The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

We have been patiently waiting and counting down for the last few months for Sumo Digital and Gun Media’s The Texas Chainsaw Massacre to return. The early access testing clearly showed that this co-op pvp asymmetrical horror game is one for the Hall of Fame. Who doesn’t love the idea of being chased by Leatherface or any of his unstable family members?

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre drops on August 18, 2023, for PC through Steam, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.

Flutter Away

We first saw Flutter Away as an announcement during the Wholesome Direct 2023 stream and have dreamed of being a butterfly researcher ever since. Embark on a five-day trip to the Amazon rainforest as a butterfly researcher excited to escape the city. Explore nearby tracks, take photos, meet animal friends and journal your discoveries. 

Flutter Away is coming on August 3, 2023, to PC through Steam and Nintendo Switch.

RuneScape Necromancy Patch

In the last few months, we have found that RuneScape is an incredible game. It only took us two decades to admit that Jagex knows what they are doing. So, after spending hours upon hours of farming experience for the currently available skills, we are excited that they are adding another one. Necromancy is a new combat skill with players raising the dead from Gielinor’s underworld to face off against Rasial, the first Necromancer.

Runescape’s Necromancy patch rises on August 7, 2023, for PC through Jagex and Steam.
