Best Playism Games of 2018 – Voted by You!

2018 has ended and 2019 has already begun with quite a blast.

In January, we ran a poll on our blog for everyone to vote for their favourite Playism-released game of 2018! We had some fantastic results, and it is now time to reveal the winners!

To start with, let’s look at our honorable mentions!


Yume Nikki (Steam)

You are free to explore the various dream worlds at your own pace.
If you check certain characters or items in the game you will collect an “Effect”. These “Effects” can be used to change the main character’s appearance.

Yume Nikki is a very unique title that has become one of the most well-known indie games to come out of Japan.

It is unlike any other RPG, especially in the fact that there really is no action or dialogue to speak of. This gives the game a very dark and foreboding atmosphere. Can you make it to the secret ending?

Immerse yourself in the pleasure of using explosions to clear the screen of intrusive objects as they pile up.

“Help me get outta here, and I’ll kill you.”

“Angels of Death” follows the psycho horror story of Ray and Zack as they attempt to escape the world they are in.
Where are they? What is going on? Without knowing the answer to so many questions, they have no choice to trust each other and push forwards for their own personal goals.
