Colorfiction has announced that its surrealistic adventure game 0°N 0°W is coming to multiple platforms next year.

The game will make its way to console (PlayStation 4), virtual reality (Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and OpenVR), and mobile (Android and iOS) in 2020. The developer is also awaiting confirmation for a Nintendo Switch release.

The console release of 0°N 0°W will add new content, including additional worlds, achievements, encounters, a new gameplay mode, and more. The PC version will be updated after the console release.

0°N 0°W is currently on sale for two weeks. Players can purchase the title for 30% off on Steam, and 40% off on itch.io.

OnlySP’s Ben Newman awarded the game a Credit (3/5), stating that “0°N 0°W is not for everyone, but it will appeal massively to a gamer who values non-traditional experiences.”

Most recently, Colorfiction released the “relaxing voyage” game Becalm in January. The developer is also working on the thriller title Ode to a Moon. OnlySP spoke to the developer in October 2018 about the inspiration behind the games. Check out the full interview here.

Rhain discovered a long time ago that mixing one of his passions (video games) with the other (writing) might be a good idea, and now he’s been stuck in the industry for over six years with no means of escaping. His favourite games are those with deep and captivating narratives: while it would take far too long to list them all, some include L.A. Noire, Red Dead Redemption (and its sequel), Wolfenstein: The New Order, The Last of Us, and the Uncharted series.

Ubisoft Discusses How Uplay Plus Will Improve Communication With Players

Ubisoft Uplay+

Ubisoft believes that its new subscription service Uplay Plus will help the publisher improve communication with players.

Alain Corre, the executive director of EMEA at Ubisoft, spoke to GamesIndustry.biz where he outlined the vision and strategy for the company’s new subscription service. He explained that Uplay Plus will help boost communication with players, and the feedback it receives will help improve Ubisoft’s games.

“The reason behind our subscription service… it gives more possibilities for our fans to play our games and we can talk to them. We can keep them in our worlds, we can discuss with them and—thanks to what they say and the way they behave—we can feed that back into our games development. When we are in control of that within our ecosystem, we feel it’s beneficial for our fans. That’s ultimately what we want to do; we want to have more contact with them, more interaction, listening more to what they want and improve based on what they say.”

Corre highlighted that Ubisoft will not solely focus its efforts on Uplay Plus; players will still be able to pick up any of the publishers games either physically or as digital downloads. He explained that the company’s strategy moving into a subscription service is to adapt with modern consumer tends of gamers.

“We are still keeping the traditional model whether they buy our games in a store or download them. It’s really a case of offering the possibilities. Consumers are evolving really fast, and we want to adapt to what they want and propose new things to them, as well as keep the other means of distribution.”

Furthermore Ubisoft revealed that Uplay Plus and all past and future games will be available on the Google Stadia. Ubisoft was an early vocal supporter of Google’s new console, especially as the upcoming console focuses solely on streaming games.
