SwissGames (@SwissGames) an initiative by the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia, will be at gamescom in Cologne to showcase 22 Swiss studios and their latest games. The line-up features a diverse mix of 2D and 3D games, from hand-drawn artistic single-player experiences to brightly coloured multiplayer titles.

Some highlights of the games presented this year are the action rogue-lite Munch by Mac n Cheese Games, the whimsical spooky-noir game Tom the postgirl by Oopsie Daisies, the party racing game Ultimate Godspeed by Ninoko and the charming third-person RPG Wéko the Mask Gatherer.

Munch is an action rogue-lite set in a dark fantasy world. Players defeat enemies and then eat them in the spirit of the game's title. This allows them to take on new forms and learn new abilities. That way, they keep evolving based on what they eat - true to the motto "You are what you eat".

Tom the postgirl is a hand-drawn 2D adventure game with a healthy dose of dark humor and (questionable) decisions. Players follow Tom, a girl who is not very good at her actual job of delivering packages. But Tom is all the better at stalking the villagers. In the game, players make decisions that have dramatic consequences.

Ultimate Godspeed is a party racing game that players can play on their own, with or against their friends. To win, players either build shortcuts with ramps or platforms, or try to eliminate the competition with well-placed traps. They just have to be careful not to end up in these traps themselves!

Wéko the Mask Gatherer is an action-adventure about the gecko Wéko, who collects masks in an atmospheric world and uncovers dark secrets in the process. The charmingly designed world invites exploration and gradually opens up to players. The challenging gameplay includes battles, the use of the masks collected by Wéko, and the abilities they grant him.
