Estranged: The Departure

Alan Edwardes has announced a game for the Nintendo Switch: Estranged: The Departure, a first-person adventure game. It’s a stand-alone sequel to Estranged: Act I, originally an Half-Life ² mod.

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

Estranged: The Departure, a self contained story which can be enjoyed completely independently of the original mod, tells the tale of a lone fisherman whose ship is stranded on a mysterious island during a violent storm. Players will explore a rich, detailed landscape on their attempted escape back to the mainland, encountering puzzles, inscrutable island inhabitants and unraveling a decades-old mystery along the way. Estranged: The Departure expertly blends a rich first person narrative adventure with gripping action set-pieces and combat.

The game follows the story of a fisherman, stranded on a mysterious island during a violent storm. Little does he know his adventure has just begun, and the island is home to more than it first seems. Experience what the island has in store as you uncover the secretive Arque Corporation, burrowing ever deeper into their dangerous and haphazard operations.

  • Experience the unique first person adventure
  • Immerse yourself in the rich narrative and unique characters
  • Interact with items, computers and audio logs for environmental storytelling
  • Protect yourself with guns and melee weapons, with familiar shooter combat

Estranged: The Departure (Switch – eShop) comes out in Q4 2020 in Europe and North America.

Dustoff Z

Zordix have announced that Dustoff Z (developed by Invictus) will be released on October 15th in Europe and North America.

Here’s some more details and screenshot for the game:

The world as we know it is in ruins. Relentless hordes of the undead have reduced civilization to tiny pockets of survivors that are disappearing by the day. The world has one hope left – a brave and daring police helicopter pilot with a knack for machinery. Pilot helicopters salvaged together from small vehicles to retrofitted school buses and equip them with an arsenal of different zombie-destroying weapons including machine guns, rocket launchers, buzz saws, tesla coils and more.

But, saving the day can’t be done alone. Hire shooters to put those weapons to use, each with their own unique strengths and weaknesses, as you decimate the zombie population, rescue survivors, protect aid-providing convoys, and destroy high-value enemy targets. Use your chopper’s winch hook to haul in and collect supplies, place base defenses, haul the corpses of zombies back to your base for analysis and even use objects in the environment as weapons like battering rams as you deftly maneuver your helicopter through the decimated cityscapes overrun by the zombie hordes. 

Dustoff Z (Switch – eShop) comes out on October 15th in Europe and North America.
