Heroes Ravage: Rise of an NPC is the appropriately named RPG that aims to put a spin on the genre and it is now on Kickstarter.

In the game, players take on the role of the everyday NPC. Protecting the fruits of their labor in a classic RPG style is how developer Pixel Dinos is turning the gameplay tables. Be sure to watch the Heroes Ravage trailer down below to get a better look at what is to come.

Though The Legend of Zelda‘s inspiration is overt, Pixel Dinos lists plenty of unique traits players can expect when the game launches.

The Kickstarter campaign ends on April 1 and currently has about a third of the project funding needed. Heroes Ravage is scheduled to launch early 2020 for PC.

Layers of Fear 2 Launching Late Next Month

Layers of Fear 2

Layers of Fear 2 has been talked about for a while now and is finally coming late next month.

Announced today by publisher Gun Media, the sequel to the psychological romp through artistic ego Layers of Fear is set to launch May 28 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Gameplay-wise, the sequel looks to cover similar ground as its predecessor. As a first-person psychological horror with “an emphasis on exploration and story,” players meander through heavily-scripted set-pieces while solving puzzles and being scared a whole lot.

Layers of Fear 2, though, will be swapping the paintbrush for the dizzying heights of Hollywood. According to the game’s Steam synopsis, players “control a Hollywood actor who heeds the call of an enigmatic director to take on the lead role in a film shot aboard an ocean liner.”

Stifled by their own acting ambitions, the protagonist finds themselves alone and marooned on an increasingly nightmarish boat. The game’s unnamed protagonist must navigate their own past and the challenges the director sets them to unlock the secret to not just the film they are starring in, but their own motivations.

The original Layers of Fear was a captivating take on modern, story-driven horror, so the sequel’s inventive premise and greater scope are welcomed. While the sequel is embarking to a radically different setting, the title looks likely to recapture the original’s claustrophobic, atmospheric level design.
