Sailaway Lets You Explore The World's Oceans In Real Time, Which Is More Fun Than It Sounds

As I’ve said on this site before, I used to live on a boat, but it wasn’t a sailboat. Playing Sailaway, a sailing simulator that came out on Steam early access last week, I’m learning what it could have been like if we’d had sails: bigger waves, the same absurd amount of ropes, and a lot of new challenges. Advertisement The coolest part of Sailaway is that it pulls real-time data for weather, waves, and wind, and boats move in real time. According to the website, a trip across its virtual Pacific would take months, just like in real life. That’s months of real-time ropes, pulleys, and sail sizes. Look at all this stuff: Nice. That not even all the stuff! The tutorial is somewhat clunky and text-based, so I’ll admit to finding it all a bit much for a sailing noob. There are challenges that function as extended tutorials, as well as a range of difficulty options that influence the detail of the simulation. I’ve tinkered around with one of the lower difficulties and have had fun changing the position and size of the sails to see the READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!

Quote Is An Action RPG That Takes Aim At Books

Quote is a game about eradicating knowledge. Specifically the knowledge locked away inside books. Why bother re-writing history when you can just destroy it instead? Advertisement In Quote you play as a young girl named Novella. She’s the priestess for Bliss, the god of ignorance. In practice, this means exploring different towns and dungeons in search of books that can be fed to a gnarly looking nightmare creature whose Lovecraftian tentacle mouth will swallow them whole. At every turn the conventional nodes in an action RPG game are augmented by a richly voiced narrator and a painterly storybook-style presentation. The result at times feels like a blend of Supergiant Games’ Bastion and the vaguely macabre children’s cartoon Sarah and Duck. “I’m especially proud of how we’ve managed to merge the visuals and narrative to create the feeling of being truly immersed whilst exploring,” said Robin Lacey, the game’s designer. The game’s two speakers are Bliss, whose raspy and insecure tone Lacey liken’s to Gary Oldman in the Firth Element. With the narrator on the other hand, he says the aim was for someone soft spoken but self assured in the vein of Jeremy Irons. Novella, on the other hand, is…
