06/16/2015 - Red Goddess Inner World Coming to PS4 June 30th
Red Goddess: Inner World for PlayStation 4 will be launching in North America and Europe on June 30th

We are very excited to announce that Re d Goddess: Inner World for PlayStation 4 will be launching in  North America and Europe on June 30th! The game is available via PlayStation®Network  for $14.99 / € 14.99

We’re talking about a Metroidvania, with a powerful narrative and magical aesthetic, a brawling adventure game where you play as a young goddess named “Divine” to explore her inner-mind with the objective of remembering and recovering her own powers.

Red Goddess: Inner World is an adventure game in an epic journey and features mystical-fantasy storytelling in a universe filled with symbolism. The atmosphere is conveyed through an unique art style with beautiful graphics and immersive gameplay.  Red Goddess lets players explore a non-linear map, and it emphasizes back-tracking with new moves and skills to access new areas, but combat, with its simple red and blue factions mechanic is where it truly shines to make  Red Goddess a memorable gaming experience.

A gorgeous introductory cinematic introduces you to the protagonist’s plight, Red Goddess is an open-world action game very much in the same vein as the classic Super Metroid, Outland, Dust: An Elysian Tail, Guacamelee or Castlevania games.

Storytelling:
In  Red Goddess, you play as a troubled deity named Divine, who feels confused and haunted by her past. she is in imminent danger, Something mysterious and unknown is tearing her apart from the inside out, destroying her mind, her soul. To save herself, she must explore her own mind and the planet that exists within it. This exploration is fraught with impediments and obstacles. The journey begins when Divine decides to right this wrong by exploring her own subconscious, where she will discover a planet within her own mind made up of mountains, forests, caves, villages, and perils unknown… a vast space for players to explore.

Characters:
You can play the game with Divine, your protagonist runs, jumps, climbs, talk and interact, over time, her abilities evolve to include other powers, also psyche power: telekinesis. In her journey, Divine is helped by two alternate personalities, Rage and Fear, who embody her emotions, with their own unique skills and abilities, The enemies, meanwhile, are her own negative thoughts. You can shift between Divine, Rage  and Fear characters, with a quick tap of the R1 and L1 buttons in DualShock 4. When you do select one character, the other half appears as a “mask” of the main character (either Rage or Fear persona). The mask appears following you everywhere in the game, and could turn against if you activate some traps.

Gameplay:
Our title features new and progressively more deadly challenges for the player: unlocking new powers and unravelling the mysteries, survive attacks from dangerous creatures, solving puzzles and defeating the dangerous bosses.

Trailer:
Watch this brand new trailer, showcasing in-game footage, to get a glimpse of what to expect when we take you to  Red Goddess: Inner World in June:

Rating age:
Red Goddess: Inner World is rated E for Everyone by the ESRB. And  Pegi 12 rating age.

Unreal Engine and Playstation:
From the earliest stages of our development we knew that with Unreal Engine 4 we had an opportunity to create a game that pushes next-gen gameplay experiences in addition to providing awesome visuals. The result is that the world of  Red Goddess: Inner World and its characters; Divine, with her two sides: Rage and Fear and enemies, NPCs, Golems…  feel like a awesome world that you can walk through, explore, and truly experience to be a young goddess. The PS4’s powerful hardware has allowed us to bring a  amazing experience with some specials options with DualShock 4, like  vibration function and different colour light bar depending on which character is in play.

Yanim Studio:
We’re an independent game developer, based in Spain with a focus on creativity. We started to work approximately ten years ago with 3D animation, outsourcing 3D artwork for others developers, We are a small team of only six people, composed of people who have worked for games such as Risen, Deadlight, and Wanted: Weapons of Fate. We’ve launched a Crowdfunding campaign, kicked off in June 2014.  the pledge goal was met. Almost 1,300 backers pledged  $40,235 to support the development  of Red Goddess: Inner World.

Be sure to check out  Red Goddess:Inner World, now on the PlayStation Store, you can pick up an awesome game with epic battles!

06/16/2015 - Ascent First Major Election Underway
Ascent First Major Election Underway!


David Takes on Goliath for President of the Galaxy!

June 16, 2015 - Ascent - The Space Game (
www.TheSpaceGame.com ), the largest space game in the known universe, is holding its first general election since launching on Steam and entering Early Access. Most important to this election is the seat of President of the Galaxy, whom among other powers is given a direct line to the development team. This means they can influence the very foundation of the universe as it is built. Ascent is on sale during the Steam Summer Sale, get it now at http://store.steampowered.com/agecheck/app/345010/.

Prolapser, long time space veteran and colonial expansionist with over 1,300 hours of flight time logged has been the frontrunner of this presidential race since the start. With his experience and established support base it seemed almost comical that anyone would be a challenge, but like a bolt from the blue the younger Waervyn has stepped onto the scene in a big way, drawing a lot of attention to his social media campaigns and helpful youtube tutorials. The throng of newer, less established players see him as the best choice to meet their needs while the old guard, as it were, find themselves supporting their old colleague. It may only take one or two supercolonies to flip sides, however, for this young upstart to turn the tide of this election! It’s down to the wire and the June 20th deadline to vote is looming. Who will be the next President and what changes will they bring in their 6 month term?

The powers of government are ever expanding in Ascent. Like all things they started with nothing, and as players are able to bring about consensus in their ranks, new laws and options become open to them. Soon the president and senators will be able to deploy military vessels to deal with rogue pirates, and up for debate this season is the creation of a governmental taxation system to redistribute wealth into super projects, new players, and other activities. We’ll also be seeing plenty of debate over embargoed goods, as new, dangerous, and sometimes deadly products make their debut into the game.

Ascent players are gearing up for a very busy summer. With 20% off now is the perfect time to get in and cast your vote! Get it now at
