⏰ With Next Fest set to end on Monday, who ended up installing & trying out Dawnlands? At first glance, the game's general look SCREAMED mobile game to me, so I was unsurprised to find that it's Free-to-Play and intended for both PC and mobile platforms. Some drama on the Steam forums, where folks piled on a thread about the mandatory account creation, decrying it as pushy and a scam. If you'd like to check it out, there's still time!
‣ Our first News styled post is now up on this website! It's a crash course on some of the demos available to try out during Steam Next Fest- so definitely check it out! Speaking of the website, we've pointed the spare domain- Sifner.net- to the website. Now you don't have to type that long-ass Ghost.io domain. (But you still can if you'd like!)
‣ Hashtag Survival turned two on February 6th!
‣ Buckle up to experience a period of me tripping over my feet as I work to get a content calendar duct-taped together with the advent of the secondary news website. I expect it to be equal parts chaotic and hilarious.
Don't Miss Out
⁉️ The Great Circle is available as a demo and worth checking out. Who doesn't want to wander & survive as an animal?! The developer is active on the community Discord and progress has been moving at a good clip. (Store Page)

The developer for HumanitZ announced in their official Discord that they were pushing back the expected window for the game's release. There's no word yet on a new date, but I would plan on Q2 or later. You can access a demo of the game on their Steam store page.
Don't despair, (some) console players; TALES FROM THE FAR TERRITORY - the first portion of The Long Dark DLC- will hopefully hit Playstation and Xbox on March 15th. Unfortunately, you'll have to despair, Switch players, as there is no date when the update will hit the handheld console. Hinterland is now targeting a launch for TALES FROM THE FAR TERRITORY, PART TWO, on Thursday, March 30th, on Steam, Xbox, PlayStation, and Epic Games Store. Hit the link for the details on the content drop. (Steam post)
Square Glade Games posted this neat little YouTube video showcasing the new cover art & visual changes to the art of the leading character for Above Snakes. In addition, there's a fair amount of lore and behind-the-scenes information about the alteration.
First announced at PlayStation's State of Play online event this past September, Pacific Drive is a vehicle-reliant survival horror title set in the Pacific Northwest. A new trailer was released Thursday that has reignited the conversation around the game, with folks excited about the options available for fine-tuning your crazy station wagon of doom. I'd watch the trailer for details (it's too zany for words), and if you're more interested in the mechanics behind the game, pop over to this detailed story run by Gamedeveloper.
Iron Gate senior developer Jonathan Smårs, testing a new manual build snapping tool, shared a short video of the feature to Twitter earlier this week. The 50-second video showcases how players can adjust building pieces' behavior when placed near preexisting structures and components. Valheim players seemed keen on the idea, so fingers crossed that it makes the cut and makes it into the game! Eventually. (Twitter)
