This week’s Content Drop will see a number of PC game releases, some of which may seem both unusual and intriguing. We’ve got Untitled Goose Game, Overland, Train Simulator 2020, and Groundhog Day: Like Father Like Son. We’ll also see Devil’s Hunt and Daymare: 1998. Oh, and Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Remastered also arrives on PCs.
For the other games that’ll be coming out this September 2019, check out the monthly PC game releases listing. As for the rest of the games launching this year and beyond, you can view our updated release dates list.
- Release Date: September 17
- Developer: Layopi Games
- Publisher: 1C Entertainment
- Store: Steam
Devil’s Hunt puts you in the role of Desmond. This unassuming protagonist is placed smack dab in the middle of the conflict between heaven and hell, angels and demons. Of course, the world is ripe for the taking whichever side wins.
Desmond has a number of skills for both his human and demonic form, a given due to Devil’s Hunt‘s focus on third-person combat and action. Devil’s Hunt also touts that you’ll be able to decide the victor in this apocalyptic war. The question is how this concept will be presented in the game itself. We’ll find out once it releases this week.
Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Remastered
- Release Date: September 20
- Developer: Level-5
- Publisher: Bandai Namco
- Store: Steam
In late 2010, a game called Ni no Kuni: Dominion of the Dark Djinn was released for the Nintendo DS but only in Japan. A year later, it was followed by an enhanced version which slightly altered some character names, locales, and even extended the ending. It was called Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch. It was made available for PlayStation 3 players in Japan back in 2011 and a wider release followed in 2013. Now, six years later, we’ll see a remastered version of what was, essentially, also a remake.
Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Remastered will be released for PCs this week. As far as we can tell, we’ll see only a handful of improvements such as full HD support and the game running at 60 FPS, along with slight improvements in graphical quality. We’ll see if the Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Remastered makes a grand introduction for PC players.
Untitled Goose Game
- Release Date: September 20
- Developer: House House
- Publisher: Panic
- Store: Epic
Untitled Goose Game is a fairly unusual game with a fairly unusual title, and, naturally, a fairly unusual premise as well. You play as a goose (well, duh), and you’re probably the most annoying living creature in the village. While citizens are getting on with their day, you’re out to make them more miserable by being a nuisance.
Whether it’s stealing their keys and radios, or dropping their clothes in water, it’s up to you as the horrible goose to see if the villagers can catch up. Untitled Goose Game combines sandbox, stealth, and general slapstick silliness, but we’ll see if it manages to keep people entertained once it releases this week for PCs.
