Los Angeles-based game developer Melessthanthree released a combat analysis video. Since this is in support for their #games stylish action-RPG #LUCAH for Linux, Mac and #Windows. Hence the Kickstarter campaign for the game. The video breaks down LUCAH’s rich weave of interconnected systems. While showcasing the potential for player expression and mastery that the game’s combat promises. LUCAH is now in its final week on Kickstarter, has already achieved critical acclaim and has raised most of its funding goal.

LUCAH – Combat Design & Analysis:

While set in a surreal dreamscape of oppressive rituals and torment. LUCAH challenges players to survive the onslaught of nightmare manifestations. Mastering a deep and flashy combat system. So players will utilize customizable Mantras and Familiars to string together devastating combos. While laying waste to Nightmares with a kinetic flurry of beautiful action.

LUCAH’s interconnected world is thick with atmosphere and tension. A unique hand-drawn art style creates a surreal ambiguity. This derives from Silent Hill 2’s use of distance fog. This ambiguity lends the game an emotional potency that digs deep into the player’s mind by inviting them to project their thoughts and insecurities onto the gameworld.

LUCAH Kickstarter Trailer:

LUCAH, now in its last days of the games Kickstarter, seeks funding with a goal of $20,000.  Currently sits near 80% of that goal. So backer rewards include early access, art books, and opportunities to influence the game’s development. LUCAH’s Kickstarter campaign ends on July 9th. Promising a rich story set in foreboding world filled with flashy combat.

Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire Story

Eothas has returned. The god of light and rebirth was thought dead, but he now inhabits the stone titan that sat buried under your keep, Caed Nua, for millennia. Ripping his way out of the ground, he destroyed your stronghold and left you at the brink of death. To save your soul, you must track down the wayward god and demand answers – answers which could throw mortals and the gods themselves into chaos.

Your hunt takes you to the Deadfire Archipelago. Located even farther east than the colonies of the Eastern Reach, Deadfire comprises hundreds of islands spanning thousands of miles – ranging from lush tropics to barren deserts. Many of these lands have never been charted, while others are inhabited by rich native cultures and a new wave of colonial settlers.

The first stretch goal, set for $1.4 million will add two sub-classes per class. Obsidian plans to push out a new update to the Fig campaign today, so keep an eye out for that.

So Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire is an isometric, party-based RPG and in development for Linux, Mac and PC. Still pulling in the pledges on Fig.

System Shock reboot on Kickstarter with fully playable demo on PC


System Shock Launches on Kickstarter

The much #anticipated day has finally arrived! System Shock reboot launched on Kickstarter today with a #goal of $900,000. The breakthrough FPS/RPG hybrid and one of the most influential video games ever produced.
#NightdiveStudios are offering some great rewards to our backers, from Collector’s Edition box sets, original art work, and even the chance to become one of the casualties on board Citadel Station! Reward tiers start as low as $5. Exciting stretch goals await! Cross-platform integration, localization, and even VR implementation once the initial goal is surpassed.

System Shock reboot is a complete remake of the genre defining classic from 1994, rebuilt from the ground up with the Unity Engine.

“OSX and Linux versions will be unlocked when our first stretch goal is reached. We’re open to other platforms in the future.”

Originally released in 1994, System Shock ushered in a new era of action gaming. Combining a compelling storyline with innovative RPG elements, System Shock was a ground-breaking title that would influence numerous other games such as BioShock and DeusEx. Now System Shock reboot is being redone from the ground up for today’s PC and console players.

“This is a full-fledged reboot of a classic game into something new” said Stephen Kick, CEO of Nightdive Studios. “As well as including members of the original team, such as famed concept artist Robb Waters, we have been expanding to include a number of industry veterans with years of AAA development experience having worked on games such as Fallout, Tomb Raider, Skyrim and Wasteland.”



What Has Been Done

Re-imagined enemies, weapons, and locations by original concept artist Robb Waters.

Robb Waters, Concept Artist for both the original and contemporary versions of the game added “When I was first approached by Nightdive, I was excited at the opportunity to revisit my original work. However, it has turned into much more than that. I have been able to completely re-envision the unfortunate occupants of Citadel Station in a way that technology would not permit in 1994.”

Terri Brosius reprises her role as SHODAN and new Voice Overs will be recorded for audio logs.
Brand new musical score composed by Jonathan Peros and immersive environment-based 3D sound design in glorious 7.1 surround, bringing the horror of Citadel Station directly to your ears.

User interface, game mechanics, enemies, and puzzles will be updated to reflect next generation aesthetics and sensibilities while maintaining the look and feel of the original.


Nightdive Studios also offer a fully playable demo version available for everyone on Windows PC. Taking this step to assure fans of the commitment to creating a AAA-quality experience. Available on Steam, GOG and The Humble Store

Now, check out the Kickstarter page and remember Citadel Station!

Yooka-Laylee passes 2.4 million with a Free DLC stretch goal


The crowdfunding campaign for the #spiritual #successor to legendary #BanjoKazooie continues to increase funding. Yooka-Laylee still has 34 days to go and has long surpassed the exceptions of Playtonic Games.

Currently sitting at over £1.5 million ($2.4 million), more than 894 percent of the original funding goal of £175,000 ($275,000). Yooka-Laylee only needed a solid 38 minutes to reach the original target, progressing to $1.5 million in the first 24 hours.


Now developer Playtonic Games released a further stretch goal for Yooka-Laylee. If the campaign hit £2 million ($3.1 million), the studio will release the first DLC pack free to all backers. Playtonic stressed “When – and only when – we’ve finished and shipped the full version of Yooka-Laylee, we’ll start work on additional content that will be distributed to backers free of charge for their platform of choice. And again, all additional funding will of course go towards improving and polishing the game. ”

Should the Yooka-Laylee campaign receive even more support, “Our next stretch goal, if reached, will be used only to further improve and polish Yooka-Laylee, and give something back for your amazing support. Namely, we’ll release our first post-release DLC pack free of charge for all backers. ”

Formerly known as Project Ukulele, Yooka-Laylee is the first game from  Playtonic Games, a new studio formed by several veterans of acclaimed developer Rare. Played in the likes of a “buddy-duo” such as Banjo-Kazooie, but instead of a bear and a bird, the title features a chameleon and a bat. And Yooka-Laylee is due to launch in 2016 for Linux, Mac, Windows PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Wii U.

Secure a copy of Yooka-Laylee by pledging $15 at minimum. Backing at this level gets you a copy of the Linux, Mac or Windows PC version, or pay $22 to get a console copy.

Earlier this week, Playtonic released details of a new character for Yooka-Laylee, a trouser snake named Trowzer.
