August 20, 2016 Game News Update – Gamescom, Intel’s VR Headset, An RPG Un-Cancelled

So, this was quite the week for game news- this week, Gamescom kicked off, and with it came a ton of announcements for a bunch of great games- we have news about changes coming to Overwatch, the next DotA 2 heroes, Star Wars Battlefront and Microsoft’s plans for PC gaming. We also have news about Project Alloy, Intel’s upcoming virtual reality headset that could provide some real competition for the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, as well as news about Infinity, a Gameboy Color RPG that was previously cancelled but is now playable- check all this out and more on this week’s episode of Game News Update.

If you’re wondering about Infinity, you can find out more about the game from the official website of its developer, Affinix; the short of the story is that long ago, a Gameboy Color RPG was in development- it was going along well enough but sort of slowly- the developers couldn’t find a publisher, and enough time passed that the Gameboy Color wasn’t relevant anymore- everybody moved on to the Gameboy Advance. So, after fifteen years, the developers have made their incomplete game available to download for free- they have expressed some interest in finishing it- if you’d like to try your hand at developing Infinity, you can also download the game’s source code, which the developers have made available to download.

Did you come in search of free stuff? Well, you came to the right place; right now, Rayman Origins is being given away by Ubisoft- the one catch is that you have to use a uPlay account but hey, free Rayman! You can get it from the Ubisoft Club here.
If you’re curious about the week’s crowdfunding project, you’ve come to the right place; this week, we showed off Vulpine, a survival sandbox about animals with weapons- well, the game’s about a whole lot more than that, but for the sake of simplicity? It’s animals with weapons- check out the game’s Kickstarter trailer below for details.
