Daemonical
Daemonical is an asymmetric multiplayer horror game that's similar to titles like Friday The 13th: The Game and Dead by Daylight. The premise is simple: four human players run around the map and collect various body parts to try and complete a satanic ritual, while a fifth player attempts to hunt them down as a demon. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hLi2VIoHYqg Trust No One One small twist Daemonical...
Rage 2 combat
RAGE by id Software wasn't received well by both players and critics, so it was a big surprise when we learned a sequel was on the way. After playing through a short RAGE 2 demo, I can confidently tell you that there's a lot to look forward to. I played through the same Eden Assault mission Bethesda revealed back at...
Between the Stars space station
I've always dreamed about being the captain of a spaceship. The Mass Effect trilogy did well in making that dream a reality, but I have always felt it was missing genuinely epic space battles. Fortunately, Between the Stars, a new space epic by indie studio Isolated Games is offering just that. The game is now on Kickstarter along with a fully...
Stranger Things game
In the wake of Telltale Games' sudden closure, and the subsequent firing of 250 employees without severance pay (which is the real story here, really), a lot of strange footage from now ex-Telltale developers started popping up online. Some of this footage is from the canceled Stranger Things game the studio was working on. The first video shows Will walking down a...
Return of the Obra Dinn
Lucas Pope, best known for his amazingly gloomy bureaucracy simulator Papers, Please, has finally announced a release date for his next project - Return of the Obra Dinn. Well, maybe "release date" is a bit generous. It's more like a release window. According to a tweet by Pope, Return of the Obra Dinn should be finished "sometime this fall." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ILolesm8kFY In case you're...
Carly and the Reaperman
Carly and the Reaperman aspires to be more than your average VR game. It is a two-player game in which one player uses a standard controller to play as Carly, an innocent little girl stuck in the underworld, while the other player wears a VR headset to take the rule of the Reaperman - death itself. To beat the game,...
Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones monsters
One of the best things about gaming conventions is the games you discover there. You wander around the halls and booths and stumble upon hidden gems and exciting titles. One of the exciting games I discovered during Gamescom 2018 was Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones. It's a Lovecraftian RPG with tactical combat and oddly evocative illustrative visuals. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iHA9syy34Oc Stygian: Reign of the...
Decay of Logos enemies
Decay of Logos is a hidden gem of an indie game that feels like a cross between Dark Souls and Legend of Zelda - and it looks the part. What's more astonishing is that the team developing the game counts merely four designers. I had the unique opportunity to sit down with Ricardo Teixeira from Amplify Creations, one of the developers...
Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales
Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales, or Gwent: Thronebreaker as it was once called, has a final release date. The standalone, single-player expansion of the card game Gwent, will be released on PC via GOG on October 23. The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions will follow on December 4. In Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales we'll play as Meve, the warrior queen of Lyria and...
My Brother Rabbit
My Brother Rabbit is a unique adventure game with hand-painted graphics and personality for days, developed by indie studio Artifex Mundi. We play as a cute but cranky rabbit, the star of a story a little boy tells his sick sister to help her deal with her illness. The titular rabbit leaves his cozy, underground home to help his friend, a...
