Drinkbox's 'Severed' is Re-Confirmed for iOS, Releasing This Summer

Drinkbox Studios, perhaps best known for Guacamelee, has announced that their latest game Severed is in fact hitting iOS. Now, you might be asking "how is this news?!" The game was originally announced for mobile, right? Well, somewhere inbetween the announcement and the present, Drinkbox decided to make the game a Vita exclusive. The trick was that all reports on the game from people who played it found that it still pretty much used the touchscreen exclusively. A mobile version didn't seem impossible. And so, Severed has been reannounced for iOS specifically, along with the Wii U and 3DS. Which are both touchscreen systems as well. Android gamers, keep up hope. Here's a new trailer for the game, specifically the console versions. However, representatives for the game have specifically confirmed the iOS release, and a quote from Drinkbox co-founder Graham Smith says "The game's recent release on the Vita was well-received by critics and fans alike, and we look forward to bringing the experience to Apple and Nintendo fans."..

Adventure Company, which soft launched earlier this year, is done with testing, and is set to release this week on Thursday, June 16th. It will be free-to-play, but hey, this is 2016, games are gonna be free-to-play. And this will have MFi controller support, to boot. Check out the trailer of the game in action:..




Apple's WWDC keynote was very light on anything related to games – the most notable games-specific feature was the passing mention of "ReplayKit Live" – but the final feature, Swift Playgrounds, is a pretty cool thing Apple has set to release this fall, with a public beta available in July. It's an app that's meant to help teach kids to code through demos and games that will teach them the various facets of Swift, and provide an important introduction to coding for future generations...

'The Elder Scrolls Legends' Officially Releasing on Phones and Android, Game Coming Soon

If you're curious about The Elder Scrolls Legends, Bethesda's free-to-play card game, but have been fretting about it not releasing for phones, only for tablet, good news: Bethesda confirmed at their 2016 E3 conference that the game will be releasing on phones and Android as well. This shouldn't be a surprise, necessarily – it's similar to how Hearthstone [Free] rolled out, of course. While the game might be a better experience on tablets and desktop, people will want to play it anywhere, and having a phone version will be crucial. Though, if you assumed that a phone version was happening already, I guess the surprise is that it wasn't announced?..

Telltale Reveals 'The Walking Dead' Season Three Trailer

Telltale Games is doing another season of its breakout hit series, The Walking Dead, and they have revealed the new trailer for the third season of the game at E3. Clementine returns as a star of the new series, but a new character named Javier will play a major role as well. Telltale is saying that while Clementine returns from the first two seasons, the story is planned to be more of a standalone story from the first two. But, Telltale is planning on having decisions from the first two seasons play a role in the third season, still. Check out the teaser:..

'Bomberman' is the Latest Game to Get the 'Crossy Road' Treatment in Upcoming 'Blast Blitz'

Taking a classic game concept, giving it voxel graphics, and making it randomly generated and endless is exactly what Crossy Road [Free] did with the Frogger formula. And then Down The Mountain [Free] did it with the Q-Bert formula. And then Pac-Man 256 [Free] did it to Pac-Man. And then Shooty Skies [Free] did it to Space Invaders. And then Astro Attack [Free] also did it to Space Invaders. And then Ding Dong Delivery is hoping to do it to Paperboy. And Dude Ball is hoping to do it with pinball. And then and then… Phew! I'm sure I missed some there but anyway you get the point. Crossy Road-ifying things is all the rage, and developer Poly Pandas wants to give that same treatment to Bomberman with their upcoming game Blast Blitz. ..

Colin Lane, the twisted visionary behind Wrassling [Free] and a bunch of other fun fast-action games, is hard at work on a new game, Dunkers. Basically, think Wrassling meets Soccer Physics [$0.99] on the basketball court. You and an opponent will flail your arms about, trying to get the ball and go boomshakalaka on the hoop. You can steal the ball from your opponents's arms, and you have to time your slams so that you don't mess up. The ball starts out free at the tipoff, but don't worry – it won't go in chaotically on its own. Ya gotta throw it down, big man. And enjoy the slow-mo as you triumphantly slam the ball down into the rim...

Strategy Game 'Pirates War: The Dice King' Is Recruiting Forum Members for Its Upcoming Closed Beta

The first thing you'll probably notice about the upcoming Pirates War: The Dice King is it's whimsical, colorful art, but I think the game has plenty to offer besides good looks. The developers describe the game as a strategy game first and foremost that's plays like a Pirate-laden mix of Monopoly and Hearthstone. The game hopes to take the best aspects of property trading games like Monopoly and add the deck building and card battles of CCGs such as Hearthstone with the sole purpose of making Pirates War a dynamic experience that, hopefully, gets rid of the boring parts of Monopoly. I could explain the rules, but I think the gameplay trailer below does a good job explaining...

'Voi' is the New Minimalist Puzzler from the Developer of 'Hocus'

The creator of Rop [$0.99] and Hocus [$0.99] has another stylish, monochrome puzzle game in the works. Voi is a take on tangram puzzlers, where you must move blocks around grids in order to get them to match the given sape. But where Voi mixes things up is that each shape you place reverses the color of anything it's placed over. So, you have to solve puzzles using negative space to form the proper shapes. ..

