Seven: The Days Long Gone snags a demo, an update and a sale

I was really tempted to pick up stealth-action RPG Seven: The Days Long Gone over Christmas, but three things stopped me. 1) I wasn't sure I'd like it, 2) most people said it was buggy and 3) it was priced just a little bit too high. Yesterday, those sneaky devs and publishers launched a three pronged attack to win over me and my fellow free-running…

Seven: The Days Long Gone shows off sneaking, disguises and murder

Seven: The Days Long Gone is a terrible name and a fascinating game. It’s a stealthy RPG from former Witcher 3 devs that calls to mind everything from Thief to Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun. It’s due out next week, but in the meantime I've been playing a little. Carry on for some thoughts and a new trailer with some stealth lessons to learn.

Ex-Witcher 3 devs’ open-world stealth RPG Seven out next month

We may not have a clear idea of what the future holds for the Witcher series, but here's something to tide you over: an isometric, open world, stealth-centric RPG from sometime Witcher 3 senior quest designer Jakub Rokosz and his new team, Fool's Theory. We've known about Seven: The Days Long Gone for quite a while now, but all of a sudden it's due for…

Husk is a first-person tribute to the horror of Silent Hill

As survival-horror town names go, “Shivercliff” is really skirting the edges of self-parody. But that’s what the creators of Husk [official website] have gone with. It’s a first-person psychological horror game that they’re describing as a tribute to classics like Silent Hill. Set in the dreadyear of 1995, you’ve been in a train crash outside the mysterious town but there’s no sign of your daughter…

Stealthy Seven Sneaks Out First Trailer

You wait all bloody day for a stealth ninja to show up and then three come at once - what are the odds? With Shadwen, Aragami and Seven [official site] all perched on the development horizon, arms stretched aloft their heads, one knee pulled tight to their chests, it seems the future is shaping up rather nicely for fans of the sleuthing genre. Seven, you may…

Seven: A Thief-Inspired RPG From Former Witcher Folks

A parkouring post-apocalyptic open-world isometric RPG inspired by Thief and made in collaboration with a team including former Witching folks from CD Projekt RED is a confusing pitch (open-world RPG inspired by Thief?), but one with interesting elements. That's the broad idea of Seven [official site], which developers IMGN.PRO (them lot behind iffy Sean Bean horror Kholat) announced this morning. At the moment they don't…

Sean Bean’s Winter Vacation: Brief Thoughts On Kholat

In Kholat [official site], every day is a snow day. I've spent a couple of hours wandering around in the game's open world and I've mostly been looking at drifts, flurries and heaps of the white stuff. Occasionally celebrity narrator Sean Bean says something, sounding weary even for a Yorkshireman, but he's mostly been quiet since picking his way through the introduction (at one point…

Winter Is Coming Next Week: Sean Bean Narrates Kholat

Alex has pitched Kholat [official site] to me as "looks alright, has Sean Bean in it." So naturally, moved by his booming recommendation I've slipped on my Sharpe #1 Fan jumper to take a look. And O! It takes me back to those dark nights in Canada reading through Wikipedia's strangest entries. Have you heard of the Dyatlov Pass Incident? The event saw the mysterious deaths of…

Ural ‘Orrible Deaths: First-Person Spooker Kholat

The Dyatlov Pass incident is one of those strange and horrible tragedies you'd read in a book filled with tales of spontaneous human combustion, the Mary Celeste, ball lightning, Roanoke Colony, the Lead Masks Case, star jelly, and other mysteries that the author's not saying aliens did, right, but aliens probably did it. Nine hikers died in Russia's Ural mountains in 1959 after cutting their…
