Google has continually increased the value proposition of its app and game subscription service and it’s only over these past few months that I’ve been more excited about it. Google Play Pass offers you over 500 apps and games in an ad-free experience for each entry. It even bundles in all of the respective in-app purchases at no extra cost for you and five other members of your Family Group for just $4.99 per month or $29.99 per year. New games are added every month and we’ll do our best to bring those to your attention right here on Chrome Unboxed. You can begin with a free trial and decide whether or not you want to keep it too, so there’s no harm in diving in for a bit!
The games we will cover today can be played on your Chromebook or Android device. Since Chromebooks can play games in portrait mode (popular with tablet-style devices) and landscape mode (the most common Chromebook configuration), we will cover both equally. For those of you hoping for more news regarding games that are truly optimized for Chromebooks, stay tuned – we will continue to refine our content approach with time. In the meantime, here are our top three picks! There are other great deals too, so be sure to let us know in the comments if you decide to grab anything. Happy gaming!

Through the Darkest of Times
Dark times mean fear and risks. The risk to be caught by patrolling National Socialists, looking for people who publicly stand against their point of view. The risk of being beaten up or even killed by the German military because we‘re opposing the regime. The risk of losing everything, including our loved ones. This is how we live. This is how we try to survive. Through the darkest of times.
Through the Darkest of Times is a historical resistance strategy game, focusing on conveying the somber mood of the period and the very real struggles of average people living in the 3rd Reich. Historical accuracy means that your small group of resistance fighters will not change the outcome of the war, nor will you prevent all of the Nazi’s atrocities, but you can certainly do everything in your power to save as many lives as you can and oppose the fascist system wherever possible.
Experience the Darkest of Times in 4 chapters
– Fight for freedom, weaken the regime and lead your resistance group
– Plan activities, find collaborators and try not to get caught
– Feel the weight of responsibility as you make difficult decisions and face the dire consequences
