Hands On: War Of The Roses

When I play a big multiplayer combat game, I like to stop fighting and look around. I judge a lot of games on what I see at those moments, seeing how the battle feels when I'm not a part of it: In Battlefield, it's thrilling to see jets gracefully curving through the air as tanks blast them from below; In Team Fortress 2, ubered Heavies…

A Thorny Issue: War Of The Roses

Every time I see War of the Roses it appeals to me more. A multiplayer game that features knights killing each other instead of space marines? Yes, that'll do. And that's knights killing knights, by the way, not knights killing space marines, miraculous as such a thing would be. Here is a developer diary that handily features the developer floating in front of in-game footage,…

Behold: First War Of The Roses Footage

We've been a-rambling about War Of The Roses before now, but this is the first chance for the world at large to see the game in action. The Medieval melee combat game is reportedly the most expensive project ever undertaken by Swedish publisher Paradox, and it's also a big deal for its developer Fatshark, who have built the thing from the ground up. It's looking…

Tactical RPG Krater Begins Testing Signup

A top-down RPG with crafting, tactical combat, single player or cooperative squad control, and the possibility of permanent injury or death. That's the early word on Krater, which we've learnt a little more about since first seeing evidence of its existence. Some thoughts on that below, along with a teeny snippet of in-game footage. There are also testing signups ongoing, which you can find out…

First Look: War Of The Roses

Fatshark's medieval melee combat game War Of The Roses is a big deal for their publishers, Paradox. It's the most expensive game the company has ever made, but it is also one of the games that the creative team at the head of the company have always wanted to make. Talking to the company's CEO, Fredrik Wester, it's clear that the idea of a full-blown…

Fatshark Are Making Krater

Swedish devs Fatshark have announced that they are making an action RPG called Krater. The game will arrive at some point in 2012 and is set in a post-apocalyptic world that features, well, a crater. Fatshark explain a little bit about the game, saying that "the base pillars are crafting, exploration and consequence." Exploration, eh? We'll see about that, I suppose. They also claim that…

Kingdoms/Horses: War of the Roses Interview

Following on from our reveal of Paradox's "team-based multiplayer melee combat experience", the medieval horse-and-sword game War Of The Roses, our roving reporter Dan Griliopoulos interviewed the developers at GamesCom; when he wrote this, he was stuck in an open-top car on a motorway somewhere in Italy in 40 degree heat, transcribing furiously and dying of exposure. The interviewees are Martin Wahlund of developer Fatshark…

Paradox’s Project Posted: War Of The Roses

Apparently, Paradox CEO Fred Wester's dream game is set...in Staffordshire, England. Or so you'd think from the very limited CGI trailer we've just been shown at GamesCom, which intones "Staffordshire, 1471" at its beginning and shows a Very Serious armour-clad Lord scowling as his horse climbs through a wood, scowling when he sees a castle under siege, and scowling as he raises his sword and…

Out Today: Hamilton’s Great Adventure

Lead & Gold developer FatShark have their next game coming out on Steam in about three hours. Called Hamilton's Great Adventure, it couldn't have any less to do with their previous output. It's a sort of single-player co-op/local co-op, in which you control adventurer Ernest Hamilton and his parrot friend Sasha, in a series of tile-based puzzles. Although the "tile-based" is nicely presented, giving the…

FatShark Talk Hamilton’s Great Adventure

They behind the indie multiplayer shooter Lead And Gold, and remade classic Bionic Commando: Rearmed, have taken quite a different direction for their next game. Hamilton's Great Adventure is a co-op third-person puzzle/adventure. The announcement intrigued us enough to want to know more, so we threw questions at developers FatShark. Their thoughts on co-op, humour and hats are below.

No Diamonds or Pearls: Lead & Gold

Stop looking at that weird thing I'm doing with my finger and my lip in the video below, and harken to this instead. We last wrote about multiplayer cowboy shooter (a subgenre that must henceforth be known as Multiboy) Lead & Gold in October. Seeing as the rootin', tootin' thing's now mere weeks from release, and that you can currently access the beta if you…

Cowboys And Other Cowboys: Lead & Gold

Lead & Gold, a reds vs blues multiplayer shooter inspired by hoodlum-headshotting antics in the Old West, is looking like it might be a tolerable amount of fun. And I mean that, because the trailer really isn't anything to write home about, although it might make for an unusual missive if you do ever actually write home about anything. ("Dear Mother, today I saw a…

Lead & Gold: Gangs Of The Wild West

Just in case you were wondering, the flurry of announcements we're getting now is thanks to the big European games convention in Cologne, which I believe kicks off on the 19th. We'll see lots of new games from European devs showing off there with their latest wares, including new Swedish development studio Fatshark, who have just announced their first game: a multiplayer cowboy shooter, Lead…
