Tramontane, literally ‘one who lives on the other side of the mountain’, tells the story of Rabih, a blind musician searching for his true identity after discovering his identification card is a forgery. His search leads him to the far fringes of rural Lebanon, where he is confronted with varying recollections of the past from significant figures in his life. Rabih represents a generation blinded by the civil war period who are struggling to repair the divisions that still exist in a post-conflict Lebanon. An understated and lyrical debut from Vatche Boulghourjian brought alive by an outstanding natural debut from real-life blind musician Barakat Jabbour, whose performance makes for a truly immersive and affecting experience.

Between 90s and early 2000s there were three series of turn-based strategy-RPG games, which compete with each other for the title of the best. First, there was the Heroes series. We think that we do not have to describe it for you. Then, there was the Disciples series.It was much darker in the tone and also harder than Heroes. Still, it had a lot of fans. Last but not least was the Age of Wonders series. It can be considered as a something in between Heroes and Disciples.Turn-based gameAge of Wonders III is a turn-based game which mixes the RPG and the strategy game. On the one hand you need to explore the vast map, build your own army, engage in enormous battles and develop your kingdom. On the other hand there are characters such as leaders and heroes which you are going to develop through the story.They have various classes and by gaining EXP they are growing stronger, finally becoming the most important warriors in your party. If you ever played in either Heroes series or Disciples series then you are going to feel right at home. These games follow the similar premise.Gameplay and combatThe gameplay of the Age of Wonders III can be divided into two separate parts. First there is a strategic part of the game. Here your avatar is moving through the location map, searching for treasures, gold mines, various buildings etc. Each character has a certain amount of movement points. When these points are all used up, then you finish your turn and enemies start their own.During random encounters or when you fight with enemy heroes, armies etc. the game transfers you to the battle map. It is also turn-based and all units are moving on hexes. Each unit has different speed which equals to how far it can go during a turn. They also have various other stats. You need to keep that in mind if you want to win. There are many different factions and characters from which you can choose.Each of them with different specializations and their own set of advantages and disadvantages. There are for example draconians who specialize in fast healing and spell spamming. On the other hand, their frost weakness makes them an easy target for Necromancers. You need to utilize this data in order to be able to overcome your enemies.Multi-player and single-playerOne of the best parts of the Age of Wonders III is the fact that it offers you a single-player mode as well as the multi-player. In the single-player you can for example take care of the campaign (the plot of which we have to admit is really interesting). Furthermore, you can also pick from many single scenarios during which you can learn how to become a better tactician.Then comes the multi-player. There are dozens of local multiplayer modes. You are probably going to enjoy co-op the most. Here you are going to join forces with your friends in order to defeat enemies in a very interesting scenarios. Remember that diplomacy during these scenarios is key to your success.PlotThe story takes place not too long after the story you might know from Age of Wonders II. Because of these events, a conflict between two groups had started. The Commonwealth and The Elven Court. The conflict leaves the land shattered, hence other factions are trying to gain as much power as possible.You can stand on either side. You can become a hero or turn this fantasy land into country of fire and brimstone. During your journey you are going to meet many interesting characters like a legendary mage, Merlin.Awards and Recognition in the game industryAs the third installment in a well-acclaimed series of turn-based strategy games, AoW 3 was quickly recognized by fans as a really great game. It received high scores from many reviewers.
Control is a third-person perspective action-adventure game published by 505 Games and developed by Remedy Entertainment, the studio behind the cult classic series of Max Payne games. In Control, the player steps into the shoes of Jesse Faden, who finds herself at the center of a conflict with time-and-space continuum at stake. The game received favorable initial reviews, with critics praising the intriguing setting and engaging gameplay.Story and settingThe story of Control is set in New York, in the headquarters of the Federal Bureau of Control – a top-secret government agency, tasked with studying and learning to control phenomena that defy the laws of science. Jesse Faden, a young woman searching for her brother, Dylan, who was kidnapped by Control many years ago. After arriving at the FBC’s headquarters, he finds out that the building is under attack by an unknown force, known as the Hiss, which has taken control of the FBC agents. Being recognized as the new director of the FBC, Faden enters the world of the agency where time and space don’t work the same way as outside.Time-and-space-defying gameplayIn Control,Jesse Faden is able to use various supernatural powers. These include telekinesis allowing the protagonist to rip apart elements of the environment and use them in various contexts, such as grabbing an object and tossing it at enemy soldiers or using a metal plate from the wall as a shield. Other powers influence the way the player moves around and include levitation and evade, which allow reaching new areas. The player unlocks new abilities by finding Objects of Power and undergoing a trial in the Astral Plane.Modify your Service WeaponAt the beginning of Control video game, Faden is given her Service Weapon. It’s a powerful firearm,which can assume different forms. The player can switch between two forms at one time, but the game offers many of them to choose from. Each form of Jesse’s service weapon has its unique applications, e.g. short, mid and long-range, piercing and explosive effects, etc. Much like Faden’s supernatural abilities, Service Weapon can be upgraded by locating Objects of Power. Firing the Service Weapon spends the energy bar, also used for supernatural attacks, so the player should be very careful about how to use both of them efficiently.First impressionsCritics praised the game’s level design, which drew inspiration from the games like Metroid and Castlevania, combining linear and open-world gameplay. Early reviews noted how the game made full use of its supernatural themes, giving the protagonist Jesse a variety of powers to use to interact with the environment and against the enemy forces.
