6. Coffee Talk Ep. 2: Hibiscus & Butterfly

Dust off your coffee machine and prepare your warmest smile to meet your customers again in the second episode of the much loved coffee brewing and heart-to-heart talking simulator; Coffee Talk Episode 2: Hibiscus & Butterfly. In a time where people are isolated from each other, Coffee Talk is a place where we can reconnect over a cup of warm drink. It’s time to revisit your favorite late-night coffee shop and reconnect with your fantasy friends over a warm drink or two. You are a barista, and your customers aren't always humans, listen to their stories and influence their hearts with a warm cup of coffee or two.

Jazzy chords, hip-hop beats, (a bit) vinyl crackles, chilled mind and heart, and a prayer. That's what I continue to have in crafting relaxing lofi music for Coffee Talk Episode 2. I hope people won't stop loving them, because I love making music that people really love to hear , especially when they need to just relax for a while before heading back to the challenges in life. - Andrew Jeremy (Composer)

4. Astrea: Six​-​Sided Oracles

 An all new dice-deck-building roguelike, Astrea, has you chart a path through the ruins of a lost civilization as one of six brave Oracles. Using an ever-changing deck of dice and enchanted Sentinels, Purify waves of Corrupted foes and a decayed goddess to save the Star System.

Long ago – when ancient ruins were once flourishing civilizations and their populace lived in idyllic bliss – a mystical star governed all. Loyal disciples, called Six-Sided Oracles, were blessed by their star, granting them the strength to seal away the gift of heavenly bodies within mystic relics.

All was perfect and harmonious. Until that one fateful day – The Crimson Dawn Cataclysm. A ferocious inferno sundered down from the sky, engulfing the entirety of the star system, crumbling the foundations of their society and corrupting the souls of the weak-willed. The disciples of the star were lost to the chaos – their creations scattered across a vast world of ruin. Could there still exist those who were capable of wielding their power?

Eons later, brave young scions awoke to a mysterious call beckoning them to the ruins of the ancient disaster. It is there they find the lost six-faced relics of legend and writings detailing the original Six-Sided Oracles, a vengeful deity, and a Corruption Plague. The new Six-Sided Oracles embark on a journey to save their star system and search for the secrets of their destructive history.

1.  House Flipper 2

Dust off your hammer – “House Flipper” is back in a brand-new fashion! Buy and renovate run-down houses! Or maybe you want to build new ones? Now you can! Start as a rookie Flipper and make a fortune by helping out the community of the charming town of Pinnacove.

It’s time get excited! After selling four million copies of part one on Steam alone, “House Flipper 2” has made it into the top 20 of the most-wishlisted games on the platform. But there is another reason for excitement: In time for the game release in December, Black Screen Records, in cooperation with Frozen District, are stoked to announce the vinyl release for the original soundtrack. The LP comes with a special artwork concept following the spirit of “House Flipper 2”, featuring a die-cut sleeve with inside print and printed inner-sleeves, so you can see the old house on the cover but a preview of the renovated house through the cut-out.

The soundtrack was created by three composers who make “House Flipper 2” to an overall wholesome experience, while the songs work for themselves without the game as well. Here’s what the artists say about their inspirations and musical ideas for the soundtrack:

“Every note is made for your joyful moments.” - WeiFan Chang

“I wanted the music to take the listener on a ride of calm and exciting emotions, so it was really fun exploring the different themes at my disposal.” - Richard Williams

“My music reflects the unrestrained optimism of the '90s, weaving smooth jazz tunes reminiscent of the era's belief in self and the art of crafting one's world.” - Leszek Karczewski
