Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey

On August the 28th, a dev from the Assassin’s Creed team released a new game. This game is called Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey. It fits in the survival genre mostly, with action, adventure, and all that comes with it. Now, I was told that I should be good at this game, as I would appear to be the natural leader of a bunch of primitive primates… Pretty sure that wasn’t meant a...

Mavericks: Proving Grounds’ Developer Goes Under

It is with much sadness that I must announce the passing of Automation games, the makers of Deceit, and also the 1000-player battle royale game Mavericks: Proving Grounds. It was announced yesterday that they have been placed under administration for financial reasons. You can read the official announcement here. Apparently Deceit has already been bought by another developer, which is good news fo...

A quick look at XERA: Survival

From the deep dark depths of the South Island of New Zealand (specifically Invercargill), a new game emerges from the darkness, foraging around for roots and leaves. Well, not really. The game is the brainchild of Kiwi developers Spotted Kiwi Interactive, and was released into the wild (ie. early access) on the 24th of May. What is XERA: Survival? Well, quite simply: XERA: Survival is an action fo...

The Division 2 – Geoff’s Thoughts

To be fair, after playing The Division 2 (henceforth “Div2“) private and public betas, I didn’t think I would shell out nearly $100 for the basic game package. I felt like I had probably done most of the things that one could do, including the PVP aspects. But then…I got bored, and it was my birthday, so I went and paid for it. And I wasn’t disappointed. Let’s r...

Survisland – The hardest survival game in 2018, they say

Imagine.. You wake up lying on a beach on a deserted island. All you have is a pair of jeans and a tshirt. Fortunately the sun is shining, but you see dark clouds looming. You’re hungry and night is approaching. You check your vitals, everything seems okay, but you’re tired. You see a coconut palm, and some banana trees. You don’t have the energy to climb a tree. You look around&...
