Spellirium's Kickender Lets You Play The Alpha Version Now
Published on Tuesday, 09 April 2013 08:28
Spellirium is a word puzzle, point-and-click graphic adventure game where you spell words and solve puzzles to defeat the monsters that inhabit the land and to solve a mystery. Ryan Henson Creighton from Untold Entertainment talks about the development behind Spellirium and how you can be a part of finalizing the product. He also mentions that you can own the alpha version today by pre-ordering Spellirium. Pre-orders will help enhance the game to make it the best possible adventure game that it can be. However, the alpha version has no sound throughout the whole game and there are no cutscenes in the third act, but you can still enjoy the adventure that Spellirium has to offer. There are several pre-order tiers to choose from and all except the lowest tier will grant you the alpha version today and the full version when it is released. When will the full version be released you ask? As Ryan states, “When will it be finished? When it’s finished.”
Here we are. The next generation of consoles is among us and it is finally time to start thinking about finally unplugging our beloved current-gen systems. Could there be a better swan song for one of these systems than taking a trip back to Rapture?
Let’s face it: buying digital games is significantly more convenient than buying from a retail store. You don’t have to put pants on to go outside, nor do you even have to go outside. You don’t have to drive to the store, nor do you have to wait in line at said store. On top of that, the price is generally the exact same, if not more for the physical version.
Let’s face it: staying in just your underwear, FTW.
Despite the overwhelming advantages of buying digital, I still can’t fully commit to it. While I understand I am more in the minority with each day that goes by, I truly believe I have a legitimate case about buying physical copies of games.
In some sort of cosmic twist, I have seen the future. No, I didn’t find out where/when/why I’ll die, nor did I even find out what I’ll have for breakfast tomorrow (I hope it’s pancakes). But I assure you, I have seen the future.
The future of video games that is. I recently got to test out Morpheus - uh, I mean PlayStation VR - Sony’s answer to the ever-growing interest in virtual reality. Although the headset is currently far from completion, it’s also far from shotty.
Whether it’s a rainy day, a sickness, or some other reason not to go outside and enjoy the beautiful summer air, video games are the perfect way to spend your time - that is, if you can find a game to play. In terms of releases, summer generally isn’t the most fruitful of seasons, and this year is no different. So what games could/should you be sinking your teeth into during the dog days?
