Mordheim: City of the Damned Screenshots



July 24, 2014 — The development of Mordheim: City of the Damned, the first video game adaptation of the cult tabletop game, Mordheim, is going full steam ahead at developers Rogue Factor. Today, they’re taking a short break to share some new screenshots! Having previously unveiled the Skaven and the Human mercenaries, they are now revealing one of the next playable factions: the Sisters of Sigmar.

Mordheim: City of the Damned is a turn-based tactical game set in the Warhammer World’s doomed city, which blends elements of RPG, highly tactical turn-based combat and intricate unit customisation in a world overwhelmed by chaos and faction rivalry, and where the law of the strongest reigns supreme. Numerous factions are locked in battle in Mordheim, mainly for glory, fortune and power. Today’s images unveil the Sisters of Sigmar, one of the four playable factions of the game!

Made up exclusively of women, the Sisters of Sigmar fight in the City of the Damned for a very different reason than the other factions: whereas the mercenaries throughout the Old World are seeking the fame and fortune that the shards of Wyrdstone can grant them, and the Skaven covet the precious green shards for the power they contain, the Sisters of Sigmar are eager to find the Wyrdstones in order to hide it all, where it will not spread further into the Empire the wave of insanity that has engulfed Mordheim.

Riches and infamy await you late 2014 in Mordheim: City of the Damned!


Afterfall Reconquest Coming to Steam Early Access



July 21st  2014, Warsaw, Poland — After almost 3 years since Afterfall InSanity was released, gamers will finally get a chance to get back to the dark and dangerous post apocalyptic world. However Afterfall Reconquest, though set in the same universe, will be a completely different game than it’s predecessor, with a new, immersive storyline, believable characters and a completely new gameplay mechanics. All wrapped up into a story-driven action shooter with elements of RPG mechanics.

Check out the first AAA (After All Afterfall) Producer’s Diary here: After All Afterfall

In Afterfall Reconquest you’re stepping into a world after the outbreak of war. A war in which nuclear warheads weren’t the ultimate means of destruction, rather a stage in a self-made apocalypse. A new weapon was used. Nobody heard about the Entropy charges before the Day Zero and a few remained to tell the story after.

Only two groups of people managed to survive the apocalyptic conflict. The first consisted of the lucky ones who found shelter in one of the ‘sanctuary cities’ hidden deep in the mountains. Their luck, however, was the first resource to run out. Soon it became obvious that these havens weren’t self-sufficient. After a few years the resources started to deplete and when they finally ran dry, worn out and embittered survivors once again were forced to find a new place to call home.

Today, former inhabitants of the sanctuary cities descended into the valleys in search of fertile soil, clean water and resources to process into fuel and tools. Thus begins the RECONQUEST – slow and ardous process of taking the land back from mutants and wildlife and rebuilding the lost cities and civilization. As for the second group… their fate remains a mystery.

You are the Reaper. You don’t know how you and a few of your friends managed to survive the onslaught which wiped your family from the face of what’s left of the Earth. And you have one goal and one goal only – to avenge your parents. You don’t really care about factions roaming the earth and competing each other. As a Reaper you always worked alone trying not to get involved into politics. Traversing the wastelands on your ceaseless crusade against the mutants you stay in radio contact with other members of the group, exchanging information about dangers, discovered paths and settlements or any traces of mutants’ presence. However it soon turns out that your personal vendetta is just the beginning and trying to hunt down your personal enemy brings you to something you never wanted to get involved with…

Afterfall Reconquest is a story-driven action shooter with elements of RPG mechanics that takes place in the Afterfall universe. Divided into episodes, the game will first be available via Steam Early Access on the 24th of July 2014. Gamers will be able to buy the first episode, that’s about 1 hour long, for 6.99 EUR/USD.

We are really excited that Afterfall Reconquest will finally be available via Steam Early Access because this is something we’ve been working on hard for the past couple of months. We are really counting on gamers support and feedback about the game to learn what they like and what they don’t like, what should we improve or maybe what to add to make the game even better. We still have some time left until the release date so we’ll do our best to implement as many of those comments in the final game as possible. We do believe that even at this very early stage we were able to bring back Afterfall vibe and in the same time bring the gameplay experience to a whole new level. – said Tomasz Majka, Intoxicate Studios, Executive Producer.

You can check out the new screenshots below:


  • Afterfall universe
  • Detailed and extensive evironments
  • Post-apocalyptic setting
  • Big, semi-open world
  • An exciting and rich, immersive story
  • Living and breathing characters
  • Dynamic and challenging gameplay
  • Unforgatable comic style storytelling
  • Multiple, diverse opponents

June 30, 2014, Antwerp, Belgium – GRIN today revealed that Woolfe: The Redhood Diaries, its non-sugarcoated fairy tale platformer, will be showcased at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany from 13-17 August 2014.

GRIN will have a special playable build of Woolfe: The Redhood Diaries in the consumer area.

Woolfe: The Redhood Diaries is a unique interpretation of the French fairy tale, depicting a fearless Little Red Riding Hood as she embarks on a vendetta across a rich fantasy setting – including dangerous smoke-spewing factories, charming medieval villages and woodland landscapes twisted by evil forces.

