Gods-Will-Be-Watching-BoxArt-600x307

Gods Will Be Watching is a brand new point and click thriller developed by Deconstructeam and can be downloaded today, July 24th, 2014,  On PC for 9.99. You can purchase the game from Valve’s Steam, GOG.com and Humble. Check out the launch trailer below to see what awaits in this brand new thriller.

 It looks to be an intense game that will test your wits as you try to stay alive around every corner. Here is the official synopsis about the game:

“Gods Will Be Watching is a minimalistic “point and click thriller” centered on despair, commitment, and sacrifice as players face narrative puzzles and moral dilemmas that will affect both the lives of your team and the people you’re are sworn to protect. Set against the backdrop of an interstellar struggle, Gods Will Be Watching follows Sgt. Burden and his crew in six tense chapters from hostage situations and wilderness survival to biological weapon prevention and agonizing torture scenarios. Each decision is crucial and players will need to choose between the lives of their team and the saving the world from genocide. There’s no good or evil, just decisions, with only you and the gods as a judge to your actions.”

Here are the gameplay details that Deconstructeam promises will make Gods Will Be Watching stand out from other point and click games:

  • An innovative departure from the traditional point and click adventure taking place in six intimate, tension-filled scenarios linked together through an epic narrative of interstellar espionage.
  • Set morals aside as you navigate Sgt. Burden and his team through harrowing predicaments and make decisions that will either save your team or sacrifice their lives for the sake of the mission.
  • Solve a wide variety of narrative puzzles and moral dilemmas using your own wits and burden the consequences of your choices. Do you intimidate or comfort your hostages to maintain your tenuous control of the situation? Should you kill the weakest member of your party to save on food for the strong? What is one life worth in the face of annihilation?
  • Receive your judgment from the gods upon failure and compare your choices to all other players in the universe over time.
  • Over 1,500 beautifully designed sprites tell your story against 15 stunning backgrounds and an emotionally stirring orchestral soundtrack.

Epiphany Games Annonces New RPG Thriller Majestic Nights

Screen-Shot-2014-07-23-at-8_57_15-AM

Epiphany Games, the minds behind Runic Rumble and Frozen Hearth, have just announced their next game called Majestic Nights. The annoncment was made today and the game sounds pretty intriguing and is one to watch out for. The game is described as being an RPG thriller set in an alternate 1980’s where all conspiracy theories, both past and present, are a reality. Majestic Nights will be released in six episodes beginning in September of this year with a free prologue story that takes place before the six main episodes titled Chapter Zero.  A new episode will be released each month until the finale is released on April 2015. Each episode is described as being one part of a complete story or each epoisde can be enjoyed as a standalone experience. Each episode can be purchased individually or all together within a season pass bundle, prices for either option have not yet been revealed. Majestic Nights is being referred to as season one, so if the game sells well, it seems that it could potentially become a brand new episodic franchise.  Here is the official synopsis of the game that was revealed in the announcement for Majestic Nights:

“It’s the bright and brash 1980s… a world crammed with hidden intrigue and sinister plots, government cover-ups and alien sightings, CIA experiments and a truth that definitely is out there… a world which needs a fast-talking loose cannon right about now…You play as Cardholder: an intelligence operative who may or may not have been present at or even responsible for many of the biggest conspiracy events in history; and Cal, a humble Private Investigator whose own past is shrouded in secrets unknown even to herself. With fast, light mechanics, the game has been developed to engross players in a shadowy world of conspiracy with an over-the-top 1980s aesthetic. Players will use wits, stealth and sometimes even a little force to investigate, explore, and acquire ever more clues for their big string-covered wall of conspiracies.”

Here is what Majestic Nights promises to deliver:

  • Isometric RPG gameplay
  • Real-time stealth and combat mechanics
  • Big hair!
  • Investigate and collect evidence to reveal the Truth
  • A vibrant alternative 1980s setting
  • A world full of conspiracy theories and government plots where everything you know is wrong
  • Nazi aliens!
  • Controller support for platforms including PC, Mac, iOS and Android
  • A gripping, six episode story
  • Puzzles, minigames and more!
  • Alternate story paths to explore
  • Kick-ass original 1980s soundtrack
  • ‘Chapter Zero’, a prologue to the core season, will be available free before launch
  • More Truth than any other game!
  • Season Pass will be available on all platforms (and comes with the soundtrack!)
  • Steam Achievements
  • Keytars

Sounds like a pretty neat and bold idea and I am excited to see where Majestic Nights will take us and what conspiracy theories will be incorporated into the series. As always, stay tuned to RealGamerNewz for any updates on Majestic Nights as they become available. Until then, check out the teaser trailer for Majestic Nights below.

