⚔️๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿ€ Hero U : Rogue To Redemption | Review | Nintendo Switch | "Hero U Combines Old School Point n Click Adventure Style Gameplay with a Harry Potter Style Storyline" ⚔️๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿ€ @SilesiaGames #GameDev #IndieGames #PointNClick

Silesia Games brings us Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption and manages to somehow effortlessly combine old school point n click adventure style gameplay with an intriguing Harry Potter esque storyline which is set around a small but perfectly formed set of memorable characters and on the switch I feel that this game really comes into its own.

Hero-U is a spiritual sequel to a game series that was released in the ‘90s called Quest for Glory and after playing Hero-U Rogue To Redemption I’m intrigued by the Quest For Glory anthology of video games as I missed those titles the first time around.

Game Title: Deep Sixed
Platform Reviewed: PC (Steam)
Developer: LRDGames Inc.
Rating: Ice Cool
Deep Sixed is one of the most unique and fun video games that I’ve played in a little while and the only real downside is that it’s so well-designed that its specific nature may be off-putting for some, but those that click with it will find an absolute gem of a gem that will capture their imagination for a long time to come.

Do you remember the times of video game copyright protection that came packaged with the video game?

The media of the time was floppy disks and cassette tapes which were mega easy to copy. 

This obviously led to a playground culture of disk and tape swapping as one kid would have the latest video game and would be willing to sell copies for a quid.

Thimbleweed Park - PC

I’ve had the pleasure of the Thimbleweed Park video game in my life for the past two weeks and I knew that when it came to collecting my thoughts it would take lots of self-discipline to align everything I wanted to say without gushing too much about how great this game is…….

BUT….

Can I just start by saying that I'm pleased to say that this game is great!

Bear With Me: Episode 1 - PC
Exordium games is a Croatian video games studio founded in 2014, their website shows that they have released six video games in the space of three years and all seem to be of varying genres. I must admit that I haven’t had the fortune to play their other titles (although some definitely caught my eye) and so this is my first experience with the developer.
Within the first few moments of being given Bear With Me to review, I knew I’d be in safe hands when the launch trailer music reminded me of soundtrack to the mighty 7th Guest. Also, being a sucker for point and click adventure games with a self-aware Noir feel (Tex Murphy, Grim Fandango, Gemini Rue etc.) my hopes were instantly raised and after playing the game for some time I can safely say that those hopes were met and indeed, surpassed.

☆Game Of The Day "The Secret Cove"☆ @CheekySprite #GamersUnite #PointAndClick

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On


The Secret Cove, Cheeky Sprite, Point And Click

Today's Game Of The Day is The Secret Cove By Cheeky Sprite Studios
 
We were drawn to this lovely looking point n click by the smart in browser game used to promote the upcoming game in 2014
 
The Guys from Cheeky Sprite have said the following:
 
 
"In 2014 we will be releasing a point & click adventure game ‘The Secret Cove’
 
The game will be based on the stunning scenery and locations from across the (UK) Cornish county.
 
There are so many well known locations to choose from and also some real hidden gems.  
 
Lots of research is going into the locations we select and incorporate to really fit with the storyline."
 
 
We like the idea of basing an adventure game on the wonderful coastal landscapes of the Cornish County as we think there aren't enough games that portray the UK within their gameplay.
 
For those who have never experienced the wonderful Cornish County, this will be a real treat and for those know the beauty of that area of the UK will be eager to experience such a novel experience.
 
 
 
Cheeky Sprite will be releasing the game across Android, iOS and Windows. It feels like the mobile platforms (especially tablets) would really suit this game.
 
We can't wait to see and play the finished article as it will feature a Cornish Smuggling Theme and storyline. We love this type of game and the point and click are truly one of our fave genres of all time.
 
We will keep you all updated with progress on this cool looking and sounding game as soon as we get it!

Games Freezer - KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN OF THE WEEK #1 - @dropsytheclown #gamedev

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On

Dropsy The Clown - KickStarter Campaign

Don't Make Dropsy Cry!
 
A new GAMESFREEZER feature sees us take a look at a Kickstarter Campaign that really excites us here at The Freezer...

