Past Cure re-written as a swathe of game-changing additions and enhancements creates an experience shaped by the fans and celebrated by the community
Berlin, Germany, July 5th, 2018 –Phantom 8, a Berlin-based indie developer, is pleased to announce a raft of additions and enhancements to Past Cure that presents the studio’s title in a whole new light.
Changes include new story elements, cinematics, redesigned levels, reworked sanity meter, and the addition of new abilities; allowing you to interact more with the environment and experience Ian’s story in a more compelling and engaging way.
The updated and enhanced Past Cure is available to download now for PC, and will release in the coming weeks for PlayStation and Xbox One.
To watch the relaunch trailer
“We were astounded by the level of feedback the community offered. The response to Past Cure has been incredible, and for a small studio, we’ve been really humbled by the positive contribution fans have made,” said Simon Gerdesmann, Phantom 8’s Managing Director. “We also listened to the things that didn’t resonate as we would have hoped, and have made a swathe of changes, additions, enhancements, redesigns to really bring out the best in Past Cure, a true labour of love for us.”
Other enhancements include improved auto-aim, new and improved voice overs, improved texturing and graphical upgrades and more.
New areas and redesigned levels
Entirely new areas have been created to enable more immersive gameplay in levels that have been redesigned to offer a more challenging, and ultimately more enjoyable experience for the player.
More mind-bending abilities
In Past Cure, players have many different abilities, but to create more ways to play, and feel even more powerful, two new abilities have been added.
Mind bash allows you to stun or kill enemies and destroy objects within the environment.
Mind Fly creates a shield around Ian, which utilises sanity as the hits reign in, giving you a useful addition to your journey, but one that comes at a cost.
A story that continues to unfold
Throughout Past Cure, cinematics have been reworked to tell more of the story loved by its fans, and splintered across its levels are more elements of the backstory to discover.
Reworked Sanity Meter
The new sanity meter doesn’t recover from under 35%, and as it depletes toward zero, the nightmares from Ian’s dream world begin to surface in the real world, creating a new threat. Ian will have to decide upon fight or flight against these new foes until his sanity recovers.
Winner of multiple awards – including Best Storytelling at White Nights, Public Choice Award at Game Connection 2017, nominated for best emotional game in the Emotional Game awards, and for Best Indie Game at GamesCom 2017 – PAST CURE sees you play as Ian, a former special operations soldier unsure of his surroundings, and desperate to make sense of the last few years.
After the victim of experimentation and torture in prison, Ian’s mind has become fractured. His captors left him scarred with unrelenting nightmares, visions and new unstable and largely unexplainable powers such as time manipulation and telekinesis. Drifting between reality and hallucinogenic states, Ian must make sense of the world around him as he sets out on a path of revenge and discovery, uncertain of what awaits around the next corner.
Developed by an eight-person studio, PAST CURE is Phantom 8’s debut game. It launches globally at digital and retail, echoing modern film making in its cinematic design, and redefining the quality that can be achieved with a small, but focused studio.
PAST CURE is available now at retail and digitally for PlayStation 4 & Xbox One and Steam.

