Blasphemous, the new 2D platformer from makers of The Last Door, hits Kickstarter target
From the team that produced the multiple award winning platform game, The Last Door, comes a new title, Blasphemous. The game, also a 2 dimensional action platformer, features old school, but well crafted sprite -based visuals and no small quantity of blood and gore. The Kickstarter is still open, so if you want to get yourself a perk or simply be amongst the first to play the game, you can make it happen here.
NACIYE is a somewhat familiar tale of a couple who arrive at the new home they have just rented, only to be confronted by a seemingly dangerous woman, claiming to be the rightful owner. It’s a story we’ve all heard before, but the film is said to have a Turkish twist which lends it some unique characteristics. It’s available now on Video on demand.
