Monochroma's cinematic trailer gets dystopian with an evil corporation


4:45 PM on 04.28.2014



This new trailer for Nowhere Studios' Monochroma presents an interesting juxtaposition between how the corporation in the game sees itself, and the effect that it has on society. Everything's peachy, upbeat, and thriving until it's not anymore.

Then, it gets depressing. The art style shifts, and the music intensifies. You know things are bad because there are crying children. Why on earth would those kids cry unless something bad's happ--oh yep, they're getting locked up in the back of a truck. Well, add that to the list of mysteries that the protagonist brothers need to solve. 

At least the mystery solving is imminent. Nowhere Studios still hasn't mentioned an official release date, but it's aiming for the latter half of May. Then, we can get into the shadows and figure out what this 1950's world is all about.

Monochroma will remind you of Limbo, and that's an amazing thing

With all the cool tech demos and innovative ideas on display at GDC Play, it's a bit surprising that a 2D side-scrolling puzzle platformer is one of the most worthwhile things to check out. But hey, good games are good games,...more

Review: Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal

While Sonic Boom on the Wii U has its issues, there are also some redeeming qualities. Co-op is enjoyable, the platforming is pretty fun, and the 2D sections aren't bad. With a few more months in the oven and more polish, it could have ultimately been a decent Sonic title. Unfortunately, the same can't be said for the 3DS version of Sonic Boom. There's almost nothing redeeming about it.more
