      Weekly Dose of Gaming News: Where Cards Fall, Hell Boba Cafe & Terravit

      Weekly Dose of Gaming News: Where Cards Fall, Hell Boba Cafe & Terravit

      Hey guys, we're here to bring you more weekly gaming news.

       

       

      Have you ever heard the quote “Life is like a puzzle, it all seems a mess but when it gets fixed it looks awesome” well if not maybe you'll understand when you try playing Where Cards Fall. In the game the unnamed protagonist traverses different landscapes from forests to cities to classrooms that represent their key memories as they reminisce the events that took place in their teenage years all the way through adulthood. Often the ultimate goal of an area is to get from point A to point B using card based structures to overcome obstacles. Now that's where the challenge of translating the physicality of 3D cards onto a 2D plane comes in. You would spread decks of cards to solve challenging spatial puzzles and progress through dream-like landscapes. It attempts to tell a story with minimalist details but you can only draw vague inferences to the pantomime that's taking place on screen. You'll need to make your way towards the end of the level which is represented by a solitary card to move on towards the next one. To do so you'll be constructing houses, platforms, and buildings of varying size and heights with stacks of cards. The basics of these puzzles would need a bit of getting used to particularly with its fiddly controls on the switch but they are largely compelling brain teasers that reward your hard work with the rush of dopamine and if all else fails you can count on the ever reliable hint system that will get you out of tight spots.

       

       

      Our next game would give us the right amount of refreshment off the bat the release date is not yet known to us but the title itself just tells you that it's going to be a hit. For starters it's got Boba, enough said right? It also has really cute art and in the game, you have the ability to date demons. In Hell Boba Cafe you'll be working at a bubble tea store at the edge of hell. The thing is your customer is a local demon population. You're going to have mysterious and spooky ingredients at your disposal to make something tasty. Mind you most demons have never ordered Boba before so you'll need to figure out what they'd like. You'll have to cope with demons being tricky and very cryptic in their orders and you'll need to master conversations to do so. In summary, prepare mouth-watering Boba tea, make dialogue choices, and flirt with demon customers to build new relationships. There are over 1400 Boba combinations so get creative. 

       

       

      Lastly is this upcoming voxel sandbox game Teravit it's from Cyberstep and they already have a demo for it if you want to check it out because who doesn't love a good sandbox game right. It's a world filled with various biomes, some planes with flowers so that sounds promising right. What's interesting is that the game seems to have a more direct story compared to most sandbox games - The demon king came along and ruined everything by getting his servants to destroy the world's villages then built a bunch of castles to live in which can only mean that darkness is probably going to spread around the World. However, you've just arrived and it's your job to try and stop that however you think is possible. There is of course single-player and multiplayer but you can also just play however you want because it is a sandbox.

      Weekly Dose of Gaming News: Super Heroes Academy, Superliminal & Unpacking

      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.

      Weekly Dose of Gaming News: Playdate & You Suck At Parking

      Weekly Dose of Gaming News: Playdate & You Suck At Parking

      Hey, there I'm back for more weekly gaming news.

       

      Today we start off with a console! Sure it's something to play games on but this one's a little different. Meet the Playdate : it's a yellow square console that's the size of a post-it pad made by the developers at Panic. It's got an a button, b button, d-pad, Wi-fi, bluetooth, usb-c charging port, a headphone jack, and the coolest part i think is a crank seriously a crank on the side that you use to control the games makes you think of the play date as an upgraded form of a fidget spinner right it's got a mono speaker and reflective black and white display works as a nice low power clock when you're not using it too now let's discuss the games on this pocket size console what's so unique about this is the season a whole season is 24 free games that cater to a lot of genres however you won't get them all at once you'll start to receive two games every week for a span of 12 weeks as they are sent to you over Wifi in the works also is a play date developer site where you will also be able to make your own playdate games the software will be free to download and side loading of games directly to your play date is easy which means you can also play games other people make in between game seasons I'm not quite finished on this panic has also made a play-date stereo dock that acts as a charger a stereo bluetooth speaker and a pen holder with a matching yellow pen all yours for pre-order at $179 so shall we make it a playdate I think.

      So I got a question for you would you rather suck at racing or parking? I'd rather suck at racing and prefer to be really good at You Suck At Parking. You suck at parking is a brand new racing game from happy volcano it's like American ninja meets fast and furious meets real life I'm not even close to joking the objective is to try and park your car into spaces as cleanly as possible the spaces aren't the ones you see in regular parking lots where they're all lined up nicely these spaces are either located on a cliff or ledge even in a slant position the catch is to only stop when you're sure to park on the space if you stop you won't be allowed to start the car again and some levels will have you on limited fuel like I said real life did i mention the obstacle courses yep you'll have slippery roads boosters jump pads swinging hammers ramps and even industrial fans making your parking all the more challenging you can customize your car pull off tricks like spinning mid-air and even drift you have to remember to not go too slow as your timer will jam up ruining your score watch out for the corners too because you might find yourself flying over the edge and costing you a life there will be a real life leaderboard which lets players try to beat each other's times the visuals on this game have a cartoony feel to it and the music i have to say is impressive both of which should make the experience all the more enjoyable something to really watch out for and put on your wish list youth second parking won the dev com indie awards 2021 as well as an honorable mention at the unfold games awards this year it launches next year for PC, XBOX, Playstation and Nintendo switch hopefully with this game we all become masters at parking.

      Weekly Dose of Gaming News - Chocobo GP, Rainbow Billy & Jack Axe

      Weekly Dose of Gaming News - Chocobo GP, Rainbow Billy & Jack Axe

      Hey Everyone, this is your weekly gaming news!

      We've got a mix of features this week that you should explore for yourself! Three words for this first game: racing, final fantasy, and Switch. The title is Chocobo GP .It's a card game that looks quite a lot like Mario Kart but includes characters from across the Final Fantasy series. Other characters confirmed for the game are Sharoma and Vivi. A lot of the courses will be Final Fantasy inspired and very fitting, as you will be competing against other Final Fantasy characters. You can do this either offline or online like Mario Kart. You will use abilities to knock other racers out in the hopes to reach the finish line first. Now i know it has a lot of similarities to Mario Kart but in Chocobo GP, online tournaments are possible! Competitions with as many as 64 players can happen, the assumption is that these 64 racers will be split into eight groups of eight, with the winners qualifying for an eight person final. No specific date of release for Chocobo GP, only that it's coming to Switch by 2022.

      From one colorful feature to the next ,this is Rainbow Billy The Curse of the Leviathan, a universal coming of age story that explores very relatable themes like empathy compassion inclusion and self-identity. Hopepunk is the exact opposite of Grimdark. Hope Punk games like Rainbow Billy restore faith in the goodness of humanity and send a message that everything is going to be okay. You'll play Rainbow Billy, a fisherman who was out fishing when the evil leviathan cast a spell that washes away all color from the world of imagination. Billy, together with his rainbow-powered fishing boat, try to restore color to the world in a non-violent and empathetic way. Combat in this game equates to dialogue with different creatures. It can appear as a pong-style minigame, where specific symbols have to be hit to create your argument. Winning the creature is over means your team grows with more members to help you save other creatures and restore the world's color. You'll have 60 creatures to collect that vary from cats. walruses, and even unicorns. Rainbow Billy: The Curse of the Leviathan is now available on PS4 XBox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.
