Niveus - A really good adventure horror game

Will you find any monsters?

Ever since i played the very first Alone in the Dark game, i have been obsessed with horror games. Cuz they give me kicks. But as we all know, the horror genre has been dead for quite some time now. Thankfully enough though, more and more horror games has started to show up on the indie scene.

One particular game that caught my eye today. Was/are the free-to-play horror/adventure game "Niveus". Cuz it made me think of a mix of Silent Hill, Alan Wake and Alone in the dark. So if you wanna play a really good horror game.

Then give Niveus a try!

About Niveus:
"A man misteryously vanishes from the woods where he lives in a solitary cabin. An ambitious police officer sets to investigate the case, thinking only of glory. Rumors of monsters lurking in the snow fill the pages of the local newspaper. Will the officer raise in rank, or be forever forgotten from this world?"

Loading Human - The virtual reality adventure

Loading Human works with both the Oculus Rift and Sonys own VR headset (Project Morpheus).

I have wanted to experience "real" and great virtual reality for many, many years. I think my interest for virtual reality sparked when i watched Ghost In the Shell for the very first time. And as we all know. Virtual reality has come a very long (and hard) way since the 90s (Virtual Boy anyone?).

Because now we got both Oculus Rift, and Sonys VR headset. And more and more devolopers has started to take advantage of that VR technology. Like Untold Games for example. Because their virtual reality adventure game "Loading Human" (which runs on the Unreal engine 4 motor), supports both Project Morpheus and the Oculus Rift.

And thanks to Kickstarter, Loading Human was successfully funded on Jun the 5th ($40,000 baby!). Good thing that, because Loading Human are a really impressive adventure game. And it seems like it really takes full advantage of the VR support as well.

So i would really like to give Loading human a try asap!

About Loading Human:
"LOADING HUMAN is virtual reality adventure game set in a thrilling Sci-Fi world. The game world is designed to fulfill all the needs of Virtual Reality gaming, including the use of the Oculus Rift and motion controllers that can simulate the movements of your hands: PICK UP objects, OPEN them or USE them just like you would in real life, Interact with an immersive world where the story unravels itself around you. LOADING HUMAN will be released for Windows and Mac OS."

Elite Dangerous - The big grand slam at E3

elite dangerous
Elite Dangerous = THE most epic space game ever made.

Frontier Developments
sure didn´t fumble with the ball at E3 this year. At least all my expectations were met, pretty much. Because the E3 trailer for their game "Elite Dangerous" really made me drop my jaw to the floor. Let´s just say that those £1,5 million (Kickstarter money) has been well spent.

Because Elite Dangerous both looks and feels great. And guess what? You can get your hands on the premium beta as of today. Well, at least if you got 120 Euro to spend. Me, i´m waiting for the full game to be released instead.


“Elite: Dangerous” is the latest installment of a long series of epic space games, starting with "Elite" - one of the most successful games of the 1980s.

Fight, trade, hunt your way across a giant galaxy of billions of star systems, starting with a basic starship and a few credits. You can make money from trading goods between the many star systems, by destroying pirate ships (and collecting bounty), or even by attacking traders and collecting their cargo (which in turn will get a bounty on your head!).

There will be missions too, and exploration. Most people will do some combination of these things. Upgrade your ship and specialise in one activity - have a trader with a huge cargo bay, or use the space for weapons and maneuverability."

Xenonauts - Now on GOG!

Xenonauts are ALL about turn-based action to the max.

I just found out that Goldhawk Interactive´s turn-based/sci-fi strategy game "Xenonauts". Has landed on GOG. And it´s all yours for $19,99. That´s a really good deal imo. Well, at least if you like games such as X-COM for example.

Because that's obviously one of the biggest inspiration sources for Xenonauts. In other words. If you love X-Com, then you´re going to love Xenonauts! (Because it´s said to be the "spiritual successor" to the 90s  X-Com games).

About Xenonauts:
"Xenonauts is a strategy game in which you control a multi-national military organisation defending a Cold War-era Earth from alien invasion, using small squads of persistent soldiers to eliminate the extraterrestrials and recover their technology in turn-based ground combat.

A detailed strategic layer allows you to co-ordinate the defence of the planet, using your interceptors to shoot down UFOs and researching captured artefacts to learn about your foes and unlock new combat equipment to use on your missions.

Xenonauts is a spiritual successor to the classic X-Com strategy games from the 1990s. We aim to improve the graphics, add new content and streamline the interface whilst still retaining all of the key mechanics of the original games. Devoted fans should love this game, but we're also keen to introduce the joys of old-school grand strategy to a whole new generation of players who might not otherwise experience it!"
