Wasteland 2 Demo Footage Revealed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

In a recent blog post InXile Entertainment offered a new video from the upcoming Wasteland 2 RPG. The footage features 18 minutes of gameplay from the prison demo level. 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."

This area was not built purely for demoing purposes and it is a straight video capture. While the level will be further polished and improved (we’re missing a bunch of sounds among other things), it gives you a sense of the final game flow. The level was the winner of an internal competition process (as mentioned last update). This is only a tiny fraction of the game which is very hard to show in a 20 minute update. It represents about 1/3rd of the prison map and isn’t even one of the larger levels, so you can imagine it can be tricky for us to share enough without too many spoilers or overwhelming you.

Another particular focus of the video is showing the game’s progression, which highlights the back-and-forth communication with you, our backers. From the renaming of the characteristics into the CLASSIC acronym to our multiple iterations on the UI based on very direct but very useful feedback from our fans (and it is still customizable to your tastes, for example you can configure the text window depending on how much you want it to show).

Journey Of A Roach Screenshots Unveiled
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Daedalic Entertainment and Koboldgames have released some new screenshots from the upcoming Journey of a Roach. Planned for a November release the 2D adventure game drops players into a post-apocalyptic world where they guide Roach Jim and his sidekick Bud from a deserted vault to the Earth's surface. Since the protagonists are roaches the game will have no written or spoken dialog, but will offer a variety of classic point & click puzzles to overcome.

Cockroaches do survive everything, even a nuclear war: This is what story and gameplay of Daedalic Entertainment’s upcoming 3D adventure game Journey of a Roach are about.

Journey of a Roach, developed by the Swiss team of Koboldgames, in co-operation with Daedalic Entertainment, takes players to a sarcastic, post-apocalyptic world: Roach Jim and his sidekick Bud are out and about to find their way from a deserted vault to the Earth’s surface. Players steer them through classic point & click adventure game puzzles. Certain challenges can be overcome by using the roache’s natural features, though: Being roaches, Jim and Bud have the ability to crawl up walls and on ceilings, as well as on items. Players use the third-insect-perspective to guide Jim and Bud through the 3D comic world. There will be no written or spoken dialogues in Journey of a Roach, by the way, as the insects are using their very own, easily understandable signal language.

Koboldgames and Daedalic Entertainment scheduled Journey of a Roach for release in November 2013, for PC and Mac.

Tex Murphy: Tesla Effect Coming Next Year
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment

Big Finish Games has announced a partnership with ATLUS to publish Tex Murphy: Tesla Effect early next year. The game is the first installment in the Tex Murphy adventure game series since it was brought back to life in a successful Kickstarter campaign. Players will take the role of the private investigator in a post-apocalyptic San Francisco, once again searching for clues, solving puzzles, and investigating crimes.

"The Tex Murphy franchise is definitely much beloved around the ATLUS office; a lot of us were playing Tex games before we started our careers in the games industry," said Bill Alexander, vice president of production and business development. "ATLUS has a great penchant for stepping in to help developers bring their incredible games to market, and we are eager to breathe new life into this classic franchise. We hope that it will bring back fond memories for Tex Murphy fans as well as introduce a new generation of gamers to his one-of-a-kind humor."

Tesla Effect begins with Tex Murphy—the down-on-his-luck gumshoe in the post-apocalyptic future—regaining consciousness on the fire escape next to his office with a gaping head wound and an injection mark on his arm. With the last seven years of his life wiped from memory, the private eye has no choice but to figure who was behind the mysterious attack and why.

"The success of the Tex Murphy Kickstarter proved to us that fans were still out in the world, craving the nostalgic adventure gaming the series is known for," said Ryan Jones, Business Development, Big Finish Games. "By partnering with ATLUS, we're going to bring the magic of Tex to a global audience in a big way. Their continued support will help us deliver the most exciting Tex Murphy adventure yet."
