Join Alexander, the clock keeper and main protagonist, on his journey through the clock tower, full of enormous gears and mechanisms, where the collapse of time itself has begun. His precious clock has been sabotaged causing Alexander’s natural aging process to be greatly sped up. With time now being so precious, he needs to step in and restore its natural flow. Instead of collecting medkits, he must gather time to prevent him from dying of old age within minutes.

About the game

In The Watchmaker, a puzzle-adventure game, players take on the role of Alexander. In his steampunk world of giant clock mechanisms, Alexander’s routine involves repairing his precious clock tower every day, adjusting its mechanisms, oiling the gears and polishing everything down to the smallest piece. For years, this is the only life he has known.

But one day, Alexander is awakened by a mysterious voice. The voice warns him that something has gone wrong: someone, some unknown being, has sabotaged his beautiful tower! With the clock not working properly, time has gone mad. Consequently, Alexander starts ageing abnormally quickly, leaving him only a handful of time to repair the damage.

Guided by the mysterious voice and armed only with a magnetic glove and the ability to control time, he must travel the halls and arcades of the tower in search of the saboteur. Various obstacles, enemies and riddles buried in the clock’s intricate mechanisms stand in his way. But Alexander must push on to save the clock and restore time to its natural rhythm, all while gradually uncovering the mysteries of the tower and its even stranger past.

  • Unique ageing process that replaces the usual health bar
  • Numerous Collectable items

THROUGH THE WOODS IS COMING TO PLAYSTATION®4 AND XBOX ONE!

1C is looking forward to scare all console players stiff with Through the Woods. After its successful release on PC, the award-winning third-person Norse horror adventure is coming to major console platforms. It will be released for Xbox One and Playstation®4 on 2nd May and 8th May 2018 respectively. Named as being “one of the most anticipated horror games” by IGN and “one of this year’s best horror games” by CG Magazine, Through the Woods is bound to live up to its reputation on the consoles.

Following a desperate mother in the search for her kidnapped son, Through the Woods immerses the player in the mysterious dark atmosphere of a deep forest, lit only by the moon and the cone of one’s flashlight. The forest lives a different life at night, with mythological creatures roaming the woods, making every encounter potentially a deadly one. The biggest element of fear is the unknown. It seemingly materializes from the darkness. Unidentifiable sounds penetrate the silence and the occasional hint of movement may be spotted in the shadows.

In a deeply personal narrative, the mother’s relationship with her son is gradually revealed, as she realizes what perils her young son might be facing and what is at stake. All that matters to her is finding her son and making sure he is safe. Deep in the dark woods, on her own, with many obstacles to tackle, she fights not only with the forest and its creatures, but also with demons from the past buried deep inside.

The media are welcome to request review keys for Through the Woods through pr@1cpublishing.eu .

Ancestors Legacy adds Tobii eye tracking support!

1C is proud to announce that Ancestors Legacy, the upcoming history-inspired squad-based real-time strategy developed by Destructive Creations, has added eye tracking support to its feature list. Teaming up with Tobii Gaming, experts in both flat-screen and VR tracking of user sightlines and related gear, the game’s developers now offer three new ways for users to move the in-game camera. All three are implemented in the PC Beta version as of now, and will be available in the final game right from its release on 22 May 2018.

Players equipped with Tobii eye tracking hardware will surely savor the extended options for camera control that the precise tracking of their focal point enables: Extended View – moving the camera in the Action Camera mode adds more immersion to the harsh atmosphere of battles; Bungee Zoom – hands-free panning over the map in the top-down view and zooming in on potential targets improves player navigation; Center at Gaze – moving the map according to a steady focal point always keeps the map centered in the middle of the screen. See these features in action in the following videos:



https://tobiigaming.com/games/ancestors-legacy/

“Teaming up with us and adding eye tracking to an RTS game like Ancestors Legacy further expands the options in which developers can enable players to control their units, move across the battlefield and gain an overall tactical advantage. Immersion in the game becomes deeper with eye tracking, as the added features help create a more natural feel to navigation and virtually expand the borders of one’s monitor screen,” says Ebbe Strandell, R&D Program Manager at Tobii Gaming.

This first DLC for the original streamlined real-time grand strategy game Realpolitiks, developed by Jujubee S.A., expands the players’ options as well as reflects some of the current events on the geopolitical scene and trends in contemporary political movements. The DLC is available on SteamTM and other digital stores as a separate product, or bundled with the base game.

Revolving around the one country that all heads are turning towards regularly in recent news, Realpolitiks: New Power offers a unique opportunity to arrive at various possible outcomes of the potentially explosive situation on the Korean peninsula on the geopolitical and macroeconomic level and compare them to events taking place in real life. In the Korean Crisis mini-scenario, players can choose either side of the conflict, playing for the USA, China, North Korea or Japan.

