SMITESMITE XBOX ONE

New Smite Goddess Persephone Joins the Battleground on Xbox One

Persephone, Queen of the Underworld, claims her throne in the exciting new Smite update available now on Xbox One! As the daughter of Zeus and Demeter, Persephone’s fate was often decided by others. So when she saw her chance to act alone, Persephone took it. Hades offered Persephone a not-so-simple choice: a seed of a pomegranate, grown in the underworld. Persephone was clever. She understood what was being offered. Those who eat the food of the underworld are bound to it and must return. So, for the first time, Persephone took control of her life -- and her throne in the underworld. Persephone is Queen of the Underworld, but really only in title. She doesn’t aspire to the...

Train Sim World 2020 Arrives Today on Xbox One

Winning is a slippery concept, something seen everywhere in today’s gaming culture. Gone are the days when everything was about getting the fastest time or the highest accuracy; to any one of us winning could mean something different - collecting all the achievements, perfecting a flawless run or something as personal building a castle in Minecraft that you think is beautiful. For Train Sim World, winning is about accuracy and control, not speed – which makes it far more challenging than a simple race. Train Sim World has always had a scoring system but for the Train Sim World 2020 update we wanted a system that reflects the demands on real rail drivers and engineers while also...

Demon Pit is a Savage Arena Shooter and Homage to Classic FPS Games of the 90s

Demon Pit is a fast-paced FPS arena shooter, inspired by the genre classics of the 1990s. The gameplay design work and graphics were done by Paul Conway, and I (Sam Redfern) did all the programming. Although we’ve been friends for several years, due to the vibrant local developer community here in Galway, Ireland, and although we have both been developing games for 15+ years, we haven’t previously worked together. Demon Pit was initially prototyped during a Game Jam in late 2017. The first iteration was called Night of the Pumpkins, with evil pumpkins chasing the player in lieu of hellspawn, due to the game jam’s “Nature’s Revenge” theme. It was a janky demo with only two...
