The return of Turok and reverse horror game Carrion are the highlights from this week’s lineup of new Xbox One releases.

We’ve been keeping an eye on Carrion‘s since we first saw the game at the 2018 PC Gaming Show. But, perhaps, Carrion has been keeping an eye on us. This clever reverse horror from Phobia Game Studio casts players as a tentacled creature that must stalk and kill its captors to escape from a mysterious facility. Static images of the game’s pixel-art visuals belie the fact that it looks horribly good in motion. It’s sublimely animated, visceral, and violent. We can’t wait.

If your only memory of the Turok franchise is from its Nintendo 64 heyday, you’re in for a surprise. Turok: Escape from Lost Valley is a bright and breezy isometric action-adventure with a cute, hand-drawn art style. It received a mixed reception on PC last year, but we can see it being more enjoyable played from the couch on the big screen.

Finally, Creaks is the long-awaited new puzzle adventure from Amanita Design, creators of the legendary Machinarium and Samorost. The game is best left unspoiled, but we’re pleased to see the studio’s visual flair is undimmed.

Other new games include Rainswept, Tannenberg, and Rock of Ages 3: Make and Break. Each new release can be purchased from the Xbox One digital games store or the Microsoft online store.

We hate to ask, but...

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. 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 to meet those goals! 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.
