This Week’s Most Exciting Video Game Releases

May the 9th be with you.

Things are a little quieter on the video game release front again this week, which will hopefully give everyone a chance to catch up on their backlogs, but that’s not to say there’s nothing coming out that shouldn’t be on your radar. It’s a good week for smaller releases, even if the vast majority of them all drop on the same day, so whether you’re looking for adorable feline adventures, creepy PS1-era survival horror homages or something that’s a mix of 90s PC dungeon crawlers and Wordle, you’re in for a treat or two.

Take a look at some of the more exciting stuff coming this week:
