Quick look at Deponia Doomsday

Just got a another fun title to show you guys, Deponia Doomsday is a new installment of the award-winning Deponia series developed by German studio Deadelic Entertainment. If you haven’t heard of Deponia before I think you’re gonna like it, especially if you’re a fan of games such as Monkey Island or other older 2D point and click games!

Deponia Doomsday

The game tells a story of Rufus, a guy with wild dreams of escaping the junk covered world called Deponia. The original game was entirely in German and English version of the first game was released in 2012. The last two games (Chaos on Deponia and Goodbye Deponia) were both published in German, English and some other languages.

The gameplay is really classic and fun in which the player must interact with characters and objects in different ways – including picking up items and using/combining them, activating machines to further advance the plot line. If you like nice story based games and good humor this game is for you. I’m not gonna go into details about the story in Deponia Doomsday, instead see the first 25 minutes of the game on YouTube:

Here are some screenshots:

The game obviously runs very good (running at 120 FPS for me most of the time, cutscenes are at 25 FPS) and looks gorgeous, the art style in this one really reminds me of something but I can’t really tell if it’s a TV show or a similar game. Not like it’s a bad thing.

The most surprising thing about this title is the fact that there are actually action elements in this game which is pretty uncommon for point and click genre. For example you have to open doors or switches by clicking your mouse button while someone is chasing you or move your mouse around some locks to do it right on time, it’s pretty entertaining, although I gotta admit I haven’t played point and click games in a while and this might not be new at all.

Deponia Doomsday is available in German, English, French, Spanish, Portuguese-Brazil and Russian. I think there will be some more added in the future considering the original had Polish language for example.

Thanks to Games Rocket for providing me with a copy of the game for testing!

Brütal Legend finally comes to PC! \m/

Brutal Legend PC

I loved this game on the PS3, if you’re a metal-head and a Jack Black fan you should really buy this asap. The game is fun, with rich humor and many stars like Ozzy or Lemmy. Seriously if you wanna have fun GTA-style and laugh at stupid jokes or charge the enemy with head bashing metal-heads buy this now. Fuck the price differences, just get it, it’s worth it!

However I have no idea if the port is good or not but I hope it is! The game is currently 25% off on Steam, prices are different depending on region.

Valve Pushes Out Half-Life For Linux

Valve has ported Half-Life to Linux. If you already own Half-Life on Steam just open it up on Linux and you can download it without any additional fees.

If you didn’t buy the game a decade ago, Valve still sells Half-Life on Steam for a price of $9.99 (in USA). The Linux port of this game, which is powered by the “GoldSrc” engine (a heavily-modified Quake engine), is currently considered beta.

Valve will release its own console with Linux based Steam on board

Steam Big Picture Mode

At last night’s Video Game Awards, Gabe Newell confirmed the company’s plans to sell its own living room PC that could compete with next-generation consoles from Sony and Microsoft.

The biggest revelation is that Valve seems set to release its own complete hardware and software solution. Newell says that he expects companies to start selling PCs designed for the living room next year and that Valve will create its own distinct package.

Newell suggests that the company will create its own carefully managed PC ecosystem that’s distinct from the one offered by other hardware partners. He also tells Kotaku that “our hardware will be a very controlled environment,” and that some people will want a “turnkey” solution for their living room.

But Valve doesn’t reap any income from the sale of hardware that runs its platform or the software it hosts, and the company doesn’t control Windows, which is the most popular platform among computers running Steam.

Newell stopped short of saying that the company was building a Linux-based Steam OS, but he reportedly says that the next step for the company’s living room operation is to enable Big Picture on Steam for Linux.

For now we only know that Valve expects some hardware to show up sometime next year but their intent to compete in the living room in a big way is no longer a secret.

Steam Greenlight announced!

Steam Greenlight
Valve’s approval process have long been subject to criticism, claiming it is very hard for indie developers to get their games released on Steam. Today valve announced the release of Steam Greenlight. It is scheduled for release August 30 (keep in mind though, that this is Valve-time, so the release date will likely be some time later).

This will allow publishers to post information, videos and screenshots from games. The public can then give feedback, and vote on the games they want to be released on Steam. If a game gets enough votes, Valve will release it. This will allow a lot of indie games to circumvent Valve’s approval process. Recently Valve denied the 3DS success “Mutant Mudds” a steam release, and also the hugely successful “Aquaria” was first refused.

Hopefully this new approval system will make it easier for indie developers to get their games out on Steam. In the long run this may lead to more great games to be developed, as it will make it easier to have games published on Steam, which have a large market share when it comes to digitally downloadable games.
