There’s a fun selection of new titles on the Xbox Games Store this week as you can see below. The lineup is mostly smaller titles, which is perfectly fine since those need some attention too of course.
Highlights include Vesta, The Aquatic Adventure of the Last Human, InnerSpace, Kerbal Space Program Enhanced Edition, The Vanishing Of Ethan Carter and the Metal Gear Survive beta too.
There’s also this week’s Deals With Gold And Spotlight Sale. And as always, see all the latest and greatest releases here on the Xbox Games Store.
The Aquatic Adventure of the Last Human
As resources began to dwindle in the year 2971, sub-aquatic spaceships were sent to a nearby wormhole to look for habitable planets. Things did not go as planned. And now the ship Argo9 has returned, thousands of years later. Witness the beauty of the sea as well as humanity?s influence on nature, told through the art and backgrounds with some textual hints along the way.
The Vanishing Of Ethan Carter
The Vanishing of Ethan Carter is a first-person story-driven mystery game focused on exploration and discovery. You play the game as Paul Prospero, an occult-minded detective who receives a disturbing letter from Ethan Carter. Realizing the boy is in grave danger, Paul arrives at Ethan?s home of Red Creek Valley, where things turn out to be even worse than he imagined. Ethan has vanished in the wake of a brutal murder, which Paul quickly discerns might not be the only local murder worth looking into.
Vesta is a witty 6-year-old girl who lives in a desolate underground maze ? the ruins of a once-bright city inhabited by humans and perfect machines. Although this world can be lonely, she is kept company by her friend BOT. It advises her and encourages her to do the tasks she is assigned, although it knows much more than it lets on. In order to survive in this passive yet hostile environment, BOT will give Vesta a real helper ? DROID.

Besides, he is the perfect weapon to defend against the dangers lurking in the remains of this abandoned complex.
