Ravenlock

Announced at Xbox and Bethesda Showcase 2022, you may remember Ravenlock, which will be available from launch on Game Pass. It’s an action-RPG that also draws inspiration from stories. We join Ravenlok, who finds himself immersed in a strange world after crossing a mirror. A dark world, plagued by corruption. We were promised everything we could expect from the genre: exploration, challenges, bosses, levels to win, adventures. Above all, what we remember is that specific visual style based on “3D pixel art”, the environment is unhealthy but somehow lovely! All in all, we can have a very nice surprise.

Atomic Heart

In the program: Soviet robots with a fully crossed out design which won’t give you any gifts… “Secret experiments have spawned mutant creatures, gigantic machines and powerful shadow robots” we can learn on Steam. “You’re the only one stopping them.” To help you, you have a test of power and an arsenal of weapons, for gameplay reminiscent of Bioshock. In Atomic Heart, every match seems to be a source of surprise, fascination and challenge. Can’t wait to see what it can do.

skate story

In video games, come with the devil, we know. But a skateboarding demon, for us this is the first… But this is the (strange) concept proposed by Skate Story, developed solo by Sam Eng | published by Devolver Digital. The description on Steam couldn’t be clearer: “You are a demon made of glass and suffering in the Underworld. Evil gave you a skateboard and a simple task, ride the moon and swallow it to be free”. Along the way, you’ll meet other tormented souls, but above all, you’ll master your board from A to Z. As seen in the trailer, the figure physics seem to be at the height of realism – arguably as good as Session’s. Then there’s the amazing art direction. In other words, a UFO.

Thirty Lovers

Although on the surface, Thirsty Suitors looks like a colorful and narrative game like any other, it’s actually a real electric battery. Because yes, the Outerloop project, edited by Annapurna, mixes three genres that are – usually – unrelated: fighting, skating and cooking ! You read that right… According to the Steam page, it’s “a game about culture, relationships, family pressure and self-expression” where you play as Jala, a young woman. In the battle stages, you will have to fight “punks, lovers and exes”. As for skateboarding, it seems to be about exploration with challenges, mysteries, other punk. Finally, on the kitchen side, there’s talk of “impressing your mother and mending your relationship” as part of the “action-packed segments.” It obviously remains to be seen how these three genres will mix.

The Plucky Square

Very quickly reminiscent of a certain “RPG Time The Legend of Wright”, The Plucky Squire is based on a simple but very attractive concept: the characters from a storybook (Laïus | his friends) realize that there is another world , across the back. cover Normally, 2D stages over pages give way to 3D exploration, in a child’s room! In all this, the hero must fight the terrible Ragecuite and give his story a “happy ending”… In addition to a absolutely irresistible visual style, Plucky Squire seems to offer different stages in boxing, shoot’em up, archery. Yes, the whole thing was like a breath of fresh air.

Little Devil Inside

We’re wrapping up a project we’ve been hearing about for a while and can’t wait to make happen: Little Devil Inside. Remember, at the end of 2021 on the PlayStation side, we have the right to a good sequence of gameplay, then nothing. As a reminder, the software is presented as a mix of action, adventure, survival, RPG. In the latest trailer, we see imaginary creatures (like a kraken, skeletons) and a adventure that promises to be rather original.
