Astrobase Command Kickstarter: Update the Crew, Number 2!

The AI Storyteller works behind the scenes to tie everything together into a compelling and dynamic storyline

Our second update was published on Kickstarter this morning, and it’s chock full of goodness.

Although there’s some information on the forum badges, and clarification on our DRM policy, the meat lies in the overview of our AI Storyteller. We want the game to offer something unique, allowing it to stand out from the crowd by crafting dynamic story lines whose outcomes are determined by the characters capabilities and their personality.

Players will certainly be able to build 3D starbases, explore exotic new worlds, and wage battles in space and on planetary surfaces, but our gem, the AI Storyteller that is like having a living, breathing Dungeon Master crafting a unique game experience for the player every time the game is played, offering endless replayability.

The Dark Sorcerer: Quantic Dreams E3 Demo (not suitable for younger audiences)

If you haven’t caught it yet, here’s Quantic Dreams’ demo of the Dark Sorcerer. It is a technology demonstration being used to test out some next generation capabilities for the PS 4. With any luck, games will look like this in real time in the (relatively) near future.

Even if you’re not into the technology of game development, it’s worth watching the video for the humour that has been profusely laced throughout its twelve fantasy-packed minutes.

Titanfall’s release trailer stirs the depths of epic science-fiction battles

The first glimpse at Titanfall’s trailer would almost seem a suitable substitute for an Avatar 2 trailer. Giant mechs, futuristic infantry bouncing around in three dimensions, and giant spaceships soaring above the battlefield. This is definitely worth watching a couple times.
