Soulsborne-Inspired Sci-Fi Adventure DOLMEN Resumes Crowdfunding

Published

Dolmen

Following the failure of its Kickstarter campaign earlier this month, DOLMEN has resumed its crowdfunding efforts, this time via Crytivo.

The new platform provides three tiers of funding, ranging from USD$24.99—which provides alpha access and a digital wallpaper pack as its main perks—to $69.99, which provides access to a digital soundtrack, comic book, and artbook. The developers at Massive Work Studio previously sought $90,000 and came within $4,000 of that goal before the Kickstarter’s failure.

Following the shortfall of that earlier effort, the team announced that it is looking into alternative release options, including partnering with a publisher or attempting a second Kickstarter campaign.

For those unfamiliar with DOLMEN, the game is an action RPG blending sci-fi elements with cosmic horror. Players take the role of an astronaut abandoned on the hostile planet of Revion Prime in an adventure drawing influence from the Soulsborne saga while simultaneously implementing survival mechanics. More details on the project are available on its Crytivo page, where interested gamers can also pledge their financial support.

Notably, the Crytivo platform does not support projects that employ “exploitative microtransactions, loot boxes, and day-one DLC.”

Telltale Games Catalog to be Removed From GOG Next Week

Published

Telltale

Fans of the late developer Telltale Games should hurry to pick up its games quick, as PC players may not be able to buy the titles for much longer.

Digital retailer GOG has announced that Telltale’s game will be listed from the store’s website come May 27.

The Wolf Among Us, Tales from the Borderlands, and Batman: The Enemy Within are just a few of the titles that will fall victim to the delisting. Tales from the Borderlands specifically was already removed from Steam sometime this week.

Fans of Telltale’s Borderlands spin-off have a sliver of hope however, as 2K says that it is working to bring the title back to digital platforms as soon as it can. A 2K spokesperson confirmed the news to Eurogamer.

“We are working to get Tales from the Borderlands back up on digital storefronts as soon as possible. All prior digital purchases of the game will of course still be honoured and supported.”

There is no word on if the same will happen over at Steam or other digital retailers, but fans should assume the worst. The internet-wide delisting is a result of Telltale’s demise late last year.

Though much of the Telltale catalog will be affected, its most influential title, The Walking Dead, will still be made available through the Epic Games Store.

Those who already own any of the games delisting next week should note that they will still be able to play the games as they please.
