What The Witcher series swept under the rug?

Assuming it’s not just a pipedream, The Witcher 4 will surely not come into existence anytime soon. But why not indulge in reminiscing about the unresolved plot threads from the original trilogy?

Brunwich and its relationship with Polish literature

We're launching a series of articles under the name Polish Witcher Trivia. Throughout the series we'll present Easter eggs and references that only Poles may notice. The first one is a small village called Brunwich and how it relates to Polish literature.

The Settlers found their heir?

92% of positive reviews on Steam is not a matter of coincidence. Northgard is a successful Early Access that should be a real treat for all fans of economic strategies.

Gamedev in the time of revolution

The recent Ukrainian Revolution and the events that followed it changed the entire country, and with it the video game industry. The Ukrainian devs told us about the burning streets, evacuations, and financial losses, but also of a new chance to grow.

He compared the system to a MOBA or an MMORPG, like World of Warcraft for instance, in which no one would ever reasonably hope to get all items for all characters. With the current prices of in-game cosmetic items it would take an ordinary player about 2.5 years to unlock them all. Alternatively, they could spend $732.

911 Operator Review – Emergency Dispatch Center Simulator

The problem is, a significant portion of emergency calls are not good for a movie – who wants to see Emma Stone playing a cat-owner whose little friend got stuck on a tree…? OK, bad example. 911 Operator, the debut game from Jutsu Games, features not only thrilling events and life-threatening situations but also people who call to report things like a cat stuck on a tree. And it’s your job to navigate chaotic, sometimes biased reports and decide whether help is really needed or someone should simply calm down and wait for the hangover to pass. Despite some repetitions, or perhaps because of them, 911 Operator does a decent job of portraying the life of a dispatch operator, providing a good way to spend your free time.

It is unlikely, however, that one of them is The Elder Scrolls VI. No more details have been revealed so far, but that may change at this year’s E3 in June.

The end of MMORPG? – we analyze the current and future condition of online RPGs

One swallow does not make a summer. What’s the biggest MMORPG right now? World of Warcraft, of course. Well, that’s our swallow right there. Name five more prominent Western MMORPGs. You’ve got two? Nice. In the meantime Asia has churned out dozens of titles. The current condition of Western online RPGs is bad and the market, being the market, prefers the cheaper option. That’s why instead of investing in new IPs, Western publishers tend to import games from the prolific Asian segment. Is that the best they can do?

Diluvion review – ugly duckling of underwater survival

Reviewing Deluvion by Arachnid Studios wasn’t easy for me. On one hand, this game could use some additional budget and a few more months of development – the glitches are numerous and some elements were clearly not given enough thought. On the other hand, though, the game really strikes a chord with me – the atmosphere of the underwater world is unique, the story’s pretty good and the mechanics work quite well. And then you can see the developers were true enthusiasts. Still, is it possible to get over all those deficiencies?

Gothic Sequel – the add-on that never was. A cancelled expansion for the iconic RPG

Unreleased games. I suppose we’ve all heard of at least one such case that made us feel genuinely sorry that it didn’t happen. Not often, however, is such a project revealed after having spent years on a shelf, somewhere deep in the devs’ HQ. Gothic Sequel was to become an expansion for the successful RPG from Piranha Bytes. It didn’t. It was left to rot in limbo and cannibalized, providing plots, mechanics, and names for many of Piranha’s subsequent games, mainly the full-fledged sequel Gothic II and its expansion. How much did it provide? Enough for us to say that had it been released as intended, the history of the Gothic series would have taken a different turn.
