ANOTHER SIGHT to launch on Steam on 6th September 2018


Milan, Italy – August 16th, 2018 — Lunar Great Wall, the Italian developer behind the much anticipated Another Sight, has today announced that Another Sight will be launching on Steam on 6th September 2018. To celebrate the announcement the developers have also released more screenshots and a brand-new trailer for the game.

The latest trailer can be viewed here:

Another Sight is available to wish list on Steam:
https://store.steampowered.com/app/888630/Another_Sight

Marco Ponte, CEO and Founder of Lunar Great Wall commented: “Another Sight has truly been a labour of love for the team here at Lunar Great Wall. We’re now pleased to be able to share Hodge and Kit with the world and invite players to experience their journey with us.”

Another Sight is developed using Unreal Engine which has enabled Lunar Great Wall Studios realise their vision. Marco Ponte commented on using the Unreal Engine, saying “It is fantastic to have Another Sight powered with industry-leading engine. The reliability and completeness of the development suite provided with Unreal Engine allowed our developers to stay fully concentrated on gameplay and pursue our artistic vision for the project.”

Returning comment, Sjoerd De Jong from EPIC GAMES had the following to say on Another Sight incorporating the Unreal Engine “Unreal offers a complete suite of powerful tools which are designed to meet the needs of games developers across the world. It provides a solid foundation on which to build on allowing developers, such as Lunar Great Wall, to concentrate on creating award-winning stand-out games.”

ANOTHER SIGHT is a surreal fantasy adventure with steampunk elements set in London in 1899, towards the end of the Victorian era. With an emphasis on culture and character, ANOTHER SIGHT focuses on the emotional development of the relationship between its two protagonists, Kit, a refreshingly intrepid teenager, and Hodge – a mysterious red-furred cat.

They meet in the darkness of a London Underground construction site, after Kit loses her sight when the tunnel she had been exploring collapses. They team up for an adventure into the unexpected, with Hodge proving himself to be an indispensable companion, upon whom Kit will come to rely. Kit and Hodge explore a surreal fantasy world, both together and separately, each using their own unique talents to make their way through compelling environments, and to solve intriguing puzzles.

Beneath London, in a world inspired by Neil Gaiman’s urban fantasy, Neverwhere, Kit and Hodge encounter a hidden society made up of the world’s greatest inventors and finest artistic minds, including Claude Monet, Nikola Tesla, Thomas Edison and other historical cultural icons.

Another Sight Gameplay Features:

EMOTIVE DRIVEN – A story about a girl and her cat companion on a journey beyond sight and the real. A tale of warmth and intrigue is woven throughout the adventure, touching on trust, companionship and losing what we take for granted. Innovative gameplay and a story of heart is galvanized by a soundscape given life to by a symphonic orchestra to accent memorable moments between Kit, Hodge and the journey they’re on.

MASTERS OF THE PAST - Throughout the journey, Kit and Hodge will meet virtuoso artists such as Claude Monet and other cultural historical figures from the past, learning more about the world and dangers it presents. Each encounter visually impacts the world, taking on aesthetics of each creative movement from the famous characters Kit and Hodge meet.

STORY WOVEN GAMEPLAY – Use the unique abilities of each character to help Kit and Hodge traverse the world and overcome environmental challenges. Kit and Hodge can split up to investigate different areas of the locale that the other may not be able to reach, with both Kit and Hodge perceiving the world in very different ways, opening up different possibilities for overcoming their adventure.

Another Sight is launching on PC Steam on 6th September 2018 and will be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch later in the year. The game can be viewed on Steam here: https://store.steampowered.com/app/888630/Another_Sight

New trailer reveals that sci-fi adventure ‘Elea’ launches on 6th September



Rotterdam, The Netherlands - August 13, 2018 - The first episode of surreal sci-fi adventure Elea will launch into the galaxy on the 6th of September. Elea is coming to Xbox One and Steam® and is already available for pre-order on Xbox One.



Visit the Steam page: https://store.steampowered.com/app/812020/rda

Inspired by the classics
Kyodai, the developer of Elea, got the inspiration for the game’s narrative from the books of classic sci-fi writers such as Stanislaw Lem, Arthur C. Clarke and Frank Herbert. Being big fans of story-driven first-person games, they asked themselves at the early stages of development what innovation Elea could offer to the genre besides its unique and touching story.

