SKT’s game lineup includes ANVIL, Little Witch in the Woods, VAPOR World, and NEOVERSE.

NEOVERSE: Created by Tinogames, NEORVERSE is a time warping multiverse game consisting of thrilling adventures that are packed with great and exciting challenges; combining roguelite, deck building and strategy gameplay all in one.
Among the above four games, NEOVERSE became the first to be released as an Xbox game and 5GX Cloud Game in December 2020. The other three games will also launch on Xbox and 5GX Cloud Game gradually within this year. During the E3 Expo, visitors will be able to play the demo version of ANVIL and provide feedback to increase the level of completion of the game.
