A brand new, fantasy-science platformer has been announced called A Story About My Uncle. It captures a bit of the game Prey and fuses it in with Mirror's Edge and a bit of Tribes.
A new teaser trailer was released for the successfully Kickstarted game, Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams. The trailer is basically just to promote that the game is currently available for pre-order at Good Old Games and GamersGate at a 25% off discount. The game itself is a fast-paced, side-scrolling platformer much like Crystal Dynamics Pandemonium series.
One of the most wildly inventive side-scrollers to release this year is a game called Intrusion 2 by Aleksey Abramenko. The game fuses classic Contra-style run and gun action with new-school physics-based mechanics and vehicular interaction. It's almost like if Metal Slug, Gunforce and Just Cause 2 got together and had a Russian baby, it would be named Intrusion 2.
With less than a week to go on their Kickstarter campaign, Black Forest Games is working diligently to spread the word about their 3D, side-scrolling platformer called Project Giana. With a goal of $150,000 the team is barely getting there as they sit at the $107,000 mark looking for that extra boost to get them across the finish line.
Kickstarter has all sorts of games, projects and creative endeavors going on and it's easy to see a few and miss the rest. Mercenary Kings is one of those games that could have easily slipped through the cracks but it's uber-awesomeness is what makes it stand out from all the other games out there. Why? Simple, it's like Metal Slug meets an RPG crafting game.
Might and Delight's newest side-scrolling, 3D, adventure-platforming puzzle game, Pid is a mighty delight to behold, indeed. The game may not have next-gen graphics or visual effects, but the gameplay is leagues beyond what we're currently getting from most other AAA titles.
Fez, the throwback platforming title for the Xbox Live Arcade, has finally be rated by the PEGI, meaning that it will be released sooner rather than later. Well, at least everyone who wants to play the game believes that.
Rochard is a very fun and challenging puzzle-platformer that shouldn't be overlooked. It's not often you find puzzles designed with such consistent quality and challenge.
