The open-world post-apocalyptic game Biomutant arrives on May 25, and a new trailer showcases some of the places you'll go. The new "world" trailer highlights some of the locations in the game, such as sweeping countryside environments and peaceful-looking villages, albeit underpinned by the dread and uneasiness of its post-apocalyptic vibes. The game's developer, Experiment 101, says everything in the trailer was captured in-game, including the gameplay and music. There is no combat or action in the trailer, though, but you can check out this Biomutant combat trailer to get up to speed with that. You may also notice that the tone and vibe of the Biomutant trailer is relaxing and quiet, and this was intentional. "And why is it so... quiet... and positive? Because there are too many fast-paced, dark and gritty trailers in this world anyway," the studio said. "We are pretty upbeat people and Biomutant is a colorful game. So zip it and enjoy." Biomutant launches on May 25 for … [Read more...] about Biomutant World Trailer Shows Off Some Gorgeous Environments

Ahead of Biomutant's launch next month, THQ Nordic has unleashed a new trailer showcasing the game's diverse, expansive world. The entirety of the footage from the new Biomutant world trailer was captured in-game, from the hushed orchestral flourishes to the footage capturing the world, its inhabitants, and their cultures. If this is your first Biomutant trailer, you might mistakenly assume the open-world adventure game is some sort of zen platformer, but there's actually a separate trailer from last month that demonstrates combat. For a more general look at Biomutant's gameplay, check out this nearly 10-minute trailer from June. "'And why is it so... quiet... and positive?'" THQ asks rhetorically in the YouTube description for the new trailer. "Because there are too many fast-paced, dark and gritty trailers in this world anyway. We are pretty upbeat people and Biomutant is a colorful game. So zip it and enjoy." The path to Biomutant's May 25 release date has been a … [Read more...] about Biomutant’s latest trailer is a tour of its wonderfully diverse world
Director Richard Kelly has revealed that he's working on more stories set in the Donnie Darko universe. Of course, a sequel already exists – 2009’s S. Darko, which centered on Donnie’s younger sister. But Kelly had zero involvement with that. "I've been working on a lot more story that could exist in the Donnie Darko universe, and it’s been really rewarding," he reveals to GamesRadar+'s sister publication, SFX Magazine , in the latest issue. "I’ve been under a lot of pressure to deliver – a lot of people are very passionate about me returning to this world." The original movie was released in 2001 and stars Jake Gyllenhaal as the titular character, a troubled teenager who has visions of Frank, a mysterious figure in a rabbit costume who informs him that the world will end in 28 days and begins to manipulate him. The supporting cast includes big names like Maggie Gyllenhaal, Drew Barrymore, and Patrick Swayze. "There’s a scene in the film where you see Donnie lying in … [Read more...] about Donnie Darko director Richard Kelly is working on more stories in the Darko universe
The history of mazes and labyrinths is a maze itself. The first recorded labyrinth was commissioned by the Egyptian king Amenemhet III thousands of years ago: unlike the Minotaur labyrinth of Greek myth, this was built to be lived in, with banqueting halls, temples, and offices. Since then, mazes have been cut from turf, mosaicked on cathedral floors, stamped on coins, hacked into cornfields, formed by parking tourbuses, and fashioned from hedgerows as dallying spots for English aristocrats. Mazes and labyrinths generate a surprising range of emotions. Partly, this is because the former isn't quite the same as the latter. The associations of the noun 'maze' are largely negative, referring to bewilderment, deceit and worldly distraction. A labyrinth is a similarly confusing structure, but the word has acquired more positive senses over time—it can serve as a place for reverie and contemplation. Psychotherapists like Dr. Lauren Artress have even prescribed labyrinth-walking as a form … [Read more...] about Unraveling the curious history of videogame mazes and labyrinths
Uncharted might have once been PlayStation's golden goose, but the reaction to a recent report into The Last of Us remake revealed it's curious position in the wider landscape now. News that Day's Gone developer Sony Bend were in the pre-production phase of a new Uncharted game would have almost certainly dominated headlines years ago, but now it seems to be a curious side note, nothing more than a bit of color buried under bigger revelations. But it nevertheless offers up a tantalising glimpse of a potential future for fans. While Bloomberg reporter Jason Schreier has gone on to state that this project might not exist now , he also said in a recent appearance on the MinnMax show that it was “supposed to be an Uncharted spin-off, not Uncharted 5 or something like that. For sure there will be new Uncharted games in the future, who knows if that particular one will continue. But that doesn't even mean anything, it was just paper design.” So while it's unlikely that we'll be … [Read more...] about Uncharted might be making a comeback, but should it be with Naughty Dog?
