gamescom 2021 | Thunderful and Headup to attend with five titles at gamescom now, with more surprises in store across the event
gamescom is happening digitally this year, and Thunderful Publishing as well as Headup are going to be part of the show. Expect to see five of their upcoming titles showcased on gamescom now. Free demos for White Shadows and Crowns & Pawns will also be available on Steam, so keep an eye out on their respective game pages.
In Firegirl you’ll chop through obstacles and extinguish dastardly pyro-monsters, use your hose to boost your jumps and reach normally inaccessible places to rescue trapped civilians (and cats!). Hang out at the Firehouse between missions to upgrade your equipment and hire new staff. You’ll need all the help you can get to prepare for the next fire outbreak!
Source of Madness is a side-scrolling dark action roguelite set in the Loam Lands, a twisted Lovecraftian inspired world powered by procedural generation and AI machine learning which offers ever-changing landscapes to explore and new monstrosities to face on every run. Choose a class, upgrade your skills, and unlock all manner of magic abilities as you collect loot and items left behind by those who came before you.
White Shadows is a modern fable about escaping a dark, weird and violent world. With its striking black and white visuals, deep allegorical story and satisfying puzzles, this 2.5 platformer is a truly unique proposition.
INDUSTRIA is a surreal, narrative-based first-person shooter. Set in 1989 upon the eve of the fall of the Berlin Wall, you play as a scientist named Nora who is searching for her missing loved one, Dr. Walter Rosendal. Her efforts to find him take her to a mysterious parallel dimension that merges East Berlin’s brutalist architecture with futuristic robots and mysterious apparatuses. Where are you? When are you? And what has befallen the missing Dr. Rosendal?
Last but not least, pack your bags and escape to Eastern-Europe with Crowns and Pawns, a beautifully hand-painted adventure game reminiscent of the classic Broken Sword franchise.
All of these games and some more will also be showcased at this week’s AHEAD gamescom live stream event, which is taking place on Thursday and Friday at 9 AM PST / 12 PM EST / 6 PM CEST.
