Full Steam Ahead! Daedalic and Corbie Games Publish First Major Update for Train Sim Bounty Train

Update builds on the player and press feedback of five months in Early Access, introducing a bunch of new features and optimizations

Hamburg, Germany, February 8, 2016 | Daedalic Entertainment and Corbie Games have published the first major update for their historical train sim Bounty Train for PC and Mac, currently in Steam Early Access. This update combines all the feedback by players and press collected over the course of the last months; further updates on the way to the full release in the second quarter of 2016 are already scheduled.

About the update: The new day/night cycle adds a realistic touch, and the developers have tweaked the whole ingame economy to allow for smoother play. A number of new events make travelling more exciting. And players may now change the loadout of characters and customize their cabins, both features enabling them to develop a more individual play-style. Additionally countless small optimizations and bugfixes are introduced, among them a new save system.

All changes in detail:

New Save System

With update 04, manual saving has found its way into Bounty Train. No more moving files around. We know how annoying that was. Now you have complete control and can save the game whenever you want. You can also create various save games. We still consider using the old system for runs on higher difficulty, but this decision is still pending and we’ll definitely wait for your feedback on this.

Day/Night Cycle

Areas can now be accessed during day or nighttime. We plan on extending on this feature in the near future. We’ll implement day and night-dependent missions, for example, as well as other alternative options matching this theme.

Economy Adjustments

Right now, we’re not too happy with the in-game economy and thus we tweaked the price development a little. Additionally, we introduced some new goods which should be worthwhile alternatives to the present goods and encounters. In the long run, we want to have goods in the game you can process further to specialize certain areas even more and provide more in-game options for players.

New Events

One issue of the last version was the frequency of enemy encounters and subsequent combat. We want to mitigate this by implementing more events. Now, when you travel a track, you won’t just find the familiar factions, but you’ll also encounter new mini-events from time to time.

Character Adjustments

You can now switch the loadout of individual characters. You think Walter should be a grenadier? Well, you can give him grenades and let him wreak some havoc. Speaking of which, we also plan to add more shops to make respective gear more accessible. Aaand enemies will drop special items and weapons in the future.

Cabin Adjustments

One of our main goals is to provide you with the means to build your very own train that matches your playstyle. With the new system you’re no longer quite so restricted: you can customize cabins and have more control over expenses and weight of your train.We plan to unlock more custom options through shops and inventions.

Bugfixes

We could reproduce and resolve many of the issues you have submitted. For example, sudden, unexplainable vanishing of resources should no longer occur, wanted characters should appear properly and players shouldn’t get stuck in scenarios under certain circumstances anymore.


The Story:

Bounty Train takes place in the America of the 1860s, the player is the son of a Railroad Tycoon out to fulfil his dead father’s grand dream: an unbroken train line across America. But his former partners have other plans in store, and the building of the line becomes a desperate race to prevent a great evil.

The Game:

Bounty Train is a complex, tactically challenging game. The player has to keep many balls in the air — dealing with real time skirmishes with bandits, trading good for the best prices, resource management, train optimization and keeping the line (and train) in good repair. In addition, Bounty Train confronts the player with historical events, from the onset of the Civil War to the assassination of Abraham Lincoln — and depending on player choices and performance, the course of history may be changed.

Bounty Train borrows elements from many genres and uses them to build a greater whole, a new unique strategy game experience. A masterpiece for strategy fans everywhere.

Features:

  • A mix of strategy, simulation and rogue-like gameplay elements
  • Player gets to control a beautiful, historically accurate steam train
  • Manage your train and routes, protect your train and its cargo as you steam across the American frontier
  • The unique setting brings special challenges – defend your train against bandits, raiders and more
  • Running a train means hiring a good crew, and that crew includes gunslingers, snipers and other dangerous types
  • Player actions influence the course of history, reflected in the game by multiple endings
  • No two games are ever the same, how far will you get in building your rail empire?

The post QPAD MK-50 Mechanical Keyboard Review appeared first on Invision Community.

