Fun Games I Played at W.A.S.D That You'll Love Too!

Updated: Apr 11, 2022

If you're like me, then you love finding new and exciting games to play. Recently, I had the chance to check out W.A.S.D, and I was really impressed by the selection of games on offer. If you're looking for something new to play, here are a few titles that caught my eye at W.A.S.D.

Game of the show

My game of the show pick is Two Point Campus. The successor to Two Point Hospital. This new upcoming university simulator game had a constantly filled booth of people trying and waiting to try the new title. I got to get hands-on, and the demo experience on show to try was spot on. I spent the whole time smiling and enjoying myself, walking away with such a sense of excitement.
