The L.E.A.F. suit gives you the power to run quickly and jump incredibly high, yet it isn't the most marvelous power in Blue Isle Studio's Valley. In this valley filled with ancient ruins and lost woods, the most wondrous power is the suit's ability to give and take life, bringing things back to existence or drawing the energy from living things.

NoClip's previous title Barrier X brought insane speed and vibrant style to the twitchy arcade action genre. Their side-scrolling follow-up Standby may leave the speeding ships behind in favor of a green suited hero, but the intense speed, slick style, and challenging gameplay remain.

The Age Of Sail Comes Alive In Naval Combat Game Abandon Ship

August 24, 2016 1:46 PM | Christian Valentin

Mention the age of sail and the majestic images of masted ships cutting across the choppy seas are probably the first things that come to mind, followed by the fury of cannon blasts and splintered wood popularized by the years of cinematic ship battles. Abandon Ship hopes to capture the atmosphere of such imagery through FTL-esque naval combat and a detailed aesthetic that evokes classic oil paintings.

Tormentor X Punisher Will Rip Your Face Off And Eat It. Roar!

August 24, 2016 9:10 AM | Thomas Faust

tormentor x punisher.jpg
Run. Shoot. Die. Repeat. It's early days for Tormentor X Punisher, but the basic gameplay loop is there and it couldn't be more pure, more videogamey. Taking inspiration from your average arena shooter and adding Hotline Miami's fast-paced glass cannon gunplay, the game is about racking up ridiculous high scores before dying and doing it all over again.

Twenty years ago, in a fit of clarity, the Supreme Court banned all humans from running for president in order to stem the flow of corruption. Now, we find ourselves taking on the role of a young woman thrust into the role of campaign manager for one of a handful of feline (mainly?) presidential candidates. Will love bloom on the harsh campaign trail, or will someone finally realize how weird all of this is and ruin all of the fun in newly-released dating sim Cat President ~A More Purrfect Union~.

Something Quite Special: Gris

Gris-1.jpg
After thirty hours of wandering through the Gamescom halls, I was thoroughly fed up with games. I guess that's to be expected - you can only take in so much, and the sheer number of interesting new titles was simply overwhelming. So there I was, dead tired, longing for a hot shower and my own bed more than anything else, even entertaining the thought of skipping my remaining appointments. And then suddenly everything changed. All because of Gris.

August 22, 2016 2:03 PM | Christian Valentin

path2.png

A samurai without a master, walking the roads with only his blade at his side and his deadly skills. The Path To Die puts you in the fierce shoes of a ronin, as he travels through the sprawling grounds of the Imperial Palace to solve a mystery. Of course given the many guards and warriors protecting those secrets, blood will be spilled in this top-down action-adventure set in feudal Japan.

Nothing To See Here, Just Some Russian Subway Dogs

Wait, whaaat? You read that right: Russian Subway Dogs. They are a thing, you know. Living in the Moscow subway, taking the train, fighting bears... Maybe not the part about bears. Either way, Miguel Sternberg, creator of Night of the Cephalopods and They Bleed Pixels, is working on a game about those doggie comrades.

Better late than never, this is the June edition of the IndieBox; Moon Hunters. An isometric RPG game that put's the player's narrative above everything else. The lore, characters, the constellations in the night sky and it's soothing soundtrack makes up for the identity of the game, and that is well reflected in this month's IndieBox.