]]>
This is my first review for QPAD, and its for the QPAD MK-50 Mechanical Keyboard, one of there entry level gaming keyboards, so lets go over what this keyboard has, as its main features,

QPAD MK-50 Pro Gaming Mechanical Keyboard,

  • Cherry MX mechanical switch technology,
  • Full N-key roll over, via PS2,
  • 50 Million Key Stokes,
  • PS/2 or USB Connectors, both are included,
  • Media keys for volume control, play, pause and skip tracks,
  • 1.8 meter extra thick cable,
  • 4 extra orange key caps and key cap puller,
  • Keyboard Dimensions, 44,8 x 14,9 x 3,5 cm, (17,6 x 5,8 x 1,37 inch),
  • Wrist pad Dimensions, 44,8 x 6,6 x 1,7 cm, (17,6 x 2,48 x 0,66 inch),
  • Overall Weight, 1.27 Kg, (2.8 LBS),
  • 2 Year Warranty,
  • Laser engraved keycaps,

Now the RRP 79.90 Euro, for a mechanical keyboard, that’s cheap, so what has been compromised how have they managed to be create such a cheap and affordable mechanical keyboard?

Well, looking into a few things, the QPAD MK-50 is the little sister/brother of the MK-85, it’s pro gaming version and comes at a price of 149.90 euro.

Here are the features of the QPAD MK-85,

  • Cherry MX mechanical switch technology,
  • Full N-Key roll over via USB,
  • 50 Million Key strokes,
  • Individual LED backlight on every key for enhanced visuals,
  • Four levels of brigthness allow you to locate keys easily,
  • Gold plated USB connectors,
  • Media keys for volume control, play, pause and skip tracks,
  • Two high speed USB 2.0 ports,
  • 3.5mm headphone-out and microphone-in jacks,
  • 1.8 meter braided cables and key cap puller ,
  • Keyboard Dimensions, 44,8 x 14,9 x 3,5 cm (17,6 x 5,8 x 1,37 inch)
  • Wrist pad Dimensions 44,8 x 6,6 x 1,7 cm, (17,6 x 2,48 x 0,66 inch),
  • Overall Weight:1.27 Kg, (2.8 LBS),
  • 2 Year Warrenty,
  • Customizable profiles, programmable keys and macro recording,

 

1024x768-KeycapPuller 1024x768-feet 1024x768-Connectors

So what did they compromise? Well, gone are the LED backlighting, the etched keys, the two USB 2.0 Ports, and 3.5mm Headphone and Microphone jacks. So what is left, you guessed it, a basic, non glitzy keyboard.

Now I love keyboards that have LED’s, Macro Keys, mechanical, with added additions to suit, so the MK-85 would be right down my alley, but what if I was on a budget and wanted a keyboard that could last me a long time, and also look great, does the MK-50 pull this off?

Well, if I was to purchase this from a shop, the front of the box does look fantastic and showcases all the main features of this keyboard, there is just one issue, compatibility, Windows 2000, xp, vista and 7, nothing that says the keyboard would work with Windows 8 or windows 10. Not stating this on the front, could lead to lack of sales, for parents looking to purchase this as a gift, and have no idea that windows 10 and windows 8 allows for backwards compatibility for many programs and products.

1024x768-Overview-Wristpad

The back of the box is very minimal, lack lustre, again, though, it does stat all the main features, operating systems, contents, keyboard layout and switch type. On the side, you can see some of the small added additions, like the orange keys, height adjustment and palm rest.

So here I am, with a budget, mechanical keyboard, I am impressed, with what they have given us, ok, it’s not up to the standards of the MK-85, but what do you expect for the price? It’s a full size keyboard, with easy to use media keys, an option to use USB or PS/2 as main connection, it also has a palm rest, which is something you don’t see on many of the more expensive mechanical keyboards.

1024x768-MK50-Overview-right

The keyboard, sounds and feels like any other mechanical keyboard, regardless of the price you going to pay for it, so that’s great. The added palm rest as a much needed addition for gamers on the those long gaming sessions, this palm rest feels warm and smooth, a very well designed and thought out piece of equipment.

