Samorost 3 Has A Release Date, And A Breathtakingly Beautiful New Trailer

The journey of Samorost feels very much like the journey of designers Amanita. The first game in the series was a free quick-to-play web game built in Flash, but Samorost 3 [official site] – coming out on the 24th March – is a lengthy downloadable adventure following their astonishing Machinarium and Botanicula. From small beginnings, they’re now one of the most respected adventure teams around, and expectations are extremely high for the first full-length entry in the Samorost series. Expectations that looks rather likely to be met if the quality of the new trailer, below, is anything to go by.

You come home to find your home has been ransacked and a lifetime of collecting priceless works of art is now reduced to nothing but a memory. The only solution?

Date Worthy: The Sims 4 Due For Release Next Autumn

Looks about right.

The Sims 4‘s big new feature is that your sims’ emotions unlock context-sensitve actions and change their abilities. That means, as an example, that depressed sims make better novelists. I am here today to confirm that being sleepy and hungry does not make you better at writing game news on the internet. Also, that The Sims 4 is due out next Autumn, as picked up by Blues News.

It’s About Time (& Space): Antichamber Release Date


You’d need a six dimensional tongue to describe Alexander Bruce’s Antichamber. It is a game and a psychological experiment. I’m not even sure if writing about it is a good idea, or if it’s somehow judging from it’s non-euclidean dimension. It exists in a potential form right now, but it’ll soon exist in exchange for money and a few frazzled braincells. Bruce has descended from the higher plane, where time is of no consequence and everyone has both completed Antichamber and yet never played it, to let us earthly types know it’s out on in the fifth quadrangle of hex space, just before the Platnar’s ascendance. That is a fixed point in time. I’m just running it through the un-gibbernator to let you know. Put on ze goggles.

Wheelie Good News! Trials Evolution On PC In March

It’s obvious that RedLynx stopped loving us. We were there for them, day and night, attending to playing their games. But then oh look who should stride in with their long legs and big, muscley arms but Microsoft, flashing their wallets and giant cars. And Trials really became an Xbox thing, leaving us staring at the space where RedLynx used to be, sobbing.

Oh, but who’s this crawling back to us? Microsoft’s big money and tall hats weren’t everything you hoped for, eh? You think you can just waltz back in here, play with our hearts like they’re days old treacle pudding? Yes, quite correct, because Trials Evolution is bloody brilliant.

Ace Of Spades Out 9 Days Before End Of World


Blocky multiplayer shooter that’s not at all Minecraft with guns, Ace of Spades, is coming out 12/12/12, which is the most terrifying date of all time. Think about it. It’s 6/6/6 times two! The number of the beast, doubled. And as John points out, it’s nine days before the apocalypse. What’s worse is that it will cost 9.99 in the currency of the beast (dollars). If you have a mirror strategically placed on your ceiling, close your eyes and say “Notch” three times. Now look up! It says 6.66! And it’s on the digital distribution platform of the beast, Steam. Why? What would happen if you spilled a drink on the Devil? What would come off Mister Hellpants? That’s right! Steam… what’s that noise? Get out of the house. Flee for your life! It’s coming.
