The Future of Atlas on Xbox Game Preview, Available Today on Xbox One

October 9, 2019
When I talk to players about Atlas, there’s one phrase I often hear: “Atlas could be my perfect game.” As a developer, it’s very exciting to hear so many people express that opinion.

We Visit Afterparty’s Hell One More Time Before Its October 29 Release with Xbox Game Pass

October 8, 2019
We don’t want to surprise anyone, but the Hell of Afterparty can be a little messed up. At a recent preview event in San Francisco, developer Night School Studio gave us the opportunity to sit down with the game largely as players will get to experience it in just a few short weeks when it comes to Xbox One and with Xbox Game Pass on October 29. Things start off at an end-of-college mixer that evokes awkward coming of age humor of movies like “Booksmart” and shows like “Freaks and Geeks.” It’s a smart, almost horror movie oriented intro —...
