4Gamers – Special | Four new ID@Xbox games

We recently had the opportunity to take a closer look at some of the games that are part of ID@Xbox. Four standalone games will also appear immediately on Xbox Game Pass and they are all very different from each other. Four games you should definitely keep an eye on.


Nighscape is a game developed by Mezan Studios that takes you to the Middle East at a time when navigating through the stars was still very important. However, all the stars disappeared from the sky and the night became darker than ever.

Fortunately, there's still Layla, who along with “The Goat Kid”, a kind of wise spirit who helps you, search for the stars to take her back to the sky. Every time you put an entire constellation back in its place, you also gain a power-up that you can use to solve puzzles. For example, she can summon strong winds or make it rain.

In terms of gameplay, Nightscape is a puzzle game that includes some action here and there, where you have to defeat enemies using a bow and arrow.

Botany Manor

Botany Manor from Balloon Studios is a puzzle game set in 1890 in Somerset, England. You'll play Arabella Green, a retired botanist who grows plants in her home to complete her book Forgotten Flora.

The goal of the game is to match different clues in order to grow the plant correctly. Botany Manor doesn't seem like the most difficult game, but it's a particularly relaxing one.

This is also reflected in the colorful graphics and soundtrack you hear in the background throughout. Anyone who wants to play Botany Manor can let their green fingers do the work starting April 9.

Jump ship

Jump Ship is a game by Keepsake Games, which is described as a cooperative mission-based spaceship adventure. You can play the game with up to four people and the goal is to travel from planet to planet to complete missions.

You can choose which task you will perform. You can choose to do a simple run for supplies, but you can also fight pirates, although there is of course the possibility that things could go wrong.

In terms of gameplay, Jump Ship isn't just about your ship. Of course you have to maintain and upgrade it, and over time you will also participate in battle with other ships, but on planets Jump Ship becomes a cooperative FPS.

It still awakens the depths

Still Wakes the Deep is being developed by The Chinese Room, which you already know from Dear Esther and Everybody's Gone to the Rapture. In Still Wakes the Deep they take us to an oil rig off the coast of Scotland in the 1970s. When you are attacked by a strange entity, you must do everything in your power to escape.

In the game you do not have any weapons or other tools to defeat monsters. So you will have to make your brain work to survive, and according to the makers, you will die more than once throughout the game. If that's not your thing, you can always choose the story mode, where you can survive more easily.

This time around, The Chinese Room is clearly opting for more horror than some of the more popular titles they've made previously and based on the images we've seen, they've really nailed it.
