Hi everyone! Today is the first day of EGX in Birmingham, and we’ve got lots of exciting games playable at the show! It will be the first time that Inmost and Eastward are playable in the UK, and your last chance to get hands on with Timespinner before the game launches on September 25th. There’s also brand new demo of Pathway to check out, and lots of goodies to grab – like these super swanky Wargroove pins!
Wargroove is also playable on Nintendo Switch over at the Nintendo stand, and Rodrigo & I will be showcasing Wargroove onstage on Friday afternoon and Sunday morning, so keep your eyes peeled on the Nintendo UK twitter channel!
See you there!
Wargroove, developed in-house by Chucklefish, is a turn-based strategy game for up to 4 players! Each player takes control of an army and its commander unit to wage war on their enemies! Wargroove is extremely easy to pickup, with accessibility at the forefront of its design, and very difficult to master, with deep gameplay mechanics that complement strategic play. Choose a Commander from the 4 warring factions – the Cherrystone Kingdom, Heavensong Empire, Felheim Legion and Floran Tribes and then strategically use your Commander’s unique ‘groove’ ability to sway the battle in your favour!
Eastward is an adventure game developed by Shanghai-based Pixpil with RPG elements, set in a beautifully detailed decaying world, where society is starting to collapse as the human population shrinks to an all-time low. As the world around falls to ruin, you play as a hardworking digger John, who must guide a mysterious girl named Sam through dangerous decaying cities, inhabited by strange monsters, and even stranger people! Inspired by 90s Japanese animation, the visual style of Eastward has been brought to life using a combination of a modern, innovative 3D lighting system and a rich retro-pixel artwork.
Inmost is an atmospheric, story-driven puzzle platformer, following three playable characters within one dark, interconnecting story. In an old abandoned castle, you’ll need to explore every nook and cranny, avoid detection, slice your way through enemies and spring deadly traps in order to escape the evil that lurks within… You can meet the developers of Inmost Andriy and Alexey from Hidden Layer Games at the show, so make sure to swing by the booth to say hi!
