11/21/2014 - Zombies Monsters Robots Gets New Expansion Mode
Zombies Monsters Robots Gets Robotic in “Steel Corps”: New Mech Expansion Mode, Maps, and Gear


En Masse Entertainment Releases New PC Content Update Unleashing Three Classes of Devastating Mechs Plus 9 New Maps

It’s time to suit up! En Masse Entertainment announces giant mechs are invading Zombies Monsters Robots (ZMR) with the launch of the “Steel Corps” update. Players can pilot mechanical powersuits to tear into opponents with the heaviest weapons on the battlefield in Team Mech Match modes. This powerful new PvP mode is accompanied by a whopping nine new maps for both PvP and PvE play, all catering to the community of PC players enjoying this intense, over-the-top third person shooter.

The new ZMR mechs, which come in Light, Medium, and Heavy classes, have been retro-engineered from the mechanical powersuits players have piloted in PvE maps. Each class includes two base models and two Limited Edition variants with explosive firepower and sweet paint jobs! Light Mechs are fast, lightly-armored, close-range powersuits, while Medium Mechs are all-purpose killing machines with solid armor and serious firepower. For players focused on raw power than mobility, Heavy Mechs are armored war machines built to withstand concentrated damage while raining destruction down on the battlefield. Whichever class is chosen, players can lay some mech-based smackdown in team battles for mechanized supremacy!

The update’s nine new maps span levels designed for mechs, new PvE battlegrounds, and PvP maps. From the port-based “Pier Pressure” to “Chopping Mall”, a map that is sure to bring a whole new meaning to Black Friday shopping mayhem, there’s something new for every player in “Steel Corps”.

11/17/2014 - Chainsaw Warrior Announced for Steam and Mobile
Darkness Returns - Chainsaw Warrior: Lords of the Night Announced

UK, 17th November 2014 - Bristol based indie developer, Auroch Digital, have announced a sequel to their 2013 adaptation of the cult Games Workshop board game ‘Chainsaw Warrior’, to be released on Steam and mobile devices this winter.
Chainsaw Warrior, which came out on iOS, Android and Steam last year, was an adaptation of the 1987 classic from Games Workshop, famous for its challenging difficulty. Described as “an incredibly faithful adaptation” (Forbes) Chainsaw Warrior won support from fans of the board game and new players alike with its punishing campaign, and the sequel promises to maintain that intensity while adding stacks of new challenges to test players.

Chainsaw Warrior: Lords of the Night, sees players once again fighting against the clock as they battle through decks of deadly traps and fierce creatures. Lords of the Night introduces an upgraded combat system, new weapons, upgrades, powers and equipment, unique mini bosses that require careful tactics to defeat, three new zones to fight through and an even tougher confrontation with the enigmatic Darkness than ever before.

“Chainsaw Warrior will always be, at its heart, a board game. It’s important to us that people who played the original can jump right in and feel at home, but at the same time we want to use this opportunity to build on the challenge and add in some tricks that the digital format opens up for us” said Steve Martin, the game’s designer at Auroch Digital.

To celebrate the announcement, Auroch Digital have declared a day long 50% sale on the original Chainsaw Warrior, giving players a perfect opportunity to catch up with the story so far on the 18th November.

The game will be released on Steam, iOS and Android devices this winter for $4.99/€3.99/£2.99. To stay in the loop with the project follow
