30/30 Announces Plans For A Cosmochoria Kickstarter Campaign

Help a naked cosmonaut strapped to a jetpack plant seeds to breathe life into a procedurally generated universe while confronting epic alien boss battles in 30/30’s uniquely stylized inaugural release, “Cosmochoria”.  With a Kickstarter campaign launching the first week of April, featuring reward incentives like DRM-Free copies of the game & soundtrack, limited edition poster prints, t-shirts, hand-made plush toys of the Cosmochoria hero and actual trees planted via the Earth Day Network—30/30 hopes to fund the final stages of Cosmochoria’s development.

Intent on capturing the beauty and loneliness of space, Cosmochoria’s art boldly contrasts a child’s imagination with the cruel tranquility of the vacuum of space. The gameplay stems from an unwavering dedication to an era of simple game design, escalating challenges, gratifying upgrades and high-score competition.  An original and ambient / electronic soundtrack accompanies sparse moments of peaceful exploration.  Produced by a collaboration between Ilkae & Zebra, whose experimental sound has long been influenced by classic video games , and Mantrakid, the musical alter-ego of Nate Schmold, creator and illustrator behind Cosmochoria.

30/30 is the culmination of Nate’s creative ventures, each of which has strived to make the world a weirder place.  Cosmochoria, currently in alpha development, is the next mutation of in Nate’s evolution of delivering creative and immersive entertainment experiences. Back its upcoming Kickstarter this April and solidify indie game development as the future of the industry.

Here’s what Cosmochoria’s audience have to say about the current Alpha release, playable today at cosmochoria.com:
Indie Games: “It’s a blend of the two genres, combining elements of both with colorful imagery and atmospheric background music to create something fresh.”
IndieStatik: “ One of the most enjoyable portions of the game is simply the relaxing nature of loneliness.”
Hardcore Gamer: “There is no part of this game that doesn’t sound completely awesome.”

The Masterplan – Artwork & Press Release

San Francisco and Helsinki, March 10th – Shark Punch announces it’s working on a game about “the greatest heist in the history of mankind”

Shark Punch is a transatlantic independent game development studio with deep roots in the Helsinki game development scene. The founding team has been working together since 2010, most recently at Disney Interactive.

The company strives to combine the deep gameplay of classic 90s game titles with a modern player experience.

“We were talking about how we’d all recently played this or that 90s game that we had such great memories about, and how crappy the experience turned out to be in reality. That’s when it hit us,” says Jiri Kupiainen, Founder and CEO, continuing: “instead of talking about how those games could be made better, we should be doing something about it.”

The team is now working on their first title, The Masterplan - a game about “the greatest heist in the history of mankind.” Drawing inspiration from both legendary tactical turn-based games and classic heist movies alike, the goal of the game is to put together the right crew, get the right equipment, and finally plan and execute the biggest heist ever.

Set in the early 1970s, the game features beautiful hand-drawn 2D art and an authentic soundtrack recorded by a real band. The gameplay blends a physics-based world and a clever AI system with a easy to approach “real time with pause” user interface.

The whole team will be present at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco in mid- March, showing the game at GDC Play booth 204. The game is slated for release on PC, Mac and Linux sometime in 2014.

Blackpowder Games’ Betrayer Scheduled To Release In Europe On March 24th

“Since shipping FEAR almost 10 years ago, we’ve been wanting to create a player-driven game that emphasizes exploration and discovery with minimal hand-holding,” says the game’s designer and writer, Craig Hubbard. “We’re ecstatic to finally get the chance.”

Betrayer is an eerie first person action/adventure title in which players traverse a mysteriously abandoned New World colony in 1604, trying to piece together what happened to its inhabitants and survive the supernatural threats they encounter along the way.

“Ultimately, what we’re proudest of is that Betrayer is distinctive. When you’re setting out to create a first person action game with seven people, the biggest fear is that you’ll make something redundant: a cheap version of a bigger, better title. But I feel confident saying you haven’t played anything quite like this.”

Direct Link

The German indie developer The Games Foundation has successfully launched the open beta for their mobile MMOG HYPERION ONLINE. Designed specifically for tablets and smartphones, the free-to-play MMOG set in outer space is available on Google Play and is looking for brave space commanders to explore the galaxy in pursuit of fame and fortune. Versions for iOS, Windows Phone and other platforms will follow shortly. Check out the official teaser trailer here: http://youtu.be/qCL5a_otSas

In the role of a renegade starship captain, players take the helm of a mighty starship, venture forth into the depths of outer space, and discover countless star systems and planets. Asteroids floating in space can be mined for valuable mineral ore, which can be traded with other players. When visiting starbases, players can spend the ore to upgrade the weapons, armor plating, repair devices and engine boosters of their starship, or even have an entirely new starship manufactured for them from scratch. In addition, crew members can be recruited and trained at those starbases to improve their combat skills and defend your ship against space pirates that try to steal the valuable mineral ores.

Players can also take on missions or attack other starship captains in action-packed space combat until they explode in a burst of nuclear fire. Hunt other players for bounty points, rise to the top of the leaderboard, and become the most feared starship pilot in the universe! In the course of the game, players can also join forces with friends and go bounty-hunting together. Player clans can conquer entire star systems to gain control over the ore deposits, and charge concession fees from other players for ores mined in these sectors. A large-scale war for dominance over the galactic sectors thus unfolds.

Features:

- Free-to-play SciFi MMOG for mobile devices
- Play simultaneously with thousands of players
- Vast selection of different starships and starship upgrades
- Beautiful 3D graphics
- Over 16 different galactic sectors to explore
- Exciting real-time combat, PVE and PVP
- Bounty point system and leaderboards
- Player-driven trade system
- Fully persistent game world
