Because not only is Chariot a really beautiful game. It´s also full of interesting characters and environments. And most importantly of all, Chariot is fun to play!
So, welcome to part 1 of Chariot folks =)
I bet that you never thought that you would see something quite like Crazy Monkey Studios 2D side-scrolling action game "Guns Gore and Cannoli". At least i didn't. Because it´s not every day that you get to see a mix of The Godfater, Night of the Living Dead and Metal Slug.
That´s a nice combo indeed. But will it be enough to impress the big crowd? Because Guns Gore and Cannoli needs to collect $30,000 via Kickstarter to happen. Oh well, in 26 days from now we will know for sure if GGC made it or not.
Earlier today i wrote about Frédérick Raynal´s (and Gloomy Wood´s) upcoming 2.5D survival horror game "2Dark". Well, guess what? When i visited the 2.5D homepage i found out that there´s a mobile port (made by DotEmu) of Little Big Adventure for iOS and Android.
In fact, it was released way back in March this year. So i honestly have no idea why i haven't heard about this before? Oh well, better late than never i guess. Anyhow, you can buy the mobile version of LBA1 for $5. And "hopefully", there will be a mobile port of Little Big Adventure 2 as well.
About Little Big Adventure for mobile:
Originally released on PC in 1994, Little Big Adventure (also known as 'Relentless: Twinsen's Adventure') is an action-adventure RPG designed by Frédérick Raynal. 20 years later, a new version of this entertaining video game hit is being released, specially adapted for mobile phones.

As Twinsen, you’ll need to escape from your cell and discover your incredible destiny as a descendant of a long line of magicians in charge of protecting your planet’s secret!

Quadruple Value Offered For Every Pledge Level!
LOS ANGELES, CA – October 20, 2014 - The first, longest running and most successful video game concert tour Video Games Live is proud to announce the launching of its 2nd Kickstarter project to help fund their 4th album entitled VIDEO GAMES LIVE: LEVEL 4. Last year Video Games Live successfully funded LEVEL 3 as it became the 3rd highest grossing Kickstarter album to date. The album was released earlier this year in February on the exact date that was originally planned.
Video Games Live Creator/Executive Producer and 25 year game industry veteran Tommy Tallarico said, “The music industry has changed a lot over the past 13 years since we started Video Games Live, and no record company was willing to take a chance on risking the money needed to create the project to the high quality and standards that it needed to be. The traditional record companies didn’t believe in the concept and they thought we were crazy… but the outpouring of fan support from around the world was incredible and inspirational. We proved to the world that people DO care about video game music and we believe that lightning can strike twice.”
Hoping to continue its success, Video Games Live is once again quadrupling the reward value for every pledge to give back to the supporters as much as possible. “This isn’t about making a profit”, said Tallarico who has never taken a paycheck from Video Games Live over the 13 years since it was created, “this is about continuing to prove to the world how culturally significant and artistic video games have become and to provide the highest possible quality to the fans around the world. We are very transparent in the numbers for the project and have listed a complete budget for everything. I wish more Kickstarter projects would do this.”
There are over 110 different Rewards offered through the LEVEL 4 project as top game composers and developers from around the world band together once again to help create something special for audiences around the world. A complete spreadsheet of Reward Tiers can be found at the following link: www.videogameslive.com/LEVEL4RewardChart.xls
Incorporated in 2002, Video Games Live is the first and most successful video game touring concert in the world having performed almost 300 shows in 35 countries on 5 continents. Over 11,000 people were present for the debut performance at the Hollywood Bowl with the L.A. Philharmonic and since then over 1 million people have experienced the show live.
Video Games Live has released 3 albums worldwide (all of which debuted in the Billboard Top 10) as well as an award winning full length feature DVD/Blu-Ray. In 2010 the show aired nationally on PBS and quickly became one of the top rated PBS Specials of all time. With over 500+ ticket buyer reviews on Ticketmaster.com, Video Games Live boasts a 4.6 (out of 5) rating.
