Between now and 7th February, you can snag the HD remake of Tim Schafer's classic time-traveling point-and-click adventure game on PS4 and Vita.

"Now or maybe even two hundred years in the tentacle future, it'll still be a fine answer if you ever find yourself asked what's the best adventure game of all time," said Eurogamer contributor Richard Cobbett in his glowing Day of the Tentacle Remastered review.

Titan Souls gets an April release date

Bastion, Shovel Knight and more dated for PSN.

Titan Souls, a game I once described as "a minimalist Shadow of the Colossus meets Dark Souls," is coming to PS4 and Vita in Europe on 15th April, publisher Devolver has confirmed to Eurogamer.

Steam users and North American PlayStation players will receive it a day earlier on 14th April.

Developed by Chroma designer Mark Foster and his colleagues at Acid Nerve, Titan Souls tasks players with slaying 20 giants in an otherwise uninhabited wasteland. You get one hit point and one arrow. Good luck!

A minimalist Shadow of the Colossus meets Dark Souls.

Pretty much every game these days not aimed at children wants to compare itself to Dark Souls, because, well, Dark Souls is awesome. But few manage to actually capture the sense of palm-sweating dread and majestic wonder that catapulted From Software's experimental action-RPG series into an industry mainstay. Titan Souls may do just that, if this early trailer is any indication.

Developed by Chroma designer Mark Foster and his two cohorts at Acid Nerve, Titan Souls has one of those concepts that's so bloody simple it's a wonder no one has thought of it before. It essentially takes the premise of Shadow of the Colossus - wherein you must track down and slay several gigantic creatures in an otherwise uninhabited world - only the combat system is quicker, more reflex-driven, and much, much less forgiving.

Like Shadow of the Colossus' obvious inspiration, Punch-Out!!, Titan Souls' combat is extraordinarily simple to grasp, but difficult to master. You're only granted one hit point and one arrow as you embark on your foolhardy quest. Thankfully, it's a magic arrow and you can hold a button down to have it magically return to you. The downside is you can't move when you're summoning it, so you need to be very, very careful with your timing and positioning.
