Escape String — Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One

Escape String is a 2D puzzle game where a small humanoid robot wakes up in the debris of a landfill inside a large factory and will try to explore it to find out who it is and what is happening.
The gameplay is based on perspective: the player must be able to make a small robot cross a series of areas, calculating the spaces between the robot and the obstacles.
The obstacles will initially be static, but as you advance they will become more and more dynamic and varied. There are currently 40 levels, with 8 types of obstacles.
By ending the level with the minimum possible number of indications (input) and at the same time providing these commands in a single line (string), the “”gold chip”” of that particular level will be unlocked.
The “”gold chip”” will be used to unlock new skins for our robot.

Kaiju Wars — Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One

Play out a Kaiju movie as the mayor of Floatio city, tasked with holding off the overwhelming strength of a Kaiju attack with (hopelessly) outclassed military. Defend your city as five unique and devastating Kaiju grow in power with every attack. Unfortunately, they can’t be killed, but can be slowed down and forced to fall back… for now.

Monsters move towards the nearest building, and the scientists have mathed the exact odds of where they might go next. Build sacrificial army bases and airfields to distract the Kaiju. If standard methods aren’t enough, deploy experimental weapons such as freeze rays and transforming mechas to keep them at bay. Or you can always park tanks and jets in the monsters’ path to slow them down (don’t worry, we have a good insurance policy). If all your efforts fail, don’t be ashamed and run away! Be prepared to evacuate the laboratory using transport trucks, boats, or planes when the Kaiju get too close.

Play missions from all over the world as you progress through the fight against Kaiju in a 15+ hour story-based campaign. Throughout the campaign, you’ll have the chance to gain an advantage with upgradeable ACE units and Project Deck customization. Test your wits in tactical puzzles, command dozens of units in large-scale scenarios, and fend off repeated attacks in defense missions while developing your city economically. And if you’re hungry for more, test your command skills in weekly challenges!
