Тургор (Turgor?): a dark and surreal adventure

The few people that played Pathologic know exactly just how bizarre, unsettling, innovative and beautiful those Russian avant-garde adventure games can be (correct answer: very), whereas the poor souls that haven't tried it yet -probably- still believe Doom 3 to be the appex of interactive storytelling. Consequently you lot really have to try Pathologic out... Anyway, on to some interesting news I should have posted quite some time earlier but kept forgetting.

Ice-Pick Lodge, the team behind Pathologic, are already working on their new project. It's called Тургор (meaning Turgor, though something tells me the final name will be something along the lines of Tension), already has a most interesting official website in Russian, looks bloody amazing and is a survival horror adventure, which apparently is something like a survival horror game but -astonishingly- with a few adventure elements thrown in. As for the plot, well, it obviously has to do with surviving, avoiding death, interacting with Sisters and Brothers and not dying. In a dark, surreal and sort of fleshy environment. Better watch the trailer posted above, though... it took me bloody ages to upload.

  6. Heck I never even finished Doom 3. I wuz bored.

    The current issue has its cover article on Dead Space. A lone adventurer/space marine has to survive the attacks of an alien threat long thought dead. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

    Jolie fans? I can't imagine how you must feel about the upcoming Beowulf movie.

  8. Beowulf movie you said guttertalk? Like in Beowulf the mythic pre-English hero? Hope he's not played by Jolie, really. I mean, she got tits, wich although lovely don't look particularly heroic...

    Anyway. A lone space marine? GASP!

    Fk dear, what do you mean the video's gone? Blue Stinger?

  9. Jolie will play Grendel's mother, which at first sounds disappointing. However, this film is a computer variation on rotoscoping, so, in the movie. She appears human in the movie . . . except she's nekkid with a golden skin.

    (The sound of google images getting hit with "Jolie Beowulf naked")
