Afterfall: Reconquest – Teaser Trailer & Press Release

Direct Link

Afterfall: Reconquest

You’re stepping into a world after the outbreak of war. A war in which nuclear warheads weren’t the ultimate means of destruction, rather a stage in a self-made apocalypse. A new weapon was used. Nobody heard about the Entropy charges before the Day Zero and a few remained to tell the story after.

Only two groups of people managed to survive the apocalyptic conflict. The first consisted of the lucky ones who found shelter in one of the ‘sanctuary cities’ hidden deep in the mountains. Their luck, however, was the first resource to run out. Soon it became obvious that these havens weren’t self-sufficient. After a few years the resources started to deplete and when they finally ran dry, worn out and embittered survivors once again were forced to find a new place to call home.

Today, former inhabitants of the sanctuary cities descended into the valleys in search of fertile soil, clean water and resources to process into fuel and tools. Thus begins the RECONQUEST – slow and ardous process of taking the land back from mutants and wildlife and rebuilding the lost cities and civilization.

As for the second group… their fate remains a mystery.

Your mission

You’re one of the surviving members of the Corvin family. Your task is to find out what caused the annihilation of your family and execute vengeance upon the guilty.

Every night you’re haunted by nightmares. They’re somehow connected to the childhood. The problem is that you’re not really sure whether it is your childhood that you’re dreaming about.

The path you’ve taken is not an easy one. Along the way you’ll come to realize that there are powers at work in this barren world that don’t want you to know the truth.

Despite your neutrality, more than once you’ll find yourself entangled in intrigues. You will reveal many mysteries of the post-apocalyptic world. Maybe you’ll even discover the secrets of mythical ‘Pearl of Wastelands’, the image of which looms large in everyone’s mind.

Info

Afterfall: Reconquest is a tale that will be spun in the form of periodically released episodes in which the player will be able to affect the fate of many characters and reveal the greatest secret of the post-apocalyptic world.

Reconquest will be released in the digital form on Steam. We don’t exclude the possibility of the game appearing on different platforms.

The current World Record for a Video Game Marathon is currently held by Australian Okan Kaya who amassed an impressive 135 hours 15 minutes and 10 seconds playing Black Ops 2, however, Wewana:Play the innovative Birmingham UK based gaming company is aiming to smash that record completely.

CEO, Deepak Pathak: “I’ve always been inspired by Richard Branson’s ideal to break the boundaries of what can be achieved, especially with all his world record attempts. We have a huge audience of gamers who use our smartphone app, Wewana:Play to schedule their game times, so I looked into records I thought our audience can smash and suddenly this record became our goal”

Wewana:Play will host the entire attempt at their offices in Birmingham UK, providing food, support (before and during the event) and the monitoring needed to become an official record attempt. The entire event is being supported by major live-streamers and major brands that will also be involved in motivating the contestants.

“This will be such a cool event to watch unfold. We will be having surprise guests and events on the hour, every hour of the entire challenge to help keep our challengers motivated and to also make it a really entertaining extravaganza.”

Wewana:Play will begin the attempt on 13th April and has an open call for contestants from which four potential record breakers will be chosen.

The record allows for 10 minutes of non-gaming time for every hour of play, with the ability to combine breaks over a longer period to allow for sleep.

Swords & Some Magic – Screenshots, Trailer, & Press Release

Direct Link

Holy Warp and Black Wing Foundation announce Swords & Some Magic: a barbarian fantasy action game that combines elements from both traditional platformers and contemporary runners.

The player is trying to reach the top floor of the Dark Tower, so the game is split into floors – levels – which serve as milestones of the journey. Currently we plan 36 intense levels in 6 different environments. The number of levels may be increased later after the initial mobile release.

Swords & Some Magic features a diverse gameplay, a unique way of “line switching” when the camera changes positions and engages player into QTE sequences, giant bosses and stunning Unreal Engine-powered graphics.

Coming soon to iOS devices. Android, PC and PS Vita versions are planned.
