Uncovering the Secrets of the Swedish Countryside in Unravel

Swedish game developer Coldwood Interactive’s adorable new 2D puzzle-platformer, Unravel, is quite the unusual game. It takes place in its creators’ homeland, where a little red ball of yarn – named, aptly enough, Yarny – explores the Swedish countryside. Yarny is both quirky and tiny, meaning that even mundane objects like chairs and fruit appear huge, let alone the relatively gigantic boulders and trees that pop up along the way. Yarny unravels himself in order to create bridges and traverse gaps that range from small drains to imposing chasms. He can throw the front end of the yarn like a grappling hook, or grab the yarn that trails behind him and attach it to things. This... Read more

Hilarious Hack ‘n Slasher Zombie Vikings Coming Soon to Xbox One

Zombie Vikings! Yeah, that might sound like a silly name at first, but just remember Napoleon Dynamite and his Liger. You simply can’t have too much of two good things. Zombies + Vikings = total niceness! I’m from Zoink, an indie game studio from the cold dark of Sweden. You might have heard about our previous title, Stick It to The Man, but besides zany adventure games we also love couch co-op games and this is our attempt to combine great hack ’n’ slash gameplay with our love of humor and story. Did I mention Zach Weinersmith, creator of the hit comic "Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal", is the writer of the game? He is! In Zombie Vikings, you are sent on an insane mission... Read more

Cooperative Shooter Spareware Coming Soon to Xbox One

Spareware is a cooperative top-down shooter set in a future dystopian metropolis of Helsinki. We’ve designed Spareware to be a game for people who just want a fun little shooter to play while hanging out with friends, without compromising the challenging hardcore gameplay elements. Because of the challenge, you may have to start over multiple times, but it won’t get boring thanks to our procedural world generation system with multiple different archetypes of levels. We’ve always liked to play cool top-down shooters together and when we got the Xbox One, we didn’t find enough games from the genre. Then it hit us. We realized that we should finally do the game we’ve wanted to do... Read more

Save the World Today in Fortified for Xbox One

Inspired by 1950’s pulp fiction, Fortified is a unique blend of bombastic third person shooting, and uncompromising co-op base defense gameplay. We’ve always wanted to make games that marry intense strategic gameplay with great multiplayer action that requires coordination and teamwork; Fortified is the first step in that direction. The dev team here at Clapfoot has been working hard for the past two years to bring it to life on the Xbox One. One of the biggest challenges we faced while developing Fortified was building a co-op multiplayer game with only seven core team members. How do you properly playtest with such limited resources?

Bulkhead Interactive’s Battalion 1944 is Reinventing the WWII Shooter on Xbox One

Two years ago, our team of 21 year olds found a tiny closet of an office and started making Pneuma: Breath of Life, our story-driven first person puzzler that was part of Games with Gold in November. When Pneuma successfully released, we didn’t buy fast cars or houses, instead reinvesting our funds into making two new titles for Xbox One. One of which we’re really excited to be announcing this week! 10 years ago, we were in our bedrooms playing Call of Duty 2, Medal of Honor, and Enemy Territory. Well, now we’re finally announcing Battalion 1944, our homage to the great WWII shooters of the past. Battalion 1944 propels World War II back into the modern gaming spotlight as a... Read more

SuperHot is Bringing Strategic Mayhem to Xbox One Soon

Blurring the lines between cautious strategy and unbridled mayhem, SuperHot is the FPS in which time moves only when you move. No regenerating health bars. No conveniently placed ammo drops. It's just you, outnumbered and outgunned, grabbing the weapons of fallen enemies to shoot, slice, and maneuver through a hurricane of slow-motion bullets. From its origins in the 7 Day FPS game jam through a hugely successful Kickstarter campaign, and on to its place as an IGF and SXSW Gaming Awards finalist, we’re incredibly grateful to the supporters who have helped to make SuperHot a reality. What started out as a small passion project ended up becoming a 2.5 year-long adventure. SuperHot has... Read more

5 Big Scares in the Resident Evil HD Remasters

Resident Evil has been a gaming staple for more than two decades now – and the medium owes an immense amount of gratitude to Capcom’s horror-infused, zombie-infested third-person action series. Now, Resident Evil didn’t quite invent survival-horror... but it certainly made the term mainstream, and popularized the genre on consoles. And, of course, it made the “big scare” cool; a slew of imitators appeared in the following years, but none of them delivered with quite the same style and panache. Whittling down a list of the five biggest scares in the HD remakes of Resident Evil and Resident Evil Zero on Xbox One (also now available in the Resident Evil Origins Collection retail... Read more

Sheltered’s Bloodlines Update is Available Now for Xbox One

Sheltered has seen many updates since entering the Xbox One Game Preview program, but none have been quite as significant as this one. Available now, the Bloodlines Update brings an important feature with it – the ability to extend your core family unit. The team here on Sheltered have been very hard at work designing and implementing a way for this to be achieved.

5 Things We’ve Learned from the Beta for The Division

Tom Clancy’s The Division is a game that’s been a long time coming – and it’s almost here. In preparation for the March 8 release, Ubisoft has staged an Xbox One beta test for this hybrid shooter/role-playing game. Here are five things that we’ve discovered during our time with it. New York City is beautiful in winter. OK, sure – you’re not exactly seeing the city at its best. The Division takes place in the immediate aftermath of a devastating biological attack so, you know, it’s not exactly tourist season. Still, the snow-covered streets, twinkling Christmas lights, and dynamic weather and time-of-day systems make it easy to overlook the quarantined buildings,... Read more

There are two of us here at Radiationburn, but that hasn’t stopped us making something pretty big, and we are elated to be unleashing The Living Dungeon upon Xbox One players. The Living Dungeon started as a fun board game all about murdering your friends, dropping them into bottomless pits, tricking them into being squashed or incinerated, or trapping them in a room full of monsters and watching them being torn to pieces. You know, wholesome family fun. We played it with people almost every Friday for two years. Then one day someone pointed out the obvious: we should make it into a video game. Each player chooses their skill dice but there are no hits and misses here. Roll 5 dice... Read more
