"We really worked hard to make the combat in Nightmare Reaper satisfying and addictive and we feel like seeing it in action is the only way to better appreciate it, without playing it yourself, obviously." - said Bruno Beaudoin, Founder.
The polished Early Access release of the game, titled "Episode One", will feature over 32 weapons and will be crammed with variety and surprises. Mysterious non-intrusive story elements will guide players through nightmare after nightmare to eradicate evil while they collect treasures that they'll use to improve their abilities through a fun minigame.

Lost Orbit: Terminal Velocity features a new epilogue to continue the story. After the events of Harrisons journey across the universe our hero is reunited with his sister only to find out that things are much worse than he thought possible.

Harrison sets off on a mission of escaping the chaos that was once his home world in hopes of finding more survivors and a place to call his own.
The game will be a free update to people who already own the game, and for the first time can be picked up on Nintendo Switch, as well as Playstation 4, Xbox One, and Steam on July 16th.
One of the most anticipated game at this year’s E3 will no doubt be Marvel’s Avengers from Edios Montreal and Crystal Dynamics. The game was actually announced a little while ago, but very little has been shown. Square Enix announced a few days ago that we will get our first glimpse of the game at this year’s E3.
Since this, a few things have gone out like IGN reporting that the game will have “continuous” single-player, and co-operative gameplay. We’ll have to wait a little while longer to get the full look though and see what that means, and we’ll be sure to post it here on CanadianGamedevs.com
