Set on post-apocalyptic Earth where survival and ultimate dominance are all that matters, Devastation is a high action, teamplay oriented first person shooter. Powered by heavily modified, next generation Unreal® Engine technology, it pits teams of rebelling street fighters, gang leaders, mercenaries and ex-military fighters against overwhelming armies of high-tech corporate troopers.

In Rise of Nations, you'll create new cities, improve city infrastructures and expand national borders. Conquer foes through military might using everything from sling-shots to cannons to stealth bombers to nuclear weapons; corner the market on key commodities and consolidate power under your rule; wheel and deal across time with history's eminent cultures.

USA Link 1 <--> USA Link 2 <--> European Link

XIII features a conspiracy of epic proportions, and players will unravel clues behind the story’s compelling and mysterious events. XIII includes themes of amnesia, in which players must uncover sinister plots against themselves, the U.S. government, and even the president himself. The only clues players have are the roman numerals XIII tattooed on their shoulder and a key to a safe deposit box in a New York bank.

Get the City States off Worthplaying (1min01/13mb)

USA Link 1 <--> USA Link 2 <--> European Link

City States is intended to be the first evolution simulation ever, allowing the player, becoming the head of a Late Mesolithic period tribe, to take his tribe through the history to, finally, forge a Nation. While there are several games, claiming to give this option to the player, all of them simply propose a historic look for a fast military conflict. The evolution is nothing else that a chain of weaponry upgrades, with sometimes historical names, that have to be memorized and repeated by the player to win. The player always knows for sure what his final “country” will look like, no matter what his actions or the situation around is. The only unknown is the speed with which the player will follow this one-track road, - the faster, - the better the player is. City States, on the other hand, sets the player into an interactive world, where his actions, the behavior of other tribes and the world itself will act together to produce a multitude of possible outcomes.
