'First draft' of Wasteland 3 ready next month, still on track for 2019 release

For a game so ambitious, sprawling post-apocalyptic RPG Wasteland 2 did a solid job keeping a tight leash on its release date. InXile's Kickstarted sequel to the classic 1988 game Wasteland was delayed once—but only by a few weeks, and even then it was only to ensure that physical copies of the game were ready for backers. Wasteland 3 has raised even more money from crowdfunding, this time through Fig, and will therefore have even more eyes tracking its progress. If the latest developer update is anything to go by then it's all coming along nicely, and a "first draft" of the game will be ready next month.

Mansions of Madness is getting a proper videogame adaptation

Lovecraftian dungeon crawl might not sound like a typical genre to you, but board game Mansions of Madness is an entertaining and spooky romp in the shoes of a short-lived cosmic horror protagonist. A videogame adaptation called Mansions of Madness: Mother’s Embrace was announced today, and this hybrid of the tabletop rules with digital twists is scheduled to release on Steam early next year. Developers Luckyhammers and publisher Asmodee Digital seem quite excited about it, calling it “the next evolution of the iconic game.” The tabletop game is developed by Fantasy Flight Games, which is owned by Asmodee.
