NGames, a leading online games publisher, has today revealed more of the godly characters set to play a major role in Divines of the East – a brand new free-to-play side-scrolling RPG coming soon to Game321.com.
Divines of the East is an upcoming free-to-play side-scrolling RPG 2D browser game that throws players into an ancient world brought to life with gorgeous, painstakingly hand-drawn graphics inspired by ancient Asian mythology. Strange and powerful creatures, Eastern-themed locations, and an exciting storyline are all awaiting players in Divines of the East; an RPG set to offer gamers a thrilling and truly unique taste of the Orient.
Players take on the role of Shennong’s reincarnation. Shennong was so popular in life that he made the gods jealous, provoking them to use his soul to bind the seals of the Devils of Five Elements instead of allowing him to reincarnate. When Shennong was eventually freed, the seal was broken and the Devils were free to roam again.
Luckily, where there is darkness there is often light, and where there is evil there is good. Today, publisher NGames has released a first look at the Gods of the Five Elements, who will each play an important part in Shennong’s perilous new life in Divines of the East.
The Metal God – otherwise known as the God of Justice – has the appearance of a rooster and is often found soaring across the skies on his two dragons. Formerly known as Rushou, Metal God is the White Emperor Shaohao’s trusty support and is in charge of the autumnal season. Rumours say Metal God lives in Mount You, which is surrounded by rich amounts of jade to the south and an abundance of relagar, aka Ruby Sulphur, to the north.
The Wood God, formally known as Goumang, is the God of Humanity and a descendant of the White Emperor Shaohao. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Wood God is in charge of the growth of trees, including taking care of the Holy Tree, Mulberry. Guomang’s femal apprentice, Linger, is the only known descendant of the Wood Clan.
As the grandson of the Yellow Emperor, Xuanming – or Water God, as he is now known – is a force to be reckoned with. Water God commands great power over water, wind, and plagues, and although his appearance may seem strange, there is no denying the wisdom and strength of this God of Knowledge.
A mythological character in China, the Fire God, formerly known as Zhurong, stands on two fire dragons and has flaming scales all over his body. According to records, he is the one who passed down the tinder and taught mankind how to use fire – a story that has given him the nickname, God of Gifts.
The Earth God is a mysterious deity. Leader of the Five Element Gods, little is known about the man formally known as Houtu, except that he commands great respect from his peers. His calm demeanour and attitude make one of the most trustworthy gods in Divines of the East, which is probably why his followers have nicknamed him God of Truth.
Divines of the East is coming soon to Game321.com. Publisher NGames will be releasing more information in the coming weeks.
Gamers can enjoy a variety of free online games, including popular anime MMO’s, Pockie Ninja II Original and Pockie Pirates, on Game321 now:http://www.game321.com

Throughout the After Earth gaming experience, players must show no fear as they dodge attacks and collect hidden and unique artifacts to enhance the game experience.

Father and son must learn to work together and trust one another if they want any chance of returning home.

Chilean game developer Syrenaica today announces the upcoming launch of its first title, Evilot, on May 15th. A hybrid of two popular genres,Evilot is a puzzle defense game where players command the forces of Count Dolfus. He’s a somewhat-evil overlord who merely wants to retire in peace, but is forced to defend his treasure from the army of heroes and do-gooders determined to conquer his castle (and steal all his loot). The game will launch first on iOS for $0.99, with Android, PC, Mac, Ouya and Linux versions planned for the coming months.
Accessible and familiar, Evilot’s 50 levels are set up on a grid with your forces defending individual lanes from opponents racing towards the treasure piled high behind you. However, gameplay goes beyond the traditional “set it and forget it” tower defense mechanic with the addition of a puzzle-based level-up system. Place three units next to each other in a column or row and they combine to create a more powerful, leveled-up unit. Keep units tightly packed for more powerful upgrades, or spread them out for a weaker, but wider defensive spread. It’s a compelling twist on tower defense that is easy to play, yet difficult to master.
- Challenging, fast-paced gameplay
- Unique puzzle defense mechanics and level-up system
- 50 levels across 5 diverse territories
- 15 playable defender units and 5 special summons
- Original orchestral soundtrack specially composed for Evilot

In Cello Fortress, up to four players play against a live cellist. So how does the cello control the game? In other music games, the musician would simply play an existing song and get points on how well he imitated it. No gameplay choices, no original music. Not in Cello Fortress: here a real cellist controls the game by improvising original music. This new trailer shows what controls the cellist has to defend his fortress against the players:
Cello Fortress is a unique mix of a live cello concert and a computer game. Up to four players from the audience play a twin-stick-shooter using game controllers. They attack cannons, which are controlled by the cellist.Joost van Dongen, cellist and creator of Cello Fortress, explains the experience from the point of view of the cellist: “The challenge is to not only control the game in the right way, but also play good music while doing so. Just quickly skipping between the various attacks would result in horrible music, so I really need to think ahead a bit and make the music flow fluently from attack to attack. Add to this that it is all improvised, which means that I need to come up with the melodies while playing, and it becomes clear what a challenge this game is for the cellist. The result works brilliantly: playing, hearing and seeing Cello Fortress in action is quite a show!“Cello Fortress is currently touring. In the meanwhile, the game is also still being developed and improved further.For more info on the controls of Cello Fortress, check this blogpost.

We all know that on May 21 Microsoft is revealing its next generation console which is codenamed XBox Durango. We know the boys at Microsoft will use this time to probably announce other hardware news like they are always known to do.
New hardware always means a slash in prices. The guys over at DealNews.com dug up the latest deal data to find out. They dug up deal data that consoles usual have to find out a percentage drop price that consoles usual have around the arrival of the newer consoles.
It makes big since that the Xbox 360 4GB model could be as lows as $78 dollars when you do the math. The only thing is rumors are also out that Microsoft may actually keep the console selling for $99.
If Microsoft does decide to make this move and slash Xbox 360 prices, it could mean big business for Microsoft in the last years of the XBox 360. They could also potentially gain XBox fans who have been curious about trying a Xbox console.
