Exploring the murky depths of the oceans are your main goal in ABZÛ. Take control of the lone diver as she meets some of the ocean’s most wonderful and scary-looking creatures. A peaceful affair which is a far cry from the typical antics of most video game explorers. *side eye to Nathan Drake*

Whoever said cooking was easy? The premise to Overcooked is a cute, chaotic multiplayer game where 1-4 players have to cook a meal. A seemingly simple one, until you throw in earthquakes and stray trucks. Local multiplayer has never looked so tasty.

In the second exploration game of the month, one of the most highly anticipated games of 2016 is finally due out this month after a couple of delays.
