New First Person Parkour Game ‘Failsafe’ Heads to Kickstarter



A new first person parkour game by Game Over has hit Kickstarter.

Failsafe, a game about “exploration, forgotten worlds and secrets” is an adventure inspired by the stories of famous Studio Ghibli auteur Hayao Miyazaki. Its other influences include “the fluidity of Journey and the monolithic scale of Shadow of the Colossus” according to their Kickstarter page. It aims to provide a large environment for the players to explore as they navigate their way around the remains of a mysterious civilisation, all while getting to do some pretty cool parkour.

So far the game has had 620 backers and has raised $16,411 of its $80,000 dollar goal, but with 21 days to go it has every chance of making it.

The game, which is currently in the alpha state, will first be released on PC, Mac and Linux and the developers also intend to release it on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 at some point after that.


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.
