Hamburg-based indie studio ROCKFISH Games announces that its debut title EVERSPACE will launch through Game Preview on Xbox One for $29.99, today. It will also launch through Game Preview on Windows 10 later this month and be the very first ID@Xbox title supporting Play Anywhere featuring cross-saves and buy once, play anywhere. (Those who buy the game on Xbox One prior to the Windows 10 release will receive the Windows 10 version when it launches.)
The fast-paced roguelike space shooter launched on Steam last week and a month earlier than initially estimated during its wildly successful Kickstarter. It made it to the top sellers in no time fueled by above 90% positive reviews. In spite of its unfinished state of development, EVERSPACE received high praise for its stunning visuals, engaging gameplay, intuitive controls and overall polish from gamers, influencers and the gaming press alike.
“When demoing EVERSPACE at the Xbox booth at E3, Gamescom, NerdHQ, Insomnia and the Microsoft Pre-Pax event, it got great feedback from anyone and it clearly didn’t disappoint at its release on PC last week,” said Chris Charla, Director ID@Xbox at Microsoft. “We are super excited to bring it to Xbox One and Windows 10 through Game Preview, even more being the first ID@Xbox title to support Play Anywhere.”
For the launch, an all-new boss fight, some voice-acted dialogs, a new planet type, additional Outlaw stations as well as many interface and gameplay tweaks have been added. Further additions and improvements feature most requested options like turning off v-sync, more granular graphic settings, and improved support for ultra-wide monitors. In the coming months, two additional player ships will be added: The Colonial Scout, much smaller than the current Colonial Interceptor, will feature extreme maneuverability, a higher top speed but a weaker hull. It comes with a cloaking device and sniper weapons as starting gear. The upcoming Colonial Gunship will be the slowest of the three space ships but will compensate through a much stronger hull and an upgradable turret on top.
The Full Release is scheduled for end of Q1 2017 and will feature a fully voice-acted story with several thoughtfully designed characters, situation-based events, as well as the Hardcore Mode and full VR support. The price of the game will be raised to $39.99 / €36.99 / £29.99 when it hits full release.

The Splashteam and The Sidekicks have announced that Splasher, the fast paced indie platformer for fans of Super Meat Boy, will be releasing January 24th, 2017 for PC, Mac, Playstation 4 and Xbox One.
Splasher is Romain Claude’s first indie game after working for years at Ubisoft as game designer and level designer on best sellers like Rayman Origins and Rayman Legends.
Splasher is an arcade and action oriented 2D platformer, filled with humor and surprises. It offers the players to challenge their skills and velocity in a wacky cartoon world created by the artist Richard Vatinel, alias Gromy.
Loaded with a paint canon, the player will boldly attack Inkorp, the paint factory in order to rescue his companions, the Splashers, and put an end to the evil plans of its big boss, the ignominious Docteur. Each color offers a special power: stick to the walls, bounce higher, confuse foes…. It should be used wisely to achieve long and demanding levels filled with delirious and devious traps.
Splasher is currently in its last development stage and going through an extended polishing effort including a collaboration with RealMyop speedgaming specialist in the famous French youtuber collective Nesblog. Every level has been optimized to offer players with a challenge funny for everyone but hard to master for hardcore players. When released, experts and newbies will compete in several timed modes and try to reach the top of the world ladder. More collaboration are planed before the game release, on the music side in particular with upcoming featuring announcements.
A pre-order offer will soon be available on the game’s official website for a very special collectors edition.

At the Tokyo Game Show 2016, Konami revealed an extensive 15 minute gameplay demo of their upcoming title Metal Gear Survive, a cooperative Metal Gear title that pits players against….. zombies? The game has received quite the backlash since it’s announcement in mid August, but despite recent events with Hideo Kojima’s departure, it appears Konami seeks to prove that this new installment in the Metal Gear series is much more than a “cash grab”.
The demo, all being powered by the Fox Engine found in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, features a cooperative mission where four Motherbase soldiers must tread through a zombie infested map completing objectives in hopes to return home after being transported to an alternate world. In typical zombie game fashion, players are tasked with collecting materials to build tools and weapons to aid them in their survival. Like previous titles, you can choose to use items to help you sneak around the enemy, such as lures, or opt to take out the enemies one by one using stealth or the variety of melee and ranged weapons at your disposal.

Perfectly ParaNormal’s darkly comic adventure Manual Samuel will hit PlayStation 4 on October 11th and PC and Xbox One on the 14th of October, publisher Curve Digital has revealed today.
The game challenges players to guide the titular hero through the worst 24 hours of his life, doing everything – everything – manually.
This extraordinary day begins with Samuel being knocked over and killed, and all being well ends with him living happily ever after, in a genuinely laugh-out-loud tale of love, redemption and feces.
Billed as a ‘dexterity adventure’, Manual Samuel makes everyday situations increasingly slapstick as simple tasks such as getting dressed become hilarious set pieces where forgetting to breathe can mean the difference between successfully getting your pants on. As the day progresses, Sam must keep his girlfriend and his boss happy – all whilst keeping Death happy.
Players control every aspect of Samuel. Right and left stick to walk, sure, but don’t forget to press to breathe in, press to breath out, press to blink, hit the triggers to walk – left foot, right foot, left foot, breathe in, right foot, blink, breath out, right foot fall over. Get up.
Samuel’s manual affliction paves the way for some truly hysterical moments. From taking a leak to driving a car, the game makes a marvel of the mundane. And as the game progresses, Samuel’s adventures become even more surreal, making this one of the most spectacularly silly games in a long, long time.
