This week in indie and other games of interest, we have an update on Gray Matter, some free-to-play titles, and a couple demos for you to try out.
Also of note: Iceberg Interactive’s announced the release of the bundle British Horror Pack consisting of Dark Fall: The Journal Classic Edition, Dark Fall: Lights Out The Director’s Cut Edition, and Barrow Hill; Slitherine has digitally released History: Great Battles – Medieval earlier than the physical disc; and there’s a zombie game titled Zombie Driver which has you pulling a Rebecca Gayheart on the undead with your vehicle.
Loads more is through the jump. Be prepared. It’ a massive wall of text and bullets.

During the course of the week, loads of indie games, less mainstream titles and those point-and-click adventures you are always hearing about, sometimes get lost in the shuffle -what with news on Uncharted 2 and Modern Warfare 2 happening every three minutes or so.
That’s why, much like the MMO news round-up, we’ve decided to remedy this by giving you a heads up on news, demos, patches, announcements, trailers, screens and other doodads pertaining to these games that you missed out on during the week.
Yes, it’s all here for you in one post! See how much we love you guys? Another wall of text for the win!
While not comprehensive, since there are loads of this sort out there, we will do our best to be as thorough as possible.
Read on past the break for the first of, hopefully, many “Indie and other games of interest” post.

Drakensang: The River Of Time has been announced by dtp entertainment, and is expected for early 2010 release on PC.
Not much is known about the game at this point, other than the fact it’s a prequel to Drakensang: The Dark Eye.
One thing is for sure though: expect more of the cool medieval music that keeps us RPG fans all of a tizzy.
More over at the official website.

Eurogamer’s posted first details of Otherland, a dtp-developed MMO based on the books of American author Tad Williams.
It’s out in 2010. As the site puts it:
Otherland takes place in a near future where the super-rich have their own private virtual worlds on the net, peopled both by AI, and unwitting humans who don’t know that what they’re experiencing isn’t real.
The screens look bonkers. Take a look.

German site 4players has put up a handy chart of all the announced games to be shown in the press conferences at Games Convention this week, and it’s not looking too shabby.
Expect surprises, especially from Sony. Very useful, that: bookmark it.
Update: EG.de’s got a list too. Can never have too many lists.

Big up the dtp. The German company has been granted Xbox 360 publisher status. There’s no confirmation of console projects as yet, however.
“This is a crucial step on our path to becoming a multi-platform publisher. Our first Xbox 360 title will be announced shortly”, said COO Markus Windelen. “Products for the next generation consoles and further international expansion are important milestones for dtp. So far we have been publishing our games mainly on PC and the Nintendo systems; several Wii titles are in the works. Thanks to our newly gained Xbox 360 publisher status we are able to sharpen the image of our new release line-up for the purpose of successful international distribution.”

This is probably the start of something fairly awful. According to this, dtp is releasing a DS game based on the TV show Germany’s Next Top Model. Apparently players use the stylus to pose, walk on the catwalk, and apply makeup. If it’s popular, you can expect local versions to pop up in every country on earth, so for God’s sake don’t buy it, German people.
