Indie game developer XMPT Games and publishing studio Mastertronic are thrilled to #announce fast-paced arena combat #game, #DiscStorm, is coming to Linux, Mac, Windows PC, and PlayStation Vita!

Fast and furious arena-based combat game DiscStorm tests your mettle to the limit as you hurl flying discs that ricochet around the game’s arenas at break-neck speed in your quest to be the finest Disc Master around. Whether you’re lobbing them at an incoming pack of zombies or your best friend’s face, you will need split-second reactions to succeed.

Featuring a wealth of game modes to keep the challenges fresh, DiscStorm is a force to be reckoned with. Choose from classic first-to-ten brawls, tactical games of survival and the dreaded one-hit-kill “Death Disc” mode! Each arena brings its own unique play-style and enemies. Whether it be the laser-shooting Stone Golem in the jungle temple or the lava-spewing Fire Elemental of the volcano lair, exciting new challenges await you at every turn!

Challenge your friends or foes at home or online with intense multiplayer deathmatches and set the leaderboards on fire! Or prove your skills as Disc Master in the single player adventure which will unlock new costumes for the quirky cast of characters, plus diverse environments which come with their own formidable enemies and epic boss fights!

DiscStorm blends ‘90s nostalgia with modern elements. The soundtrack to your battles fuses modern dance trends with retro chiptunes, whilst the artwork blends classic pixel art with high fidelity graphics.

Richard Pilot, Programmer, XMPT Games comments: “DiscStorm began its life as a personal project that I had prototyped one Christmas. The team enjoyed it so much that we decided to approach Mastertronic, who really helped push the game to the next level. It’s been a blast to take it to shows and watch players go through the full spectrum of elation and rage as they battle against their friends! I can’t wait to see what everyone thinks when we release later this year.”

Stuart Morton, Producer, Mastertronic says: “Playing DiscStorm for the first time will have you laughing, crying, swearing and itching for another round. What more could you want from a 4 player battle game? The XMPT Games team have lovingly crafted a frantic arcade arena disc-‘em-up that people will not want to miss come the summer.”

The Binding of Isaac Rebirth coming to Linux, Mac and Windows PC in November

The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth wonderful #roguelike from Edmund McMillen and Florian Himsl’s now has a release date of Novomber 4th for Linux, Mac, and Windows via #Steam. Along the PS4, Vita, on the same date. Just make sure you do not confuse Rebirth with The Binding of Isaac (sans “Rebirth”), which was released in 2011 for Linux, Mac, and Windows.

A sequel of sorts to 2011’s dungeon-crawler RPG The Binding of Isaac, the game will be more crazy and strange than ever before.

“It’ll be awesome to finally give console players a chance to experience the weirdest thing I’ve ever made,” said the game’s designer, Edmund McMillen, whose portfolio includes 2010’s Super Meat Boy.

The game will feature over 500 hours of gameplay, ten playable characters, over a hundred different enemies, two-player coop, and will run at 60fps. More enemies, more playable characters, more gear, more upgrade possibilities, cooperative play, and — according to the press announcement — “rooms FULL OF POOP!” That’s why it’s being treated as a brand new game on the Linux, Mac and Windows PC side. You can find all sorts of info about what sets Rebirth apart from its predecessor in a FAQ on the game’s official website.

Titan Souls brings an intense gameplay and new trailer

Titan Souls developer #AcidNerve released a gameplay trailer for the #action game today, offering a glimpse at its pixelated world and the fearsome titans within.

Our hero has to fend for himself with a bow and a quiver with a single arrow, along with a dodge move for defense. Death is a certainty in Titan Souls; what’s important is to glean some lessons from it.  A single task, defeat 20 bosses and just one hit point.

Titan Souls is set for release in Q1 2015 on Linux, Mac, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita and Windows PC. Check out the official website.

Q*bert Rebooted for Linux, Mac and Windows is making a comeback

Q*bert is coming back this year in Q*bert Rebooted, a new game that will offer the original Q*bert experience in its pixelated #2D form as well as a #3D version with modern #graphics and gameplay.

The multiplatform project is being co-developed by Gonzo Games and Sideline Amusements, who have licensed the Q*bert brand from the owner of the intellectual property, Sony Pictures Entertainment. The original Q*bert was released by Gottlieb in arcades in 1982.

Q*bert Rebooted players will be able to play in two modes, Q*bert Classic and Q*bert Rebooted. The former will consist of the original 2D gameplay on an isometric pyramid of colored cubes. The latter uses a playing field composed of hexagons, as you can see in the screenshot above, and features new playable characters, enemies, power-ups, traps and more.

In addition to the original Q*bert, players will be able to bounce around with Q*zard, Q*bertha, Q*bot, Q*zilla, Q*tee, Q*knight and Q*nicorn in Q*bert Rebooted. They’ll also face new enemies; in addition to Ugg, Wrong Way and Coily, players will have to contend with new monsters like Homer and Uppercut, a sentient boxing glove.

Q*bert Rebooted will launch July 8 on Linux, Mac and Windows for $4.99 through Steam; that version will be playable with a mouse or a controller. After that, Gonzo and Sideline Amusements are planning to bring the game to Android and iOS, and then to Amazon’s Kindle Fire and Barnes and Noble’s Nook. PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita versions are also in the works, but will likely be released after the mobile versions.
