Daedalic Games From GDLC 2016

Posted on 22 Mar 2016 by

At this year’s GDC, Daedalic gave us some details of several new games being added to their line-up. Crazy Machines 3 and Candle are both puzzle type games, with the former using physics and the latter including…traps? Yeah, that caught my attention as well. Meanwhile, The Long Journey Home is a space epic about…a long journey home, through a procedurally generated universe. And Caravan, a trading/exploration game taking place in Arabic peninsula. Last up is the stealth based real time strategy Shadow Tactics – Blade of the Shogun, which has really caught my eye.

Things are looking grand for Daedalic of late, and it’s really good to see them branching out from the point and click games they usually focus on. Whilst several of the above titles are outside development teams too, suggesting a trend of Daedalic moving more towards the publishing side of the industry. You can check out the full press release for this bag of goodies below and add your own thoughts to mine with but a click and several keystrokes.

Hyper realistic simulation makes it the most advanced and comprehensive Rube Goldberg style puzzle and physics game of all times. Crazy Machines 3 will be released in 2016 for PC, Mac and Linux.

Candle

Together with the spanish developer Teku Studios, Daedalic Entertainment will release the puzzle adventure game Candle. Candle offers challenging puzzles and thought-provoking traps. However, the adventure’s most special feature is its unique art style: all characters and backgrounds are based on hand painted aquarells, who give the game a unique atmosphere. Candle will be released for PC, Mac and Linux in Q2 2016.

Caravan

With Caravan, Daedalic Entertainment adds another independent game to its publishing line-up. Caravan is developed by it Matter Games, a Berlin based studio that belongs to the remote control group. Caravan will be released in Q2, for PC, Mac and Linux.

The Long Journey Home

The already announced space exploration RPG The Long Journey Home is being developed by Daedalic Entertainment Studio West under the creative direction of Andreas Suika. In this unique genre blend, the player has to find his long way home through many, and entirely procedually generated star systems, with little help from friendly (and not so friendly) alien races and scarce ressources, save for his wits. The Long Journey Home will be released in the second half of the year for PC, Mac, Linux, PlayStation®4 and Xbox One™
