Shadowrun Returns First In-Game Assets Revealed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment

Harebrained Schemes has released a new blog post featuring some images and art from the upcoming Shadowrun Returns RPG. The new visuals feature some of the in-game assets the company is currently working with in the creation of the game.

Shadowrun Returns features turn-based tactical action. During action sequences like data heists or infiltration missions, you control a team of shadowrunners, pitting them against antagonists ranging from powerful individuals to a small army.

Therefore, your point-of-view needs to be far enough to give you a commanding view of the “battlefield”. If you’re able to see that many characters at once, our models need to be low-poly enough to render lots at the same time while also rendering a rich environment on a variety of devices. These choices resulted in character models of roughly 2,000 polys each.

We’ve already released some character design concept art but this is the first time we’re showing real-live-game-res models of player characters available in the game.

6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Puppy Punch Productions has announced a September 24 release for Colour Bind. The physics puzzler introduces players to a world where gravity is governed by color rather than mass. To succeed they will need to master Colour Bind's unique mechanics.

Colour Bind is a physics platform-puzzler set in an abstract world where gravity is determined not by mass, but by colour. Navigate this unique world by manipulating colour and gravity to solve each level. Beating each unique puzzle in Colour Bind will take patience, intelligence, quick reflexes and sometimes even a helping hand from a friend.

KEY FEATURES:

    A TRUE CHALLENGE: Over 50 unique puzzles with multiple solutions will keep you platforming for a long time. This game is hard. Early-90?s hard. Don’t be afraid to step back and think.

    COLOUR-BASED PHYSICS: Change your colour and manipulate each level’s gravity to solve every puzzle. Primary colours have different gravities applied to them, and when combined form a secondary colour that takes the vector sum of that gravity.

    A WORLD OF SECRETS: Take your time to explore every level. There’s a world of hidden solutions, distractions, and more to discover. Can you unlock every achievement?

    PROCEDURAL MUSIC: Colour doesn’t only control your physical experience, but your aural as well. Each colour has a different music track, and combining and changing your colour will mix these tracks on the fly to transform your auditory experience.

    PLAY WITH A FRIEND: 20 local co-op levels that take not only two hands, but two minds to defeat. It will take impeccable timing and skill to reach the end. The ultimate challenge for the ambidextrous gamer.

    CREATE YOUR OWN LEVELS: ColourBind’s challenge doesn’t stop once you’ve beaten every level. Download new levels through Steam Workshop or create your own with ColourBind’s fully featured level editor for a never-ending experience!

    LEADERBOARDS AND ACHIEVEMENTS: Compete with your friends online to get the fastest times per level! Can you find the fastest alternate solutions and jump to the top of the leaderboards?
