Inversus is this unique mix of an action-packed arcade shooter and a territorial strategy game. Movement is constrained to either the black or white side of the board and tile colors are flipped by shooting. My paths are your walls and your paths are my walls.
We’re going to kick things off with a game that is quite different to anything you’ve played before. The game is called Party Hard, it was developed by Ukrainian studio Pinokl Games, and I can now reveal that it’s coming to PS4 this spring.
Knights and Bikes takes place on Penfurzy Island, off the coast of Cornwall; a place of medieval legend and modern tourism. Our story starts in 1987 when the island is under threat from a number of forces, ancient and modern, which can only be tackled by the island’s most overlooked heroes: its children.
The maps in Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 received an incredible attention to detail, each sporting great gameplay mechanics, hidden secrets, and easter eggs. From the Great White North, to the time-travel craziness of Seeds of Time, straight to Moon Base Z and more, there’s no shortage of great 24-player environments. After all, where else can you battle an imp-piloted mech in the middle of a sand storm in ancient Egypt as a bounty hunting orange from the future?
Sword Coast Legends is a one-to-four-player RPG set in Dungeon & Dragons’ Forgotten Realms. In Sword Coast Legends, you play as a member of the Burning Dawn — a small adventurers’ guild that has recently fallen on hard times (we’re talking nightmares and murder).
With the ethereal “Hand of Terror,” you take direct control over your fledgling army of worker Snots as you begin to restore your evil dominance. Building out your dungeon, you will gain experience and gather gold, allowing you to enlist more and stronger creatures to do your bidding. Soon, your range of minions will expand to include beer-drinking Orcs, Goblin assassins, and boulder-throwing Trolls.
So what is Sheltered? Well, at its core it’s a post-apocalyptic survival game with some pretty complicated mechanics that we believe bring it snugly into the roguelike arena. In Sheltered you’ll find some familiar mechanics: scavenging for supplies, crafting, building, and maintaining your shelter, but that’s where familiarity ends. Sheltered doesn’t focus on soul survivors, but an average family. Your family.
