Dementium III

Dementium IIIA few days ago, Jools Watsham from Renegade Kid asked fans on Twitter if they would support a Kickstarter campaign for a new Dementium game. In a blog post, the creator explains why he did that, and how many RT they need for a Kickstarter campaign to be launched: 3 000 would be the ideal number.

There’s also a deadline for the RT: Sunday, February 14th at:

  • Europe: 6AM
  • UK: 5AM
  • North America (ET): 12AM
  • North America (PT): 9PM (February 13th)
  • Japan: 2PM

Dreii

Dreii is a unique puzzle game coming this year to the Nintendo eShop of the Wii U. As shown in the trailer below, the game can be played in co-op. What’s more, the game has crossplay with the PS Vita version of the game (which comes out next week), allowing Wii U and PS Vita owner to play together online.

Here’s the trailer for Dreii:

Anima: Gate of Memory

Anima: Gates of Memory is a third-person RPG that went through Kickstarter, and is supposed to come out on Wii U. Unfortunately, the developers didn’t have good news for the Wii U version in their latest Kickstarter update. Here’s what they said about it:

Anima Gate of Memories will be released simultaneously in Windows, Xbox One and PS4 and we are working to be able to release a few months later a WiiU version (which, even if we are still not sure, we hope that will be possible). Right now we are trying to discover if we can provide a console key. Give us a few more weeks to see if it can be done.

FreezeMe

It sounds like a funny joke, but it certain isn’t: FreezeMe has a rather odd glitch that makes it freeze and crash under certain conditions. Good news: the developers are not only aware of it, but they’re already working on a patch which is coming out soon!
