Loading Studios has released an early demo of its in-development, first-person tower defence effort, Space Nomads. You can download the demo from the game’s newly launched Indiegogo campaign, which is after CAD $60,000. Be aware that it is probably far from representative of the finished product, but if it takes your fancy the indie is offering a number of incentives to help out with the Linux, Mac and PC title.

Civilization 5: Brave New World has a new video available from E3, which focuses diplomacy which is apparently a big deal in the game as in life. I’d fail miserably and just launch an all out war with my neighbors. This is why I don’t play strategy games: I am horrible at them. Anyway, watch the trailer below. Brave New World is expected in North America on July 9 and elsewhere on July 12.

This week’s Humble Bundle sale stars 11 bit Studios, developer of Anomaly Warzone Earth, which also happens to be the headline game. The DRM-free, cross-platform, pay-what-you-want package also includes Anomaly Warzone Earth: Mobile Campaign, Sleepwalker’s Journey, Funky Smugglers and – for those who pay more than average – a bonus copy of Anomaly Korea and a pile of digital content. As ever, you decide where you money goes – charities, indie devs, the organisers or a split between all three.

It’s a little hard to tell when you’re looking at multiplayer in an RTS game, but Sega has solved this dilemma by occasionally splitting this Company of Heroes 2 trailer into four individual views. I am not 100% certain this tactic is helpful, but here you go anyway.

Oh hey, so you remember when we reported that pre-orders for Divinity: Dragon Commander had opened? It turns out Larian Studios and GOG.com changed their minds at the last moment, and that didn’t happen. The RPG is now scheduled for an August 6 launch; pre-orders have actually opened; and to make up for the delay it now comes with a free copy of classic 1994 RPG Master of Magic. Divinity: Dragon Commander goes for $40.
