With Great Power Comes Great Gaming: 4 New Games Arrive for SHIELD

by Mark Smith

We’re expanding our library of SHIELD games with four new titles today: Half-Life 2, Episode Two; Q.U.B.E: Director’s Cut; Never Alone; and Funk of Titans.

And more’s on the way.

Powered by our Tegra X1 processor, SHIELD Android TV delivers a great gaming experience. Already, there are more than 100 high-quality games available in our curated SHIELD Hub app and 200-plus games available on Google Play.

Let’s look at the latest.

Half-Life 2, Episode Two

Half-Life 2, Episode Two, is the second critically-acclaimed followup to Valve’s Half Life 2.

As Dr. Gordon Freeman, you were last seen exiting City 17 with Alyx Vance as the Citadel erupted amid a storm of unknown proportions. In Episode Two, you must battle Combine forces as you traverse the White Forest to deliver crucial information stolen from the Citadel to fellow resistance scientists.

Episode Two introduces new weapons, vehicles, and newly-spawned creatures.


Q.U.B.E: Director’s Cut

From Trendy Entertainment, Q.U.B.E: Director’s Cut is the definitive version of the brain-twisting first-person puzzler.

Using special high-tech gloves to manipulate cubes, the player solves an array of conundrums – from physics-based challenges to 3D jigsaws to platform-based trials.

Never Alone

The Iñupiat, an Alaska Native peoplecollaborated with Never Alone’s developers to create an atmospheric puzzle platform that draws from one of their traditional stories.

Guide characters in single-player mode or play with a friend as you trek through frozen tundra, leap across treacherous ice floes, swim through underwater caverns and face enemies both strange and familiar.

Never Alone is on over 75 “Best of 2014” lists, and winner of “Best Debut Game” at the 2015 BAFTA Games Awards as well as “Game of the Year” and “Most Significant Impact” at the 2015 Games for Change Awards. Nearly 40 Alaska Native elders, storytellers and community members contributed to the making of the game.

You’ll explore awe-inspiring environments, perform heroic deeds, and meet legendary characters from Iñupiaq stories — all narrated by a master storyteller in the Iñupiaq language.

Funk of Titans

Funk of Titans is a thrilling and addictive game. It’s simple to play but hard to master.

You control Perseus, the son of Zeus and protector of the legendary holy music known as the Funk.

Run through ancient Greek mythology, risk your life jumping over crazy platforms, collect funk vinyl, beat enemies, wear epic costumes, ride the Pegasus and smash the rap, the pop and the rock of the evil Musical Titans in fierce dance battles.

Only one music can survive. And the Funk is the music of the gods.
