A new BTS game from the makers of BTS World is in the works

Following the massive success of BTS World, Netmarble and Big Hit Entertainment have announced today that they’ll be teaming up to bring to life another BTS game. For now, all we really have to go on is a concept trailer, though what a concept trailer it is. I have to admit that I’m not terribly knowledgeable on BTS or the ‘Bangtan Universe’. However, I do know not to get on the wrong side of its frighteningly devoted fanbase. I’m sure they’re passionate for a reason; the band is cool and all. BTS World, if you missed it, is of course a visual novel that follows the BTS boys through their journey to stardom, often going off on intriguing, alternate rea…

PAYDAY: Crime War blasts its way onto the App Store and Google Play

Intense ‘cops v robbers’ shooter, PAYDAY: Crime War, has finally made its way to the App Store and Google Play. It’s currently available in soft launch for players in most EU countries, including the UK, and – as first reported by Android Police – a US beta period has been announced. The news of the beta arrived on the game’s Facebook page. It’ll be playable for a limited time prior to the full launch. Crime War has been in the works since all the way back in 2016, maybe even earlier. The first gameplay actually cropped up in early 2017, and, besides a few hands-on previews late last year, development progress has been fairly quiet since then.…

Tombshaft is a charming, challenging rogue-lite platformer

Tombshaft, developer doinksoft’s second game this year following Gato Roboto, is a charming, challenging rogue-lite platformer. It tasks you with delving into a trap-filled, monster-infested tomb to hunt for priceless treasures, and it’s available for pre-order today on the App Store. Some have already drawn comparisons between it and roguelike classics like Spelunky and Downwell. Though, on closer inspection, it’s clear that Tombshaft’s gameplay differs quite a bit from both. You’ll rapidly slide down the crumbling cave walls while taking care to dodge the various monsters that call the tomb home. In the mix are man-sized bats, horned devil things, and the od…

Monster Hunter Freedom Unite will be delisted from the App Store on September 1st

The popular iOS port of Monster Hunter Freedom Unite will be delisted from the App Store on September 1st. Freedom Unite originally launched as a PSP game all the way back in 2008, before being ported to iOS in 2014.  While it’s bad news regardless of how you spin it, players who’ve already purchased the game will still be able to download and play it on their device with only a few caveats. You’ll still have the option to play through the single-player and online modes, but the in-game chat features will be removed. To make matters a little worse, it’s been confirmed that Freedom Unite is only supported up to iOS 10.2, meaning its days are numbered. Our sist…

Dear Esther, The Chinese Room’s divisive narrative-driven adventure game, is coming to iOS

Dear Esther, The Chinese Room’s highly divisive narrative-driven adventure game, is heading to iOS later in the year. It’s arguably the game responsible for the popularisation of the ‘walking sim’ genre. After originally launching for PC all the way back in 2012, Dear Esther has gone on to sell over one million units. At launch, it was praised for its very deliberate pacing and refreshing lack of action. For sure, it didn’t win over everyone, but it’s hard to argue against the game’s importance as a foundation for the likes of Gone Home and What Remains of Edith Finch. Your time in Dear Esther is spent exploring an isolated, abandoned Hebridean i…

Golf Peaks' latest update adds 12 super challenging courses

Indie developer Afterburn’s puzzle/golf hybrid, Golf Peaks, is getting a whopping new update later this month that adds 12 extra hard courses to tackle. The new levels are totally free, and you can expect to see version 3.0 launch on August 13th. The announcement of more content for Golf Peak, a previous Big Indie Pitch winner, is great news for puzzle fans. If you’ve not tried it out yet, it’s maybe best described as a turn-based puzzler where you’re given a handful of pre-selected moves to make. The “moves” in this case are swings of your putter. It sounds like something that shouldn’t really work, and yet it absolutely does. I suppose it helps…

Diorama Detective is a lighthearted AR title about solving quirky mysteries

The general idea behind it is that you’ll explore a series of highly-detailed dioramas to search for clues that might lead you to crack the case. Recreating crime scenes can be done by moving characters and objects around t…

Flocc is a unique game all about controlling an ever-growing flock of birds

Joe Lillington’s Flocc is quite unlike anything else on the App Store. It’s a strange, meditative experience all about controlling an ever-growing flock of birds. Your flock will initially consist only of starlings, though as you progress, you’ll gradually pick up other stragglers.

Its controls are straightforward, with impressive patterns being possible through simple swipes and taps. Those looking for a bit more of a challenge will be happy to hear that there are 30 logbook achievements to earn as you work your way through the game’s world. There’s also a nea…
