Developer Beamdog is working on a new Baldur's Gate game and they're planning on unveiling all the grisly details sometime in late spring, according to a new post on their blog. Beamdog has made mention of a mysterious new game dubbed "Adventure Y" in the past, which will be a brand new Baldur's Gate game that bridges the gap between the original Baldur's Gate and Baldur's Gate II. This new game will use the team's Infinity Engine, which powers the contemporary remakes of Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition [$9.99], Baldur's Gate II [$9.99 (HD)] and Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition [$9.99]. While no other details exist for Adventure Y, there are some images that were "leaked" in the Beamdog forums that may or may not portray the actual game...

The Stylish 'Yak Dash: Horns of Glory' Releases on January 22nd

Yak Dash: Horns of Glory is a game that's high up on my list of games to be excited about in part because the game has a really unique theme and has a nifty look to it. Well, we now have a release date for this yak-racer: January 22nd. The game will release for $1.99, and feature 17 total levels to race through. UK-based producer Baconhead provides the soundtrack for the game, claiming "inspiration from 1970s exotica records and Shoji Yamashiro's Akira soundtrack." Check out some gameplay footage below, which is actually only lightly-edited so you can see how the flow of the game works:..

'Bowling Central' Will Deliver Many Ways to Bowl Next Week

Indian developer Rolocule Games' latest title is on the way next week, January 15th, and it's a bit of a spin on bowling, with Bowling Central. The game consists of three modes. There's a classic mode where you can just play a normal game of bowling in 3, 6, or the standard 10 frames, using swipe controls to launch the ball and curve it. The main mode is a level-based affair, where it's about getting as high a score as possible given certain challenges, including obstacles placed in the lanes that must be dodged in order to hit the pins. These levels feature a 3-star system, except instead of stars, they're golden pins...

'Satellina' is a Puzzling Survival Game Coming Soon

Developer Moon Kid has just announced their new game Satellina, a sort of combination of an arena survival game like Helix [$2.99], mixed with puzzle elements. The goal is to move your + icon avatar around the level, collecting the green particles on-screen. There are yellow and red particles as well, and these need to be avoided. Once all the green particles are collected, the yellow particles turn green, and the red turn yellow. As such, the goal is to clear the screen of particles entirely. There's also a speedrunning component as levels come grouped in suites of 5 each, and the total time to complete a suite is tracked. ..

'Dungerous' from the Creator of 'Micro Miners' Promises Puzzles, Dungeons, and Puns

We live in wonderful times. There are now so many games involving dungeons that developers feel the need to make puns on the word 'dungeon' in the titles of their games in order to stand out. There's Enter the Gungeon in the PC/console realm, but what about mobile? Don't we deserve a dungeon pun game of our own? Well, JP Sarda, creator of Micro Miners [$1.99], is throwing his hat into the dungeon with his upcoming Dungerous. Dungeorful! Check out a brief video of the game below that shows off some of the core gameplay and the feedback effects:..

NimbleBit, the long-time iOS developers who have made several beloved games and also were once quoted as saying "YOLOSWAG" in response to an inquiry, have a new game in the works, Letterpad. While NimbleBit has definitely made word games before, with the rad Textropolis [Free] way back in the day, this appears to take a similar starting point of having a grid of 9 letters, and finding words related to a particular topic. There appear to be some community features as far as word lists go, and a visual style that recalls the color scheme of Golfinity [Free] to a certain degree...

Team17's 'Flockers', a Sheepy Take on 'Lemmings', Briefly Available on iOS

Developer Team17 has released fifty billion Worms games over the years. Just trust me that that number is totally accurate, and don't go fact-checking or anything, OK?. Anyway, you'd think that as much as they must love their Worms they have probably been dying to make something at least slightly different. That's the feeling I get about their latest game Flockers, which launched on consoles and PC last September and today briefly found its way to iOS. The game has been taken down as of this writing, and no word on if it was an accidental launch or if there was some other major problem. But, we can at least say that sometime soon we'll have a version of Flockers on iOS...

