Scourge of the Underkind - alive!
It's been quite a while since we last heard of "Scourge of the Underkind", a game many are eagerly awaiting, but now we have proof the project's not cancelled: a new teaser video has been released, along with some words from author Wayne Ashworth via the game's facebook page.
Judging from the video, the game looks increasingly good, with beautiful pixel art, some neat visual effects, and smooth movement, promising a highly entertaining experience for fans of Alien Breed, Gods, and The Chaos Engine.

Those were some more of 2019's (and 2020's) game developments, in fact we haven't even caught up yet - but we're not even finished with you for now, as we have some...
...Bonus gaming news:
ZGloom: Gloom for Windows and Linux
"Gloom" is a well known first person shooter game on the Amiga, and now it looks it might be conquering new platforms: a C++/SDL2 based reimplementation of the game is under development, currently (2020-02-28) at version 0.1.0, which according to the author's comments has "...still many things missing..." but "...it can play everything I've thrown at it." That sounds awesome. Ports to Windows and Linux are included - but this screams for an AROS port. Anyone?
