Adam’s Venture: Origins now Available on Nintendo Switch

 

Adam’s Venture Origins released on May 29th from publisher Soedesco.  The game takes place in the 1920’s and you play as Adam Venture and will attempt to unravel the secret of Eden. There will be puzzles to solve and ancient ruins to explore. I personally have not played the game myself, but the story sounds quite interesting, and as you can see from the launch trailer above the game does a nice job capturing the feel of being in an underground temple. I have listed a few of the games features below, best wishes, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

 

  • Delve into ancient ruins and recover mysterious artifacts
  • Try to solve clever and creative puzzles on your journey

SECOND EXTINCTION CO-OP SHOOTER FOR XBOX SERIES X, XBOX ONE & PC

Hardspace: Shipbreaker Goes into Steam Early Acess June 16th

 

Shipbreaker is one of those games I have been watching and I can tell you plenty about and yet nothing about at the same time. You play as a sort of space scavenger to help humanity gather needed resources from abandoned ships, and how you do it isn’t exactly defined. You get your two major tools and sent on your way. As you progress you can upgrade those tools to be more powerful or reach longer distances and such. This all seems rather interesting, but at the same time, I can’t tell you about any sort of a story or purpose for doing all of this. You will notice in the video however that they do play on a PS4 and XB1 controller while testing, and I can confirm this is because the game is in development for both consoles, Steam Early access is just first as is usually the case. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
