It's Wednesday once again, and if this trend on the App Store keeps up, we're really going to need to re-think what to call this weekly feature. In the past, games would pop up in New Zealand then slowly drizzle across the world as it got closer to Thursday in each geographical region's respective time zones leading up to games coming out in the USA at 11:00 PM Eastern. The last few weeks, more and more games have just been showing up as available worldwide at the same time they'd typically just show up in New Zealand. This is the case this week as well, with the vast majority of these games available for download right now.

Also, since there's always confusion surrounding this, these posts are curated from new games which have been posted to our forums this morning. If you don't see your game on here, make sure you've got a thread posted and we'll catch it in our full roundup at 11:00 PM Eastern when we scour the App Store for any stragglers that didn't follow the typical release pattern.

There aren't really any big name games in this list this week, but there's a ton of great indie stuff in here, which arguably makes them all a little more exciting because they're not being overshadowed by some massive highly anticipated release. Will this stave off "weak week" comments? Only the gods know for sure.

Anyway, here's the list:

As mentioned, stay tuned for our full roundup tonight, which usually goes live a little bit after 11:00 PM Eastern.

Update: Turns out we've got some late bloomers to the party that just sneaked out in New Zealand-

  • sabre31

    Another useless week. You would think all the blockbuster games would be out for the holiday weekend.

  • Caminagetcha

    Would be happy if the long siege and torchlight released today/tomorrow 😛 nothing for me except tactile wars that seems good 😛

  • sabre31

    Torchlight would be awesome but I suspect that will be iPad only.

  • E305

    So what's up with This War Of Mine? When is it coming out? Been waiting way too long for it and they said it's coming out in July!

    • djstout

      I am waiting for that one too but I guess it will be iPad only...

    • crazyb

      Was hoping that is was gonna come out tonight too. Hopefully next week. Looking forward to it since it was announced.

  • Quazonk

    I generally just come to these threads and scroll down to see if Maglor-Cat is at the top. If it is, I buy what he's touting. If not it's an auto-weak-weak.

    • Quazonk

      Or weak-WEEK. That too. Of course none of us ever know about these games we're insta-judging by saying that, but hey, internet.

    • nini

      I'll probably never be sold on his options, he's got a limited sense of what's good and it rarely aligns with mine.

  • BennyD

    The disappointment is real

  • noteatino

    Also Brain it on! It's a puzzle game with very cool physics mechanics.

  • Schpank

    Let's see... after eliminating the F2P titles (I won't even look at that shit), and the obvious drek, that leaves... Nothing! Great job everyone!

  • alduinslayer

    The executive:)

    • armilla

      Thanks for the reminder: the executive will not be weak.

      • ginkomanc

        The executive Is instabuy. That is all.

  • Billy Ocean

    Alchemic Dungeons? p-pwease??? :(((

    • Robbie1350

      It's already out in New Zealand so probably be out at 11 tonight or maybe sooner

      • Billy Ocean

        The herald of good tidings!

  • baldeagle86

    I can't wait any longer for Dungeons & Dragons defense!

  • Brett (@OTGGamer)

    A fun puzzle game called Divide by Sheep (by TinyBuild Games) is supposed to launch on both mobile and Steam tomorrow.

  • Daniel Wincelowicz

    Snuck out. It's "snuck out" not "sneaked out."

    • Jared Nelson

      Sneaked is the proper grammatical use, snuck is the widely accepted informal use. So they are both correct.

  • iosbuddha

    No Maglor No Get

  • gquiller

    When's Flappy Bird, the revenge coming out?

  • DonnyDJ76

    Groove Coaster Zero was just updated to Groove Coaster 2. Great rhythm game. The original Groove Coaster is still on the App Store as well.
