IMG Reviews The Night Of The Rabbit
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Inside Mac Games has posted a new review of Daedalic Entertainment's The Night of the Rabbit. The adventure game centers around the adventures of 12 year old Jerry, a young man who dreams of magic. After traveling to a magical world Jerry and his friends must foil the schemes of an evil wizard.

Here's an excerpt:

The first thing you will notice about this game is the theme music, filled with the twinkling of minor scale wind chimes and an almost haunting melody. This tune lays the foundation for a mysterious world, filled with many wonders, and undertone of dread. During the remainder of the game music is used with excellent effect to create a mood for the many parts to the adventure. Happier music plays during the fun times, with distorted versions once the world turns sour.

Krater Comes To Mac Game Store
6:00 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Fatshark's Krater is now available for download and purchase at Mac Game Store. The top down squad based rpg takes place inside a giant impact crater where the inhabitants live on in the aftermath of a bomb, exploring the endless caves and tunnels beneath for whatever treasures they can find.

Krater: Co-Op is the newest free expansion pack to the real-time squad based dungeon crawling adventure known as Krater. The game combines fast paced combat, tactical squad management, crafting, and questing all seen from a classic RTS perspective.

While the game’s campaign can be played offline, the Co-Op expansion adds the opportunity to tackle hours of specially designed online Co-Op dungeons and bosses. There have also been tweaks/improvements to just about everything else, from game balance to improved loot/item generation to a reworked HUD and smoother graphical performance.

The game brings you far into the future of a post-apocalyptic Sweden. Once home to IKEA, Vikings, and Minecraft, today its primitive inhabitants scavenge the broken overgrown world for technological artefacts.

At the rim of an impact site known as the Krater, three factions vie for control over the wound opening up into the world below. Consisting of an endless series of caves and tunnels filled with old world treasures and perils, the Underside stretches into the depths of the fallen Swedish civilization. You arrive at the Krater with your team of freelancers to take part in the gold rush where people come back rich or don’t come back at all.

Features:

  • Co-Op Adventure - Loot together through hours of specially designed co-op missions. Conquer tough co-op bosses together and bring your spoils back to the main campaign.
  • Unlimited Exploration - No matter how deep you crawl, there is always more to explore in Krater’s open world. Packed full of randomized dungeons and events, more than 60 handcrafted original locations, and 200+ quests. Locations range from small settlements to large urban areas like Solside City, a sprawling regional hub where you’ll find all sorts of NPCs and services.
  • Achievements - Earn over 40 achievements online or offline.
  • Uniquely Persistent Characters - Watch your team of odd personalities evolve as they level up and gain new abilities, stat increases and equipment, but also...
  • Face the Consequences - Your characters must cope with the dangers of Krater - if not they will face the threat of gameplay affecting permanent injuries or even death!
  • Craft Everything - From items, weapons, and gear to the abilities and powers of your characters, you can craft it all with an extensive crafting system.
  • Unique Graphical Style - Krater makes great use of the new Bitsquid engine, which sports great Direct X11 graphical features and lighting effects to create a one of a kind universe full of sun soaked towns & amazing environments, colourful effects, and complicated characters.
  • No mandatory connection to an online service - For those who would rather stay clear of online gaming services and login screens, Krater provides the entire Single-Player campaign in ‘offline’ mode.
Requirements:
  • Mac OS X 10.7.5 or later
  • 2.2 GHz Dual Core Intel Processor
  • 4 GB RAM
  • 1.3 GB HD Space
  • 512 MB VRAM
  • Video:
    • ATI Radeon HD 2600 Pro
    • NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GS
  • Requires Steam and a Steam Account to play
Krater is available now for $3.74 (USD), a 75% discount off the regular price.

Wasteland 2 To Enter Beta Testing In October
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

In a Kickstarter update InXile Entertainment recently offered new information about the company's upcoming post-apocalyptic Wasteland 2 RPG. The new post offers explanation of the company's intention to begin beta testing in October, the month the game was originally planned for release. The update also includes some artwork depicting the Centron Deluxe Model cyborg.

We plan to begin beta testing in October.

You have helped make this game a reality and you will be with us to the end in shaping the final piece through your comments. The best moments in a reactive RPG come during this phase, which provides for touches and details that could have never all been captured in the upfront design. The beta testing will be critical to help us hone in on finalizing a game that can become a classic. And with your help and input we will release the game when it’s ready.

Thanks to this new crowd sourced model of game production we have the luxury of working on a game that won’t be rushed out the door. Under the old process we would often have either retail or a publisher pressuring us to ship a game before we were happy with it. Or the more draconian measure of being sued or having the game handed to another developer to finish, (yes those clauses are fairly common) if we wanted to spend more time polishing our little gem… fortunately we have NONE of this.

Once the beta testing begins in October and once we have enough feedback from testing, we can evaluate where we’re at and set a new release date. By that stage, over ten thousand of our backers will have gotten to play the game with us. In the end, quality comes before everything and fortunately the backers have been in line with us to make sure we get it right.
