Girls Make Games 2018 Recap: Celebrating Girls in Gaming

Posted by on Aug 16, 2018

One moment from Demo Day stands out. A girl had just imitated a Blobfish swimming, to explain why her team, The Mystery Squirrels, had selected the unusual-looking creature as its protagonist for their game, Detective Blobfish.

The room, which included senior leaders from PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo and Caffeine, shared a laugh. This moment exemplifies to me not only the joy in games themselves, but the way the industry came together around Girls Make Games.

Breaking the Silence on The Quiet Man

Posted by on Aug 16, 2018

I’d like to share with you some of the latest updates on The Quiet Man, a title I’ve been working on with the talented Human Head Studios team for quite a while now. The Quiet Man is priced at $14.99 and can be completed in a short concise amount of time – approximately three hours.

Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise, Out October 2 on PS4

Posted by on Aug 15, 2018

You stand in the middle of the decrepit city of Eden, a lone source of civilization in a post-apocalyptic, dusty wasteland and nothing will come between you and the love of your life.

As you jog through the alleyways on your way to recover parts for a broken dune buggy, you’re approached by a wild group of mx1uscled men wearing mohawks straight out of the 80s, intent on starting a fight to the death. Punches, kicks, a scream of “ATATATATATATA” as you unload your charged fists into the torso of a single adversary, then the whisper, “Omae Wa Mou Shindeiru.” (“You are already dead.”)
