New Xbox One game releases

With the festive season approaching, there’s a reasonably quiet week ahead for new Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One releases.

Our pick of the week is Lacuna, a sci-fi noir adventure from DigiTales Interactive that received acclaim on its PC release in May. A strong narrative, cool investigation gameplay and well-executed visuals make this the perfect thriller to play over the winter break.

When I was a kid – and I’m showing my age here – Horace Goes Skiing on ZX Spectrum was the pinnacle of gaming. Horatio Goes Snowboarding from Infinite State is unlikely to have the same impact, but it’s a fun slice of downhill arcade action.

Other new Xbox releases include In My Shadow and Vegas Tales. Should any other games turn up during the next week, we’ll update this page.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
