PAX Prime 2015 is coming up rather quickly and it seem developers are eager to try out new things this year to bring attention to their games. We already have Telltale Games hosting a special 'Crowd Play' event at the show where up to 500 people can sit down with the developers and play through the new upcoming Episode 4: Escape Plan Bravo for Tales from the Borderlands.
Ankama seems to be quite busy these days when it comes to developing mobile games. Currently the company has at least three games that we know of in the works for Android, a couple of which we have already talked about including WAKFU Raiders. We can now add a fourth game to this list called Tactile Wars which just soft launched today onto Google Play in select regions.
Catfishblues Games has releases an interesting new running game onto Google Play called Brave Knight Rush. This particular game is a blend of arcade gaming, which takes inspiration from the old school Ghouls N' Goblins game, and third-person running games to create a level-based action running title.
Up until now the next iteration of Android has simply been known as Android M. That, however, has changed today as Google has made it official that Android 6.0 will be called Android Marshmallow. Along with the new name, the new developer preview is now available as well as the new SDK 6.0 for developers.
Between now and the upcoming release of Gameloft's sequel to their popular MMORPG Order & Chaos, the company will be revealing some of the new features coming with Order & Chaos 2: Redemption. Today Gameloft has revealed a new race as well as a new class that will be making their first appearance in this new game.
Square Enix has been running a new program lately called the Square Enix Collective program which is basically the company's third-party promotional arm. Square Enix provides indie developers various support while they developer their games. Today they are showing off a rather interesting Anime-style game called Armor Blitz.
Released by Breta Games, Upong is a simple, break-breaker like game yet has its own identity. Upong retains the idea of a bouncing ball and a horizontally sliding pad that players control at the bottom of the screen. Where it differs is is the fact that players will be responsible to navigate the square shaped ball around obstacles instead of destroying them.
Not too long ago we teamed up with Gamevil to give our readers some in-game goodies for Gamevil's newly released Dungeon Link game. Everyone seemed to have liked that quite a lot so we have done it again but this time teaming up with Herocraft for their new Warhammer 40K: Space Wolf game.
Laser Dog, known for previous games Puk and Alone, have been working on a great retro-style platformer called Hopiko for awhile now. In fact we reported on this game coming to Android back in April of this year. So it has been a few months since we've heard anything about when this game will be released. Now we have a release date finally thanks to a post on Vine from the developers.
Firefly Studios has announced today that they will be bringing their popular PC strategy MMO game called Stronghold Kingdoms to Android next year. The Android version of this game actually came about because of the game's community requesting it enough that it literally made the Android version of the game a reality. Originally, this game was only announced for iOS.
Phosphor Games seems to have teamed up with NRG Energy for a game called The Path To Luma which was just released onto Android the other day. We don't get to use the word beautiful too often with mobile games unfortunately, but visually, The Path To Luma is a beautiful game.
