Resistance Trilogy is set to make a stand

Published

You may have held off playing the incredible Resistance games until now. You may have ignored them in favor of other great shooter franchises. But no more. Resistance is futile indeed, as the Resistance Platinum Trilogy is on its way, promising freedom from the oppression of boredom.

It was recently announced on Amazon France that the trilogy would release in France on May 16th. While North-American and rest-of Europe releases have not yet been announced, it’s quite likely it will be available worldwide by the end of year.

The Resistance series is a PS3 exclusive franchise that details the alternate-history war between humanity and an invading alien race called the Chimera in the 1950’s. The games are well known for their inventive weaponry, well-paced narratives, and large scale battles and environments.

Personally, while I feel the first game doesn’t hold up quite as well today as it did in 2006, it’s still worth playing through and the other 2 are absolutely incredible experiences that every single-player should experience. Stand your ground for further details in the future.

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.
