During Gamescom 2016 we spoke with Jesús Fabre, publishing director for Games Starter, a Mexico-based company that publishes and incubates games made by independent developers, and previously PR for Aquiris Game Studio from Brazil. During our meeting we got to see a few upcoming projects we can expect in the future that we can’t keep from you.
Things seem to be more about presentation and who gets the first exclusive rights on trailers!? Today EA presented their new Mass Effect trailer at Sony’s event. And this made our team wonder. Even though …
At the Astragon entertainment stand on the Gamescom business area floor we got a chance to see a few upcoming games from developer Microids, known for designing adventure games. With the large selection of classic adventure titles under their name, they are a key player in keeping the genre alive in the modern age of gaming (next to Telltale Games). Microids adventure games typically stick to the classic foundation of point-and-click adventure games of the 90’s. I was given to opportunity to see and play two new games.
Bethesda was showing gameplay footage of some of their upcoming titles in their cinema, and we were present during the showing of the upcoming titles developed by Arkane Studios, Dishonored 2 and Prey.
Dishonored 2 takes place several years after the original, and follows two different characters, both whom are playable. One of these is Corvo from the original, the other is a Emily Kaldwin, the young daughter and heir to the empress of the Isles, who is now playable and as much of an awesome assassin as Corvo (who may be her father). The gameplay footage that was shown focused solely on her, and we got to see what playing as Emily will be like.
