A Grave Chase Update & Night Trap!

Just wanted to give all of you a quick update on Grave Chase. We now have everything working for the game on Steam, including over 50 achievement medals, unlockable trading cards, badges, and wallpapers. Still deciding on a release date, but suffice to say, I think releasing it this fall is the way to go with a Halloween game like this. I'm leaning towards sometime in September, but soon as I have an official release date, I'll be sure to announce it on here. I'm also working on another big game project that you're gonna love, but mum's the word on that one for now.

Grave Chase at SC3!

We also had our first public demo of Grave Chase at the recent SC3 arcade meet-up, and it was a blast watching the attendees play it! All the feedback on it was great, and I'm glad that everybody liked how challenging the game was, as we didn't want it to be a cakewalk. Yes indeed, the Groundskeeper and his graveyard minions claimed many lives that day. I'm also planning on having a playable Grave Chase demo at our San Diego Comic-Con booth in July, so if you're attending, you'll be one of the first to try it out!

And if you'd like to see some footage of the game in action, Phillip O'Riley was kind enough to film the fun happenings at SC3, and he had me demonstrate some of the gameplay in Grave Chase. You'll see it in the above video starting right around the 3-minute mark.

Night Trap is returning for a special 25th anniversary release!

In other gaming news, Night Trap, the infamous FMV game about a vampire slumber party, is returning to consoles for its 25th anniversary. It's definitely something I never expected to see happen, but I'm glad a new generation of gamers will get to experience this hilariously cheesy game. What's nice about this upcoming release is they actually re-captured all the original footage, as seen in the new trailer, so you'll be able to view it in all of its early 90s b-movie style glory. While you wait for the game to come out, check out our in-depth look at Night Trap here.

Hope you enjoyed the huge pictorial of Arcade Expo 2017 that I posted recently too. Be sure to check it out if you haven't already, because there were some incredibly rare games on display, including one that's been on my bucket list to play for ages!

Alrighty, that's all the news for now. More to come soon!

A game getting a higher-quality anniversary remake purely because it's famous for being overreacted to by idiots.. I am ever so proud.

Yeah while the footage is gloriously cheesy, the "game" (if you can call it that) has you acting as a security guard of sorts, monitoring all the various cameras and pushing a button when necessary, all while juggling all the other cameras. It is the definition of tedium.

I wonder if it would even be possible to get some kind of sequel. I mean we got that hilarious retro horror movie recently, the one released on the fake VHS. You could make a fantastic successor with modern tech that was a tad more fun to play and captured the old feel..

and it could turn out in the end, the villain is kidnapping the girls because he's a raving prude lunatic that wants to save everyone from the horribly immoral sight of girls in nightgowns.

I would much rather see some sequels to the American Laser Games (Maddog, The Last Bounty Hunter, ect...) because at least those games are still playable.

The next FMV game I'd like to see receiving an anniversary edition is Ripper, because you can never have too much Christopher Walken. ;)

Wasn't there a fmv game that was a ripoff of ghostbusters and you fought a giant spider?

For the life of me I can't remember the name.
