Escalation: Aggressors, an early access prologue!

Icebreaker Interactive today announced the launch date for Escalation: Aggressors, an early access prologue to the premium title that is in development.

Developed by Icebreaker Interactive and Hubert Dzikuć, the real-time deck building strategy game is coming to Steam, Google Play and the App Store on December 2, 2019.


Escalation: Aggressors is a real-time deck building strategy game with fast-paced game-play. Players have lots of tactical abilities and units to choose from. It takes place in the 80's, the decade that lends it the inspiration for the visuals, music, and its cold war era military hardware. Each unit has different load-outs and capabilities players can choose from.

The goal is to protect your commanding unit and take out the enemy commander unit (HQ). It’s a great throwback to the retro aesthetic, both the visuals and audio, with arcade graphics, a sweet synth wave soundtrack, and excellent sound design (Headphones recommended).


The early access prologue is a taste of what is to come, with tutorial missions and campaign missions that pits 80’s NATO against the Soviet Union. Even the most tactical minded player must consider gains versus losses in all-out warfare. Navy, Army and Airforce duke it out, all at the same time.

WarpThrough, a fast paced platformer releases December 10th!

After one and a half years of working on it, Roofkat will be releasing their debut title WarpThrough on Steam this December.
Ramon Huiskamp: As the solo developer of this game, I’m sure you’ll understand I am both thrilled and terrified at the same time!

WarpThrough is a fast action-platformer with unique arcade-inspired gameplay and an interesting twist to combat: You have to stop moving before you can attack. As you jump from portal to portal, warping through different dimensions, you will have to find a balance between keeping the ever-appearing monsters in check and getting to that next portal. How many dimensions can you survive?

Gameplay is WarpThrough’s core, but it’s cast of characters are not just there for show! In the story mode you’ll get to know Charlotte, the hot-headed teen able to take out monsters with fiery punches,
as well as her dad Manor, a scientist creating Warpholes and leaving electrical traps to fend off enemies. Along with them are Three, an excited friend of Charlotte who’s laser gun could be really useful in battle, if only he knew how to aim, and Ebbie, who comes along as her dog is eager to go for a walk in alternate dimensions. In this short story mode you’ll get to unlock new levels, discover how to play with all of the characters, and try putting a stop to the monsters that invaded your home!

It’s been an adventure creating WarpThrough by myself throughout the last years, and I’m extremely proud of how everything has come together so far. I can’t wait to see what people think of WarpThrough’s unique gameplay!
WarpThrough launches on PC via Steam on December 10th, with more platforms following later.

Let's play the Alpha of GTFO!

GTFO is a coop survival horror game and a very remarkable fact is that this project is entirely self funded. And I, Michael "Magic Mike" Dumee are looking forward to play this game for a while now. So, Luckily I could participate in the Alpha last weekend. Let me tell you all about it!


GTFO is short for Get The Fuck Out and that is basically the main goal of the game, I couldn't have said it better myself. Together with four other people you need to make your way through the level filled with aliens. You might think that running into the action all guns blazing is fun, but I can tell you, you won't survive it. Ammo is something to cherish and use sparingly. The good news is: the aliens are blind. So the sneaky and stealthy approach is the way to go, if you wish to live a long and happy life. But beware, they are not deaf!


To be honest, the fact that you need to think twice before using your ammo, was super fun! It's cool to play a coop game where the silent and stealth approach is the best choice. And you're not totally helpless. Throughout the levels there will be boxes for you to loot, so you might get your hands on medkits, ammo boxes, flashlights and other needful things, when battling, or better said, avoiding aliens.

In terms of graphic GTFO looks great. It will not blow you away or something, but it's very good and the good news is you don't an almighty, super expensive PC to play this game.

I had a blast playing this GTFO Alpha and I can't wait for the full game to release!
