This game is technically in early access, but it's still a great game for anyone who likes a challenge. It takes place on Earth in 1976, or rather in one of the Earth's deep seas. Players are tasked with managing a cloning facility on the ocean floor, but it is no easy feat given the many dangers and challenges this underwater station faces. 

You have limited power, oxygen, and food — all of which you need to keep your employees alive. To grow your station, you'll need to mine materials, construct new areas, and fight off terrors that hide in the darkness. It's a challenging survival game mixed with city builder mechanics that will take skill to master.

Hi-Fi Rush (Jan. 25, 2023)

A boy named Chai elected to have surgery for a robot arm, but came out of it with his music player embedded in his chest as well. Now the evil corporation that did the surgery is out to get him, calling him a defect. But thanks to his surgical implants, he's now in tune with the rhythm of the world's soundtrack and must smash up baddies to the beat in this rhythm-action game. 

This game shadow-dropped shortly after the Xbox Developer_Direct in January and has proven to be an instant hit. Part of Hi-Fi Rush's success is due to the fact that you don't necessarily have to be good at rhythm games to play it. Chai always hits to the beat even if you're off with the button press, but you'll get better combos and better music if you do keep time with everything. It's available on Game Pass.