Apart from this new mini-scenario, Realpolitiks: New Power also adds features that expand on the current scenarios, boosting the replay value of the base game with Non-Governmental Organizations that try to influence politics to their own ends, as well as new features for creating larger territorial units.
The NGOs present an extra challenge, as they exert additional pressure on world leaders and governments. Players also have the option to work in secret with the mafia, and maybe even support large corporations with favorable subsidies. They’ll also enjoy increased opportunities for business growth while maintaining good relations with separatists, or bring further harmony to their country through various religious and cultural movements, and much more.

New diplomatic options in international politics include non-aggression pacts enabling peaceful coexistence with other nations, while political annexation offers another option for enlarging territory without the use of military power. Even so, everything comes at a price…

More about the new features of Realpolitiks: New Power can be seen in a gameplay trailer with developer’s commentary that will help players become quickly acquainted with them, and learn to make use of them right away!

1C and developer Snowhound Games are proud to announce that Deep Sky Derelicts, an original combination of turn-based strategy and RPG that is enriched with tactical card combat and popular rogue-like elements, has just received an illustrious update as part of its Early Access journey toward full release. Eager scavengers supporting the project can now enjoy and take advantage of loads of new content. The universe of Deep Sky Derelicts has just been expanded by lightyears, stretching average game duration to nearly double what it was before.

New updates will continue to be delivered every month according to the current roadmap, together with more frequent fixes, until the full release of Deep Sky Derelicts on 31 May 2018.

Check out some illustrious new screenshots from Deep Sky Derelicts: http://bit.ly/2x33Ehn

The February ‘Illustrious Monuments’ update enables players to expand their pool of choices and find new ways of getting deeper into the game, to explore new derelicts, engage in new situations and encounters, and find new ways of getting through them successfully. Full-fledged citizenship for characters is still a few months away, but another part of the unforgiving road has been laid towards a better life for space scavengers trying to make a living in the Deep Sky sector.

The Illustrious Monuments update includes:

- 3 new character levels (level cap now at 7)
- 5 skill specializations, with 1 for each type
- 7+ very rare Illustrious mods
- 8 new extension mods
- 5-6 additional room conditions that can affect both exploration and combat gameplay
- Energy management changes, along with a brand-new Research lab
- 5 more derelicts (9 per play-through in total)
- Progression from Tier 1 to Tier 2 ships
- 10 new enemies
- New main and side missions (each derelict has at least 1 of each)
- Updated Arena with revised encounters (max 20)

“We’re very thankful to all the fans of Deep Sky Derelicts, for their valuable support. We’re striving to create a very distinctive gaming experience, and happy to see it paying off so well. The player reviews we’ve seen, as well as their creative suggestions – some of which have already made it into the game – are lighting our way to what we believe will be a successful, well-accepted and popular title among true tactical game lovers.” – Dmytro Zhovtobryukh, CEO of Snowhound Games.

The media are welcome to request Early Access review keys through pr@1cpublishing.eu or Keymailer.

About the game


“They drift in the void. Desolate but not empty.”

In a grim dystopian future, where mankind has scattered across the galaxy and the human society has split into two distinct classes, you are a poor stateless outcast forced to live off scraps from derelict alien stations and ships in the outer space, yet you dream of becoming a privileged citizen and living on the surface of a habitable planet, enjoying non-synthetic air, water and food. A fabled alien derelict ship somewhere within the Deep Sky sector of space is your voucher for a citizenship and a promise of cozy life on a hospitable planet.

Hire and control a squad of up to three mercenary characters and set on to explore derelict ships within your reach from the scavenger's base. Searching the derelicts for loot and clues, you come across many friendly inhabitants and traders, but more often – various enemies. Challenge and defeat them in tactical turn-based fights, where randomly-drawn cards form your changing arsenal of combat actions, gain experience for yourself and your crew, loot dead bodies, resupply and upgrade once back at your base. The scavenger's home ship gives you the opportunity to heal and level-up your mercenaries, equip them, upgrade their gear or recharge energy for life support during missions.

Features

- Fresh take on turn-based combat with cards
- Refined sci-fi comic book look & feel
- Endless customization options for characters and scavenging teams
- High replay value thanks to procedural generation of content
- Story of the human society divided within a dystopian universe
- Two game modes: story and arena

REALPOLITIKS: NEW POWER DLC coming soon!

PRAGUE, Czech Republic, February 15, 2018 – 1C is proud to announce that Realpolitiks, a streamlined real-time grand strategy game developed by Jujubee S.A., now boasts new content in the form of a free update as from today. A month from now, on March 15, 2018, the first DLC – Realpolitiks: “New Power” – is set to be released. Both updates will bring fresh content into the game, reflecting current world events, trends in international relations and contemporary political movements.

The free update for Realpolitiks provides additional features and technology projects with a view to unlocking further possibilities within the player’s country. The ”Outsourcing” project tree will allow players to generate more action points, which they will find particularly handy in later stages of the game. Additionally, the “Advanced Arms Import” military project tree has been upgraded and will now offer the possibility to import transport units which should greatly improve player mobility even in the early stages of the game.

