IMG Reviews Syberia
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Inside Mac Games' Ted Bade has posted a new review of Syberia from Anuman Interactive and Microïds. The adventure game follows the exploits of Kate Walker, a young New York lawyer whose assignment to sell an automaton factory in Europe leads her on an unexpected journey.

Here's an excerpt:

You play the part of a New York Lawyer named Kate Walker. She has been tasked with going to a remote village in the French Alps to complete the sale of a local toy company to a larger U.S. firm. Kate arrives to find that the owner has passed away, and that she has left a letter revealing that her brother, Hans, thought to have died many years ago, is actually alive. So, she inherits the toy company. Suddenly, a simple mission to sign some papers turns into an adventure to locate a man who has been hiding from friends and family for decades.

Luckily, Hans has kept in touch with his sister over the years, and this has left a somewhat unusual trail for Kate to follow. It all begins with her finding plans for a mechanical train and automaton engineer, designed by this mechanical genius, which will bring her to where he is hiding. She needs only to get the train working, and take a trip to him…. (Of course, it never turns out to be that easy)!

1849 Gets May 8 Release
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 7 comments

SomaSim has announced a May 8 release for 1849. The still in development city management sim is set during the California Gold Rush and gives players the task of building towns, populating them with workers, and coordinating production and trade networks to keep the towns thriving.

The year is 1849, and gold has just been discovered in California. You decide to head out west, to seek fame and wealth in the approaching Gold Rush.

Will you strike gold and become an overnight mining magnate? Or will you build your fortune bit by bit by supplying 49ers with pickaxes and blue jeans?

1849 is a city management game set during the California Gold Rush. Your task is to build towns, populate them with workers, and make sure that they are housed, fed, and entertained. You’ll have to manage and coordinate extensive production and trade networks to make sure your towns thrive.

This Early Access build of 1849 is only available for PC and Mac desktops, but it will be available for iPad and Android tablets at launch.

By purchasing this Early Access version today, here's what you'll get:

  • Access to the current version of the game and to continuous updates. We'll be adding new scenarios, new content and refining gameplay in the coming months leading up to launch. Early Access gets you the updated content as soon as it's available.
  • Input into game as we prepare 1849 for release in May. Tell us what you'd like us to change and what you think would be neat to include.
At launch, 1849 will include:
  • A campaign mode that traces the development of the Gold Rush from mining camps to bustling cities. Each of 20 city scenarios will present players with unique starting conditions, victory goals, and obstacle events.
  • Vivid old west towns with buildings lining the streets directly inspired by California’s Gold Country.
  • Over 50 resources that players can dig up, farm, refine or manufacture as they build complex towns and cities.
  • Scenario replay and open-form sandbox modes.
  • Classic city management simulation tailored and built specifically to be just as enjoyable on a tablet as it is on a PC.
  • Developed by SomaSim, a new studio dedicated to producing deep simulation games for today’s players.
Requirement:
  • Mac OS X 10.8 or later
Note: 1849 is still under development. This means the game will be improved on a regular basis, through updates that add new features, content and bug fixes. Check the features list for info on what is already available and what will be included in the final version.
Early Access to 1849 is available now for $9.99 (USD).
