Solar Powered Games – Highrisers
Together with publisher Assemble, Munich-based developer Solar Powered Games released the pixel-art survival retro game Highrisers on Steam on July 15. In it, you lead a team of four survivors through an urban wasteland of abandoned skyscrapers and high-rises, where the streets are crowded with the mutated victims of a mysterious disease. Humanity has been ravaged by a mysterious prion disease that traps the infected in an eternal dream. Unable to wake up again, they transform into the mysterious Dreamers: sleepwalking, zombie-like creatures that shun the light. Four survivors are trapped on top of a skyscraper. To survive, they must be resourceful and work together. When you purchase the Save the World Edition of Highrisers, publisher Assemble will donate 10% of the proceeds to the International Rescue Committee (IRC) for humanitarian aid in Yemen. Also, follow Solar Powered Games on Twitter – where you can currently find lots of pixel art animations and graphics straight from the game.
Frikapps: Fatum Cards
The company Frikapps from Passau is brand new on our radar. On July 3, the team released their first project in the Google Play Store with the app for the card game Fatum Cards. FATUM is a powerful yet simple tool that allows you to create full-fledged stories for your 5th Edition DnD characters or for other fantasy RPG characters. Although it was developed for fantasy/epic roleplaying systems, FATUM is also suitable for other artistic creations, whether you are a writer, scriptwriter or illustrator. Discover the FATUM universe and the lovingly illustrated cards for your next fantasy adventure. More from Frikapps can be found here on Twitter.
