Anything new has the potential to be different and thus interesting, so I always try to keep alert to free to play titles that are in development or at least not yet released in this part of the world. Of course, it has gotten much harder to remain decently informed over the years since the number of projects has grown immensely over the past decade or so, and also because most of the studios are located halfway around the world.
It's only natural that my interest is higher for some upcoming titles than the rest, and also that the list changes on an evolving basis. So, here are some thoughts on two that have been able to attract larger than average shares of my interest at this time.

Even if I were prone to do that, which I'm not since I believe people should make their own informed choices, I couldn't because I have yet to play either for even a single minute. Given I've never been big on numerical rankings, they're just in alphabetical order. And there are definitely others I could talk about too. Maybe in future columns.
