New Game Launch: "March of Industry: Very Capitalist Factory Simulator Entertainments"

SEATTLE, WA - October 7, 2015 - Archive Entertainment is excited to announce their new title, March of Industry, has just launched on Steam.

In March of Industry, players manage a weapons factory in a recently-capitalist, ex-Soviet country. Take the country's natural resources (copper, tin, vodka) and craft them together to create more advanced resources and finally weapons. Players can sell these weapons and use the proceeds to automate their crafting and mass-produce even more weapons.

As the player's factory expands, they can create better (and more outlandish) weapons. The 'Rocket-Propelled Katana Launcher' is both simple to make and reasonably profitable. If you're up for more of a challenge, try combining 'Vodka' and 'Exercise Machines' to create the smelly but deadly 'Vladimir Putin's Gym Shorts'. Or perhaps you prefer the terrifying but compact 'Inconveniently Small Dragons'?

March of Industry has been featured in several expos, including Tokyo Game Show 2015. Players can learn more about March of Industry via its Steam store page. The game runs on Windows, Mac, and Linux in seven languages. The game is a one time purchase of $9.99 minus a 15% off launch sale this week.

About Archive Entertainment:
Archive Entertainment's last title, 8BitMMO, has been downloaded by more than 800,000 registered users. The player community around it has created a game world larger than the combined landmass of the United Kingdom. 8BitMMO received high accolades, including winning the Seattle Independent Game Competition and at Tokyo Game Show's Sense of Wonder Night won the award for Best Technological Game.

Now Available - Salt & Pepper 2: A Surreal Salty Physics Game

Richardson, Texas - Appdore today is proud to announce the immediate release of Salt & Pepper 2: A Surreal Salty Physics Game, their simply beautiful physics game for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Salt & Pepper 2 features over 100 multistage levels. The levels in part 2 have a similar vibe as Salt & Pepper 1, each featuring a unique layout with multiple goals. In order to complete the level, freely draw paths that will lead the spices to their bowls while staying within the drawing level of that level.

There are more simple asymmetrical layouts this time around that may cause some anger, however since this free version doesn't have any freemium penalties and play timers, you will be free to retry as many times as necessary to complete a level. Just like Salt & Pepper 1, the salt will go into the white bowl and the pepper will go into the black bowl, simple and gradually challenging! To keep the pace faster, each bowl only needs about 10 grains of their respective spice to fill a bowl. There are still no specific paths for these levels as it doesn't involve a grid system. Your solution may or may not work for other players. The progression this time around is to be more of a fair challenge, new obstacles and annoyances will appear, however each stage is passable within 75 seconds.

Salt & Pepper 2: A Surreal Salty Physics Game features an optional donation/level pack called "Salt Divided!" that focuses on salt. This level pack offers 40  multistages within 25 levels that offers more challenging gameplay that removes pepper and has salt doing everything such as being converted into all the other spices. This simple change creates more strategic planning to complete each level. And as a bonus for players, the 1.1 update will include 25 more levels featuring new spices and multistages, available in the first week of November.

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
* Requires iOS 7.0 or later
* 32.1 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Salt & Pepper 2: A Surreal Salty Physics Game 1.0 is Free (with in-app purchase) and now available worldwide in the App Store. The optional donation/level pack is priced at $1.99.

Compatibility: Requires iOS 7.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

Demetrios - The BIG cynical adventure - launch trailer, Kickstarter and Greenlight

Demetrios, a humorous Point and Click adventure game (that we've featured before) inspired by the Broken Sword series, has launched a new trailer to celebrate the launch of its Kickstarter and Steam Greenlight campaigns.

Masochisia (2D Narrative Horror)

This isn't my cup of tea and the author states "Masochisia is an experimental take on horror games as a narrative. Individuals struggling with depression, abuse or mental illness may be uncomfortable with some of the themes.", so that's probably enough for you to know whether you'd be interested or not.

If you are, check it out on Steam.
