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

Two Guys From Andromeda has released a new video showcasing some early footage of Two Guys SpaceVenture, the upcoming new sci-fi adventure game. In development by Scott Murphy and Mark Crowe, creators of the classic Space Quest series, the game will feature the trademark game elements of the team's previous efforts.

As promised, we have an update for you today! First off, you are probably wondering why we haven't had anything really cool to share in awhile.. well, to be honest, we have been working on a surprise involving a playable alpha for everyone to have a look at. Due to some difficulties, things kept getting pushed off on the playable alpha, so instead of making everyone wait even longer, we made a small video for you.

Please keep in mind, Mark and Scott are VERY particular in what they want to show, due to spoilers, but I think you guys are gonna love what you see. The video includes original music from Ken Allen(one of the composers from many Sierra On-Line games). Please remember, nothing in this is final. Everything is considered in alpha state as of right now. Well, what are you waiting on? Have a look!

Video Q&A Revealed For Guns Of Icarus Online Adventure Mode
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Muse Games has unveiled a new video featuring answers to questions about Guns of Icarus Online: Adventure Mode, an upcoming expansion to Guns of Icarus Online. Currently in the midst of a Kickstarter funding campaign, the expansion will take the game’s unique team-based PvP battle system and place it "in a fully realized persistent world, keeping the co-operative elements and expanding the game to include PvE, massive AI-controlled enemy ships, biplanes, missions, player progression, and a dynamic system of towns and player factions that evolves day by day as players actively affect and shape the world."

Adventure Mode has three fundamental pillars, each with its own funding target and each building on the previous goals. These are:
  • AI Director: At the heart of a good PvE experience is a smart, responsive AI that can go toe-to-toe with players and scale up or down on the fly to keep the experience challenging and entertaining. This pillar will enable the creation of co-op and solo missions to complement competitive PvP.
  • Socio-Economic System: Adventure mode will add a world map of towns and trade routes, with six player factions and a fully dynamic resource economy. Missions are generated dynamically to help or hinder the towns and the factions that control them, depending on their circumstances and needs. Completing missions earns status in certain quarters and notoriety in others, enabling players to rise in the ranks of their chosen faction, unlock new opportunities and perks, and exert an even greater influence over the world.
  • World-Building Tools: A robust toolset is necessary to build an expansive world map with diverse and varied environments. This pillar involves the creation of new tools and processes to speed up the development of new maps and locales using a combination of procedural generation and manual composition. While the existing PvP maps have all been assembled painstakingly by hand, worldbuilding on the scale of Adventure Mode will require a whole new way of doing things.

Drawing from classic zombie films such as Dawn of the Dead, the shooter will put the players in the role of a special forces soldier struggling against the hordes in an effort to find a cure.

All this has happened so fast, the day after an important meeting of the Laboratory for Disease Control. London is now in quarantine and nobody can escape from this terror.

The army has been destroyed by the plague, the player is one of the last soldiers fighting this war. The colonel has ordered the soldiers to find the biological data of the plague and take the blood of zombie number 0, the First infected civilian. With his blood the scientists of the Laboratory for Disease Control will be able to make a vaccine against the plague and aid millions of people.
