Play-Asia.com for Nepal

As many of you may know, on the 25th of April, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal, and current reports have estimated that over 8 million people have been affected, displaced by the quake and are in dire need of aid.

Even though International aid has already started to mobilize, with a quarter of the country’s population facing immediate shortages of water, food, and electricity, as well as fears for an outbreak of disease, Nepal needs as much help as possible from the global community. According to the United Nations, at least 1.4 million people currently require food aid.

From today until May 10th, at Play-Asia.com, we are starting our own donation drive in efforts to help the Nepal Earthquake 2015 Relief Operation. To do this, we will be donating 1 US Dollar for every order made within this time frame to the Hong Kong Red Cross  for relief & recovery work in the Nepal Earthquake 2015 Relief Operation. , as we have cooperated with them before in previous charities. We hope that with your help, we can unite together and help allievate the hardships of the people of Nepal.

The Falling Sun now available on Steam Early Access

From a UK based indie studio comes The Falling Sun, a first person, horror game set in post-WW2 Burma. The Japanese have withdrawn after the Allied victory and British forces regain control of the region, however when a small armoured column goes silent, a young lieutenant is sent on one last mission to find out what happened. Upon his arrival he is faced with horrors beyond that of the World War, will you be able to overcome them?

The Falling Sun provides a gripping story in a refreshing environment all the while keeping you on edge around every corner. The atmosphere will keep you on your toes, keep a keen ear and don’t always rely on your weapon to get you out of harm’s way.

With a series of acts you can immerse yourself in the game’s story through campaign mode; or even face the onslaught of horror in survival. Whatever you choose to do, keep your wits sharp. The game currently ships with two acts and a survival mode but further installments will be added without additional cost from the standard game price.

Mission Control: NanoMech Lands on Steam Early Access

Players use authentic nanoscience while fighting a rogue AI on Mars!

Mission Control: NanoMech is now available on Steam Early Access where users can contribute to the development of this game based on authentic nanoscience and real life NASA space technology.

Find out more at http://store.steampowered.com/app/338030/

NanoMech is a single-player action-adventure game in which players use nanoscience to upgrade future space technologies to accomplish mission objectives. Set fifty years in the future as mankind is colonizing the solar system, the player begins the game by delivering a shipment of raw materials to a factory on the surface of Mars. A rogue artificial intelligence named D-brain has taken control of the factory and most of its robotic workers and refuses to let the humans go. With the threat of a massive Mars dust storm cutting off communications to the rest of the Mars bases, it’s up to the player to save the other humans trapped inside the factory.

Luckily, several friendly robots are on hand to help the player fight back. The robots gift the player with a special spacesuit and teach the player how it can be improved with nanotechnology. As the game progresses, the player is helped further by scientists hiding inside the factory who leave clues and information that help the player understand and use the nanomaterials in optimal ways. This improvement process must be mastered by players as it is directly linked to the progressive difficulty in the game. Presented with puzzle challenges, the player must race against the clock to keep their robotic team members functioning while searching for more raw materials and the hidden scientists in order to get strong enough to confront D-brain directly.

NanoMech was partially funded under grants from the National Science Foundation (Grants #0823411, 0835450) and developed in collaboration with NASA through a Space Act Agreement. Nanotechnology, 3D printing and other cutting edge technologies will drive space exploration in the future. The game is based on real nanotechnology and was reviewed by experts for accuracy. Players learn about and authentically use these technologies in order to improve their equipment and succeed at mission objectives. As players learn how to defeat D-brain, they learn about atomic structures of nanomaterials and their different capabilities. Nanotechnology is science, engineering and technology conducted at the nanoscale, which is about 1 to 100 nanometers. Materials developed using this technology have special properties not previously present with traditional methods.

With a steady cadence of update goodness coming in the months ahead to the final launch of Edge of Space, there’s no better time to explore the boundaries of space especially with Edge of Space on sale for the price $5.84 (a 55% discount featured on Steam’s Daily Deal today!)

  • Revamped Research System – Research system has been changed to allow players more freedom to diverge off into specific tech branches

Edge of Space is an open-world, dynamically-generated, sandbox survival-adventure game. Gamers emerge from a crashed cryopod with only a laser mining pick and the minor gear and immediately start exploring, collecting resources from valuable mined ore, and fabricating survival equipment.

At the absolute edge of space, gamers must adapt or die – good luck ArkCo Operatives!
