If you missed Ace Combat 7, you might want to take a look at Project Wingman. This game, developed by Sector D2, puts you in the cockpit of a fighter jet to live out your dreams as a pilot. The game plans to include various missions, involving ground assaults as well as aerial dogfighting. No release window has been announced yet.

Flynn: Son of Crimson is an aggressive, 2D action-platformer that's all about whacking enemies and traversing landscapes. The Steam page promises a non-linear game design and interdimensional action. Developer Studio Thunderhorse plans to release the game sometime in 2020.

Popup Dungeon from Triple.B. Titles hearkens back to tabletop gaming. Reminiscent of popular tabletop RPGs like Dungeons & Dragons and Pathfinder, the game emulates a map atop a table. Dice roll, miniatures move around, and new rooms are summoned. It puts a twist on the old-school dungeon crawling model, and it's slated for some time in 2019.

Humble also reminded everyone that Forager would be coming to the Nintendo Switch along with the PlayStation 4 on July 30. The company had previously published the game on PC via Steam earlier this year. Additionally, Humble dropped an old trailer for Mineko's Night Market, a cutesy game about a girl who arrives on a mysterious Japanese island inhabited by cats. However, we now know the game will launch sometime in 2019.

In other news, Humble also revealed it would publish a sci-fi roguelite called Crying Suns at today's event, along with a tactical RPG called Fae Tactics.
