If you make a trailer that combines a striking look and an unusual setting, you're sure to get my attention. This trailer for Betrayer, the debut game from Blackpowder Games, does just that. The studio was started by former Monolith developers, famous for F.E.A.R. and No One Lives Forever

You character has traveled to an English colony in which the world has been drained of all color and corrupted settlers and spectres roam the landscape. Just like The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, Betrayer's setting in history is an under-explored one; the colonization of North America gave rise to new myths and legends, not least the fate of the Roanoke Colony. Betrayer will be appearing on Steam Early Access later in August.

Betrayer is really confusing, but in a good way

I played Betrayer today, and I have no idea what it's about. Not because of any sort of inattentiveness on my part, but because the ex-Monolith developers don't want me to know what it's about. That's kind of the intrig...more

Ex-Monolith devs' Betrayer joins Steam Early Access

Betrayer caught our eye the other day. It's in development at Blackpowder Games, which is better known as the six-person team made up of former Monolith Productions devs. Perhaps just as importantly, it's the game with that s...more

The Evil Within isn't looking very evil so far

A behind-closed-doors play session for upcoming survival horror game The Evil Within wasn't as evil as I hoped it would be. I still have high hopes for the next game from Resident Evil vet Shinji Mikami and his new ...more

Yep, The Evil Within is going to be one super creepy game alright

Oh The Evil Within, how I can't wait for you to scare the every living daylights out of me. Shinji Mikami's past games were my first tastes of the survival horror genre, and I'm quite looking forward to see what he does with...more
