Psychological horrors stack in devilish deck-builder Inscryption

Game Ace Pro 0 0 Article rating: No rating

Hi, I’m Daniel, creator of Inscryption and I’m thrilled to finally bring the game to PlayStation players! To celebrate the announcement I’d like to highlight some of the cool stuff that awaits you in Inscryption, and the new PlayStation-exclusive features that I’ve added just for you.

For those of you who may be unfamiliar, Inscryption is an inky black card-based odyssey that’s part deck-building roguelike, part escape-room puzzler and part psychological horror. As video game genres go, it’s a pretty potent concoction. What starts out as a devilish deck-builder soon becomes something altogether different, but I’ll leave you to discover its darkest secrets for yourself.

The game initially finds you trapped at the mercy of a sadistic stranger known only as Leshy, who appears as nothing more than a pair of glowing eyes staring out at you from the darkest recess of his cabin. With no memory of how you ended up there, Leshy offers you the chance to play your way out of his clutches with a unique set of cards. 

As you learn and adapt to Leshy’s ever-changing rulebook, you’ll expand your deck of woodland creature cards by draft, surgery, and self-mutilation. Sacrifice critters like squirrels and rabbits to play bigger and more threatening creatures like the powerful Grizzly or rare mythological cards like the Mantis God. Between games you’re able to move around the cabin, gradually solving a series of puzzles that grant you powers at the card table and may unlock deeper secrets.

Cursed to Golf tees off on August 18 for PS5 and PS4

Game Ace Pro 0 0 Article rating: No rating

We can finally reveal that yes, Cursed to Golf is coming on August 18th and will be there day one on GolfStation PS5 and PS4! As lifelong PlayStation fans, we couldn’t be happier for PlayStation players to hit the links down in the depths of Golf Purgatory with us. So what is Cursed to Golf? Well, it’s a ‘Golf-Like’, meaning it’s kind of like a 2D side scrolling golf game with some genre twisting roguelike elements. Sounds like a weird combo? Take a look at our fresh new trailer, it should make things a little clearer:

Cursed to Golf tees off on August 18 for PS5 and PS4


Welcome to Golf Purgatory

In Cursed to Golf, you play as a would-be golf champion who tragically dies just as he’s about to win a tournament. Instead of making it to heaven (or hell), you find yourself in Golf Purgatory. Once there a burly apparition informs you that you’ve been… CURSED! But it’s not all bad, if you can golf your way through the ever-changing 18 hole course, you’ll be able to ascend back to life. In the grand tradition of every adventure story, no one’s ever made it through before, but hey, things might be different this time. If you fail a hole, prepare for your pesky curse to whisk you all the way back to the beginning of the course so you can start over again.

Golf in the land of the dead is very different to the sport we all know and love. For starters, the course is made up of 18 holes, but each time you tee off, the holes will be randomly selected from over 70 hand-designed ones to create a fresh course. The holes are dungeon-like, often with multiple paths to the flag, going in different directions, complete with all manner of traps and hazards. Some, like water and bunkers you have probably seen before, but there are also Grave Grabbers, deadly spikes, explosive TNT boxes and more to stop you in your tracks. The course is also spread across 4 biomes: Purgatory, The Desert, The Caverns and Hell, each adding unique twists and turns based on their theme. On top of all that, you only have 5 shots to make it to the flag. Damn, this curse doesn’t mess around!

An Ace in the Hole

We’re not completely evil though, there are of course a load of ways to give yourself an edge through this challenging course. In addition to hazards, the holes are also littered with helpful objects.Shot Idols

It’s official! The Tomorrow Children: Phoenix Edition will launch September 6th in Europe and North America and September 7th in Japan. The date marks exactly 6 years since we shared our first exploration into the Void and we can’t wait to be back. To celebrate, I’ve got a jam-packed gameplay preview to share including lots of new features, so make sure to check out the trailer below and keep reading for the exclusive details.

