The Week of September 30 2018
Parkasaurus challenges the player to plan, design and construct fabulous exhibits that maximize both the happiness of their Dinos, and the park guests’ satisfaction and willingness to spend money! Starting with only a dream and an abandoned park the player will discover ground breaking technologies, new attractions and a special bond with each of their Dinos, all captured in stunningly beautiful modernized 3D flat design graphics.
Crystal Gun Girl is a 2D platform action game which the player takes down bosses, enemies and explores dungeons.
Saving Doc Jack is a fast-paced, hand-crafted, 2d platformer currently in development. The game is set in an erupting volcano where lava abounds and oxygen is scarce. The main objective is to reach the top of the volcano as fast as possible, to do so the player can use some advanced platformer mechanics such as wall jump and ledge grab.
Starborne is a new strategy MMO where you take on the role of space commander to compete against thousands of other players over control of the galaxy. Forge alliances, build massive fleets and wage wars to expand your space station into a galactic empire! The game takes place on a seamless map which can currently support up to 4000 concurrent players. Due to its slow-paced nature in a persistent universe, games in Starborne take months to reach the crucial endgame phase, where the surviving alliances duke it out to become the uncontested winner.
In a grim dystopian future, where mankind has scattered across the galaxy and the human society has split into two distinct classes, you are a poor stateless outcast forced to live off scraps from derelict alien stations and ships in the outer space, yet you dream of becoming a privileged citizen and living on the surface of a habitable planet, enjoying non-synthetic air, water and food. A fabled alien derelict ship somewhere within the Deep Sky sector of space is your voucher for a citizenship and a promise of cozy life on a hospitable planet.
