Telltale to retire their engine after The Walking Dead S4

Telltale have been very busy lately, in-between signing deals with Netflix and tussling with their former CEO. The studio that (gradually) popularised episodic games has a lot on their plate, and now they've got a pretty heavy dessert lined up for once they've finished the upcoming fourth and final Walking Dead game season. According to anonymous sources speaking to Variety (and somewhat supported by job…

Daggerfall for Unity: Now with a beginning, middle & end

My earliest memories of The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall were of fear and excitement at the boundless possibilities of a true fantasy sandbox. Of amazement at the most comprehensive character creation screen I'd ever seen, and of deep annoyance when I managed to fall through the floor and into an endless void in the first minute of the game. I've spent over twenty years waiting…

Shiny: Unity Demo’s Screen-Space Raytraced Reflections

Fancier, more realistic reflections will come as standard in Unity's next major version (screen-space raytraced reflections, if you want to get technical), and we should probably pay more attention to the engine considering it's almost everywhere nowadays. So here, let's come coo over how nicely light reflects around a bedroom in this newly-released tech demo. You can download it to have a fiddle on your…

There's a livestream of the event and…

One For The Weekend: Daggerfall Tools For Unity

Here's something rather natty. Some clever sort has created a thing called Daggerfall Tools for Unity. They describe it as "a code asset which acts as a bridge between Daggerfall's binary data files and Unity3D." What this essentially seems to mean is that if you own a copy of Daggerfall - which Bethesda offer as a free download, bless 'em - you can use Daggerfall Tools…

Selling! No No No… Unity Deny Rumours

Ooh he isn't half an awful gossip, that Ian Video Games! Why, just the other day our Alec said Judith's lad CNET -- you know, shaved head, earring, works in the arches café -- told him Ian had been going around saying Google and some other local teams had been sniffing around, looking at signing up Unity. "Unity!" I tell Ian, "It's you wot needs…

Rumour: The Unity Engine Is For Sale

As in, the whole bally company. Clearly anyone's been able to buy a copy of the engine for yonks. Unity is the go-to gamemaking tool for a vast number of developers, big and small (around three million of 'em, in fact, with Blizzard's Hearthstone its highest-profile title, at least until one of my games comes out), and it was perhaps only a matter of time…
