Weekly Dose of Gaming News: Super Heroes Academy, Superliminal & Unpacking
Hey guys! we're back for more Weekly Gaming News.
Now, can fighting crime and saving lives ever get old? Nah I doubt it, especially when we've had the Avengers and game developers to look up to. It's superhero fever for our first game.
From Strategy Forge, a brand new superhero game has just been revealed! Welcome to Superheroes Academy. It's quite different from other games in this genre mainly because it's a management and strategy game that puts players in charge of a team of up-and-coming superheroes in a dangerous world full of villains. So to all superheroes their mentors, captains, students and helpers this is a call to run the agency and academy. Run superheroes organization, build bases, develop infrastructure, hire heroes, train students but most of all help the needy and save the world!
Now if you're eager to join the big boys I suggest you add this game to your wish list as Superheroes Academy is set for release in 2022.
Move over Queen's Gambit ‘cause this game is a whole lot more complicated, bizarre and clever! Ready to tickle your brain more than what you're used to? Well you must play Superliminal.
Superliminal is a first person, forced perspective, puzzle game about escaping outlandish dream worlds by manipulating objects and perspective. Kind of like how images seem bigger when they're closer to the eyes? You get it right? Well, this game was released last year, but to mark its anniversary, they released a free update called Group Therapy. It adds a competitive multiplayer mode that will allow up to 12 players be pitted against each other through a series of randomly generated rooms.Think of it as battle royale mode in a first person puzzle game. The objective is simply to be the first one onto the exit. Maybe not that simple given the weird angles and eccentric perspectives you'll be exposed to in the arena, but surely will lead to a whole lot of fun times.
Still on the puzzling note, one does wonder when moving in and out of a place will ever be a chill experience because quite frankly it's chaotic. And no matter how you want to try and be as organized and neat as possible, it never happens. But that's where this game comes into play. Try Unpacking.
It's a Zen puzzle game about the familiar experience of pulling possessions out of boxes and fitting them into a new home. Part block fitting puzzle, part home decoration, you are invited to create a satisfying living space while learning clues about the life you're unpacking. Now, over the course of eight house moves, you're given a chance to experience a sense of intimacy with a character you've never seen and a story you're never told. It features the unpacking of a home from a single bedroom to an entire house and a meditative gameplay with no timers or scores. You can even explore environments while arranging bookshelves or fixing cutlery and the sort. There's more than one solution to where items can go so there's a great creative liberty with how you display your knick knacks. The soundtrack is by BAFTA award-winning composer and audio director, Jeff van Dyke, and I have to say it's really quite impressive.
So if you're in need of some relaxing satisfying storage management, well good news! Unpacking launched just this November 2 and is available on Steam, Humble store and as part of Xbox Game Pass for PC.
