Scandinavian crunch: Pid developer Might and Delight goes its own way

Crunch Crunch On January 12, 1914, Henry Ford stopped making his employees work more than eight hours in a day. Twelve years later he made Saturday a resting day, putting a workweek at 40 hours. Before long, his competitors followed suit. It turned out that a shorter workweek made machinists not only more efficient — to the point where they produced more cars than they had before — the workers also stayed with the factory for far longer, meaning less time had to be spent teaching new employees. A few decades earlier, in Germany, industrialist Ernst Abbé shortened the hours from nine to eight at his optics factories in Jena, and noticed that they produced more microscopes. Thirteen years later, the German-American psychologist Hugo Münsterberg summarized the experiment:...

Shelter designers toy with Tamagotchi-styled prequel

Shelter developer Might & Delight is bringing to life a prequel to the badger-based title, influenced by Tamagotchi simulation games, lead designer Andreas Wangler stated in a postmortem posted on Gamasutra. Little information was offered up regarding Nurture, which is still currently in its experimental phase; However, its development follows on from the lessons learned throughout the creation of its predecessor. While the studio's best known work may be platformer Pid, Shelter represents a more casual and accessible path for the developers to experiment with. "The main idea then was to develop something that commercially would work better, that spoke to a wider audience, almost casual. Pid had shown itself to be a game aimed at a narrow hardcore audience," said Wangler. "Well, now...

BlackBerry plans to lay off approximately 4,500 employees, it announced today, predicting a net operating loss of approximately $950 million to $995 million for second quarter fiscal 2014.

At Comic-Con, optimism for future of video game movies

That was the theme of a panel today at Comic-Con, that asked whether we are emerging into a "golden age" of video game movies. The panel featured representatives working on movie projects including Agent 47, Mortal Kombat, Deus Ex, Dead Space and Need For Speed. They said that poorly scripted films, like Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li (pictured above) should no longer be the norm. One indicator of impending change, according to various speakers on 'Video Games to Movies: Is the Golden Age Upon Us?,' is that Hollywood execs understand video games much more intimately than in the past. "What happened with comic books in the past is going to happen with video games," said Adrian Askarieh, producer of the forthcoming Agent 47, and of the much-maligned Hitman movie (2007). "People...

DuckTales Remastered trailer visits the snowy Himalayas

A new trailer for WayForward's HD remake of the classic DuckTales platformer shows off the new and improved Himalayas stage. Narrated by sort-of-ace pilot Launchpad McQuack and laden with snow-related puns, the trailer shows the sort of obstacles Scrooge and players can expect to face in their quest for the Crown of Genghis Khan. Aside from poor traction on the slippery ground, the local wildlife, like the giant spiders and mountain goats, will attack on a whim. The remade Himalayas level will also feature a confrontation with Scrooge's Scottish nemesis, Flintheart Glombgold. DuckTales Remastered hits Wii U eShop, Steam and PlayStation Network on Aug 13, and Xbox Live on Sept 11.