Two features have also been added to the free update. From now on, players can change a nation’s name and flag before the start of the game, and later rename their own country, blocs, and countries that they will liberate in order to further customize their territory to their liking. Players can also give away provinces to countries claiming them and thus increase good relations.

Realpolitiks: “New Power” DLC injects fresh content and realism into the world of Realpolitiks. The “Korean Crisis” mini-scenario that features an actual nuclear threat, Non-Governmental Organizations that try to influence politics and new features for creating larger territorial units are highlights of this DLC.

The “Korean Crisis” mini-scenario points to one of the extensively discussed countries – North Korea. The North Korean nuclear threat becomes real in Realpolitiks: players can choose either side of the imminent conflict and have to deal with the explosive situation by either avoiding it, or adding more fuel to the fire. Playable nations include: the USA, China, North Korea and Japan.

An extra challenge is added through the presence of Non-Governmental organizations that exert additional pressure on today’s rulers and governments. Players have the options to work in secret with the mafia, support large corporations with subsidies and increased opportunities for business growth, maintain good relations with separatists and/or bring further harmony to their country through religion and more.

New diplomatic options in international politics include non-aggression pacts enabling peaceful coexistence with other nations, while political annexation offers another option for enlarging one’s territory without the use of military power. But still, everything comes at a price…

Ancestors Legacy - Open Beta, Pre-Purchase, Release Date Revealed

Ancestors Legacy is one step closer to its release, 1C and developer Destructive Creations are proud to announce today, as the history-inspired squad-based real-time strategy release date has been set for 22 May 2018 for both Windows PC and Xbox One. The Windows PC version of Ancestors Legacy will be released worldwide through digital outlets, including SteamTM, with the boxed retail version available in selected countries; Xbox One digital version will hit the online Xbox Store on the same day.

The eager warriors do not need to wait all the way until the release in May, as the Open Multiplayer PC Beta is launched on Steam today! After offering the first glimpses to selected players and media in the closed single-player and multiplayer betas at the end of the previous year, Ancestors Legacy is now open for everyone to try out its multiplayer on their own. All four nations represented in the game are playable within the open beta version on one of the three maps, ranging in size from 2 to 6 players (1v1, 2v2 and 3v3). The fans can be accompanied by the AI, their best friend, the neighbor’s kid, or simply join the lobby and wait for a partner to be found.

Play the Open Multiplayer PC Beta now: http://store.steampowered.com/app/720380

Ancestors Legacy also becomes available for pre-purchase today through SteamTM and other selected digital stores. Fans joining the pre-purchase may look forward to receiving a full digital Collector’s Edition of Ancestors Legacy, containing the original soundtrack composed by Adam Skorupa and Krzysztof Wierzynkiewicz, and a digital artbook put together by the art team at Destructive creations. This pre-order offer is topped by a 10% discount off its price, set at 39.99 EUR / 44.99 USD - the same price as for the final base game (without the DLC) in the PC digital version.

The harsh life of a medieval warrior is presented in a new trailer and a batch of fresh screenshots.
We wanted to picture something intimate, personal. Prayers were very popular in medieval times, especially for the nations presented in Ancestors Legacy. Those were warriors who lived to conquer, so whether they were Christians or pagans, they all needed deities to pray to when the battle was upon them. And that’s what we aimed for – not a prayer from an old prayer-book, but rather words that people use when they try to “talk” to their higher powers. When they get personal with whatever it is they believe in.

After being successfully presented at Gamescom 2017, as well as nominated for a Best Indie Gamescom Award, development of Deep Sky Derelicts has been concentrated on delivering an appropriately polished build for the Early Access version of the game. With a good deal of content to get players engaged within the Deep Sky Sector for hours, the Early Access version will be a great starting point for all those interested in playing a part in the development of this indie title. Apart from being able to watch the game grow and mature into the final polished version, they can also report bugs, submit suggestions for development and get exclusive first-row access to any new, additional content. The most active fans will also have a chance to win cool prizes and even become a part of Deep Sky Derelicts forever!

The universe of Deep Sky Derelicts offers vast possibilities, even with its Early Access build. The Story Mode, though capped at Character Level 3 (out of a current max. of 10), and as yet unfinished, still offers several hours of exciting gameplay with high replay value, thanks to existing content variety and the procedural generation of levels and gear. The Early Access release also includes 6 character classes to build your squad from, 13 core equipment types and 17 extension types, which make for countless variations of actual weapons and tools to equip, over 70 different playable cards those pieces of gear can contain, and 12 missions to spice things up and give you a taste of DSD’s story. And if that’s not enough, there’s always the Arena Mode, which provides a great way for players to test their tactical thinking, various weapons and attacks, as well as their luck during this battle-survival mode.
