6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 3 comments

Feral Interactive has announced that the fairytale platforming game Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse, the re-imagining of the beloved SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive game of the same name, will be released for Mac on Thursday, July 24th. Players take the role of Mickey as he sets off to save the kidnapped Minnie Mouse from her captor, the evil witch Mizrabel.

“Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse evokes the storybook feel of classic Disney fairytales,” said David Stephen, Managing Director of Feral Interactive. “Everything from the charming environments to the movements of Mickey and his enchanted adversaries harks back to Disney’s rich legacy of animation.”

When Minnie Mouse is kidnapped by the evil witch Mizrabel, it’s up to Mickey to rescue her from Mizrabel’s castle, a magical stronghold where ingeniously challenging levels await the intrepid mouse behind every door. As he ventures deeper into this whimsical world, Mickey discovers that Mizrabel’s powerful illusions make for very real danger.

As Mickey, players will run, jump, swing and swim through a haunted forest, a maze of living books and even a milkshake-flooded candy world as they solve puzzles and confront a series of increasingly tricky tasks and spellbound adversaries in the quest to save Minnie.Brought to life with sparkling graphics inspired by Disney's signature animation style and completely rebuilt from the ground up, Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse recreates the original game’s side-scrolling platform action for new adventurers and veteran heroes alike

Minimum system requirements call for a 1.8GHz Intel Mac with at least 4.0GB RAM, 256MB or better graphics card, and Mac OS 10.8.5 or later. The game requires an Nvidia 600 series, an AMD 4000 series or an Intel 4000 graphics card or better. A Steam account is required to access online multiplayer.

Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse is available now for $14.99 (USD).

After Reset Successfully Kickstarts The Apocalypse
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

An IMG reader recently informed us of a new Kickstarter campaign from Black Cloud Studios. Inspired by classic RPG titles like Fallout, Baldur's Gate, and Planescape Torment, After Reset will drop players into the blasted remains of the United States, more than 100 years after a nuclear apocalypse devastated the land. One element which will distinguish After Reset from earlier post apocalyptic games will be a focus on a more realistic "hard sci-fi" style.

After Reset is based on three pillars of design from the good old days. You can expect:
  • A POST-APOCALYPTIC ATMOSPHERE, developed with a focus on sci-fi realism and more locations to explore than Fallout 1 and 2 combined (for more info, check out our concept arts and screenshots, and watch for updates here on KickStarter).
  • A NONLINEAR STORY, with the freedom to choose between a ton of branches and endings which influence the whole setting - even beyond the game you play.
  • HARDCORE MECHANICS in the best traditions of D&D and SPECIAL, we have created our own system called SACPIC (for more info, check that section of the forum and coming updates), where you will be able to customize every aspect of your character. Of course, you’ll also be able to choose from a list of pre-made ones if you just want to jump in and play!
It’s our future - the golden age of humanity, globalized under the banner of the United Governments. It’s a century of corporations, unbelievable scientific discoveries, and massive overpopulation. That was when we first discovered the strange extraterrestrial objects known as: Artifacts.

No one knows where they came from, or how they got there unnoticed - but none of that mattered after the 12th of May. Those that survived the nuclear fire were blanketed in radioactive ash, forever changing the surface of the Earth - and nearly extinguishing all life.

But… the biblical devastation wrought on that day - was not the end of us. Despite the scale of the tragedy, several million people found refuge in specially equipped underground bases - and over the next century they built an enormous underground metropolis. It is here that the United Government survived.

And so, after more than a hundred years of hiding under the scorched earth, the radioactive wasteland that the Earth had become was finally beginning to heal. It was time. Time to begin the reconstruction of our once great civilization.

Yet, it soon became clear… that the burden of this holy mission had already been taken up by another civilization - one that was born of the flames and chaos of the apocalypse.

Though they lacked the technological marvels that were preserved within the great underground cities of the United Governments, they possessed far greater numbers and better-developed survival instincts. The sudden appearance of the United Governments drove the isolated survivors to unite under the banner of the New Confederacy. Diplomatic efforts… failed. Lines were drawn in the bloodstained sands, each side vying for supremacy over the Yellow Zones.

For the Survivors, it’s a replay of the American Revolutionary War against the British Empire. For the United Governments it’s the Iraq War all over again, threatening to turn into a new Vietnam.

The game takes place 132 years after the apocalypse, which the survivors call the ‘Reset’. Two large areas of North America are still habitable: The Great Desert (Nevada) and The State of Eagle (California).

After Reset was the subject of a previously unsuccessful campaign, but has already mets its new funding goal with quite a bit of time to reach stretch goals before its August 21 conclusion.
