Berlin, Germany / Giebelstadt, Germany, August 13th, 2020: Hitler is chancellor and the National Socialists party has taken control of Germany. Experience the struggle of everyday people in their fight against a cruel and unjust regime with only the means they have at their disposal.
All over Germany, small groups of friends and family are trying to oppose the tyranny of the Nazis. Find like-minded companions, form a resistance group, and plan your actions. Make decisions that affect not only yourself but also the lives of the strangers you meet and the safety of your group. Risk losing everything, your freedom, your loved ones, or even your life. Will you put yourself in harm's way to protect the innocent? Will you break during the Gestapo interrogation? Will you lead your fellow resistance fighters Through the Darkest of Times?
Through the Darkest of Times creates a sombre mood. You’ll find out more and more about the cruelty, happening around your group. People disapear without a trace, taken by the official police, sometimes found dead shortly after. There are no good or bad decisions, often you’ll have to choose the lesser of two evils and take the consequences.
Divided into 4 Chapters, the game follows the actual events of the Third Reich era. You will always feel the pressure. Have you been watched during your last operation? Can you really trust that new member of your group? Did you do enough to help that family the other day? Dark times need people with the heads held high, no matter what comes.
Through the Darkest of Times is available for $14.99 / € 14,99 / £ 13,49 on Playstation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
About Through the Darkest of Times:
Through the Darkest of Times is a historical resistance strategy game. Its focus lies on conveying the grim atmosphere of the period and the very real struggles of average people living in the 3rd Reich. Historical accuracy means that a small group of resistance fighters will not change the outcome of the war, nor will they prevent all of the Nazi’s atrocities, but they will certainly do everything in their power to save as many lives as they can and inhibit the fascist system as best they can.

So what happened to the world? Why was everything destroyed? At first, these questions are left unanswered — but as you complete levels and the game grows more challenging, the history of the world begins to be revealed.
All in! Games has announced that Metamorphosis is now available on PC and consoles. The narrative adventure inspired by Kafka’s curious imagination is now available on PC (Steam and GOG), Nintendo Switch, Xbox One (all with a 10% discount until August 19), and on PlayStation 4.
Metamorphosis’ unique point of view, resulting from the player being the size of a bug required a new approach to level-building and player guidance, as well as locomotion. As the Ovid Team explains:
“We absolutely wanted to emphasise the feeling of being a bug. A lot of things were tried unsuccessfully. We finally managed to set the scale and guidance in a way that expressed the ‘buggy’ feeling of the movement. We are very proud of the locomotion we ended up with. But what we are most proud of is the consistency of the art, gameplay, and story that we maintained. Such a unique combination of these elements is found nowhere else.”
Metamorphosis lets players experience:
A bug's perspective in first person - see the world in a whole new way
Challenging environmental puzzles - do parkour, climb walls, search for clues, and overcome obstacles
Unique movement mechanics - make full use of your tiny body and sticky limbs
A story inspired by Kafka’s imagination - meet eccentric characters in a hand-painted world as you journey through surrealist landscapes towards The Tower
56-year-old Kanehisa Satoh has been arrested after getting into a spat with his 55-year-old friend over Pokémon GO.
The two trainers actually met several years ago while playing Pokemon GO, and unfortunately, their fondness for the game led them to quite the fight.
The two got into an argument over at Gym in Pokemon GO, with Satoah saying, “I got pissed because he (his friend) had gone ahead and took my encampment.” This fight led to Satoh grabbing his friend by the chest, and then kicking his driver's side mirror. The cops were called, and Satoh was subsequently arrested for assault and property damage.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is over 3 years old now, but people are still diving deep into the game to find new areas, discover glitches, push for speedrunning records, and more. Then there's a group of players who spend their time cooking up brand-new content for the game. That's exactly what you'll see in the video above.
Modder and YouTube user Waikuteru decided to use his tech savvy to create a Mario Kart experience within The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Waikuteru transported Mario Kart Wii's Luigi Circuit into Zelda: Breath of the Wild, giving Link something brand-new to experience with his fancy motorcycle. How do modders even come up with this stuff?!
Don't have the time to build the LEGO NES yourself, or perhaps you couldn't track one down before it sold out? Why not enjoy the next best thing by watching the timelaspe video above!
It's hard to think of a more iconic intro to a show than The Simpsons, especially when you consider how long the program's been running. The intro itself has seen numerous changes over the years, including hundreds of new couch gags. Now we can add one more unofficial gag to the last, thanks to the video above.
An amazing fan-edit takes the world of Animal Crossing: Now Horizons and mashes it up with The Simpsons, and it's clear a ridiculous amount of time went into this. Some of the stuff just isn't possible to recreate in-game, but the sheer amount of content that's spot-on is staggering. Time very well spent, I'd say!
