Sid Meier’s Civilization VI

Here’s the latest video for the Babylon Pack, the latest set of DLC for Sid Meier’s Civilization VI (from the New Frontier Pass), out on November 20th:


Crunching Koalas have shared some more details for Bonkies, along with the a fresh batch of screenshots (check out this post for the latest trailer):

Bonkies is a jolly party game about cooperation, space construction and the joys of colonising the solar system as a team of monkeys. Players will be tasked with raising all sorts of quirky constructions on distant planets, by stacking blocks so they fit a given outline. To do so, they will have to team up with other space faring animals and master the use of their trusty apequipment – a banana-fuelled jetpack and a powerful robo-arm.

On top of that, they’ll have to utilise the wackiest kinds of blocks (magnets, rockets and even nuclear fusion are no strangers for a well-trained apestronaut), and work in exotic and not-really-monkey-friendly places. Who said space construction was going to be easy?

Bonkies features both single and multiplayer campaigns with tons of hand-crafted levels that require cooperation, quick wits, agility, and coordination to solve in time. Players can choose characters from a varied cast of lovable monkeys (and some other, equally adorable creatures). The game offers a challenging experience, but is first and foremost a light-hearted and joyful take on construction builders and couch co-op games. 

Bonkies (Switch – eShop) comes out in Q1 2021 in Europe and North America.

Rover Mechanic Simulator

Pyramid Games have announced their latest game for the Nintendo Switch: Rover Mechanic Simulator.

No release date yet, but here’s a trailer and some details:

The core of the gameplay in Rover Mechanic Simulator revolves around maintenance and fixing Mars rovers, which are being used on the Red Planet by a research station crew. Players can do this by thoroughly analyzing the incoming requests, accurately determining the defects and using tools such as a 3D printer. After a tiring day of work on Mars research rovers, you can relax by playing hidden retro minigames.

Throughout the development, the team has delivered elements such as the Curiosity rover, Mars Helicopter Ingenuity and tens of additional tasks connected with their repairs, which significantly extended the play time.

As you are developing your skills, the game takes you from easy to increasingly complex repair projects. Starting with the legendary Sojourner rover, which landed on Mars in 1997 during the Pathfinder mission, through more complicated rovers such as MER Spirit and Opportunity, which in the game consist of 395 elements connected by over 800 screws, ending with the newest addition to the game: the mighty MSL Curiosity, which consists of over 437 parts (311 of which are interactive) connected by 1152 screws. Besides providing fun, the game is also a great source of information about the structure of those incredible machines. Players will be able to play with them during almost 30 missions available in the game.

What makes the title stand out is a high level of realism. Very detailed 3D graphics precisely depict the original vehicles that were used on the Red Planet. The game can be considered a sort of compendium of knowledge about equipment dedicated to research activities and exploring Mars.

Rover Mechanic Simulator (Switch – eShop) does not have a release date yet.
