Firewatch developer Campo Santo acquired by Valve

Developers Campo Santo of the acclaimed indie title Firewatch have announced they will be joining Valve. On the surface it may seems a rather unlikely acquisition by a company at Valve but the developers have penned a short blog post that tries to explain it all. The good news is that they will continue to work on their previously announced game In the Valley of Gods.

Chuchel out now

Amanita Design, the indie dev behind modern adventure games Machinarium, Botanicula and Samorost 3, has launched CHUCHEL on Windows PC and Mac platforms. Just like any Amanita game before, CHUCHEL immediately strikes you with its distinctive visual style and sheer playfulness, however, CHUCHEL is not a matter of complex backgrounds and extraordinarily complicated puzzles – this time it is all about humor, laughs and cherries.

Why cherries? Because that’s what Chuchel, the game’s eponymous hairy hero, craves the most. He needs the players’ help to overcome various challenges ranging from logical puzzles to robot battles to escaping swarms of berserk Pac-Men in order to reclaim the precious red fruit. Each level is built upon original animation style of Jaromir Plachy and fittingly witty music, courtesy of the IGF Award winning Czech band DVA.

CHUCHEL is out now for $9.99 through Steam, GOG.com, Humble Store, itch.io, the Mac App Store and the game’s official website: www.chuchel.net. CHUCHEL Cherry Edition – containing the full game, 44-minute original soundtrack by DVA, 89-page digital art book featuring design drawings and concept arts from the creator of CHUCHEL Jaromir Plachy and a CHUCHEL Sans font – is also available for $15.
CHUCHEL is expected to land on Android and iOS devices later in Q2 2018.

Somerville – A new game from Ex Playdead Founder Dino Patti

When Dino Patti the co-founder of Playdead left the studio some of us wondered where he was heading to next. He has just annouced the founding of a new independent studio Jumpship located in the UK. They are currently working on their debut title Somerville.

It has been described as

A Sci-Fi Action Adventure that chronicles the lives of key individuals in the wake of a global catastrophe.

While no platforms or details other than that have been announced it would be safe to assume that the game would come to Windows at some time in the future.

This is a short teaser trailer for the game. You can find more details about the game and the new studio here
