Double Fine’s Spacebase DF-9 Orbits Steam Early Access

One of Double Fine‘s Amnesia Fortnight 2012 projects, Spacebase DF-9, is being built up into a full-fledged game with the help of  Steam’s Early Access program. Originally available solely to Amnesia Fortnight Humble Bundle contributors or the subsequent digital compilation of the Amnesia Fortnight prototypes, the expanded edition of Spacebase DF-9 is growing to include many more features and additional content.  In command of three beings at the start of the game, players must expand their station while dealing with adversity from the cold depths of outer space.

Early alpha access to Spacebase DF-9 costs $25 for a Steam code, with additional tiers of support offering additional benefits up through a $250 “Extradimensional Entity” pack. This bundle entitles the buyer to the game, soundtrack and original prototype version of the game in addition to digital wallpapers, Steam codes for Psychonauts, Costume Quest, and Stacking. Extradimensional Entities also get their name in the credits and on the base citizen name list along with a high-quality poster and signed art print from the game. Lower tiers receive different combinations of some of these benefits as well.

An official wiki for Spacebase DF-9 covers much of the existing in-game content and lore and will see continuous updates as the game develops and evolves. DF-9 project lead JP LeBreton is a more recent hire by Double Fine, having left 2K Games in 2011 to join the San Francisco developer. LeBreton has worked on the first two BioShock games as well as the recent indie darling Gone Home and the forthcoming Double Fine adventure epic, Broken Age.

Coffee Stain Studios unleashes “A Story About My Uncle” on Steam!

Coffee Stain Studios, creators of the popular Sanctum Series, have teamed up with Gone North Games to bring you a new platforming title in 2014!  Cutting out the violence and explosive action and gore of most of today’s games, ASAMU creates a much more immersive experience by encouraging players to explore their environments and progress the story arc. Using the effects of the juggernaut of an engine that is Unreal, this games promises to satiate ANY and ALL of the players needs for amazing graphics, smooth gameplay, and unmatched responsiveness.

ASAMU is still in development, and so the company is very secretive about just how much of the game it reveals to the public. As of now, they’re telling of a story in which a young boy ventures forth to find his lost uncle, but in true Alice In Wonderland fashion, he stumbles into a world of pure imagination and wonder. Fantasy intertwines with reality to create an environment that only the most creative minds could muster up.

ASAMU is extremely motion-centric, encouraging the player to use the smooth and brisk movement to explore every nook and cranny of its fantastic maps.  A grappling-hook style of movement is going to be your greatest asset as you traverse the landscape like a modern day Spiderman in a world no less whimsical than Narnia itself!

Loadout! release Jan 31st!

“HULK SMASH!”

Good news for anyone looking for an outlet for their anger! “Loadout!” is a game featuring rage-ridden characters with an overabundance of testosterone roaming the map just BEGGING for a face to cave in! You like guns? Good, you’re gonna need that. There are lots of them. Lots and lots of them. And a near limitless amount of combinations, creating a vast array of death all at your disposal!

Got a friend you’re having frequent blows with? Fire up this game and take out your frustration on their skulls with more ways to kill them than most people can even imagine.  And the weapon customization system is so incredibly diverse, that there is basically NO WAY you can’t kill someone in an over-the-top, extremely satisfying fashion!

And don’t go thinking your tank of a character is gonna be a bulky, slow moving bullet shield. This game has a HEAVY focus on mobility. They really want chaos to reign supreme in each and every multiplayer match. Think about it. You could have an army of soldiers, all equipped to the ears with chain guns, rocket launchers, lasers, and grenades.  And now all of those soldiers have 40-yd dash times that would make a Speed-fueled Olympic sprinter blush.

That, my friends, is a recipe for chaos. And a hell of a lot of fun.

Resident Evil 4 HD, yo!

Just recently released to the public’s knowledge, we have word of Resident Evil 4 Ultimate Edition up for grabs on a PC near you!  Resident Evil 4 was one of the first of the series to pull away from the straight on head-munching, Licker-stomping, Nemesis-evading fun that is now known as Resident Evil! This entry introduces “Las Plagas,” a parasite with a serious chip on its shoulder! Soon you don’t get as much of the slow, shambling corpses moving around as you do cold, calculating (fully mobile and armed) villagers just waiting to take a swing at this game’s protagonist, Leon S. Kennedy.

This Ultimate Edition release ups the frame rate to add game play that’s smoother than Yawn’s back! (Suck it, people who haven’t played the original Resident Evil games!) And what better way to enjoy such smooth splendor than add full controller support? YES PLEASE. You can go back to your original controls if you’re still not as comfortable with keyboard control. (You won’t end up staring at the ground while having a chainsaw grinding its way through your clavicle like me.) AND…..wait for it….if you pre-order this game through Steam, you get an 80 page digital art pack AND a full 62 piece soundtrack for the game!

So, if you’re a fan of mowing down(or possibly running away from, and possibly being curb-stomped by) the baddest of creatures this side of Raccoon City, pick this up and immerse yourself in a much welcome retooling of an already awesome game in the hit horror series, Resident Evil.

Now, don’t be a hard dog to keep under the porch, Barry. (And buy this game!)
