Hadn't played it yet sorry.

As for the game it was was an unfinished mess on release due to the developer shutting down, but the publisher sued and got the rights back. Hence the update to fix it.

You might want to read the comments on the older news-bits.

PAX Online is here and merged with EGX.

So get a free demo of the following games until they're taken down.
  1. Gamedec
  2. Solasta: Crown of the Magister
  3. The Hand of Merlin
  4. This Starry Void
I'm sure more games will have demos as it lasts until September 20th.

"In all honesty, Gamedec is the kind of 7/10 RPG small European studios specialize in."
Ouch! What a line.
That PC Gamer preview is quite interesting though, thanks for posting. Sounds like the writing isn't top notch but it's a good concept and I'm looking forward to seeing how it pans out.

Tribes Of Midgard PAX 2020 Trailer

Tribes of Midgard is a new game in which players must resist the oncoming invasion of Giants during Ragnarök. Set in worlds full of dark creatures, hidden gods and abundant materials to be uncovered, you play as a Viking living in a village that houses the Seed of Yggdrasil; the last bastion that protects the Gods from the other Realms.

You’ll need to explore the wilderness to craft new weapons and be prepared to defend the sacred center of your village from the grim shadows from Hel that prey upon its power. All the while, Giants stalk ever closer to the village, seeking to destroy Midgard and fulfill the prophecy of the end of the world.

loading…
The land of Operencia awaits… now in VR! With stunning VR environments, Operencia: The Stolen Sun modernizes everything you love about classic first-person dungeon-crawlers. Gather your team of memorable heroes, and guide them through an immersive world inspired by Central European mythology, where history meets legend.
Wasteland 3 Patch Progress Update
We launched Wasteland 3 just two weeks ago, and if it was a nonstop effort before we launched, it’s definitely been nonstop since. In a lot of ways launching a game is not when work stops, but when it starts, and we got right to work on taking in bug reports, feedback, and working toward making fixes and improvements as quickly as possible. One thing we discovered as bug reports came in is that our testing process had been too focused, and not enough time had been spent playing the game naturally as an end user would. We’re going to have some deep discussions and post-mortems on our processes going forward, but what’s important right now is getting issues addressed.

None of this is intended to minimize the issues, but we want to share more details about what we’re seeing and how we’re working hard to address the most impactful ones. For those of you that have had a poor experience, or outright couldn’t play, we sincerely apologize, and are making fixes and improvements as quickly as possible.
Torchlight III Early Access Update - UI Scale and Widescreen
During Early Access we want players to get up-to-the-moment information about what's going on with the game & dev team focus. This week's State of the Game letter comes from Tyler Thompson, Project Lead at Echtra.

Hello Frontier Family, Not every feature follows the same path. Each one goes through its own journey. Here is one feature and its journey.

As with many features, the idea came from a few places at once. We had gotten feedback that the UI was too large. We kept shrinking the UI in various ways. Eventually our team was divided: “Make it smaller!” “Make it bigger!”. There was a desire to add a UI slider to Options. Around that time, we also got a specific request via Nolt that we add a UI scale slider to the options - with a ton of votes in Nolt.
Necromunda: Underhive Wars Community Update
Necromunda: Underhive Wars released two days ago and we'd like to extend a huge thanks to all of you fighting in the twisted tunnels of Underhive! We've been reading and watching your feedback through social media and community hubs in the last 48 hours - thank you for sharing your thoughts about the game. This is the grassroots of future updates.

We're committed to support the game with both technical fixes and new content. The first priority is to fix the remaining technical issues. The team is already working hard on them and we plan an update improving the overall stability in the coming weeks.

GOG has it as well, currently with a "soon" tag on it. Update : It indeed says on GOG that it will be published on the 17th, too.
But there is no price given yet, and no additional stuff.
