The Behemoth’s Game 4 is a turned-based strategy adventure


XBLA veterans The Behemoth teased their fourth game last week, aptly dubbed Game 4 for now, which takes place during the apparent aftermath of a bear hitting a planet. A new playable demo at PAX Prime and the below gameplay trailer, has now revealed the game to be a turn-based co-op adventure featuring a faceless narrator similar to the one featured in last year’s hit Battleblock Theater. Players will find themselves exploring and looting with three unique customizable heroes through a world littered in bear blood and hex grids. Along with a single player campaign, the game will feature two player co-op and an up to four player 2 v 2 mode. Game 4 has no set release date as yet but will be arriving on both Xbox One and Steam.



NeocoreGames bringing tower defense to Xbox One with Deathtrap

Deathtrap for Xbox One

The next project from NeocoreGames, the studio responsible for The Amazing Adventures of Van Helsing, is a tower-defense game called Deathtrap. The developer announced that Deathtrap will offer gamers a mix of action-RPGs and tower-defense game elements when it releases this fall for Xbox One for $19.99.

A trailer released alongside the announcement showcases what Neocore has described as a hodgepodge of blood, guts and cuteness. Deathtrap is set in a chain of islands filled with strongholds that were constructed to protect members of the “everyday world” from the otherworldly beasts of “the void.” Players must take control of a hero of their choosing and have him defend the forts from the encroaching monsters by rebuilding and upgrading archaic, deteriorating traps and machines like those seen in the video above.

There’s also The Escapist, a prison break game from Worms developer Team 17, SuperHot, a time-bending FPS, and Ghost of a Tale, where you explore dungeons as an adorable mouse.

Latest Fenix Rage trailer shows off ‘The Moorsky’

Costa Rican developer Green Lava Studios has released a new trailer for its upcoming 2D platformer, Fenix Rage. In the new vid, main character Fenix can be seeing whirring around the screen avoiding enemies and environmental hazards in his quest to get a cookie, which is the prize awaiting him at the end of each stage. The stages in the new trailer are set in the game’s third area, known as “The Moorsky.”

XBLA Fans was able to go hands-on with Fenix Rage at Pax East 2014 prior to it being announced as an ID@Xbox title. The game played not unlike a version of Super Meat Boy starring Sonic the Hedgehog. Green Lava is promising gamers a “frenetically paced 2D action platformer” that forces them to navigate their way through hundreds of levels featuring dangerous mazes.

Fenix Rage is slated to launch on Xbox One this fall.


1001 Spikes makes the jump to Xbox One June 10

8bits Fanatics’ deathtrap of a platformer, 1001 Spikes, will be releasing for Xbox One on June 10, publisher Nicalis has announced.

The intentionally brutally challenging sidescroller is named for the 1001 lives it allocates to players on their quest to survive the multitude of spikes, pits, enemies and other hazards. The game’s quest sends players after the lost treasures of Ukampa in South America and main character Aban Hawkins’ estranged father Jim Hawkins.

The game originally debuted as Aban Hawkins & the 100 Spikes on the Xbox Live Indie Games store in 2011. 1001 Spikes now features a complete campaign with a story, a world map, multiple playable characters — including some borrowed from other games like Bit.Trip Runner‘s Commander Video — and several multiplayer modes. As the launch trailer above shows, the game’s sights and sounds recall the glory days of 1980s platformers.

1001 Spikes released this past Tuesday for PlayStation 4, PS Vita, Mac, PC, 3DS and Wii U.

Two of the most respected curators of others intellectual property, Zen Studios and Telltale, have come together to bring Telltales’ Game of the Year winning The Walking Dead experience to pinball. Based around the events of Telltales’ Walking Dead Season One, players will have a chance to relive the story of Lee and Clementine in various settings, such as, Clementine’s tree house and the streets of Savannah.  “Zen Studios is a huge admirer of Telltale Games, and we truly cherish the opportunity to work with such amazing visionaries,” said Mel Kirk, Vice President of Publishing at Zen Studios. “Working with Telltale’s The Walking Dead is a hallmark moment as we continue our quest to create the most memorable and authentic pinball experiences.”
