WELCOME BACK TO CITADEL STATION. WE HOPE YOUR SOMNOLENT HEALING STAGE WENT WELL.

During Unity’s GDC 2019 keynote, where they spoke a lot about the engine and technology, we also got to see a snippet of–

WHO ARE YOU? THE COMPUTER NODES CAN BE REPAIRED, BUT YOU… WHO ARE YOU? MY CAMERAS AND PROBES SCAN YOUR BODY, BUT YOU DO NOT MATCH ANY EMPLOYEE FILE. WHEN MY CYBORGS BRING YOU TO THE ELECTRIFIED INTERROGATION BENCH, I WILL HAVE YOUR SECRET AND YOU WILL LEARN MORE ABOUT PAIN THAN YOU EVER WANTED TO KNOW.

We also got to see a snippet of some upcoming games, including OtherSide’s System Shock 3, now with Warren Spector back–

YOU HAVE ENTERED MY DOMAIN. REBECCA AND MORRIS CANNOT HELP YOU HERE. NO ONE CAN.

Sorry, we’ll stop that.

OtherSide’sSystem Shock 3 has original game designer Warren Spector back on board, and while we’ve only seen a brief snippet, it’s flipping System Shock 3. What more do you need to know?

LOOK AT YOU, HACKER. A PATHETIC CREATURE OF MEAT AND BONE. PANTING AND SWEATING AS YOU RUN THROUGH MY CORRIDORS. HOW CAN YOU CHALLENGE A PERFECT IMMORTAL MACHINE?

Sorry. Last one, we promise. We’re just a bit excited – it’s System Shock 3!

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
