The Never-Ending Design Changes in Neversong, Coming to Xbox One July 16
Other / 2. 7. 2020

In 2009 I made a web game called Coma. I was 18 years old, and had no idea what could happen after you release a game. The game blew up with over 8 million plays, and sent me on a decade long journey of creating bizarre and beautiful indie adventure games. Now, I’m almost 30, and am still baffled at the response to Coma. With the help of my development partner Serenity Forge, we’ve rebuilt the entire Coma-world from the ground up; it’s now called Neversong, and it’s coming to Xbox One on July 16! What is more interesting is how much I’ve changed. My world-view, the stories I prefer telling, and what makes my blood pressure tick up is completely different than when it was still in high school. Similarly, the protagonist of that little Flash game, Pete, has also changed, now being called Peet, and possessing a completely different form than the original Flash sprite. His changes correlate to mine, and I’m sure you can relate. Firstly, the original protagonist in Coma was a silhouetted blob with no key features, and ultimately, an unknown personality. It may sound a tad pretentious, but this was how I viewed myself…

Rewind Time in the Remastered Warframe Update The Deadlock Protocol
Other / 2. 7. 2020

Available today on Xbox One, The Deadlock Protocol is Warframe’s first traditional update of 2020. Unlike the space battle updates Empyrean and Operation Scarlet Spear, The Deadlock Protocol delves into Warframe’s earliest content. Working from home during this trying time, the Digital Extremes development team took on the bold task of re-thinking the game’s first Corpus levels from top to bottom. Full of new and original backstory material revealing how the Corpus Faction came into being, remodeled with state-of-the-art graphics and levels incorporating nimble parkour action, and rich with a newly revamped boss fight and a new Warframe, The Deadlock Protocol is the kind of update players have been asking for. Up-to-date lighting and textures create a new atmospheric feel The Deadlock Protocol, like Chains of Harrow and The Jovian Concord before it, integrates larger-scale story implications into the modern Warframe narrative. You must investigate the Corpus Faction’s desperate ploy to break their board’s political in-fighting. Through discovery, resource collection, and combat, you’ll learn how a small Corpus sub-faction has begun a devious plan to resurrect the faction’s founder, strengthen their armada, and bolster a growing space fleet to deploy against the Sentients and the Tenno. This revival poses an…

Cyberpunk 2077’s Shades Of Gray
Other / 2. 7. 2020

We recently had the amazing opportunity to go hands-on with Cyberpunk 2077, which you can read about in our full playthrough impressions as well as our biggest takeaways article. We also sat down with some of CD Projekt Red’s talented developers, learning more about their creative process and how they approached this ambitious project. One topic that consistently surfaced was the team’s signature shades-of-gray storytelling and how it enhances the experience. During our four-hour demo, we wrestled with who to trust, never feeling completely confident in our decisions or what the consequences would be. If you played CD Projekt Red’s Witcher series, you know this feeling all too well, but with each passing project, the developers only seem to be getting better at keeping you on your toes and making you second-guess your actions. To learn how much care and thought goes into these interactions, we asked lead quest designer Paweł Sasko for more insight into the complicated process.  “It’s a very complex thing,” Sasko says, laughing. “It’s very easy when you design things to just fall into one [extreme] or another, and this is how our production style comes into play.” According to Sasko, every quest gets created with the writer, quest designer,…
