Pirate Outlaws

Originally released to critical acclaim on iOS and Android, Pirates Outlaws on Steam Early Access, has been given a vast upgrade from its mobile origin by improving the game’s progression, removing in-app purchases/microtransactions, and introducing a new way to unlock characters, upgrades and packages.

Pirates Outlaws is a roguelike card game where you build your deck and develop combos as you become the most notorious pirate to sail the seven seas. Choose from one of 11 playable heroes, with a range of different abilities, as you scour the horizons to improve your deck from amongst 450+ cards and 150 relics while engaging in turn-based battles with all foes that stand in your way.

Choose from two game modes: In Navigate, you sail from isle to isle on a procedurally generated map, conquering all as you battle 70 outlaws and face off against 45 unique bosses. With five unique seas within six chapters, this provides plenty of opportunities to build the ultimate deck and refine your combat style.

The second mode, Arena, is for players who prefer a greater challenge. Here you are thrown into an arena with enemies from three chapters. Armed only with your premade deck and relics, you’re tasked with defeating unique champions as you try to attain the 20 available trophies in order to unlock special upgrades and new skins. There’s booty a’plenty for all!

“We’re so excited to bring the “Fabled” package to the Pirates Outlaws community to thank them for their continued support over the past year,” said Nicolas Lavergne, Director of Fabled Game Studio. “As we improve the game with the help of our amazing fan base, we look forward to the players enjoying the unprecedented deck-building potential we have to offer!”

Truck Driver Coming To Nintendo Switch

SOEDESCO® announced that Truck Driver is coming both digitally and physically to Nintendo Switch™. The well-received trucking experience released on Playstation®4 and Xbox One last year and has since received several significant updates. The Nintendo Switch version will come with these improvements, as well as Nintendo specific features, including tilt controls and HD Rumble support.

Truck Driver offers a unique trucking experience with a wide range of cargo and interesting characters to work with.

Since the game released on PS4 and Xbox One in September last year, Truck Driver received a new photo mode, rain effects on windshields, wipers, and several updates that improve the overall player experience of the game. Currently, Truck Driver is getting a Unity engine upgrade, which will result in smoother frame rates, less stutters and an overall improvement in graphics with better shades and textures. Further improving the game will continue to be a priority for SOEDESCO and development studio Kokku. All the updates will be implemented into the Nintendo Switch version as well, which makes it a great addition to all trucker fans out there who’d like to be a truck driver on the road.

Europa Universalis IV Emperor Announced

From the churches of Rome, the people are called to abide by the one true faith. From the palaces of Vienna, the subjects are commanded to obey their chosen ruler. From the streets of Paris, a new generation of citizens pursues its own zealous mission. All choose their path, all aspire to Empire.

Blaze Revolutions (Preview)

Developed by Little Chicken Game Company, Blaze Revolutions is an RTS set in a dystopian future, where the totalitarian SomaCorp surveys all, pollutes the environment and rules through misinformation campaigns. It’s up to you to cultivate your product, hack drones, evade SomaCorp surveillance and manage your resources as you turn this grassroots movement into an eco-friendly empire!

Aside from being an RTS with stealth and economic management mechanics, Blaze is a thriller with a deep narrative and strong character development about the effects big business and government corruption have on our planet. Our environment is suffering pollution, small businesses are going under as big corporations grow increasingly stronger, and governments are tightening their chokehold on the common man. The revolution is industrial, as well as social: Blaze Revolutions envisions a future where society rises up and creates idyllic enterprises using the natural resource of cannabis!

Blaze Revolutions is more than a fun RTS, it’s a topical look at where society is heading if we don’t do something about it,” said Little Chicken Game Company Lead Developer, Erik Kors. “We realize that cannabis isn’t legal in all parts of the world, as it is here in Amsterdam, but we’d urge people to look past the green leaf. Cannabis is just a symbol of resistance: organic, medicinal, useful for crafting, and hopeful. We hope you’ll embark on this journey with us. Viva la revolucion!”

Othercide (Preview)

Focus Home Interactive and Lightbulb Crew have revealed that the gothic tactical RPG Othercide will come to PlayStation®4, Xbox One and PC this summer. Othercide marries the dark art design and world-building of the horror genre with the deep systems and challenges of a strategy game for a truly gripping experience.

Combat in Othercide is a spectacular dance of actions and counters built around a dynamic turn system. Command an army of Daughters, haunting echoes of the greatest warrior to ever live, in deadly battles against horrific dread creatures and bosses birthed from the worst of humanity’s crimes. Interrupt enemy attacks while planning and setting up your own chain of actions later in the timeline to perform devastating assaults on your foes.

Othercide’s visually stunning universe is ruthless: you’ll face deadly missions, roguelite features like limited resources and permadeath, and the difficult decision to sacrifice one Daughter to make another stronger. Your prowess in combat will decide the fate of your Daughters, shaping their stats, abilities and personalities for better or worse, evolving over time into a reflection of your actions.

Sniff out clues and evidence, interrogate a diverse cast of characters, solve stealth puzzles, and choose which leads to follow. Backbone delivers a unique universe based on the real Vancouver, brought to life with a stunning modern pixel art aesthetic and original dark jazz soundtrack.
