Doom Warrior Threatens To Deliver Savage Arena Based Combat
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment

Creaky Corpse, developer of the zombie MMO Dead Frontier, has announced Doom Warrior, an arena-based combat title full of "savage barbarians, customisable weapons and armour, and lots of lovely stats to fiddle with." Soon to be in beta testing the final game is planned for release on Windows, Mac, and iOS later this year. As part of the announcement the company also released a Doom Warrior teaser trailer.

Battling against other real-world users around the globe, as well as an array of terrifying boss creatures, victors will be given the ultimate choice: kill or spare their thwarted opponent. Whether you choose to be merciful, or decide to send their head rolling across the battlefield, you’ll find each route has its own unique pros and cons. A bit like in real life.

Doom Warrior’s debut teaser trailer demonstrates the PvP combat of this gladiator-bashing game, which sees players take on the role of savage barbarian warrior, captured from his homeland and forced to fight for the amusement of a paying crowd.

Slaughter your way through an array of vicious opponents while gaining riches, power and glory. Crush your enemies, watch them beg for death and hear the cries of their women!

  • Brutal online arena combat
  • Forge mighty weapons & armour of your own design
  • Randomized loot with billions of potential finds
  • No limit to how powerful you can become
  • Take on gargantuan boss creatures
Creaky Corpse - also known by his human name, Neil Yates - has been making games since the age of 16. His breakthrough hit, Dead Frontier, saw 9 million players battle their way through a zombie apocalypse.

Children Of Liberty Cast Revealed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Lantana Games has announced the cast for Children of Liberty, its upcoming 2D stealth-action platformer arriving via Steam Early Access in Spring 2014 for Mac, Windows, and Linux. Described as a "hand-animated, 3D stealth-action game with a focus on historical accuracy" Children of Liberty will take place on the night before the Battles of Lexington and Concord, giving players the choice of one of four unique characters determined to save their parents and warn the countryside of the pending Redcoat attack.

Children of Liberty’s ensemble includes Ashly Burch (“Borderlands 2,” “Hey Ash Whatcha Playin'?”) as Sarah; Sarah Elmaleh (“Skulls of the Shogun,” “Gone Home”) as Ally, Margaret Gage, and others; Sean Chiplock (“Dust: An Elysian Tail,” “Freedom Planet”) as Doug and William Dawes; and Chris Rando (“Dance Central 3,” “Codename Cygnus”) as Joseph, the Lieutenant, and others. In addition, the game includes Ed Mace (“Heroes of Newerth,” “Tiny Thief”) as Samuel Adams; Chris Ciulla (“Fallout: New Vegas,” “Dissidia 012: Final Fantasy”) as Benjamin Church and others; Cyrus Nemati (“Quest for Infamy”) as Royal Governor Thomas Gage; Billy Nichols (Structure Gaming) as Samuel Prescott; and Geoffrey Campbell (Captain of the New England Patriots Endzone Militia) as Paul Revere.

Children of Liberty is a hand-animated, 3D stealth-action game with a focus on historical accuracy. Taking place the night before the Battles of Lexington and Concord, players choose one of four characters that fit their style of play - sneaky, fast, powerful, or balanced - to uncover the details of a conspiracy that could plunge the Colonies into war.

Lantana Games recorded the voiceover for Children of Liberty in a partnership with Reactive Studios (Codename Cygnus). “The talented team at Reactive Studios helped us bring the characters in Children of Liberty to life, in a way we never could have done alone,” said Dan Silvers, game designer on Children of Liberty. “This cast has surpassed our wildest dreams in terms of everything they brought to the table. We can’t wait for you to hear them in action.”

Ashly Burch plays Sarah Ward, the dark and deadly Colonial Ninja; Sarah Elmaleh plays Ally Baker, a stern caretaker and freerunner; Chris Rando plays Joseph, an athletic, bratty warrior; and Sean Chiplock plays Doug, a burly tank and lovable stutterer. They are joined by Geoffrey Campbell as Paul Revere, a silversmith, messenger, and figurehead of the Patriots; Ed Mace as Samuel Adams, a wise politician and leader of the Sons of Liberty; and Cyrus Nemati as Thomas Gage, the Royal Governor as Massachusetts Bay and an expert swordsman.

To celebrate the cast announcement, Lantana Games has released a behind-the-scenes preview of some of the cast in action. It is watchable on the Lantana Games Youtube Channel.
