Winter Voices First Episode Released
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 4 comments

BeyondthePillars has announced the release of Avalanche, the first episode of Winter Voices. The introductory prologue to the seven episode RPG provides between 4 and 5 hours of play and chronicles the saga of a young heroine who, after the death of her father, must follow the mysterious voices of her unconscious mind to find the answers she seeks.

“Winter Voices” is an entertaining and pioneering game whose main female character is at grips with the phantoms of her past. The team’s editorial and creative angle is to enable the player, through the provision of regular episodes, to follow the heroine’s physical and mental journey in an adventure that is riveting to the end.

First Episode Summary: Avalanche
A small village buried in snow, lost in the northern regions of the Kingdom of the Three-River Principality. A sudden death, a hostile home, new sensory capacities rising like a storm, and the departure towards the unknown. Escape is the only way out, besides death itself... The orphan heroine is forced to leave her father's village by the voices of her unconscious. Through a long journey in search for answers in her past and present, she will have to overcome anger, sadness, pain and fear, and discover eventually what the Voices of Winter have to say to her.
It's your turn to live the experience.
Avalanche is available for 4.49€. For more information follow the links below.

Apple Games Features Battlestations Pacific
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Apple Games has posted a new feature article focusing on the recently released Battlestations: Pacific. The sequel to Battlestations: Midway features 14 missions for each campaign, over 100 different types of war machines to control, improved graphics, and enhanced multiplayer modes. Apple's article includes an overview of the game and a description of the multiplayer modes available.

“Never give an order that can’t be obeyed,” General MacArthur also said. Keep that in mind as you play through both campaigns, where you’ll have access to dozens of authentic planes, ships, and submarines as you juggle controlling a particular craft and overseeing big-picture battle strategy. Set formations, order your units to behave offensively or defensively, and set patrol routes. During combat, you can switch between units, allowing you to, for example, maneuver a fleet into position before hopping into the cockpit of a plane and taking off from an aircraft carrier.

If you find yourself shot down or sunk, don’t worry: simply take control of another available unit and join the fray once more. Each mission presents a series of objectives for you to achieve, such as eliminating a certain number of enemy units or ensuring that your comrades in arms reach a specific destination. Complete all objectives to earn gold medals and unlock new units that can be used in future missions; complete the secondary and hidden objectives to earn naval supplies that confer bonuses, such as improved unit effectiveness or the ability to summon air strikes.
