Hindsight 20/20 | ‘Teaser Trailer’
“Hindsight 20/20, the single-player action-adventure game with morality-based decisions from BioWare, ArenaNet, and Sucker Punch veterans at Triple-I Games, releases on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Mac in 2020.
The peaceful town of Champaner holds life sacred above all else. A calamitous virus capable of turning people into blood-thirsty beasts called Raakshasas threatens Champaner’s harmonious ways. In response, King Marcos orders the kidnapping and execution of all Raakshasas including Seth, the leader of the beasts. Seth flees and forms a rival town called Gibsonia, a safe haven for anyone who has or could turn into a Raakshasa. He then opens a powerful rift over Champaner, capable of destroying the kingdom at any time.
At the center of this developing war is a fated one-armed man named Jehan who lived in Champaner, until his father was killed. Jehan’s malleability and freedom of choice form the crux of Hindsight 20/20. Will he uphold the values of his hometown by avoiding bloodshed? Or will the murder of his father fuel him with a rage that can only be quelled with the death of those responsible? Perhaps there is a middle ground, where violence justifies a peaceful end. Survive in a world of grey by deciding who Jehan really is and what motivates him.”

Project Winter | ‘1.0 Launch Trailer’
“Grab a handful of your closest comrades and get ready to betray your friends when Project Winter launches on Windows on May 23rd!
When a cadre of eight are dropped in the frigid wilderness with nothing but the clothes on their backs and a log cabin to protect them from the elements, teamwork is essential to surviving the dropping temperatures and blood-thirsty wildlife. But what happens when slowly, but surely, it’s evident that not everyone in the group is out to prove that there is no “I” in team? Project Winter is an 8-person multiplayer game focused on social deception and survival where players are randomly assigned to the role of Traitor or Survivor. Players must gather resources, repair structures, and brave the wilderness together – but beware of traitors within the group who will be steadily gaining strength as the match progresses and whose only goal is to stop the survivors by any means necessary. Communication and teamwork are essential to the survivors’ ultimate goal of escape.
Since launching in Early Access at the beginning of February of this year, Project Winter has snowballed into a title worthy of the praise being offered from streamers and fans alike! Early Access was only the beginning for the developers at Other Ocean, who have implemented major upgrades and improvements to every area of the game over the last 3 months. These updates include a “Mass Hysteria” event which adds a further level of deception that makes it hard to tell friend from foe (as if it wasn’t hard enough!), Truth Serum to aid the survivors in rooting out their saboteurs, and more AI improvements than you can shake a pickaxe at!”

Konrad the Kitten | ‘Update 2.0’
“Konrad is all grown up: the virtual kitten for PlayStation VR, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and Windows Mixed Reality has developed into a bright-eyed cat. Of course, he is still playful and looking for player’s attention, but Konrad isn’t alone anymore. Someone dropped a basket filled with little orphaned kittens overnight and Konrad immediately took care of the cute little fur balls .
So far Konrad has been strictly a day-active house tiger, but these days are over now. The lively new arrivals demand his full attention at night. After sunset, the door to the new kitten’s room opens where they impatiently wait for him to explore the new world.
Players control Konrad, who then takes care of the little ones. Each of the nine kittens has its own head and needs. The adventurous among them want to let off some steam, while others are always hungry and need to be fed. And if a kitten gets lost, it is Konrad’s job to find it and bring it home safely. After an exciting and exhausting night, the kittens sleep through the day and dream of Konrad’s next visit.
The new kittens are simply too cute, but Konrad is also looking to experience his own adventures. With the new update, players can now explore a brand-new world with him. In addition to the previous five worlds (living room, bathroom, kitchen, Sunny Beach and forest), the Snowy Valley has opened its gates. For the first time Konrad sees snow here – and he is thrilled! Undaunted, he jumps on a snowboard or has action-packed snowball fights with moles. And as a little snack in between, he snatches the snowman’s carrot nose.
In addition to both the new kittens and the Snowy Valley, developer FusionPlay has implemented many other innovations and improvements with this update. Among other things, Konrad appears even more alive as he now looks at players directly or winks at them. In addition, a lot of gameplay elements have been optimized, players now have more influence on the wheel of fortune, and a new quick-start mode lets players get into the game faster.”
