The Darwin Project – Let’s Play Page

The Gigamax crew begin their adventure with The Darwin Project thanks to receiving an Alpha key for Steam. Jumping on the brand new Gigamax Gaming PC, Gigs and Mack were ready to see what this new Battle Royale game had to offer. The crew was not disappointed with what they saw.

A New Take On A Beloved Game Mode 

A much smaller and confined experience when compared to other Battle Royale games like PUBG or Fortnite, The Darwin Project is something completely new. 7 players to a map, the game is focused on survival rather than conflict. Players are tasked with staying alive in the harsh, frozen environment. Building a fire is a necessity and upgrading your weapons is a must. Periodically, a hexagonal section of the map will turn red and become uninhabitable. Players will need to work around this obstacle and take refuge in the rapidly shrinking map.

There’s no telling when The Darwin Project will be available to the public. The Gigamax crew will be keeping a close eye on this game as the small, Alpha experience lived up to expectations. Even for an Alpha, there were only a few changes we noticed need to be made. The future looks bright for The Darwin Project.

Very Early Impressions: The Darwin Project

Very Early Impressions: The Darwin Project

After spending a long chilly night with The Darwin Project, we’ve determined that the future for this new indie survival experience look bright, but there is obviously much work is left to be done. Scavengers Studio was kind enough to send us an Alpha key for their upcoming Battle Royale style game and the small team of 17 has pulled off quite an impressive feat. They have managed to build an original experience in a genre that seemed doomed to 100 player rounds on massive islands. This was achieved through focusing on the survival and crafting features that are often times ignored in this style of game. Could The Darwin Project be the title that steers the genre in a new direction?

Let’s Take A Closer Look

From the start, this game is a much more contained experience. Seven competitors enter the ring to fight for their lives in a very “Hunger Games” like situation. Much like PUBG and Fortnite, players are dropped into a lobby that allows those participating some time to converse and get a feel for the competition while also given full freedom to hit each other with axes and arrows. After the countdown is up those competing are dropped into a ring that is made up of seven hexagons each representing a zone. Players are spawned in on their own portion of the map (hexagon) and the games begin. Right off the bat players will realize that to survive the harsh frozen climate, they will need a fire. This is where The Darwin Project distinguishes itself from the main players in the genre.

It’s All About Survival 

Survival is at the forefront of this experience and if ignored, you can never hope to see the end of a match. As of now, chopping down wood and tearing apart leather sofas is the primary means of collecting resources. These actions result in materials that can be fashioned into a variety of tools that can be used to get ahead of the competition. Craftables include axe/bow upgrades, jackets to prevent freezing to death, speed improvements, and a variety of “tech” that needs the elusive electronic resources. These bizarre future upgrades can be made by collecting a piece of technology that randomly spawns around the map at various times throughout the match. The only catch to this is players are all made aware of the spawn location turning the hunt into a race, for this game-changing resource. Some examples of tools that can be fashioned out of this equipment are turrets, over shields, and teleporters.

Currently, the survival aspect is very fun but needs to be fleshed out more and while the combat can be exciting it feels a little too quick and sporadic for the slow and steady nature of the hunting and gathering you do before engaging an opponent. Luckily survival isn’t all that sets this game apart.

Show Director Mode

The other major way Scavengers Studio is making The Darwin Project its own idea is through the game’s “Show Director Mode.” The eighth player is not a competitor on the battlefield, but instead a robot that can fly around the arena and cause havoc for the fighters. Some examples of their powers include swapping players positions or dropping bombs that disrupt the action from time to time. Overall, it is a nice twist that is still in its early stages but has a lot of potentials to truly set the game apart and maybe create a new sub-genre.

While The Darwin Project may still be very early in development, its Alpha seemed more fleshed out than most Betas that are released today. The graphics style is original and gameplay has plenty of room to become something great. This indie game has tons of potential and we can’t wait to see how the talented team at Scavengers Studio refines their experience, especially when the Battle Royale genre has grown so stagnant. Gameplay footage Gigamax recorded will be available soon so be sure to keep your eye on GigamaxGames.com for more information on The Darwin Project!

Show Director Mode Announced for The Darwin Project

Show Director Mode Announced for The Darwin Project

During Microsoft's press briefing at E3 2017 yesterday, Scavenger Studio announced that The Darwin Project is coming to the Xbox One. This brutal title pits friends against each other in a Hunger Games style fight with a game show vibe. The team behind the game also shared some new information on the show's director and what the player controlling them can do.

The Darwin Project, e3, new games

The Show Director - Sociopath In Charge

The show director is a unique role that lets one player oversee a match like the host of some sociopathic game show. This role is being added to create thrilling moment to moment action through uniquely asymmetrical gameplay. As the show director in The Darwin Project, the player will be able to observe the entirety of the arena via an invisible drone and learn how each of the seven contestants is planning their strategies. The director will be able to influence the outcome of the match utilizing a collection of tools unlocked through a progression system. If the show director wants to give a competitor an unforeseen edge they can do so by restricting zones, calling in airstrikes, or even triggering a manhunt which reveals a contestants location for 90 seconds.

The show director mode is being included by Scavenger Studio to revolutionize the battle royale sub genre. Another feature ready to be revealed at a later time will even allow for live stream viewers on Twitch or Mixer to get involved in the wacky gameplay.

The Darwin Project, e3, new games

The Impending Ice Age

The Darwin Project takes place in post apocalyptic landscape in the Northern Canadian Rockies. Civilization is preparing for an impending ice age through a project that is half science experiment and half live entertainment. It challenges players to fight the cold and each other to survive in a snow covered arena. The Darwin Project offers a competitive multiplayer third person experience with an emphasis on survival. Players will have to withstand extreme environmental conditions, track opponents, set traps, craft tools and maybe even negotiate temporary alliances to be the last one standing when the sun rises.

