Puzzle game Human Resource Machine lets players program their own corporate drones

In 1961 a musical called How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying made light of the growing corporate culture in America. Half a century later, those same corporations are seen by many as a necessary evil, a soulless machine that runs on the lives of its employees. It's appropriate, then, that Human Resource Machine is more or less the opposite of How To Succeed in Business: instead of starting in the mailroom and becoming the CEO in a fun-filled week of singing and dancing, you play a literal human machine whose behavior is programmed like a computer, and who spends decades in service to a company that has nothing but contempt for you.

Beautiful 2D puzzler Pavilion makes its way to the SHIELD TV for $10

There are a lot of PC and console games that have made their way to NVIDIA's SHIELD set-top box, but I believe that Pavilion is the first to get an exclusive launch on the platform before making its way elsewhere. The 2D puzzle-adventure game from Visiontrick, which mixes elements of old point-and-click adventure games with more modern fare like Monument Valley, is now on the Play Store for ten bucks. It'll make its way to the PS4, Vita, Steam, and Humble stores later this month.

Maestria, A Beautiful Puzzle Game, Is Now Free On The Play Store

I love puzzle games. The more I have to use my brain to solve a riddle, the prettier the graphics, and the simpler the story, the better. I can then lose a few minutes trying my hand at a new level or simply get completely drowned for hours on end, going through levels like my life depended on it.

Maestria tickles that side of my gaming addiction. It is exactly the kind of game I should stay away from if I want to be productive at all for the rest of the day. It is eerily similar to Monument Valley in its isometric graphics and pastel color scheme, but the puzzle mechanic is different.

Nathan Drake Makes A Mobile Debut With The Free-To-Play Uncharted: Fortune Hunter

Uncharted is one of the signature franchises on the PlayStation, and it's about to extend to the PS4 with its (allegedly) final entry, Uncharted 4. Surprisingly it hasn't come to Android or any other mobile platform until now. Uncharted: Fortune Hunter eschews the third-person shooting and Hollywood set pieces of the main series in favor of some rather basic puzzles, in the same vein as Hamilton's Great Adventure. It's free in the Play Store.