'Dawnbringer' Gets Cool Cinematic Trailer Ahead of June 16th Launch

A couple of weeks ago, we checked out the gameplay trailer for Dawnbringer, an upcoming open-world action RPG that uses battle mechanics that are similar to mobile classic Infinity Blade. With Dawnbringer's launch looming next Thursday, developers Kiloo and Copenhagen Creators have released a brand new cinematic trailer giving us a glimpse into this game's characters and world. I'm not usually big on CGI cinematic trailers, but when they feature two warriors battling through space, continuing to fight even as they catch fire while blasting through the atmosphere, and crash landing on earth in a huge explosion, still ready to fight, well that's my kind of cinematic trailer...

The Soft-Launched 'Auto Warriors' Is Bringing Turn-Based Car Combat to the App Store

Turn-based tactical games have been definitely making a comeback on the App Store recently, with Warbits [$2.99] and Lost Frontier [$2.99] gaining plenty of acclaim. As good as those two games are, none of them has car combat, and that's where the upcoming Auto Warriors plans to step in and remedy such errors in their ways. Instead of making a strategy games with soldiers, tanks, and so on, Auto Warriors has you customizing your car, turning it into the deadliest weapon around, and then taking it out for a spin with the sole purpose of eradicating everyone else in sight.The development team consists of people who've worked on games such as Burnout Revenge, Moto GP, Guild Wars 2, and more, so they should have the know-how to turn Auto Warriors into a fun game...

Santa Ragione is adapting them to mobile and releasing them in one app. The forum thread for the game features gifs for all the games in action:..

As Promised, 'Paranormal Minis' Trailer Released Ahead of June 16th Launch

Paranormal Minis, an upcoming collaborative mobile game project from Ravenous Games and Bulletproof Outlaws, has a somewhat strange history, as we've covered here before. In a nutshell, the game was announced in 2013, then put on the shelf before getting a major design overhaul and going back into active development a year later. Then it was shelved again, until March of this year when it was resurrected yet again and finally completed with a scheduled launch date of June 16th. The problem is, after all of that, we've yet to see Paranormal Minis in action. That changes today with the release of the very first trailer...

Surreal Victorian Era Adventure Game 'The Slaughter: Act One' Coming to Mobile June 29th

The Slaughter: Act One is a very strange old-school style adventure game that launched on desktop platforms back in January, and is heading to iOS towards the end of this month on June 29th. In their email to us, developer Brainchild describes The Slaughter as "Monkey Island meets Twin Peaks" as in addition to typical point-and-click adventure stuff there's all sorts of strange surrealist things going on. The game takes place in Victorian London and you play as an investigator named Sydney Emerson who is trying to pull himself out of his own self-loathing long enough to track down a killer. You'll explore all the majestic locales of Victorian London, as well as all of its not-so-majestic locales like the slums, bars, brothels, and alleyways. Things start to get weird when Sydney starts discovering clues in his own dreams which blur the lines between subconscious and reality...

'Dead Venture' by Dogbyte Games Lets You Drive to Interesting Places and Kill Zombies in Them

Dogbyte Games has announced its next game, Dead Venture. Like some of their other games, driving is involved, but this time you'll be playing in an isometric view, driving around various landscapes trying to rescue survivors and complete various tasks, all in the name of reaching a far-off safe haven at a military base. There will be an 8-chapter story mode, along with endless survival, and time trial mode to peruse in your quest to kill zombies and save humanity. Check out the trailer, which is really just about a minute and a half of game footage:..

'Dofus Touch' Based on Long-Running MMORPG Soft Launches in Canada

Long-running French turn-based-strategy-inspired MMORPG Dofus is on its way to mobile as Dofus Touch. While this is separate from the main Dofus game on desktop, this is meant to be an adaptation for mobile. That means that the interface has been built for tablets, and the game will be on par with the 2.14 update of Dofus content-wise. Players will have to create new characters for Dofus Touch, and the game will eschew a subscription model for a more traditional mobile free-to-play business model, though Apple did just announce subscriptions for games...

'Card Wars Kingdom' Based on New 'Adventure Time' Episode Planned for July

Card Wars [$3.99], the card game based on the Adventure Time episode of the same name, proved to be a rather popular game for Cartoon Network that's actually managed to stick around the top paid charts for a while now. Now, a sequel to Card Wars is set to release this summer, with Card Wars Kingdom: The Game. The big new feature here is going to be a PvP mode where you can play against other players, to go along with tournament modes. This is set to hit in July, as part of a huge rollout of new Card Wars content...

The Cartoon Network has been giving us some really good games recently. From Card Wars - Adventure Time to Attack the Light and Flipped Out - The Powerpuff Girls, CN has been leveraging its IPs quite successfully, and its next game seems equally as promising. According to a post on our forums today, the next game from Cartoon Network and Grumpyface Studios is called Teeny Titans and is coming in June.

While the upcoming BATMAN - The Telltale Series has been getting most of the buzz when it comes to Telltale's next projects, The Walking Dead: Season 3 hasn't been too far behind. Yes, TWD is one superhero short at a time where everywhere you look you see superheroes, but the series' emotional impact and strong characters have made it a favorite among Telltale fans.
