You've got stuff like Arkane's Deathloop and Luis Antonio's 12 Minutes, and now the upcoming FPS Lemnis Gate, which we saw a shiny new trailer for during Gamescom Opening Night Live.

Observer: System Redux confirmed for PC, and it has a demo now

As a nice little Gamescom surprise, Bloober Team today announced that Observer: System Redux will also be coming to PC. The original Observer from 2017 was a lovely little cyberpunk horror game starring Rutger "crying in the shower" Hauer, and the upcoming System Redux is an expanded and prettied-up version - but was only announced for next-gen consoles. Well, Bloober today not only confirmed a…

Little Nightmares 2 is coming in February, looking nightmarish

The horribly squidgy world of tiny tots and giant cannibals will call us back for Little Nightmares 2 on the 11th of February, 2021, Bandai Namco announced today. The first game was wonderfully unpleasant and yup, the puzzle-platforming horror sequel looks it too. We'll be playing as a new wee kid this time, with our old littl'un tagging along to help us with yet more…

Rejoice! Absolute classic citybuilder Pharaoh is getting a remake next year

It seems a developer has managed to leverage two bits of my Ancient Egypt-related childhood nostalgia in one go today. Triskell Interactive and publisher Dotemu used an animated trailer that reminds me of famous Val Kilmer musical Prince Of Egypt to announced a 2021 remake of absolute stone cold classic citybuilder Pharaoh. Well played. Pharaoh: A New Era was revealed as part of Gamescom this…

Fuzzy freelance coppers-for-hire Sam & Max are back from their ten-year hiatus. They're getting a new game, see - and for this case, you'll need a big plastic headset strapped to your noggin. Announced during tonight's Gamescom festivities, Sam & Max: This Time It's Virtual will let you join the duo as a nameless third wheel sometime next year.

Bridge Constructor: The Walking Dead exists, but mostly in live-action trailer form

What's more stressful than constructing a shonky haphazard bridge? Why, constructing a shonky haphazard bridge while zombies attack, of course! Developers ClockStone and publishers Headup Games revealed Bridge Constructor: The Walking Dead today at Gamescom Opening Night Live, with a live-action teaser trailer and so little else that the Steam store page just has screenshots from the production of that teaser trailer. Cliff notes are:…

Yup, Teardown still looks delightfully destructive

For all the fancy shooting and whimsical adventures offered up during tonight's Opening Night Live showcase, Teardown's appearance reminds us that sometimes it's just fun to take a hammer to a brick wall.

Time loop game 12 Minutes features Willem Dafoe, Daisy Ridley, and James McAvoy

Remember that time loop game 12 Minutes? It's the one where a couple are hanging out in their dimly-lit apartment, reliving a rather unpleasant home invasion over and over again. Cheery game.

BioWare give us more tantalising glimpses at Dragon Age 4, still no actual news

We just got the biggest look yet at Dragon Age 4 during Gamescom's Opening Night Live and... they still didn't really show us much. Not that I'm complaining! A morsel of info on BioWare's excellent RPG series is enough to sate me months, and the new screens and tiny segments of in-game footage shown tonight will surely keep fans speculating until we finally get a…

Unknown 9: Awakening is a newly-announced action-adventure game from Reflector Entertainment that already has an extended universe oven fresh and ready to go.

"Every mission we go on is illegal," our heroes proudly declare in a new Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War trailer. They're explaining to Ronald Reagan (the actor) and to us why they should be given free rein to hunt for Perseus, a maybe-mythical Soviet agent who could be raising a big stink. Cod Blops Cow will have multiple endings, unusually for a CoD,…
