Remedy is Currently Developing Two New Titles, Wont Showcase This Year

Published

 on

The developers behind Alan Wake and Quantum Break are working on two new titles. According to a press release written by Remedy Game’s Head of Communications Thomas Puha, the studio is working on two titles unrelated to either of the previously mentioned franchises.

No information is currently known about either of the projects but according to Puha; both projects are currently in the early concept phase. Remedy has no intention of showcasing either of these projects at this year’s E3 or Gamescom as they have not reached the point in development where any footage can be shown.

“We can’t wait to show and tell you more about these new projects, but if there’s anything we’ve learned from the past, it’s that we should have the patience to announce games when they’re ready enough. So don’t expect us to take the stage at E3 or Gamescom this year,” says Puha.

The press release also states that Remedy will continue to support Quantum Break as it is one of their most successful games thus far.

Animal Farm Developer Talks Challenges of Adaptation

Published

Animal Farm

While details of the upcoming Animal Farm game remain scant, one of the key developers, Imre Jele, has opened up about the process of adapting George Orwell’s classic text.

Jele took to the stage during University College London’s recent event ‘Rebel? Prophet? Relic? Perspectives on George Orwell in 2019’ to discuss the inspirations and challenges the team has faced. While no transcript of the talk is available, sources from the event took to Twitter to share some of Jele’s insights.

Perhaps most notable is the statement (via the event’s official Twitter page) that “We didn’t want Animal Farm in space—we just wanted Animal Farm, as it was in the text.” This desire separates the project from other adaptations such as Dante’s Inferno or American McGee’s Alice that take considerable liberties with their source material. At the same time, the political nature of the book means that the game should offer more than simple entertainment:

However, these goals are complicated by the fact that, according to Jele (via The Orwell Foundation) that the team is “constantly encountering the problem: at what point in the story would Orwell allow the the reader—the player—to make choices?”

Jele also discussed his own history with the book, which he first experienced as a child in Russian-occupied Hungary, and how it related to his family’s political opinions.

The game was first announced almost two years ago and described as an “adventure-tycoon” experience, though relatively few concrete details have yet been made available. At present, only a PC launch is confirmed with consoles a possibility, while no release window has been announced.
