Pak Watch: February 2017

I collect games for Pak watch at a rate far greater than I post things for said column. This is my endless challenge of this blog. Not Pak Watch, specifically, but posting things at any kind of a rate. That said, have a look at these upcoming games:

State Machine
estimated release: 2017

Terry Cavanagh of VVVVVV and Super Hexagon fame, is making an RPG! The graphics are distinctly Cavanagh, and I am thrilled. I don't know if I'll ever find the time to play said game, but I'm just happy to know he's developing it, as I love his games.

(note: I misspelled Cavanagh way back at the beginning of our blog, and have thus been misspelling it every since. I think I've fixed these instances. Apologies to Mr. Cavanagh)

Hell is other Demons
Steam Greenlight
estimated release: Q1 2017

Speaking of Cavanagh: SoulEye, the composer from VVVVVV is composing for this new game. This is a bullet hell shooter with low resolution and few colors. I think it looks pretty sweet! I'll give the soundtrack a listen at the very least.

Death Trash
estimated release: 2017 (or later)

"A Grimier, Scarier, Nastier Fallout" - Rock Paper Shotgun. Music to my ears! This game certainly looks gross and imaginative. You may remember that I shared an image from this game some years ago, however, at the time I wasn't sure it was a game and not just an image. Now we know: It is a game! Should be fun.

This was a fun bunch of games to bring to you. I should do this more often ;)

  1. Awesome! I'm glad to see that Death Trash is (going to be) a real game and not just concept art. And Hell is Other Demons really reminds me, gameplay-wise of Super Crate Box with a specific visual aesthetic. State Machine is kind of hard to tell from the still images, but I did enjoy the feel of VVVVVV, so there is that too.