 

Among The Sleep Review

Among-the-Sleep-skidrow-dowload-torrent

Among the Sleep is a first person horror adventure game. The player is placed into the eyes of a two year old baby boy on a mysterious night where something dangerous is lurking within the house that he lives in. The player is tasked to find his mother before whatever is after the child is able to capture him. The game begins with the baby boy that the player will play as, celebrating his birthday with his mother. After a series of events, the boy will find himself in his room which is where a tutorial of the games mechanics will take place. This is also the location where you will meet your companion that will stand by you throughout the game, a talking teddy bear that goes by the name of Teddy. After eventually being put to sleep by your mother, you awake to a night of mystery as you embark on a quest through your house to find your lost mother.

 Among-the-Sleep-4

Among The sleep is presented as a first person horror adventure that places you right into the eyes and actions of a two year old baby boy. Krillbite Studio did a tremendous job of making you feel that you are truly playing as a baby. For example, you have to walk very slowly and instead of being able to run to move faster, you must crawl on the floor. These gameplay decisions are subtle, yet make complete sense when you are playing as a two year old child.  Another example is whenever a door blocks your path it is not a simple task to open the door like it would be in another game. Instead, part of the challenge of being a baby is that you are forced to find creative ways to reach the doorknob and open the door. Ways to do this consist of: pulling chairs close to it or climbing on furniture. It is a different way to think about progressing through a game but makes complete sense when playing as a two year old child. The gameplay also consists of solving different kinds of puzzles and finding keys to unlock specific doors in order to advance. Teddy is also a key part of the gameplay as he is able to guide you through the house by lighting up very dark areas within it. He also serves as your guide and gives you moral support throughout your adventure. The game does create a creepy atmosphere, but has very few actual scare moments which I thought the game could have done better to really immerse you into the creepy setting. The gameplay is simplistic but it works and I found it to be a fun and unique experience.

 Among the Sleep 2014-06-06 11-58-55-49

The story involves you guiding the baby boy on a quest to find his mother on a dangerous night with something mysterious occurring. The story is very short and not much more can be said other then what was mentioned above, without spoiling the experience. I will leave it to you to discover this fun journey for yourself. Among The Sleep can be completed in as little as two hours and offers little too no replay value after you have beaten the story, with the exception of a few clever and fun achievements that can be achieved.

Final Verdict:

Among The Sleep is a unique first person horror adventure that will keep you entertained from start to finish. It has an entertaining story and an interesting premise that is executed very well. The environments are well done and they create a creepy atmosphere, but more scare tactics could have been utilized to create a greater sense of danger and urgency throughout the game. Among The Sleep will conclude before you know it, however, it is a psychological thrill ride and a journey that is well worth taking.

CD Projekt Red’s Hidden Message Uncovered Within The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt “Sword of Destiny” Trailer

The Witcher III RealGamerNewz E3

Many new details about The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt were revealed yesterday at CD Projekt Red’s press conference. In case you missed it, a full break down of what was discussed can be found HERE. During the conference yesterday, a brand new, never before seen gameplay trailer titled “Sword of Destiny” was revealed and was very impressive. Now, after further examination of the trailer, a hidden message has been decoded that was placed within the trailer by CD Projekt Red and reveals even more information about the highly anticipated game. A picture of the message can be found below as it is seen in the actual trailer.

 Here is the message transcribed:

“We’ve missed you!
Today you got a look at the third trailer for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. We hope you liked it!
There’s so much more in this game that it’s just impossible to show everything within two and a half minutes. Still, we tried.
More importantly we just showed you some of the main characters…
Geralt’s close friends and some of the last witchers remaining in the world – Vesemir, Eskel and Lambert – will play a big part in the game, as well as their famous fortress Kaer Morhen.
You also got a glimpse of the renowned bard Dandelion and the sorceress Triss Merigold.
Emhyr var Emreis, Emperor of Nilfgaard, the most powerful man in the world of The Witcher also made an appearance. Recognize his voice?
And then there was Ciri!
And Yennefer!
By the way, if you’re new to the series, don’t worry, the game will introduce you to all you need to know, and you’ll start loving (and hating!) characters in no time!
Also, you’ve been asking us many questions about gameplay features and we’re finally ready to answer some of them – so here it goes:
Yes, you will be able to fight while on horseback
The crossbow. Yup, Geralt can use ranged weapon. Because sometimes monsters fly and you can’t reach them.
Remember swimming and sailing. You’ll be able to dive and search for a lot of hidden stuff too. There’s a whole underwater world to discover.
Horse racing anyone?
You also got to hear more music from the game. This particular track was composed by Marcin Przybyłowicz & Percival. We’d love to hear your feedback. Fire away in the comments or on the game’s Facebook/Twitter/forums. Remember, we’re always listening, even if we’re not getting back to you.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Team
CD PROJEKT RED
PS. If you’re still waiting for more (you are, right?), please be patient. We’re just warming up.
PPS. Have you seen the Collector’s Edition video? What do you think about the figure?
PPPS. We’ve just announced a closed multiplayer beta of The Witcher Adventure Game ——– & let the GOG.com guys —— you.”

