Kalimba: The Dark Void DLC and Steam release

Kalimba: The Dark Void

In case you missed this stand-out title when it debuted last year on Xbox One, developer Press Play (Max the Curse of Brotherhood) has brought Kalimba to Steam and with it pushed out some pretty solid DLC across both platforms. Coming in at only $9.99 for the base game, we couldn’t recommend this game more. The Dark Void DLC is available for $5.99 and includes new single player and co-op levels (or you can buy each set separately for $3.99).

Aside from the level packs, Press Play has also added two new game modes:

  • PUMA Mode, which is about speedrunning through levels racing against your friend’s ghosts
  • LLAMA Mode, a game mode designed for competing against your friends in the couch beating various challenges in turn

If you are on Xbox One or have a Steam account (get one, it’s free), we highly recommend picking this game up. Whether you play alone or with a friend, you are sure to love pulling your hair out over the genius level design.

With the upcoming release of Expansion I: The Dark Below for Destiny on 12/09/14, Bungie has also revealed a special edition Sparrow. The EV-30 (aka Tumbler Sparrow) will be available to anyone who purchases the Expansion Pass before January 15th.
