OnLive adds four games to the PlayPack

Today OnLive added 4 new titles to its subscription based PlayPack service, bringing the $9.99/mo. offering to a whopping 84 games. Each of the titles also comes from separate developer studios, showing that OnLive’s offerings are expanding to accommodate gamers from every genre. The games included with today’s release are Trapped Dead, Blowout, Faery: Legends of Avalon, and Planet Horse.

The first, Trapped Dead, is put out by Crenetic Studios and is a Diablo-style third person zombie thriller. The art style for this game is actually what caught my attention first. To describe the game mechanics as you play, a screen will slide in which looks like a comic book. Truth be told it looks like a pretty cool offering that will let you waste a good few hours smashing the undead.

Trapped Dead is a tactical rts game. Players control their characters in a 3rd person isometric view through a mature Zombie survival scenario inspired by Horror movies of the early 80s. The game is single player only and supports only mouse and keyboard.

Next up is Blowout. This is put up by Terminal Reality and is a cool looking side-scroller game reminiscent of the Metroid series. It has 2D style gameplay with 3D graphics that aren’t beautiful but they get the job done.

The game is single player only and supports mouse and keyboard as well as gamepads.

Faery: Legends of Avalon. What can I say? It’s like Borderlands meets faeries. Maybe on pot? I’m not sure. But check it out. If it doesn’t creep you out it might be worth a look. This one’s put out by Spider studios.

Finally we have Planet Horse. Planet Horse? Yes, I know what you’re probably thinking. Trash game and another waste of a Tuesday, right? Well if you’re a hardcore gamer it probably isn’t right for you. But that’s also one of the great things about OnLive: They can cater to hardcore gamers and to the casual crowd.
