Fresh picks: New games released April 5

Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment

Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment is the big release today. Its the prequel to the widely-popular Shovel Knight that has already become one of the biggest indie games ever developed.

You play as Specter Knight in the prequel. Armed with a scythe and  preternatural agility, you’ll set out to recruit a cadre of knights and create the Order of No Quarter in this platforming adventure. Developed and published by Yacht Club Games, Specter of Torment is available on Steam for $9.99.


Paradigm is an obsucre point-and-click adventure set in a post apocalyptic Eastern European country of Krusz. The retro futuristic setting is an ode to the 1970s and 80s, while the game itself is inspired by classics like Monkey Island. It’s on Steam for $14.99.

One Hit KO

One Hit KO is a two-button fighter that will test your speed and reflexes. Push left to hit left, push right to hit right. Simple, right? Three Frog Studios made the game, which is on Steam for $6.99.

Fresh picks are (somewhat) daily previews of newly released games.
