Here’s a first look at Thirty Flights of Loving dev’s sci-fi sandbox shooter Skin Deep

Blendo Games, the developer behind such celebrated (and delightfully oddball) offerings as Thirty Flights of Loving and Quadrilateral Cowboy, has unveiled its latest project – “immersive” first-person sci-fi shooter Skin Deep. “Stalk through a vast non-linear starship and sneak, subvert, and sabotage to survive in this stellar sandbox,” explains Blendo Games on Skin Deep’s newly materialised Steam page, “You’re outnumbered, outgunned, and have no shoes.” “When insurance corporations want to keep valuables safe, they freeze you and stow you onto their cargo starships,” it continues, “And when space pirates board…

Something strange is happening to Fortnite’s floating island

Fortnite’s map is continually evolving – we’ve had rockets, meteors, and most recently a giant purple cube (nicknamed Kevin) which spent several weeks rolling over the grassy hills of Lazy Links. Having transformed Loot Lake into a millennial version of the Wizard of Oz, the cube seems to have reached the next phase of its transformation stage, as Fortnite’s floating island is starting to look a little – well – different. You may recall the island’s house used to only have giant purple crystals in the basement, but in the…

Being openly political in games is “bad for business”, The Division developer says

Video games are big business, and publishers inevitably want to sell as many copies as possible. So why risk alienating half your audience by being openly political if half your audience might be turned off by what you’re trying to say? That’s the point which The Division developer Alf Condelius made today, speaking to Eurogamer sister site GamesIndustry.biz. “It’s a balance because we cannot be openly political in our games,” Condelius said. “So for example in The Division, it’s a dystopian future and there’s a lot of interpretations that it’s…

Sean Bean will be killed off again, this time as Hitman 2’s first elusive target

Tom Phillips News Editor @tomphillipsEG Everyone knows Sean Bean dies in (almost) every film he’s in. But now you’ll get to kill him yourself – as the first Elusive Target in Hitman 2. Better known as Boromir, Sharpe or poor old Ned Stark, Sean Bean will appear in Hitman 2 as a former MI5 agent – in a very knowing nod to his classic role as 006 in GoldenEye. “I even managed to make them think I’d been blown up,” Trevelyn – sorry, Bean – says in the trailer below:…

Three Crysis games now backwards compatible on Xbox One

Microsoft currently seems to be on a mission to make every single game Xbox backwards compatible. Which is great news for us, really, as creatures of nostalgia. The latest games to be made backwards compatible are those in the Crysis series – including the original, and sequels Crysis 2 and 3. The first two science fiction shooters by Crytek were released on Xbox 360 in 2011, with Crysis 3 following in 2013, and focus on military personnel in nanosuits (exoskeletons) who are sent to undertake missions for the United States…

The first Gen 4 Pokémon arrived yesterday afternoon in Pokémon Go – and out of the 20-something new species, three will be particularly hard to find.

The Quiet Man’s second playthrough will add sound in a game about deafness

It seems a little odd to instantly undermine your game’s central selling point. Nonetheless, that’s exactly what’s happening with Square Enix’s new title. The Quiet Man, which is due to release on PC and PlayStation this November, centres on the journey of a deaf protagonist as he searches for a kidnapped “songstress” in a dark city. According to the game’s Steam page, one of the key features of the game is that players can “experience the world in the way Dane does” – in other words, without sound. How strange…

Tin Hearts is Lemmings meets A Christmas Carol – in VR

Tin Hearts is a new VR game that’s part Lemmings, part Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. Like Lemmings, Tin Hearts is about leading a troupe of cute things (in this case, toy soldiers) from point A to point B, but in the world of virtual reality. This means that you’re often moving in and inspecting things, intimately. And like A Christmas Carol, Tin Hearts has a Victorian Britain setting and an otherworldly premise. You play a mysterious spirit which appears to be disconnected from the world, with power only over…
