Hey kids, downloadable games are kind of a big deal nowadays. This year alone has seen one of the best titles so far in Shadow Complex and it looks as if developers are really starting to put a bit of effort into these previously ignored titles. Including these two:
Developed by Lucasarts (Yeah that's right A BRAND NEW ORIGINAL FUCKING GAME FROM LUCASARTS!!!), players have to help Sofi through a dreamscape-type world unharmed by way of indirect platforming. Bizarrely, the gameplay looks to be a mix of Lemmings and Tetris. Yeah, I know that sounds a bit weird, but check out this video to understand what I mean...
Release date: Lucidity will drop on Xbox Live Arcade and PC (via Steam) on October 7.
Making its debut appearance at the Penny Arcade Expo in Seattle a few days ago, Shank is being developed by Vancouver-based Klei Entertainment. Here's pretty much all you need to know - guns, chainsaws, blood, stab, run, stab, dive, stab, awesome.
Release date: No official date or platforms have been announced for Shank but apparently the demo being played at the Expo was unleashed on a Xbox 360 controller. So that pretty much settles it I guess.
