Welcome to the Nano Gaming News Weekly Rewind for July 18, 2020 where we cover stories and events that we missed over the past week.
This past week gave gamers a fast-paced shoot’em up last Tuesday with Neon Abyss. On the day after Curse of the Dead Gods dropped a patch and a roadmap for the game during its early access period. Then on Thursday players were treated with a puzzle game about adorable hats in Ultra Hat Dimension.
Here is a quick recap, for those that missed, of a few stories NGN covered this past week. This past week was really busy with game releases with Towaga: Among Shadows, the twin-stick shooter taking aim. Paws and Soul offered a deep spiritual exploration adventure while Modest Hero explored the last hours of a man in 1848 Paris during the Age of Revolutions. The Outcast Lovers continues the story from the The Night Fisherman and Airport Contraband released a new teaser trailer.
Neon Abyss PC & Console launch
Gameplay features a run and gun shoot’em up style that dives into the frantic colorful abyss. There are unlimited item synergies and with the dungeon evolution system, each run is a unique player experience. Every choice made alters the ruleset so no two dungeon runs will ever be the same.
With more than 400 different items within the dungeons, during one’s journey they can collect and hatch pets or uncover and complete minigames located all throughout the game. In addition there is a set of character customization options to give players a more personal touch on their character.
Neon Abyss is now available on PC through Humble Bundle and Steam for $19.99 USD. The game is also available on the Nintendo Switch where it may also be purchased through Humble Bundle for $19.99 USD. For the latest information and details about Neon Abyss visit the game’s website.
Curse of the Dead Gods Roadmap
French indie developer Passtech Games and publisher Focus Home Interactive have released the first update to the Serpent’s Catacombs update for Curse of the Dead Gods. In addition a roadmap for the game’s development path through early access has been provided.
In the latest update two new champion weapons have been added the witch’s crook called K’etyaam yaan and the dread claw called Disembowler. Pistols have new icons and 3D models. Enemies who are on fire will now take small amounts of fire damage over time. In addition several balancing changes and bug fixes were included and can be read about on the game’s Steam page here.
The roadmap includes a slow down in the updates to just one per month. This will allow the developer to focus on more significant changes to the game as well as a new temple, new traps, new environments, new curses, and more.
Curse of the Dead Gods is available now as an early access title on Humble Bundle and Steam at a regular price of $14.99 USD for Windows PC. For more information about Curse of the Dead Gods visit the game’s website at curse-of-the-dead-gods.com or follow @PlayDeadGods on Twitter.
Ultra Hat Dimension Out Now
Kitsune Games has released their adorable puzzle game, Ultra Hat Dimension, that is about crazy hats and getting punched for wearing them.
After hat designer Bea arrives to accept her award in the annual hat design contest everything seems to go off the rails. The normally peaceful Spluffs have turned violent and now are punching anyone wearing a different hat.
The game features a grid-based puzzle system that requires players to maneuver and displace. There are five seasonally themed floors that consist of 65 puzzles. During the journey one can expect to uncover the truth behind the curse afflicting the Spluffs through an introductory cut scene and story breaks between levels.
Ultra Hat Dimension is available now on Steam and itch.io for Windows, Mac and Linux at the price of $4.99 USD. Publisher Ratalaika Games has also ported the game to the PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
