Tequila Works sheds new info on Deadlight

Ever since the reveal of Deadlight, Tequila Works has been quiet on the details but a new interview with 576 KByte Online had some new details to share. The influence for the game came from post-apocalyptic stories like 1984 and authors like Robert Kirkland.

“The 80s have a unique visual appeal, and also marks the beginning of the end of the Cold War. Paranoia and fear defined most of the 80s; add chaos to remove civilization and you will get a world based in distrust and individual survival.”

Our hero, Randall Wayne is a loner who lives in Hope, BC. He hates cities and prefers the isolation of the woods. The hero is very grounded in reality which makes it very relatable. The game is billed as a puzzle platformer similar to Prince of Persia and Another World.

“There’s no inventory or “find the red key” puzzles in Deadlight. Combat is always an option, albeit a poor one. There are more enemies than bullets, and noise is a key mechanic in Deadlight. Randall finds tools and small firearms during the game, but these are more useful as ways of unblocking paths than killing. Don’t expect rocket launchers!”

Deadlight is shaping up to be an interesting title. Look for it this Summer.

Rumor: Shoot Many Robots coming March 14

The release date for Shoot Many Robots still remains a mystery but @lifelower revealed some new tidbits on a community site and a removed marketplace listing. March 14 seems to be the date but it’s been removed from the marketplace. However, it is still currently listed on a Ubisoft@UCI community page. They wrote a post saying “Let’s kill some robots March 14!” so there’s a couple clues to a release date. Is it possible will be shooting a lot of robots the week after I Am Alive? We’ll keep you up to date on anything as it develops.

Skulls of the Shogun coming this fall

The team at Haunted Temple Studios has been working hard on their debut strategy game Skulls of the Shogun. According to an update posted on their Facebook page in response to a fan inquiry the team had hoped the game would be out about now but have been “working with Microsoft to add a couple very cool features we can’t talk about just yet”. In addition to these “very cool features” they’ve been working on a new platform and “polishing every gameplay feature within an inch of its life”.

A “proper announcement” is coming in the next couple of weeks so we shouldn’t have to wait too long to hear about these cool features and maybe even get a solid release date. The fall timeline seems pretty likely since the team says “only an act of God is gonna stop us now”. Hopefully the Mayans won’t interrupt the release either.

New Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD info

A brief Q&A session on the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD Facebook page has offered insight into how authentic the HD remake, which combines elements from Pro Skater and Pro Skater 2, will be.

Though no specifics were provided, Pro Skater HD will feature online play and cost somewhere in the vicinity of $15. You’ll be able to manual ’til your heart’s content but don’t get any grand ideas about walking, spray-painting or performing reverts, which weren’t a staple of Pro Skater prior to the third game and made stringing together combos significantly less demanding. Elsewhere in the Q&A, scant details were provided regarding DLC but the developer said to stay tuned so expect an announcement on that prior to its “mid-summer” release.

Magic: The Gathering – Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013 rated

Tipster @lifelower has once again pulled some great information by scouring the ratings boards. This time up we have a rating for a new iteration of the popular card battle game Magic: The Gathering – Duels of the Planeswalkers, as well as a bit of confirmation from Stainless Games in the way of a jobs post looking for folks with knowledge of Magic: The Gathering. Although it bears the year 2013 in the title, if last year’s M:TG – DotP 2012 is any indication, we’ll be seeing the new game sometime around midsummer. With cars, sports games, and now Magic all pushing our definitions of when the new year begins forward, maybe we’ll skip over the predicted Mayan apocalypse and officially kick off 2013 sometime around September.

New Nexuiz video details the game’s mutators and super weapons

Machinima.com has released a new three minute video of the upcoming arena-style first-person shooter Nexuiz from Illfonic and THQ. The video shows off plenty of fast paced run and gun style gameplay while the narrator explains how the game’s mutators work. In a nut shell, every time you earn a 5-kill streak, capture a flag, or pick up certain power ups on a map, you get several different options to “mutate” your combat style. The video focuses on mutators that grant you bigger and deadlier weapons, but it also mentions several other styles of mutators obtainable in the game which range from team buffs to silly sound effects. There are over 100 of them in the game, so use your imagination! Start planning your strategies and sharpening your skills, Nexuiz will be launching on February 29 as part of Microsoft’s House Party promotion.

Sneak a peek at some Vessel gameplay

The folk over at SlushyTV recently received an early copy of upcoming game Vessel from Strange Loop Games and lucky for us they’ve kindly posted a quick video preview. The game is set in a world where an inventor called Arkwright, has managed to create worker creatures made entirely of liquid. Unfortunately these “Fluros” have gone wild, and they’re screwing up machinery around the world. There are different types of Fluros and each creature will have unique behaviours and abilities that you’ll need to evaluate and manipulate to solve puzzles.

The 2D platform-puzzler is set to be released for PC March 1 with the as yet unannounced release date for XBLA and PSN, expected shortly after.
