Inside the Halo Wars 2 Panel at Comic-Con 2016

I’ve been a part of the Halo universe since 2003. And to this day, I still feel like the new guy. From my first day at Bungie to this very moment at 343 Industries, I have watched amazingly talented people bring my favorite universe to life and felt honored, and sometimes astonished, that little bits of my work have contributed to the world-building over the last 13 years. So in a way, I never forget what it is to be exposed to that feeling of wonder and newness. To the feeling that your work is additive and that you’ve gone from being a mute witness to a participant. So today at the Halo Wars 2 panel at San Diego Comic Con, it was with wry pleasure and perfect empathy that I... Read more

The History of We Happy Few

Hello from Compulsion Games! We are 21 people based in Montreal, Quebec, who thought it would be a good idea to make a game set in a procedural city about a 1960s English society obsessed with drugs, denial and happiness.  We’ve come a long way - we are only a few days away from releasing We Happy Few on Xbox Game Preview - and we’re still working out exactly what that last sentence means. It was mid-2013 when we started thinking about We Happy Few.  A couple of months before we shipped our first game, Contrast, we were asking ourselves “how can we make a bigger game, with the same or better quality, but keep our team relatively small?”. Linear games of the quality we wanted to... Read more

Here at Bulkhead Interactive we are massively excited to announce the release date for our brand new first-person puzzler, The Turing Test.

The Turing Test will be playable on the show flow at gamescom this August. If you’re in Cologne, make sure to trust... Read more

Kerbal Space Program Now Available for Xbox One

Kerbal Space Program (KSP) has been a labor of love since day one. We all got involved with KSP because we were enchanted with the idea of a space game in which plucky, whimsical characters meet space. The team has grown over the years, and many of the current developers began as players, modders and fans. More importantly, KSP would not be what it is without the input and encouragement of our fans. With KSP available for Xbox One now, we hope that you’ll all enjoy the same wondrous experience we have! The biggest challenge we faced in developing the game is its freedom: the player can build the smallest rover or the largest interplanetary spacecraft, and all parts (from a single... Read more
