Destiny 2 Hands-on: Hunting the Cabal in Bungie’s Ambitious Shooter Sequel

As soon as we dove into our hands-on demo of Destiny 2's story-driven campaign, our Warlock Guardian's Ghost asked, “What are the Cabal doing to the Traveler?” The artificial intelligence companion was referring to an enormous enemy craft that'd attached itself, Facehugger-like, to the mysterious, moon-like entity central to Destiny’s mythology. It was a disturbing image, especially for fans who spent much of their time in the original Destiny socializing beneath this sacred sphere. As that faithful following knows, the Traveler isn't just one of the series' most iconic symbols, but also the keeper of the Light, the powerful gift granted to the Guardians. Desecrating the Traveler... Read more

Looter-Shooter Shadow Warrior 2 Available Now on Xbox One

Shadow Warrior 2 is a work of love and fathered by Flying Wild Hog, a company of game industry veterans with expertise in first-person shooters. For eight years the team shared the passion of making games with you guys, starting in 2009 with Hard Reset. Over time we think we've nailed the unique aspects of the FPS genre, from movement and weapons to level and character design. We worked hard to make our game as crisp, neat, and responsive as humanly possible. That's why we were so excited when Devolver Digital approached to take a spin at remaking Shadow Warrior. A few years later we added another chapter to Lo Wang's story. Shadow Warrior 2 is a mélange of a looter-shooter and classic,... Read more

Physics-Based Puzzle Game Claybook Coming Soon to Xbox One

After nearly two years of development, we're excited to announce our studio’s first game: Claybook, a clay simulation puzzle game. In Claybook, both the environment and the characters are made from deformable clay. Everything has a permanent effect on the world around you, but your clay's shape changes as well; the characters and world is in constant interaction with each other. During early development, we noticed our unique clay world opened a whole new set of possibilities for game mechanics. It took some experimenting with all the combinations to find the ones that fit together best. For example, our characters could always carve holes into walls, but this mechanic became much more...
