Project Awakening

  • Cygames held a Tech Conference last weekend which revealed new footage for the Action-RPG Project Awakening. The last we saw of the game was back in 2018 when a trailer was finally revealed during TGS.
  • Now new footage has been unveiled featuring the Cyllista engine demo on which the game runs on, confirmed by the official Cygames Tech Con website. This video features the game’s terrain and foliage. While it doesn’t give any new details about the gameplay, it does show some beautiful scenery, and what to expect in terms of surroundings in the game.
  • When we last talked to Cygames back in 2019, they still had a few finer details to pin down, whether it would be heavily story-driven or focus more on gameplay. What we do know is that the high-fantasy concept seems to be prevalent, with big boss battles to look forward to.

Salt and Sacrifice

  • In the latest footage released by developers Ska Studios and Devoured Studios for upcoming sequel Salt and Sacrifice, we get a closer look at mage hunting, crafting and also online co-op.
