Since every villager has heavily interdependent relationships with the others. So when one person dies, everyone else’s stories changes. Therefore if the blacksmith loses her apprentice, she’ll give you different quests. And if the blacksmith loses her supplier, still different. Then she predeceases both, then those two will respond accordingly, etc. Because the order of deaths is random. The story and quests you receive will be different every time you are gaming.

Therefore to stop the killings you’ll need to enter a puzzle dungeon. So while using tools and your environment to help navigate to the center of the cave before everyone is dead in town. These puzzles are also randomly chosen from a bank of hundreds. So that when you come back to see a new story unfold, you’ll also face a new challenge.

Vidar Features:

  • Explore themes of grief, community, nostalgia, loss
  • Quests, rewards, and story determined by who lives and who dies
  • Town events reflect the state of Vidar, as jobs go untended
  • Four unique puzzle biomes, each with new takes on classic mechanics

Medieval Shopkeeper Simulator on Kickstarter

nedieval shopkeeper simulator on Kickstarter games - linux mac windows pc

Since Medieval Shopkeeper Simulator is a hybrid 2D-3D game. So we are keen to share the #games pixel art and low poly style via #Kickstarter. Hence players will have to craft, sell and create your Merchant Empire. With confirmed support for Linux and Windows via the Unity 3D engine. While now having passed the funding goal of the crowdfunding campaign. Developer Breakfast Studio is looking to expand Medieval Shopkeeper Simulator even further.

What’s the story here?

Since your character is abandoned once more. Without help from anyone. Players are tasked with having to keep their little shop with a few coins and resources. Can you learn to live by your own on this kingdom and turn this shop into a merchant empire?
Ever since the new king came to town, the old ways of life have all disappeared. Hence the church, once the city’s most important place of activity. Now hides many things like never before. While the kingdom seems full of opportunity and light. With a little dedication and effort. Players might just be the one to restore this kingdom to greatness.

The main goals of Medieval Shopkeeper Simulator are simple:

  1. The game is designed with a randomly generated play-through. Hence keeping replayability high and fresh. And since Breakfast Studio favour roguelikes, expect to see such elements.
  2. So player decisions affect everyone (for real!). This it’s not a linear story, players create the story through their actions.
  3. The goal is to create a game that makes you feel like little by little. So players become the most powerful merchant in the whole region. Controlling every trade in the kingdom

So the build system in Medieval Shopkeeper Simulator works by placing Work-Kit’s on the floor. While the players stay near them, they will let you craft specific items. Depending on the Work-Kit type.
For example: With a cooking work-kit, you can make special recipes with food. Wizard work-kit will let you create magic potions and spells. Hence later combining them with swords and make epic weapons.

Yet playars do not have to craft items. Since every morning, a local merchant will come to your store. So players what they need from him, such raw materials, work-kits, epic gear and spells. Therefore Medieval Shopkeeper Simulator can be played in many ways.

Medieval Shopkeeper Simulator is currently on Kickstarter right now. Since the games funding is successful, the crowdfunding campaign will continue via Stretch goals. While the estimated release date for Linux and Windows is late November 2017.

Entropy’s Fall boss fight now on Indiegogo

entropy's fall boss fight now on Indiegogo games and coming DRM-free to Linux

Entropy’s Fall is an 2D action adventure platformer #crowdfunding on Indiegogo. Which is entirely based on a deep, gripping, story and #BossFights. Similarly to Jotun, at least that’s what comes to mind. While the #games development will use Unity 3D for Linux, Mac and Windows PC. And expected to release completely DRM-free in November 2018.

Players take on the roll of Kayos across Linux, Mac and Windows PC. Hence the mysterious entity seeking vengeance against a god. Fighting your way through massive, colossal, mythical warriors. These are known as the ‘Arafa’. Since they hold the key to defeating your target. All while you explore the living planet of ‘Entropy’. So thanks to Indiegogo funding, this will hopefully come to be.

“We are targeting to make a fast pace one on one kind of battle experience. We specifically wanted that the combat should not be on equal terms and therefore the boss fights are going to be difficult to crack. So, the protagonist won’t be all powerful or overpowered and the AI is flexible in response to the players action.” – Sugam Kher (Lead Developer and C0-founder, PSS)

“We don’t want to waste the player’s time through grinding… even if that means that our game will not be long enough.” – Vansh Kher (Co-founder and Developer, PSS)

Entropy’s Fall Features

  • Vivid Visuals!
    When people think ‘Graphics’ 2D games don’t usually come on the top of the list. But with Entropy’s Fall developer Poor Small Studio aims to create a visual atmosphere. Since this will hit the players with awesomeness and slingshots their experience. Entropy’s Fall mixes the feel of comic-like stylized characters. Along with a beautiful digitally painted environment style. The contrast leads to a stunning combo that adds to the gameplay.
  • Gripping Gameplay
    Platformer games are unrealistically accurate in terms of controls. While Entropy’s Fall aims to bring the platforming excitement in a more realistic yet fun approach. Player movement is physics based and animations are smooth and stylish. So players feel the fluidity. Yet the unpredictability of physics gives an added challenge.

Boss fights and Lore:

  • Bigass Bosses!
    Since the core of Entropy’s Fall is the concept of Boss Fights. The game has no minions or grinding elements. Therefore the player’s only enemy is the Arafa (Boss) at the end of the level. While each one is unique, the Arafa have advanced A.I. mechanics. Since that makes the puzzle of defeating them a challenge.
  • Lore and Legend!
    Entropy’s Fall is a game of contrasts. On an emotional level the story is a simple tale of revenge, duty and sacrifice. Yet on a philosophical level the game intends to deliver unparalleled depth. Games, in our view, are the ultimate art form and we wish to leave a long lasting impact on the players through the art of storytelling.

Since Entropy’s Fall caught our attention. The games experience will keep a different focus. Yet available for Linux, Mac and Windows PC. And I like how the release will be DRM-free. Check out the Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign now. Release will be completely DRM-free in November 2018
