The FMV/interactive film hybrid video game genre has been around for a while but doesn’t seem to have that many games out there, but they just might get some more exposure as The Gallery has landed a spot in the Dinar Film Festival 2022.
Despite being one of the leading forms of entertainment, gaming is still looked down on as immature, so to have an interactive movie video game enter a film festival is a rather exciting moment. The Gallery, which recently launched on mobile and console, will be screening as a group gameplay event from September 29th to 1st October at Dinard.

Making money out of games has been a long-held dream for many a gamer but it's ultimately difficult to achieve, but PUBG Mobile is making it a little more achievable by announcing their upcoming 2022 PUBG MOBILE Club Open. The open is available to register until 9th October, with qualifiers due to start on October 13th.
The first thing many players are thinking is that these competitions are usually for professionals or those in the top part of the leaderboard, it won't really be an “open” competition. In the past this would sadly be true, however, Krafton has announced for the first time the prerequisite for entry has been lowered and any player ranked Silver or above can sign up by filling out an application in-game.
Tilting Point, a publisher specializing in partnering with independent developers, has announced a three-game deal with entertainment tycoon Netflix. Yes, as the media conglomerate inches further towards world domination, everyone can distract themselves today with the first release in the partnership, Spongebob: Get Cooking.
As of September 27th, global subscribers of Netflix will be able to dive into Bikini Bottom and take control of the Nickelodeon superstar Spongebob in Get Cooking. As the title suggests, players will be taking the cook through some iconic locations and restaurants from the series and no doubt churning out Krabby Patties left, right and centre. Get Cooking functions somewhat as a spiritual successor to Tilting Points People’s Choice Award-winning game SpongeBob: Krusty Cook-Off.
Realistic Sims are very fun experiences and give gamers an excellent chance to experience other walks of life, and Gamabilis has released its hyper-real farm management game Roots of Tomorrow. Whilst the more arcade-type games like Stardew Valley are enjoyable, Gamabilis has used real scientific data to provide a more in-depth and immersive experience.
The game is set in France, a decision no doubt based on the huge scale of the country's agricultural output in the EU. Players can choose between four different farms, each with its own landscape, climates, livestock and unique choices. The objective is to achieve the agroecological transition of the farm, or put simply become more sustainable, within 10 years.
The House of Da Vinci 3 launches on Android after iOS release to give players the conclusion to the time-traveling tale
Following its earlier release on iOS this year, The House of Da Vinci 3 has also officially launched on Android devices. Blue Brain Games' 3D puzzle adventure boasts an average rating of 4.9/5 and will give players the much-awaited conclusion to the story of Leonardo da Vinci. It's a pick-up-and-play title that doesn't require players to have played the first two games in the trilogy.
In news sure to excite fans of biscuits or K-Pop music, the Korean sensations BTS have teamed up with Cookie Run: Kingdom for a series of events. After some warm-up episodes, the collaboration will culminate in a BTS in-game concert, so if anyone's ever wanted to see a cookie sing, they’re in luck.
A dedicated site for pre-registration will launch on September 24th and stick around until October 3rd and if 3 million pre-registrants sign up, all of the participants will receive a bevvy of rewards. These include 7000 crystals, 20 BTS collaboration prints and a decoration of the concert's sign. Given that everybody with no K-Pop knowledge has heard of BTS in some way, that's a milestone likely to be utterly obliterated.
Alchemy Stars has introduced its latest event, entitled Farewell, My Wonderland, bringing with it new characters and a bevvy of rewards. The event will reportedly focus on the underlying message that even after tragic events there is still light, hope and new life, a poignant message for all.
To celebrate the event, Alchemy Star will be gifting players an eye-watering amount of items via a log-in giveaway, with eight days giving a special Post-Battle Pollux Avatar and a not-too-shabby 500 Lumbamber. Other gifts to collect include 2000 Empty Shell Casings for the event stare and some mysterious Anonymous Gift, and who can resist the sound of that?
Fans of the popular Japanese anime series can now experience the franchise on mobile with One Punch Man - The Strongest, the officially licensed RPG that's available to play now on iOS and Android. Players can immerse themselves in the game across a variety of modes and engage in strategic turn-based combat using over 60 characters from the show.
In One Punch Man - The Strongest, players can expect to follow the tale of Saitama as he grapples with boredom given that he can often defeat enemies with just one punch. Players will be able to relive the original story and come across familiar faces as well apart from Saitama himself.
SYBO, the developers behind the hit mobile app Subway Surfers that pops up all over the place on social media, has launched its Play2Plant event with the aim to help combat climate change. Sure, playing video games is a lot more interesting than earth-friendly activism, but where else are we meant to play them?
Kicking off the event with a first-time massive billboard in New York's Times Square, SYBO is relying on its 150 million active monthly players to get in-game and virtually run as far as they can. The developers are asking for runners to post content on Tik Tok using SYBO's custom sound to raise further awareness, but those uncomfortable with doing so will be providing more than enough help by simply playing.
It can be extremely difficult to fit exercise into a day-to-day schedule even though it is a vital activity, so video games like Pokemon GO! and Ring Fit that make it into a compelling game aren't given the amount of credit they deserve, and now Minnesota-based studio Glossbird Inc has announced its debut mobile fitness game, Fitment.
Whilst some of the bigger exercise games go for the professional, personal trainer vibe, Fitment instead opts for a cutesy, cosy experience, with Glossbird explaining some inspiration came from Animal Crossing and Duolingo. Who hasn’t wanted to work out with a lifesized owl providing encouraging hoots?
Odyssey Interactive has recently announced details of its debut title, a free-to-play cross-platform 3v3 combat sports-inspired game Omega Strikers. Players will take part in fast-paced, hectic matches where the aim is to score goals whilst smashing opponents out of the way.
The gameplay unfolds in a small arena with two goals at either end, where each team dukes it out to be the first to get at least five points whilst also leading by two by scoring goals with a hockey puck. A relatively straightforward concept, that gets a lot more hectic when each playable striker has a set unique set of skills to powerfully strike the ball, control the arena, or when all else fails, just fire opponents straight off the edge.
Since its release at the beginning of September, NetEase’s survival shooter Lost Light has picked up a tremendous amount of steam, attracting over one million players and hitting the top 10 free games in multiple countries. In its first major update, Lost Light introduces a new event, gun skins and a rainy weather combat system.
This first patch brings the inaugural Lost Light Dog Tag Collector Competition, which runs from 16th September through to the 18th. By defeating enemies in the game, players can collect points to compete for a premium membership. Points are awarded based on the enemy defeated; a Maurader grants 1, a Raymond Squad member 2, and a Firefly is 5, with an additional 1 point per tag if they are successfully taken from the battlefield. A busy weekend awaits.
One Punch Man - The Strongest faithfully adapts the hit anime into a mobile RPG, now open for pre-registration
MOONTON Games has officially announced its strategy RPG titled One Punch Man - The Strongest, landing on iOS and Android on September 22nd. Eager fans can sign up during the pre-registration event in the US and EU regions to score special launch rewards and other in-game goodies.
In One Punch Man - The Strongest, players can enjoy the best-selling Japanese anime series in turn-based combat on mobile.

PUBG Mobile has introduced a brand new map and game mode as part of its massive Version 2.2 Update. The new map is called Nusa, a beautiful tropical paradise just waiting to be littered with bullet casings and grenades.
Nusa is a tropical tourist island map that measures 1x1 km. This small map means that combat will be a lot more frequent and hectic, with battles likely breaking out immediately after landing. Undoubtedly, that will lead to shorter battles, which will be a boon for those with a packed schedule.
