Ok, so, a little game called Final Fantasy (maybe you’ve heard of it?) decided to release its latest mobile version a little earlier than planned, so Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition is kind of dominating this week’s list of new releases arriving one day earlier than its previously announced February 9th release date. It’s free to try though, so try it out! But don’t let it overshadow some of the other excellent releases this week like Dandara, which we loved in our review, the quirky roguelite digger Dig Dog from Rusty Moyher, or even the over the top new bowling game StrikeMasters Bowling from the folks who brought us the Great Little War Game series. THAT’S unexpected. Anyway, check out the full list of this week’s new games below and let us know which ones you’ll be checking out.

You find a strange message from a relatively unknown app developer and a mysterious mobile game called ‘Dere Exe’. Like other platformer games, it has challenging levels, nostalgic pixel art graphics, retro music, but it has horror elements as well.
‘Dere Exe’ is an immersive narrative thriller using the interface of a normal platformer game. This game is not for the faint of heart. You were warned.
