February’s Stadia Pro lineup features an intergalactic adventure and a free trial of one of this week’s big new releases.
Madden NFL 21 comes to Stadia this week as a full-price release. But if you want to try before you, erm try, it’s also available for Stadia Pro subscribers to play for free from January 28 to February 1.
Also released before the end of the month are Tohu, the delicious-looking puzzle adventure game from Fireart Games, and Gods Will Fall, a new third-person actioner from Clever Beans.
A new crop of titles also join Stadia Pro next month. Top-billed is Journey to the Savage Planet from Typhoon Studios. It’s a vibrant and comical sci-fi adventure that evokes Metroid Prime and Far Cry, with a little No Man’s Sky thrown in for good measure. The team at Google were certainly impressed and acquired Typhoon soon after release to become a first-party studio.
Six games are also leaving Pro at the end of the month. Add them to your collection before they go, and they’ll remain available to play for the duration of your membership.

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.
