31 Aug

mew-genics

We told you about Mew-Genics a while ago. The game has been (and still is) in development since then, but today we’re finally able to show the very first trailer. Yep, in fact Team Meat has released it today; unfortunately no gameplay for now…so let’s call it a teaser. Enjoy.

Yes…there are cats, lot of them…and yes again…some of them are having sex…

Nintendo 2DS unboxing

29 Aug

nintendo 2ds unboxingIt was just yesterday when Nintendo announced the brand new (and quite ugly) Nintendo 2DS, and it seems that someone already put his hands on it and did the very first video unboxing.

We know that the video is in Italian and you (actually we) are not gonna understand a single word, but hey, they’ve put English subtitles, so yuppi! Enjoy!

Here’s the Nintendo 2DS! Wait…what?

28 Aug

Yep, you read it right and it’s not a typo. Nintendo has really unveiled a new handheld called Nintendo 2DS! Also yes, it is exactly how you can see from the pic above, a one piece handheld device.

When we first heard the news, we immediately check the calendar, looking for an April 1st on today’s date…but not. This is real, and in our opinion pointless.

Nintendo is claiming that the new 2DS is capable of playing original DS and 3DS games in amazing…2D (you don’t say?).

Also, seems that the new portable console will be available this October in NA and Europe only for, at least, the quite cheap price of 129.99$

Here’s the official trailer.

But, what are the real differences among all the Nintendo handhelds now on the market? Here’s a sum!

This new Professor Layton game looks…not like a Layton game

Well, today Level-5 has announced a brand new Professor Layton game. Yes, even if Profesor Layton and the Azran Legacy should have been the last one.

So you’re now thinking that this is actually a good news. Well, it’s too early to know if you’re right or not, because the new Layton game presented today, called just Layton 7, is headed to iOS, Android and Nintendo 3DS, and it looks a lot different from all the previous titles in the series.

Here are the very first screenshots released by Famitsu today.

Happy birthday to Hideo Kojima

27 Aug

If you’re a fan of Metal Gear saga, or even if you’re not, you should probably pay homage to one of the biggest video game geniuses of this decade. In fact, Hideo Kojima has turned 50 today (dispite what Wikipedia wrongly say).

But what the game designer has to say regarding his birthday. Not much actually, but that’s not a news for the cryptic man.

Not so exciting. Got it. Happy birthday anyway Kojima-san!

AdventureOS will create levels based on your computer’s files

26 Aug

AdventureOS

Yep, you read the title right. AdvertureOS is an 2.5D RPG/Metroidvania adventure based game that is entirely auto-generated by the content (folders and files) of your computer. Each room, object, enemy, puzzle, key, treasure and boss. It’s actually an interpretation of the files you can find on the computer where the game is running, making each adventure as exciting as unique for each user.

But let the developer, Evelend Games from Spain, better explain how the game really works with this video.

A PC, Mac and Linux release is planned if they reach their goal. You can find the project on Indiegogo at the following link, where you can find also more info about the gameplay and everything.

(Don’t worry, your porn’s gonna be fine)

Hot Tin Roof is the new 3D noir cat-filled game from Glass Bottom

26 Aug

Do you remember Glass Bottom Games? The guys (actually more gals) that made Jones on Fire? Well, they’re back, and this time to bring us  Hot Tin Roof: The Cat That Wore A Fedora. It’s a noir 3D side-scrolling platformer (currently) for PC, Mac and Linux where players have to explore and uncover clues, with the usual bit of cats here and there.

You’re Emma Jones, a two bit girl in an 8-bit world, and you’re the private investigator on a string of grisly murders.  You’ll run, jump and climb through a massive 3D city, sleuthing up clues and tracking down the killer. Enjoy the trailer.

We had the luck to try a beta version in advance (but ssshh, that’s a secret!) and it looks gorgeous! Definitely something we want to see finished! You all be able to try it too at next PAX.

Hot Tin Roof is currently on Kickstarter (throw them some money here) and on Steam Greenlight (vote it here).

Still uncertain if backing the game or not? Here are some features you might want consider:

    • Noir as fuck.
    • Tons of platforming and exploring, hunting for clues.
    • Cats, but not JUST cats. Pigeons too, and rats!
    • Metroidvania-esque – just more of the Metroid, less of the vania.

That’s all, we can just hope all the luck to Glass Bottom Games for their new project, hoping it’ll be able to see the light of day.
