Darwin Project Is Now Free to Play on Steam!

After adding tons of new content to Darwin Project since its Early Access launch, including Duo Mode, skill-based matchmaking, limited-time events, optimization, and gameplay improvements, Scavengers Studio is today making Darwin Project free to play on Steam.

“We’ve said from the start that we’re committed to creating a fresh and exciting experience for Darwin Project players and viewers. With features like the Show Director who serves as a master of ceremonies, Spectator Interactions that let viewers directly interact with streams, and an emphasis on tracking that ensures players are always within arm’s reach of a tense confrontation, we still believe Darwin Project offers a quality experience unlike any other battle royale game out there.
“We’ve been fortunate to have a core community of players join us at a very early stage, with many still supporting us during Early Access, and the last thing we want to do is let those passionate players down. Lately, members of our community have reported longer queue times and difficulty finding matches in lesser populated servers. To bring in new players and maintain a level of activity that ensures players are able to get the most out of Darwin Project, we’ve decided to make it more accessible by removing the price tag.
“We’re aware that it’s a big change, and we want to reiterate that we’re remaining true to Darwin Project’s vision as we move forward,” says Simon Darveau, Creative Director on Darwin Project.


Simply head to Steam to download Darwin Project to join the manhunt as a contestant or Show Director, or tune in to Twitch or Mixer livestreams to influence the outcome of Darwin Project matches as a spectator.

Darwin Project is free to play on Steam. For the latest updates, visit Scavengers Studio's official website or follow them on Facebook, Twitter, Discord, Reddit and Instagram.

Life is Strange figurines and Farewell!

We received an awesome package, here at our DumeeGamer HQ; two super awesome figurines of Life is Strange: Before the Storm! I’m sure you recognize them; they are, of course, our beloved Rachel Amber and Chloe Price.


I’m pretty sure that you all know who those two cool teenagers are. If not, you missed out on an awesome game! So, why don’t you start by reading my article about the entire series?

If you are one of the smart people who pre-ordered the Deluxe Edition of Life is Strange: Before the Storm, then you can enjoy the excellent bonus episode “Farewell”, in which you’ll take a peek into the lives of Max and Chloe and see what they were up to before the events of the first Life is Strange game. Max knows she is going to move to another city.


On one of her final days as an Arcadia Bay citizen, we see her visiting her best friend Chloe. Max is feeling nervous because she still hasn’t told Chloe about her moving away (talking about procrastination behavior).  Trying to find the right moment, Max and Chloe find a treasure from the past and relive some memories of their childhood together. A beautiful and touching story to conclude this intense series about friendship and bravery, I will tell you that!

Thank you Square Enix, Deck Nine and Dontnod for this amazing adventure and also a big thanks to the PR company Triple Entertainment for sending over this awesome gift!

Monstrous Naval Combat unleashed with Maelstrom!

Gunpowder Games announce that their rip-roaring fantasy naval battle game is available on Steam Early Access. Fast-paced fantasy naval combat game Maelstrom launches on Steam Early Access for $19.99 with a 10% discount for those who purchase during launch week. Watch the release trailer here!


Load the Cannons!
Players begin each battle on the outskirts of a large map filled with fog banks to hide in, swift currents, deadly maelstroms and monsters. By sinking NPC ships or other warships, players collect treasure and powerups (called boons) which grant significant combat bonuses for the rest of the battle. When a ship is sunk, its loot bobs to the surface, to be snagged by whoever can swoop in fastest!

As more players sink, the monster infested ‘Dead Waters’ encroach on the outer areas of the map,
reducing the play area and forcing a climactic showdown. Entering Dead Waters is not an instant
death sentence, but no captain can avoid the wrath of the beasts which lurk there for long. Only one
ship will be left afloat. All players receive rewards based on the gold collected during battle, bounties
claimed by sinking others, and how long they survived.

Gunpowder Games Lead Developer Blaine Smith said: “We’re stoked to finally turn the game loose and see how players react to the monsters and chaos of 16 warships trying to outwit each other, trading broadsides and blasting the bits off each other in battle!”

New ships and upgrade options are purchased with gold, while mates and captains will be attracted by the infamy of those who perform well in battle. Before each battle, players choose one of nine ships, each of which has different strengths, weaknesses, and a unique passive ability. They can then
customize it with up to three crew mates offering stat boosts, a captain providing a signature special
ability, and a number of feature choices which can change everything from how the cannons work to
providing a speed or maneuverability advantage.

Stretch Goals Continue on Steam!
The Maelstrom Kickstarter succeeded with backers giving their time and money generously as they
joined beta playtests to put Maelstrom through its paces. The development team collected enough
useful data and feedback to fill a treasure galleon, with a lot of fun had by all!


In addition to the features and content already planned on the development roadmap, the Maelstrom
team will be continuing where the Kickstarter left off. Early Access stretch goals will be linked to the
number of copies sold. The first goal is set for 10,000 players, with a single player campaign slated to
unlock at 125,000 players.

Maelstrom is out now on Steam Early Access for Windows!

Ritual from iFun4All studio!

Ritual is a new project by iFun4All, the developer behind such titles as Serial Cleaner, Green Game: Time Swapper and Red Game Without a Great Name.


Ritual is a 3D dark action game in a top-down perspective set in a dangerous world inspired by Weird West genre. The story focuses on the young bounty hunter who receives the task of escorting an eccentric girl to her family home. A simple mission turns into an endless journey over increasingly grotesque places, besieged every night by unearthly monsters. The hero must defend the girl from hordes of enemies, not knowing if she is the way to escape from this hellish situation, or the reason for it.


In addition to various weapons an arsenal of traps, supporting potions, building materials to create barricades and ammunition will be at the player's disposal. Almost all of those need to be crafted using the environment and objects found on the map. However, the ability to quickly pull the trigger is not enough to survive, it will be necessary to make tactical decisions and strategically manage available resources. The game will use real-world data technology (RWD), which will influence the game in a unique way.

Ritual will be available in the second half of this year and is being developed for PCs and consoles in mind. PLease visit the official website for more info or Facebook / Twitter to stay tuned!
