Another day, another batch of games shipped to stores. Instead of giving them all their own posts, we grouped them, and so far there are announcements for:

Unbound Saga (PSP)

The Unbound Saga video game is based on the recently released comic book of the same name from Dark Horse Comics, a leading publisher of comic books and graphic novels.  Unbound Saga brings the dynamic visual style of the 2D comic world to life in a 3D arcade brawler, where the heroic duo of Rick Ajax and Lori Machete punch, kick and smash their way through level after level of bizarre foe to get to the final show down with “The Maker,” the comic book creator that shapes their every battle.

ith cover art by illustration icon, Joe Linsner (Cry for Dawn, Dark Ivory) original story by comic book veteran Mike Kennedy (Star Wars, Superman, Alien vs Predator) and art by fan-favorite Cliff Richards (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Wonder Woman, The New Thunderbolts), Unbound Saga combines comic book action with button throttling gameplay that leads players through level after level of imaginative landscapes and bizarre foes.

Unbound Saga is rated T for Teen and is available for download on the PlayStation Network for $14.99.

Monato Esprit (PC)

Monato Esprit is a fantasy role-playing game in which players assume the role of winged Archons whose mission is to rid the Dreamworld of an invasion by nightmares. As a unique component of the game, players control the economy by having the exclusive right to sell items in the stores, commanding non-player characters (NPCs) to charge tolls, and performing alchemy to create custom magic items.

Monato Esprit allows users to play the game and level their characters for free, with the option of using MetaTIX for player trades, premium content and in-game purchases. Players can experience Monato Esprit and learn more about MetaTIX by downloading the game at the official website.

“We are excited to be able to present gamers with the official launch of Monato Esprit,” said Michael Williams, CEO of Reality Gap, Inc. “However, players should remember that this is a living, breathing product, and one that will continue to evolve over time. The Dreamworld you see today will not be the one you see in six months. Fans will find new ways to master spells and combat abilities, complete quests, form guilds, as well as participate in the new and robust player-driven economy with MetaTIX.”

MetaTIX is a “virtual currency” players can use to pay for things in place of using real money. Players can buy tix, win tix, trade for tix, or receive tix through sponsorships.

Williams continued, “What makes MetaTIX so unique is that other online games and websites can sign up to use MetaTIX through Reality Gap’s affiliate program, basically ensuring that as more players and online games use this business model, the more valuable MetaTIX will become in the virtual and online world.”
