Hasbro Unveils Fortnite The Foundation: Zero Crisis Edition Figure
Other / 26. 3. 2021

Hot off the heels of Epic Games and Hasbro’s recent partnership renewal, the toy-maker has unveiled The Foundation Zero Crisis Edition figure. The hot toy is available for pre-order now and should be a fine addition to the Fortnite fan in your family. Or just you. This is probably going to be for you. The Foundation was introduced at the end of Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 6 when it and Agent Jones sealed the Zero Point in a tower during the Zero Crisis finale. The Foundation serves as leader of the interdimensional group known as The Seven and may or may not be a robot. Regardless of what it is, we can probably all agree that it makes for a cool action figure. The Foundation figure stands at 6 inches, features premium details, has 20 points of articulation, and sports attachable black cape. It also comes with a Foundational ‘Brella Glider for you to simulate those opening drops from the bus. The Foundation is the first in a special collection of toys based on The Seven from Hasbro’s Victory Royale Series line. Because of this, The Foundation comes in special packaging exclusive to The Seven figures.  You can pre-order The…

Virginia dev’s supernatural “anthology drama” Last Stop shows off new gameplay
Other / 26. 3. 2021

Variable State, the developer behind 2016’s small town mystery adventure Virginia, has offered a closer look at its upcoming supernatural anthology drama Last Stop in a new gameplay trailer. Last Stop, which was unveiled back in 2019, is described as a game about “secret lives, the ties that bind, and how magic can be found in the mundane”. It tells three occasionally interweaving stories set in modern day London, each focussing on a different cast of characters. Variable State’s latest look at Last Stop hones in one of those characters, John – an “overworked middle-aged single dad” who, thanks to the aforementioned supernatural malarky, has accidentally swapped bodies with his next door neighbour Jack. The pair must work together to return to their original bodies and lives. Read more

Other / 26. 3. 2021

Starting today and running every Friday, I’m asking five Game Informer staffers to fill you in on something they hope to do this weekend.

Everyone – from designers to coders – will be offering recommendations. And we’d like to hear your pick as well. Leave a short description of something you are doing this weekend in the chat section below, and we’ll be sure to read it and potentially investigate further.

Genesis Noir Available Today with Xbox Game Pass
Other / 26. 3. 2021

Genesis Noir is an adventure game that takes place before, during, and after The Big Bang. A cosmic gunshot expands towards the heart of a god and you must explore the universe, seeking clues on how creation might be undone. Genesis Noir is a creation myth and a film noir. A love triangle erupts between No Man, a watch peddler stuck in a deterministic hell, Golden Boy, a narcissistic artist who loves to create and destroy, and Miss Mass, an alluring jazz singer who attracts all who come close. The Big Bang results and history begins! From the birth of stars to the emergence of life and beyond, you’ll explore the deadly Big Bang. This wide range of settings is presented in black and white, paying homage to the contrast of classic film noir photography. Hand drawn 2D animation and 3D environments are combined to create beautiful transitions between scenes of cosmic scale and the tiniest clues for your investigation. With a focus on tactile puzzles and exploration, you’ll experiment with objects in small slivers of the universe to discover how they can be manipulated to progress your investigation. Dial a rotary phone; destroy a civilization; plant a garden; improvise…

Titan Souls developer Acid Nerve talks us through Death’s Door, a gorgeous, gooey-looking Zelda-like
Other / 26. 3. 2021

In amongst today’s ID@Xbox fiesta you’ll have likely clocked Death’s Door, a game where a small, sword-wielding crow has it out with a rocket-fuelled cathedral, amongst other things. This is the new game from Acid Nerve, the two-man studio behind the tense, one-hit boss-hunter Titan Souls. It’s coming to Xbox and PC soon-ish – “We’re getting to the last stages now, just polishing and bug fixing, so we’re expecting it to be out this summer,” designer David Fenn tells me – and it looks extremely good. The premise – not that this kind of spicy crow-on-chateau action needs much embellishment – is that the little bird is a reaper, who has to go about collecting souls from people in a world where people and things no longer naturally die. You report to some weary bureaucrats, also crows, who need to keep doing this soul-harvesting job to survive themselves, but then one day one of your big souls gets stolen, which is not good, and off you go: laser cathedral. Boss frog. Waves of gelatinous blobs and bubbling hazards in a weirdly touchable, gothic plasticine world. Its Titan Souls lineage seems clear, obviously in those structured, big-on-small boss fights, but also…
