Among other things, we can find one of the modern classics of the horrific genre on PC history of playing scary once the night has fallen or the blinds drawn, while the other pixel-art and survival will be on the program.
Du scare ou du cochon
We go back for the first title of the week - in 2013 precisely, even if that seems to be a whole other differentnt century.
An indirect sequel to the horror game phenomenon on Amnesia: The Dark Descent from the developers of Frictional Games and released in 2010 on PC, A Machine for Pigs is in the lineage of its predecessor by offering an experience playing with the perception of reality and imagination in a murky atmosphere in first person view.
This “second chapter” developed by studio The Chinese Room proved to be another hit with game streamers when it was released on PC before landing on current-gen consoles a few years later. The timing is not trivial - Frictional Games is preparing the imminent release of Amnesia: Rebirth, the third game in the saga scheduled for October 20.
For those who are not the kind to scare oneself, the other game offered this week is of a completely different kind; Kingdom: New Lands is adorned with a very polished retro pixel-art skin for a resolute experienceModern ent on the frontiers of survival and strategy by placing the player in the shoes of a king or queen in charge of expanding his kingdom while avoiding the various threats to the throne.
Developed by Thomas van den Berg and Marco Bancale in 2016, New Lands is actually a revised and improved version of the original Kingdom game released in 2015 on PC.
