The Long Dark To Begin Fall 2014
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Hinterland Studio recently announced the successful completion of a Kickstarter campaign to fund The Long Dark. The studio managed to surpass its $200,000 (CAN) goal to raise a final total of $256,217 (CAN). The game will feature a storyline set in a post apocalyptic future in which players must struggle to survive the aftermath of a geomagnetic storm responsible for the destruction of North America's technology infrastructure.

"We're thrilled by the overwhelming support we've received from fans, backers, and press over the 30 days of our Kickstarter campaign," said Hinterland founder and creative director Raphael van Lierop in a statement.

"We couldn't be happier. We have nearly 7,000 incredible supporters at the heart of a growing Hinterland community. It's been an intense time, and the team deserves a rest, but we're ready to get back to working on the game. Expectations and anticipation couldn't be higher. We're focused and determined to create something that lives up to those expectations."

The Long Dark is a first-person post-disaster survival simulation, set in the aftermath of a geomagnetic super storm that has destroyed North America’s technology infrastructure. In the first season of this episodic series, players experience this grim new reality through the eyes of bush pilot William Mackenzie, isolated with other survivors in the Northern wilderness as a result of the event. Gameplay emphasizes exploration to gather resources and knowledge about the world, while mastering a deep survival simulation to overcome the myriad natural and man-made hazards of the new frontier. Players will also face difficult moral choices that will affect the outcome of gameplay, story, and ultimately, the course of humanity’s recovery.

Hinterland estimates The Long Dark will ship in Fall 2014.

Pre-Order Goodbye Deponia
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Daedalic Entertainment's Goodbye Deponia is now available for pre-order at Mac Game Store. The third and final installment in the award winning Deponia adventure series focuses on hapless anti-hero Rufus and his unwavering quest to leave the junk planet of Deponia behind for the lofty heights of Elysium city.

More chaos, more destruction, more Rufus. Not one, not two, but three Rufuses cause all kinds of crazy mayhem in the long-awaited point & click adventure comedy Goodbye Deponia: The Organon plans the destruction of Deponia, the lovely Goal has (once again) disappeared and anti-hero Rufus just can't seem to stop getting in his own way.

All inventor and free spirit Rufus wanted to do was to get off the junkyard planet of Deponia and move to Elysium, the paradise orbiting Deponia as a spaceship reserved only for the highest echelons of society. Goal, the ex-Elysian girl that Rufus has fallen head over heels for, still seems to be the key to his endeavor ... and to the elevator that will get him to space. Finally, Rufus has come up with a seemingly perfect plan.

And yet, everything that could possibly go wrong suddenly does go wrong. Rufus finds himself (initially in disguise) on a highway cruiser amongst stern-faced officials of the Organon, while Goal goes missing. When Rufus stumbles upon a cloning machine, he believes to have found his way out. A clone copy is supposed to help him out of his predicament. But an "inexplicable" error causes complications and Goal slips from our hero's reach once again. Now, he has to solve three major problems: He needs to find Goal again, reach Elysium and prevent the destruction of the entire planet of Deponia by the hand of the Organon.

Three problems that only three Rufuses could solve – and thus, the luckless inventor decides to clone himself! This leads to crazy ramifications for the player: In Goodbye Deponia, the player occasionally needs to control all three Rufuses, using them to complete tasks together – despite Rufus stumbling over himself so often.

Goodbye Deponia is the epic conclusion to the Deponia trilogy and sequel to the best German game of 2013 (German Computer Game Awards).
The award-winning Deponia series comprises of three wacky tales of adventure from the junkyard planet Deponia. These classic point & click romps not only delight comedy fans and adventure veterans, but also newcomers to the genre. The humorous Deponia series impresses with beautiful, hand-drawn 2D comic graphics, sarcastic dialogues and plenty of black humor. It has received numerous press awards, among them the German Computer Game Award (Deutscher Computerspielpreis) and many other German developer awards.

Features:

  • A classic point & click adventure in a unique world, in the tradition of Douglas Adams, Terry Pratchett and Matt Groening
  • From the makers of Memoria, Edna & Harvey: The Breakout, A New Beginning and Edna & Harvey: Harvey's New Eyes
  • An epic conclusion to the iconic Deponia series
  • Unique comic style with hand-drawn HD 2D graphics
  • Cutscenes set to music with lovingly realized animations
Goodbye Deponia is available to pre-order now for $19.99 (USD).

Play Knock-Knock At MGS
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 5 comments

Knock-Knock from Ice-Pick Lodge is now available for purchase and download at Mac Game Store. The unique adventure title challenges player to separate nightmare from reality as they struggle each night to keep the Lodger awake and sane until dawn.

There is an unusual cabin deep in the woods. It had served as a laboratory and a dwelling for three generations of Lodgers.

But as of late the latest Lodger has been noticing weird changes in familiar surroundings; things are missing, noises and rattle heard. Something odd is coming out of the woods. Come night, it seems like someone's made himself at home in the twilight of rooms, attics, and cellars.

You need to stay awake and sane till dawn.

The Lodger is wandering the rooms, evading the unknown, counting minutes till morning. But it's only in the night that he can solve the main puzzle and find the answers. What's going on? Are the Guests real, or are they just figments of his insomniac imagination? What'd happened to the forest? What's happening to the cabin? Is there a line between reality and imagination?

  • Hide! Play hide-and-seek with denizens of your nightmares.
  • Don't look now! The goal of each night is to reach dawn while still sane.
  • Fill in the gaps. The house aids the Lodger. You only have to fix it up and keep it in order.
  • Seek. The Lodger has lost something very important. The reason for what is happening is somewhere inside. Everything that is happening can be explained, you only need to find the key and bring it to light.
  • Wait. In this game you need to watch and listen carefully. Inspect and scrutinize. You only have to last until the sunrise.
  • Follow the rules of the game! Of course you must first understand the game being played with you.
Requirements:
  • Mac OS X 10.5.8 or later
  • Intel Mac
Knock-Knock is available now for $9.99 (USD).
