This week saw a few titles that will surely get plenty of time in the sun (and downloads), as well as a number of hidden gems that will likely slide under the radar. Some of the games released this week include a platformer starring an eyeball, a craft beer brewing sim, a gacha game with great graphics and a fantastic soundtrack, and a puzzle game that has players clean floors.
