Detroit: Become Human

Adventure 25 May 2018

An action-adventure game set in a science-fiction world, created by developers from the French studio Quantic Dreams – creators of such games as Fahrenheit, Beyond: Two Souls and the bestselling Heavy Rain. Detroit: Become Human expands on ideas present in the 2012 year’s demo Kara, which depicted a female android developing human emotions. The game takes place in the futuristic version of Detroit, where humanoid robots are a common sight. But the main protagonist – the android Kara – is special, as she is the only one possessing real human feelings. Those emotions are what drives her to learn more about herself and other robots, and if it’s possible – to shape her own future. With the help of players, of course.

The developers took extra care to reflect the various types of human behavior and feelings of the characters in as realistic a way as possible.

Journey
Journey

Adventure 13 March 2012

Developed by the thatgamecompany studio, Journey is a remarkably unique exploration game, in which we embark on a journey through the desert sands. Our goal is to reach the summit of a great mountain, constantly visible on the horizon. A distinctive feature of Journey is the fact that we do not get a lot of exposure - the production lacks a classic narrative and does not have any dialogues; the nature of our protagonist and of the world we are in, which once harbored a mighty civilization, is all but unknown to us, a mystery, the true nature of which we can only speculate. The game consists of semi-open levels, which contain various puzzles and hidden locations. After passing through each of them we arrive at the next stage and the accompanying cut-scenes allow us to gradually discover and interpret the subsequent fragments of the plot. Journey also has one very intriguing curio - while playing the online mode we can encounter other players and at any time start playing in the co-op mode - but we still have to make do without verbal communication. All of the above is distinguished by an unusual, melancholic atmosphere and very artistic visuals, with focus on a minimalistic but incisive graphic style.

Another major installment in the bestselling turn-based strategy game series that focus on a humorous rivalry between the eponymous worms.

The participants make their moves in turns and their actions are limited by a time limit. The game refers to the initial two-dimensional installments of the series, which means that battles are presented from the classical side view. The title does not lack for several enriching novelties, though. These include the possibility to hide inside buildings and to use vehicles that allow us to traverse the battlefield and deal damage to the enemy. Visually, the production features the characteristic cartoonish visual style, although the worms’ appearance and animation were refreshed.
