Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death is now available through Xbox Live Arcade and PC. The game is an homage to blockbuster films, comic book heroes, and action games with its focus on “relentless high-octane combat, exotic and danger-filled environments and epic set pieces.” Plus, it has its tongue placed firmly inside its cheek. Players take on the role of Marlow Briggs, a no-nonsense hero who has “never shied away from danger or trouble,” as he runs about Central America in a quest to defeat an industrial evil. To make matters worse – or more exciting, depending – he is bound to an ancient Mayan Death Mask sidekick “who’s had no-one to talk to for 2000 years.” Awesome. Developed by Zootfly, Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death is available now for £9.99. Launch trailer is below.

Terraria will be released at retail, according to Publisher 505 Games, because it missed out on sales being released digitally. The digital version has moved 2 million units, but 505 hopes a physical release will help pad sales after being released in more retail-centric markets. “Different territories have different digital acceptance,” said head of global brand Tim Woodley. “We’re releasing Terraria in a box in September as we think the lack of digital uptake in France, Germany, Italy etc is prohibiting sales. Terraria has done incredibly via digital, but most of the numbers are from the US.” The game has sold 110,000 units in Japan with most of the sales coming from retail. Thanks, MCV,
