BugSnax, A New Game Coming Up For PS4, PS5, PC and Mac

I just came across this brand new game announcement this week from Young Horses, a new game development company based in Chicago, Illinois. Here's a new title that you should be interested in. In Bugsnax we will take you to a special journey, on a whimsical adventure to Snaktooth Island, home of the legendary half-bug half-snack creatures. Invited by intrepid explorer Elizabert Megafig, you arrive to discover your host nowhere to be found, her camp in shambles, and her followers scattered across the island alone... and hungry! It's up to you to solve the mysteries of Snaktooth Island: What happened to Lizbert? What are Bugsnax and where do they come from? But most of all, why do they taste SO GOOD?

Not only that, but you will be able to explore diverse biomes of Snaktooth Island to track

Retrogaming Forever - Liero One Of The Best Game I Ever Played

As many of you probably know by now, I am a fan of retrogaming. I remember since the 80's I where my dad bought me an Atari 2600 VCS I felt in love with the world of computing. Since back then I became interested in programming as well. After playing games for many years on both my Commodore 64 and TRS-80 Color Computer, I slowly get involved in PC gaming. As you may know PCs at that time were not the ideal machine for games, but the '90s became the years of changes and one of the games that brought my attention was Liero. Conceived and created in 1998 Liero became a popular duel game in classrooms and homes alike. Between 1999 and 2005 the thriving Liero community created astounding maps, mods, and editors to enhance the experience of this amazing game. This is the final version of the original generation of Liero released in early 2000. Even after the last two decades, Liero maintains its popularity. If you are still an old fan of Liero, you will be more than happy to lear

Game Engines or Programming Languages, Witch One Is The Best?

What is the best game engine in the world you can find in 2020? As an indie game designer and as an experimented game developer , my answer will always be: it depends. You see, the choice of a game engine will always depend on what criteria your game will be based on. It all depends on the type of video game and efforts you are willing to make. Is the game will be in 2D or 3D? Will it be an RPG adventure, a First Person Shooter , a Third Person Shooter , or a sport's game ? Will it be a platform game or a puzzle ? As you can tell the possibilities are endless. That video game will also depend on how you like to work and how you think in terms of scripting and programming. Some people like me prefer to do some coding instead and there are a few good reasons for that. Because I am already a programmer, I find it useful to create my own game logic and programming philosophy. When you are a programmer, you can do everything you want, and the way you want. You are the one wh

In this new release, the nefarious Dr. Neo Cortex, the villainous Dr. N. Tropy, and the infamous Uka-Uka have torn the fabric of space and time, causing a temporal rift.

A Second Birth For Pokémon Snap - An Upcoming Game Release For Nintendo Switch

It's been more than two decades by now, where Nintendo 64 players were treated to a new kind of Pokémon . If we go back in times around 1999 Pokémon Snap gave players an on-rails shooter of sorts that tasked them with these iconic creatures in their natural habitats. Now the good news is the Bandai Namco Studios is about to release the Pokémon Snap on the famous Nintendo Switch console . Unlike the ported versions released for both the Nintendo Wii in and Wii U consoles respectively in 2007 and 2016 in Japan only, that improved version of the original classic game-title will now be referred to The New Pokémon Snap , and no, the original creators HAL Laboratory and Pax Softnica are not involved into the new project, this time and yes, The New Pokémon Snap will be available in America and also elsewhere.

Video Game Trailer: Check out the new PopStar Fighter Trailer

The countdown as begun for the launch of PoStar Fighter. In fact, there are 27 days from today before you can download the game. So how the game look like? What are the objectives? PopStar Fighter is a side-scrolling shooting game with a lot of action-packed insides. The rules are quite simples. You need to avoid all the balloons launched in the sky, but also you will have to be careful when picking up some fuel because there are a lot of buildings and trees out there. When I first started the development of the game back in 2018, I didn't have in mind that scenario. You see, my inspiration came from another game written for the Tandy Color Computer 3, and I was planning to port that game(PopStar Pilot) to the PC under the Windows operating system. The idea was great, however, for some copyright legal issues, I preferred to create a brand new concept that simply followed the structure of that game. Plus I didn't have the game available for testing, especially, because I don'

New Game Release For PC - PopStar Fighter

I am so excited about my first game launch ever. You have no idea how much I feel about this upcoming event scheduled for July 15th. If you enjoy these side-scrolling arcade games with action shooting, then you will enjoy playing PopStar Fighter. When I first started this journey with the development of the game, I add to admin that the original plan was not that at all. No, I was planning to rewrite another concept that looks similar to the actual game excepted the rules were very different from the actual game. The idea came from a game written for the Tandy Color Computer 3 from Radio Shack by Nicolas Maranta's called PopStar Pilot. So what should you expect from this game? Well, a lot of great fun-filled with a lot of action. Technically, it was not that hard to design a game like this one, especially with today's technology. PopStar Fighter was designed with the concept of game engines. Speaking of game engines, I wrote all data using Game Maker Studio 2 from Yoyo Games, o
