Going Underground: Capy’s Below Delayed

Every day for eight weeks you’ve leapt out of bed beaming. “Hello, birds!” you trill to the stump-legged pigeons fighting over a kebab wrapper on your windowsill. “Hello, sky!” you cry to the clouds. “Hello, fork!” you yell, waving at the fork you’ve just trodden on. Nothing can put a dent in your day: it is summer, which means today could be the day Below [official site] comes out.

Mate. I’m sorry, mate. Bad news: Capy have delayed Below and haven’t given a new release window, saying they plan to “take the time that we need to complete Below without compromise”. It’s for the best, mate.

Don’t Starve: Shipwrecked Paddles Out Of Early Access

*checks date*

It’s all just bloody lies, isn’t it? :(

Let’s write about something that happened at the end of yesterday instead. Yesterday is safe. Don’t Starve’s [official site] single-player expansion Don’t Starve: Shipwrecked came out of early access.

I feel like coming out of early access is a symbolic thing, mostly. Like, it’s the games equivalent of a debutante ball. You get a launch trailer and people say your name on websites and you’re a grown up game now. With that in mind, let us watch Don’t Starve: Shipwrecked glide down the fancy staircase in its launch trailer and do whatever else you do at debutante balls. Probably try and choose between dancing with Nate or Dan or Chuck Bass? ANYWAY:

It’s Upon Us: Capy’s Below Coming This Summer

Sword & Sworcery is one of my favourite games ever, and Super Time Force was great fun, so I’m terribly excited for Capy’s next project, the dark and mysterious explore-em-up Below. [official site] Jim Guthrie (Sword & Sworcery, Indie game: The Movie) providing the soundtrack is really just the icing on this delicious cake.

And a new trailer reveals we’re going to be able to taste it this summer. I can already smell its procedural generation and the rotten corpses of Dark-souls-like permadeath. Everyone beat me to all the bad jokes already, so please just follow me below for some more details and a few minutes of gameplay.

Don’t Starve: Shipwrecked On Early Access Next Month

The latest Don’t Starve [official site] expansion, Shipwrecked, will crash headlong into Steam Early Access in December. If you are perhaps fond of not starving and are looking forward to not starving again—maybe while drinking fruity cocktails on a desert island—then you’d better mark your calendar for December 1st.

Don’t Starve: Shipwrecked Expansion Announced

Isn’t it nice when two great developers come together to brutally murder you? Two groups whose work you admire and appreciate sit down with a bottle of brosé and a notepad and ask themselves “How can we really screw you?” Boats, is the answer.

Don’t Starve [official site] developers Klei Entertainment have teamed up with Capy, the gang behind Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP and Super Time Force, for the next expansion to their sandbox survive ’em up. It’s named Shipwrecked, and you can guess how that works out.

Valve Time Force: Super Time Force Now On PC

That guy!

Super Time Force launched on Monday, while we were off enjoying the holiday (I sat in a park in St. Albans in torrential rain with a bottle of wine, because reasons), so have a reminder that it’s out.

The time-twisting shooty platformer’s port from Xbox is fancied-up, as one would hope. Capy Games bunged in a new mode and more levels, renamed it to make a most entertaining acronym, and also teamed up with some other folks who play loose with time, Valve. See, Super Time Force Ultra (what wags!) on Steam also has Zoey from Left 4 Dead and TF2’s Pyro and Saxton Hale.

Bel-oh That’s Lovely! Below’s Gamescom Trailer

That little speck in the middle is your fella, see.

We’ve been pleasantly puzzled by Below since Capy announced it. The game’s beautiful, but what is it? The Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery and Super Time Force folks have spoken vaguely about it being a roguelike-like with plenty of exploration and permadeath–and a game suited for PC–but watching the Gamescom trailer demonstrates an important detail. You can carry a shield and hit things with a sword until they burst. And oh me oh my it’s still gorgeous, with a tremendous sense of scale as a tiny person wanders a big, nasty world. The trailer’s… below.
