Rain World
Rain World

Arcade Tuesday, 28 March 2017

A hybrid of a platform and a survival game. The title was developed by two people – Joar Lisberg Jakobsson was the lead programmer and the author of the idea of the game while the music was composed by James Primate. The game takes place in a hostile post-industrial realm filled with complicated machinery. The environment is constantly plagued by downpours and the animals that live in it are forced to hide from the rain in a hibernated state. The main protagonist is Slugcat – a creature that is similar to a cat. It is tasked with gathering enough food to survive the forced resting time. What’s interesting, the ecosystem is filled both with creatures smaller than Slugcat and ones that are much larger. This makes the protagonist the hunter and the prey at the same time. The gameplay concentrates on visiting atmospheric locations, avoiding confrontation with larger predators and avoiding traps and other dangers. Luckily, the unusual protagonist isn’t completely defenseless – he can use a spear that allows him to kill or stun other creatures. Rain World can be played alone or in cooperation mode. Low-key colors and simple graphics fit the grim atmosphere of the game.

Day of Infamy
Day of Infamy

Action Tuesday, 28 March 2017

An online first-person shooter set during the Second World War and developed by New World Interactive. The game has its roots in a modification for Insurgency, a game created by the same team. The gameplay here is based on the fundamentals of the said predecessor, delivering a realistic, tactical shooter game that places the ability to plan and cooperate within the team above good reflexes - one stray bullet can put an end to the player's life in this game. The game allows for competition on several famous battlefields of the World War II, such as beaches of Sicily or Belgian forests covered with snow. Depending on the game mode, the teams are required to achieve certain goals, such as taking over the outposts. In comparison to Insurgency, the game introduces many elements making the gameplay more enjoyable. For instance, the opportunity to get promoted and become an officer or call in an artillery strike. Also, the guns behave more convincingly now.

RPG Tuesday, 28 March 2017

A rougelike side-scroller developed by Frozenbyte. The players assume control over a ragtag group of heroes a little over their prime. The team receives a final task – escorting two princesses to a special academy. Unfortunately, the mission won’t be easy, as there will be numerous dangers lurking along the way. We begin the game with choosing three characters from an available pool of twelve different heroes. The game sees the trio defend the princesses against continuous waves of varied opponents that force us to switch tactics according to the situation at hand. Each hero carries unique equipment, as well as his own set of spells – in all, we can make use of over 300 spells and 200 items. Our mission will see the players travel through 14 different environments. The clashes are randomly generated, making each playthrough different and challenging. Interestingly enough, loosing (either through death or the capture of princesses) means having to start over from scratch. Has-Been Heroes is characterized by simple, cartoonish art-style.

The French Army is the new playable faction introduced in this expansion, and Trench Raider is the new elite class, which specializes in melee combat and use of grenades. They Shall Not Pass also brings new equipment, namely Char 2C Super Heavy Tank, St. Chamond tank, and Siege Howitzer.

Outcast: Second Contact
Outcast: Second Contact

Adventure Thursday, 30 March 2017

A refreshed version of a third-person perspective action-adventure game from 1999. The remake was prepared by Appeal – a reincarnation of the studio responsible for the original version. Outcast: Second Contact takes place in a science-fiction world, inspired by Stargate – a popular fictional universe, depicted in a number of movies and TV series. When USA sends a research probe into space, the device gets destroyed by the alien race of Talans, creating a black hole which is a direct threat to Earth. To save the world from destruction, humanity sends a group of scientists protected by a seasoned military veteran, Cutter Slade. When it comes to mechanics, the game is a mix of different genres, offering an open world and freedom of exploration, conversation, and performing tasks. Variety is definitely one of the strong points of the game: we face numerous logical puzzles, but dynamic arcade sequences are perhaps the main element of the gameplay. During those, Outcast becomes a classic third-person perspective shooter.

Franklin is another of the characters the player will be in control of in this game; one day, he (Franklin) discovers that he has died. The player will also assume control of two detectives investigating a case of a body found nearby; Dolores on the other hand, needs to read the testament of her rich uncle. When it comes to the story, the creators mixed a unique taste in humor with different possible endings. All of this is complemented by visuals modeled after LucasArts' classics, as well as an interface resembling the legendary SCUMM system.

Beat Cop
Beat Cop

Adventure Thursday, 30 March 2017

The result of the independent Polish studio Pixel Crow's cooperation with 11 bit studios, the creators of This War of Mine. Beat cop is a point-and-click time management game. You play as Jack Kelly, a former NYC detective who was framed for murder and demoted. Hated by everyone around, Jack is trying to reconcile his duties with conducting a private investigation in order to discover who framed him. The plot of Beat Cop is non-linear and its many endings depend on your decisions. Interestingly, the game was inspired by American crime TV shows from the 70s and 80s, which is reflected in its atmosphere and humor. The time-management element of the production is most visible when you're patrolling the streets of Brooklyn, while during the investigation segments it becomes a detective/adventure game. Beat Cop has a distinct retro feel thanks to its pixel-art graphics and oldschool soundtrack.

Adventure Friday, 31 March 2017

A science-fiction survival horror game developed by the independent studio Lunar Software. The story focuses on discovering the causes behind the staff disappearance at the Lunar Research Station. In the game, the player travels through dark and claustrophobic chambers of the facility, gradually uncovering its secrets. The main item the player uses throughout the game is a special fixing tool which resembles a pistol. The player can modify this tool using disks which can be found around the station, thus the device can be used also as a weapon. The creators placed special emphasis on a convincing atmosphere the experience comes with, and the survival aspect of it. The latter means that the interface is minimal and each death of the protagonist is permanent. Many parts of the virtual station are randomly generated, such as different threats or the locations of NPCs. As a result, each playthrough can be completely different.

Crawl
Crawl

RPG 11 April 2017

A roguelike hack'n'slash game featuring pixel-art visuals. Crawl was designed specifically for local multiplayer and developed by the debuting team at Powerhoof. In the game, heroes exploring dungeons encounter monsters defending the place against undesired visitors. Up to four players can meet in a session - one of them assumes the role of the hero traversing dungeons filled with threats. The remaining players control various monsters, whose task is to prepare traps and obstacles in order to make it more difficult for the hero to achieve their goal. In terms of mechanics, the game resembles classic roguelike RPGs, in which the player gathers parts of equipment scattered throughout dungeons and levels up gradually, improving their skills. When the hero dies, the players swap their roles, but interestingly, the new hero keeps both the items and experience gathered by the player who was previously in control of that character. Once the hero has reached level 10, they go through a mysterious portal and the final boss fight begins.