If you're at E3 and would like to try out, The Darwin Project it is currently playable at the Microsoft booth. Check out some gameplay below and stay tuned with Gigamax for more information on this interesting game!

Radical Heights Gameplay First Impressions

Radical Heights Gameplay First Impressions

Gameplay from Boss Key Productions new Battle Royale game, Radical Heights is beginning to surface. The early access is now available for free on Steam and gamers have a lot to say about it. Boss Key Productions is a relatively new developer, founded in 2014 and their most well-known game so far was Lawbreakers. The underwhelming sales and performance of Lawbreakers has gamers uncertain whether or not Radical Heights will be able to catch the gaming world's attention.

Gameplay from GameSpot

A Redemption Story

Lawbreakers fell flat against other hero based shooters like Overwatch or Rainbow Six Siege to name a couple. Now Radical Heights is going up against monstrous Battle Royale games this time around. Fortnite and PUBG have absolutely stole the world's attention when it comes to the Battle Royale genre and the indie game ‘Darwin Project’ has also captured the imaginations of gamers. Huge hits like Grand Theft Auto V, Overwatch, and the Division all have or had at one time rumors circulating that they’re exploring a Battle Royale mode. Even the highly anticipated Red Dead Redemption 2 has seen its share of Battle Royale rumors. Boss Key is up against some heavy hitters and the jury is still out if Radical Heights will be able to find its own spot in this competitive genre.

boss key productions logo, boss key radical heights

Exploring the gameplay that’s coming in, Radical Heights has some interesting features that make it stand out. The 80’s game show themed setting gives the entire game a different feel when compared to the other massively popular Battle Royale games on the market today. PUBG’s gritty shooter experience and Fortnite’s cartoony graphics don’t come close to the experience Boss Key Productions created with Radical Heights. If it’s better or worse, that still remains to be seen. However, unique is absolutely the word to describe the setting Boss Key created.

Something A Little Different 

The waiting lobby lets player race with BMX bikes, creating a little more of an interesting pre-game experience. When the match starts and gamers jump into the relatively small map, one of the first things they’ll notice is landing is a bit rougher than Fortnite or PUBG. There is no parachute and instead, the character does a classic 80’s combat roll on landing. It is yet to be seen if this will only be a feature during early access but it actually adds a bit of excitement to the game. Forgoing the parachute allows gamers to get on the ground and into the action quicker. Beyond these interesting additions, the gameplay itself stands out among the current Battle Royale environment.

One of the most exciting features that are unlike the aforementioned Battle Royale games is the cash system. Around the map, there are cash registers and other objects that can be broken open and cash comes falling out. Players accumulate cash to buy guns and gear from vending machine-like objects located around the map. Instead of collecting all the equipment around the map, this new mechanic is an exciting feature. These vending machines have the potential to be a focal point of action and epic battles. There are still health packs and even food that can be found around the map but gear to win games will all come from the vending machines. 

Not only can people buy equipment with the cash they pick up, they can save it for later matches. Players can withdraw or deposit cash at any time during a map at one of the Cash Back machines and can also use the money they earn to purchase cosmetic items in between rounds.

Combat and Final Impressions

The combat is intense, violent, and exhilarating. Fast-paced, the game doesn't have some of the long lulls that can be found in PUBG’s original two maps. Even though it’s in its early access, the game runs relatively smooth and seems to be put together well. The inside of buildings are a bit bare but the shooting mechanics and gunplay seemed tight and responsive.

Overall Boss Key Productions may have missed the mark with Lawbreakers but Radical Heights has a great chance of leaving a strong impression on the gaming community. Going up against international hits seems to be Boss Key Productions play and if Radical Heights hits big it could redeem the young developer.

Indie Game Spotlight: YouTube Playlist

Indie Game Spotlight: YouTube Playlist

Indie games have a special place in the Gigamax crew’s heart. For independent organizations, developing, producing and publishing a complete video game isn’t easy. These games are usually put together by small teams that pour their heart and soul into their adventures. Every now and then, Gigamax hosts the Indie Game Spotlight, showcasing some of the classics and new arrival to the indie game scene.

This is a little look at the indie games the Gigamax crew has celebrated. Be sure to keep checking back for information on upcoming Indie Spotlights!

Find the Indie Game Spotlight playlist below!

Some of the games that make up this playlist include Rocket League, Oxenfree, Cuphead, Enter the Gungeon, The Darwin Project and so many more. With more indie games being released all the time, you can be sure this playlist will continue to expand!

When and Where?

To get a heads up on when the Gigamax Games crew will be featuring indie games on YouTube, follow them on Twitter and Facebook! Also, don’t forget to catch the streams every Tuesday and Thursday where Gigs and Mack play a wide range of different games and genres. Anyone interested in seeing what games are next on the stream schedule, stop over on the stream page for more information!

Time To Celebrate

Let’s celebrate all the hard work that has gone into these works of art. AAA games are of course usually more graphically appealing with larger worlds utilizing their bigger budgets but at the same time, they feel more sterile.

When big corporations get their hands on the creative process of developing a video game, things start to change and often times suffer. Indie games avoid this kind of corporate input and instead, the teams create their own vision without the need to appease their bosses. This is what allows indie developers to truly push the envelope and develop the games they want to make. This kind of passion is worth celebrating and that’s exactly the goal of the Indie Weeks at Gigamax Games. 

Thank you all so much for taking the time to stop by. Don’t forget to Like, Comment, and Subscribe for the latest gaming content! Be sure to let the Gigamax crew know what you want them to play in the comments below!