Tuesday 26th June 2018, Cambridge, UK – RuneScape has today launched its very first Elite Dungeon, the Temple of Aminishi, which invites brave players to go solo or buddy up and defeat mobs, mini-bosses and a triple threat of aquatic antagonists, including a giant chained-up serpent – Seiryu the Azure Serpent, the spirit of water.
Located in The Arc archipelago, The Temple of Aminishi – and future Elite Dungeons – offers a greater level of accessibility than traditional in-game dungeons, including access for solo players for a greater challenge, and a story mode option that reduces enemy damage but decreases the chance of unlocking rewards.
The Temple of Aminishi is open to all RuneScape members, and players don’t need to be high-level. For RuneScape novices, a boat from Port Sarim will take them directly to Aminishi after the completing the ‘Impressing the Locals’ novice quest.
Those who do manage to overcome Seiryu, and the other bosses and mini-bosses, will secure a selection of rewards, including a new cosmetic outfit, weapon, tier 82-92 equipment, as well as raise their Dungeoneering skill and receive the title ‘Acolyte of Seiryu’.
Dave Osborne, Lead Designer, RuneScape, said:
“Elite Dungeons are a great way of delivering raid-like experiences without having to gather together a large group of friends and clanmates. The launch of the Temple of Aminishi offers a brilliant way to experience the continuation of The Arc storyline we began in RuneScape a couple of years ago, with a compelling tale and challenging bosses to overcome. We’re really excited to see what players think as they battle their way to Seiryu’s chamber and learn the secrets of the azure water serpent.”
The Temple of Aminishi will be quickly followed with a second Elite Dungeon, scheduled for the living game later in the summer. RuneScape is also currently holding its annual Summer Special promotion, giving players the chance to bag three months of membership for the price of two, Hellion Armour and three-month membership of Old School RuneScape. Further information on Summer Special can be found at the official RuneScape website.

Branching dialogues are used for conversations with non-player characters, and multiple endings are available.
Cyberpunk 2077 was developed by CD Projekt Red, an internal studio within CD Projekt, using the REDengine 4 game engine. They launched a new division in Wrocław to assist with development, and more staff members worked on the game than were allocated to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

Review by Jon Donnis
Shaq Fu was an old Megadrive/SNES game from the 1990s, and unfortunately it didn't go down in history as a great game, quite the opposite. So news of a remake surprised many.
Shaq Fu is a classic side-scrolling beat 'em up, and this new version is a lot of fun. Think Streetfighter 2 meets Streets of Rage and you will have a good idea.
Plenty of ridiculous humour, political correctness is thrown out of the window, and you get to button smash your way through level after level.
The control system is responsive, you always feel like you are in control, even when you are bashing away at the buttons with loads of enemies on screen at once.
Lets be honest here, the game is not gonna win any awards for innovation, and you will probably finish pretty quickly, but that aside, this game doesn't pretend to be anything other than what it is, and old fashioned arcade style side scrolling beat 'em up. Sometimes you don't want to spend endless hours thinking too much, you just want to jump straight in and kick some ass, and this game does let you do that.
The graphics, sound are all perfectly fine, the gameplay although a tad repetitive is also fine.
I give Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn a solid 6.5/10

BELGRADE, Serbia - June 12, 2018 - With football fever sweeping the globe this summer, Nordeus - the independent games studio - has today announced the signing of Luiz Felipe Scolari as their second managerial appointment for the International Cup feature in Top Eleven - the world’s most successful sports mobile game. On day one, Scolari has kicked off in style by revealing his team to star at this summer’s tournament, naming Premier League Golden Glove winner, David de Gea in goal, and Player of the Season and Golden Boot winner, Mo Salah to lead the line in his #MyTopEleven.
Check out Scolari’s #MyTopEleven:
In true Brazilian style, Big Phil has picked a very attacking side as Neymar and Ronaldo join Salah up top, with Messi and Vissel Kobe’s new signing, Iniesta sitting in behind. But he hasn’t forgotten his defensive roots naming a strong protective guard for de Gea. Real Madrid’s Casemiro is holding the defensive midfield role, sitting in front of fellow Champions League winners, Marcelo and Ramos. They are joined by Bayern Munich’s defensive duo of Hummels and Kimmich, adding German efficiency to his back four.
“We’re delighted to have signed Felipe and have him join the Top Eleven team to help us celebrate managers. On seeing his team selection, it’s no surprise he has named de Gea and Salah in his starting line-up, they’ve both have had outstanding seasons in the Premier League” said Ivana Davidov, Football Marketing Manager at Nordeus. “But every team needs a manager to make key decisions, and not just players to make the headlines. We want to change that and celebrate managers by asking the community to rise up to the challenge and help us create the largest ever sticker album full of the real football heroes, the managers.”
de Gea - Spain - Manchester United
Kimmich - Germany - Bayern Munich
Ramos - Spain - Real Madrid
Hummels - Germany - Bayern Munich
Marcelo - Brazil - Real Madrid
Casemiro - Brazil - Real Madrid
Iniesta - Spain - Barcelona
Messi - Argentina - Barcelona
Neymar - Brazil - PSG
Salah - Egypt - Liverpool
Ronaldo - Portugal - Real Madrid
Scolari will feature in-game, this summer, alongside fellow acclaimed international manager and World Cup winner, Vicente del Bosque - who recently took part in a Career Day as part of the Top Eleven campaign, #WeAreManagers, celebrating all the work managers do, and asks people to rally behind them by creating their very own Manager Sticker at www.topeleven.com/wearemanagers. The more supporters the album gets, the more spectacular the Top Eleven celebrations of managers will become. By signing up, managers will help unlock: a special celebratory song, a mural dedicated to managers, and other extravagant perks typically reserved for players. It’s about time for managers to receive some well-earned credit.
Managerize yourself at www.topeleven.com/wearemanagers and join the movement to celebrate managers all around the world, full T&Cs apply.
Both managers join José Mourinho as Top Eleven ambassadors, and will help gamers through the game, offering tips and even the chance to take on their teams.

