Has anyone else given Children of Morta a try? I heard Jim Sterling rave about it, took a look and bought it. It's a beautiful pixel art Roguelite where you basically dungeon crawl to stop the corruption infesting the land. You have a choice of characters and as I understand as the plot progresses more open up. You can level up each character with their own skill tree and between runs upgrade stuff globally with gold you find while fighting. It's real time combat and the game is just lovely. I believe it's out on PC, PS4 and XBox with a Switch version coming next month.
Jeff Minter is developing Tempest 4000 for Atari, releasing for PC and consoles later this year. Being shown at Gamescom this month. http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2017-08-08-tempest-4000-is-real-jeff-minter-is-developing-it-and-atari-is-publishing-it
Hi everyone - I'm hoping to garner some opinions on a retro gaming idea, if you would be able to help... I've got a business opportunity focused on gaming (arcade & consoles only at the moment) and one idea I've had to make it a bit more interesting to current and potential gamers is to provide a service a bit like Graze, Pact Coffee, Abel & Cole, etc. The idea is that you can go online, select which consoles you own and subscribe to a service that posts you a different game every month. You can play it and then send it back or you can keep it for an extra fee. So, if you said you had an N64, you might get Diddy Kong Racing, Banjo Kazooie or Super Smash Brothers for your first 3 months. You could send a couple back and keep one, if you felt so inclined. We would never send out the same game twice and you could cancel with 30 days notice. My questions I'd like to get some opinions on are; - Would you like to get one or more games sent to you every month? - If so, would a cost of £7.99 per month, including return postage, put you off? - Have you heard of anyone else providing this service? If so, what's good and what's bad about what they do? - What would really put you off from signing up? - What would make you sign to the membership package immediately? - If there were other benefits to the subscription, such as small loyalty rewards or exclusive social events, would that be of interest? Thanks for taking the time to respond - I genuinely appreciate all the feedback, good or bad, and will respond to everyone! Mark
