Stealth Game Shadwen Sneaks Onto PS4 And PC In May

Frozenbyte, the developer of Trine, has announced a new stealth action game titled Shadwen, where you take the role of a female assassin who can bend time.

Similar to the indie shooter Superhot, time only moves when you move, which gives you plenty of time to coordinate your attacks, even if you're in mid-air. If these moves don't go according to plan, you can rewind time to retry a different maneuver. It's up to you whether you want to approach your take downs lethally or non-lethally, and these choices will affect the storyline.

Nier: Automata Gameplay Surfaces, But Might Not Be Live For Long

New Nier: Automata gameplay has emerged on YouTube from the Square Enix event from yesterday, NieR Music Concert and Talk Live. All footage was live streamed through a paid live stream broadcast that was limited to those who purchased tickets, therefore the YouTube video below may be only available for a short period of time before Square pulls it offline.

The video was uploaded by YouTuber Xenosaga7, which you can view down below. Because the video of gameplay footage was captured during the live stream, the quality is significantly lower, but keep in mind that this is in no way representative of the finalized game's frame rate.

Horror Adventure Corpse Party Bound For 3DS And PC

The quirky horror Corpse Party series is a cross between visual novel and adventure game. Despite the sprite-based visuals, Corpse Party tells a wonderfully creepy story.

If you don’t have a PSP or Vita, the series probably coasted under your radar. You can remedy that on April 25 on PC or this summer on 3DS.

Nicalis Is Bringing The Retro-Infused Sidescrolling RPG To PC, Mac & Linux

Nicalis Is Bringing The Retro-Infused Sidescrolling RPG To PC, Mac & Linux

Publisher Nicalis, best known for its gruelingly difficult 2D platformers 1001 Spikes and Cave Story, is bringing another retro-inspired sidescroller to the table. Creepy Castle is a cutesy sidescrolling RPG that hides a deep conspiracy under its surface.

Developer Dopterra funded Creepy Castle with a successful Kickstarter in 2014, and has announced that the pixelated title will be making its way to PC, Mac, and Linux this summer. Creepy Castle follows Moth (who, unsurprisingly, is a moth) as he uncovers mysteries traversing a spooky, stonewalled castle. You'll find tomes that give insight to the world's lore in between duels with a variety of enemies and bosses.  

The pixel-art is colored with a limited palette that meets somewhere in between the visual styles of the NES and MSX computer system. Battles unfold through numerous turn-based mini-games in a similar way to 2015's hit indie-RPG Undertale. According to a video posted on the developer's YouTube account, characters from Five Nights at Freddy's, Shovel Knight, and Super Meat Boy will make cameo appearances in Creepy Castle.
