Omnibion War takes its inspiration from classic on-rails shooters of the past such as Aces of the Galaxy, Panzer Dragoon and the Star Fox series. The game puts players into the pilot seat of a high-tech space jet that transforms into a flying mech at the touch of a button. With this high-tech military gear, they blast their way through the galaxy and take down thousands of Hellhounds one by one to prevent them from acquiring Omnibion, a dangerous ancient weapon. With various mission objectives to complete, parts of the universe to visit, types of enemies to blow to smithereens and new weapons and upgrades to unlock, the journey through the galaxy will be an intense and exciting experience with the finger on the trigger.

About the game:
5 years have passed since the victory of the Coalition of United Colonies over the Omnigans. But the fragile times of peace and prosperity were again disrupted. Once CUC allies, The Hellhounds now unleash chaos and violence throughout the galaxy. They will stop at nothing in order to gain control of Omnibion, a powerful ancient device created by the Omnigans.

Become Jaeden, ace pilot of the late “Icarus” squad and strap yourself in as you again fire up the mighty engines of the A.A.V.G. gunship. Its immense firepower and the ability to rapidly transform between a space jet and a flying mech make it the humanity’s most advanced fighting machine. Take full advantage of its destructive potential and put your pilot skills to the test against the incoming Hellhound hordes in various parts of the galaxy. Diverse mission objectives will take you to the vacuum of space, lava deserts or underwater worlds of distant planets. Load up your guns and upgrade your mech as you fight to save the galaxy once and for all!

Key Features:
• Use the transforming abilities of your A.A.V.G. (Automatic Artillery of Variable Geometry)
• Transform between a space jet or a mech, choosing the most comfortable way to face the Hellhound chords
• Take down thousands of enemies and mighty bosses, both in space and on various planets
• Complete various mission objectives – protect, destroy, rescue and more
• Gain experience points to access new weapons, upgrades and special attacks
• Enjoy the retro vibe in two game modes – rail shooter and free flight

Omnibion War is out today on Steam and other digital platforms for $6.99 / €6.99.

King's Bounty II first Developer Diary

Branching narrative and open world exploration comes in the next installment of this popular RPG series!

1C Entertainment is pulling back the veil behind the development of the upcoming fantasy strategy RPG King’s Bounty II with a new series of developer diary videos. With a 2020 launch on PC, PS4, and Xbox One on the horizon, this is the first look at core changes coming  to the franchise that are sure to excite longtime fans and newcomers to the series.

The first in the multi-part series of dev diaries explores the 3 core aspects that form King’s Bounty II’s gameplay: exploration, hero management, and tactical combat.

Watch the first installment of King’s Bounty II’s dev diary series: https://youtu.be/DQCpJ6eOBpo

This new entry in the series adds core RPG elements and a fully branching narrative adventure to the strategic combat King’s Bounty is known for. The developer team say that players can expect roughly one third of the experience to be combat with exploration, puzzles, and new characters expanding greatly on the world introduced in past installments of this in the series.

The dev diary also explores the 4 main ideals Order, Power, Finesse, and Anarchy. Players can put talent points into each of these ideals, granting different bonuses and changing how characters in the world interact with your hero. Player’s choices and quests throughout their journey shape who they are and what people think of them. A character’s disposition will directly affect how they are perceived by people in the world of Antara, leading to different outcomes throughout the entirety of the game. A bandit, for example, will respond more favorably to a follower of Anarchy than someone who upholds Order.

King’s Bounty II combat stays true to that of past games, however players can expect advancements to match modern tactics based encounters with some unique additions that are completely new to the series. Hex-based battles will play out across a 3 dimensional battlefield in the games open world setting, creating seamless transitions from exploration to combat and add purpose to placement in terrain. Army composition has also changed in King’s Bounty II, with units limits encouraging players to change their army based on the task at hand.

Following dev diary episodes will provide more details on story, combat systems, and playable characters in King’s Bounty II. For more information, head to the Steam store page or the official website KingsBounty2.com

Conglomerate 451 will exit Steam Early Access


Cyberpunk Dungeon Crawler Conglomerate 451 To Escape the Limits of Steam Early Access

Conglomerate 451 will exit Steam Early Access
}early_access_exit.game ($_CONGLOMERATE451 [‘dungeon_crawler’] + ['roguelike']) = helloworld

We are excited to announce first person cyberpunk dungeon crawler Conglomerate 451 will exit Steam Early Access on February 20, 2020.

During Steam Early Access, RuneHeads released multiple updates to Conglomerate 451 introducing new areas, enemies, and corporation bosses, updating UI, and adding exciting roguelike features such as imperfect character cloning and randomized perks. On launch, Conglomerate 451 will be updated again with a patch fixing bugs and polishing features. 