 

There are some issues though, when it comes to producing a cheaper keyboard, the etched keys, that allowed the light to come through are gone and in its place are long lasting painted on symbols, which over time will fade away. The downgrade has left the USB ports and both of the audio jacks have been capped over, but still have gaps where dust can enter through.

1024x768-MK50-Overview-behind

I would of loved to have some sort of LED lighting, even it is was just white, this would truly make this keyboard standout a little more. Having LED Lighting would also see an upgrade to the keys, as they would be laser etched and see through, so the light can shine through them, this would make the key very long lasting.

So, is the keyboard worth it? Will the keys last 50million clicks? Well,for the price, what you are getting, you cannot really complain, there is nothing this cheap and mechanical in the market currently, from what I have seen personally. I very much doubt all the keys will keep their symbols, for the full 50 million clicks, so you might see yourself replacing them or just living with blank keys.

1024x768-MK50-Overview-left

I do like the idea of having different colour keys, this allows you to easily find the keys you class as a priority, I set the four orange keys to WSAD, what else, I am a gamer, anything else would be, not so useful.

There is nothing really much to say about this keyboard, I covered everything, it works, its mechanical, its damn cheap and well worth it, if you are on a budget. For me though its lacks the glitz and its not something I would pick up, I would be saving for something a little more expansive.

1024x768-MK50-Closeup-Behind

I am scoring this keyboard 8/10, why? wel its lacks glitz, which i personally love, the USB and 3.5mm jack ports are still open to dust, and finally the key symbols might not last 50 million clicks. Though, those issues are mostly small, I feel the keyboard is also well worth the price for a mechanical gaming keyboard, add a little more work to the final product, and QPAD would have a winner.

Degica is pleased to announce they’ve teamed up with Studio Saizensen to bring the beloved physics-based puzzle/platformers of the Umihara Kawase Trilogy back to Steam, available now! (http://store.steampowered.com/sub/85452/)

Fans asked, and we’ve delivered! Umihara Kawase Trilogy’s wonderfully bizarre fishing/grappling-hook platforming was missing from Steam… and now it’s back! For those not in the know, Umihara Kawase Trilogy features Umihara Kawase, Umihara Kawase Shun Steam Edition, and Sayonara Umihara Kawase. These three puzzle/platformer games tell the tale of a girl named Umihara Kawase who uses a fishing hook as a grappling hook. You’ll need quick reflexes to swing your way through the branching surreal environments. Use your brains to figure out the best way through. They say fish is brain food. You’re going to need it!

Face fish-like enemies, conveyor belts, spikes, watery pits, time travel and more. Collect items, and find your way to the end of each level. The deeper into this dream-like world that you venture, the more challenging the solutions and the greater the time pressure becomes. Along the way, look out for shortcuts and secret exits, and unlock bonus levels.

The elasticity of Umihara’s fishing line sets the Umihara Kawase Trilogy apart from other games, giving unprecedented levels of mobility and discovery. Tightening the line or giving lots of slack can be the difference between success or failure. The elastic nature of the fishing line allows the player to stretch down to otherwise unreachable areas or be catapulted upwards.

The Trilogy Features:

  • Physics-based puzzle/platforming that challenges your reflexes and brainpower
  • Extreme elastic fishing-line physics give you advanced control
  • Many stages with branching paths across three complete games
  • Steam Workshop support in all three games for sharing replays
  • Four playable characters (in Sayonara Umihara Kawase)
  • Face giant, aquatic bosses like a tadpole, a seahorse, and more
  • Steam Achievements, Trading Cards, Leaderboards, and Cloud Saving
  • Full Steam controller support for all three games (optional)

Through layers of corporate greed and urban strife, you will contend with dangerous enemies, uncover a deadly conspiracy, and cement your reputation as a Prime Runner… assuming that you survive, of course.

