Announced Tuesday, the streaming service’s upcoming lineup includes Oxenfree II: Lost Signals,(opens in a new tab) releasing on consoles, PC, and now Netflix on July 12.

There’s also Newfangled Games’ top-down puzzle game Paper Trail(opens in a new tab), Game Loft’s role-playing and battle game LEGO Legacy: Heroes Unboxed(opens in a new tab), and a more regular Cut the Rope Daily game on the way.