'Taichi Panda' Coming this Month, New Character Trailer Released

Back in November when Snail Games announced their upcoming character action game Taichi Panda would be releasing before the end of the year, it looks like they were a bit off the mark. Not too far off though, as today they've revealed that the game is on track to release in January. They don't have a specific date in January, but I'll take what I can get. They've also released a new trailer for the game, showing off the three playable characters in Taichi Panda...

'Need for Speed: No Limits' Will Be Free to Play

Following news of how few people paid for Monument Valley, is the somewhat inevitable announcement that the upcoming Need for Speed: Most Wanted (which we posted about yesterday) will in fact be free to play:..

'WWE Immortals' Releases January 15th, New Art Shows Superhero Style Wrestlers

Last month the WWE announced it had partnered up with Warner Bros. Interactive to create WWE Immortals, a free to play mobile game that would feature "epic Superstar battles in a fantastically re-imagined WWE world." On this week's Monday Night Raw and on various social media, WWE has further announced that WWE Immortals is releasing January 15th, and they've released several pieces of character art from the game that show reimagined versions of popular WWE Superstars. Check out John Cena, Sheamus, the Bella Twins and Big Show as WWE Immortals characters...

New 'Need for Speed: No Limits' Teaser Trailer Released

Back in November, a new Need for Speed game was outed by way of a sticker on the front of Ken Block's heavily modified 1965 Ford Mustang rally car. Not the most traditional way of announcing a game, but that's besides the point. The name of the game was Need for Speed: No Limits, and later that month EA officially confirmed its existence and that it would be a new mobile game for iOS and Android. There still aren't a ton of details about the game, but today a new official trailer was released showing some in-game footage, and it looks quite spectacular...

'Mos Speedrun 2' Trailer Comes Swiftly Swinging into the World

Physmo's Mos Speedrun [$0.99] is a notable speedrunner platformer that games like Mikey Shorts [$1.99] owe a particular gameplay debt to. Physmo worked on the interesting Ghost Racer [$0.99] and Physmo's Nick worked on The Dungeoning for PC, but fear not, speedrun fanatics: Mos Speedrun 2 is well in the works. The developers teased an early screenshot last year, but just today have released a trailer for the upcoming game, showing off some of what you can expect from this sequel:..

'1-bit Ninja Remix Rush' Coming this Thursday

It sure is nice to see kode80, aka solo developer Ben Hopkins, back in action on the App Store. After taking a hiatus for the past couple of years, kode80 pushed out an update in December to its unique perspective-altering platformer 1-bit Ninja [$2.99 / Free] adding some much needed current iOS support, Universal support for iPads, and native support for all the various iOS screen sizes. It was one of my favorite games when it originally launched back in the summer of 2011, and the latest update was one of our favorites of this past year. This week kode80 is releasing a new 1-bit Ninja spinoff called 1-bit Ninja Remix Rush. As you might have guessed, it's a procedurally generated endless take on the 1-bit Ninja formula, something I've always thought would work quite well. Here's a few screens...

'Five Nights at Freddy's 3' is in the Works

The Five Nights at Freddy's phenomenon continues, as Polygon has confirmed that a third entry in the popular horror game series is currently in production from developer Scott Cawthon. If you visit Cawthon's official website you'll be greeted with the teaser image seen below. However, reaching out via email will only end with an auto-reply where Cawthon urges "Please do not email me asking any questions about it. NO questions about FNaF3 will be read or answered!" It sounds like he'd really prefer to keep this one under wraps in order to preserve any surprises that are in store for fans of the series...

'Wheel and Deal' is an Upcoming Neon-Drenched Arcade Game

Robote Games has announced a release date and released a trailer for their upcoming 80's-inspired and neon-drenched arcade game, Wheel and Deal. You control a constantly-accelerating car in a gridded cyber-verse, with the cops constantly on your tail. Thankfully, your car automatically shoots out balls of energy that can take out your pursuers, and getting you points – this is the 80's, after all. The enemy cars will deal you damage by crashing into you, and by shooting you if they have shots themselves, with a number of different car models coming after you. This is all about getting high scores, with more dollars, the game's points, earned for each kill, and dollars being used to buy better cars...
