Animal Farm is a satirical book from George Orwell that draws many parallels to society and its governments by focusing on the threat of a political dystopia on an animal farm, and the developer behind the well-received Reigns card game series is working in partnership with The Dairymen in order to bring a new game based on the book to mobile and PC. This game is appropriately called Orwell's Animal Farm, and it's being developed with the full endorsement of the Orwell estate in preparation for an official launch this fall.
If you're still debating the best way to play Cyberpunk 2077, maybe early access will help sway your decision. Stadia customers will be able to play today at 7PM ET (4PM PT) rather than midnight local time — that's hours before console players will have access to the game here in the US.
Welcome to Wednesday, everyone. Today's list is on the smaller side, but I also have some quality standouts to share with everyone. First up is Star Wars: KOTOR, which is currently on sale thanks to the recent announcement that the sequel is coming to Android later this month. Next up is Old Man's Journey, a gorgeous adventure game that also offers a worthwhile story. Last but not least is 9th Dawn III RPG, the most recent release in the RPG series that's easily the best in the group. As always, I've highlighted all of the interesting titles in bold green text in order to make discovery easier.
The Drawn to Life platforming series started out on the Nintendo DS back in 2007, and in the following years saw the release of a spin-off and a sequel. The property was eventually sold to 505 Games, the same company that just announced that it's bringing a new title in the Drawn to Life series to Android, iOS, Steam, and the Nintendo Switch on December 7th. This long-awaited follow-up is called Drawn to Life: Two Realms, and it's a direct sequel that picks up where the last title left off.
Welcome to Monday, everyone. Now that we're well on our way to Christmas, the majority of Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales are over, but luckily there are still a few developers out there willing to list their apps and games at a discount. First up is Square Enix's SaGa: Scarlet Grace: Ambitions, a solid RPG remaster that's typically $30. Next, we have Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition, a classic CRPG easily worth the asking price when listed for half off. Last up is the entire WitchSpring RPG series, an enjoyable long-running mobile RPG that's well-reviewed for a reason.
Welcome to the roundup of the new Android games that went live in the Play Store or were spotted by us in the previous week or so. Today's list is broken up into several segments, ranging from best, average, to mediocre. So whether you're looking for the best games of quality or are simply looking for the latest free-to-play gacha titles, you're covered. This week I have the arrival of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, though it's a shoddy port. I also have the arrival of Football Manager 2021 Touch as well as the official launch of Donut County on Android.
Welcome to Friday, everyone. It's the end of the week, so I have many app and game sales to share with everyone. Most notably, Titan Quest is currently available at a drastic discount, but you also grab Tallowmere at half off, though if you prefer something that isn't an RPG, then perhaps the sale on ChessFinity PREMIUM will pique your interest. As always, I've highlighted all of the interesting titles in bold green text in order to make discovery easier. So without further ado, here are 32 temporarily free and 29 on-sale apps and games for the end of the week.
Stadia doesn't have a ton of original content, but Google's working to correct that, however slowly. Case in point: Outcasters, a new exclusive developed by Splash Damage, whose credits include contributions to high-profile series like Halo, Gears of War, and the Batman: Arkham games. It's nothing like you'd expect in light of Splash Damage's pedigree, but it is a fun little morsel, and it's free for Stadia Pro subscribers starting today.
OnePlus is in the process of updating its apps to fit its new Oxygen OS 11 theme better. The company no longer tries to stick as close to the stock or Pixel look as possible, but instead wants to develop its own design to stand out from the crowd. It settled for a Samsung-like focus on reachability with big titles and options to get content as close to your thumbs as possible. The OnePlus Game Space is the next app to receive this makeover, complete with a new icon and a new name: OnePlus Games.
Back in October (2020), NetEase caught everyone by surprise by announcing that it would bring ArtPlay's indie Metroidvania title Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night to Android and iOS. In the following week, the game landed on the Play Store for pre-registration, with an iOS listing hinting at a December 4th release. Well, it would appear the game has arrived a little early, which means you can already grab Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night from the Play Store for $9.99. Of course, I've taken the game for a spin to offer my thoughts, which you can read in full after the break.
