Sorry Everyone, 'Pathfinder Adventures' is Delayed at Least Until April 28th

I know, everyone's been anxiously waiting for Pathfinder Adventures for some time, but we'll have to wait for (hopefully) just a few more days until we get the game on our devices. After delaying the game for about a month in order to take beta feedback under consideration, the developers are pushing the game release from April 26th to (tentatively) April 28th. This delay is simply for the developers to polish the game a bit more before releasing it to all of us. Personally, I have no issue with developers deciding to delay in order to offer a better product because the App Store can be brutal; if you release a buggy game, well, you don't get a second chance at a first impression and with so many games coming out each day, it's hard to keep players' attention as is...

'Five Nights at Freddy's' Creator Scott Cawthon is Teasing 'Sister Location', but is it a Spin-off or a Sequel?

After trying to - unsuccessfully - move away from Five Nights at Freddy's [$2.99] games, it looks like Scott Cawthon is back to his old tricks if the teaser on his webpage is to be believed. If you remember, Cawthon released FNAF World, an bright and happy RPG using FNAF characters, but it all went very sour very quickly to the point where Cawthon had to pull the game from Steam. Now, according to a teaser posted on his webpage (which has been his favorite way of promoting his games), we should be getting a game much closer to the original FNAF games. The teaser shows an animatronic face that looks a bit like Bonnie and "Sister Location - There was never just one" written across the screen...




Check Out Two Level Playthrough Videos for Gorgeous Upcoming Platformer 'Le Parker - Sous Chef Extraordinaire'

During GDC last month I was able to sit down and try out an early version of Le Parker - Sous Chef Extraordinaire, an atmospheric platformer from developer Play Pretend that looked to hit all the exact right notes in terms of things I enjoy in a platforming game. It had a lighthearted story about a chef trying to retrieve his recipe for the world's lightest desert (it's so light it literally floats), a moody and sophisticated color palette, killer pixel art with lots of advanced graphical features, and most importantly of all a perfect "feel" for the movement and jumping through the game. It's been one of my most anticipated games since! Well, Play Pretend is wrapping up work on Le Parker and recently they've posted two level playthrough videos giving us a glimpse at the game in action. ..

'Final Meteor' Looks Like a Fun JRPG-Inspired Clicker

If the world's gonna keep making clickers, I might as well keep talking about them. I'm a sucker for retro-inspired games, you might have noticed. But still, Final Meteor looks like it's up my alley. This game will have you clicking and building up your idle generators to fight all sorts of enemies, all in a style similar to 8-bit JRPGs. You'll upgrade your equipment, spells, and abilities to help take on the enemies and bosses, as well as your tapping endurance. Check out the trailer:..

Kiloo's MOBA-Inspired PvP Battler 'Spellbinders' Gets New Cinematic Trailer Ahead of Launch Next Week

We got our first glimpse at Kiloo and Funday Factory's MOBA-inspired PvP battler Spellbinders during GDC last month, and then again when they released a gameplay trailer at the beginning of this month. Today another new trailer has hit, this time more of a humorous cinematic trailer that introduces some of the characters and units in the game. Thing along the lines of all those funny Clash of Clans commercials that would run all the time a while back. Check it out...

If you've been checking out our Upcoming Games Forum thread at any time during the last couple of years, you've probably seen Happymagenta's Joan Mad Run, or Project "Joan", pop up on the front page quite often. The thread has been around since 2013, and while there were plenty of updates initially, we hadn't really heard much during 2015. Well, good news since the developers popped in the thread to let everyone know that the game has been submitted to Apple for review, so barring any Apple shenanigans, we should get the game in a couple of weeks or thereabouts...

Ludoko's Unique Dodging/Reflecting Arcade Game 'Outdodge' is Coming Next Week

A little more than a year ago, we sat down with Ludoko Studios during GDC 2015 and took a look at their unique arcade dodging/reflecting game Outdodge. At that time, Ludoko expected the game needed maybe another couple of months of work before release. Boy were they wrong! As it turned out, they spent the past year really polishing Outdodge to a freakish shine, which should be a good thing for potential players. They're finally done with all that polishing though, and expect to launch Outdodge sometime early next week. Check out this brand new trailer...

Command an Army of Dinosaurs Against Cavemen in 'Dino Bash'

Tilting Point and Pokoko Studio are bringing their game of caveman and dinosaur strategy worldwide to the App Store next week on April 28th. Dino Bash will have you commanding an army of dinosaurs, trying to fight off those dastardly humans by strategically deploying your dino troops, and using manually-fired projectile weapons to protect your egg. It's castle defense, but dinosaurs can't build castles – the tyrannosaurus rex's short stubby arms are more there for show – but they got something to protect...

'Hungry Shark World' Finally Launching Worldwide May 5th

Back in December, Ubisoft soft-launched a brand new game in the Hungry Shark series called Hungry Shark World. It featured the most impressive graphics for the series to date, the largest open-world environments to date, and the largest cast of unique sharks to unlock and wreak havoc with. It seemed great! There was only one problem: Nobody knew when the game would be launching worldwide. That changes today, however, as Ubisoft has released a brand new teaser along with a worldwide release date of May 5th for Hungry Shark World...

'The Elder Scrolls: Legends' Gameplay Details Revealed in New Video

Back at E3 last year, Bethesda announced their collectable card game, The Elder Scrolls: Legends. Speculation ran wild about when the game would be coming, as well as how it would be played. "When" is still super ambiguous, as Bethesda has mentioned that it'll be a surprise release with another tiny tease that they're getting closer. Today they revealed the following gameplay video, which briefly details the "how," showing a bit of the basic core concept, with further information in a followup blog post:..

