Dolmen Kickstarter Campaign

The Dead Space series is sadly no more as EA shut down developer Visceral Games last year, but the torch can still be carried by other developers. One such developer is Massive Work Studio, who has announced a Kickstarter campaign for their survival action RPG game called Dolmen.

As can be seen on the Kickstarter page for Dolmen, the campaign is asking for $90,000 to fund the project. Things are off to a very good start so far, with there already being nearly $20,000 raised with the help of over 350 backers as of this writing. There are currently 28 days left in the campaign.

What’s interesting to note here is that the developers are actually offering a demo for the game, giving everyone a taste of the game early. You have to pledge $10 or more in order to get access to the demo, but it’s risk free considering that you can just cancel your pledge if you don’t like it.

The developers mention on the game’s Kickstarter page that Dolmen blends cosmic horror and sci-fi, being a third-person action game with RPG elements. This is unique enough in its own right, but it also features “a lovecraftian plot that calls players to find what’s behind the darkest secret of the universe.”

The game is obviously in the very early stages of development and where it goes from here depends upon the success of the Kickstarter campaign, but the developers do have an idea of when they’ll have the game out by. Dolmen is currently targeting a Q4 2019 release on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. There will also be alpha and beta testing for those who back the game, with the first one set for the second quarter of this year for Tier 1 (and up) backers.

Be sure to check out a trailer for Dolmen below.

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.

Nike, the maker of high-quality shoes, is working with Bandai Namco, the company that makes the Tekken series, to make a pair of sneakers. The fun competition is part of the franchise’s 30th anniversary celebrations. You can get your own pair for $250 or the equivalent in your country, though they’ll probably be worth a lot more on the sneakerhead black market.

Two pairs of Tekken 8 x Nike Air Foamposite One Fist sneakers are set to come out in September 2024, according to shoe fan Sole Retriever (thanks, VGC). The designs are based on Kazuya and Jin, two main characters in the series. You can get them at Nike and some other stores. People who like hypebeasts and fighting games are likely to buy these quickly, so if you like Tekken and shoes that make people talk, you should probably act fast.

Should Bandai Namco and Nike work together? What do you think? Are you going to fight for your own pair? Make sure to take good care of your shoes and keep their value in the comments section below.

There will soon be a new book in Future Press’s Books of Knowledge series, which is FromSoftware’s officially licensed line of hardcover strategy guides. This will help players who are having trouble with Elden Ring’s Shadow of the Erdtree expansion. The base game came with two books, and now you can get the unholy trinity for $45 (or the equivalent amount in your currency). It will ship on September 30th.

Like the first two games, The Lands Between and Shards of Shattering, Shadow of the Erdtree is both a complete guide to how to play and a beautiful artbook with full-page pictures of enemies, landscapes, and weapons. This big book has 352 pages and is likely to sell out quickly, based on how quickly the ones that came before it did.

Do you know a lot about strategy guides? You could read the first two Books of Knowledge. If so, what did you think of them? Leave a comment below and let us know.