The Tomorrow Children: Phoenix Edition Launches September 6

A Welcome Return 

If you’re new to The Tomorrow Children, welcome to the Void! I’m Dylan Cuthbert, Game Director and CEO at Q-Games in Kyoto. I’m proud to be here to share today’s reveal with you, which includes a whole host of announcements for both new and veteran players alike. As a quick refresher, The Tomorrow Children: Phoenix Edition takes place within an alternate future following a failed experiment to unite the minds of all humanity. The return of civilisation now lies in the hands of Projection Clones; life forms capable of venturing deep into the Void in search of preserved human survivors. That’s where you come in…

If you’re a returning player, you’ll no doubt have noticed a lot of interesting things in today’s gameplay trailer. Since acquiring the IP last year, we’ve added a lot of content to bring exciting new experiences to The Tomorrow Children: Phoenix Edition. I want to kick things off by introducing you to one of my personal favourite additions; Monoliths.

Gateway to the Void

We decided early on in development that we wanted to add more islands. That was an easy choice to make. Deciding which ideas to implement was… more difficult. With a wealth of promising concepts in hand, we started exploring how we could diversify the Void in the multitude of ways we had in mind. Monoliths gave us the perfect gateway to expand existing islands and morph them into new landscapes, creating a broad experience that now spans more than 40 islands in total. 

Monoliths are obelisk-like structures that can be discovered nestled within islands emerging from the Void. They create new and mysterious ways to explore and, by triggering one, you can discover further untold secrets of an island. Our design te

Signalis brings multilayered psychological sci-fi survival horror to PS4 October 27

Signalis is not only a classic survival horror game, but also a psychological horror story with elements of cosmic horror, so what I write here will only scratch the surface. To find out what this game is really about, you will have to play it for yourself.

Signalis brings multilayered psychological sci-fi survival horror to PS4 October 27

Signalis is an atmospheric, melancholic horror story set in a retrotech sci-fi world.

You are Elster, a technician Replika, who wakes up from stasis to find that her spaceship has crash-landed, and that the pilot Ariane Yeong, the only other person on board, is missing. Elster soon finds something hidden below the planet’s icy surface that should not be there, and receives a mysterious radio signal that changes everything.

Driven by a promise to her lost partner, Elster makes her way through a seemingly abandoned re-education and mining facility where she has to face horribly distorted figures trudging through the hallways and attacking on sight.

As she descends deeper into the facility and the mines, she encounters another Replika with a dark agenda, a young woman who has her own burdens to bear, and strange visions of memories from another life.

The world of Signalis is a stark and desolate place of concrete walls and humming CRT screens – a world in which the totalitarian regime of Eusan is ever present through surveillance, bureaucracy, and propaganda.

As Elster journeys into the mysterious government facility, she must find creative ways to get through its many bureaucratic safeguards. She must use her radio to decrypt messages,

Managing a cult can be a messy business in Cult of the Lamb, out August 11

Game Ace Pro 0 0 Article rating: No rating

In Massive Monster and Devolver Digital’s Cult of the Lamb, players take on the role of the Lamb, a cutesy cult leader and adorable harbinger of doom, saved from death to serve The One Who Waits. Players embark on crusades through randomly generated dungeons filled with hordes of monsters and false prophets, to find new followers and resources to bring back to their cult.

Of course, what is a shepherd without a flock? Back home you must indoctrinate any new followers into the cult. You can customize them, build new structures, and perform great sermons in your temple – letting you draw power from your followers to grow stronger for your next crusade.

To run a successful and productive cult you must keep your followers healthy and their faith in you high. They have needs that must be met otherwise they will become unhappy – and eventually turn against you. Build homes so they have somewhere to sleep at night, grow crops and cook meals to keep them fed and happy…

…and make sure you clean up their poop.

What goes in must come out! Followers will leave waste that must be cleaned up, or they can get sick and eventually die. In the beginning, it will be the job of the humble Lamb to ensure your community remains clean and tidy. However, as the cult grows you will unlock structures that make it easier to maintain, and eventually become self-sustaining. Outhouses will give followers some privacy and a place to do their business, and janitor stations will let you assign followers the job of keeping the place tidy – so you don’t have to.

Remember those crops you were growing? Well, waste not want not! Poop you collect can be used to fertilize farm plots, to maximize their output and grow juicy bumper crops. Build a farmer station and some silos, and followers will plant new seeds and then fertilize them for you. As the mighty Lamb you should make your cult members do the dirty wo
