It’s actually been a year since I’ve done this series. Better late than never!valium online pharmacy
So as a refresher, Red Horizon is a feature that talks about upcoming games that I’m anticipating.
Shadowrun Returnsbuy ambien no prescription
Release Date: July 25, 2013buy klonopin online
Studio: Harebrained Schemes
Genre: RPG (futuristic)
So this technically comes out in a few days, but I figure it deserves an announcement since it’s so close to August (and since I didn’t do this post for July). For those unaware, Shadowrun is a very old, classic game (circa 1989). It was a game ahead of it’s time and it’s revival is very welcomed.
It’s a cyberpunk flavored adventure set in the not too distant future with RPG elements that help guide you through a covert street career. That sounds more complicated than I meant, but trust me on it. Harebrained Schemes ran a successful Kickstarter to help fund the project last year and now it will be delivered to our computers this week! This is surely the game I’ve been looking forward to the most this summer. It better be glorious!
Beatbuddy: Tale of the Guardians
Release Date: August 6, 2013
Origin: Hamburg, Germany
Beatbuddy reminds me a lot of Capsized aesthetically, an indie title I bought over a year ago. I was rather surprised to find that Alien Trap wasn’t behind this one. THREAKS came up with this interesting little game. You traverse the land of Symphonia to the rhythm of the sounds and music in the game. The way it’s described you’ll be traveling to save Beatbuddy’s homeland by unlocking the mysteries of the music.
Interestingly, the same writer who just brought us the new Lara Croft narrative in Tomb Raider is also hands on in the writing department for this game: Rhianna Pratchet.
Studio: Jakub Kasztalski and team
Origin: Los Angeles, CA
Postmortem has promise as a short little strategy game which is less about long-term planning and more about moral dilemma. You take on the role of death. Death gets to take only one life. The gameplay revolves around observing the characters in the game in order to make a good decision on who should die.
This isn’t my ideal kind of game, but at a price of FREE it seems like a must have. I am a little intrigued at what the gameplay might actually entail and what sorts of dilemmas/consequences await death, but it seems this will be a game very low on content, while high on the intrigue factor. What do you have to lose?
That’s it for this month’s Horizon! This is probably all the games I’ll be able to afford next month, if at all! What games are you looking forward to in August?
