Monochroma (PC)

In Monochroma, players are transported to a dystopian state during the 1950s, after two brothers witness an evil corporation commit a terrible crime. Without cut scenes, text or speech, players must delve help the brothers work together to solve puzzles and save the world.

Early in the game, the younger brother injures his leg, and the older brother must support him. At times, the player needs to stop carrying him to solve puzzles, but he can only be placed in safe, well-lit areas because he's scared of the dark.

Monochroma is available on Steam for $19.99/€19,99/£14.99.

The Wolf Among Us: Episode 4 - In Sheep's Clothing (XBLA)

Based on Bill Willingham's acclaimed comic book series, "Fables," The Wolf Among Us puts players in the role of Bigby Wolf, a man known as The Big Bad Wolf. He's now exiled from the land of fairy tales and is the sheriff of a hidden community in New York City. Bigby has been tasked by the bureaucrat Snow White to maintain order within the society of mythical creatures and characters. The Wolf Among Us examines the lives of beings from the pages of myth and lore who are now trying to survive on the mean streets of New York City.

The fourth episode, "In Sheep's Clothing," is rated "M" for "Mature" by the ESRB and is available on Xbox Live for $4.99. A Season Pass option enables consumers to buy the rest of the five-episode series for the discounted price of $14.99 instead of $4.99 per episode.