Many interesting tidbits of information can be found within this hidden message. Yennefer was revealed, fighting while on horseback, horse racing, ranged weapons, swimming, sailing, an underwater world!!!!! The wait for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt to be released on the newly announced release date, February 24th, 2015, has just become even more unbearable.

Amazon Leaks PlayStation 4/Vita “Ultimate Player Edition” Bundle

81elhHruRFL__SL1500_

Amazon France (click here to be taken to the store page) may have just let the cat out of the bag for a new bundle Sony is releasing. The bundle will include both a Playstation 4 and a PlayStation Vita slim model which are shown together in the picture above.  Amazon France indicates that the bundle will be released on July 4th in France. The bundle will cost €579.99, which translates to $789.99.

This may seem like a large sum of money, however, the PlayStation Vita slim model costs €179.99 ($245.16), and the PS4 by itself costs €399.99 ($544.83). So when you do the math, they actually add up to the same price if you were to buy them separately. If this bundle is true and were also to be released in North America, the prices will more than likely be adjusted to match what the PS4 and Vita cost in both the US and Canada.

At this time, that is all that is known about this potential bundle other than Amazon referring to it as the “Ultimate Player Edition.” More than likely, more will be revealed about this new bundle at the Sony Press Conference at E3 on Monday, June 9th, at 6pm Pacific Standard Time or 9Pm Eastern Standard Time. As always, stay tuned to RealGamerNewz as more details about this bundle are revealed.

Watch Dogs Sells 4 million Copies In One Week

Watch-Dogs-Game-HD-Desktop-Wallpapers

Ubisoft has confirmed that Watch Dogs has sold more than 4 million copies in its first week of release. This news makes Watch Dogs the best selling new franchise launch in history. In addition, this news also confirms that Watch Dogs is the best first week sales of any Ubisoft game in the companies history, a pretty impressive feat given the current lineup of games Ubisoft currently has. The 4 million copies sold includes the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC versions.  The Wii U version has yet to be released and will only add to the financial success that Watch Dogs is currently enjoying.

As a minor side note, The ctOS mobile companion app which allows players to become the police and challenge people playing the actual Watch Dogs game, has been downloaded by more than one million people.

Ubisoft has pointed out in the past that if a Watch Dogs 2 were to be made that the devlopement time would be much shorter than it was for the original Watch Dogs. When factoring in these sales and overall popularity of Watch Dogs, it would not be surprising if a Watch Dogs 2 was not in Ubisoft’s plans for the near future.

 

Girls Claim Slender Man is Real, Stabbed Friend 19 Times

Slender_man

Two 12 year old girls from Waukesha, Wisconsin named, Morgan Geyser and Anissa Weier, are facing attempted murder charges following a devastating attack on one of their fellow classmates. The two girls claimed that the attack was a direct result by internet horror myth Slender Man.

The story goes that Morgan Geyser and Anissa Weier, invited their friend over for a sleepover, where they had planned to murder her in order to appeal to Slender Man, which the girls claim that he lives in a mansion in the nearby countryside.  Out at the park the next day, Geyser is accused of stabbing their so called friend 19 times before leaving her for dead. Luckily, the “friend” was able to survive and staggered towards a road where she was discovered and rushed to the hospital.

The Journal Sentinel has a frightening account of the crime which is detailed below.

“Weier told police that Slender Man is the “leader” of Creepypasta, and in the hierarchy of that world, one must kill in order to show dedication. Weier said that Geyser told her they should become “proxies” of Slender Man — a paranormal figure known for his ability to create tendrils from his fingers and back — and kill their friend to prove themselves worthy of him. Weier said she was surprised by Geyser’s suggestion, but also excited to prove skeptics wrong and show that Slender Man really did exist.”

The two girls are being tried as adults due to the severity of the crime. If they were to be charged as juveniles they would be released at the age of 25 if found guilty. Since they are being tried as adults, they could face up to 65 years in prison.
