How do we deal with nostalgia?

Gamers are not generally known for their tender sensibilities or for fully exploring the more emotional end of the spectrum that the medium has to offer. And yet nostalgia, that warm, fuzzy callback to happy memories or experiences in our past, is a force to be reckoned with, both in the way we play videogames and the way they are marketed. So let’s talk about it!

IGN put up an interesting article, discussing the way gamers are affected by this powerful feeling. It’s a pretty emotional, reflective, and occasionally critical journey through “The Blue Fields of Nostalgia“, and it features the thoughts of legendary creator Ron Gilbert, Night Dive CEO Stephen Kick, and several of GOG.com’s prominent people, among others. Go ahead and give it a read, but keep a pack of hankies at the ready.

So how does nostalgia factor in your own experiences? Does it dictate your gaming habits? What are some of the most evocative gaming moments that you still cherish? Feel free to share, nobody’s judging here. After all, it’s totally normal to cry at the end of Cinema Paradiso AND Grim Fandango. Totally.

CD PROJEKT RED, creators of The Witcher series of games, just announced the upcoming arrival of a new playable faction in GWENT: The Witcher Card Game — Nilfgaard.

Part of a major content update for the game, Nilfgaard introduces a playstyle focused on maintaining control over the battlefield.

The update expands the number of cards available in the game by over 60 — new additions also include faction-specific cards for Northern Realms, Scoia’tael, Skellige and Monsters, as well as neutral cards usable by every faction.

Time to replay the updated first Day of the story.

Kona, the atmospheric thriller where you investigate surreal happenings while surviving the harsh Canadian snowstorms is coming out of In Development in March!

Set in a Northern Canadian village during the 1970s, Kona is a first-person puzzle-solving experience, interspersed with more intense gameplay elements. Today, the opening part that’s been available In Development, got updated into its polished, final version that will be in the finished game.

The main reason for this update, according to developers Parabole, is to give anyone who had already completed it the opportunity to go back and replay that segment for a usable save game ahead of the March release. It also implements plenty of tweaks to the story and overall presentation, which will give the complete game a more cohesive feel.
In preparation of the full version’s arrival, the price for Kona has also been adjusted accordingly. Of course, the price change doesn’t affect current owners.

So put on your warmest mittens and return to the frozen, surreal landscapes of Konaa to experience that first Day in all its updated glory!
The full game will be released in March, DRM-free on GOG.com.
