tuned, high-velocity Platform Fighter with a focus on unique and bizarre mechanics: I’ve integrated elements of Bullet Hell and Twin-Stick Shooter to create intense 360o directional combat, designed a unique health system to propagate a vicious back-and-forth pacing, created a dynamic shifting landscape for an ever changing battlefield, and powered the entire thing with a procedural animation system that generates all character motion & animation in real-time.
BRUTAL GROUNDS by AGOG Entertainment
Brutal Grounds is a fast-paced competitive top-down multiplayer shooter where you equip a war-ball with various weapons and abilities to battle it out in game modes like Capture the flag, Control, Deathmatch, and more. Matches take place on thoughtfully designed maps requiring a high level of situational awareness – creating a play-style that relies not only on mechanical skill, but also map strategy, area control, flag passing, and strong team coordination. With no characters or back-stories, Brutal Grounds does away with the “Hero” component in order to focus on a unifying balanced movement and fighting system that makes the game play much more like an actual sport.
GLADIUS by Cat Quartet Games
In Gladius, play as cunning Roman spectators trying to make the most money by betting on rigging the gladiatorial games. Each round, players secretly place bets on competing gladiator teams. Through the skillful use of underhanded tactics, players can help and hinder teams to alter the outcome of each battle. The player with the most money at the end of three rounds wins! Will you walk away with toga pockets brimming full of gold, or will you be left without a single denarius to your name?
