Wuppo, one of the most charming games I have ever played, has a brand new free update available now. Boss Run mode lets you face off against the bosses of the game, one after the other. It also comes with a scoring system and online leaderboards (Steam only) so you can compete to see who is the TOP WUM IN THE WORLD!!! Your score is determined by how fast you can complete the boss run and how many hits you take. Another mode included with the update is Practice Mode, and yep, it’s exactly what it sounds like. Practice Mode lets you play against any boss in the game so you can work on your strategy against any specific one that is giving you trouble.
And if for some crazy reason you haven’t played Wuppo yet, it’s on sale right now on Steam to celebrate the new update. http://store.steampowered.com/app/400630/

A new game set to release on PC in Q1 2017, Lemuria: Lost in Space is a point and click adventure game with a twist. Set in the distant future, the story centers around the mysterious re-appearance of the spaceship Lemuria 7. Gone missing 40 years ago, it has now returned to the solar system heavily damaged. Taking on the role of Abrix, a robot with an AI made for operating in high temperature, highly radiated environments, your mission is to explore the Lemuria 7 and find out what happened to the ship and crew.
Now as for the twist, Lemuria is not a simple point and click adventure, however. It is being billed as a hybrid FPS/Point and Click/Survival RPG. Abrix will explore the Lemuria in a first person view, solving puzzles and engaging in combat with hostiles that roam the halls, all while managing the precious resources that keep you alive. Abrix will also be able to upgrade his systems, but right now information is a little scarce, so I’m not sure how that will work. All in all, it sounds like a very interesting title, especially for lovers of all things Sci-Fi. You can view the reveal trailer here, along with some screenshots. http://store.steampowered.com/app/563250/
