EnjoyUp Games announce US release date for "Abyss" on WiiU

Earth, 3024.

Natural resources are scarce and the survival of the human race is in danger. Desperate to find new energy resources, the ASAN creates Nep2no: a biomechanical robot capable of withstanding extreme depths in the hope of finding new energy sources.

After many years of exploration, a new energy source is found: codenamed 'Gaia'.

Your mission will be to find the 'Gaia' energy stones by exploring the depths. To do so, you must control Nep2no by counteracting gravity and the surrounding darkness with the aid of a light – however, that light goes out little by little...

New features for WiiU:

- 12 Original missions plus 8 in Dark mode.
- Competitive two-player mode.
- New Graphic Effects and remixed Music.
- TV- Off Mode



Coming to #WiiU on 1st May 2014.

PRISONSCAPE - a pixelated prison adventure

Prisonscape is an adventure/roleplaying game about the harsh and brutal life in prison, made for PC, Mac, and Linux.  It's currently being Kickstarted (18 days to go, just over 20% of their funding total already achieved, at time of posting this.)

The game was heavily inspired by two HBO classics, The Wire and Oz and the art style inspiration was pulled from SNES classics such as Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy 6.

Chris Avellone (Fallout 2, Planescape: Torment) and John Romero (Doom 1 & 2) both have complimented our game and also backed the Kickstarter.  (When they say it's brutal, they're not kidding... which is why I haven't put the video directly on the blog.  If you, like me, have an aversion to gore, you may want to give it a miss.  Bearing in mind the creators of the above games, that may give you an idea about whether you're going to like this one.  The game features lovely pixel art as you can see in the gif below, but also seems to feature rather a lot of pixelated blood.)
