Little Inferno (Tomorrow Corporation) - €9.99/£8.99
Little Inferno is an unusual game filled with surprise and wonder, and even better the less you know about it before playing! Congratulations on your new Little Inferno Entertainment Fireplace! Throw your toys into your fire, and play with them as they burn. Stay warm in there. It's getting cold outside! Burn flaming logs, screaming robots, credit cards, batteries, exploding fish, unstable nuclear devices, and tiny galaxies. An adventure that takes place almost entirely in front of a fireplace - about looking up up up out of the chimney, and the cold world just on the other side of the wall.

If you succeed, you'll be promoted up to the next level for another year of work in the vast office building. Congratulations! Don't worry if you've never programmed before - programming is just puzzle solving. If you strip away all the 1's and 0's and scary squiggly brackets, programming is actually really simple, logical, beautiful, and something that anyone can understand and have fun with! Are you already an expert? There will be extra challenges for you.

This comes from the European press release for Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadow of Valentia...

''In addition, amiibo (sold separately) of Marth, Roy, Ike, Robin, Lucina, and even the upcoming Corrin amiibo can be used to summon an Illusory Hero of that character, allowing players to seek assistance from spectral visages.''

It is good to see that the Corrin amiibo is still coming. Give us a solid date, Nintendo!

Six Sides of the World hits Wii U in Europe today

WHEN PORTAL MEETS MARIO GALAXY

Six Sides of the World is full of references awaiting for true gamers that can appreciate them. The game has been created by a true geek, so you can expect to find constant allusions to pieces of pop culture. The most evident inspirations are Portal and its way of introducing new and exciting sci-fi concepts as key elements to solve puzzles and Mario Galaxy and his particular navigation through tiny planets. As said before: you will clearly see that Six Sides of the World has been created by someone who truly loves videogames.

EXPLORE A VAST GALACTIC SYSTEM

Six Sides of the World presents you a series of galaxies to be explored. Each one is comprised by different puzzles that introduce new and more challenging mechanics. But most interesting feature of this is that these galaxies can be navigated linearly, following a easier predetermined path; or you can make a detour if you are brave enough. Some of the puzzles will present more than one possible solution, enabling the player to achieve a more difficult victory, that will unlock new extra puzzles.

WORSHIP THE PUZZLE GOD

Maigo is an explorer who’s about to discover something far bigger than he expects. As he navigates through space, facing increasingly difficult puzzles, he starts to understand he’s tapping over something transcendent. Some questions arise: who has created all these worlds? What motivates this intergalactic architect? There’s an utter plan beyond all this? It is a test? A mean to protect something? In seek of the truth Maigo will have to overcome all the challenges to meet this kind of… PUZZLE GOD.
