Surreal Adventure Oneirous Channels Life is Strange in Debut Trailer

Published

Oneirous

Oneirous looks difficult to categorise, and its debut trailer by Coal Valley Games has only supported the game’s esotericism further.

The first-person, surrealist allows players to assume the role of Liam as he attempts to escape what he believes is a dream. His dream appears realistic, though, before descending into ethereal, uncanny depictions of his life. Mechanically, the title is a puzzle game at its core, combining escape-room, crafting/building mechanics, and classic adventure together.

The stand out so far is the game’s distinctly Western art style and vibe, conjuring memories of Life is Strange‘s depiction of Oregonian life. Be sure to check out the game’s Steam synopsis below, as well as its acid-flashback-inducing trailer:

“Will you be able to break the vicious circle? Can you regain control? Experience the surreal adventure filled with puzzles and psychedelic visions.”

Kalypso Media has announced new downloadable content for its rail management simulator title Railway Empire.

In the new ‘France’ DLC, players can build their railway in the wake of the exile of Emperor Napoleon III. The Third Republic has taken power following the collapse of the French monarchy, so players have the power to decide the industrial future of France.

Players can decide to help rebuild the country’s infrastructure (alongside the new “Eiffel Tower”), or to increase the strength of the country’s borders to prepare for military conflict.

The DLC is set between 1874–1890 and adds 10 train engines, over 12 tradeable goods, and 31 new cities, as well as new songs and characters. The map can be played in the Free Game and Sandbox modes.

Railway Empire: ‘France’ is now available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One for US$12.99. The game has also received a new update (Update 1.9).

Check out the trailer for the new DLC below.

OnlySP’s Rhain Radford-Burns discussed the importance of Railway Empire in the wider genre of historical games, noting that “the developer grants an insight into the importance of such seemingly menial tasks.”
