Lookin’ Fine: Trine 2 Trailer

Mushrooms. Fun guys. Sorry.
This looks a bit lovely. Frozenbyte have joined in on the “Let’s put out a new video for Gamescom” party, and have got a lush new trailer with a first proper look at their Trine sequel, which is hopefully due some time next month. Have a good old gaze at this: Read the rest of this entry »

Rock Beats Everything: Rock Of Ages

Atlus have released a trailer (below) for ACE Team’s bonkers rolling destruction puzzle game, Rock Of Ages, which demonstrates, via a tour of gaming history, why rock beats everything. We’d argue that shotgun trumps even that, but we don’t have a video to prove it.

The Cursed Crusade Is A Game

What I don't but no.

Sometimes people make games. And then during the bit where they’re making them, but before they’re finished making them, they release bits of the game in videos for you to look at. The Cursed Crusade is being made and will be done in October. Below there is a bit of it to look at.

The Cursed Crusade Gets Demonic, Dated

It's this damned UV light on my contacts.
Atlus have announced that their medieval melee game, The Cursed Crusade, will be released October 11th, according to Gemetsu. We’ve already seen lots of sword action from this Templar-based manstabber, but now there’s a reveal of the more supernatural elements of the game, as you can see in the fire-and-demon packed trailer, below. There’s some kind of curse involved in this crusade, that’s for certain.

Rock Of Ages Rolls Over Art, Wizards

Ace dev team ACE Team have released a new trailer for their boulder-rolling history-of-art puzzle game, Rock Of Ages, and it shows the ball in action, doing funnies. Previously we saw power ups which embue your happy rolling rock with temporary powers, such as being tough, or being on fire, and there’s some of these here, too. If only life had temporary power ups beyond “mild stimulant drink” and “illegal nose treat”. I want to absorb a glowy thing and be able to double-jump.

The game should arrive this summer.

Cursin’ Co-Op Crusaders Crusadin’ For Christ

You've got something on your face.
The Cursed Crusade has not one but TWO vicious templar thugs for you and a chum to control as you do some fancy crusadin’. What this means is that you can team up for takedowns: one guy locks swords with an enemy while the other puts an axe in his rump, that sort of thing. Kylotonn and Atlus have released a video to demonstrate this, and while it’s actually a video of the split-screen Xbox version of the game, the principles of online co-op on the PC will be much the same. That means dudes getting axed, in a co-operative fashion. I like the cut of it.

A Cursory Glance: New Cursed Crusade Shots

Medieval surgeons would make up for their shortcomings with enthusiasm

Gritty, medieval hack’n’slasher The Cursed Crusade (not to be confused with The First Templar) has some new shots out, and they’re a bit full-on for midday on a Friday. It’s almost enough to put an Englishman off his light lunch of blood sausage or kidney pie. Thoughtless French developers!

The Cursed Crusade Demonstrates Ambitions

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

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.
