The game is an online and local party game of teamwork and betrayal for 4-10 players. Death’s Door is a fantasy action-adventure set in a world where Crows are in charge of reaping the souls of the dead, operating from their headquarters known as the Hall of Doors. 12 Minutes is coming soon to Xbox. The game revolves around a husband caught in a 12-minute time loop where he and his wife get caught up in a violent invasion as a man breaks into the home, accuses the wife of murder, and beats the husband to death. Astria Ascending is a turn-based JRPG set in a world where chaos looms. Players will take control of the Demigods – eight heroes charged with the fate of the world. Each character has their own story, explored across 5 cities, 25 dungeons, and up to 50 hours of gameplay.
