Hunt the Night

DANGEN | Hunt the Night

Hunt the Night is a dark fantasy action-adventure game that combines fast, skilled gameplay with RPG elements in a 16-bit aesthetic. It was announced earlier this year for PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One with a new trailer during Guerilla Collective.

Rise of the Third Power

DANGEN | Rise of the Third Power

Rise of the Third Power is a love letter to the glory days of the console style RPG. Loosely based on the political climate of Europe in the late 1930’s, the story takes place in the land of Rin during the height of the Age of Sail and follows the events that would lead to the greatest war in human history.


DANGEN | Smelter

Released worldwide for PC, Nintendo Switch, PS4 and Xbox in April of this year, Smelter is an action-strategy hybrid reminiscent of Mega Man and Actraiser that combines explosive 2D side-scrolling action stages with Mode 7-inspired real time strategy.

Tactical Galactical

DANGEN | Tactical Galactical

To conquer the atrocious, brain-devouring creatures that dwell in the far reaches of outer space, players will need tactical prowess of galactical proportions! They can choose between three different commanders and battle for control of a planet in furious multiplayer battles, or follow the commanders in a wacky romp and carefully crafted single player mode! Each commander has their own unique card deck, with abilities that utilize the battlefields in different ways.
