Last Oasis – Early Access

Donkey Crew announced today that Last Oasis will be available as Steam Early Access today.

And there will also be a week-long 17% discount, putting the game at  $29.99. So while you are staying at home you can still visit some interesting world.

The trailer honestly looks really nice!

But let’s talk about the story:
Last Oasis is a Nomadic Survival MMO. Earth has apparently stopped rotating, and the last human survivors need to outrun the sun.
Only a narrow band of space between the hot and cold halves of the planet has conditions that can support life. This band moves at the pace of the planet’s rotation around the Sun, and all life on Earth must migrate with it to survive. In order to keep moving, the remnants of humanity have built nomadic machines, and a walking city called Flotilla. 

You can play the game in solo or as a clan, do some melee combat and because it is a player-driven economy, you will need to trade. That also means gathering resources, craft equipment and build your Walkers (your machine, adaptable for travel, harvesting or combat). 

Did I mention that every Nomad owns a grappling hook? yeah, that is pretty cool too. 

 

Life is Strange 2 free demo

Square Enix just announced that a free demo of Life Is Strange 2 is currently available on Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC (Steam).

Not a bad thing if you do not know what to do and would like to have a try to decide if you want to play the full game or not!

As a reminder, Life is Strange 2 tells the story of two brothers, 16-year old Sean and 9-year old Daniel Diaz, who have to flee their home in suburban Seattle after a tragic event that changes their lives forever. Further complicating matters is the manifestation of an exciting new telekinetic power that has far-reaching implications for Sean and Daniel and puts pressure on the relationship between them.

 

Down the Rabbit Hole, a VR adventure!

If you like Lewis Carroll’s classic “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland”, and if you have a VR headset, then you should definitely have a look at Down the Rabbit Hole.

The game is from Cortopia Studios, and as you can imagine, it puts you inside Wonderland. It is apparently a prequel, where you also play a girl trying to find your lost pet Patches… and also your way home. There will be many twists and turns but also puzzles and secrets.

It honestly looks really fun and it is interesting to be able to visite Wonderland and all those strange characters in 3D Virtual Reality.

Down the Rabbit Hole is available on  Oculus QuestOculus RiftSteam and VIVEPORT, and launches on PlayStation®VR in early April, for the price of $19.99 USD.

The first episode of the Council is now free to play for all players on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC! And that is good news when you have to stay at home!

The game is developed by Cyanide Studio and published by Focus Home Interactive, which gave us some very nice games last year, such as Vampyr, A plague tale: Innocence or Greedfall.

In The Council Episode 1: The Mad Ones, you set off on your journey with Louis de Richet on Lord Mortimer’s private island, in an attempt to discover the fate of your missing mother before it’s too late. You will be joined by several high-profile guests, including Napoleon Bonaparte and President of the United States of America, George Washington. Because .. well, why not.
