Giraffe and Annika is a title from indie Japanese developer Atelier Mimina making its console debut after a PC launch earlier this year. As an adventure title, it’s not particularly deep, but the wholesome charm it exudes makes it a very pleasant experience.

RPGamer has been able to work through the prologue to Vanillaware’s 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim. It absolutely feels like a game worthy of further attention when it launches in September.

RPGamer was given the chance to check out Blightbound on Steam Early Access. It’s way too early to draw any real conclusions about the game, but it should offer some enjoyable action to those looking to hack through enemies with a couple of friends.
