Lost Castle gameplay is a real rougelikeRougelike games are becoming very popular. They provide you with an interesting type of challenge and Lost Castle gameplay is not different at all in this aspect. Each time you die you start your adventure from the very beginning. However, each death is an additional experience for you. Something you're going to need in order to be able to go even deeper into the castle of Harwood. Each time you start over the castle changes. Dungeons, enemies, bosses and items are all randomly generated. Hence, you can't simply remember the layout of the castle in order to be able to avoid all types of danger. The only thing that is going to matter is your skill. Well, and maybe a little bit of luck with proper items and events. The Lost Castle is a demanding game but at the same time it is fair. Each failure is the result of your mistakes and it is a lesson for you. Remember about that before you're going to enter the Castle of Harwood.A huge amount of items and equipment for youLost Castle provides your young hero with an enormous variety of items and equipment. There are more than 150 different weapons and 50 sets of armor. Furthermore there are more than 80 different items and 50 potions. The last ones are especially interesting. There are normal potions which are going to restore your health. Other might provide you with interesting buffs like turning you into a giant. Some of them though, can have hilarious effects. For example there is a potion which summons one, tiny ghost. The ghost is going to sap your money. A little thief and devil so to speak. Hence, you have to be careful. Each potion can be a potential buff for you or a debuff.An epic four player local co-opIn modern gaming, local multiplayer was somehow forgotten. Which is unfortunate judging by the fact that we love local multiplayer. Luckily, in the Lost Castle you will be able to play in a local co-op of up to four players at the same time. Just plug-in your pad or joystick and play with your friends. After all it is going to be much easier to stand against the enemies together with your friends. Then what are you waiting for? Put your team together and go on the real adventure.
We Happy Few is a fairy tale which quickly turns into a horrorHello my friend, in We Happy Few gameplay you are going to take control over typical Joe's. You are a citizen of Wellington Wells. A dystopian city, where everyone is happy. There is no sadness, harm, suffering, or pain. How is it possible, you might ask? Each citizen is obligated to take a regular dose of "Joy". Joy is a pill that the residents of Wellington Wells voluntarily consume to keep them happy and sedated. The effect of this drug is not only happiness but also memory loss and hallucinations. One day, your characters forget to take their joy and immediately are haunted by terrible things they’ve done in the past, and they each have something they urgently need to accomplish. Now, you will have to stand against not only the government of Wellington Wells, but also against citizens who are so much in denial that they are going to kill anyone who might harm their "happy" World.Set in 1960s EnglandSet in a retrofuturistic 1960s, you will find a city ravaged by war and rebuilt by delusionally happy people. Everything looks so happy in Wellington Wells, starting from people, through animals up to the figure of Uncle Jack himself. Only the government knows that the city is about to collapse.We Happy Few offers you a highly replayable gameplayWe Happy Few has a rouge-like gameplay. In other words, if you die in “We Happy Few”, that’s it – there is no reloading your save. Just like in the harsh reality, death is a game over. However, it is what makes the game special. Each death is a lesson, each new game is a completely new story. Remember that each time you die, you’ll restart in a brand new city, thus it is never going to be the same. You will be engaged for many hours with this game, slowly learning how to survive in the Wellington Wells.A mature storyThe playable characters are not heroes. Each one of them has flaws. They are not heroic at all and they are destroyed by ghosts of their own past. Each one of them has a dark past, which was covered and forgotten because of Joy. While trying to survive in Wellington Wells you will quickly learn, that the scariest thing here is not the city itself but your own past. Don't worry though. The story is also filled with dark humor, hope and most importantly, a chance for redemption.Create your own storyIn We Happy Few, it is up to you how you are going to play. The game is a sandbox, so nothing is going to stop you (except government and crazy citizens) from going to any place you wish. There are many small and big decision which you can make during the gameplay, starting from such as "take your Joy or throw it away), to much harder ones. Craft your own World and story and slowly stand against the false society which held you as a prisoner for so long.
Director Jacob Estes's feature film debut is a remarkably accomplished coming of age drama about death and consequences. When overweight, emotionally troubled George (Josh Peck) beats up a smaller kid named Sam (Rory Culkin) one time too many, his older brother Rocky (Trevor Morgan) and Rocky's wrong-side-of-the-tracks pal (Scott Mechlowicz) decide to teach George a lesson. Along with their friend, Clyde (Ryan Kelley), who was once the brunt of George's violence himself, they bring George on a boat trip with a cruel prank in mind. Sam brings his love interest, Milly (Carly Schroeder), who tries to stop the plan when she decides George is a nice guy after all. Tragic things happen nonetheless with the slow, languid rhythm of life in a small Oregon town. Along the way, Estes manages to capture many fine moments of poetic realism like the stillness of the forest around the river, the swirling eddies along the shore, a snail crawling along a leaf, and a drowning video camera. Cinematographer Sharone Meir uses colour filters and washed-out film stock to make everything glow with faded colours like old family photographs. The dialogue feels natural and the acting is precise; Estes obviously loves his cast and allows plenty of time and space for their characters to breathe, think, and be the confused kids they're meant to be.
