BEDLAM: A Roguelike RPG that You Need to Get to Know Better

I know how some of us out there are scared of kickstarting digital titles, but there are a couple of exceptions to the rule, and it is my opinion that BEDLAM is one of those exceptions. To prove that I believe I've already thrown my money into the ring to help make this game a reality, and now I'm calling upon you, brave and noble gamers to help bring the project home. They are currently (today is the 20th of October, 2014) sitting FOUR days away. They are also sitting at about 16K under their goal. Now I know what you are thinking, that seems like a bit of a stretch to cover in 4 days. Well that's why I'm telling you about this game because I think that that thinking is going to be proved wrong, and I'm just giving you a heads up on this so that you don't miss out on the chance to help make it to the goal, that much faster. 

Now of course I could give you more information, but I think it is safe to say that the video, as well as the following stats, will do a better job, and really sell what this game is all about:

BEDLAM is a strategic single-player roguelike turn-based role-playing game, created for the PC and Mac utilizing 'The Banner Saga' engine.

The player is cast as the mysterious Mechanic, the last known member of a once-thriving guild of brilliant inventors, intrepid travelers and operators of the rolling fortresses called Dozers.

As the Mechanic, you are in charge of commanding your crew in battles, managing your resources, improving your Dozer, interacting with various characters, and protecting your passengers while navigating through the post-apocalyptic wasteland known as Bedlam.

Think you have what it takes? Then grab the controls, equip your Dozer, load your passengers, assemble your diverse battle-ready crew and prepare for your journey to a new destination on the far edge of Bedlam!

Remember – One chance and one crew to make it through!

  • Our unique blitz battle system! Turn-based combat with swift play, over-the-top animations, action point based movement and attack system, environments and battles gradually affect your crew, crew-buffing Dozer upgrades, and tide-changing Dozer weapons!
  • Roguelike influences and RPG features, including randomly generated encounters and discoveries, meaningful permadeath, three different supplies to manage, crew veteran rankings and incredible replay value.
  • Dozers, the gargantuan rolling fortresses covered in armor and weapons to protect passengers and crew during the journey through Bedlam.
  • Four unique enemy factions: MaraudersMutantsCyborgs and the A.I. - all with their own strengths and weaknesses.
  • Double-Down” (a New game+): Travel back through Bedlam for the opportunity to defeat merciless overlord King Viscera and his minions for untold riches... or the sacrifice of everything!

Google Announces Their OWN Android Gaming Console

Well it looks like Google is finally wanting to get in on all the action and create their own version of an Android console. Now I know this is going to sound crazy, but apparently they are going to call it the Nexus Player (Taking a page out of Amazon's playbook on that one). Now of course this will probably integrate directly into the GooglePlay marketplace. I hate to say this but this might really kick the little guys around pretty bad. I'm talking to you OUYA, GameStick, and hell maybe even the Amazon Fire TV.

Now here's the bad news, they have suspended pre-orders until the FCC approval process is complete. So I guess all we can do is look at the goodies being listed, and of course watching the site to see when you can pre-order again.

Here are the components being listed:

Chipset
  • 1.8GHz Quad Core, Intel® Atom™
  • Imagination PowerVR Series 6 Graphics 2D/3D Engine
Memory
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8GB storage

  • HDMI out (1920×1080@60Hz)

Unique Co-op Stealth Game Coming to the OUYA

I'm not even sure where to start with this one, but basically a very creative development team has decided to create a local co-op stealth game, that is set in an alternate reality 1980s. You will have two very famous figures at your control, and it is through the teamwork of these individuals you will be able to save the day. So who are these people? Well it's Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev of course. These two leaders have been kidnapped, and it is going to be through their metaphoric high-five giving, bad-ass puzzle solving skills, and all of their character that they will be able to win. For a more thorough look into this game I give you the press release for the game Reagan Gorbachev, by Team2Bit, coming on October 21st to the OUYA:

Mr. Gorbachev, Tear Down This Wall! The Forces of East and West Unite in Reagan Gorbachev, Coming Exclusively to OUYA

The Ultimate Odd Couple Gears Up for their Digital Debut in New Action Puzzler from Team2Bit

SANTA MONICA, Calif. – Oct. 15, 2014 – Team2Bit, the developer that brought youFist Puncher, today announced that local co-op stealth game Reagan Gorbachev will be coming exclusively to OUYA on October 21.  Fans of local co-op and Cold War politics will be able to take up arms as the incorrigible patriot Ronald Reagan and the famously flexible Mikhail Gorbachev, in an epic struggle to prevent the Cold War from heating up.

Reagan Gorbachev is set in the 1980s in an alternate universe, in which Reagan and Gorbachev are kidnapped by militant extremists during the famous 1986 Reykjavik Summit. Of course, the enemy of your enemy is your friend, and these decidedly kick-ass new friends will need to fight as a team if they hope to escape with their lives.

In this top-down stealth game, players must arm themselves with a mélange of munitions – everything from poisoned darts to katanas to high-powered rifles – and sneak or slash their way through rooms riddled with radical extremists who want nothing more than to take their lives. Reagan Gorbachev can accommodate one or two players, and will be available for $9.99.

Deponia On Sale, Limited Time Offer

 

Alright so I want to apologize, we are a bit late in posting this, so the 48 hour deal is going to be less than 48 hours, more like around 24 hours, but here's the deal. If you have still not, somehow, found your way to play the point and click adventure trilogy of Deponia, you can fix that for a 66% off discount. All you will need to do is go to the steam page, and then there you go.

If you are wondering if the series is worth picking up, well here's my very own reviews to all three pieces of the series:

Oh and in case 66% off means nothing to you without the actual money figures, even though you could just see if for yourself on the Steam Page. It would look something like this 13.59US$/ 13.59€/ 19,79 GBP.
