Welcome to the Nano Gaming News Weekly Rewind for June 20, 2020 where we cover stories and events that we missed over the past week.
Last Thursday, Toadman Interactive and Nodbrim Interactive released their gothic horror Westmark Manor on Steam. Also on Thursday, Game Operators released Paws and Soul: First Step for free on Steam ahead of their July release of the full game. Earlier, on Wednesday, Megapop Games announced their roguelite cyberpunk deck builder, Haxity, was jumping into early access.
For those that missed some of our other stories, here is a quick recap of a few of stories NGN covered this past week. The Steam Game Festival: Summer Edition is underway and Solasta: Crown of the Magister along with Unto the End released updated demo’s for the event. Barn Finders is hunting down some good deals on its Steam release. Curious Expedition 2 ventured into an early access release and Terraforming Earth is having Turret Trouble in its latest free update.
Westmark Manor Release
Players get to explore and discover what is lurking in the deepest and darkest corners of the mansion. It is a spine-tingling survival horror puzzle inspired from H.P. Lovecraft. Only after a trip through the occult will one be able to solve the puzzles and understand the terrifying mysteries and dark entities that inhabit the Westmark Estate.
As a small two-person team, Westmark Manor has been a deeply personal project for both of us at Nodbrim. There is a darkness in all of us and a need to find the light, and I hope players enjoy their own personal journey within the walls of Westmark Manor.Martin Kupski, Co-Founder and Creative Director, Nodbrim Interactive
Paws and Soul: First Step
In this demo players find themselves reborn as a wolf. They, who were once human, experience a thought provoking story that allows them to discover their wolf’s human past and what had happened before they became a wolf. The journey takes players through the secrets of reincarnation, rebirth, and karma while exploring the connection between wolf and man.
Haxity is Out Now in Early Access
Megapop Games last Wednesday released their cyberpunk roguelite deck builder onto Steam as an early access title. The action filled game lets players draft a deck, modify their fighter, and work their way to victory.
At the game’s core is the card game. However, it does have the classic fighter feel where one’s own punches, kicks, and cybernetics will dictate the flow of the battle. In other words it is where Slay the Spire meets Street Fighter with roguelite action, card battles and a PvP twist.
There are two game modes: Versus and Campaign. Versus matches pits players against matched opponents or friends who challenge friends in intense one-on-one matches. Campaign mode allows players to explore the possibilities of deck building while deep diving into the world of Haxity.
Haxity is available on Steam as an early access game for Windows PC. The game’s base price is $12.99 USD.
