Second Chance Heroes Launches July 4
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Rocket City Studios has announced a July 4 release for 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.

Mount & Blade: Warband Rides Onto Macs
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

TaleWorlds Entertainment and Paradox Interactive have announced the Steam debut of a Mac beta for its action RPG, Mount & Blade: Warband. The game gives players the chance to assemble their own band of hardened warriors and set out to sieze the throne of Calradia, a land torn asunder by war.

Today we are very pleased to announce that Mount&Blade Warband is extending its supported platforms to OSX and Linux! Currently, this should just be seen as a beta test as there are known (and probably unknown) bugs to be resolved but those of you with OSX or Linux machines can play the game right now on Steam.

To try out the beta on your Linux or Mac computer with Steam just complete the following steps:

  1. Right click "Mount&Blade Warband" in your Steam Library and select "Properties".
  2. In the window that pops up, navigate to the " BETAS" tab and select "Mac/Linux beta" in the dropdown menu.
  3. Install the game and play!
Hopefully you all enjoy the game on its new platforms and let us know if you encounter any bugs! Though it should be functioning pretty well already and is certainly playable.

Note: Napoleonic Wars is not yet supported but will be in the near future.

About the Game
