Tormentum - Dark Point 'n Click game [Greenlight] [Indiegogo] - Please, Support us!

Tue, 06/17/2014 - 06:41
Hello,

We are OhNoo Studio from Poland, we created a campaign on IndieGoGo and Greenlight for our first game - Tormentum.

Indiegogo - CLICK!
Greenlight CLICK!

More screens: Tormentum website

Tormentum is a surreal adventure game, featuring moral choices.

The action of the game is set in a dark world, veering between dreams and nightmare. The main protagonist, that the player takes control over, doesn't remember his name nor the place where he came from. Visiting new lands, he slowly starts to uncover the truth about himself.

The dreamlike atmosphere featured in the game was inspired by the works of a Polish painter, Zdzislaw Beksinski, and a recently deceased Swiss painter, H.R.Giger, among others.




Unfortunately, bigger problems seem to arise. The flying ship lands in a big castle and the main hero is soon imprisoned in it. This is how this surreal story from the border of dream and reality begins...



Traversing different areas the hero learns the dark world in which he was imprisoned. Visiting new lands, he slowly starts to uncover the truth about himself.






Please, Support us!

New Alien: Isolation trailer released

GTA V Announced for PC and PS4

Tue, 06/10/2014 - 00:20
I am surprised. I really thought Rockstar was going to shaft the PC community again (i.e, no Red Redemption).



GTA IV is a strange beast for me. I hate the vulgarity, the acidic satire, and the glorification of the violent underworld, but the game is a remarkable achievement in how it simulates an entire city. That alone keeps me playing.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare

Mon, 06/09/2014 - 21:50
I find it hard to get excited about this for two reasons: 1) Call of Duty: Ghosts was a terrible game (on the PC anyway) that couldn't even get me to buy it when it was F2P and on sale for half off, and 2) CoD is now getting too far into the Star Wars realm of science fiction. I liked the "near future" take of Black Ops 2 - just enough future tech to keep things interesting (albeit, the subsequent map packs were ludicrous - a skateboard park, Treyarch?!? :nuts: )- but once a game includes hoverbikes I lose interest quickly. :rolleyes:

Anyhoo, here is the gameplay:



Apparently, realistic faces are now required in every game. Yeah, that is going to get me to upgrade my video card....

I hope this is a return to the quality seen in Modern Warfare 3 (for all the hate, I thought that was a fantastic game), but not holding my breath on this one, either.

PS: Want to make a bet that Battlefield 5 is going to be science fiction, too? :whist:

Rainbow Six Siege from E3

Mon, 06/09/2014 - 21:05
Ironic seeing how our own Kawaiku and I have been discussing how games are becoming too serious and gritty. Apparently, the big studios have worn out war, so now they are switching to crime. Of course, I suspect it is the 2.6 million monthly players of CSGO that is also prompting this response. Whatever the cause, apparently hostage-taking is the "hot, new thang" in gaming.... :rolleyes:



This MP is far too co-op for my liking. I hope we can play with bots because I just hate online games that take close co-operation with strangers. Also, I wonder if this title is still going smear the Tea Party with its plot about right wing, liberty-loving extremists? :rolleyes:

Not holding my breath on this one even if Ubisoft has been on quite the roll lately.

EDIT: I will say that the most important thing about this vid is being missed: this is the first title that I have seen that can compete (beat?) DICE's destructive environments! Very impressive! Battlefield might have to watch their backs. Oh wait...they already are:

Battlefield 3 for Free

Wed, 05/28/2014 - 19:34
Until June 3, Battlefield 3 is free on Origin!

https://www.origin.com/en-us/store/f...=1401312863412

This is a really good deal!

I think EA would be smart to give away BF4 for a week or so. If the game has really improved as DICE claims, this would be the best way to openly demonstrate that fact. And they would still make money off of the DLC.

Best free PC games ever

Mon, 05/19/2014 - 13:36
http://www.vg247.com/2014/05/19/best-free-pc-games/ Here's someone's opinion on the best free pc games. Some I've played and some I've never heard of. #15. War Thunder, played it and am going to revisit as tanks are now active. Like it. #14. World of Tanks- played it, prolly won't go back. #11. Star trek online, liked it; bias as to it should be higher but that might be my Sci-fi interest. #10-Age of Conan, as a Conan book reader way back I wanted to like this game but bailed after a week or so. #9.Hawken- Just started playing this and am liking it so far; time will tell. (and my wallet if I pop for credits) #8. Star Wars: The Old Republic, Good spot; like it. #5. Team Fortress 2-lot of time in this game, still play occasionally. #2. Lord of the rings online, I dunno; played it but didn't really grab me like other games. I wouldn't have it this high. And #1. Path of Exile. Never played it, what am I missing? Anyone play this?

Supreme Ruler 1936 Official Release Announcement

Mon, 05/12/2014 - 16:08
Hello,

I just wanted to share our news. We are very excited to announce the official release for Supreme Ruler 1936;

Quote: Ancaster, Canada - May 9, 2014 – BattleGoat Studios is today pleased to announce the official launch of Supreme Ruler 1936.

There are thousands of historical events that may or may not come into play depending upon the actions of the player; players need to watch their economy, diplomacy, and even weather patterns floating across the world that could turn a potential battlefield into a muddy or snowy quagmire; and when they go to battle they have access to the historical military units of WWII and much, much, more!”

