Interplay Sells Off Descent, Kingpin, Earthworm Jim Etc

Don't call it a comeback. Don't call it, like, three comebacks. Interplay, once renowned as a house of PC ideas, has failed to get back off the ground across various attempts at resurrection, and it seems matters have gone no better for whoever is currently wearing the well-worn skinsuit. 'Interplay' has just announced a firesale of various intellectual properties. Which means that the likes of…

Let’s Not Lose Sight Of The Future

Last week I found myself in two conversations about resurrecting dead games. One was about Homeworld: I'd made a flippant comment about pressuring Relic to do a Kickstarter to make a sequel, and other people agreed.

A version of it originally appeared in PC Gamer as part of their Long Play series, but it's lived at my blog for a couple of years too. This version has a few tweaks to make more time-appropriate.]Sacrifice makes me sad.It’s not…

Good Old Games Give Good Old Answers

We briefly mentioned Good Old Games yesterday, but if you've not heard of it then... well, suffice to say, if you're the kind of fellow who reads this site regularly, then GoG's mooted catalogue of classic game downloads is going to make you a very excited wee PCophile.The retrocentric digi-store, offering DRM-free, cheapie downloads of the likes of Fallout, Sacrifice and Operation Flashpoint, isn't starting…

The Making of: Sacrifice

[Another of my Making Of's from the vault. I was pleased that I got a chance to do this too - it's much easier to get a developer to talk about their previous game when it's one in a series which they've making a sequel to. It just ties into the whole PR cycle. Trying to get an interview just about something outside of that…
