Empires and Tribes a hybrid city builder and RPG

loading…
Empires and Tribes is a unique hybrid of a medieval city builder and a role-playing game. You will undertake the duties of a mayor in the 13th century and manage the expansion of your city, ensure the production of resources and raise a powerful army to protect yourself from rival principalities.
Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous Update - Grand Beta Survey
A month has passed since we launched Beta Stage 2. As you well know, Beta is here for testing the future game, finding bugs, and of course — gathering your feedback! Just as during the earlier stages — Alpha and Beta 1 — we’ve launched a grand beta survey. You can find a link in the Main Menu of the game if you have the Beta Early Access. Please follow the link and take some time to complete the survey — it will last till the 13th of June. A small warning: as we need to gather information on nearly all the aspects of the game, the survey turned out to be a long one. May this not stop you! This might be a challenge, but it is a very important part of the development. We’ve always been very attentive to the voice of the community, as we feel the community to be the co-creator of our games. It was you who helped us to change and upgrade Pathfinder: Kingmaker a great deal. And this time again, we need your opinion to make the new game better, so we all will get the best game ever upon the release on the 2nd of September.

Urban Strife - Shotgun vs Barrel vs Billy Bo

loading…
Sheriff Extraordinaire Billy Bo knows he should hide well when shooting starts. And he feels pretty good about a metal barrel as a cover cause all back in the Hicks farm, that kept you pretty safe from a load of buckshot. What happens though when we use a slug?
Urban Strife - Blind Shooting

loading…
Sometimes you just know the enemy is out there, even if you don't see them. So forcing a shot in blind, in their general direction, could work. If you have ammo to spare.

Jeff Vogel's Design Deep Dive of Valheim - Blog Post
I love to go into design deep dives of indie games. Not enough game criticism delves into the delicate workings of games. It's important to ask the questions: What in this game works? What doesn't? What good things about this game can other developers use to improve their work? What pitfalls should be avoided?

So I'm going to talk about my recent addiction, Valheim. It is a phenomenally successful indie title. It is in Steam Early Access and seems to be about half done.

It sold over 7 million copies by this writing, which puts most AAA titles to shame. I've finished all the available content. More is on the way. Let's talk about it!
Diablo 4 - Hype Alone Won't Work this Time
The Diablo franchise has been through the wringer in recent years. The much-hyped third entry was perfectly okay, early server issues aside, but the stalled mobile game and that now-infamous quote from Wyatt Cheng (ₓdo you guys not have phones?₝) revealed a gulf between Blizzard₄s plans for Diablo and what fans actually wanted for the storied ARPG. Diablo 4, then, could serve as the dungeon crawler₄s redemption arc. However, despite getting its first trailer back in November 2019, it remains in early development.

The one bit of concrete information fans do have regarding the Diablo 4 release date is that it won't be coming out in 2021 or, indeed, any time soon. This franchise once went 12 years without a game, after all.
Corven: Path of Redemption - May 2021 Update
You know how it is when you got 100% motivation for something, then you do it and it actually works out and you are "in the zone"? It's a great feeling right? Well, I was "in the zone" with writing the last few weeks and I could not be happier about it.

Don't get me wrong I had written a draft of the full story arc a long time ago and worked on parts of it in detail as well, but really fleshing out the story is something I had put off for a while because I was not inspired to do it for a while. Well I am happy to report the inspiration came back and I made gigantic steps forward with the story, quests and dialogues.

My respect for authors who write compelling books grew immensely ever since I started work on the Corven storyline. But then again, writing for a game has an additional factor: "Can this technically be done? Does it make sense within the confines of the gameplay mechanics?" There are restrictions which have to be considered.

Indeed. Urban Strife looks like what Dead State should have been.

Well Dead State was the inspiration for the game. Still yeah looks to be better and has a bigger budget. It was my third pick for most promising RPG of 2021 on our vote.

CD PROJEKT Breach May Include Staff Details - Breach Update
This message is a follow-up on the February security breach which targeted the CD PROJEKT Group. Today, we have learned new information regarding the breach, and now have reason to believe that internal data illegally obtained during the attack is currently being circulated on the Internet.

We are not yet able to confirm the exact contents of the data in question, though we believe it may include current/former employee and contractor details in addition to data related to our games. Furthermore, we cannot confirm whether or not the data involved may have been manipulated or tampered with following the breach.

Currently, we are working together with an extensive network of appropriate services, experts, and law enforcement agencies, including the General Police Headquarters of Poland. We have also contacted Interpol and Europol. The information we shared in February with the President of the Personal Data Protection Office (PUODO) has also been updated.

Haha, somebody decided to make the best Borderlands DLC into a game, huh? I love me some Ashly Burch/Tiny Tina. I never once had the thought "I hope Borderlands has a spin-off", but if you were going to make one, this is probably the right one to make.
