New Devespresso and Headup Collaboration:

Strategic Fantasy Adventure with Roguelike Elements from the Makers of

12 February 2019 Devespresso and Headup join forces for the release of Devespresso's newest single-player adventure Vambrace: Cold Soul. The roguelike fantasy adventure focusses on rich story telling and deep strategy, and will come to PC and Mac on 25th April, with Nintendo Switch™, PlayStation®4 and Xbox One following in Q3 2019.

Vambrace: Cold Soul follows Devespresso Games' Korean indie horror hit The Coma: Recut. Coma represents a major departure from the survival adventure mechanics of their previous title. For Vambrace, the team instead reveals a gothic fantasy tale from the minds of Minho Kim and T.L. Riven. The game features multi-class party building mechanics, punishing roguelike expeditions, and an immersive narrative with high replayability. Vambrace also boasts Minho's signature hand-illustrated graphics that is sure to please 2D and retro game enthusiasts.

You play as Evelia Lyric, bearer of the Aetherbrace and the only human capable of entering the cursed city of Icenaire. You must choose party members who will lend their unique strengths to your cause. Embark on expeditions and use perceptive allies to avoid traps and strange encounters. Leverage the strengths of fighters and magic wielders to survive deadly combat. Stock well and discover paths that will allow you precious time to recuperate in camps. The surface of Icenaire is cold and unforgiving, so you will need to use every advantage you can muster to survive!

Windscape - Homage to "The Legend of Zelda" coming to consoles and PC on 27th March

Open-World Adventure Game's Full Release for Nintendo Switch™, Xbox One and PC

29 January 2019 As a huge fan of "The Legend of Zelda", "Secret of Mana" and "Golden Axe Warrior", the German game developer Dennis Witte has always wanted to create his own game which contained elements of all of them. In 2016 his dream started taking shape with the help of Headup, when his "Herzensprojekt" Windscape was released into Early Access on Steam.

The result was a first person exploration adventure with elements of modern crafting and sandbox games, where you explore a beautifully handcrafted fantasy world, fight monsters, interact with NPCs, solve quests and puzzles.

Now, almost three years later, Dennis' hard work and passion as well as the extremely helpful feedback from the community (Thank you!) has led us here: Windscape is leaving Early Access on 27th March and will also be released on Nintendo Switch™ and Xbox One.
