Bound by Flame

By on May 9, 2014 at 9:56 am

Bound by Flame is the latest RPG from developers Spiders, and is probably their boldest and darkest effort yet.

Jess fires up Daylight, the procedurally-generated horror/exploration game from Zombie Studios, for a trip through the bowels of an abandoned hospital.

We had the chance to check out The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt last month at a preview screening hosted by CD Projekt RED in Sydney. While we were unfortunately not allowed to go directly hands-on with the game, we did see the game being played live and came away hugely impressed by the scale and grandeur of what CDPR are planning.

The Repopulation

Kickstarter! It can be a confusing place, with so many games popping up, some of them only to burst a few days later, some of them limping along until the creator sadly pulls the plug with 24 hours to go. Some of them even make it across the line, while others get funded in seconds. So what’s going on in the world of Kickstarter? Here are seven titles you might have missed…
