First Look at the Norwegian Psychological Horror Game Draugen Released



Red Thread Games has finally released the first trailer for its upcoming psychological horror game, Draugen, four years after its initial announcement.

Along with an updated website and Steam store page, Red Thread released a new story synopsis for the game:

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 will have players exploring a stretch of coastal Norway set in the 1920s. One of the more interesting aspects of Draugen, however, is that players will have a “living, breathing, independent companion” to accompany them.

According to the Steam page, players will interact with this companion through the use of a “realistic and dynamic dialogue system”. Along with that, the game world will change with the weather and Edward, the protagonist’s, “mental state.”

Draugen will release on the PC, PS4 and Xbox One in 2019.

Pokémon Developer Game Freak Emphasizes Original Game Creation




Game Freak, best known for the Pokémon franchise, is starting to emphasize and prioritize original game creation.

In an interview with Video Game Chronicle, Masayuki Onoue, a director at Game Freak, says that the company has launched Gear Project, an initiative in which developers pitch ideas during slower periods between big releases to create more original games other than just Pokémon.

Onoue also spoke about Production Team 1 and Team 2 at Game Freak, the first prioritizing Gear Project for the company as a whole and the second focusing on Pokemon. He noted that Gear Project allows the developers to gain more experience working on different platforms such as PlayStation, Xbox, and PC, as well as transferring new skills and techniques they learned back to the Pokémon team.

Some of the games that Game Freak has released so far through Gear Project are HarmoKnight, Pocket Card Jockey, Tembo the Badass Elephant, and Giga Wrecker. Game Freak is also developing Town, an RPG game that was shown off in a Nintendo Direct back in September 2018 and is due out this year.

Additionally, Game Freak is working on Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, the latest entries in Nintendo’s flagship franchise. Both of those are set to release later this year.
