To The Moon Developer Teases New Murder Thriller Project Impostor Factory

When To The Moon released in 2011, the narrative adventure game was beloved by fans for its strong and ethically dubious story. While developer Freebird Games has been hard at work at various things, they have also teased what appears to be a similar narrative follow-up in the form of a murder thriller called Impostor Factory.

You can check out the very short teaser, and I emphasize the teaser aspect, below.

The developer has described the game as "a time-resetting thriller-mystery that involves a series of bloody murders," which sounds like a fun romp. I notice they did not necessarily say you were solving these murders, just that it involves them.

Indie Ninja Platformer The Messenger Coming To PS4 Next Week

Indie action platformer The Messenger released last year on PC and Switch to acclaim from fans and critics alike, as its close adherence to NES games that inspired it combining with non-traditional ideas like switching graphical styles with time travel appealed to a lot of fans. Now players on the PlayStation 4 will get to see what all the fuss is about as the game releases in just one week on the console.

You can check out a gameplay trailer of the PlayStation 4 version below, but it seems to be identical to the PC and Switch releases. 

The new picnic expansion is arriving to all platforms, including the PS4, when it launches later this year. Fans of old school platforming should take a look at the PS4 version of The Messenger when it launches on March 19.

Netflix Working On A Dragon's Dogma Anime Adaptation

In a recent press release, Netflix announced that it is working on an anime adaptation of Dragon's Dogma. The streaming service is partnering with animation studio Sublimation to bring the project to life.

Hardly any other details are mentioned, so we don't know when this releases or what the voice cast will look like. Still, I'm excited to see what comes of it.

Lawsuits Against Fortnite Dances Dropped Temporarily

Lawsuits Against Fortnite Dances Dropped Temporarily

Fortnite has had a ridiculous amount of success the last couple years, but it hasn't been without controversy. Last year, several lawsuits were filed against Epic Games in regards to in-game dance emotes.

Now, 'Fresh Prince' star Alfonso Ribeiro, rapper 2 Milly, Backpack Kid, and Orange Shirt Kid have dropped their lawsuits temporarily, according to Hollywood Reporter.

This comes after a recent change how copyright law is handled. Just days ago, the U.S. Supreme Court decided that under the Copyright Act, plaintiffs must wait until the U.S. Copyright Office has accepted or refused the registration, which could take months. The U.S. Copyright Office declined registration for the Carlton dance, which Ribeiro had sued about in December. The office says that it is a "simple dance routine."

The Division 2 Just Launched Earlier Than Expected On Xbox One

The Division 2 Just Launched Earlier Than Expected On Xbox One

While it was supposed to launch at midnight, we can confirm that The Division 2 is now live and playable on Xbox One right now. It's unclear whether this is a leak due to an error, or if Ubisoft is launching the game earlier than the previously mentioned timeframe.

The Division 2 is currently only playable on Xbox One. PlayStation 4 and PC are expected to launch at midnight. Because the Xbox One early release may be an error, this may not last long. It looks like the Gold version is playable, but we're not sure about other versions just yet.

We've reached out to Ubisoft to find out more. Stay tuned to Game Informer for our review of The Division 2 which will be published in the coming days. 

The Made-For-TV Doom: Annihilation Is Apparently Real

The Made-For-TV Doom: Annihilation Is Apparently Real

Doom is a franchise that has been around for a long time and carries with it a certain prestige. It's revival in 2016 was met with universal acclaim that we said was a "welcome return to form" in our review. But for a game whose focus is not and has never been on creating a compelling narrative (the main character doesn't even have a name) it sure is strange that it now has two movies.

The first movie is no masterpiece, but putting The Rock in it at least gave it some legs. Doom: Annihilation looks to give you the Doom story at its most pure – a portal opens up on Mars and demons are on the loose – but without the iconic Doom marine behind the gun. The trailer only says that it is coming soon, so we'll just have to wait and see when Doom: Annihilation makes its way to a computer near you.

Check out the trailer above to see for yourself what sort of trouble the Mars marines are getting up to or read our most recent coverage of Doom Eternal and our what we'd like to see when the game launches later this year.
