One-Eyed: Cats and Apocalypse

Newly announced One-Eyed: Cats and Apocalypse is a puzzle game that will see players take on the role of a cat trying to survive as the world ends.

The game takes place during the apocalypse, where humanity is under threat of total extinction. As a result of a catastrophic war, the four horsemen of the apocalypse have descended upon Earth. Using their demonic minions, the horsemen have begun to possess the last surviving humans to do their bidding.

The game will feature 2.5D visuals and contain elements of both puzzlers and platformers. Taking inspiration from the likes of Limbo, One-Eyed: Cats and Apocalypse will force players to experiment as they figure out how to overcome each obstacle.

A unique gameplay hook is the need to influence nearby humans to interact with the world. The player will be limited in their actions due to the fact they are a cat, meaning the majority of the gameplay will revolve around controlling AI characters.

The team behind One-Eyed: Cats and Apocalypse expect it to release in the second half of 2020. Windows, Mac, and Linux versions of the game are currently in the works. You can follow the official Twitter account to keep up to date.

Ubisoft Discusses How Uplay Plus Will Improve Communication With Players

Ubisoft Uplay+

Ubisoft believes that its new subscription service Uplay Plus will help the publisher improve communication with players.

Alain Corre, the executive director of EMEA at Ubisoft, spoke to GamesIndustry.biz where he outlined the vision and strategy for the company’s new subscription service. He explained that Uplay Plus will help boost communication with players, and the feedback it receives will help improve Ubisoft’s games.

“The reason behind our subscription service… it gives more possibilities for our fans to play our games and we can talk to them. We can keep them in our worlds, we can discuss with them and—thanks to what they say and the way they behave—we can feed that back into our games development. When we are in control of that within our ecosystem, we feel it’s beneficial for our fans. That’s ultimately what we want to do; we want to have more contact with them, more interaction, listening more to what they want and improve based on what they say.”

Corre highlighted that Ubisoft will not solely focus its efforts on Uplay Plus; players will still be able to pick up any of the publishers games either physically or as digital downloads. He explained that the company’s strategy moving into a subscription service is to adapt with modern consumer tends of gamers.

“We are still keeping the traditional model whether they buy our games in a store or download them. It’s really a case of offering the possibilities. Consumers are evolving really fast, and we want to adapt to what they want and propose new things to them, as well as keep the other means of distribution.”

Furthermore Ubisoft revealed that Uplay Plus and all past and future games will be available on the Google Stadia. Ubisoft was an early vocal supporter of Google’s new console, especially as the upcoming console focuses solely on streaming games.
