All Game Reveals at the 2023 Humble Games Showcase
Wizard of Legend is Getting a Sequel

The upcoming game promises that classic feel alongside an upgrade to 3D visuals and a four-player co-op. Wizard of Legend 2 is still fairly early in development, though more details surrounding a release date and platforms can be expected in the future.

Bossa Studios, known for games like Surgeon Simulator and I Am Fish, is delving into a new genre with Lost Skies, a co-op open-world survival crafting game for up to six players. The title sees you and your friends build up a skyship as you explore floating islands filled with all sorts of ruins of a lost age. These ruins hold valuable treasures and even greater threats. Like Wizard of Legend 2, the game is also fairly early in development but already holds a ton of promise.

Breeze in the Clouds Sees an Adorable Corgi Fight Against Polluting Foes
If you told me we were going to get a game about a corgi fighting against hostile animals that want to pollute the world, I would’ve called you crazy. Yet here we are, and dang, is it ever cute. As Breeze, you’ll control the force of weather itself as you stop your enemies from bringing the world to ruin, all while working to save your best friend Diana. Breeze in the Clouds has no confirmed release window or platform, though follow the team at Stormy Nights Interactive for more information.

Were you a fan of either Moonlighter or The Mageseeker? Then you’ll be happy to hear that the team at Digital Sun is showing no sign of stopping, with their next game Cataclismo being one of their most ambitious yet. In Cataclismo, you’ll control your survivors as they fend off hordes of monsters while building up your fort and creating defenses toward the impending doom. All of this, while bringing a mostly ruined world back from the brink of extinction. No release window or platforms have been specified, but we’re excited nonetheless.
