Paranautical Activity Available Now for Xbox One

Mother Teresa once said, “Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin,” and we here at Digerati Distribution think she must have been talking about this very game. Those of you that are scholars of gaming scandal may be aware of Paranautical Activity's somewhat chequered past – innocent mistakes were made, some hot-headed words uttered, offence taken, retribution duly enacted. The game lay languishing in limbo, potentially unable to realize its true full potential. A talented creator fell on his sword in a sacrificial act, angel investors Digerati stepped in and bought the rights for the game and it was thus rescued from the sin bin. Search for... Read more

ARK: Survival Evolved Brings Official Mods to Xbox One

Back when the ARK: Survival Evolved Dev Kit launched in August, I don't think anyone could have anticipated the amount of participation we would see or the sheer creativity that would be displayed in mods.  Yet, here we are two mod contests later, looking at a phenomenal display of talent. From mods that allow you to survive in outer space, to NPC characters that live in the wild, to huge new maps that put an alternate twist on ARK’s environments, there is no shortage of imagination and ingenuity. When I first opened the development kit and began creating Primitive+, I only had one goal in mind: Provide people with a more immersive experience by expanding upon the primitive nature of...

The Rhythm is Gonna Get You This Summer with 140 for Xbox One

Please allow me to introduce you to 140, a challenging minimalistic rhythm-based platformer headed to Xbox One this summer! I made 140 as a pet project in my spare time whilst also working as lead puzzle designer at Playdead (developer of Limbo). It features music by my friend and co-worker Jakob Schmid. At its heart, 140 is an old school platformer set in a world of abstract colorful graphics, but it has a musical twist. You’ll need to overcome obstacles that are controlled by an energetic, yet melancholic, electronic soundtrack, meaning you’ll need a heightened sense of rhythm to sync up your every move and jump to the music. 140 was originally released for PC and Mac OS in...

Achievement Unlocked: 10 Years – Thank You, Xbox 360

Last November, we celebrated a major milestone, as the Xbox 360 console turned 10 years old. The Xbox 360 helped redefine an entire generation of gaming at Microsoft. I am incredibly proud of all of the work and dedication that went into development of the Xbox 360 hardware, services and games portfolio over the last decade. And I’m grateful to the fans for their continued passion and support. Franchises like Gears of War were born on the 360, and established blockbusters like Halo really came into their own during this console generation. Xbox 360 was also the foundation for industry-leading technical innovation like Kinect, and the start of system updates and dashboard refreshes... Read more

It will all culminate in an assault on a sham construction site, followed by an attempt to kill the Mafia lieutenant running this part of the city, and finally a sitdown with Lincoln’s three underbosses, who are all vying for control of...
