Warparty Bringing Strategy to the Stone Age

Published

 on

Warparty

With Conan Unconquered not set to arrive for several more months, Warparty might sate fans thirsting for a stone age RTS experience.

Warparty has been available via Steam Early Access since October last year, though the V1 launch on March 28 will introduce a story mode.

The length and exact premise of the campaign is unclear, but developer Crazy Monkey Studios describes is as “a gripping primordial tale of ancient alliances and bloodshed.”

The new mode will come in addition to the multiplayer, skirmish, and wave-based survival modes already embedded in Warparty.

Players take the role of one of three factions as they battle against both human and bestial foes. A glimpse of the classically-styled RTS gameplay is available in the video below.

Not only will the game receive its full PC launch on March 28, but it will become available on the PlayStation 4, Switch, and Xbox One on the same date.

Sci-Fi Adventure Tether Back in Development, Demo Released

Published

 on

Tether

Freesphere Entertainment has announced that Tether is back in active development, almost a year after it was put on hold.

Alongside the announcement, the team has finally released the prototype version of the previous incarnation of the project for free on itch.io. According to the announcement, the decision to release the demo came because “it seemed silly to have years of hard work sat there for people who worked on it to not get any recognition.”

The post also suggests that Freesphere has gone back to the drawing board for the project, saying that it is seeking to reduce the scope of the story and hinting at a “new direction.”

The demo is a long time coming, as creative director Mark Gregory first told OnlySP late last year that it would be made available as part of a larger interview discussing some of the problems and struggles faced by the team members, which included underfunding, a lack of publisher interest, and personal burnout.

For anyone unfamiliar with Tether, the sci-fi adventure promises to tell the story of a mother trapped aboard a space station while on a mission to prevent environmental collapse. While the premise raises echoes of the ‘walking simulator’ format, the game was quite ambitious, featuring time manipulation mechanics, a reactive AI enemy similar to Alien: Isolation‘s xenomorph, and immersive sim elements. How much of that will be retained in the new version remains to be seen.

OnlySP’s Amy Davidson has already pledged to trial the demo as a future entry in the Friday Freebies Club, which this week will examine \SPEK.TAKL\, so watch out for that.