Inducted into the Guinness Book of World Records for the biggest, most successful and longest running game concert in the world, Video Games Live continues to break new ground and thrill audiences worldwide with brand new content each year.
Video Games Live currently has ON SALE over 30 shows taking place over the next 5 months around the world and is about to embark on a 3 week 10 country tour of Europe! You can view the Video Games Live Tour Dates at the following link: http://videogameslive.com/index.php?s=dates
AC Unity is set for a release on the 11th of November in EU (for PC, PS4 and Xbox One).
In case you didn't know it. The French revolution will be reborn in November this year. Because Ubisofts Assassins Creed Unity is just around the cornor now (November 11th), but will AC Unity become the game that the fans want?
Because we all know what happened in the case with Assassin's Creed Liberation HD and Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag - Freedom Cry. So one might ask him/herself. Have Ubisoft learned anything from their past misstakes?
In November we will all know for sure!
About Assassins Creed Unity:
Paris, 1789 – The French Revolution turns a once-magnificent city into a place of terror and chaos. Its cobblestone streets run red with the blood of commoners who dared to rise up against the oppressive aristocracy. As the nation tears itself apart, a young man named Arno will embark on an extraordinary journey to expose the true powers behind the Revolution. His pursuit will throw him into the middle of a ruthless struggle for the fate of a nation, and transform him into a true Master Assassin.
2Dark made me think about a mix of "Cyberdogs", "Silent Hill" and "Alone in the Dark".
It´s been a very long time since i heard anything about Frederick Raynal (he has worked for Infogrames, Adeline Software, Ubisoft and Eidos. To name a few). Some of you may know him, well, at least if you were born in the 80s. Because Frederick is the master mind behind Little Big Adventure 1,2, Alone in the Dark and Toy Commander (Dreamcast).
Frederick are also considered to be the father of the survival horror genre (Alone in the Dark 1 earned him that title). But as i mentioned earlier, not that much have been said about mr Raynal over the years. But that is about to change.
Because last night i found out about mr Raynal ´s new survival horror project "2Dark" (devloped by Gloomy Wood). Which would be a really nice blend of horror, action, adventure and team management. In short, it´s quite an uniq 2D survival horror experience.
So i really, really hope that 2Dark will be able to reach it´s 30,000 Euro goal on Ulule. The odds is in the favour of mr Raynal and his team though. Because 2Dark has already collected 5,700 Euro, and there´s still 32 days left on the Ulule campaign.
So, come on people! Let´s rescue the children in 2Dark ;)
2Dark is a video game from the Survival Horror genre, based on an explosive mix of several gameplays: infiltration, action, adventure and team management. You play as Mr Smith, a profiler, whose goal is to save as many children as possible from the grip of various Serial Killers.
The challenge is huge, as you have to confront each one of these psychopaths, one after another, in their own lairs, find the exit, save and look after the frightened and not exactly orderly children, confront beings who are thirsty for blood, avoid the traps... and through these different levels, you will discover what is truly terrifying the town of Gloomywood!
- The new Survival Horror from Frederick Raynal: a return to the source of the genre, highlighting the psychological tension in the midst of the action!
- A unique gameplay mixing adventure, action, infiltration and looking after children.
- A scenario inspired by clichés from horror movies and cop shows: the children must be rescued from the clutches of Serial Killers!
- Innovative technology mixes 2.5D views and voxel-based characters with a unique animation system.
- Eight levels to play with a shudder... An unrelenting gaming experience, with some serious challenges!
Beauty and the beast (me) xD
I know, i know. It´s been forever since i recorded a new video for Dragonfall: Director's Cut. But have no worries people! I´m back in biz again =) And trust me, i have missed the game just as much as you have.
So it feels really good to record some new gameplay videos for Dragonfall: Director's Cut. So, are you ready for part III folks? You better be! Because it´s now alive and kicking ;)
