Arcen’s Bionic Dues Is On Steam, But What Is It?

Bionic Dues is "a tactical, turn-based roguelite with mech customization", the story of which is that there's been a robotic uprising in the city, which you must now put down, before your overlords pull the nuke lever. Arcen are really cranking out the games right now, and it certainly sounds like this one might be worth paying attention to, what with the opportunity to "Out-think…

Arcen Anounce Bionic Dues, Do Humble Bundle

Actually they announced it a while back, but I somehow missed it. Today's announcement includes a whole bunch of intriguing information, as well the first in-game screenshots. Chris Park describes the game as a "tactical roguelike" and explains that "you play as one of six characters, and you remotely pilot any combination of four Exos pulled from six classes: Assault, Sniper, Science, Siege, Tank, and…

Skyward Collapse’s Nihon no Mura Expansion

Arcen's strangely beautiful isometric multi-sided god game, Skyward Collapse, is updating to version 2.0, and the same time as launching a Japanese-themed expansion, Nihon no Mura. Arcen explain: "The Japanese enter the fray on Luminith: their faction has a very strong military and a very strange pantheon: their gods are much more aggressive than their Greek and Norse counterparts, and each has three god creatures…

Indie Royale’s Latest Bundle Is All Arcen

The Arclight Bundle over on Indie Royale is a single-studio special from Arcen. That means it includes: AI War, Tidalis, A Valley Without Wind 1 & 2 and Shattered Haven - basically everything other than their latest, Skyward Collapse. They're even throwing in the new AI War expansion, Vengeance of the Machine, which has just gone into beta. The $8 buy-in unlocks soundtracks for all,…

God’s Got Game: Skyward Collapse Trailer

By the time I've finished writing this paragraph, I expect Arcen Games to have written, coded and released 17 games, with additional DLC and ports. They've already released procedurally generated platform RPG A Valley Without Wind 2 and disappointing environmental puzzle game Shattered Haven this year, while turfing out hefty patches in preparation for an AI War expansion pack. And now I'm told turn-based 4x…

Arcen’s Next Game Is Skyward Collapse

Chris Park has revealed that the next game from Arcen (AI War, A Valley Without Wind) will be called Skyward Collapse. So what is it? Well, "it's a turn-based 4x simulation god-game." He explains: "Set high in the sky atop a floating landmass that you are actively constructing as the game progresses, you oversee two warring factions (Greeks and Norse). Via solo play or co-op,…

Top-Down Topiary: Shattered Haven

I saw the screenshots for Arcen's newly-released horror game Shattered Haven and immediately cleared a gap in my schedule to play it. Previously, I was going to spend the time making broth or forcing people to listen to Aphex Twin's early ambient works, but a spot of top-down terror takes precedence over all things. Slight disappointment crept in when I watched the trailer and realised…

Valley-able Information: A Valley Without Wind 2 Out Now

Oh, huh. So remember the part where Arcen Games was making a sequel to A Valley Without Wind, in which I very much hope they managed to add wind this time around? Well, it's out. You can buy it and play it right this very second. Not just one or the other. Both! Unless you purchased the original version of the (perhaps too) tremendously ambitious…

AI War Bundle At 75% Off, Space Charitableness

I usually hesitate to simply post sales news, because that's what LewiePs are for. But in the case of RPS space-strategy favourite AI War I will make an exception. It's 75% off with all the expansions included on Steam. That makes it $4.24 or £2.99 or €4.24, and that's a fine price for such a huge slab of spaceshipular cleverness. A chunk of the money…

Breezy: A Valley Without Wind 2 Alpha Footage

Back in the mists of October we mentioned that procedurally-generated platform-adventure A Valley Without Wind would be getting a sequel, and that it would be free to people who purchased the original game. Now Arcen have begun to reveal a little of what they've been working on for that important follow-up, and you can see that below. There are glimpses of many of the things…

Incoming! AI War: 6.0 And Ancient Shadows

In the dark, distant future, when the universe has suffered heat death, all that will remain will be Arcen Games, stubbornly releasing new patches for their epic space startegy, AI War. The next patch is due tomorrow, it's called 6.0, and as I understand the patch coincides with a new expansion: Ancient Shadows. That's been available in beta for a bit, I think, but tomorrow…

Darkly Devious: AI War Ancient Shadows Expansion

It's fair to say that Arcen fell of the pace a little with A Valley Without Wind, but then AI War was one of the most accomplished debuts any studio could hope for. If A Valley Without Wind had a stumbling gait, AI War was striding along like the coolest cat in town. It doesn't have the nattiest threads and but none of that matters…
