The Final Station
Rarely do train simulators and zombie shooters come together to create a cohesive product, but developers Tiny Build sought to make that dream come true. The resulting pixel pandemic hit PS Store yesterday, and is rapidly making its way round the indie circuit. Delays and cancellations aren’t the only nightmares on this job, keep your passengers safe from hordes of infested while you diligently deliver them to their final destination.
Fresh on the platformer scene is Hue, a colour spectacle that follows in the footsteps of Q.U.B.E. Progressing through levels requires the player to change the background colour of an otherwise monochrome world in order to see hidden elements and features. Following the story of a separated boy and mother, Hue provides a solid singular-concept indie experience. Speaking of, we actually caught up with one of the developers on the project a few months ago, which you can check out here.
Everyone’s talking about Verdun today. Its release yesterday on PS4 was well shadowed by its previous uptake on PC earlier in the year. However critics are praising the port with just as much enthusiasm as its quieter Windows release. Verdun takes players into a first person experience of WW1 trenches, a mechanic and historical backdrop that are certainly tricky to master. Nevertheless with inspiration drawing from the 1916 Battle of Verdun, this multiplayer squad based shooter is being hailed for its tactical performance. It looks like Verdun might be a good placeholder until Battlefield 1 comes along, though its unfortunate release scheduling means its been lost in the Battlefield beta rush.
