The Cursed Crusade Demonstrates Ambitions

By Jim Rossignol on January 13th, 2011.


Atlus send word that their forthcoming melee-combat game, The Cursed Crusade, has a new trailer out, and hot damn, it’s looking fine (below). The game features dudes getting stabbed, hacked, and impaled, but in a good way, you understand. Good because this is a violent game about medieval manstabbing which sprawls across Europe through besieged castles and other splendid locales. You play a cursed Templar in the game – there’s a big dollop of supernatural power under his hood – allowing you to enter a powered-up hellvision mode and kill people up with even more enthusiasm, as you can see from about one minute into the trailer.

The game – which is being developed by French dev house Kylotonn – will apparently feature online co-op and will be out this summer. Hmm, I might retroactively add this to the 2011 list, although Kylotonn did make that awful Speedball 2 rehash, so maybe not…

Lost Marbles: Rock Of Ages

By Jim Rossignol on October 18th, 2010.


The next game from Zeno Clash creators Ace Team, which will be coming out on the PC as well as the TV fun extenders in early 2011, is Rock Of Ages. It looks delightfully batshit awesome, as you can see from the most recent trailer, which I’ve totally gone and embedded right below these words. Said trailer shows a selection of things that the rock will smash, as well as some of the special powers you can expect to use. It also reveals more of the fantastic art style from the game’s Renaissance period. (Intriguingly, each level has its own historical art style.) Go take a look. It’s not a bad way to start a week.

A Little More Trine 2 Footage

By Jim Rossignol on October 12th, 2010.


Trine, the comforting bedtime story of a game, is back with its side-scrolling, co-operative physics manipulations. They’re calling it Trine 2. I know! But that’s okay, because it looks just as lovely as the original, and that original was never quite long enough. This second piece in-game footage shows off some of the co-op game that you can play with, y’know, friends. If they’re interested. They’re probably not interested. Bastards.

Ace!: Ace Team Announce Rock Of Ages

By Jim Rossignol on June 18th, 2010.


Also looking awesome this week: the next game from the Chilean team who gave us weirdo biff ‘em up Zeno Clash. It’s called Rock Of Ages and it appears to be a mixture of strategy game and, er, bowling? Two opposing castles attempt to crush each other in surrealistic rock-rolling warfare with defences constructed turn by turn to defend against the heinous stone attack. If that wasn’t enough, Ace Team explain: “your boulder will crash through different periods of classical art, introducing the player to a variety of authentic art styles and music from throughout much of human history.” Response from RPS Hivemind? “Oh Wow.” “VIDEOGAMES! VIDEOGAMES!” “Yay!” Yeah, that’s the stuff. It’s out next year via digi download outlets.

And you are going to want to watch this particular trailer…
