A selection box of treats lies before us this week, albeit only a medium-size one. Not as lavish as a selection box featuring full-size chocolate bars, but more enticing than a small box containing a meagre handful of â€œfun sizeâ€ candy. Trust Cadbury to find a way to make Freddos ever smaller.
The intriguing 2D sci-fi noir murder mystery Lacuna, and Horatio Goes Snowboarding â€“ a homage to a certain retro game of yore â€“ are both due on all formats.
Both the PS4 and Xbox One also get Winter Sports Games – 4K Edition, which appears to simply be a 4K version of a casual Switch game from 2019, and the party package Planet Quiz: Learn & Discover. That last one is also due Christmas Day on the Switch eShop.
On the Xbox Store, we can also expect the shadow-based puzzle adventure In My Shadow, with over 50 brainteasers to solve, the action rogue-lite Tunnel of Doom â€“ which mixes tower-defence with melee and ranged combat â€“ and the interactive FMV story Vegas Tales, which comprises of over 200 clips.
Then on PSN thereâ€™s Mia’s Christmas â€“ a casual game that casually mentions an easy platinum â€“ a vague â€œsimulatorâ€ known as Santa’s workshop [sic], and the green-fingered turn-based puzzler Gardener’s Path from Ratalaika. Look out for Gardener’s Path on the Switch, too.
Speaking of the eShop, it looks like there are enough releases due to make a regular round-up viable, so check back later in the week for our final eShop round-up of 2021.