Thursday 7th June 2018, Cambridge, UK – The vampyres of Morytania are promising redemption for Old School RuneScape adventurers who bravely survive Theatre of Blood, a new raid for groups of up to five players that launches today.
Voted into the game by ~90% of over 40,000 polled players, Theatre of Blood sees raiding parties running the gauntlet of battle-thirsty warriors, nightmarish creatures, and facing taxing, life-threatening puzzles. The final act is a bitter fight for survival against Lady Verzik Vitur, one of the last true-born vampyres left in Gielinor.
The new PvE raid features a new wiping death mechanic for Old School RuneScape, where individuals who die watch from the sidelines while their surviving teammates continue fighting that room’s challenges.
Once the room has been overcome, they will revive and continue into the Theatre with the rest of the team. However, if the whole party dies, the raid is lost. While earned rewards can be collected outside the Theatre, the number of deaths met by the party during their run through the arena negatively affects the chance of obtaining a unique reward.
Balancing and testing of the content was undertaken by some of Old School RuneScape’s best raiders and dedicated content creators who flew in from around the globe to get exclusive access to the Theatre and the developers behind it. Some of the testers were; B0aty, MMORPGrs, Mr Mammal, Zulu, Classix, DedWilson, Woox, Reed, and Dalek Cookie.
Today’s release follows last month’s launch of A Taste of Hope, the fourth part of the Myreque quest series, which sees players reach the doors of the Theatre of Blood, home of the feared Lady Verzik.
Mathew Kemp, Senior Product Manager, Old School RuneScape said:
“As always, we’ve collaborated closely with the Old School RuneScape community throughout the development of Theatre of Blood to make sure it was a worthy follow up to the game’s first raid, The Chambers of Xeric.
“With such an emphatic vote backing the raid, we knew it was important to deliver a really engaging challenge for players looking to run the dangerous gauntlet of the Theatre. With the invaluable feedback of our community, pro-raiders, and content creators, we have delivered a blood-sucking raid worthy of the anticipation!”
Watford, England - June 7, 2018 - Wired Productions Ltd., a leading independent video games publisher, and up-and-coming developer Caged Element Inc. invite out-of-this-world speed demons to experience GRIP – a ferociously fast, futuristic arcade combat racer – arriving on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, the all-in-one entertainment system from Microsoft, Nintendo Switch™ and Windows PC via Steam® in Autumn 2018. Members of the original team behind the classic arcade combat racer, Rollcage have come together with fans to celebrate the re-emergence of blindingly-fast arcade racers; offering a true, wheel-gripping racing experience - where utter destruction serves one true purpose: be the first to cross the finish line.
“It’s a dream come true to once again find myself working on another great racing project,” said Robert Baker, principal programmer for GRIP and former lead programmer at Rollcage’s developer, Attention to Detail. “There are so many elements to GRIP that take me back, and I love the true racing experience that Rollcage, and now GRIP, both deliver. GRIP is truly poised to be the spiritual successor to the Rollcage games of the late 90s that so many people loved playing.”
Taking full advantage of the current generation of gaming hardware, GRIP accelerates ahead of the racing crowd by offering players speeds of over 767 mph - making it the fastest racing game on four wheels, across roads, ceilings and anything else players can land their tyres on to. The game will benefit from the enhanced power behind the PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X, delivering eye-pleasing visuals with spectacular in-game physics and harnessing the potential that comes from building with Unreal® Engine 4.
GRIP will see racers speeding their way around 19 breathtaking tracks across a variety of hostile and foreign worlds. Remaining focused on the task at hand, players must be merciless in their quest to cross the finish line; deploying an arsenal of 11 devastating weapons and power-ups to give them the advantage to take the lead against fierce competitors. From explosive darts, mines, and missiles to shields and turbos, these weapons will allow players to not only target other cars, but the environment surrounding them - blasting their way through structures or collapsing them unexpectedly onto unsuspecting opponents.
Racers can pick from a roster of 15 armoured cars - some swift and agile, while others are brutish and heavily armoured. Modifying further to suit their style, players can also customize each vehicle with an array of varied paint jobs, decals, wheels and other details. More information about the game’s cars, tracks, weapons and other modes - including Carkour and Arena - will be detailed by Wired Productions later this year.
GRIP is currently available in early access on Steam, with a full release planned for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One, Xbox One X, Nintendo Switch and PC later this year.