Cosplayers are also encouraged to turn up as Red Riding Hood and have their picture taken at the GRIN photo booth, with the best being shared through the Woolfe: The Redhood Diaries community channels.

GRIN founder and CEO Wim Wouters said:
“We’re excited that Gamescom will be the first time that the public will be able to play Woolfe: The Redhood Diaries. Whilst the single level demo is still very much pre-beta it should give Gamescom attendees a taste of what awaits them when Woolfe is released next year – we can’t wait to hear what the public thinks of our dark fairy tale!”

Woolfe: The Redhood Diaries is part of Microsoft’s ID@Xbox publishing program, was nominated for a Selected Projects award during Game Connection America 2014, and was fast-tracked through Steam Greenlight. Woolfe: The Redhood Diaries is scheduled for release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC during Q1 2015.


Raven’s Cry Screenshots and Karaoke Video



Karlsruhe, June 27, 2014 – We have some brand-new screenshots for you today from the upcoming adventure RPG Raven’s Cry, as well as a raunchy pirate drinking song.

As you might imagine, manners in a pirate tavern are about as rough as the weather on the high seas. And after a successful raid, it’s no wonder that the men love nothing more than to celebrate with reckless abandon, squandering their hard-won earnings on rum, wenches, and gambling like there’s no tomorrow. And for some, there isn’t.

Our new Raven’s Cry karaoke video features these depraved sots singing their very own version of “Drunken Sailor”, known in those quarters as “Hangin’ Willie” (and for adult piratesonly!)

Along with last year’s “Sail with the Devil” video, the Raven’s Cry bonus will feature several more songs to sing along with – or whatever passes for singing.

Now you can celebrate too, because on October 14, 2014, Christopher Raven and his crew will be hoisting the black flag and arriving in ports the world over. Woe to those who stand in the way of Raven and his crew by not sharing this video! Oh, woe to them, Willie.


Expedition One Launched for Take On Mars



Prague, Czech Republic, Monday 23rd June 2014 — To resupply the first people on Mars, Bohemia Interactive today released a major content update for the Expedition One campaign of Take On Mars – the studio’s new space simulation game. The update delivers a manned scout buggy, mobile laboratory, an improved 3D printer, and many general fixes and improvements to the core game. The full changelog of the latest update is available at http://mars.takeonthegame.com/changelog.

Expedition One, which serves as the second part of Take On Mars’ Space Program campaign, provides players with the opportunity to take part in the first manned mission to the Red Planet. After they arrive on Mars, they will need to perform a multitude of scientific experiments, construct habitats spanning from shelters to entire installations, and search for viable sources of oxygen, water, and raw materials. Due to the limited amount of supplies the space shuttle can carry, one of the most significant challenges for the marsonauts will simply be surviving the harsh Martian environment. This means that participants will have to actively manage their oxygen levels, food stocks, grow plants, and operate drilling rigs in the search for new resources. Unpressurized and pressurized manned vehicles will be at their disposal to increase their mobility across the vast alien terrain.

To enlist for the Expedition One mission, people can sign up for Take On Mars’ Early Access program on Steam, where the game is currently available with a 15% Summer Sale discount (11.89 EUR/ 15.29 USD/ 10.19 GBP).

New Blue Estate Screens and Trailer

blue_estate_artwork-01 copy

blue_estate-03 copy

June 23, 2014 — Blue Estate, the darkly funny rail shooter developed by HESAW and based on the Eisner Award-nominated Blue Estate comic books from Viktor Kalvachev, will be available on PlayStation®4 tomorrow on the US PSN, and on Wednesday on the EU PSN! Moreover, PSN+ subscribers will be pleased to discover a 20% discount has been prepared exclusively for them!

On this occasion, meet in a new video trailer one of the two protagonists of the game, Tony Luciano, demonstrating – with a lot of style – the gameplay entirely designed from the ground up to exploit he gyroscopic features of the new PlayStation®4 controller.

Blue Estate offers slick wit and punishing violence through a genuinely fun and intuitive control system, all set in an eye-popping technicolor mob world.

In Blue Estate, the players will play as Tony Luciano, the homicidal maniac son of LA’s crime boss Don Luciano, and Clarence, a broke ex-navy seal who has been hired to clean up Tony’s mess. While Tony wages war with the Sik gang in an attempt to get back his kidnapped “Helen of Troy”, Clarence has to try to end that war against increasing odds.

While experiencing the smoothness of motion control in a rail shooter, using the unique motion sensor capabilities of the PlayStation®4, the player will enter a fight for his life against the most absurd and dangerous enemies, such as scar covered champions that fight-to-the-death, Tony’s own hair and Chihuahuas that are too happy to see you. Players are given a series of primary and secondary weapons to help make their way through the hilariously perilous missions which will come in handy defeating the bosses who’ll try to end your game and your life. But sometimes firepower isn’t enough, so think before shooting and use cover to prepare your strategy, reload often, and try not to get turned into grated cheese.

A killing spree is always better when shared, and that’s why Blue Estate offers the opportunity for a second player to join the fun, through a cooperative mode where every headshot counts to show who’s the best trigger in da house!

Blue Estate will be available tomorrow on the US PSN, and on Wednesday on the EU PSN. PSN+ subscribers are entitled to an exceptional 20% discount.
