Conspiratorial Majestic Nights Out, Demo Available

By Ben Barrett on November 2nd, 2014.

I have fallen and cannot get up.

Alice gave the low-down on conspiracy-focused adventure-RPG Majestic Nights back in July. I liked the look of it for cramming every last UFO-spotting and government crop-dusting rumour into one storyline. Ambitious, yes, but an interesting concept I’d like to see the endgame of. What’s it like navigating a world where these things are obviously true? Now there’s a demo that also serves as a prequel, which you can read my thoughts on below, and a launch trailer for the first episode of the planned six.

Conspiracies Galore: Episodic RPG Majestic Nights

By Alice O'Connor on July 24th, 2014.

In which our hero fails to charm the bouncer.

Conspiracy theories are fanfic for reality, aren’t they? That particular sort which knows how stories should really have gone. They pack history with exciting twists and turns, jazzing up origin stories with alien intervention, adding excitement and danger to even aeroplane vapour trails, splashing in sexy murders all over the place, and revealing that beloved characters are actually lizard people.

They are all, of course, entirely true. Majestic Nights knows this too. It’s a period RPG set during the ’80s, with two playable characters tangled up in the deepest, darkest conspiracies. Though I suspect it’ll ‘conveniently’ leave out the lizard people.

Blowing Hot And Cold: Frozen Hearth

By Jim Rossignol on November 27th, 2012.

Doesn't look that frozen to me.
Epiphany Games send word that their new RTS, Frozen Hearth, has just been released. I have to be honest and say that this is the first I’ve heard of it, but initial eye-lookings and other journalistic data-gathering techniques have given me reason to believe it’s moderately interesting. It offers things such as a co-op campaign, and player-versus-player skirmishes, all set in a rather fetching fantasy world. They explain: “In Frozen Hearth, you will guide the fate of an entire people, known as the Danaan, as they face the greatest threat of all – extinction – as their homelands are ravaged and overrun by a bloodthirsty tide of supernatural ice monsters known as The Shangur, who are driven ever forward by an unstoppable wave of moving ice that covers and drains the life from all it engulfs.” (LAN support, too, which speaks of ages past.) I’ve popped the trailer below for good measure.

Anyone played this? Any thoughts?
