All of these games offer interesting takes on their respective genres, offering a little bit of something for everyone. Bad North combines real-time tactics and roguelite strategy as players defend against Viking invaders. Morphies Law is a team-based shooter where your size affects your abilities, but bigger isn’t always better! And in Prison Architect, you have to overcome the challenges of constructing and managing a maximum-security prison – not the typical focus of a simulation game.