You play as Senua – a Celtic warrior who is on a quest to rescue the soul of her dead lover from Helheim – a.k.a. the Underworld. Senua is plagued by what she believes to be a curse, but what she’s actually suffering from is a mental illness called Psychosis. Her Psychosis causes her to hear voices and see things that aren’t really there - but that doesn’t make the danger any less real. So to help you on your journey through the depths of Hell, Senua’s mind, and the voices and creatures of Darkness all while avoiding the looming threat of perma-death. Here are 5 tips for Hellblade: Seuna’s Sacrifice.

Become a daring thief in City of Brass, a punishing first-person, Arabian Nights-themed adventure from senior BioShock developers. Armed with scimitar and a whip that can grab, trip, disarm, stun or shatter as well as swing, players will lash and slash, bait and trap their way through hordes of undead, making it to each level’s exit before the Sands of Time run out, collecting treasures and looting chests for weapon and armor upgrades or powerful relics on the way.
Players will have to leap across pits, slide under blades, avoid spears or arrows, evade or employ sprung paving slabs, and skirt round poison gas traps – all the while manipulating these dangers to their advantage against enemies.
Incarcerated within the city are genies, most of them friendly, who will barter benefits in return for loot or grant wishes for a powerful advantage
The rhythmic interplay between sword and whip is carefully tuned along with sprinting, crouching, sliding, leaping and vaulting to give a fluid, balanced and natural feel to the movement and melee. Eternal replayability is granted by a design that encourages combinative gameplay within an ever-changing but logical procedurally generated world. Players will die in the City of Brass – often, and quite horribly – but they will always want to come back for just one more try…

Tuesday 29th May 2018, Cambridge, UK – The tormented ‘Guardian of The Lost Grove’, Solak, has today returned to the RuneScape world of Gielinor after many millennia. The first new group boss to launch in RuneScape since January 2017, Solak is a high-level, end-game character that can be fought against in a couple of ways, allowing either a challenging or accessible experience: a two-player mode and a group mode for between one and seven players.
While no specific level requirements are needed to battle Solak, adventurers looking to take on the Guardian should ensure they gather together a strong team with high-level combat gear. Should Solak be released from the evil elf spirit that controls him, players will be rewarded with new, powerful crossbows and access to new pets – the creatures of the grove.
Solak has also debuted in the real world thanks to a brand-new AR experience, with the release of two Snapcodes that bring the Guardian of the Lost Grove to life!
