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...
Darksiders 3 Envy
Darksiders, one of my all-time favorite action-adventure series, is back after a pretty long hiatus. Fans have been waiting for a long time to play as the two remaining Horsemen of the Apocalypse: Fury and Strife. We'll get to play as Fury in the upcoming Darksiders 3. I got my hands on a Darksiders demo at Gamescom 2018, and now have a good...
Harold Halibut hand-crafted environments
I love classic adventure games, stop-motion movies, and stop-motion classic adventure games such as The Neverhood. So I was excited to learn about Harold Halibut - an upcoming narrative adventure about a janitor in an underwater space station. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nbejfDVg73c The Everyday Life of an Underwater Space Janitor The whole "underwater space station" might be a bit confusing, so let me explain: Harold...
Lego DC Super-Villains
I love the Tt Games Lego series since I've played the original Lego Star Wars, and as a geek, I always enjoy exploring the various fandoms in the cute co-op action-adventure series. It's no surprise that I was happy to get my hands on a playable demo of Lego DC Super-Villains. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GVgg1W-SWCg For a very long time, the Lego games had you...
Team Sonic Racing Gamescom demo
Team Sonic Racing is the next entry in the Sonic racing game series and successor to the critically acclaimed Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. The game has been teased back in SXSW 2018 and received a reveal trailer at E3 2018. At Gamescom 2018, I got the opportunity to sit down with Derek Littlewood from Sumo Digital and play the Team Sonic...
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 multiplayer
As you may have heard, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 won't have a single-player mode, so that developer Treyarch can focus solely on the multiplayer - including the new Battle Royale mode Blackout. We recently had a chance to try a few of the game's multiplayer modes: Hardpoint and Heist. Unfortunately, we didn't get our hands on Blackout, though we did...
