Gamescom 2015 round-up: Part 2

Gamescom 2014 round-up - Part 2
Gamescom 2014 round-up - Part 2

If you missed the first part of our gamescom 2015 coverage, courtesy of our German colleagues at Adventure-Treff, there's still time to get caught up. For everyone else, let's forge ahead with the rest of another very busy games convention in Cologne.

The Adventures of Bertram Fiddle

We discussed the current state of The Adventures of Bertram Fiddle with Seb Burnett from Rumpus Animation. Episode 1 - A Dreadly Business has been available for iPad for some time and recently came out for PC. We saw some art from the second part, which will have more difficult puzzles than a first installment that was criticized for being too easy. A Kickstarter campaign for the second and last part will be started as early as September, for which the funding target has not yet been decided. The playtime is again set to be two to three hours.

The second game to be presented was AER, in which you can freely switch between human and bird shape to make your way to a variety of floating islands. AER is heavily exploration-based and may be worth keeping an eye on.

It’s not out on iOS yet. We’ll add the link when the port version is released.

@Jay Tholen Graphics and especially animations look great mate but it’s waaaaaay to surreal and trippy for me.

With The Devil’s Men, the Follett game Pillars of the Earth, and the new Gantefohr adventure also in the works, I wouldn’t be counting out Daedalic any time soon, Advie. They aren’t even developing AER internally.

Daedalic is riding the shark as the rest of the companies, my faith is demolishing.  and ttg wins a round each and every day.

once i was the biggest supporter of Daedalic sooner mayhap the greater oppose(r).

i made promise at the AER earlier preview, and no shakers laws this time.

i just hope/pray i am wrong at my assumptions.

Dropsy dev here. Thanks for including us! :0)

I gotta note that the Gamescom build was a bit old and missing a few quality-of-life features, so I’d agree that it was a bit slow/unusual. That said, I’m a bit miffed at the art nitpicks, as the game’s ornate visual style have gone over very well with most critics. Whatever the case, I hope the full game changes the writer’s mind when it’s out.
