Wasteland 2 Prison Level Screenshots
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

In a recent blog post InXile Entertainment offered some new screenshots from the upcoming Wasteland 2 RPG. A sequel to the classic post-apocalyptic RPG of the 80's, Wasteland 2 will be a top down, turn-based, tactical RPG that the developers promise will "stay true to its roots."

Wasteland 2 is the direct sequel to the first ever post-apocalyptic computer RPG. The original Wasteland was the inspiration for the FALLOUT series of games, and the first RPG to allow players to split parties for tactical considerations, to face players with moral choices, and to make them deal with the consequences of their actions. It was the first to provide far more than the one-key-for-one-lock style of puzzle solving. It was groundbreaking, which is why IGN named it one of the top 25 PC games of all time, Computer Gaming World named it the Adventure Game of the year in 1988, and it was short-listed for inclusion in the Smithsonian Institution’s current “Art of the Computer Game” exhibition.

Wasteland was set in a dangerous, post-apocalyptic world in the American Southwest. Over the course of adventures rangers would receive promotions, acquire new skills and equipment, then face new challenges with outcomes that changed depending on the strategy used to defeat them. The game featured a strong storyline which required painful decisions by players; and a storyline that allowed for maximum re-playability. Wasteland 2, with your participation and insights, will recapture all that and provide more. It'll finally be the game worthy to be a Wasteland sequel, as challenging and rewarding as the original, with all added capacity and dazzle of games today.

Surgeon Simulator 2013 Now Cutting At MGS
6:00 AM | IMG News | 3 comments

Surgeon Simluator 2013 from Bossa Studios Ltd. is now available for download and purchase at Mac Game Store. The over-the-top sim title casts players in the role of Nigel Burke, a would-be surgeon taking life into his own shaky hands.

Surgeon Simulator 2013 is a darkly humorous over-the-top operation sim game where players become Nigel Burke, a would-be surgeon taking life into his own shaky hands, performing life-saving surgical manoeuvres on passive patients.

The original prototype – developed in just 48 hours at the 2013 Global Game Jam in January – challenged players to complete a heart transplant, armed only with an arsenal of clumsy and inappropriate tools and a hand that was diabolically difficult to control, using a combination of keyboard and mouse actions.

The full Mac version comes with additional features, operations and environments. From carrying out terrifying transplants in theatre to surgical procedures in the back of an ambulance, Surgeon Simulator 2013 now takes operating to the next level.

  • Be Nigel! Surgeon Sim now supports the Oculus Rift and Razer Hydra.
  • New achievements to explore and brag about!
  • More operations including double kidney transplant and brain transplant
Requirements:
  • Mac OS X 10.6 or later
  • 1.7 GHz Dual Core Intel Mac
  • 2 GB RAM
  • 700 MB HD Space
  • Important Notes: Requires keyboard. Touchpad supported, but mouse strongly recommended for best play experience.
Surgeon Simulator 2013 is available now for $9.99 (USD).
