On the back of the recent revival of management sim games, a new studio out of Prague has decided to tackle healthcare with an upcoming game called Project Hospital.
Superflight is a PC game I’ve been having a lot of fun with this week. To get an idea of what it’s like, imagine if Tony Hawk could fly.
A recent mandate by Sony that requires new games being published for its platforms to be rated by the ESRB has created obstacles for physical versions of indie games. In at least one case it’s led directly to the cancellation of a project that was already underway.
Yesterday, at Sony’s glitzy Paris Games Show presentation, a pastel, nonviolent game about being a human-dragon hybrid surprised viewers with its same-day announcement and release.
