Interview with the devs: Heaven’s Hope

Interview with the devs: Heaven’s Hope

„Heaven’s Hope tells the story of the Angel Talorel, who has literally fallen from Heaven. He is now stranded on Earth in the 19th century next to a town called Heaven’s Hope, having lost his halo and his wings. His goal is to now to find a way back home. But our world is strange for an Angel, so Talorel needs advice from his old friends in heaven and from some new and unlikely companions that he will meet on his adventure.

Interview with the Devs: Deliver Us the Moon

Interview with the Devs: Deliver Us the Moon

Deliver Us The Moon is set in the near future where the earth’s resources are nearly depleted. The nations of the world have come together to create the Worldwide Space Agency (WSA). Under the banner of the WSA, astronauts were sent to the moon to conduct research aimed at securing the future of mankind. Sadly, due to bickering between countries, no solution has been agreed upon. Now, with man’s absolute last resources, you, a brave astronaut gone rogue, take the great step to the moon in a do-or-die secret mission to save humanity. Koen Deetman, the game director was nice enough [...]

Seven Days to Learn: Rainbow Six: Siege

Seven Days to Learn: Rainbow Six: Siege

So, there is a new addiction going on in the group … It’s called Rainbow Six: Siege. Seriously, everyone is going a bit crazy, as you can see here, here, and here – and basically everywhere if you have been following us for the last couple of weeks. And of course I was too cheap to get the game on release so I started about six weeks after everyone already familiarized themselves with it. Since you seemed to enjoy the diary style I did a couple of years ago I’ll just take notes about the first seven (spoiler alert: It’s [...]

Ori and the blind Forest

Ori and the blind Forest

I know what you played last Season…. Four people, scattered all over the world, communicating mostly through Skype, four years of development, a ton of „Best of E3 2014“ awards, A ton of “Best of 2015” awards, 14.000 positive reviews on Steam … meet Moon Studios, meet Ori and the Blind Forest, a „Metroivania“-like 2D plattformer game in the spirit of (so the developers) Super Metroid and A Link to the Past. With the pure facts out of the way: Ori and the Blind Forest is a stunningly beautiful, highly emotional and intense experience which yet has to meet its [...]

Interview with the Devs: Dead Synchronicity – Tomorrow Comes Today

Interview with the Devs: Dead Synchronicity – Tomorrow Comes Today

  Dead Synchronicity is an upcoming 2D open-world point-and-click adventure that was successfully funded via Kickstarter, and features a blood-stained story set in a dystopian world full of space-time distortions. It – Wait, what? An open-world, point-and-click-adventure? That’s… that sounds incredible. Let’s ask the developers about it. Quick, to the Interviewmobile! XP4T: So, hi guys, thanks for taking the time to talk to us. Before we get to the most pressing question, would you mind telling us a bit more about the history of your studio and how it came to be? Luis Oliván: Hi, and thank you so much for letting us [...]

Outlasting the Horror

Outlasting the Horror

Darkness. You wait, crouched under some bed you found at the last minute. You hear steps, but cannot make out where they’re coming from as your heartbeat and your breath echo deafeningly loud in your ears. You only know that whoever, whatever, is roaming out there comes closer, comes for you. Your heart beats faster, your breathing distorts to a wailing as fear threatens to overwhelm you. You pull out your camera to peek at your surroundings and in the greenish, unreal view of the night vision feature you see two legs, slowly approaching… Welcome to Mount Massive Asylum. Welcome [...]

DayZ Standalone – Ménage à WTF?!

DayZ Standalone – Ménage à WTF?!

Making friends in DayZ (whether it be the mod or the standlalone) isn’t all that easy! Here’s what happened when I stumbled upon a group… [...]

DayZ Diaries: Day 7

DayZ Diaries: Day 7

Allright, we are finally at it! I am gonna spare you the incredibly boring details of what seemed to be an eternity of getting stuff, carrying around stuff, carrying back other stuff, learning how to set a new plot pole after I died (which is really annoying), trying to build walls that wouldn’t look as if a squirrel on speed placed them (there is one particular corner that really looks messed up) and gonna share what I’ve learned from it instead: Choosing a place not too far from the beach obviously has pros (which is why I did it) and [...]

DayZ Diaries: Day 6

DayZ Diaries: Day 6

As there will be base building pretty soon I split that first part and make it a separate chapter – let’s call it an interlude. So, this is just about me doing my usual thing… So, I went into the game planning for it to be for like an hour or so, just getting some supplies, maybe go crowbar-hunting a bit – nothing too time consuming. Found myself at the airstrip again and being shot by AI. Hmm. Same old. Spawned near Kamyshovo and found a nice working pickup on the way. Uh, thanks, game! Morph flew over me and [...]

DayZ Diaries: Day 5

DayZ Diaries: Day 5

Again I will cover several days in this chapter. From the point where the life as a survivor and the harsh environment starts getting to me to where I become the queen of my very own  hill (yes, pun intended). So, we finally start base building – very, very slow and small… But let’s start at the beginning: After I had my morale completely devastated and was about to rage-quit (mainly because sucking in front of other people isn’t exactly my idea of a fun time – yes, I am a girl, go ahead and mock me!) I went back [...]
