Trailer Breakdown: EVERYTHING Is Brilliant About The Coast Guard Trailer

Sometimes you can read a game description and think, “Hmmm, I’m not sure which way this one might go.” And then sometimes you watch the trailer and you’re like, “OH MY GOODNESS I AM IN LOVE”. Sadly, there’s no way Coast Guard [Steam page] could ever be as good as the trailer for Coast Guard, because it is literally the best thing that’s ever happened on planet Earth.

Space Cadets: RymdResa’s Poetry Space Sim Hits Steam

RymdResa. RymdResa! RymdResa? Say it three times fast, it rolls off the tongue with a jagged clatter of consonants. Oh well, at least it’s looking nice. RymdResa [official site] is now available on Steam – it’s priced at £8.99 but there’s a 10% launch discount on offer at the moment.

Satellite Reign’s Trailer Re-Signals August 28th Release

I haven’t played Satellite Reign’s [official site] yet. It’s been in Early Access since December last year but I’m excited enough for a spiritual successor to Syndicate that I decided to wait till its rain-slick streets and neon signs were at their moody best. That’s now due to happen in ten days when the game launches on August 28th, and there’s a new launch trailer below.

The Town Of Light Trailer Introduces Renee

What an odd beast The Town of Light [official site] is. Per Alec’s preview from Develop last month, it’s Gone Home by way of Silent Hill rather than a traditional horror game. No monsters, no supernatural sub-plot and very little direct threat. A new trailer reveals that you play as Renee, an ex-inmate of Volterra, an infamous and real Italian asylum. She’s returned to the decaying ruin of the institution in the modern day to find the doll pictured above. The doll is not going to turn out to be the physical embodiment of an evil spirit – it’s just a doll she wants back – but the trip could be spooky thanks to realistic atmosphere and aesthetic, produced through thousands of hours of research.

We Can Be Heroes: Gemini

Heroes was an increasingly terrible television programme from 2006, about a group of people who started developing superpowers. Mercifully finally put out of its misery in 2010, its creator Tim Kring went on to develop giant pile of crap Touch, starring Kiefer Sutherland in his return to irrelevance, and we all moved on. Then, for reasons not explicable by modern science, earlier this year original network NBC announced the return of the series, with a 13 part run called Heroes: Reborn. A planet asked, “Why?!” An executive somewhere at NBC asked, “Can we milk this with videogame tie-ins?”

Salad Fingers: Where’s May Gone? (Where’s Firth Gone?)

Salad Fingers is a phrase that either makes you shudder, or leaves a blank look on your face. There’s no room for knowledge + complacency. It was bloody creepy. First appearing as a Flash cartoon in 2004, it ran for ten sleep-disturbing episodes over the following ten years. And now, troublingly and perhaps intriguingly, there’s to be a game. Although, of some concern, creator David Firth isn’t involved. The first glimpse is below.

Oh Thank Goodness, No Man’s Sky On PC At Launch

After all sorts of kerfuffle with the announcement of a PS4 exclusive, it looked for a horrid while like Hello Games’ extraordinary-looking No Man’s Sky [official site] might not be making it to PC – straight away, at least. Well hurrah, clearly enough bonkers-time has passed for Sony’s Microsoft-baiting ner-nerring for the simultaneous release on PC to be declared. Also, some brand new in-game play.
