PQube Games Preview
Similar to the previous years, PQube once again showed off some of their upcoming games, a few of them I want to showcase and tell you exactly why they seem so promisingly fun.
First up, Raging Loop, a visual novel basically about the popular group game Werewolf everyone probably player once in their life. We’re playing as someone part of a little secluded village Yasumizu, where one villager dies every night, however, our protagonist also has the power to remember his past lives, enabling him and us to learn from his mistakes. Every night we can choose to do different things, inspect other houses and so on, however, every wrong choice may result in our death.
Yet those deaths also grant us the knowledge what to do and what not, as well as so-called keys, with which we can unlock new options, letting the story progress into a different direction. Though all this is pretty linear, so failing is both a part of the adventure and also a must. Still, Raging Loop sounds like the biggest gamification of this game I’ve seen so far, along its neat artstyle and interesting loop mechanic, it’s certainly an intriguing title.
Raging Loop will release 2019 for PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC
In the middle, I got to play a bit of the soon releasing Dusk Diver, an action RPG set and developed in Taiwan, aiming to mix the typical anime style with a more unique setting and designs, while still building heavily on said Japanese idol. Honestly, it sounds like a weird mix but in
What surprised me the most though, is the really fluid
Duskdiver will release for PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC starting on 24th October
Last but not least, probably the most interesting and weirdest title of the bunch: Ciel Fledge, a game about raising your own daughter. As intriguing as it sounds though, as hard it is to explain and not much could be shown off in a short time span either, so let me try to summarize what you should expect in this truly unique title. In a dystopian world, you suddenly have to take care of a child, keeping it fed, educated and not leading it on the wrong path or well… to do just the opposite. After the moment you get the little Ciel you can practically underfeed her, let her suck in school or whatever, the game has a variety of endings and possible evolutions of her to compensate for a bad upbringing while it never punishes you.
Gameplay-wise, Ciel Fledge is similar to a planning simulator. You will have to make plans for Ciel’s food, school, week activities
Ciel Fledge will release 2019 for PC, Nintendo Switch and PS4
