I never thought I'd see the day: New games inspired by the old Zelda games on CD-I.

Just what the world needs, Cd-i nostalgia. It looks pretty good though.

Former Stardew Valley developer announces city life simulation game Sunkissed City for consoles, PC

Due out in Q4 2024.

Arthur "Mr. Podunkian" Lee, who previously worked on Stardew Valley at ConcernedApe, has announced Sunkissed City, a new life simulation game set in the city. It will launch for PC via Steam in Q4 2024, followed by consoles at a later date.

Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:

About
Welcome to your new life in Apollo City, a sun-kissed seaside metropolis that's pumping with funky vibes and quirky characters.

As a fresh hire for the monolithic Pico corporation's new "Peco Pioneer" pilot program, you've been tasked with fostering a relationship with Apollo's vibrant community and putting in a good word for Pico's new eco-focused initiatives.

But all is not well in these bustling streets. The local wildlife has begun to behave more aggressively, the waters are devoid of life, monsters are pouring out from the sewers, and that's not to mention the constant migraines everyone's been having lately.

Key Features
  • Enjoy a Fresh Start in Apollo City! – The city is a big place packed with a myriad of opportunities to occupy the days and nights of your new city life! Tend to do-it-yourself gardens set up by a local band of "plant-punks", spend a quiet afternoon in the park soaking up a good book, or schmooze it up with the locals over coffee at the Weird Dog Cafe. Snap photos of the wildlife around the city and its surrounds. Try your hand at fishing up "the big one" at Marin Shores. Forage for delicious edibles on a hike at Pinnacle Peak. Or perhaps a daring dive into the city's monster infested sewers is more your speed? You could always take up a gig sorting out shipments at the Pico warehouse for some extra cash.
  • Reinvent Yourself! – With endless, deep customization options, you can be whoever you want to be. Pop into Threads to scope out the next piece of your new favorite fit, or get a complete makeover at Salon Flamingo. Make your clothing items your own with hundreds of different colors, patterns and material combinations. Give your living spaces your personal touch with a variety of fun, functional furniture pieces, or liven up your walls and floors with dozens of wallpaper and flooring types.
  • Socialize with the Cityfolk! – Apollo City is home to a host of kooky characters to get to know (and love!). Build up your relationships with the locals and they'll open up to you with their daily successes and hardships. Brighten their day by gifting them hand-crafted presents (or maybe even some things you found in the trash…), and help them navigate their sometimes-messy lives in Apollo. You never know when they'll repay the favor. And if you're on the market to find that special someone, perhaps you'll find others in the city looking for the same!
  • Take Back Apollo! – Work with the Keby, mysterious, prank-loving forest creatures, to tackle the various maladies afflicting the city and take back Apollo from the forces draining it of its color!
  • Explore the City with Friends!Sunkissed City features both online and split-screen multiplayer cooperative modes for you to enjoy your new city life alongside friends and family. Customize your experience with per-player difficulty and accessibility options to tailor the experience to groups of any gaming ability!

Hmm. I'm struggling to think of the last console I played on an in store demo stand.

I know the switch had/has them, but I haven't used one, I did try but the controls didn't work so I gave up and bought one not long after anyway. I vaguely recall seeing a PS5 in one because as I entered the local shopping centre the PS5's sheer size towered over everything else around and was visible from where I parked.

I've seen the series X/S have fake ones stuck to a bit of wood, but they don't count since you can't play them.

I haven't used one from current or last gen. I don't think I've even played a PS3 OR Xbox 360 on a demo unit.

I think the last time I saw and played an in-store demo unit was either the Xbox or GameCube... Jesus.

Call of Duty 2 for the Xbox 360 sticks out in my mind. I remember playing the D-Day level at a kiosk. So almost 20 years ago? The tweet's picture is from around 2013 since GTA V is being advertised.

Those poor controllers, though. Those things were always destroyed. And it always felt gross to touch one, I can't even imagine doing that post-COVID.
