Get your first look at Yet Another Fantasy Title, the upcoming open-world action-RPG parody game that pokes fun at all of the cliched fantasy-game tropes. It's in development for PC from the makers of Rustler (aka Grand Theft Horse).


Yet Another Fantasy Title (YAFT) is an open-world, top-down action RPG set in an absurd fantasy universe full of pop-culture references. Play as the Rogue who uses a sword and a bow as a warm welcome to anyone who crosses his path.

Remember, respect is everything
You are a rogue in a fantasy world. Most epic characters usually just kill your kind for side quests. But not you! Get rid of the handsome knight in shining armor, steal his unicorn and become The Chosen One… by accident. Find respect among elves, dwarves, goblins, and orcs that populate the world. They might help you on your quests!

Image

Fight all kinds of fantastic creatures
Set on a journey to kill the dragon that terrorizes the neighborhood. Fight stinky ogres, wicked goblins, and huge bridge trolls. Complete various epic quests and crazy missions, or don’t give a damn about the story and bring chaos to the valleys and villages. Fight with a sword or a bow while exploring the dirty fantasy world on foot, via cart, or by a tamed wolf. All that and more spiced up with a ridiculous sense of humor.

Image

Complete absurd quests
Learn spells that will make your enemies flee. Treat them with fire and ice or simply blow up the entire battlefield. Tired of magic? Grab your sword and wreak havoc all around. After all that hard work, join a group of orcs for a frivolous evening. Throw bottles of the filthiest possible liquor at nasty goblins. Or rob the rich, don’t give anything to the poor, and see for yourself how it feels to get hit in the head by a bottle.

Image

Burn them all!
Learn magic from a suspicious wizard who drinks way too many potions. Slay the mighty dragon. Wanna experience some monster-hunting? Or pimp-a-wolf a bit? Maybe steal The Ring from The Gang of The Ring? Easy peasy. Gather your magical homies’ respect and rule the kingdom with their help. Without you, there’s no injustice in the world. Not unless you make it.

Use disposable android bodies to take down megacorps in this cyberpunk FPS

Deadlink is one of those roguelites where it makes perfect sense when you die.



A roguelike cyber-shooter is sitting on Steam's hot releases this weekend: Deadlink, a game where you're part of an elite anti-evil-corporation task force uses remote-piloted androids called "autonomous combat shells" to bring a brand of vicious justice "for a fraction of the cost of a hopeless court case."

It's a shooter of ever-escalating tension and speed, where slowing down is a good way to immediately die. There are lots of high-adrenaline, amped-up abilities to collect and use in conjunction with your guns—which is good, because you're going up against tanks, drones, and swarms of security goons and/or hired thugs.

During runs against the corps you build up a suite of implants to use, triggered by stuff like swapping weapons, using your grappling hook, and using your other powers. That's how you build up synergies with your weapons and figure out combos to carry you through the levels. When you inevitably die you get currency, based on how far you got, to spend on permanent upgrades.

Deadlink is currently in Early Access, so there's a limit on how much you can play right now. There are two levels, each of which is decently sized. There are also two android chassis to pilot, the thunderously aggressive Soldier and the speedier Hunter. The developers plan for it to be in Early Access for about a year.

Ways to build vary pretty greatly, from long-distance sniping and status afflictions to full-auto attacks or close-range strikes using shotguns. A few elemental effects, like fire and acid, let you customize further. Fans of it are comparing the game to fast-paced shooters like Ultrakill and Doom Eternal. "Combat is a really good mix of old-school Quake and Hades," says (opens in new tab) one Steam reviewer.

You can find Deadlink on Steam (opens in new tab) in Early Access, where it's $20, or 20% off until October 25th. It's developed by Gruby Entertainment and published by SuperGG.com.

Gruby Entertainment is a small indie based in Warsaw, Poland, and Deadlink seems to be their first game. SuperGG previously published games like Deflector and Raji: An Ancient Epic.

Portal with RTX is launching December 8th, bringing full ray tracing and DLSS 3 to one of the best video games of all time. Here’s a quick look at DLSS 3 performance gains. 

Portal with RTX is a free DLC for all Portal owners developed by NVIDIA Lightspeed Studios. Experience the critically acclaimed and award-winning Portal™ reimagined with ray tracing. Every frame of gameplay is upgraded with stunning full ray tracing, new, hand-crafted hi-res physically based textures, and new, enhanced high-poly models evocative of the originals, all in stunning 4K. In Portal with RTX, full ray tracing transforms each level, enabling light to bounce and be affected by the scene’s geometry and materials. Every light is ray-traced and casts shadows, global illumination indirect lighting naturally illuminates and darkens rooms, volumetric ray-traced lighting scatters through fog and smoke, and shadows are pixel perfect.