Dropsy The Clown is billed as a Surreal Exploration Based Adventure Game.

Dropsy Requires $25k to reach it's goal (as of 10th July 2013 it had achieved $6825 with 13 days remaining)

It caught our eye as we just LOVE point and click adventures such as Broken Sword

There's something quite different about this game though that seems to set it apart from others.

We set about discovering all there is to know about Dropsy by taking a peek at Dropsy The Clown Website & www.kickstarter.com

Here's what we discovered........

Dropsy's Unique Dialogue System

 

So What's It All About?

The game asks you to Guide a sweet but accident-prone clown through strange worlds in a fresh take on the classic point and click adventure.

Dropsy is an open world adventure game with an emphasis on surreal atmospheric elements and environmental storytelling. 

Dropsy takes major influences from  Monkey Island, Full Throttle and Grim Fandango and creates its own unique twist by placing Dropsy into a unique open ended exploration based framework.

The aim of Jay Tholen is to create an almost entirely text-free experience with colorful characters to communicate with, but the dialogue will be handled through the use of visuals. 

This is supplemented by expressive animation and some lovely looking detailed surroundings. 

 Rather than spoon feeding the player the narrative, the goal is to allow the player to discover the narrative at their own pace. 

Solutions to puzzles will emerge organically as more is learned about Dropsy's world. 

So this will hopefully eradicate those moments where you try to "USE" "SPANNER" with "HONEY" in an effort to solve a puzzle that just doesn't make sense.

As Jay Tholen puts it in one of the promo videos, "The Puzzles will be solved by having one of those EUREKA moments...."


The Story

The Story tells us of a deadly fire at Dropsy's family's circus, resulting in the tarnishing of Dropsy's image as a local hero. 

The BIG TOP tent now serves as a home for Dropsy and his family, Dropsy and his father get by through collecting scrap metal and the completion of odd jobs.

The player guides Dropsy and his dog "Eughh" on an adventure through humor, wondrous sights, and buried secrets. 

Some Bizarre & otherworldly events occur as the player discovers more about the BIG fire and Dropsy's mysterious past.

Wiithin the game there will also be the opportunity to explore Dropsy's Dream World for 10 minutes at a time when Dropsy goes to sleep, although this is entirely optional. This will enable players to discover even more about Dropsy's story if they wish to.

This sounds like a great twist on the usual adventure gameplay that we cant wait to see how it will pan out.

Overall this seems like a very different plot and gameplay than your usual adventure game fayre and we love the sound of it.

Music

Add to this the the soundtrack that will borrow from almost every relevant genre of the past 70 years!

Think Earthbound + Spaghetti Western + Anatolian rock.

We've had a listen to a sample track and it is sounding very cool and unique.

Take a listen here:  On Stolen Time

Who's Making This Game?

Jay Tholen is the guy from the USA, Florida driving this KickStarter campaign and here's his bio straight from the KickStarter Page....

"After years of relentless begging, our first computer was purchased in early 1997. My parents' tight financial situation meant that new games were a Christmas-only affair, so most of my early PC gaming experiences came out of the bargain bin. While I didn't like it then, I now appreciate that I was 'forced' to play older games. Had it not been for this I probably would've missed the entire Adventure genre.

Everything changed upon receiving a copy of Sim Tower for my Eleventh birthday. A demo of Klik & Play contained on the disc sparked a passion for game design in me that has never waned. I joined the 'klik' community shortly after and began pumping out retrospectively awful, but ultimately necessary, amateur games.

It was in these days that I met Justin, the programmer for Dropsy.

My creative gaze shifted toward music after discovering Prog Rock in my junior year of high school. This led to an intense period of consuming as many challenging, unfamiliar sounds as my little nerd ears could possibly handle. Discovering artists like Brian Eno, Albert Ayler, and Magma were important milestones for me. After graduating, I purchased my first mixer and MIDI controller and began concocting my own.

Inevitably, the two passions began to converge. In 2007 I became active in the Chiptune and VGM communities and have released Twenty-Five albums and EPs since."

We urge you to do these 4 things:

  1. Visit The KickStarter Page and pledge some $$$$ / ££££
  2. Spread the word about Dropsy on Twitter
