The other standouts in the new entries to The Vault are Zachtronics’ SHENZHEN I/O, a puzzle game about building circuits, The Book of Unwritten Tales 1 and 2, which are brilliant point-and-click fantasy adventures, and Samorost 3, a surreal puzzler from Amanita Design, creator of Chuchel and Machinarium.
Cute indie puzzle-platformer Wuppo might also be worth a look: it came top of an algorithm-picked list of best-rated, least-played games on Steam.
The full list of games added to The Vault this week are:
- Base-building space strategy RPG Halcyon 6
- Crawl, an indie brawler
- Puzzle-platformer Seasons After Fall
- SHENZHEN I/O
- Samorost 3
- The Book of Unwritten Tales 1
- The Book of Unwritten Tales 2
- Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun
They’ll all be available to anyone that’s paid the monthly $5/£4 or annual $30/£20 price of entry for Origin Access, which gets you free games, “play first trials” of new games and a 10% discount on the Origin store.
Of course, they’re also available for subscribers to Origin Access Premier, which launched over the summer. You pay $15/£15 a month or $100/£90 a year for all the perks of the basic subscription, plus unlimited and early access to major new releases, including Battlefield 5 and Anthem.
