Here’s a trailer and some footage, some details, and some screenshots:

With over 600 rooms to explore across its huge interconnected world map, Cathedral presents an 8-bit audiovisual feast that has been created with contemporary metroidvania game design principles. Cathedral’s expansive map is completely hand-crafted in meticulous pixel art detail, filled to the brim with all sorts of locations, secrets, puzzles, items and special challenges. Using the handy map feature is a must for gamers wanting to uncover every mystery this game holds. Prepare for a rollicking, noble adventure that will challenge and entertain for hours!

In Cathedral, players wake up in a world with no recollection of how they got there. Control a nameless knight from a different world, who teams up with a spirit known as Soul. Explore the world together to figure out who you are, how you got there, and most importantly, how to get back home. Unravel the secrets of the knight’s past by finding five legendary elemental orbs. The orbs, placed in ancient times by the demi-god known only as Ardur, are protected by five fearsome guardians. Make your way through their dungeons, meet them head-on in combat, and see if you can defeat and claim the treasure they are guarding! In classic metroidvania fashion, on your journey you’ll find a host of items that allow you to explore the world even further, reaching new areas, secrets and surprises!

King of Seas

3DClouds have announced that they have signed a deal with Team17, who will publish King of Seas. Its release is now slated for May 2021. The developers are going to use the extra development time to further improve the game, but also implement additional languages: German, French, Spanish, and both Simplified and Traditional Chinese.

Here’s a trailer, some details and the list of key features:

King of Seas is an action role-playing game set in a deadly procedurally generated pirate world. In a ferocious plot, you will fight to regain what has been taken away and embark on an epic adventure in a fantastic world, filled with battles, lost islands and treasures. A universe full of amazing characters and breathtaking missions will keep you anchored as you strive to become the king of all pirates.

  • Story: A series of quests guide you on your journey and uncover the intriguing characters of the King of Seas world who will lead you to the next path of your epic adventure.
  • Procedural Generation: Dive into a lush, procedurally generated world that constantly refreshes the exploration mechanics within each new game.
  • Dynamic World: The world reacts to your every action, naval routes change and with each conquered settlement the difficulty adapts to constantly give you a more challenging time.
  • Map: A thick fog will ensure travelling towards objectives is not plain sailing, after all wouldn’t you want to lose the joy of exploration !?
  • Navigation system: Atmospheric effects influence gameplay. Sail during a storm at your own risk, escape the enemies and always remember to carefully watch the wind direction to stay in control during battles. The strategy starts here.
  • Ship customization: Five types of highly customizable ships through an equipment and skill system, just as in any true role-playing game!
  • Combat system: Not only cannon shots and nautical strategy but also speed and spectacle, thanks to a set of more than 20 skills to choose from and three branches of talents to suit any playstyle.

3 out of 10

Terrible Posture Games have announced a game for the Nintendo Switch: 3 out of 10, a playable sitcome about video game development. It will be released on March 3rd in Europe and North America, and will cost $9.99.

Here’s a trailer, some details, and some screenshots for the game:

Now, on consoles, experience the entire five-episode season in one package. Dive deeper with a bevy of brand-new special features including the surprise-filled Open Explore Mode, actor profiles, the official soundtrack, a concept art gallery, Big Head Mode, and director commentary.

Game animator Midge Potter shows up for a job interview at Shovelworks Studios, a beleaguered bunch of game dev ne’er-do-wells who have yet to earn a review score higher than 3 out of 10

Before she can ask, “What’s your work-from-home policy,” Midge finds herself fending off shark-obsessed protestors, shuttling sacrificial interns back to the campus halls from whence they came, and stocking up on foam bullets for an office-wide battle royale. Small wonder the Shovelworks team can’t seem to finish their game. How are you supposed to get any work done with sentient mannequins and a flamethrower-obsessed character artist wreaking daily havoc?

Equal parts video game and animated show, 3 out of 10 tackles the ridiculous business of making games with irreverent reverence. Follow a cast of zany, larger-than-life developers while each episode pays homage to gaming history with clever mini-games. Brave a game dev university, the secret tunnels to Canada, and more with cover-based shooting, side-scrolling brawls, first-person sneaking, brain-teasing puzzles, pinball, and loads of other game styles both fresh and nostalgic.
