Making of The Walking Dead: The Telltale Definitive Series

Here we are at the end of an era. The Walking Dead: The Telltale Definitive Series has just been released and just like that The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series will be laid to its third and final rest. Its surreal to me that this is all coming to an end as my own personal journey with this series is a long and emotional one. I started playing the game as a fan who was already gaga for Robert Kirkman’s amazing comic book - it was an added bonus that my brother, Sean Ainsworth, was working on the game as well. Thanks to Sean, I became personally involved when my likeness was used for the character of Eddie in 400 Days. Eventually, I became part of the team and got to author the...

Kiss or Kill Key Art CONSOLES

Gaijin Charenji 1: Kiss or Kill Available Now on Xbox One

The driving idea behind the creation of Gaijin Charenji 1: Kiss or Kill (aka Kiss or Kill) is to surprise the player. So, we decided to make a shoot-em-up that lets players choose to kiss or to kill enemies (we also inserted many Easter eggs and references to classic games throughout). Two years ago when we started the project, our intention was to make an simple arcade game, but if you wanted to achieve a great score, you'll find some challenge. That being said, we really think that Kiss or Kill is atypical and original; imbued with the author's vision. In Kiss or Kill we offer to players the opportunity to make love and not war. Because just creating a game is good but not... Read more: Gaijin Charenji 1: Kiss or Kill Available Now on Xbox One

To Valhalla! A Look at the Norse-Themed Niffelheim, Coming Soon to Xbox One

Every Viking’s goal was to fight in glorious battles, and earn their place in Valhalla upon their death, and our game, Niffelheim, asks, “What if you died in battle, but were denied your place in the mighty hall of Odin? What would you do to force your way in?” And so that’s the backstory that’s driving you in our game, (we’re Ellada Games, by the way, in case we forgot to mention that) which mixes adventure, dungeon crawling, crafting, exploration, and puzzle-solving, all set in a Norse-themed “after” world. There are a lot of elements to our game, but at its core, Niffelheim is all about exploring and surviving in a harsh world, both above- and below ground. In the... Read more: To Valhalla!

A Creature in the Well Presentation: Snippets from the Cutting Room Floor

Hey, guess who? It’s me, Adam Volker. Do you know who I am? Nope? Didn’t think so. I am a Creative Director at an indie development studio called Flight School Studio. We’re headquartered in beautiful, hot, Dallas, Texas, but I work out of our smaller branch in beautiful, French Montreal, Canada. Together with some of our friends at the Dallas office, my buddy Bohdon Sayre and I made a game called Creature in the Well -- available now with Xbox Game Pass and for sale on the Microsoft Store for Xbox One. It’s a top down, hack ‘n’ slash pinball game. It’s a weird, comic-booky-art adventure with fire in its belly. What I wanted to talk about isn’t necessarily how we came to...
