Kaigan Games has just announced the latest installment in their highly-acclaimed digital dread simulators. Simulacra 3 expands on the creepy universes built by the first two chapters of the horror series and adds real-time elements and a fresh story for fans and newcomers alike.
The Signal State combines several geeky topics: Reckoner Industries from Singapore – with publisher The Iterative Collective – created a puzzle and simulation game inspired by modular synthesizers. If you’ve ever listened to artists of electronic synth music like Rival Consoles or watched a video of Red Means Recording, you might have stumbled upon these technical miracle boxes in music.
Project Xandata is a 3v3 first-person team shooter by Philippine studio Secret 6, focusing on fast gameplay and customization options. Visually, the shooter is reminiscent of Blizzard’s Overwatch, but in essence, it should play more like a classic skill shooter despite offering special skills and different classes.
Project Buramato is the working title for a new game by the Indonesian studio Ozysoft, previously known for the horror game Pulang Insanity. However, this time, it’s a 3D action adventure platformer in high fantasy settings inspired by traditional Bornean folktales.
Anyone who sets out to draw attention to themselves in the wide world of first-person horror games needs a clear, unique selling point. For the Singaporean solo developer KOEX, this is the eponymous Noosphere. A relatively little-known philosophical concept about another realm, just like a biosphere, which feeds on logical thinking and consciousness. An unusual approach, but one that the game can only partially do justice to.
