Free Helheim Hassle demo is available now on PC and Nintendo Switch

Manual Samuel developer Perfectly Paranormal’s upcoming limb defiling, body desecrating puzzle-platformer adventure – Helheim Hassle has got a free demo available to download today on PC via Steam and the Nintendo Switch on the eShop. If you’ve been itching to try out the latest title from the minds of Manual Samuel, then now is the time! The full game will be released on Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch on August 18th. A PlayStation 4 version is also coming a little later in 2020.

Helheim Hassle is a comedic yet macabre narrative adventure game, from the same universe as their previous hit Manual Samuel, that is as much about friendship as it is about body parts. You play as Bjørn, a pacifist Viking who hates the idea of dying and going to Valhalla (who then ends up dying and getting taken to Valhalla) as he seeks to negotiate his way out while helping the mysterious Pesto on a quest to retrieve a certain magical item… In return, Pesto will try to grant Bjørn a permanent residence in Helheim – what a hassle!

This demo is a preview of the madness you might come to see in Helheim Hassle. Witness the mood of the world, meet some main characters, deal with a few goblins and dip your toes in some Puzzles. But don’t detach your toes yet, that comes in the full version; which features up to 70 quests across 14 levels, requiring the use of all manner of different body part combos to complete the game’s unique puzzle-platforming challenges.

Collector's Edition and Limited Edition Packshots

Game Set Up

Ys Origin presents a game through an emotional and exciting story, which takes place 700 years before the two first games of the series – Ys I & Ys II.

A demon invasion threatens the land and the two goddesses of Ys vanished. The player sets off with a search party to follow the tracks of the goddesses. Fans of the series may expect to play as the well-known protagonist of the Ys Series, Adol Christin, but this time the player has the choice to start the journey as the apprentice knight Yunica Tovah or the sorcerer Hugo Fact. Ys Origin presents different playable characters with different skills. Yunica is the bright and optimistic girl focusing on physical strength, whilst Hugo is a calm, analytical young man with strong magic powers.

As the game progresses, the player gets the chance to unlock a third playable character and different areas and settings unfold throughout. The game features a great guitar soundtrack, that reminds of earlier Ys games. Both audio and visual presentation, along with superb control of your cast, makes for deep and exciting play.

Last Labyrinth – Physically Boxed Virtual Reality Experience

Strictly Limited Games is excited to announce that they have acquired the rights for an exclusive, limited-print physical release of the PlayStation VR game Last Labyrinth – an escape adventure game on PlayStation 4. Pre-orders for the Collector’s and Limited Editions of Last Labyrinth will start later this year.

 

A VR Escape Adventure Game

Last Labyrinth is a VR escape adventure game, where the player is trapped in an obscure mansion and joins forces with the mysterious girl, Katia, to solve numerous riddles in an attempt to escape from the mansion.

You are vulnerable and tied up. With your arms and hands bound and immobilised in a wheelchair, you are at the mercy and reliance of Katia. She is your only way of escape from the mansion in an intensive, meticulous and inventive series of escape room puzzles. The ever increasing complexity of riddles, and their diversity, which may be number related or brain teasing weight balancing, must be solved in order to venture on.

Puzzles and stunning atmosphere

Uniquely constructed and designed puzzles, minimalistic controls to ensure fluid and intuitive gameplay are accentuated with stunning atmospheric music.

A high-profile team

The expertise behind the creation of Last Labyrinth is unmatched within the VR genre. Created by a team of veteran Japanese developers whose previous works include classic titles such as ICO, The Last Guardian, Shadow of the Colossus, Puppeteer and the Doko Demo Issyo series (Toro, the Sony Cat).

The voice of the mysterious girl Katia is Stefanie Joosten, who played the role of the beautiful, wordless sniper “Quiet” in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. She works as a model, actress and singer in Japan and abroad. Stefanie Joosten feels honored to be part of Last Labyrinth: “It’s a huge honor to be part of Last Labyrinth. When I first played the demo, I immediately felt completely sucked into its mysterious world. It lets you experience VR in a way I have never seen before. I think it will be a completely new experience to players worldwide.”

Mysterious girl

The theme song was composed by Hiroki Kikuta, who has worked on numerous games including Secret of Mana and Soulcalibur V.

Last Labyrinth is a virtually unmissable and distinctive encounter where reality is closer than you imagine. Can you escape a hostile mansion along with a girl words cannot reach?

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Gameplay trailer

It’s no surprise the latest Assassin’s Creed to drop looks like it’s shaping up to be the best we’ve seen in ages. I love the combat changes and the graphics look stunning but I can’t help but wish it wasn’t an Assassin’s Creed game but a whole new IP instead. I’m wishing for the best and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Watch Dogs: Legion cinematic trailer

I like the cyberpunk vision they are going for and the narration is a nice touch even though I’m getting bored of dystopia. The break neck pacing was jarring but some of the action scenes are cool. I think the gameplay trailer was better than the cinematic, but this conveys a message that it’s here. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

Watch Dogs: Legion gameplay overview

I’ve never been into the Watch Dogs series, even though many people have told me 2 was a huge step in the right direction. Legion looks like a blast and I like the inspiration taken from Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood and the loads of different ways to play the game out. Legion very well might be where I start the series. May the gaming gods bring you glory.
