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.

Hot on the heels of their video game take on the Fables comic series, The Wolf Among Us, Telltale Games has served up a teaser trailer for the second season of their smash-hit feels-fest The Walking Dead. While lacking much in the way of information, the trailer does serve up enough nostalgia to whet the appetite of series fans and gives a few glimpses into what we can expect.
Season 1’s deuteragonist Clementine appears to be taking a primary role this time around, a few years older and hopefully wiser. The walkers still plague the Earth, quashing her original hopes of normalcy returning anytime soon, and a handful of screenshots at the game’s official site indicate the presence of some new survivors in her life. Everything else about the title remains a mystery, including the The Walking Dead: Season 2’s release date. What is known that is it apparently “Coming Soon” before Christmas 2013 and that it will be available on PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Mac. Full-season pre-orders start at $22.49, your annual savings from the overall model of $4.99 per episode if buying them individually. Pre-orders also qualify for a limited edition DVD shipping after the final episode in the season.
Decisions made in both Season 1 of The Walking Dead and the carryover DLC, The Walking Dead: 400 Days will impact the proceedings of the new season, so keep your save files on hand or get to finishing the older content now to be up to speed! If you haven’t experienced the heart-wrenching feels of the first game, TellTale will be releasing a GOTY edition this November which includes the 4oo Days DLC and other goodies such as the OST and a behind-the-scenes look. The Walking Dead: Game of the Year Edition will be for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC for $29.99
The hype train doesn’t stop for anyone, especially for this month as TellTale is adding it’s own car with the upcoming release of The Wolf Among Us. Today, they released a trailer to hype the series premier of the first episode Faith which will be available for download this Friday on both PC and Xbox Game Store. As per the course, you can grab each episode for $4.99 each or get it all for $14.99 with the Season Pass. The PS3 version will be available next Tuesday while our friends across the pond will have to wait just a bit longer as TellTale hammers out the details with their partners there.
After TellTale’s emotional adventure with Lee and Clementine, their latest adventure delves deep into the world of DC Entertainment’s FABLES. You’ll join a man named Bigby Wolf, or more infamously known as the Big Bad Wolf who lives within regular society along with all the other fairytale creatures. After being exiled to the mean streets of New York by his kind, he is tasked by Snow White to become the sheriff of the hidden community that polices the others. From a chain-smoking member of The Three Little Pigs, to a car-stealing Mr. Toad, players will get to delve deep into the world of fairytales and truly get to know the people behind their tales .

Natsume‘s latest game in their lineup, Ninja Climb, has been released on iOS and along came a few important news regarding other Natsume titles previously available.
Ninja Climb is a game where players take on the role of a band of ninjas and have to build towers by pilling up falling blocks and rotating them into position. The simplistic plot tells the story of ninjas that tried to sneak into a castle so they could get the treasure inside, but on their escape they were trapped in the castle’s moat. The water level begins to rise and the ninjas must build the mentioned towers to get out.
Players will also have to be careful not to trap members of their band while the ninjas climb the towers being erected, as well as not letting them drown in the rising water. The ninjas also have special abilities to help them climb to the top of the tower.
As for the other Natsume game news, Reel Fishing Pocket, another of the company’s latest releases, will be getting an update that features 2 new stages, Waterfall Basin and Sunken Forest, new types of fish (such as the Northern Pike, Silver Arowana, Araipama, Nile Perch) and missions.
