In Boundary, nobody can hear you dominate, but you still look good doing it

Boundary
Boundary is a multiplayer first-person shooter set in space. Not on an alien planet or inside a spaceship, but astronauts fighting in the cold vastness of space, floating above Earth in low orbit. The game is developed by Surgical Scalpels, and we got to play a few rounds of space warfare with them at...

Bake ‘n Switch left us hungry for more at Gamescom 2019

Bake 'n Switch
We here at GamersPack play a lot of Overcooked together. We love working as a team towards a common goal while we scream our lungs out at each other until someone cries. It's the best. That is why we jumped at the opportunity to play Bake 'n Switch at Gamescom. It's a four-player co-op...

Star Renegades combines a classic JRPG with Shadow of Mordor

star renegades combat
Star Renegades immediately stands out due to its impressive pixel art visuals. But after playing it at Gamescom 2019, I can tell you there are many more reasons to be excited about this roguelite RPG. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Fe0gqTU3Bg Star Renegades plays like a classic JRPG - you meet characters throughout a...

Mosaic can be depressing, but it doesn’t have to be

Mosaic
Mosaic is a game about the grinding, joyless routine of all work and no play. It is about isolation in a society that’s more comfortable staring at a screen than acknowledging the existence of another person. But it’s also a game about finding beauty in everyday moments, in music and the world around you....

Röki is a beautiful little tale inspired by Scandinavian folklore

Roki Gamescom 2019
Röki is one of the most impressive games I played at Gamescom 2019. From the very first seconds into its demo, it was already clear to me this game has something special, whether it's the art style, animations, or narrative design. https://youtu.be/WdvRkQtW03g Since I was chatting with the developers...

Sow by day and fight by night in nuclear farming game Atomicrops

Atomicrops
Atomicrops is probably one of the craziest, funniest games I got to play at Gamescom 2019. This game puts you in the role of a farmer searching for weird new seeds to sow on his farm and fighting hordes of monsters. While the demo I got to play at Gamescom was far from finished,...

Killsquad proves that friends who blow stuff up together, stay together

Killsquad
I knew Killsquad is my kind of game the second I saw it. I could tell just by how passionate its developers are that it's going to be one of the best experiences of Gamescom 2019. I wasn't wrong. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ERXWSRpXEJA Killsquad is an isometric co-op shooter by Catalan indie...

Classic survival horror Daymare 1998 started as a Resident Evil 2 remake

Daymare 1998
Daymare 1998 started as a Resident Evil 2 remake. No, not THAT Resident Evil 2 remake, but one that never saw the light of day. Developer Invader Studios wanted to see if they can create a classic survival horror game and thought recreating RE2 with modern features would be good exercise. When Capcom learned...

Welcome to Elk tells heartbreaking stories in the most whimsical way

Welcome to Elk, an island where everybody has a story to tell. All those stories are real, according to developer Triple Topping, which makes them even more fantastical. I got to play through one of these stories at Gamescom 2019, and experience the dissonance between the kids-friendly visual style and the dark subject matter.

Control Gamescom 2019 demo is an action-packed fever dream

Control
Control, Remedy Entertainment's newest title, all kinds of awesome. I learned that by playing through one area of the game called Old Boys' Club. At the beginning of the demo, I was dropped into a large hall inside the Oldest House, the headquarters of the Bureau of Control and the main setting for the...
