All Articles: Tooth and Tail

Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana, Dishonored: Death of the Outsider, Tooth and Tail, more added to PS Store

Welcome to Wednesday… and it’s time for another update to the PlayStation Store.

This week, PS4 owners will be able to download Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana, the latest RPG in the long-running series, as well as Bethesda’s Dishonored: Death of the Outsider (a spinoff starring Rosario Dawson), Pocketwatch’s Tooth and Tail (an animal kingdom RTS), and a quartet of sports games (NASCAR Heat 2, NBA Live 18, NHL 18, and Pro Evolution Soccer 2018). Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 is also available for the PS3, and Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana can also be found on the Vita.

You can learn more about this week’s additions to the PlayStation Store after the break. (more…)

Tooth and Tail will be released for PC, PS4 on September 12

Pocketwatch Games has announced that Tooth and Tail, their real-time strategy game designed specifically for controllers, will be available for the PC and PS4 on September 12.

Tooth and Tail features a society of anthropomorphic animals that regularly compete in “The Harvest,” a competition to decide who will be the ruling class… and who will be dinner. The game’s tiny characters are perfectly proportioned for the bite-sized nature of each procedurally-generated map, and each match can be completed in under 15 minutes. Creative Director Andy Schatz recently stopped by the PlayStation Blog to talk more about the game’s extensive Story Mode, as well as local and online multiplayer options for up to four players:

Explore the Warrens as the flagbearers of the four factions: the Longcoats, the Commonfolk, the KSR, and the Civilized. Each character’s campaign contains unique rules, settings, and strategies. And with procedurally generated maps, the Story Mode is endlessly replayable.

After you’ve gotten your feet wet in Story Mode (or sunk many hours into all four characters’ arcs), maybe you’ll have an appetite for multiplayer. Tooth and Tail’s multiplayer has been tested with a three-year long private alpha, which has spawned a fan-run tournament scene, called Clash of Comrades. We patch the game frequently with balance changes and new features, and we plan to do so after launch as well.

A new trailer for Tooth and Tail has been embedded above.

More than 80 games will be on display in the Indie Megabooth at PAX East 2017

PAX East 2017 will open its doors in exactly 336 hours, and the Indie Megabooth has finally announced which games it’ll have on display at the Boston-based convention this year.

Dozens upon dozens of indie titles will get a chance to shine in a couple of weeks, including some of our favorites from years past. We selected Vertex Pop’s Graceful Explosion Machine, Hypersect’s Inversus, and Pocketwatch’s Tooth & Tail for our Best of PAX East 2016 roundup and all of them will be on display in the Indie Megabooth this year. Refactor, an alumnus of our Best of PAX East 2014 roundup (when it was known as Tetropolis) has also earned a spot in the PAX East 2017 edition of the Indie Megabooth.

The Indie Megabooth continues to grow and change, and this year, in addition to the Minibooth area and the Tabletop area, it’ll also have a “Visual Novel Reading Room” within its carpeted confines for PAX East attendees.

You can find the full list of games set to be included in the Indie Megabooth at PAX East 2017 after the break. (more…)

The PAXpocalypse List: The Best of PAX East 2016

paxpocalypse-east-header

Believe it or not, we’re not living in a post-apocalyptic hellscape (depending on your political affiliation, insert your own Trump/Hillary joke here). But you’d never know it if all you had to go by was the 2016 PAX East show floor, which was overrun by dozens of titles that took place after the collapse of society… and a lot of them were pretty good.

But what if some disaster did befall the world and force PAX East attendees to forever wander the halls of the Boston Convention and Exhibition, feasting on whatever mac and cheese bowls or turkey legs they may find? That’s where Warp Zoned’s PAXpocalypse List comes in, because these are the games we’d keep playing if we could never venture outside again… (more…)

Dear Diary: Saturday and Sunday at PAX East 2016 I Played…

paxeast-deardiary-header

Another PAX East has come to an end, but Mike “Gabe” Krahulik, Jerry “Tycho” Holkins, and game developers from around the world will return to Boston next year for more shenanigans. In the meantime, I’ve got an overflowing notebook and thoughts on more than a dozen titles from the final days of the expo. (more…)
