November is wrapping up, but Thanksgiving is still to come in the States. Nintendo Switch owners can be extra grateful this week, as the handheld console is getting ports of the infamous Five Nights at Freddy’s series, Zelda-like adventure Decay of Logos, and survival game Pine. PS4 and Xbox One gamers can get their hands on The Escapists Double Pack, which includes The Escapists 1 and 2. Indie darling Where The Water Tastes Like Wine is also getting console ports this week. Sorry, PC gamers–things will pick up for you in December!
Pine — November 26
Pine is a survival game set in a world where humans are not at the top of the food chain. To protect your tribe, you’ll have to craft weapons, trade goods, and befriend or betray other animal races as you journey to safety. Your actions have an effect on the world’s ecology too.
The Escapists Double Pack — November 26

The second game lets you do all that with friends in co-op, too. It also goes beyond earthly prisons, asking you to escape your cell in crazy locations like a moving desert train, a snowy mountain, and even outer space.
