After a long wait, King Arthur's Gold makes it to Steam. Congrats and hats off to Transhuman Design, the development house behind this awesome game. Hopefully this brings a huge new audience to the magic of King Arthur's Gold.
After remembering that it was on its way to Steam this month, I went to go request King Arthur's Gold Steam keys from the official King Arthur's Gold website but was turned away at the door. After a bit of digging around on the blog (side note: the release notes should really be separated from the news!)I found this blog post from a couple weeks back saying that it had been delayed. The second target of last week was also missed. Hopefully it's not a bad sign and we'll still see King Arthur's Gold on Steam!
Gone Home is a fantastic adventure game. It's not difficult or full of mind-bending puzzles (though there are a few simpler ones littered throughout), but instead it's more a narrative something in between Myst and Dear Esther.
The production quality, voice acting, music, writing, attention to detail, graphics, and storyline are all top-class. This game will win awards.
The story tells of a young woman, Katie, who you take the part of. She is arriving home from a year abroad, travelling through Europe. Instead of coming home to a full and welcoming house, she arrives to one that is empty and full of questions. Where is everyone? Why are they missing? What happened in your absense?
Most excellent news, sire! King Arthur's Gold is almost upon Steam. Mark thy calendar: this game will launch arounde the 13th of October in the year of our lord, twenty-thirteen. If one is wondering: why, what is this "King Arthur's Gold" and why should I carest? If thee likes 2D multiplayer action games in the same manner of classics such as Terraria or Towerfall, thy heart shall be filled with desire for King Arthur's Gold.
Edge of Space, the stylistic indie 2D adventure worldbuilder is teaming up with the team from Terraria to include the Omegatron from Terraria as a big boss, along with a few easter eggs and other goodies in a free update releasing soon.
