by Rainier on April 12, 2012 @ 3:00 p.m. PDT

Another day, another batch of games shipped to stores. Instead of giving them all their own posts, we grouped them, and so far there are announcements for:


We will update this throughout the day when new announcements become available. Read more for details ...

Avernum: Escape From the Pit (PC)

Avernum tells a story of imprisonment, rebellion, and the struggle for freedom against overwhelming odds, the tale of desperate exiles and their battle for survival and a land to call their own. It also features an enormous world, multitudes of dungeons to explore and treasures to find, and over 30 hours of fantasy action.

You have been banished to the underworld, never to see the light of day again.

The surface is ruled by the cruel Emperor Hawthorne, master of the Empire. All of the known lands are subject to his brutal command. Everyone who doesn't fit in is cast into the dark, volcanic pits of Avernum, far below the surface, where you die, a victim of starvation, horrible monsters, or despair.

With magic and steel, the Avernites are forging a new nation deep underground. You can join them and fight for safety. Or freedom. Or even, if you dare, revenge on the surface-dwellers who tried to destroy you.

Avernum: Escape From the Pit is available on Steam and on Spiderweb's web site.

Men of War: Condemned Heroes (PC)

Men of War: Condemned Heroes tells the story of one of the infamous Soviet penal battalions during the WWII. These battalions are famous for being formed under Stalin's "No step back!" order #227. They consisted of court-martialed officers that were given a chance to redeem their crimes, or incompetence, in blood by serving as the lowest enlisted rank in a battalion that was assigned the most dangerous tasks. These battalions' images are surrounded by many myths, and this game tells the truth about these regiments based on real evidence from their former members.

Take command of one of these notorious companies and lead it to victory against all odds through most of the war on the Eastern front. Fight from desperate battles in 1942 in the area of Volyn in the Ukraine, to the massive operation "Bagration" in the Brest area, as well as Magnush bridgehead and the Warsaw area in Poland and finally to attacks on the German Altdam and Stettin near the end of the war.