NetEase's 'Tome of the Sun' Will Let You Dungeon Crawl in a Duck Outfit

Have you ever wanted to go dungeon crawling with an army of battle pets, while wearing a duck outfit? Of course you have, you're a rational human being. Then, you'll be glad to know that NetEase is set to satisfy your ducky desires by releasing Tome of the Sun in western markets on April 28th. This hack 'n slash game features chibi characters and tap controls, along with a whole host of character customizations – including the aforementioned duck outfit. And battle bets that go into battle for you. But while it might be adorable, it will feature tons of dungeon crawling with large numbers of damage to deal out to your hapless opponents...

State of Play's Paint Splattering Pinball Game 'INKS' Launching May 5th

Back in February, Lume [$1.99] and Lumino City [$4.99] developer State of Play announced INK, a stylish mashup of pinball and painting and puzzles. However, due to its similarity to Zack Bell's Steam platformer also called INK, State of Play slightly tweaked the name of their release and it's now known as INKS. Got it? Good. Anyway, this gorgeous game finally has a release date, May 5th, and an official trailer. Check it out...

Rally Racing Sim 'Rush Rally 2' Launching Sometime Next Month

We've had a thread brewing in our forums for the upcoming Rush Rally 2 for a while now, and we just heard this morning that the game is complete and they're trying to figure out a launch date. While things firm up, the developers are saying they hope to release the game sometime in May, but aren't really getting specific beyond that just yet. There is, however, a brand new trailer which looks really awesome:..

The Free to Play 'Monster Hunter Explore' Soft-Launches in Canada

While the beloved Monster Hunter Freedom Unite remains broken and unavailable on the App Store, Capcom is moving ahead with the series on mobile and has just soft-launched their free to play'd out version of the game called Monster Hunter Explore. The game has been out in Japan for a while, and our own Shaun Musgrave went hands-on with that version last October, and actually found it surprisingly enjoyable. It's certainly much more streamlined than the notoriously complex main games in the series, and is obviously geared for a broader, more casual audience, but Monster Hunter Explore manages to capture the core aspects of what make the Monster Hunter games so fun in the first place. ..

'Metal Slug' Inspired Action Platformer 'Zombie Hunter: Death to the Undead' Hitting this Thursday

Everybody's pretty much had their fill of zombie games, myself included, but I'm making an exception for Zombie Hunter: Death to the Undead, which is releasing this Thursday from Yodo1 Games. Why make an exception? Because Zombie Hunter is an action-platformer-shooter that channels the soul of Metal Slug, one of my all-time favorite series. I mean how could you NOT want to hop into a bad ass mech suit and blast the crap out of everything with an arsenal of awesome weapons? Check out the trailer for Zombie Hunter...

'Bastion' and 'Transistor' Developer Supergiant Games Announce Third Game 'Pyre'

Supergiant Games doesn't release games often, but when they do the world stops and takes notice. Their breakout hit was 2011's Bastion [$4.99], which first launched on Xbox Live Arcade but made its way to iOS about a year later. Then there was 2014's Transistor [$9.99], which received similar critical praise and also made its way to iOS about a year after its original release. So today Supergiant has announced their third game, a gorgeous party-based RPG called Pyre, and I just can't help but think (and pray) that this one will follow in the footsteps of its predecessors and we'll be playing it on iOS in about a year. A pie in the sky prediction? Maybe. But regardless of if that ends up being the case or not, I'll take any excuse to share this beautiful trailer for Pyre...

Square Enix's "Project: Rising" Turns out to Be the Free to Play Social RPG 'Samurai Rising'

Last week we posted a vague Square Enix teaser for something called Project: Rising, with promises that we'd hear more about the game on the 19th. Well, turns out I was the only one to accurately guess that the reveal today was... just going to be another trailer. (I've played this whole Squeenix teaser thing a time or two before.) Anyway, Project: Rising is actually apparently the code name for the upcoming Square Enix free to play RPG Samurai Rising. Check it out:..

'Crashing Season' Should Release Globally Next Month, Launch Trailer Looks Great

Crashing Season, the upcoming 3D closed-area runner, seems to hit all the right buttons. Great, award-winning visuals, quirky and cute characters, and physics-based gameplay that lets you play as various animals taking revenge on all the evil hunters and their bosses for having destroyed the animals' money vault. In the game you try to survive as long as possible while completing various challenging missions in diverse worlds, all the while using boosts, power-ups, and little helpers and equipping your animal characters with fancy gear...

Check Out Some New Screens from 'Demon's Rise 2: Path to Damnation'

Last summer's Demon's Rise - Conquest of the Deep [$2.99] was a surprisingly fun turn-based strategy title from a teensy tiny developer called Wave Light Games. Given its huge number of playable classes, large scale battles, and insane amount of loot it's fair to say that Demon's Rise was an ambitious project, and it certainly was rough around the edges. That said, it was entertaining as heck, and allowed you to band together a ragtag group of good guys to take out the evil forces in the game's universe. But what if you don't want to be the good guy? Enter Demon's Rise 2 - Path to Damnation. Originally announced back in November, it's a turn-based strategy game of similar ilk to its predecessor, but it lets you play as all the bad guys. Today Wave Light Games has posted some updated screens for Path to Damnation, and it's looking awesome so far...

Popular Clicker RPG 'Crusaders of the Lost Idols' Heading to Mobile

Codename Entertainment's web game Crusaders of the Lost Idols launched on Kongregate.com in July of last year, and has gone on to become quite popular since. The biggest thing to set it apart from other clicker/idle RPGs was its party formation system, which sees you deciding the placement of your party members with special bonuses for pairing up certain members in certain ways. Today Codename has announced that Crusaders of the Lost Idols is heading to mobile this summer with the help of publishing partner Kongregate. Here's a couple of early screens of the mobile version taken from Codename's website...
