GOG (PC) LucasArts and Disney Deal Announcement - Screenshot 1 (Tie Fighter)

Several of us here have been waiting years for this news: GOG.com has added Star Wars: X-Wing Special Edition and Star Wars: Tie Fighter Special Edition to their library. Actually, the service added six games in total as part of a new deal with new license holders Disney Interactive, including Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, Sam & Max Hit the Road, The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition, and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. All are fantastic, but the two space-based combat flight sims in particular have been sorely missed. And this isn’t all. This batch represents only the first wave of a 20-plus-title deal.

Valkyria Chronicles (PC, PS3) PC Announcement - Header

Sega has revealed via a tweet that Valkyria Chronicles is currently in development for PC. The turn-based strategy has, until now, been exclusive to PS3. The fantastic original spawned two sequels for PSP, the first of which was published in North America in 2010, but the other, the last of the trilogy, remains an untranslated Japan-only release. Fingers crossed this represents a continued interest in the series on Sega’s part.

Rising Star Games has released Kraken Empire’s Steam Greenlighted PC shooter Kromaia. Visually, it looks to be a distant cousin to rhythmic shooter Rez, which means you should probably be prepared for some brain-melting sequences. The final release features four difficulty levels, adaptive AI, destructible environments, several unique pilotable ships, and a handful of gameplay modes, including Story and Score Attack. The game also uses plain text (XML) for easier modification, with players capable of altering AI, level, object, player, and weapon properties.

Strike Suit Zero vets form new studio, announce Fractured Space

Fractured Space (PC) Announcement - Header

Edge Case Games, a new studio formed from veterans of the Strike Suit Zero development team, have announced their first tile: Fractured Space. Unlike the fast-paced mech action of Strike Suit Zero, Fractured Space will be an online-only, team-based strategy title centered on large-scale combat with capital ships. Both teamwork and scale are important aspects of the game, as noted by CEO James Brooksby: “we want to transmit a sense of scale to the player – the feeling of participating in a massive space battle inside their own titanic capital ship, blasting apart enemy ships and working together with other players to achieve a common objective.” Founding community members are also lending a hand during development, an approach the team hopes to continue when the game is added on Steam Early Access next year.
