P.A.M.E.L.A. Gets G.R.E.E.N.L.I.T. 48 Hours After Launch

P.A.M.E.L.A. [official site], the upcoming sci-fi survival horror FPS from Canadian studio NVYVE, has been Greenlit after reaching the number one spot just two days after launching on Steam Greenlight. When we last visited P.A.M.E.L.A. earlier this year, information was thin on the ground. A whole lot more has been dropped since, including a trailer, and it looks equally as pretty as it does terrifying. Take a peek:

Lovely Weather We’re Having Checks Your Skies

OH GOD, NEW PHOBIA

Here’s a cute 3D explorer game about the weather that’s just popped up on Steam Greenlight. It’s called Lovely Weather We’re Having [official site] and it looks gentle and colourful and weathery which is rather appealing as I’ve had a nice morning of typing and listening to the rain fall outside.

“You play as a young girl who’s locked out of her house, and there’s also a cute dog and a dozen NPC friends with distinct personalities,” says developer Julian Glander. The neat part for me is that the environment she is exploring changes to reflect local weather data.

How Much Is That Dogi In The Window: Judo

A childhood spent playing IK+ and an adulthood spent playing Nidhogg and games like it means that the overlapping circles in the Judo venn diagram is labelled “Graham”. That’s Judo not as in the modern martial art, but as the four-player indie fighting game on Steam Greenlight.

Hatred Has Returned To Steam Greenlight

Yesterday, Hatred was removed from Steam Greenlight. Despite having more than 13,000 votes and being the seventh ranked game of 2,000+, the isometric killing spree simulator had its page removed and Valve told the developers, “based on what we see on Greenlight we would not publish Hatred on Steam. As such we’ll be taking it down.”

Now it’s back and developers Destructive Creations have posted what appears to be an apologetic email from Gabe Newell regarding the decision. That’s below.

Revivalist Arena FPS Reflex Is Now On Early Access

Adam is the one exploding, metaphorically speaking.

Reflex aims to bring back the competitive, multiplayer Quake 3-styled first-person shooter, but its Kickstarter project was cancelled early when it became clear it wasn’t going to meet its goal. Its developers said that instead they were going to focus their efforts on polishing up the very small, existing build of the game so that they could release it into Early Access, to hopefully convince people of the merits of the game by simply letting them play it. Less than a month later, that’s now happened: Reflex’s alpha is available now through Steam.

Sky Battles Has Arcade Dogfights With Titanic Monsters

When a writer says that a game is “X + Y”, that’s them taking a lazy shortcut towards capturing your interest. But also, Sky Battles is Crimson Skies + Shadow of the Colossus, and that does capture your interest. There’s too few arcade flight combat games in the world, and there’s certainly not enough which feature titanic beasts amid the dogfighters. The game’s just been Greenlit, so have a gander at the trailer below.

This One’s A: KeeperRL Greenlit, Development Extended

It used to be standard procedure to celebrate the milestones of development for games you were looking forward to: announcement, going gold, getting released. Now I find myself celebrating the indefinite delay of those milestones. KeeperRL is an “open-source dungeon simulator inspired by Dungeon Keeper and Dwarf Fortress” which has been in-development for some time and was due to be finished before the end of the year.

But after the game improved this past year and was Greenlit last month, its developer has announced instead that he’s going to continue working on it for at least another year – and probably much longer.
