Dev turns The Room 4: Old Sins’ creepy old dollhouse into a gorgeous Lego build
Other / 10. 5. 2021

Lego is (as a year in lockdown with a whole lot to time to assemble plastic bricks has taught me) cool, and developer Fireproof Games’ gorgeously atmospheric The Room puzzle series is, among many other good things, cool too. So it should come as absolutely no surprise to anyone that combining the two results in a very cool thing indeed. The architect of this particular very cool thing is Fireproof Games’ own graphic and motion designer Roger Schembri who, under the name Lego CustardKid, has previously submitted a number of creations to the endlessly impressive Lego Ideas website, including an elaborate ornamental safe inspired by the original The Room. The Room 4: Old Sins’ Dollhouse (as spotted by Kotaku) is Schembri’s most ambitious Lego Ideas build yet, lovingly recreating the game’s deliciously sinister enchanted dollhouse – itself a detailed recreation of The Room 4’s Waldegrave Manor – in impressively miniaturised detail.

VVVVVV Creator’s Next Game Is Entirely Made in Roblox
Other / 10. 5. 2021

The creator of VVVVVV, Terry Cavanagh, has just released his next game — but unlike VVVVVV, you won’t find it on typical storefronts. Instead, in order to play Climb the Giant Man Obby, you’ll need to venture into Roblox. In a blog post, Cavanagh announced the “obby,” which is Roblox shorthand for “obstacle course” (or just a platformer) and a popular genre to make among first-time creators on Roblox. “For the past year or so, I’ve been kinda fascinated by Roblox – a massively popular multiplayer game platform, mostly aimed at kids,” Cavanagh writes. “So recently, I decided to try making a game for it!” [ignvideo url=”https://www.ign.com/videos/2021/02/24/roblox-freeze-tag-trailer”] “I didn’t expect how much I was going to love working in Roblox Studio,” Cavanagh added. “I’ve been working on this on-and-off for about three months, which makes it one of my biggest freeware projects ever.” Cavanagh detailed his development journey with Roblox in a lengthy Twitter thread that goes back to the end of March. The thread offers glimpses of his process of adapting to Roblox’s creation tools as Cavanagh first attempted to recreate the outfit worn by the fellow in the “How do you do, fellow kids?” meme, then turned his…

A New Halo Infinite Trailer Is Being Teased
Other / 10. 5. 2021

It looks like a new Halo Infinite trailer is dropping very soon for those itching to see more Craig the Brute. Halo Infinite’s Joseph Staten took to Twitter to share an update for his week, and it very much looks like he’s teasing a new trailer for the ongoing Master Chief tale.  343 Industries recently stated that it would have more to share on Halo Infinite “soon,” and it looks like “soon” could very well be this month. Even more so with Staten’s follow-up tweet, which you can see below:  Care to guess what the final count will be? — Joseph Staten (@joestaten) May 8, 2021 The “117” is obviously a reference to John 117, also known as Master Chief. Sneaky, sneaky Staten!  I’m personally excited to see more gameplay. When the studio behind Halo Infinite first shared gameplay, the reactions to the inside look were mixed. Some thought it was a lackluster show of the “power” of next-gen technology with the Xbox Series X. In contrast, others were excited that it looked like an authentic Halo experience. For me, I definitely fell in the second camp. While I certainly understand the criticisms, all I got from that gameplay demonstration was heavy Halo Reach…

Creating the Atmospheric In Rays of the Light
Other / 10. 5. 2021

In Rays of the Light is a remake and reimagining of the original 2012 indie game The Light. The initial project was a “test of the pen,” which marked the beginning of my journey in the world of game development. The game contained a general moral concept associated with the danger and harmful consequences of human activity: with endless wars and political struggle, the desire for enrichment, with technical progress, which has a strong effect on our lives, both in a positive and in a negative way. The final message of the story was that Mother Nature will breathe a sigh of relief when humanity as a species disappears from the face of the Earth. The original game was a small sketch with 15-20 minutes of gameplay. The reference for the location was the real-life territory of the Moscow Humanitarian University, in particular, one of its educational buildings. During my student years, I spent a lot of time in this building, which has always impressed me with its seemingly simple but strict monumental design. It was the majestic image of this building that originally inspired the creation of the project. In 2019, it was decided to re-release the project with…

Nine Inch Nails And Animal Crossing: New Horizons Collide With ‘Nine Inch Nooks’
Other / 10. 5. 2021

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is one of the most wholesome games out on the market. Nine Inch Nails is definitely not one of the most wholesome bands, but that doesn’t stop me from simping Trent Reznor and his delectable dark tunes. So when I saw a mashup of the two worlds with a Nine Inch Nooks Closer cover, it was just too weird not to share.  The cover was made by Jenn Welch and is a shot-by-shot remake of Nine Inch Nail’s Closer song. If you’re a fan like I am of Reznor’s music, then you know what the lyrics to this are, so uh, it makes sense then that Welch would use a version of the song without lyrics, instead using vocal sounds from the game when bringing it into the realm of Animal Crossing:  Click here to watch embedded media I’m not going to lie, it’s pretty perfect, especially when you compare it to the original music video for Closer. Is this the crossover I was expecting to see? Not even remotely, but I can tell you that I’m not even close to being mad at it.  Animal Crossing: New Horizons fans have made some pretty epic mashups in the past. We’ve seen that Agatha…

Over 37 million players have downloaded Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End
Other / 10. 5. 2021

Naughty Dog‘s final chapter featuring the exploits of Nathan Drake, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, has been downloaded and played by over 37 million people, the developer has revealed. It’s been five years since the release of one of the PS4’s biggest hits; Uncharted 4. To celebrate the half-decade birthday of one of the last generation’s biggest PlayStation hits, developer Naughty Dog has published a special retrospective blog looking back on the game, sharing some behind-the-scenes notes from its production. One of the most notable factoids in the article reveals that the game has been experienced by over 37 million players around the world – not bad for a platform-exclusive game. Watch on YouTube “We’ve been honored by the reception Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End has received from you, the community, fans, and players,” says Naughty Dog’s Dinah Bakeer in the blog. “As of 2021, over 37 million individual players have downloaded and experienced Nathan Drake’s ultimate adventure.” Impressive, right? It should be noted that not all of these players will have explicitly purchased the game; Uncharted 4 came to PS Plus in April last year, and the title is available as part of the PS Plus collection, too. Sales numbers…

Other / 10. 5. 2021

The next epic entry in the Battlefield franchise has been kept under wraps for quite a while. Recent installments have focused on major historical conflicts like World War I and II, but it’s anyone’s guess as to what EA Dice has in store for the future.

At any rate, this summer just got a whole lot more exciting! The new Battlefield game was first announced towards the end of last year, with an expected launch period set for Holiday 2021.