About Shadowrun: Hong Kong

HONG KONG. A stable and prosperous port of call in a sea of chaos, warfare, and political turmoil. The Hong Kong Free Enterprise Zone is a land of contradictions – it is one of the most successful centers of business in the Sixth World, and home to one of the world’s most dangerous sprawl sites. A land of bright lights, gleaming towers, and restless spirits where life is cheap and everything is for sale.

Shadowrun: Hong Kong is the third standalone game in Harebrained Schemes’ critically-acclaimed Shadowrun cRPG series. Experience the most impressive Shadowrun RPG yet with an all new crew, expanded magic and cyberware, a completely revamped Matrix, an upgraded release of the Shadowrun Editor, and much more!

Key Features

  • A Classic, Story-Driven RPG:Shadowrun: Hong Kong hearkens back to the golden age of computer RPG’s with a novel-like, non-linear narrative full of sharp prose and deep character development.
  • A One-of-a-Kind Cyberpunk Setting: Experience the unique tech-meets-magic dystopian future of Shadowrun, a fan-favorite game for over 25 years. Shadowrun: Hong Kong is a perfect entry point to the setting for those with no prior Shadowrun experience, while providing plenty of classic Shadowrun characters and tech for veteran players to sink their teeth into.
  • Command Your Team: Just like Shadowrun: Dragonfall, Shadowrun: Hong Kong features a crew of flawed, dangerous runners with backstories that could only be possible in the tech-meets-magic Shadowrun setting. The members of your team are designed to play contrasting roles during missions, and each has a distinct set of skills, abilities, strengths, and weaknesses. Each team member also has challenges to face in their own lives, which you can choose to brush aside or play an important part in.
  • Gripping, Turn-Based Tactical Combat: When you’re running in the shadows, every turn matters. Choose your actions wisely – move to better cover, charge into melee, or lob a fireball into a crowd of enemies. With over 200 weapons and spells at your disposal, every turn is filled with meaningful choices.
  • Skill-Based Character Progression: Choose a starting character archetype and build from there! Street Samurai and Physical Adepts use advanced combat skills to dominate the battlefield, Shamans and Mages summon powerful allies and cast deadly spells, while Riggers and Deckers provide critical technological support, projecting their consciousness directly into drones and computer systems. Shadowrun: Hong Kong’s classless skill system allows you to grow your character in any direction you choose.

NIS America is excited to announce that The Legend of Legacy is now available across retailers in Europe! Developed by a core group of legendary developers, this classic turn-based RPG makes its way to Nintendo 3DS™ as both a physical and digital release.

About the game:

In The Legend of Legacy, seven adventurers — Liber, Meurs, Owen, Bianca, Garnet, Eloise, and Filmia — arrive on the mysterious island of Avalon to pursue their own agenda as explorers. They team up with two of the other adventurers to achieve their objectives — be it exploring the island for treasure, looking for the “god” on the island, or recovering lost memories. But things change when they discover a singing stone that causes the party to see phantasms of Avalon’s forgotten history.

In addition to exploring the island of Avalon, Combat will offer plenty of challenges in The Legend of Legacy. Combat is turn-based, but players will have the option to create their own formations tailored to their party of three, meaning each party member can be put into a different combat role (defending, attacking, supporting, etc.) at any given time. Formations can be saved and changed between turns as well, giving players plenty of options to maximize their strategies.

Key Features:

  • Seven Unique Perspectives – Each character in The Legend of Legacy has their own motivation for exploring Avalon, and their individual conclusion at the story’s resolution. Play through as each character to see them all!
  • Combats Gets Classless – Managing formations to instruct specific combat roles instead of fixed classes adds a different level of challenge for battle enthusiasts.
  • Legendary Development – Illustrator Tomomi Kobayashi (SaGa series), renowned composer Masashi Hamauzu (SaGa, Final Fantasy XIII), writer Masato Kato (Chrono Trigger), game designer Kyoji Koizumi (SaGa series), and Masataka Matsuura (999: 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors) all come together to create this brand new experience.
  • Balance for the West – Based on user feedback following the Japanese release, several gameplay adjustments were made to enhance the gameplay. More details to come later!
