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!
