Tetris Effect Coming to PC Next Week as Epic Store Exclusive

No word on if it's a timed exclusive.

The game that many called 2018's game of the year is coming very soon to the PC. That's right, Tetris Effect brings its psychedelic strategy-puzzle gameplay to a PC somewhat near you on July 23. Ah, but there is a catch, because of course there is.

In case you missed it, Tetris Effect is exclusive to the Epic Games Store. There is no saying whether or not this is a timed exclusive release, or if this third-party PC release will remain an exclusive to that launcher. This release will mark the first time that the game was available...
 

Horror Game Devotion May Not be Re-released

Developer says this may change, but not any time soon.

This past February, Taiwan-based Red Candle Games pulled their then newly released horror title, Devotion, from the Steam store. This came after it was discovered that the game had shipped with an Easter egg that references how China's president, Xi Jinping, looks like Winnie the Pooh. What followed was a wave of review bombing on Steam from upset Chinese citizens that continued to toe the line that the government has repeatedly pushed upon them.

The original plan from Red Candle Games was to remove the game from...
 

Introducing Steam Labs - A Place to Test New Steam Features

Launching today with three experiments.

Valve has just launched a new area on Steam where users can test out new, experimental features for Steam. They're calling this area the Steam Labs and it is here where users will be able to test out potential new Steam features. These tests may one day become commonplace on Steam, but for now they are mere experiments ripe for testing and potential changes based on user feedback.

If you ever used Gmail, you may already know what to expect from these Labs experiments. That is to say, there is no guarantee that they will be fully...

Facebook Reportedly Bringing Splinter Cell Back... as a VR Game

Who wished on a monkey's paw?!

There is a story circulating today saying that Facebook may have already signed deals with Ubisoft to bring back Splinter Cell and a new Assassin's Creed title. That's not the weird part. The weird part here is that the deal is to create VR games in these two popular franchises. And since it's Facebook that pushed the deal, that would mean that the games would be Oculus "exclusive" and sold through their Oculus Store.

This is, at least right now, merely a rumor. It came to light today via The Information (full article is locked...

  • Goat Simulator is Real and is Really Coming to Steam

    Goat Simulator is Real and is Really Coming to Steam

    The world demanded it (for some reason) and Coffee Stain Studios is going to deliver. Goat Simulator is a real game and it's really coming to Steam and you will really have to pay money to experience it. Really.


    The game was never meant to be released to the public. It was merely the creation from a recent game jam but holy crap the world went nuts after seeing footage for the game. I mean, I guess they did. That's what people are telling me even though I never heard about this game until now.

    It's slated for release in Spring 2014. You can pre-order it now from the Goat Simulator...

  • Facepunch Banned Over 4,500 Suspected Cheaters Today from Official Rust Servers

    Rust, the latest game in development from Garry and the crew at Facepunch, has not exactly been free of hackers and cheaters. He and his team are looking to change that with today's reveal that 4,573 users (and counting) have been banned from official Rust servers today.

  • New Dying Light Trailer - Humanity

    New Dying Light Trailer - Humanity

    A new trailer for Techland's Dying Light was released today. It asks you just one simple question, "What would you do?"

    Dying Light's "Humanity" trailer presents a serious look at what a zombie epidemic would mean for humankind. It makes you wonder what consequences the world where neighbors kill neighbors and relatives kill relatives would have on human mind. How long could you justify what you do? How strong is the instinct of self-preservation? Is there still a place for kindness in such a cruel world?
    Dying Light is a first-person survival horror game set in an open-world environment. It's slate...

    Adam "Deal With It" Orth is Making His Own Game

    Adam Orth, the former Creative Director at Microsoft is now working on his own game. Orth, whom you may recall was last seen running his mouth off on Twitter about how gamers should "deal with it" (it being the always-on Xbox One) was fired following his very public attack on the gaming community.

    You know, this guy.


    Well, he's still trying to ride on his long expired 15 minutes of fame and is now promoting his new game. The game is called >Adr1ft. No, those are not typos. Kotaku has the exclusive first report on the game.
