Big Bucket Software Working on a New Platforming Game

The Incident is a mobile game starring Frank, an unfortunate fellow who must scramble to the top of the debris constantly raining down on him. Frank seemingly came through that event stronger than ever, because now he’s starring in his own platforming game. The title is very early in development, and is yet unnamed aside from a code name (BB3). You can take a look at a brief video of the game’s progress over at Big Bucket Software’s blog.

Is a New Five Nights at Freddy’s Game Coming?

When Five Nights at Freddy’s 3 was released, developer Scott Cawthon put an image of the titular Freddy’s hat on his page, signifying, perhaps, that the bear was done. But the hat’s since gone missing from Cawthon’s page, and it’s enough to make people believe a new game might be on the way. Or maybe it’s a promotion for the upcoming movie. We’ll certainly find out in the coming days. Or weeks. Or months.

The Full Version of Hakuoki Costs $28

Here’s a price point you don’t see every day on the App Store: $28. That’s the price of the full visual novel Hakuoki, an English localization of a PSP game. Alternately, you can download the game’s first chapter for free and buy each of the 14 additional chapters one at a time for $3 a pop. From VentureBeat:

Meanwhile, these visual novels, which feature anime-style art and branching storylines, are hugely popular in Japan. As an example, Hakuoki is a major series in Japan, with releases on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 2, PSP, Nintendo DS and 3DS. It was even adapted for television animation. Generally, titles from the choose your own adventure-style genre rarely make it to Western shores, but when they do, they usually land on handheld game systems such as the PlayStation Vita and Nintendo 3DS. A mobile release is a rare treat for Western fans.

Forsaken World Coming to Mobile Soon

Free-to-play PC MMORPG Forsaken World is getting a mobile version sometime in the future. Aside from a teaser trailer, there’s little information on this adaptation. The game’s site does promise great-looking 3D graphics, PvP, and exotic mounts (every MMORPG needs them), so we can count on that much. We’ll have more information as it becomes available.

Heroes and Castles 2 Coming May 14

Heroes and Castles 2 is an interesting mash-up between 3D action and tower defense. The first game was quite decent, and the follow-up looks pretty good, too. You’ll be able to judge for yourself when the game comes to iOS on May 14.

Sporting a single-player campaign, a co-op multiplayer mode, and PVP battles, Heroes and Castles 2 offers players many ways to take their armies into battle whether that be on their own, with a friend, or against one.

Hearthstone’s third Blackrock Mountain wing, Blackrock Spire, is now live

Lately it seems like Hearthstone posts just don’t stop coming. That’s because a lot is going on with this fantastic card battling game lately, and if you’re not playing it, you should probably change that ASAP. The third section of the Blackrock Mountain DLC has gone live. VentureBeat reports:

This gives you three new bosses to fight against as part of the continuing solo adventure. This is just one of the ways that Blizzard is keeping fans of its first free-to-play and mobile game coming back for more, and it’s working as Hearthstone is one of the top-grossing apps on iOS and Android. The developer is selling this new episode for $7, but you can buy the entirety of Blackrock Mountain for $25 — that will save you a few bucks over purchasing each wing separately.
