02/10/2017 - Ubisoft Announces OST Crew for Star Trek Bridge Crew
UBISOFT® ANNOUNCES U.S.S. ENTERPRISE ORIGINAL BRIDGE FOR VIRTUAL REALITY GAME STAR TREKTM: BRIDGE CREW

PLAYERS WILL CHOOSE BETWEEN EMBARKING ON MISSIONS ON THE U.S.S. ENTERPRISE OR THE U.S.S. AEGIS WHEN THE GAME LAUNCHES ON MAY 30TH

London, uk – February 10th, 2017 – Today, Ubisoft® announced that the bridge of the legendary U.S.S. Enterprise from Star Trek: The Original Series will be playable in Star Trek™: Bridge Crew, the new virtual reality game where players explore space as a member of Starfleet. Under license by CBS Consumer Products, Star Trek: Bridge Crew will be available on PlayStation®VR, Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. In addition to the announcement of the original series bridge aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701, the new launch date on all platforms will be May 30th, 2017.

Developed by Red Storm Entertainment, a Ubisoft Studio, Star Trek fans will be able to live out their Star Trek dreams as a member of the bridge crew aboard the famed U.S.S. Enterprise and the U.S.S. Aegis, a brand new ship created for Star Trek: Bridge Crew. Playable co-operatively with a crew of up to four, or solo playing as the Captain, players will be immersed into the Star Trek universe as they command a Starfleet vessel and complete missions that will determine the fate of their ship and crew.  The original U.S.S. Enterprise bridge will be playable in the Ongoing Voyages mode, which generates randomised missions for countless hours of solo and co-op adventure.

“We felt it was important to include a part of classic Star Trek with this game, especially during Star Trek’s 50th anniversary,” said David Votypka, Senior Creative Director at Red Storm Entertainment. “The original U.S.S. Enterprise is such an iconic part of the franchise - it’s the ship that started it all.  The adventures and relationships that took place on the ship are a special part of Star Trek history, so we were determined to give players the opportunity to create their own adventures and stories on this classic ship.  We’re very excited to see player reactions when they step onto the U.S.S. Enterprise original bridge for the first time, and experience Star Trek: Bridge Crew in a whole new way. We’re also appreciative of players’ patience as we finalise work on the game to bring the Star Trek experience we envisioned to life.”

Star Trek: Bridge Crew marks the most recent project in virtual reality for Ubisoft, which believes in the strong potential of VR to redefine social gaming with a unique sense of reality. Ubisoft recently released the games Werewolves Within™ and Eagle Flight™, and announced a VR partnership with the film company SpectreVision.

02/09/2017 - Bomb Defense on Steam Greenlight
Bomb Defense on Steam Greenlight


Bomb Defense is a unique tower defense/puzzle game featuring explosions, physics and rag doll effects.

You get a limited amount of money to buy traps, bombs, turrets and walls and place them in clever positions to defend against enemies trying to harm your curious little kitten Mimi who, for some reason, keeps wandering into an array of sinister dungeons and graveyards.

It’s an open-ended game with many ways to win, and even more ways that she can die. Depending on your level of neglect, a Cyclops may clobber her with a mace, or perhaps she’ll become a Goblin’s breakfast!

Your best score will be ranked against other players’ best score for each level. So you aren’t just playing alone; and if your score is good enough you’ll earn a fancy medal and your score might then be the coveted score that other geniuses scramble to beat. 

While similar to tower defense games, this game requires a lot more thinking and certain puzzle-solving skills to keep your pesky little cat alive. A true test of your IQ if played with a high difficulty setting. Or a fun strategy game with lower difficulty settings. 

Being developed for Windows, Mac, Linux. Other platforms later.

The Hit Mobile RPG Soda Dungeon Arrives on Steam


IRVINE, CA -  February 7th, 2017 -
Hit free mobile RPG Soda Dungeon arrives on Steam today. The game, released in 2015 and developed by Afro-Ninja Productions and published by Armor Games, has enjoyed millions of downloads and a consistently high rating by users on Google Play and iTunes alike. Soda Dungeon features no ads on Steam, timers, stamina systems, or paywalls, and offers only completely optional purchases that can also be earned with in-game cash.

Soda Dungeon is a casual retro-styled RPG where you develop a tavern next to a seemingly bottomless dungeon. As you entice different classes of heroes based on the sodas you sell, you can assemble parties to explore the dungeon for loot, controlling them through classic turn-based combat or letting the game auto-play to reap the rewards. The Steam version contains all current content and updates, and also introduces the ability for players to transfer their save between devices, currently useable in Beta.

About Afro-Ninja Productions: Shawn Tanner has been a developer of quality free games for over a decade, covering everything from classic point-and-click adventures to top-down shooters, real-time strategy, and more.

About Armor Games: Originally launched over a decade ago as a wildly popular portal for free online Flash games, in recent years, Armor Games has begun branching out as a publishing studio with an eye on working directly with talented indie developers.

02/06/2017 - Free Game Update for Gunjack 2 Adds New Conent
Free game update brings even more depth and replayability to the critically acclaimed shooter exclusively available on Daydream, Google’s platform for high-quality mobile VR

Today, CCP Games’ Shanghai studio is thrilled to announce the release of an all-new game update for Gunjack 2: End of Shift – the fast-paced turret shooter set in EVE Online®’s science fiction universe, built from the ground up for mobile VR using Unreal Engine 4. This game update is available for download now and is free for all owners of Gunjack 2: End of Shift.

The new update brings four major new additions to the game, bringing greater depth and replayability to Gunjack 2’s incredibly immersive VR gameplay. To see the action, watch the new trailer here: https://youtu.be/Libxmqb4duE

With Challenges, players will be matched against others in a competition for the highest score in a mutator enhanced mission. Mutators dramatically alter the characteristics of a Challenge and players must adapt accordingly if they want to prove that they are the top Gunjack!

The Daily Shift has now become the Weekly Shift, in which seven procedurally generated new missions will be made available each week for players to dive into at their leisure. High scores for each mission will be displayed on a leaderboard, rewarding those players best able to destroy waves of attackers and defend the Kubera.

With the new Progression System, both Challenges and the Weekly Shift reward experience, allowing players to unlock a range of special weapon upgrades and the all-new Pyro Slicer, a fiery destruction dispenser! Upgrades include the 'Maelstrom' Autocannon, built for raw damage and faster reloads and the 'Carnage' Flak Cannon, with its larger area-of-effect really puts the "Aaaargghhhhh!" in carnage.

To round off this update, the new Loadout System adds greater strategic depth to the game by enabling players to customize their special weapon loadouts for the Challenges and Weekly Shift game modes. Now players have more ways to hone their skills and become the greatest Gunjack that ever lived… if they can survive the would-be plunderers trying to blow their rig apart.

Gunjack 2: End of Shift is the sequel to Gunjack, which sold through more than 500,000 units across Samsung Gear VR, Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and PlayStation VR to become one of the best-selling VR games of all time. The Gunjack series is developed by CCP Shanghai, which has quickly become world renowned as a leader in the creation of industry-leading mobile VR experiences.

Gunjack 2: End of Shift is priced at $12.99 and is available exclusively on Daydream, Google’s platform for high-quality mobile VR. To find the game on Google Play, follow this link.
