Dog Duty (Preview)

Rotterdam, the Netherlands – February 12, 2020 – The Real Time Tactics game Dog Duty is coming to Nintendo Switch™, PlayStation®4, Xbox One, and Steam® in the spring of 2020. The fast-paced game is currently in Early Access on Steam and is being developed by indie developer Zanardi & Liza. Co-developer SOEDESCO Studios is also involved in the development of Dog Duty and is mainly focusing on the console version of the game. The action-packed title offers players epic gunfights and a healthy dose of humor as they try to defeat the evil octopus army.

 

With Dog Duty in its final development stages in Early Access on Steam, Leonardo Zimbres, founder of development studio Zanardi & Liza, is excited to see the game come to Nintendo Switch, PS4™ and Xbox One. “It’s great to work together with SOEDESCO Studios on the development of Dog Duty and to see them bring the game to other platforms. I’m confident in their skills, as they’ve made great progress so far. The console version looks and plays well and I can’t wait for the release.”

During its Early Access period on Steam, Dog Duty has already received several huge updates. With feedback from the community, Zanardi & Liza worked hard on further improving the game. They have added new playable characters and enemies. Players can now assemble a squad of 3 out of 8 playable characters. Zanardi & Liza have also completely revamped the UI, adding more dialogues and encounters with both friendly and enemy NPCs. Via a whole new radio deploy system, players can engage with conquered and enemy outposts. For example, players now receive taunting messages from outposts that have not been conquered yet. The Nintendo Switch, PS4 and Xbox One version will also be released with these updates.

Name The Monster

NAME THE DREADLANDS MONSTER

An epic monster deserves an epic name

STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN, February 12, 2020. Fatshark and Blackfox Studios are in need of a creative soul that will help us give our unnamed monster a name that a gruesome monster deserves.

We are looking for a name, and you can be the Senior Monster Name Specialist at Blackfox Studios. The position is only open for one unnamed monster which so far is unknown to the masses.

The brief is simple, send us your best ideas for a name that people in the Dreadlands can include in their stories and tall tales, like when they faced this monstrous beast head-on bare knuckles and all and survived to tell the tale. Of course, that’s just the Dreadlands version of the fish story; no mortal man would survive a fist fight with “new name here”!

The best name submitted will be included in the game, and will forever be the name of this deadly beast in Dreadlands. Who knows, you could be the lucky person who names the monster, and get your name in the credits (hey, now you’re a game developer!).

Here’s where to send all your best name ideas www.playdreadlands.com/name-the-monster

No joke, click the link and name the monster pictured. There is a prize for the winning name. Good luck my friends, may the gaming gods smile upon you.

Liberated, 9 Minutes of Gameplay

Liberated, one of the most exciting Polish video games of the first half of the year, is a groundbreaking, award winning, new vision of the future of digital comics. Panel by panel, you’ll switch between action, stealth, puzzles, and an engaging comic book story with compelling player-led choices. Liberated is coming first to Nintendo Switch in 2020, shortly followed by PC on GOG and Steam.

Liberated is set in a near-future, tech-noir society slipping into the throes of authoritarianism. Powered by corporations and enabled by new technology, join the fight against state-driven misinformation. As government surveillance and weaponised personal data have painted the world in shades of grey, knowing where to draw the line between revolution and terrorism has never been more paramount.

Publisher Walkabout Games have released nine minutes of brand new direct feed gameplay of the game. In this footage, you’ll see the main character Barry Edwards being taken to the headquarters of the mysterious insurgent group “Liberated” after being intercepted by one of its members. The video shows off the seamless transitions between storytelling and gameplay, as told through Barry’s first infiltration mission, including some precision shooting and an exciting driving segment.

The game itself seems pretty exciting, and I must admit it looks quite unique as well. Check out the gameplay below and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Mosaic Out Now on PS4

 

Mosaic (Console release date) is an odd game, one I have talked about before. The entire purpose of the game seems to be to just make you bored out of your damn mind with the mundane task of your life so that you simply refuse to do them and go off and do whatever you want to avoid doing them and by doing so, bring some color and fun into the world itself. This is one of those games I am curious about because it seems like a silly idea, but just silly enough to work. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
