The Bridge, This Critically Acclaimed Indie Puzzler Is Coming To Current Gen Consoles Soon

The Bridge is a 2D logic puzzle game that forces the player to re-evaluate their preconceptions of physics and perspective. It is Isaac Newton meets M. C. Escher. Manipulate gravity to redefine the ceiling as the floor while venturing through impossible architectures. Explore increasingly difficult worlds, each uniquely detailed and designed to leave the player with a pronounced sense of intellectual accomplishment. The Bridge exemplifies games as an art form, with beautifully hand-drawn art in the style of a black-and-white lithograph.

The Bridge, a black-and-white indie puzzler in the style of M. C. Escher, will be available for Xbox One on August 14th, for PS3, PS4, PS Vita, and Ouya on August 18th, and for Wii U on August 20th.

Dark Storm: Ascension Is Aiming To Take Out The Top Dogs Of The Stealth Action Genre

A couple of months ago we shared the exciting news that Fenrir Studios is currently developing Dark Storm: Asecension, a stealth action game set in an open world scifi universe. There’s no denying that the team was heavily inspired by AAA franchises like Metal Gear & Deus Ex, however this indie underdog promises they’ll be delivering a title that’ll rival any of their stealth action competitors. Based on everything I’ve seen thus far, they’re preparing to choke the life out of the competition.

Where a lot of games within the genre feel as if they’ve simply wrapped a new story around the same gameplay mechanics, its clear that Fenrir Studios doesn’t have that luxury so they’re building it all from the ground up. However they’ve started with a phenomenal foundation, everything about Dark Storm is being built around an original and beautifully written story. There isn’t any question to me that it’s the story and the characters within in it that have shaped the game so far and will continue to do so through development, they’re creating an immersive experience that you won’t want to put down. And that’s the way it should be…

However in order for Fenrir Studios to achieve their vision and deliver the game that we all deserve, they need our support on Kickstarter to get it done right.

Still trying to figure out how this upcoming indie title could possibly have, the critically acclaimed industry veteran, Kojima shaking in his Solid Snake pj’s?
