The perfect entry point to the game, “Forging Nightmares” gives a background on the key characters and creatures from the Othercide universe: the Mother, her Daughters, and the terrifying Others that you will face off against. Also discussed is the art style that sets Othercide apart and gives a unique look and feel, and the real-world inspirations for the characters and situations of this disturbing reality. Influences are pulled from Japanese and western sources, as well as the real life of art director Alexandre Chaudret.

A second webseries episode will arrive in the near future as we approach launch, covering decisions made on gameplay and specific game mechanics.

And here’s some more details about the game, along with the list of key features:

As Humanity’s last hope, lead your army of Daughters to combat in an intricate dance of spectacular actions using the Dynamic Timeline System to defeat fearsome bosses in epic battles.

Truck & Logistics Simulator

Here’s some details, the list of key features, and some screenshots (+ boxart) for Truck & Logistics Simulator, releasing on June 25th in Europe and North America (price: 39.95€ / £36.99 / $39.99):

Truck & Logistics Simulator is the first logistics game that realistically simulates everything from the loading ramp to the recipient with over 20 different transport and loading vehicles.

In Truck & Logistics Simulator, developed by Simula Games, the players get to fulfill the hands-off tasks of a logistics company: loading cargo trucks with a vast array of loading vehicles, from simple forklifts to wheel loaders; driving big and small transport vehicles to their destination on a realistic map and safely unloading the cargo again. More than 20 vehicle types are available for loading and transporting. In addition to particularly challenging missions with fragile cargo, players can also expect jobs that must be completed in the shortest possible time. The goods are finally transported to the recipient, either alone or in a convoy with other players in multiplayer mode (cross-platform) – all of this in compliance with traffic regulations. If they ignore red lights and speed limits or deliver damaged goods, players can expect fewer experience points and a smaller mission reward.

Truck & Logistics Simulator was in development since 2014 and offers players a large open world map (24 km²) with varied areas such as ports, highways and urban areas, but also off-road routes. A day and night cycle as well as changing weather conditions including snow, fog and rain affect the driving characteristics of the different transport vehicles and present players with further challenges.

  • More than 20 drivable vehicles with realistic interior and driving physics
  • Cross-platform (Nintendo Switch and PC) multiplayer with cooperative game mechanics: Players form convoys and deliver the goods with friends
  • The transport vehicle fleet includes everything from passenger cars to minivans, platform trucks, lorries and heavy-duty transporters
  • There are various trailers such as box trailers, concrete pumps, low loaders, container trailers and more for the transport vehicles
  • Transport of heavy vehicles on trailers (cars, forklifts, wheel loaders, off-road vehicles)
  • Day and night cycle and realistic weather: Players have to be prepared for difficult weather conditions such as rain and fog and have to drive carefully
  • Accidents can cause the axles to bend, which realistically affects the vehicle physics
  • Thousands of missions, including challenging and dangerous off-road tours
  • Vehicle modding: colour, window tinting, colour of the dashboard, xenon headlights and many more
  • 24 km² large open road world with a port, highways, urban and industry areas and more
  • Female and male game characters selectable

Truck & Logistics Simulator (Switch) comes out on June 25th in Europe and North America.
