Dansk virksomhed bag verdenskendt lejemorder slår til igen

IO Interactive har for næsen af internationale giganter sikret sig rettighederne til at føre James Bond ind i spilindustrien. Det er et kæmpe scoop, forklarer Hakan Abrak, adm. direktør i IO Interactive, der opfordrer private og offentlige investorer til at fokusere på spilindustrien, der buldrer frem: ”vi skal have skabt dansk økosystem.”

And Øvbøv! no BAFTA for the space dwarfs in this round.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons took it home in the multiplayer category.
But nice with the nomination regardless. :)

Aaaand First Class Trouble from Invisible Walls also has an Early Access release date. 8th of April 2021.
So it's just around the corner for those guys! :D

I was finally going to play the demo.. buuut just as I finally had time! The demo period ended.

Let's hope it will be an astounding "over night" success. There is certainly potential in the social driven multiplayer games category where things can just explode. But lets see. Fingers crossed!!

A bit of recent gameplay

As a lifetime Alien(s) fan. I guess Aliens Fireteam doesn't look too bad. The scary part of the universe doesn't really seam to hit the mark in my opinion. It's more of a run and gun type of game. Which can be ok! Visuals are cool!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge
Cute with another Ninja Turtles brawler. Never really got into the IP as a kid.. a bit outside my age bracket perhaps. The arcade was pretty cool for it's time though. This looks cute and in the same vein!
I'm game if the kiddo is up for some Turtle brawling. :)

The Game Assembly online open house today!
This is one of the best and most focused gamedev schools in the near region. If not the best?!
For game programmers, game artists, game animators, level designers and technical artists.
They don't cover all the bases, far from. But a great environment for hands on production.

Swedish language skills needed to attend properly.

New IP project from some of the developers bailing CD Project Red. Retro scifi coolnesss!


This is some scifi shit! :cool: Not super relevant to games in general besides the potential for the odd out installation client project. But the Voxon VX1 is just pure magic to behold.

Play at Home 2021 update: 10 free games to download this Spring
https://blog.playstation.com/2021/03/17 ... is-spring/
Image

I actually got a PS4 for free some months ago. Girlfriends kiddo was about to dump it in the trash. So technically it's a saved console. Honestly it has been a bit of a dust collector since my initial time with it. Got to play a bit of God of War and various other games. I hope I find some time to finish it at some point.
But free games for all PS4 owners out there. A lot of them is PSVR based. So clever move on Sony to push free titles out there that requires a VR headset and very possibly selling some of that in the process.