With four Campaigns, six Scenarios, and three Sandbox Maps playable from almost 100 different regions, Supreme Ruler 1936 brings the scope and sweep of World War II to strategy gamers. A Real-Time Geo-Political Strategy game, Supreme Ruler 1936 combines resources, economy, diplomacy, and battalion-level tactical warfare.

SpawnMe will search for players playing the same game as you who are also trying to find a match.

3. Enjoy!

Whenever a player has been found, a chat between you two will be created. Allowing you to view the other persons profile, check their information for the game and decide together what you are going to do next, weather it's killing a boss in-game or trading items.

But there is more!
More features are added to SpawnMe regularly, you can customize your profile, add your favorite games and add persons that you like to your friend list to give your profile a more personal feel.

Killing Floor 2 Announced

Thu, 05/08/2014 - 15:27
This was not the Tripwire announcement I've been waiting for. :( :D


Killing Floor 2 exclusive first look: co-op FPS horror with the most advanced gore system ever


It's funny: I thought the original was a solid game, and I definitely had some fun times with it, but for some reason I have completely forgotten all about this other Tripwire game. I really need to reinstall it and take a look.

Quote: [Killing Floor 2] is the first time we've been able to develop a game from start to finish with what I would call a reasonable size staff and a reasonable size budget," says John Gibson, Tripwire's president and a co-founder along with Munk.

Gibson is entertaining and outspoken for a company president. Tripwire's pedigree for realistic weaponry stems from Gibson's passion for them. Many guns in Killing Floor 2, like the Commando class's SCAR Mk 17 and AK-12, are modeled from his own personal collection. If he's not talking about guns or videogames, there's a good chance he's talking about cars. "Have you ever ridden in a DeLorean?" he asks me with a grin when we take a break for lunch. I have now ridden in a DeLorean.

Gibson and the other founding members of Tripwire had to take out loans to pay for their first game, Red Orchestra. They started as an Unreal Tournament 2004 mod team. Killing Floor was another Unreal mod, created by Alex Quick. Once Tripwire turned RO into a standalone game, they convinced Quick to port over Killing Floor. They played the mod so much, Gibson put Red Orchestra 2 on hold mid-development to turn Killing Floor into a full game. Ten people made the game in three months. As of 2014, Killing Floor has sold nearly 2.5 million copies.

Tripwire is now 50 employees strong. Killing Floor 2 is coming to Steam Early Access for Windows and Valve's SteamOS. When? Not as soon as I may want, Gibson says, but sooner than I may expect. After watching them play KF2, I know they got at least the first half of that statement right.

I didn't realize Tripwire has expanded to be such a big company! They way they stay in touch with the community would suggest it was still a very small operation. Good for them!

This also bodes well for the future of Red Orchestra. :cool:

Project Legion Announced by CCP

Fri, 05/02/2014 - 16:03
I am getting the sense that this is their DUST game but with a new coat of paint for the PC:

Project Legion announced, a first person shooter set in the Eve universe

Quote: Dust 514 is a free-to-play FPS extension of the EVE universe, bringing Battlefield-style team multiplayer to New Eden. The problem is, you can only play it on PlayStation 3. That is, until Project Legion is released. This is a new shooter by CCP that will appear on PC. Rather than simply port Dust over—although the games do share some features—they’re creating something new. We'll see. CCP's track record hasn't been stellar (pun) when it comes to making games other than EVE.

Company of Heroes 2 Free Weekend

Fri, 04/25/2014 - 15:58
Steam is having a free weekend (Thursday through Sunday 1pm) for Company of Heroes 2. I recall hearing a lot of bad stuff about the game but I played it last night and had a blast. Fighting against bots has that good feeling that the original DoW skirmish games had - a lot of sandbox fun. The only negative is that the game is a strange resource hog. I mean, I can play BF3 on high, but I can't push this game much beyond medium settings without losing frames. For a RTS??? Other people have noticed the same thing.

Anyhoo: I think I might pick up the digital deluxe edition - which includes the ungodly amount of DLC Relic has decided to use to milk their customers :rolleyes: - which is on sale for $27. Between this, RO2/Rising Storm, and finally upgrading my copy of CMBN with the Market Garden pack, my WWII gaming should be nicely covered. :D

Get Red Orchestra 2 for Free

Wed, 04/23/2014 - 15:35
This deserves a new thread just because it is such a generous deal! Free!

Yes! Free! :D

Red Orchestra 2 one-day deal will let you download and keep the game for free

Quote: Steam has a peculiar history with the word "free", thanks to its regular Free Weekends. Through them, you can get a free trial of the entirety of a game across a limited two-day period. Red Orchestra 2 will soon have one of these weekends, and an overall discount to go along with it. Even freer, though, is a deal that will go live for the multiplayer shooter later today. For a 24-hour period, you'll be able to download (and keep) the game forever, for free.

"Yes, Free!" confirms the enthusiastic Jared Creasy, Tripwire's community manager. "By navigating tohttp://store.steampowered.com/app/35450/ and downloading the game tomorrow after the promotion starts and before it ends (the promotion will last 24 hours), the game will be free to keep forever!"

As the article mentions, you will only get limited access to Rising Storm, though.
