New Game Releases for the Week of 7/3: Secrets and Line Music

This week, a new MMO is unleashed upon the world while Square Enix reminds you what you loved about all of those Final Fantasy games: the music! Plus, a new quirky platformer emerges with Mossmouth’s Spelunky. Does it have what it takes to be the next Super Meat Boy?

Highlights from this week’s new releases after the jump.

The big pitch for Funcom’s urban fantasy MMO The Secret World is that you’re not constrained by levels of classes, and character progression is entirely up to the player who can choose their powers, weapons, and clothing. That’s an interesting, albeit possibly counter-intuitive hook for an MMO: “it’s not all about compulsive progression,” the developer seems to be saying.

If it’s not about that, then what is it about?

The Secret World’s setting involves every clandestine conspiracy and urban legend being true. It’s an M-rated title, so expect things to get a little bloody, courtesy of a story from The Longest Journey creator Ragnar Tørnquist.