Conglomerate 451 digs deep into its grid-based, dungeon crawling RPG roots, offering players an incredible variety of technologies to explore and upgrade. Roguelike elements add weight to the smallest decisions, for your agents to make it out alive, they must leverage everything from hacking and equippable agent skills, to strategic use of tools developed by your personal R&D department.

Both 1C Entertainment and RuneHeads would like to reiterate that Conglomerate 451 is not an emergent AI bent on expanding the limits of the human vessel for its own unknowable purposes and that the game is completely benign to humanity in all ways.

As CEO of a special agency tasked with taking down the corrupt corporations that threaten sector 451 of Conglomerate city, you have access to technology that today’s top companies and governments can only dream of. From cloning to cybernization to DNA manipulation, your agents can be built from the ground up to fit mission needs.

Key Features:

  • Manage your resources - Make use of your own personal R&D department to research advanced technology, unlocking new features, powers and options for progression
  • More than just body mods - In addition to upgrading weapon and armor proficiencies, augment your body with interchangeable cyber implants that completely change your agent’s skills and utility
  • Pain and Trauma system - Even the smallest wounds can have a lasting impact. By taking damage in combat, agents risk generating permanent Traumas that will follow them between missions
  • Story or Endless Mode - It's your choice. The Story Mode brings you in a world filled by events and a war with corrupted Corporations and their propaganda. In the Endless Mode, the game will create endless content for you
  • Perks and Mutations - Your agents can acquire special skills (Perks) and obtain Mutations
  • Drugs and Disorders - buy synthetic drugs to temporarily empower your agents, with the risk that they develop Mental Disorders
  • Procedural cyber dungeons - Experience the dungeon crawling you love, mixed with future technology as you take on procedurally-generated dungeons and missions
  • If you die in the game... - Each mission could be your last thanks to agent permadeath. Consider every move, because if an agent dies in battle, they will be lost forever
  • Hack the world - Enter cyberspace mid-mission and hack your way ahead of the competition to get crucial intel and give yourself the advantage
  • Collectables and Achievements - find collectables around the dungeons and bring them to the Collector to discover the truth

IT ARRIVES! Lovecraftian horror CRPG, Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones, launches on Steam!

Go mad for this gorgeously grotesque hand-drawn tale based on the work of H.P. Lovecraft

The world is lost to ancient horrors from planes beyond. Journey from the lost town of Arkham as one of eight tragically fated character Archetypes, deep into an abyss of terror in Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones, a cosmic horror CRPG, available now for PC on Steam for $29.99 USD (24.99 EUR). Iä! Iä! Discount fhtagn! The Old Ones have granted their worshipers on Steam a 15% discount for launch week! 

Drawing directly from the works of H.P. Lovecraft, Stygian is a turn-based RPG set in a broken and mysterious world. Like classic CRPG titles, Stygian provides an open-ended narrative to unearth as characters cope with the warped reality of a world fallen to chaos.

Watch the brand-new launch trailer: https://youtu.be/TIf2coOset8

Create a character based on one of eight different archetypes pulled from the pages of 1920s pulp fiction, each with unique attributes, skills, and beliefs that provide defenses (and weaknesses) against impending mind-rending terror.

Featuring strategic, turn-based combat, players will face fanatic cultists, inhuman monstrosities, and cosmic horrors so [REDACTED FOR PUBLIC SAFETY] that leave the weak-willed gibbering. Balance physical attacks with powerful eldritch spells that have dire consequences on one’s sanity while fending off the unnatural.

Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones is out now on Steam. Find out more about Stygian and the team behind the game on the Stygian website, Twitter, and Facebook.

Key Features:
  •  A hand drawn 2D world reflecting Lovecraft's themes of cosmic horror and dread.
  • Enemies, environments and storylines inspired by Lovecraft’s iconic original works. Take part in quests inspired by Lovecraft’s most beloved stories and see them play out according to your own decisions and role-playing style.
  • Choose from 8 main character Archetypes, each with its own backgrounds and specialties.
  •  A host of weird companions to accompany you on your ill-starred journey: the lonely, antediluvian 'Outsider', a fallen soldier of the Great War reanimated by Herbert West. Recruit these and other outlandish beings to your crew.
  • Your character's Sanity and mental state influences their available dialogue options, offering both advantages and hindrances. Sometimes it pays to be mad in a world gone mad!
  • Stygian's Belief System determines how your characters cope with the warped reality of the new Arkham, as well as the rate at which they regenerate lost Sanity. Belief Systems also offer unique dialogue options, expanding the breadth of role-playing possibilities.
  • A new kind of spell system which sometimes takes more than it gives. Being a master of the occult is not as simple as flinging colored missiles from your fingertips. The black magic of Stygian is potent but may cost you your mind, your health, and possibly even more.
  • Strategic, turn-based combat from a 2D perspective, similar to the classic Heroes of Might and Magic games.
  • The struggle in Stygian is not to save the world, for that battle is lost already. Pursue your own goals in these end times: salvation, vendetta, or perhaps something darker.
