‘Blair Witch’ Heads Back To The Woods With Anticipated Video Game Release

One of the highlights from the Xbox E3 Briefing, especially if you’re a movie fan, is the announcement of the upcoming game Blair Witch. In partnership with Lionsgate, the Bloober Team revealed that the first-person psychological horror game Blame Witch is in development.

The 1996 set project, which places gamers in the terrifying environment of the Black Hills Forest, centers on the investigation of a young boy’s disappearance.

“We are thrilled, and honestly a little scared, to bring all players, especially fans of Blair Watch, back into the haunted woods,” said Bloober Team CEO Piotr Babieno. “It is genuinely an honor to be working on such a hair-raising, paradigmatic experience, which defined so many of our lives!”

Blair Witch hits Xbox One and PC on August 30, 2019.

Nikola Tesla Inspired Horror Game ‘Close To The Sun’ Lands A May Release

Close To The Sun, a first person horror game from publisher Wired Productions and game studio Storm in a Teacup, arrives on PC May 2 on the Epic Games store. The title will also come out later this year on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Set in the 19th century where futurist Nikola Tesla chased his passion for changing the world, Close to the Sun finds gamers aboard a colossal vessel named the Helios. Though it was initially a craft aimed to further scientific research, it is now filled with a haunted atmosphere. The smell of rotting flesh as well as a sign that says “Quarantine” are just two signs that this vessel may not be a safe haven. Check out the trailer and tell us what you think!

Gamers who pre-purchase Close to the Sun on EpicGames.com will receive an exclusive, limited edition digital artbook.

Deck Building RPG ‘Monster Slayers’ Hits Nintendo Switch In April

Monster Slayers, a deck building RPG adventure that employs an immersive card-based battle system, hits Nintendo Switch on April 5. As players create a hero to join the Monster Slayers Guild, they undergo a quest through the dangerous Northern Valley to defeat an all powerful villain named Harbinger to become a true Monster Slayer. Developed by Nerdook Productions (Reverse Crawl), the game is inspired by Peter Whalen’s inspired roguelike game Dream Quest.

Gamers battle undead goblins, outlaws, and mighty dragons during the adventure, and they can choose 12 different classes to choose from as they start their journey (Rogue, Ranger, Knight, Barbarian, Cleric, Wizard, Assassin, Beastmaster, Apothecary, Brute, Monk, and Necromancer). To stave off monotony, the developers ensure that each play through is different as each enemy encounter and loot discovery are randomly generated.

Handcrafted Adventure Mystery ‘Trüberbrook’ Readies For Steam And Console Debut

A game that claims to have the narrative echoes of Stranger Things, The X-Files, and Twin Peaks is not one to be ignored, and hopefully adventure game Trüberbrook lives up to its bold proclamations.

Gamers take on the role of Hans Tannhauser, an American scientist who wins a European vacation in the late 1960s. Initially enamored with the remote German village of Trüberbrook, Hans realizes that this sleepy environment holds a wealth of mystery and possible danger. 

Each scene in the game, according to the developers, were staged with actual physical lighting. The handcrafted nature of Trüberbrook is evident in the trailer, and considering the title achieved its Kickstarter goal of $200,000 in just 30 hours, this title should have a following.

Trüberbrook hits PC, Mac, and Linux on March 12, with an April 17th release on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One. Check out the trailer and tell us what you think!

Action Platformer ‘Odallus: The Dark Call’ Targets Nintendo Switch Release In February

Even with the ever evolving graphics that are part of the videogame universe, the need for 8-bit driven titles is real for gamers of all ages. The critically acclaimed PC title Odallus: The Dark Call, developed by indie studio JoyMasher, is set for a PS4 and Xbox One release this spring. Nintendo Switch owners will be able to download the title on February 8 with a 20% discount launch for a limited time.

The title has gamers playing Haggis, a battle weary warrior who enters the fray once again to rescue his son from Darkness. Along with boss battles, the action platformer has over eight hours of gameplay, 50 plus enemies, eight levels and, of course, 8-bit graphics. Growing up in the 1980s, 8-bit gaming was a big part of my life, and games like Odallus: The Dark Call pays loving homage to that era while also attempting to carve out a path of its own. I’ll be reviewing this title on either PS4 or the Xbox One, but if you’ve already played the game (or want to comment on the trailer), we would love to hear your thoughts!
