Disintegration Games Unveils 'Pilgrim' for Wii U



Nexis Games have teamed up with Disintegration Games to unveil a new title coming to the Wii U called "Pilgrim". Below is an exerpt from the article that details what the game is about.

Pilgrim is a clever game coming to Nintendo Wii U that is unlike anything coming to the system. Nexis Community was quick to reach out to the studio behind it. A game about choices, consequence, and time. Pilgrim takes place over a 100 year period as you play out the lives of multiple characters related to another through lineage. The main objective is to successfully pave the way for future generations in a family by making the most out of your life today to a degree of lasting effect. Time isn’t always on your side however. Pilgrim on Wii U begins its adventure opening to Andrew Stewart a young Scottish immigrant being motivated by his parents to sail over seas to America in order to thrive. Once stateside, Andrew can find employment, mature into an adult and fall in love leading into a family before growing old and passing away. The main objective is to mature and pass your life experiences to your kin and live long enough to make a difference in their lives as they may learn and carry after you have passed on. The main antagonist fighting your chances of success is only time.

Pilgrim has various RPG elements that create a solid foundation holding up its unique gameplay. As players level up, they grow in age and increase max health. After a certain level your health caps. The more you increase in age afterwards the lower max health decreases leading to only one inevitability. Death. While growing up is a key objective element in Pilgrim systematically accomplishing goals ideally within key moments before players let opportunities slip away. it will also increasingly work against players challenging them to make the right decisions under multiple circumstances across various amounts of time. Levels equate to generations, and players have a bucket list of objectives to complete in a fixed amount of years, however some generations are allotted different amounts of time. One generation could expect a lifespan of 30 years and another only 15 before natural death sets in. It all depends on the player. Its an interesting balance that adds a deal of strategy and depth enticing multiple ways to experience Pilgrim encouraging players to return to the experience over and over.

Players will combat dangers that impede your ability to survive forcing you to make decisions in the game to better protect your safety but not in traditional formats you might come to expect. In Pilgrim players suffer from health conditions such as heart disease and polio but such inflictions can be prevented if players are properly vaccinated or actively maintain healthy eating habits. Interestingly there is no map directing players and Pilgrim doesn’t have a health bar displayed making things even more challenging forcing players to rely on visual clues and audible expressions to unlock their health status or preserve it by keeping an ear out avoiding a car coming from around corners dangerously.

GoNintendo 'End of Day' thought - Fantasy Life review



Got a review for you guys and gals this morning. I'll have another review later this week, but let's take things one step at a time! You have a look at this and I'll focus on getting some rest! See you in a few, short hours.




At first, it seemed like Fantasy Life was never going to get a stateside release. Things looked even worse when Japan got an updated version of Fantasy Life, and still there was no mention of localization. Thankfully Level-5 and Nintendo were just taking their sweet time with the game. Fantasy Life has now arrived on American shores and it's jam-packed with content for you to enjoy. Just be ready to have a ton of time to really sink your teeth into all this adventure has to offer.
