Second Chance Heroes Launches Soon
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Rocket City Studios has announced it will soon release Second Chance Heroes. The action title gives players the chance to take the role of one of 12 unique warriors cloned from the DNA of famous historical figures like Joan of Arc and Abraham Lincoln, battling hordes of aliens, robots, and undead bent on destroying the world. Players can join forces with up to three other players to smash their enemies.

Second Chance Heroes is a cooperative arcade action game where you collect and play as history's greatest heroes to take on an apocalypse of the absurd! Made weak by over-exposure to kitten videos, reality TV and ironic photos of bacon, the citizens of the modern world are entirely unprepared when the end of the world arrives! Unable to save ourselves from evil robots, nuclear missiles, sentient fast food, alien invasions and hordes of the undead, our only hope lies in the past. Put together a dream team of cloned heroes drawn from throughout human history and use them to push back the apocalyptic tide! Or don't and just let the zombie chickens eat your face.
Check out the site below for more about the game.

Enter The Fray In Tank Battle: East Front
6:00 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Tank Battle: East Front from Hunted Cow Studios Ltd is available now for purchase and download at Mac Game Store. From the developers of Tank Battle: 1944, East Front puts players in command of either the Germans or the Soviets in a series of conflicts on the Russian front in World War II.

Tank Battle: East Front is an exhilarating turn based strategy game from the creators of Tank Battle: 1944 and Ancient Battle: Rome. Use hex based tactical combat to dominate foes on the Russian front of the Second World War. Fight as the Germans or the Soviets in a series of ever more complex missions.

The Eastern front of World War II saw some of the most ferocious fighting, as the Red Army and the Wehrmacht pitted ever more powerful tanks against each other. While the early years of the war saw the Soviets struggle to withstand the German Blitzkrieg, the later stages saw the Red Army counter-attack in great force.

Missions vary from straightforward wipe out the enemy scenarios, to capturing key objectives, to protecting vital supply convoys and constructing bridges to assault the enemy. There are a whole range of objectives to reflect the tactical complexity of warfare on the Eastern Front, and conquer your enemy with over 110 historical units.

Torment: Tides Of Numenera Delayed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

inXile Entertainment recently posted a new update about progress on the upcoming fantasy RPG, Torment: Tides of Numenera. In addition to updates about the game's current status, and a new section on lore, the developers revealed that Torment will not be released until the fourth quarter of 2015.

So, where are we on Torment then? During the last week of our Kickstarter, we had adjusted our target launch date to the first half of 2015. And last December, in Update 27, I mentioned that timeline was still feasible, but that Torment’s schedule remained in flux until all became clear with Wasteland 2. Wasteland 2’s success in Early Access allowed us to spend more time improving it, which also meant we had more time in preproduction on Torment. We’ve had more time to prototype, improve tools, iterate on our processes, etc. before entering full production. This has been a great thing for everything... except for our release date.

Now that we have a more certain roll-off plan for the production team from Wasteland to Torment, we’re better able to predict the shape of our schedule. And, as you may have guessed, the first half of 2015 isn't realistic anymore and we’re looking at the fourth quarter of 2015.

You may wonder how we can extend TTON’s development for a year longer than planned. By running a small core team during the preproduction phase, we have been extremely efficient in developing the foundation and the pipeline for the game – we make decisions more quickly, and we’ll have set a strong vision to help eliminate uncertainty. This will help us make fewer mistakes as the full team ramps up. One year following TTON’s Kickstarter, more than 80% of the development budget remained, so we have a lot of firepower for our production, beta, and finalization phases.
