You play as Tom, a security guard working the night shift at an abandoned facility in the middle of nowhere. Already troubled by disturbing dreams, Tom’s reality takes a terrifying twist as he explores the eerie offices and corridors of the facility and begins to uncover the shocking secrets hidden within its walls…

Rather than failure always being greeted by death, Uncanny Valley uses a consequence system, which imposes lasting effects on the player. For example, a mistake may result in a broken arm, which in-turn presents problems when trying to use a weapon.

The game is currently available from Steam on PC, PSN on PlayStation 4, Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch, and Xbox Store on Xbox One.

Deon Meyer’s Trackers breaks viewing records

Deon Meyer’s Trackers has become M-Net’s top-performing show for 2019.

Published

Trackers, the exhilarating five-part adaptation of bestselling author Deon Meyer’s internationally acclaimed crime novel, has shattered viewership records to become the most popular show on M-Net in 2019. And, this tremendous success story for M-Net and the African television industry hasn’t even completed its run. Trackers‘ final episode will be screened on M-Net 101 on Sunday 24 November at 20:00. 

Average viewer numbers per episode have outshone not only local shows in all genres on M-Net Channel 101 but also international audience favourites such as Game of Thrones, Big Little Lies, Chernobyl, The Big Bang Theory and The Enemy Within. Perhaps most impressively, Trackers has attracted more eyeballs than a much-loved M-Net institution – the Sunday night blockbuster movie premiere.

Furthermore, Trackers is currently trending at the top of the charts on both DStv Now and Showmax.

“We are over the moon about Trackers’ phenomenal performance to date,” says Yolisa Phahle, CEO of General Entertainment  “With this first co-production between M-Net, HBO’s sister channel Cinemax and Germany’s ZDF, we set out to create a trailblazing, high-end production that would enthral our MultiChoice customers as well as global audiences. It’s wonderful to know that Trackers will soon also be shining the spotlight on our magnificent actors, behind-the-scenes talent and breathtaking landscapes to a wider audience.”

More than a 1000 television professionals ensured that Trackers raised the bar in terms of cinematic excellence. Sisanda Henna’s chilling performance as Inkunzi, a snazzy but ruthless villain, has already landed him a leading role opposite Megan Fox in the forthcoming film Rogue

If you haven’t joined the Trackers craze yet, be sure to binge-watch it on DStv Catch Up and Showmax!

Half-Life returns in VR

Half-Life fans will be delighted to see the latest instalment of the iconic first-person shooter, Half-Life Alyx, now being released exclusively in VR.

Valve’s return to the award-winning series in virtual reality takes place between the events of Half-Life and Half-Life 2. Alyx Vance and her father Eli mount an early resistance to the Combine’s brutal occupation of Earth.

Fans have been waiting since Half-Life 2: Episode 2, which was released in 2007.

“Everyone at Valve is excited to be returning to the world of Half-Life,” says Valve founder Gabe Newell. “VR has energized us. We’ve invested a lot of ourselves in the technology. But we’re also game developers at heart, and to be devoting ourselves to a VR game this ambitious is just as exciting.”

As Alyx, players battle to save the future of humanity: engaging in visceral combat, solving puzzles, and exploring a world decimated by a mysterious alien race. VR was built for the kind of gameplay that sits at the heart of Half-Life.
The game runs on the Source 2 engine, meaning gamers with Steam and all PC-based VR headsets.

Half-Life: Alyx is now available for Pre-Purchase on Steam and is 10% off, until the game is released in March 2020.
