Norse Horror Draugen Will be a Standalone Game, Not the Beginning of a Series




Following Draugen‘s impressive debut trailer in November, the developer Red Thread Games has revealed that no possibility exists for the title to evolve into a franchise.

Replying to a perturbed fan on Twitter, the developer stated that the game will be standalone:

Draugen is set along a stretch of Norwegian coast in the 1920s where players will encounter all kinds of Norse-inspired horrors. Interestingly, players will experience Draugen alongside a “living, breathing, independent companion” who will respond to the game’s “realistic and dynamic dialogue system.”

The synopsis of the story available on Steam reads as a classic interpretation of finding a missing loved one, albeit through the lens of the relatively uncommon aesthetic of Norwegian horror:

“The year is 1923. You play Edward Charles Harden, an American traveller who’s come to Norway to find his missing sister. But you’re not alone: at every step of the way, Edward’s accompanied by his ward, Lissie; a gregarious, independent and enigmatic young woman. Together, you must explore this scenic coastal community — nestled amongst the fjords and mountains of rural Norway—in your search for Edward’s sister, and unearth the darkness that lies beneath the picturesque surface.”

Draugen is set to release in 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Where The Water Tastes Like Wine Adds Chinese-American Stories and Chinese Localization



Where The Water Tastes Like Wine

Where The Water Tastes Like Wine will be receiving a new content update featuring Chinese-American stories, including full Chinese language support.

According to Steam, a new content update entitled “Gold Mountain” is available for anyone who owns the game. The update focuses on new tales focusing on Chinese Americans and their impact on American history and culture. The Steam update also explains the reasoning for including these stories:

“The Gold Mountain update was created to honor the millions of Chinese-Americans generally overlooked in American history. We hope that you enjoy the new original stories that are included in the update and look forward to reading all of your thoughts.”

Additionally, the ‘Gold Mountain’ update includes full Chinese language support for the game’s ‘Fireside Chats’, which is a free standalone experience that adds exclusive story content to the game’s 16 characters. The full Chinese version of the main game will release once the Chinese localization team, led by Ryan Zhang, finishes the new content.

OnlySP’s Derek Swinhart was left disappointed by the game when it released last year, stating that it promised “a long and exciting road-trip across unknown territory, but ends up only offering flat tires and postcards of better places.”
