Metro Siege revealed - The Amiga Streets of Rage we always wanted

This is the moment we have been waiting for years to come and I'm glad to 
witness myself incredible games that can push your Amiga to the limits.
We are talking for the new game under development called Metro Siege.

Metro Siege is a classic 2 player Co-op Brawler game like Final Fight and streets of rage.
It is the brawler we always wanted for the Amiga and there was a gap for many years
on this genre. The last descent brawler game i played on my Amiga was Double dragon 3.

Metro Siege has everything you want to see on your screen with OCS graphics
and with only 1mb of ram it can run perfect on A500 at 25fps and the game its
coded on pure C & ASM coding. This means the game runs optimized in 16 colors. 
I can say for sure this is a game missing from the Amiga library.

A teaser trailer is also released from the team with some gameplay
from the 1st level so get ready

We have seen Amiga Bill stream on Twitch hosting
Michael Parent and he told us there will be a nice Boxed version in the future.
We have to follow this project and dont forget to follow VCS on Facebook

We didn't expect so soon a new Amiga game to be revealed.
I have to say 2019 is more prosperous than last year and new ideas and games are always
welcome as we follow the amiga scene. A team called Electric Black Sheep
is developing a multi-scrolling shoot em up called Project horizon.

The graphics are awesome

Some Alien Enemies are chasing the hero

The truth is we dont have enough info yet for this new game but the team
has released a gameplay of the engine showing us the developement and the graphics.
Even some blue alien enemies are killed from gun fire. It looks great.

I have searched in the past and found Electric Black Sheep team
was also developing a new game for the Android platform based on the
International Karate (IK+) Amiga game. One this is for sure, the team
has deep roots in the Amiga gaming and soon one more game will be released.

Say hello to my little blue enemies

Ion Fury PC release - Grab your copy

Many games have been released over the years in retro style.
New built engines serve the purpose of recreating 2D platforms or
other genre games to look and feel like a 90's game.
But what about if you create a new game in reverse ?
How about to develop a 2019 game on 23 years old engine ?
Some say you cant teach an old dog new tricks but this is not
gonna happen with ION Fury.

Ion Fury (formerly Ion Maiden) is a new 1st person shooter game
released on 2019 developed by Voidpoint and published by 3D Realms.
Ion Fury runs on a modified version on Ken Silverman's Base Engine
and its the 1st commercial game that utilizes this engine 19 years later
since WWII GI game was released with this engine.

The game is built on the EDuke32. A fork of the Build engine modified to
run on modern operating systems with some extra tweaks  and effects.
So the look and feel of this game is actual the same engine you played 
20 years ago and the gameplay is awesome.

A big thanks to LGR for getting the pre-release version of the game
on his hands 1st and show us some gameplay and action.

Check out the official PC game release trailer

Go check the game on their official page and grap your copy too.
