TGS 2018: Shaun's Thoughts on the Show

4 monthes ago   |   By Touch Arcade

What a difference one year makes. Last year, the Tokyo Game Show was facing declining attendance and a general sort of aimless feeling as consumer VR failed to catch on the way some companies had clearly hoped for. Fast forward to this year, and we've got a vibrant Tokyo Game Show filled with amazing titles and a new attendance record, with 298,690 people visiting over the course of the four-day event. Mobile games made for just about 30% of the games on display, demonstrating a sort of stability in the overall gaming picture.
Of course, with a modest bump in the number of iOS games shown...

TGS 2018: Hands-On with ‘Star Diffusion', a Top-Down Sci-Fi Survival Horror Game

TGS 2018: Hands-On with ‘Star Diffusion', a Top-Down Sci-Fi Survival Horror Game

4 monthes ago   |   By Touch Arcade

Horror and science-fiction go together like peanut butter and bananas, something that Hollywood has proven time and time again, and that the game industry proved with Dead Space but then forgot about because there apparently wasn't enough bang-bang-shootins in it. Well, developer Celad remembers, and they're proving it with their upcoming title Star Diffusion. It's a top-down survival horror game, and while you may wonder if it can bring the scares with that kind of bird's eye view, just put on your head phones and keep a spare change of shorts nearby in case of emergency.

TGS 2018: Hands-On with ‘Fiend Legion', a Soon-to-Launch Hybrid of Card Game and Turn-Based Strategy

4 monthes ago   |   By Touch Arcade

It sure wasn't hard to find mobile card games at this year's Tokyo Game Show, friends. Slightly more difficult was finding one that varied all that much from the template laid down by Blizzard's Hearthstone. Which is not to say that the more familiar ones were bad or anything, as some of them had some interesting rules of their own and such, but it does mean that when I came across one that did something really different, it stood out quite well. Spree Entertainment's Fiend Legion was one such effort, and it's made all the sweeter by the fact that the game should be out relatively...

TGS 2018: Hands-On with ‘RPG Time', a Visually Impressive RPG Adventure

TGS 2018: Hands-On with ‘RPG Time', a Visually Impressive RPG Adventure

4 monthes ago   |   By Touch Arcade

Games don't need a “wow" moment to be good, but it never hurts to have one. RPG Time , an upcoming adventure game from Japanese independent developer Deskworks, hit me with a few of said moments within a couple of minutes of starting the game. The premise sees you playing as an elementary school kid whose friend has designed an RPG in his notebook. He wants you to try out his creation, however rough it may be. This was easily one of the more impressive and interesting mobile games on display at the Tokyo Game Show, even if it is far from being finished.

TGS 2018: Hands-On with ‘Causa: Voices of the Dusk', a Card Game with Great Artwork

4 monthes ago   |   By Touch Arcade

I know it's not always fair to a game to make comparisons to other popular games, and it's probably especially so in the genre of card games, where there are really only so many ways to present the concept in video game form. That said, the first thing I thought of when I saw Causa: Voices of the Dusk from Niebla Games was how much it looked like Hearthstone from a distance. Once I actually played the game and learned about its unique rules, I found it to be an enjoyable card game all on its own. That's the whole first impressions thing for you.
In terms of the broad strokes, this isn't...

TGS 2018: Hands-On with ‘Kamiori', a Puzzle-Platformer About Folding Paper

TGS 2018: Hands-On with ‘Kamiori', a Puzzle-Platformer About Folding Paper

4 monthes ago   |   By Touch Arcade

While most of the games on the floor of the Tokyo Game Show are yet to release, others are just making their debuts in Japan or are simply trying to get a little extra publicity. In a way, it's a nice second chance to catch things that may have slipped through the cracks before. Such is the case with Kamiori , which actually hit the App Store a couple of months ago in the West. It's a cool game that I had somehow missed out on, so I'm glad it was brought to my attention via this showing.
At its core, Kamiori is a puzzle-platformer that leans on one main gimmick: folding paper. You need to...

TGS 2018: Indie Corner Wrap-Up

4 monthes ago   |   By Touch Arcade

As is ever the case, mobile games could be found all over the massive Makuhari Messe exhibition center during Tokyo Game Show. Major multi-platform publishers had their mobile offerings housed in their booths, mid-sized mobile publishers had their own somewhat-ornate sections, and the indie mobile developers were, for the most part, occupying the Indie Games section found in Hall 9 of the complex, away from the noisy bustle of the main areas. Once again, they shared their space with the merchandise corner, the eSports stage, and the rapidly-expanding VR games area.
This year saw one big...

TGS 2018: Hands-On with ‘Vulcan 3055', a Stylish 2D Action Game

4 monthes ago   |   By Touch Arcade

One of the tough things about trying out games at a show like the Tokyo Game Show is attempting to gauge just how unfinished they are, and how likely they are to shore up their faults before release. Vulcan 3055 from Kulasta grabbed my attention with its lush visuals that look like something out of a lost SEGA Saturn game. While it's not completely visually consistent, the game just has a really neat, unique look to it. Playing it, however, proves to be a rougher experience, and I'm not sure if that's down to the game being incomplete or if that's just how it's going to be.
Vulcan 3055 is...

TGS 2018: Hands-On with ‘Devil Stone', a New Offline, Traditional, JRPG-Style Game

4 monthes ago   |   By Touch Arcade

Friends, with the state of the market being what it is on mobile, I no longer even carry the slightest hope of running into a new paid offline RPG anymore at Tokyo Game Show, particularly from independent developers. So imagine my surprise when I came across Devil Stone , an upcoming RPG from Hong Kong-based developer Simplist Limited. It's as traditional as it gets, with turn-based battles, a party of characters that assemble of the course of the game, and a paid upfront model that is sure to please anyone who is getting a little burnt out on free-to-play social RPGs.
The basic set-up...

TGS 2018: Hands-On with ‘Hazardous Journey', a Game About Taking a Cat for a Walk

4 monthes ago   |   By Touch Arcade

Glaciwaker Entertainment usually has one or two interesting titles to show off at Tokyo Game Show, and this year they had a really cute one on display. Titled Hazardous Journey , it's a game where you have to lead a little kitty cat through increasingly dangerous terrain. It mostly uses an isometric viewpoint not unlike that seen in Monument Valley , but rather than solving somewhat chill spatial puzzles, you're instead trying to guide your cat around tricky timed obstacles.
The graphics in Hazardous Journey are quite frankly gorgeous. The level the developer was showing off at Tokyo Game...
