about X hours ago from

You may not have heard of Offworld Trading Company, but you're probably familiar with Civilization IV. Lead designer of that project, Soren Johnson, struck out and founded new developer Mohawk Games to create this new game. Offworld Trading Company launches today on Steam Early Access with both single- and multiplayer functionality. 

Mohawk is calling Offworld Trading Company an "economic RTS" in which players compete with money, resources, and cutthroat business practices instead of bullets and missiles. 

Take a look at the video below to see the game in action and learn more about its systems.

Sword Coast Legends On PC Lets You Quest As A Hero Or Torment As The Dungeon Master

It’s been 16 years since BioWare released Baldur’s Gate, giving us a groundbreaking quest in the Forgotten Realms. Since then, that series’ legacy has touched so many titles (including BioWare’s Dragon Age series). Later this year, we’ll be able to return to that Dungeon & Dragons setting.

Digital Extremes and N-Space have announced Sword Coast Legends for PC. The title looks reminiscent of Baldur’s Gate and is helmed by Dragon Age: Origins director Dan Tudge.

Sword Coast Legends features a campaign for one to four players and a dungeon master mode. It’s up for pre-purchase now via the game’s website. You’ll need a Steam account, but the game isn’t be sold via that storefront, as some of the options come with physical items that will ship later.

Get In, Grab The Cash & Get Out In The Swindle

There was a time when Dan Marshall abandoned The Swindle, but thankfully development has resumed on the cybercrime title – complete with today's announcement trailer and news that the title is coming to consoles and PC.

The Swindle is a stealth/action caper where you must find your way into buildings, hack safes for money, and find your way out of the procedurally generated levels. The game features stealth elements, but trigger an alarm and all is not lost – it just means you have to swing into action and get out before the police arrive. When an alarm is tripped you can still hack safes, but their cash drains down while everyone is on alert.

Return safely to your airship base and you can equip bio-mods such as bombs, quad jumping, and bionic eyes, as well as hire thieves to help you out. These thieves can be upgraded, and when they die the upgrades you've purchased transfer over.

Splatoon Shopkeepers Sell You Items Based On How Cool You Are

about X hours ago from

Nintendo has shared a collection of new details about Splatoon's assorted shops and shopkeepers, as well as some new screens.

Above you will meet Annie, Crusty Sean, and Jelonzo. Annie sells you headgear. Crusty Sean sells you shoes, and though he looks like a fried shrimp, it's apparently just a weird coat. Finally, Jelonzo sells you clothing. Jelonzo is a jellyfish, a common creature in Splatoon, but Jelonzo sets himself apart by being able to speak the Inkling language where other jellyfish cannot.

The items these three sell you are dependent on earned credit, but also your experience level, which dictates how cool you are. The items will also have more than just cosmetic attributes changing certain properties of your Inkling. You can see some more images from the assorted shops in the gallery below.

After rebooting Haunted House and starting in on more recent franchise Alone in the Dark, Atari continues its romp through its back catalog. The latest franchise to get the once-over is Asteroids.

The refresh, Asteroids: Outpost, is a significant departure from the 1979 classic that put players in a triangular ship, blowing up minimalist space rocks. This time out, Asteroids is a survival game.

Players take on the role of a space miner, exploring, gathering resources, and building bases. There is a multiplayer component, as well. Elements of the original game will be present, as asteroid showers pepper the terrain.
