Red Barton and The Sky Pirates is an upcoming 3rd person shooter that hearkens back to the days of OutRun, and AfterBurner, with a story mode a la Star Fox (the N64 classic). The player takes on the role of Red Barton, a pilot of a WWI era fighter airplane fighting his way through waves of enemies, on a mission to save his love and restore his honor.

CES 2017 is officially over, and now it appears developers are back to work, in a big way. One of the announcements today comes from CHANGYOU.COM who released into early access their multi-player online fantasy MMO SLG Castle of Legends. Changyou, a company relatively unknown in the west, is one of China’s biggest gaming powerhouses, and aims to storm the overseas market this year with a slew of new and unique titles.
Released on December 16th, Storycentric Worlds and Unimatrix Productions have given us The Filmmaker. This is the third of their text adventure games that combines elements of interactive fiction, visual novels and gamebooks with a graphic user interface very reminiscent of early 1990’s text adventures. While not a sequel or direct continuation of their previous two games, Lifestream and Shady Brook, the game does provide players of those games little Easter eggs throughout.
Happy Holidays to all. And just so you know, some developers are not resting during these holidays. One is Tap-funs and they have just released their ‘2017 MMORPG game’, Dragon Chronicles, onto the play store. Ironically, still in the year 2016.
Let me start by saying first of all, without a doubt, this has to be the cutest android game of 2016. Secondly, don’t for a second let the cuteness fool you. Because if you do, you will be watching ads until the next morning. This game is deceptively tough. Like any highly addictive drug, it perfectly skirts the line between frustration and “just one more.” Call me a glutton for punishment but i think, at the end of a crazy year, I have just found my new favorite game.
French independent developer Accidental Queens, in collaboration with Plug In Digital, an international publisher and distributor of digital games, announced today that indie title “A Normal Lost Phone”will be available for mobile devices and PC’s next month on January 26th, 2017.
As I mentioned in my original article about Red Barton and the Sky Pirates, we were going to snag an interview with the developers if possible, and we have done that. So, as promised, here is an short interview i was able to secure with Aleksandar Djordjevic, CEO of Schism Worldwide.
If 2016 has taught us anything its that its good to be the bad guy. I was able to spend a couple of hours playing the newest Free to Play Strategy RPG, Super Villains War: Lost Heroes, and I walked away thinking that after more time with the game, developer CJKE could have a hit on their hands. Unfortunately, any good experience I could have possibly had, was marred by an long, drawn out, tutorial which is un-skippable.
Qurius is an interesting title. While still in beta, it offers a new take on the god-like creation games out there. Qurius actually uses your location and GPS systems to translate your actual weather to in game actions. In Qurius, you are tasked with saving a mysterious world from its imminent destruction.
