The North American F-86F Sabre was the most capable western fighter of the early- to mid-1950s. This swept wing, single engine jet was the most important western aircraft of the Korean War and often tangled with Russian-made MiG-15s over the infamous “MiG Alley”. It was a hard struggle not only for the Korean sky, but also between two excellent aircraft builders of the East and West. In addition to its primary role as an air-to-air fighter, the Sabre could also carry bombs and air-to-ground rockets to attack ground targets.
The Belsimtek simulation of the Sabre is by far the most authentic recreation of this famous warbird to date. Feel what is to fly the Sabre with a professional level flight model, an interactive cockpit, fully functional weapons, a detailed damage model and a richly detailed aircraft. Experience the strengths and weaknesses of the Sabre in combat and find out why seasoned fighter pilots often look back at the Sabre as the most enjoyable aircraft they ever flew.
As part of DCS World, fly the F-86F Sabre in a fully realized combat environment with working weapon systems and capable air and ground threats.

Valencia, Spain – Deconstructeam and Devolver Digital have launched the much-anticipated point-and-click thriller Gods Will Be Watching for PC, Mac, and Linux via Steam, Humble, and GOG. That’s right, your carefree days of crushing candy and enslaving weird Japanese creatures to fight at your whim are over – it’s time to grow up and face some intergalactic moral dilemmas like an adult. Gods Will Be Watching is now available in both a standard edition ($9.99) and a collector’s edition ($19.99) that includes the original soundtrack, a digital art book, and a digital comic that serves as the prologue to the haunting events of Gods Will Be Watching (godswillbewatching.com)
Gods Will Be Watching is a minimalistic “point and click thriller” centered on despair, commitment, and sacrifice as players face intriguing puzzles and tough decisions that will affect their entire crew’s wellbeing. Set against the backdrop of an interstellar struggle, Gods Will Be Watching follows Sgt. Burden and his crew in six tense chapters that examine a multitude of mature themes ranging from hostage situations and wilderness survival to biological weapon prevention and agonizing torture scenarios. Players are faced with incredibly difficult ethical and moral choices as their mental fortitude and personal limits are tested in every scenario. Each decision is crucial and players will need to choose between the lives of their team and the saving the world from genocide.
“My usual video game strategy of shooting everyone I encounter in the face has proven to be impractical in Gods Will Be Watching,” noted Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker. “Shooting people in the knee works though. So that’s nice.”
Gods Will Be Watching is now available at all fine digital storefronts and probably on some backwoods torrents. But don’t do that. Geez, why would we even put that in a press release? For more information on Gods Will Be Watching or to try the original prototype, visit godswillbewatching.com.
Positech Games, Developers of the popular Gratuitous Space Battles and Democracy games for the PC are gratuitously happy to announce that they are currently developing… Gratuitous Space Battles 2!
Like the original, GSB2 is a 2D top-down space strategy game based on the idea of hands-off battles between huge armadas of player-design spaceships. GSB 1 sold over 150,000 copies on PC and continues to be popular with gamers, especially through the extensive mod scene and it’s innovative online asynchronous ‘challenge’ battles.
GSB2 uses an entirely re-written custom engine, vastly better visual effects, a much-improved GUI, and will feature steam achievements, mod support and some very sexy undisclosed new features. The game is especially targeting gamers with multiple monitor setups who enjoy ridiculously over the top space battles, but the engine should comfortable scale down to much older PC’s too. The aim is to replicate all of the OTT silliness of sci-fi movie user-interfaces.
The release date for the game is ‘probably 2014, possibly early 2015. We have not yet decided whether to have a pre-order beta system but this is a strong possibility. The game will be available on PC, Linux and Mac. The engine is custom-written by the developer for this game.

The development of Mordheim: City of the Damned, the first video game adaptation of the cult tabletop game, Mordheim, is going full steam ahead at developers Rogue Factor. Today, they're taking a short break to share some new screenshots! Having previously unveiled the Skaven and the Human mercenaries, they are now revealing one of the next playable factions: the Sisters of Sigmar.
Mordheim: City of the Damned is a turn-based tactical game set in the Warhammer World's doomed city, which blends elements of RPG, highly tactical turn-based combat and intricate unit customisation in a world overwhelmed by chaos and faction rivalry, and where the law of the strongest reigns supreme. Numerous factions are locked in battle in Mordheim, mainly for glory, fortune and power. Today's images unveil the Sisters of Sigmar, one of the four playable factions of the game!
Made up exclusively of women, the Sisters of Sigmar fight in the City of the Damned for a very different reason than the other factions: whereas the mercenaries throughout the Old World are seeking the fame and fortune that the shards of Wyrdstone can grant them, and the Skaven covet the precious green shards for the power they contain, the Sisters of Sigmar are eager to find the Wyrdstones in order to hide it all, where it will not spread further into the Empire the wave of insanity that has engulfed Mordheim.
Riches and infamy await you late 2014 in Mordheim: City of the Damned!

Hey budding C.O.U.N.T.E.R agents! David Nottingham, (Dynamighty Creative Director) here with some exciting CounterSpy news!
Yesterday, the good folks at Sony, along with our co-conspirators at C.O.U.N.T.E.R declassified the Release Date information for CounterSpy. The day that you will be able to get your hands on CounterSpy (and hopefully prevent this crazed superpower plot to destroy our moon), is August 19th in North America.
For those who are not familiar, CounterSpy is an Action Stealth side-scroller from Dynamighty (that’s us) set during the Cold War. You play as an agent for C.O.U.N.T.E.R, whose singular goal is to prevent the superpowers from accomplishing their crazy race to destroy the moon with nuclear missiles.
The August 19th PSN release is for PS4, PS3 & PS Vita and the price is $14.99. As a reminder, the game is Cross-Buy & also Cross-Save, so purchase it once and you’ll have a copy on all three devices!
As we count down to that date, we’ve also got some help from some talented folks at PlayStation, who helped us by putting together this launch trailer. Enjoy!
We are really excited to finally be close to getting the game into your hands. Starting a new studio has been a big journey for John and me, starting from when we left LucasArts back in 2010.
We’ve been joined along the way by some awesome talented folks. We have two Marks, a lot of Chrisses, only one Ryan though (you don’t want more than one Ryan at a small indie studio — trust us). Grace & Devin, Ed & Jamie all helped bring life into this game… plus many others! We may have to start assigning agent names to people in future.
Also a huge thanks to our friends at PlayStation. They’ve all been big believers in the world of C.O.U.N.T.E.R.
So purchase on August 19th, or if you can’t wait, you can alsopre-order! Thanks to the wonders of PlayStation technology, the game will preload on your shiny new PS4 so its available right on launch day.
Stay tuned on Twitter for further announcements. Also, our tumblr continues to post bits and pieces about the development process, including groovy espionage artwork coolness.
So start the clock ticking for August 19th. Meanwhile, read up on your espionage techniques, eat your vegetables and take that yoga class. We need able-bodied C.O.U.N.T.E.R agents. Because if C.O.U.N.T.E.R won’t save us from reckless moon destroying superpowers then who will?
