Clones, dismemberment and pinball platforming take centre stage in Team17’s Gamescom trailer onslaught

Matt Sayer 24 August 2017 NEWS


These upcoming games want to challenge your expectations.

Team17, the Worms-developer-turned-publisher, has kicked off its Gamescom showcase with new trailers for three of its upcoming titles. First up, we have the FPS/base-building hybrid Genesis: Alpha One:

As the trailer shows, Genesis: Alpha One takes the survival aspect of popular games such as ARK: Survival Evolved and throws in a construction element where you're expanding your space station and collecting the DNA of alien creatures to custom-clone new crew members with a range of exotic powers. This novel combination looks intriguing and will be coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC.

Next up is the turn-based RPG Sword Legacy: Omen:

While the trailer doesn't do a bang-up job of distinguishing Sword Legacy: Omen from other games in the genre, the simple cel-shaded art style looks quite nice and the prospect of adventuring through an alternate-history Britain in search of the fabled Excalibur sounds fascinating. Sword Legacy: Omen will be coming to PC in 2017.

Last up is the pinball-platforming action of Yoku's Island Express:

As the furry little postman Yoku, it's your job to deliver mail across Mokumana Island by bouncing your way through pinball-like levels filled with flippers, bumpers and spring-loaded catapults. The tropical environments look great thanks to an art style reminiscent of Rayman Legends, and in news that's sure to excite all you Switch owners out there, the game will be coming to Nintendo's system along with PS4, Xbox One and PC in 2018.
