Indie studio Tendershoot has just announced its latest project, which is an eerily uncanny recreation of what browsing the web was like in the '90s. In Hypnospace Outlaw, players log on to the virtual network and customize their in-game PCs with wallpapers, screen savers, and software. Along the way, they'll be charged with enforcing rules like copyright theft and page vandalism.

Take a look at the announcement trailer below to see a glimpse of what the game looks like. The studio says if you're thinking "Geocities: The Game," you're on the right track.

Versatile Vehicles Add Smashing Strategies

A new trailer for Codemasters' destructive racing title Onrush gives great details on the game's vehicle classes and their unique abilities. There's a tool for every job, and each of the eight classes brings some significant advantages to the table.

Onrush is all about taking out any opponents in your way, but the classes' abilities go further by enabling gameplay strategies that could make this title about more than just naked aggression. Draining or disabling an opponent's boost ability, helping nearby teammates in a variety of ways, blinding competitors with your gravestone, and much more give you plenty of options.

Full a full list of each of the classes' particulars head over to the game's official blog, and be sure to check out the video below.

Your body is a temple in this open-world survival title

With numerous survival and battle royale titles swarming the video game market, developer Gamepires aims to stand on top using realism with their upcoming Steam Early Access game, SCUM. 

As a prisoner on a TV show, the ultimate objective is to win their freedom by surviving against zombie-like creatures with or against up to 64 other contestants on a 12 kilometer island. The focus to achieving that goal is mastering the human body and its complexities through the “most advanced human body simulation in the world,” creative director Tomislav Pongrac claims. The inspiration for the simulation comes from the team’s research while playing myriad survival titles. They realized that, aside from weapons players discover, differences were merely cosmetic. “You can’t call yourself a survival game if you don’t simulate the real world in some way,” says Gamespire CTO Andrej Levenski.

The trailer dropped during then KINGDOM HEARTS Union χ Dandelion Meeting in Anaheim, a fan event for the Kingdom Hearts mobile game, Kingdom Hearts Union χ (read as Cross).
