Fortnite: Always Fantabulous Harley challenges – alternate Harley Quinn skin
Other / 6. 2. 2020

The Birds of Prey x Fortnite crossover event is now live, and there’s a bunch of new challenges to complete. The Harley Quinn skin is now available in the Fortnite store and there are new Always Fantabulous Harley challenges you can complete while wearing it. Once three of the Harley Quinn challenges are complete, you’ll unlock a new variation of the skin from the Birds of Prey movie. Season 1 has been extended to February 20, so you’ve got plenty of time to complete these challenges, as well as the existing Overtime Challenges. Fortnite: Birds of Prey challenges As this is Harley we’re talking about, one of the challenges involves hitting people with your pickaxe – preferably a mallet if you have one. The others involve placing in the Top 30 or above in Solo, Duos or Squads and hitting weak points, which are the coloured circles that appear when you hit an object. Place Top 30 in Solo, Duos or Squads (0/1) Place Top 20 in Solo, Duos or Squads (0/1) Place Top 10 in Solo, Duos or Squads (0/1) Hit weak points (0/100) Deal damage with pickaxes to opponents (0/100) Where to find the Fortnite letters Where to…

Autonauts enters the Steam Age today with its major Industrial Revolution update
Other / 6. 2. 2020

Autonauts, the adorable automation-focussed colony management sim from developer Denki, has just received its first major free update of 2020 on Steam, titled Industrial Revolution. As Eurogamer’s Tom Phillips discovered when he dabbled with Autonauts last year, your basic goal is easy enough to get to grips with: automate your merry band of worker robots to make your new planetary home inhabitable for humans. Actually reaching that point, though, is considerably less straightforward, with players needing to programme their charges to efficiently navigate an ever-more dizzying crafting tree. Wood makes tools makes a farm for rearing sheep to gather wool to make clothes and so on and on. Autonauts’ first free updates, which arrived at the tail-end of last year, introduced the likes of new bot variants, new cooking options, new buildings, and new apparel. Today’s update, however, is far more substantial; as well as introducing mod support, it punts the somewhat rustic world of the core game straight into the Age of Steam. Read more

Check Out The Gameplay Trailer For Undungeon, A Colorful Pixel-Art Action/RPG
Other / 6. 2. 2020

Click to watch embedded media After making its way through Steam Greenlight and Kickstarter in early 2017, Laughing Machines’ Undungeon is gearing up for a 2020 release. Laughing Machines and publisher tinyBuild today released a gameplay trailer that shows off combat and some of the RPG systems for this stunning hand-drawn pixel-art game. In Undungeon, players suit up as one of seven Heralds, each coming from a different world destroyed by something called the Shift. The Heralds explore procedurally generated maps that are based on multiversal ideas, meaning you may visit the same place but it could be a little different the next time through. Their goal is to heal a world that has suffered a cataclysm. Undungeon is described by Laughing Machines as an action game with roguelike and old-school RPG styles. The team has drawn inspiration from games like FTL: Faster Than Light, Hyper Light Drifter, and Nuclear Throne for this quest-driven adventure. Right now, Laughing Machines is targeting PC as the sole platform with a release in the fourth quarter of 2020.

Slash, Dash, and Smash! ScourgeBringer is Available Now with Xbox Game Pass for PC
Other / 6. 2. 2020

My co-developer Florian and I started working on ScourgeBringer two years ago (or 100 weeks and 567 pizzas ago, to be precise) and can’t wait to finally get it in the hands of Xbox Game Pass for PC players! ScourgeBringer is a fast-paced, free-moving rogue-like platformer that aims to channel the rawness of an early rogue platformer with fluid controls, aerial combat, and detailed pixel-art graphics. It also got a punchy soundtrack from Joonas Turner who helped on the music from some of our favorite action indie games like Downwell, Broforce, and Noita. Set in a post-apocalyptic world where a mysterious entity wreaked havoc on all humanity, ScourgeBringer puts you in the shoes of the deadliest warrior of her clan: Kyhra. Help her to explore the unknown and slash her way through ancient machines guarding the seal of her past, and maybe the redemption of humanity. There is no backtracking, as the game structure follows a procedural combination of pre-built challenge rooms, not unlike Binding of Isaac. You can also expect cool power ups, a shop to upgrade your skills, nasty bosses and three different game worlds to explore (with more to come!). To make ScourgeBringer, we took inspiration from…

Pony Island creator unveils genre-bending card-based horror odyssey Inscryption
Other / 6. 2. 2020

Daniel Mullins – creator of such jaw-dropping, genre-defying delights as Pony Island and The Hex – has revealed his latest “self-destructing love letter to video games”. It’s called Inscryption, it’s a card-based horror “odyssey”, and it’s due to arrive on PC next year. As anyone that’s played Pony Island or The Hex can attest, Mullins’ games aren’t exactly known for shyly staying within the boundaries of convention. In Pony Island, for instance, what starts out as a fairly mundane arcade game soon becomes a battle with satan for the player’s very soul, while The Hex dances furiously through the annals of video gaming to deliver a fascinating genre-bending murder mystery treat. All of which is to say that Inscryption’s final form could very well be anything – or equally possibly, everything – but, for the time being, Mullins is describing it as a “narrative focused, card-based odyssey that blends the deck-building rogue-like, escape-room style puzzles, and psychological horror into a blood-laced smoothie.” Read more
