Obsidian’s Grounded will enter early access in July

Obsidian Entertainment tonight announced an early access launch date of July 28th for Grounded, their craft-o-survival game about teenagers shrunk down smaller than ants and turned loose in a back garden.

Steam would’ve missed out on many successes if it hadn’t opened up, Valve claim

The Steamlords at Valve have rummaged in their reams of data and emerged with a new blog post talking about what the growth of Steam (and the number of games on Steam) has meant for developers.

Resident Evil 3 remake is out now, partying like it’s 1999

Capcom's shiny new remake of Resident Evil 3 launched this morning, inviting us back to Raccoon City to enjoy the outbreak of zombitis again - now with excellent high-fidelity brands. 1999's game saw the survival horror take on more of an explosion-y action movie vibe and that's amplified in 2020's remake, but it's still pretty trad and relatively rad.

Plunkbat’s fantasy LARP mode is real, and it’s some decent daft fun

Turning the edgy murder enthusiasts of Playerunknown's Battlegrounds into daffy LARPers clad in homemade armour of tinfoil, buckets, and bathrobes sounds like an April Fools' joke, and it was - but the devs did still make it.
