Keep On Action-Trucking: Space Run Galaxy Announced

Back in 2014, building up a spaceship to run cargo in Space Run [official site] renewed Adam’s interest in tower defense games. Space Run gives players a big space-truck to haul everything from plain old cargo containers to thrill-seeking tourists, and naturally they must build up the truckship with weapons and defenses if they want to complete the delivery in time – and survive. Now developers Passtech Games have announced a sequel, named Space Run Galaxy, which is due to launch later this year.

Death Is Strange: First Screens Of Dontnod’s Vampyr

When I first caught wind of Vampyr [official site], an action-RPG set in the Spanish Flu-ravaged streets of early 20th century London, I was quite excited. When I discovered Remember Me and Life Is Strange developers Dontnod Entertainment had their name on it, I was really quite excited. We haven’t seen the game in motion yet, but we can today have a look at its style in the first set of screenshots. They’re a bit, um…. on the bland side? Come see for yourself.

The Call Of Cthulhu Sounding in 2017

Iä! Iä! I, ah, I told him “That’s no Deep One, that’s my wife!” Oh, you should’ve seen his face! For strange aeons afterwards, he couldn’t look me in the myriads of temporary eyes forming and un-forming as pustules of greenish light all over my front! Anyway, where were we – the Call of Cthulhu [official site] game?

We’d not heard much from the game since its announcement in 2014, and even then we knew little about it. Surprise! Here come new screenshots, details, and word that Call of Cthulhu is due out in 2017. Expect stealthy investigation.

The Moos (The News): Farming Simulator 17 Announced

Will we, in years to come, be asking “How would you revamp Farming Simulator?” Will we wonder if it’s time Farming Simulator took a few years off from annual sequels to rethink what about virtual farming excited people so? Will we dream of an Ancient Egyptian reboot, tilling the soils of the Nile Delta? Or will you, wide-eyed, propose a slaughterhouse with PhysX Flex blood and a knife-sharpening minigame? Do you want a wee organic farm with no machinery, just a workforce of gapyearers?

I ask because developers Giants Software have announced Farming Simulator 17 [official site], coming “at the end of 2016.”

Heretics! Battlefleet Gothic: Armada Shows Off Chaos

There is something pleasing about watching a mile-long spacecathedral circling in broadside combat with a mile-long, meat-covered spacecathedral dedicated to ruinous powers. Something to do with pretty space backgrounds, nice giant spacecathedrals, colourful zapbeams, and the very idea of heavily-armed shards of meat, bone, and teeth. I’m less sure about the ship with a big silly red demon heads on top, though. Maybe that’s what Red Nose Day will look like in 38 thousands years.

Oh, obviously I’m talking about Warhammer 40k. More specifically, it’s a trailer showing the Chaos fleet in Battlefleet Gothic: Armada [official site]. It has meat and colours!

eTouchdown: Blood Bowl 2 World Cup

There’s a Blood Bowl 2 [official site] World Cup for PC players. I’m partly writing about this because it falls under the esports remit but MOSTLY because I wanted to register my suggestion that the trophy be an actual bowl full of blood.

I feel like if I start talking about it publicly now there’s a good chance someone will see and act on the idea. A BOWL OF BLOOD, PLEASE.
