Indies highlights coming to PS4 & PS5 in October 2022

Game Ace Pro 0 0 Article rating: No rating

It’s October, and you know what that means–freaks and frights are abounding! There’s no better time to dive deep into some wildly experimental and stylish survival horror than the Halloween spooky season, and this month’s PlayStation Indies delivers on that front. As for the “freaks”–well, we’ve got a gaggle of very strange creatures and some beastly brawlers straight outta the barnyard. Oh, and a geometric object so terrifying it makes alien apex predators tremble in fear. Let’s take a look at what you can look forward to on PS4 and PS5 this month.

The Eternal Cylinder 

The imaginative minds at developer ACE Team (Rock of Ages, Zeno Clash, Abyss Odyssey) have returned with an otherworldly adventure. A majestic planet exists far away in the universe, teeming with strange lifeforms all struggling for survival. Yet even in this harsh environment, one threat looms above all others: the crushing, destructive might of the Cylinder. 

You take control of a Trebhum, an odd pack-traveling creature blessed with the power to transform and adapt to environments by eating. Explore four beautiful alien biomes–savannah, tundra, desert, and a freaky mutated infected sector–all while metamorphosing your herd of Trebhums to react to the dangers posed by the environments and other creatures. Grow extra legs to build your stamina, extendable eyes to get a better view of your surroundings, and bloat up your body for extra inventory space. Explore, evolve, and discover the Cylinder’s secrets before it destroys everything.

Release Date: October 13 | Publisher: Good Shepherd | PS5

Indies highlights coming to PS4 & PS5 in October 2022

Them’s Fightin’ Herds

Small, cute animals bring big-time rompin’, stompin’ action in this unorthodox one-on-one fighting game from Mane6. Made by and for fans of the genre, Them’s Fightin’ Herds is a beautifully animated, humor-filled critter combat game featuring character designs from acclaimed animation producer Lauren Faust. These fuzzy, scaly fighters might run on four legs, but they’ve got just as many slick fighting skills as their human counterparts, bolstered by magic energy that can be used for movement and offense skills that are unique to each character. If beating down the barn doors with your local buddies isn’t enough, you can battle hoof-to-claw with friends both on and offline, thanks to smooth rollback netcode. 

All Hallows’: The Land of Lost Dreams is calling…

Game Ace Pro 0 0 Article rating: No rating

Spooky season is nearly here – and what could be scarier than a purgatory dimension haunted by half-finished ideas and forgotten concepts? Our annual made-in-Dreams Halloween celebration is nearly ready to welcome you – and all of your cruelly abandoned WIPs, you monster – to The Land of Lost Dreams.

This year, we asked the Dreams coMmunity to design strange and unusual glades for players to explore in our Forest of Gloom, and Cursed Trinkets that represent the essence of their creative energy. And oh boy, do they have a lot of that. Our eyes have seen some truly inexplicable things. The cosmic void will be eating well this year.

‘But when will we get to visit the cosmic void?’, we hear you cry and wail and gnash (you should really stop doing that, it’s terrible for your teeth). We’re delighted to reveal that All Hallows’: The Land of Lost Dreams will be live in Dreams and open to visitors from October 20th, 2022! (Internet connection required for online play.)

What awaits you there? Here’s a quick look at some of the main attractions of the area…

Tall Tales and Quirky Quests

The Land of Lost Dreams is a curious place, with a rich and unnerving history to uncover. You’ll meet, and help out, plenty of odd characters on your main quest by sneaking around, solving puzzles and much more besides. Some faces may even be familiar to those who’ve been following Dreams’ development for a long time…

The Forest of Gloom

One of The Land of Lost Dreams’ most beautiful and unpredictable locales, this explorable wooded area contains all manner of interactive oddities made by the Dreams community. Take a stroll! See the sights! Don’t think too hard about what might be hiding in the bushes!

Cursed Trinket Shrines

Want to soak up some culture? Look no further than The Land of Lost Dreams’ fabulous collection of cursed trinkets, hand-crafted by dreamers. You’ll have to visit some odd-looking places to find them, but we’re assured that as long as you’ve had your tetanus shot, they’re probably safe to visit.

We’re really just scratching the surface here – there’s even more to discover in The Land of Lost Dreams when it appears in Dreams next month. If only there were some kind of travel brochure for would-be visitors to read for more information, provided by a totally legit tourist board? Now that would be useful. Better keep an eye out for anything like that over on our editorial blog, The Impsider.

Streams and Screams!

We’ll also be running two Halloween-themed livestreams over on the official Mm Twitch channel to celebrate the season! The first will be our launch day stream for All Hallows’: The Land of Lost Dreams, at 9am PT / 5pm BST, 20th October, in which we’ll be playing through the full event and checking out plenty of the coMmunity-made goodness on display.
