Redneck Ed Astro Monster Show Comes to PC This Year

 

Rustic Fantastic development studio and 101XP publishing team are excited to announce that the cosmic arcade-style beat ’em up Redneck Ed: Astro Monsters Show is coming to PC this year.

Redneck Ed: Astro Monsters Show is an arcade beat-’em-up set in an intergalactic game show. Forced to compete in gruesome challenges to reclaim his stolen face, Ed must endure this torturous reality show while also trying to take down the sinister forces behind this business we call show.

Featuring hand-drawn art inspired by cartoonishly grotesque animation like Ren & Stimpy, Redneck Ed: Astro Monsters Show takes players through some of the weirdest and wildest worlds imaginable. As you battle through waves of bloodthirsty aliens, you’ll get a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the inner workings of the most sadistic game show in the universe.

While making their way through the game’s worlds, the player will end up working towards one of several possible endings, determined by the set of side quests they choose to complete. Ed’s really gonna have to get his hands dirty by completing various tasks for the local aliens. Well, at least the ones who do not immediately want to kill him, that is!

To get an early look at Redneck Ed: Astro Monsters Show, a free demo will be available as part of the Steam Game Festival June 16th – 22nd. It’s only available for a limited time, so sign up here as a reminder to ensure you don’t miss out!

“I’ve always been a fan of strange alien worlds and arcade action, and with Redneck Ed: Astro Monsters Show I let my imagination run wild,” ssaid Olga Makushenko, Managing Director of Premium Games at 101XP. “It goes to some really outlandish places, but the whole thing is wrapped up in satire about showbiz, which has become more outlandish than ever in today’s world of reality TV and celebrity culture. Redneck Ed has been a trip to make and I can’t wait for people to lay eyes on its bizarre sights for the first time.”

Darius Cozmic Collections Coming to PS4 and Nintendo Switch June 16th

 

The Darius series pioneered horizontal Shoot ‘Em Up games and was developed by the legendary TAITO Corporation. The first Darius game wowed arcade going fans when it was

released in 1986 with its dedicated dual-display cabinet, imaginative enemy designs and revolutionary sound design.

The first Darius is set in a futuristic 2D world, where the player pilots a Silver Hawk craft alone, or with a second player, and shoots their way through enemy hordes, navigating tricky terrain and battling giant robotic sea creatures.  Armed with missiles, bombs and a forcefield, which can be powered up along the way, the players must defeat the alien invaders through a series of branching ‘zones’ to be victorious.

Numerous sequels and ports followed over the years, setting new standards for Shoot ‘Em Up excellence each time, from the outstanding soundtracks,  to the unforgettable, aquatic-lifeform-themed boss design and the innovative branching paths at the end of each section

The Darius Cozmic Collection represents the classic 2D history of this iconic Shoot ‘Em Up series. All games have been faithfully ported to modern consoles by M2 in Japan, so gamers can rest assured that these are absolutely high-quality ports with perfect performance – as one would expect from the retro game experts at M2.

Jump King Out Now for PS4, XB1 and Nintendo Switch

 

Every point of progress is saved along the way… but so is every setback. Jumps that cause minor grievances one time may become the bane of your existence upon encountering them again. Experimenting with different routes or tactics is recommended as there are many paths to success in Jump King. All this is wrapped up in a nostalgic pixel art aesthetic, full of colorful characters and evocative locales.

Make no mistake, Jump King is an extraordinarily difficult game that will be relished by anyone looking for a tough but fair challenge. It’s sadistic enough to drive a seasoned gamer to tears, yet accessible enough due to its simple controls and mechanics for anyone to overcome its challenges – perseverance is key! Do you have what it takes to be the one true Jump King?

“Dear console gamers, you are not prepared for this emotional journey! Your soul will be put to the ultimate test in our platforming game where all you do is jump…. sounds simple, right?” said Erik Säll of Nexile. “Let’s just say it is not as easy as you might think. Much due to it being such a personal challenge; there is nearly no randomness in the game so it all comes down to your skill! Every mistake and success is your own. With perseverance and a bit of luck we believe anyone can beat Jump King though! We recommend every console gamer to take up this challenge, and now you can even do it from the comfort of your own sofa!”

 

Now I copy and pasted that from the email they sent me, but I will translate. This game is about jumping, a lot. And it will probably piss a lot of us off. But there is supposed to be a really REALLY hot chick at the top. I am hoping to give this one a try because I feel like the chick at the top is ugly as hell, but there is only one way to find out. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

HammerHelm Receives Massive Update in Steam Early Access

 

So I got an email from my friends over at Soedesco and they said hey Savior, well they used my real name, but anyway they said check this out. Our game HammerHelm got a massive update over on Steam’s early access. If you don’t mind we would love for you to have a look and maybe pass it along.

Now full disclosure, I have NOT played this game. They have not offered me a copy nor have I asked for one. I just watched the trailer and some gameplay and thought this is something you guys may like to check out. It has been out a bit and has 83% from 118 reviews on Steam which is a very positive rating. The general gameplay is simply built a town, which used to be 30 buildings and is now 45, and has over 100 items to craft. These are things like Birch and Cherry blossom trees and other things to just make your town look better.

They have also Increased the area you can build your town quite a lot, not that it looked small before but now it seems to be quite significant in size. You will need to keep your citizens happy, as you lead the dwarfs of HammerHelm in their dream to live above ground. That doesn’t mean you won’t be going underground and fighting monsters tho, as that will be a must as you finish an assortment of quest in action-based combat. This is one you guys definitely want to check out and enjoy the screenshots below. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

 

 

Adam’s Venture: Origins now Available on Nintendo Switch

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
