Hello and welcome to a new edition of the Spanish video games industry newsletter. The sun is shining, the temperatures are summer like and we have a bunch of news for today’s edition: from the physical release of a modern classic to a bunch of new titles hitting the shelves (both digital and physical).
Out of the Blue, the studio behind the award winning and critically acclaimed Call of the Sea, has released this week a physical edition of its Lovecraftian first-person adventure on PlayStation consoles. The Spanish publisher Meridiem Games has released three different versions of the game: the standard both for PS4 and PS5; the Norah’s Diary Edition that features a premium case, an art book plus some pictures, a poster and travel tickets; and the Journey Edition, limited to 1,000 units and exclusive for PS5, has everything described before plus the game’s soundtrack in vinyl format, a hard cover art book and three litographies.
A few days ago, the people from Super Awesome Hyper Dimensional Mega Team (perhaps one of the coolest names for a studio) showed a new trailer of its upcoming metroidvania shoot ‘em up The Knight Witch. The game, published by Team17, also features a gorgeous art, puzzle and deck building mechanics and will be available this year.
Last but not least, we’ve also had our share of new releases this week. Platonic Games released Sailor Cats 2: Space Oddissey on iOS and Android, a game that will have players looking for their missing cats… in space! Plus, Randy in Sokobanland is a gem for the nostalgic, a game using NES-like art done in under 24 hours using NES Puzzle Maker.