They noticed that many first-person adventures offer just one main distinct location, with one specific visual style. Inspired by their love of old-school platformer games, they decided to take a completely different approach for Elea. In classic platformer games the environments can vary from a lava level to a snow level, followed by a jungle level for example. The developers wanted to give Elea this same incredible variety in surroundings, to make it feel like an enormous journey through time and space.

A rising star
Elea already launched into Early Access on Steam® at the end of April. SOEDESCO’s community manager Marten Buijsse states: ‘’Thanks to the community’s enthusiasm and help, we have been able to finish and fine-tune the game based on their wishes and good advice. We are now confident that we can present Elea in its best form for the full release on Xbox One and Steam’’.

LONDON – August 9, 2018 - Netmarble Corporation, the fastest-growing mobile game company worldwide, today launched an update for its hit mobile MMORPG, Lineage 2: Revolution (http://l2.netmarble.com), introducing the Academy Clan – a tutorial for new and veteran players that guides players through the Clan system and helps them achieve victory.

Players level 10 through 180, who have yet to join a Clan, can join the Academy Clan to play through the full Academy Clan tutorial.

To celebrate the new tutorial, three new Clan-specific events will be held from August 8 to August 29. The “For the Clan! Event” will offer special rewards including R-grade Armour Boxes, R-grade Mount Equipment Boxes and Radiant Upgrade Stone Selection Boxes to all players in Clans, including new Academy Clan players, after they have completed a series of Clan-specific missions. When members of a Clan donate items to their fellow members, they will also receive 1.5x more Adena than usual via the “Clan Check-In and Donation Reward Event.” A new “Clan Penalty Period Decrease Event” will also lessen the penalties of leaving and rejoining Clans during the event period, so players will have a chance to try out a variety of Clans.

A new Equipment Collection feature has also been introduced, where, by collecting specific Attribute Equipment through their time in the game, players will receive additional rewards and stats that will strengthen their character.

The Tower of Insolence will also now go up to 120 floors through the latest in-game update. All players will receive 500 Red Diamonds when they reach the 120th floor by August 29. Players can also compete to reach the 120th floor first during the “Tower of Insolence World’s First Clear! Event” from August 8 to August 29.

Wired Productions Announces Full Release Date for GRIP: Combat Racing



Watford, England - August 2, 2018 - Wired Productions Ltd., a leading independent video games publisher, and developer Caged Element Inc. today announce that GRIP: Combat Racing – a ferociously fast, futuristic arcade combat racer – will speed onto the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One, the all-in-one entertainment system from Microsoft, Xbox One X, Nintendo Switch™ and Windows PC via Steam® on November 6, 2018. Racers who pre-order through Game in the UK will receive the exclusive Nyvoss Hex Paint Kit, the Vortex Rim Pack, and five pre-order exclusive vehicle decals.

To watch the release date trailer for GRIP: Combat Racing via YouTube, check out the video, below.



“We're getting pretty excited as we near the finish line on GRIP,” said Chris Mallinson, Game Director. “It's been surreal to see this passion project evolve into the intense combat racing experience that players will soon be able to dive into."

GRIP: Combat Racing will see racers hurtling their way around 22 breath-taking tracks across a variety of hostile and foreign worlds, driving one of 15 armoured cars - some swift and agile, while others are brutish and heavily armoured. Players must be merciless; deploying a bristling arsenal of 9 outlandish weapons and power-ups to give them the advantage to take the lead against other fierce competitors. These weapons will allow players to not only target other cars, but also the destructible environments surrounding them.

Inspired by the Rollcage games of the late 90s and backed by a highly-skilled and accomplished team, which includes Rollcage programming veteran, Robert Baker, GRIP: Combat Racing celebrates the re-emergence of blindingly fast arcade combat racers, offering a true, wheel-gripping racing experience - where utter destruction serves one true purpose: be the first to cross the finish line.

Taking full advantage of the current generation of gaming hardware – and benefiting from the potential that comes with building on Unreal® Engine 4, the game accelerates ahead of the racing crowd by offering players gravity-defying physics reaching speeds of over 767 mph - making it the fastest racing game on four wheels. Along with the breakneck speeds and intense action, players will generate countless unforgettable gaming moments – online or offline – with split- screen races and tournaments. Born of the age of street racing, and losing none of its cut-throat nature, it’s not enough to just cross the line in GRIP: Combat Racing; more important is how you got there and how much destruction you have unleashed upon your rivals along the way.

Fans can get the latest news by joining the GRIP: Combat Racing communities on Twitter at @gripvideogame, Facebook at @gripvideogame, via #GRIPCombatRacing, and on Discord.
