Welcome to the Nano Gaming News Weekly Rewind for May 23, 2020 where we cover stories and events that we missed over the past week.
Last Wednesday, the RPG card battler Deck of Ashes announced a June release date. On that same day, Ascend Digitally announced that soon one can battle poop on mobile too in Attack of the Evil Poop. When Friday rolled out, Curve Digital and Denki both informed the world that the Age of Enlightenment update is out for Autonauts.
For those that missed some of our other stories, here is a quick recap of a few of stories NGN covered this past week. Maneater ate its way onto the Epic Games store. While Steam saw several new games such as the FMV title Dark Nights with Poe and Munro and neon laser shooter VECTORLORD. An Egg Can Dream also rolled onto Steam and Embr set both PC and Stadia ablaze with its early access firefighting unsimulator.
Deck of Ashes Exits Early Access in June
After a little more than 14 months in early access, Deck of Ashes is ready to fight back Ash Curse. Published by Buka Entertainment and developed by AY Games, Deck of Ashes takes players into a dark fantasy world filled with RPG card battling and deck building.
There are four main characters with four storyline campaigns. There are loads of cards and even more card combinations that allow players to play in their own style. Death, like any great roguelike, is permanent, unless there is some black magic involved. Insert evil laughter here.
Deck of Ashes was released on April 11, 2019 as an early access game on Steam and is currently available for $14.99 USD. A Deluxe Collections bundle is also available that features the OST, Digital Art Book, Print-Ready Posters, and Supporter Pack for $46.50 USD. For more information about Deck of Ashes visit the game’s website at deckofashes.com.
Attack of the Evil Poop to Drop on Mobile
The poo puns are too easy, but fighting back an evil number two isn’t. Ascend Digitally is bursting at the seems with their latest announcement of an impeding mobile release. So in other words, soon instead of just on PC, players can battle poo while on the loo.
The game features over 10 different enemies, weapons and items to defeat each evil turd that won’t just flush.
Autonauts Release Age of Enlightenment Update
Curve Digital and developer Denki have released the sixth update to Autonauts titled Age of Enlightenment. This is the most significant update for the coding and automation game.
Players now have more options than ever to build and optimize their colonies by creating and programming their own robotic workforce. For the first time, players can culture their colonists with automated art, establish ethical silk production, export goods by building a space port, and achieve cultural transcendence. Along this journey one can earn their in-game avatar a cool medal.
When we launched on Steam last October, we had big, far-reaching plans for what we wanted to add to the game. The new ‘Age of Enlightenment’ expansion marks a milestone in achieving our dreams. Combined with our addition of Steam Workshop support, there’s no telling how Autonauts will evolve now its future is even more directly placed in player hands.Gary Penn, Creative Director, Denki
