Open-world cyberpunk platformer The Last Night has run into "massive business, legal and funding issues" and is looking to raise more money, its creator Tim Soret has said. He said he "can't talk about" the issues that his studio Odd Tales ran into, and asked potential investors to get in touch. Since then, it has been wishlisted 186,000 times on Steam. As the Steam page will tell you, it follows the story of Charlie, "a second-class citizen living in a city brimming with augmentation and citize

Ubisoft said that the various editions of Rainbow Six Siege will go sale during the free weekend
And there’s one new element that weirdly adds an incredibly tranquil, relaxing gameplay loop to the game: the Merchant Alliance’s cargo runs. Cargo runs, on the other hand, are reliable and simple: You head to a contact, pick up valuable cargo, and then deliver it to another contact somewhere else.

Today we met our next hero, Ashe, and she’s a firecracker of a lady. Ashe runs the Deadlock Gang, which is an important presence in the Overwatch universe that we haven’t really explored yet.

But if you're in the mood for something a little off the beaten path, you might also want to take a minute or two to check out the "Halloween Sale Picks" over at Itch.io.
