Many of you, who have kickstarted projects, have probably either donated or come across a game called Heart & Slash for the PC. Well it turns out that this game was so good that the developers decided to bring the game, in all of it's awesomeness to the consoles. So if you are in possession of an XBox One or a PlayStation 4 (currently only in EU, NA Coming Soon), you should really get over to their marketplace/store and pick up this game. The price is only $19.99, and you know that you're probably going to get more out of it than most $60 games.
Now of course there are probably some of you out there who want to know what makes this game worth getting into, well let me tell you a couple of the highlights you can expect in this game:
- You will be playing the part of a robot who will have access to 75 different weapons as well as 60 different body parts. All of these options mean you have a very good chance at customizing your robot to match your playing style
- There is permadeath, you will find that upon your death you will start again as a newly cloned robot and that the world and items that you found last time are not what will be found this time.
- There's very little downtime so you're going to find yourself constantly fighting through levels that are both brutal and short.
Many board game enthusiasts have probably heard of the board game Agricola, a game in which you and upto five total players will compete against one another to see who is the most talented farmer of them all. You see there is limited resources, land, and more, and it is all in the way that you use your workers that will determine if you will be crushed, or if you will rise to the top.
Now in the version that is coming to iPhones and Android devices it will only be 1 v 1, so a more condensed version of the game is what you're going to get, but have no fear the strategies and plans needed to win in the board game will be needed in this game as well. You can either face off against the CPU or take on real opponents. The beautiful thing is that this game allows for cross-platform play, so you are not stuck only playing against iPhone or Android users, you can pit your skills against them all.
Although there is no set release date the developer is saying this summer, so it could be just around the bend.
Now this is so exciting news, especially for those who have not gotten the chance to play this amazing game on the PC. Now of course for those who might not know this game came to Steam a while ago, and is currently available on Steam for $19.99. Personally I highly recommend that you go get the game on the PC, but if that's not an option then you'll have to wait for the XBOX One and PlayStation 4 release on July 8th. There is going to be a Wii U version and a PS Vita version, but their release dates have been set to later this year, so there's nothing in concrete right now.
This game puts you in the shoes of the character of DEX, a person who doesn't really seem to remember all taht much about their past, but it won't take long before the questions start to pile up and they will be forced to find out what is really going on in this city. You'll get to adventure through different locations, specialize in different skills, and meet a host of characters that will either stand in your way or will be willing to help you further your goals. The only question is are you going to like what waits for you in the end?
So there is a game that simply goes by the name of "prog.1". In this game you are the virus trying to wreck the systems of a new digital world. You will have to be fast, cunning and know how to best avoid the programmers that are trying to stop you. The game is in 2D and will be making its way on to Steam June 23rd.
This game has 48 levels that will test every ounce of skill you possess with different types of platforms causing different issues for you. Now of course for the truly Elite there is a 1 life speed run of all 48 levels. If you need just a little bit more incentive let me just tell you that the game will come out at a discount on Steam for the first two weeks where the developers will only be looking for $5.99 from you. If you decide to wait you will have to pay the $7.99 price tag, but lets be honest this is a steal either way at this price point. So mark your calendars, all of you hardcore platformer extraordinaires, and prepare for the newest challenge in prog.1.
