Co-Op Mode For Debris Announced

Moonray Studios have announced a co-op mode will be coming to their underwater game - which you can pick up on Steam right now.

"You and a friend are trapped together, yet still somehow alone. An unconventional narrative co-op game set in a surreal frozen seascape. Developed over 3 years, this first-person co-op story takes place in a surreal sunken world locked between ice and rock. Following an accident, players must scramble to find power, defeat strange creatures and decipher what mysterious forces are attempting to prevent their escape. Debris is designed based on the challenges facing those affected by psychosis and created with the help of medical professionals, Debris explores the interplay between perception and reality in an unconventional narrative-driven co-op format."

Debris From Moonray Studios Released - Escape Together Or Die Alone

Following along with A Mortician's Tale, our friends at Moonray Studios released Debris on Steam this week! It's also enjoying a 15% launch discount, so pick it up today!

You’re part of a small team sent to film a promotional video for a groundbreaking discovery: meteoric debris embedded deep in Arctic ice that provides clean, hyper-efficient energy. But as your dive begins, several explosions create a powerful current that drags you and your team down, trapping everyone in a vast network of submerged glacial caverns.

Escape together or die alone

Stranded at the bottom, injured and running out of time, your only hope for survival is to reach the surface. But the journey through the depths is full of unexpected trials. You and your team will fight your way through hostile creatures in increasingly confusing and dangerous environments. 

But something else is going on. Things aren’t right, they don’t add up, and before you know it the truth comes into question. As you fight your way to safety, you’ll need to figure out what’s behind this surreal world and your desperate situation. Knowing will make all the difference.

McMaster Students Launch Kickstarter For Chocolate Conquest

Soft Snow Studios Limited is a group of software engineering students from McMaster University.  They have a Kickstarter going for their JRPG style game, Chocolate Conquest.  It has a turn-based battle system, and your party can have up to four characters.

The game takes place in a strange world, where chocolate is the source of all power. It is delicious, and flows through all beings.

You will play as Yuuri, a young woman with the power to topple the world’s rules, and stand against fate. Yuuri is able to relive her past experiences, and open doors that were previously closed to her.

By finding allies and gathering strength across playthroughs, Yuuri hopes to shatter the rules placed on the world.

Their goal is to reach $3000 by October 6.  At the time of this post, they're at $168.

Card Game Star Pirates Infinity From Snakehead Games Out Now

Star Pirates Infinity, the collectible card game from Hamilton based Snakehead Games. The game is available for iOS, Android, PC, and Mac. The game contains 4 factions, PVP including Guilds, and 44 story missions. You can check out the trailer below:

20-Hundred Terracades into the future, fragments of mankind settled in the distant star cluster of Terzan-7. When the rogue star, Krishna XI-32, unexpectedly went hypernova, the resulting Gamma radiation blast obliterated life on all planetary colonies in the cluster.

With the Nega-Gate destroyed in the initial blast, only those in super luminous ships were able to escape the star's fury. Limited by their meager interstellar range, the survivors of Terzan-7 were unable to return to their home galaxy.

With the radiation dissipating after the Hypernova over the course 100 earth years, the survivors began their pilgrimage into the hell-bathed systems. Inheriting the shattered remnants of a thousand worlds irradiated in a stellar inferno, four factions have arisen to rebuild the desolate systems in their own image....
