Arcen Games is happy to announce The Last Federation’s first expansion Betrayed Hope is set to officially release November 14th on Steam, GOG.com, Humble and other digital storefronts. We thought highly of it in our review. To celebrate, both the base game and expansion content will carry special launch week discounts through November 21st.
Arcen Games have consistently worked to break the mold of genres, or combining genres in unique ways. They haven’t always been successful with every outing, but have something interesting to offer. Each game of theirs has an overarching goal, and how you reach that goal is left up to you. The Last Federation is wildly entertaining as it contains 4X elements, and plays like a turn-based shoot’em up. It’s every bit exciting as it sounds.
From the creators of AI War: Fleet Command comes an all-new grand strategy title with turn-based tactical combat, set in a deep simulation of an entire solar system and its billions of inhabitants. You are the last of a murdered race, determined to unify or destroy the 8 others. But you must work from the shadows, using superior technology.
Once you got past the horrendous and out-of-place intro song, Bionic Dues treats you to a delightful and difficult experience that I’ve rarely had with a game of this type before: nonstop fun. Bionic Dues calls itself a “roguelite”, which is saying that it’s actually approachable, there’s an ending, and it’s safe to die – you just have to revert to an earlier save to give it another go.
Arcen Games has made a diverse collection of games, including their newest, Shattered Haven. The game is an interesting mix of survival elements with puzzle solving using the environment. Oh, and there’s zombies. But this time, done in a meaningful way and create a sense of fear and tension when they’re around.
