Apple Arcade Adds Four Surprises, Including Games from Chuchel and Neko Atsume Devs

The Arcade keeps getting neat indie surprises.

Apple's subscription gaming service tacked four more games onto the roster this weekend, and there were some pleasant surprises among the bunch. New games coming to the Arcade include new games from Machinarium and Chuchel developer Amanita Design and Neko Astume developer Hit-Point.

Pilgrims is Amanita's new card-based adventure game. It has a pleasant look and charm to it. Traveling the lands of Pilgrims lets you pick up travelers and complete small stories. Amanita bills the game as having various solutions for each task, allowing you to play without following a path. Pilgrims is also out on PC, Mac, and Linux via Steam and, as well as directly from the developer.

Hit-Point, developer of the mobile cat collecting game Neko Atsume, also put out a game for Apple Arcade called Nightmare Farm. It looks like a cute game about creepy things, as the App Store description details: "Let's get along with the characters visiting the farm by preparing food for them and give them toys while growing crops in the field." It seems eerily reminiscent to the upcoming Spiritfarer, in that it's a management-style game about cute spirits and monsters.

Redout: Space Assault provides a more arcade-style experience for the Apple Arcade, while The Bradwell Conspiracy rounds out the list of new games coming to the subscription service. The Bradwell Conspiracy is the new game from Surgeon Simulator developer Bossa Studios, and it looks to put a Portal-esque spin on 3D printing and photography in a first-person narrative puzzle experience. It's also coming to PlayStation 4, PC, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One later this week.

Apple Arcade has been a surprisingly solid service, launching last month with a lineup of new and interesting mobile games that can be played across the various Apple devices, including on a big screen with Apple TV. As subscription services become more and more plentiful, it'll be interesting to see which titans keep getting notable launches like these.
