Welcome to the Nano Gaming News Weekly Rewind for May 16, 2020 where we cover stories and events that we missed over the past week.
Last Tuesday, the asymmetrical multiplayer OBEY exited early access. On Thursday, publisher Toplitz Productions released their first behind the scenes look at Medieval Dynasty. Friday handed Rune II players some good news with a new update full of combat goodies and a huge discount for new players.
For those that missed some of our other stories, here is a quick recap of a few of stories NGN covered this past week. An Egg Can Dream, the 3D platformer and time-paradox arena shooter Quantum League both set release dates. Digital Dragons held an indie celebration where several indie games and demos were showcased including Unto The End. Early access arena fun started in KnockOut Party and players can learn all about MAN buses in Bus Mechanic Simulator.
OBEY Exits Early Access
Developed by solo indie developer Dez and published by The Lo-Fi Apocalypse, OBEY is a highly asymmetrical multiplayer game where winning means getting your opponents to help you win.
The action is all about winning and winning means players will try to coerce or even bribe their opponents. To win, all one has to do is to make the most money by the end of the round. In a way the game plays out as a social and psychological version of king of the hill gameplay with stealth mechanics and a wide range of items to creatively influence opponents.
For the fastest means of making money, one must control the Robo and then enforce their will with deadly force assuming one can find any misbehaving opponents hiding in the dark. However, killing opponents might not always be the best solution. Instead, one can entice them to do their bidding and then the real fun can begin.
OBEY is available is on Humble Bundle which includes a DRM Free and a Steam key for Windows, Mac and Linux. For more information about OBEY visit the game’s website at obeygame.com.
Medieval Dynasty First Video
Publisher Toplitz Productions, who is known for its dynasty series, and developer Render Cube who is known Monster League, gave a first behind the scenes look at the upcoming Medieval Dynasty. The game features a feudal survival and life-simulation game in a 3D world.
Unlike other feudal simulation games on the market, players are not some king or queen. As a peasant who works in their small hovel, must use clever crafting, social interactions, and skilled resource management to go from a meager peasant to a powerful lord of the land. Of course all of this is done by surviving hard winters, sweltering summers and all of the dangers one would face off against during the middle ages.
Medieval Dynasty is scheduled for a 2020 early access Steam release. Players can wishlist the game now. For more information about Medieval Dynasty visit its official website here.
