Outlive the dead through intense four-player co-op campaign missions around the world, and battle both zombies and real human opponents in competitive, team-based Players vs. Players vs. Zombies (PvPvZ) multiplayer.

Paradox Interactive Acquires Iceflake Studios

Paradox Interactive, a publisher and developer of games worth acquiring, today announced the acquisition of Iceflake Studios, a developer located in Tampere, Finland. This brings the total number of studios owned and operated by Paradox Interactive to nine, with locations in six countries.

Iceflake Studios was founded in 2007 and has developed games for PCs, consoles and for all current VR and mobile platforms. The studio is currently developing Surviving the Aftermath with Paradox, a survival management-strategy game now available in early access on PC and Xbox.

“When we started our discussion with Paradox, we knew that we had a very like-minded approach. Our collaboration with Surviving the Aftermath has been excellent and showed how similar our approach to development is. So when Paradox suggested that we could become part of the family, we were thrilled,” said Lasse Liljedahl, Co-Founder and Studio Manager at Iceflake. “It did not hurt that we were fans of Paradox games ourselves, to begin with! This new step helps us to focus on our dream of becoming one of the best developers in the game genres we love so much.”

“The collaborative efforts we’ve shared thus far with Iceflake have given us all the confidence that this is a natural fit,” said Charlotta Nilsson, COO at Paradox Interactive. “Surviving the Aftermath fits the Paradox portfolio perfectly, and Iceflake has shown themselves to be the kind of partner who can help us create more titles in our core genres. Turning this relationship into a long-term partnership is an easy decision, and we’re eager to share more great games with our audience in the years to come.”

Iceflake Studios joins the rapidly growing family of studios at Paradox Interactive, which also includes Paradox Development Studio in Stockholm; Paradox Arctic in Umeå, Sweden; the Paradox development team in Malmö, Sweden; Paradox Tectonic in Berkeley, California; Triumph Studios in Delft, The Netherlands; Harebrained Schemes in Seattle; Paradox Tinto in Barcelona, and Playrion Game Studio in Paris.

What Savior Has Been Doing

Some of you may have noticed that @torstenvblog as been doing much of the writing lately with myself mostly doing the reviews for games tossed our way. If you haven’t noticed, hey guys @torstenvblog has been doing most of the writing lately and I have been mostly just doing the reviews for games tossed our way. There have been a couple reasons for this. First, my internet has been quite hit and miss lately. Ever since COVID started it has been cutting in and out pretty consistently and as you can imagine getting someone out here to fix it has been pretty much impossible. Second, I may have had it myself. It was early when it all started and I live in an area where testing wasn’t really set up yet. I had all the symptoms and as I am not high risk it was decided that I should self-quarantine and to the emergency room if things got worse. Luckily for me, they did not, but there was still about a month getting out of bed was not easy to do without losing my breath. I am actually still not even fully recovered to be 100% honest. So it was either that or the world’s worst chest cold, either way, I am not concerned.

Now that brings me to the picture of that Tractor Trailor. (Don’t worry this isn’t sponsored by Amazon and I don’t work for them, the picture just made me laugh) The roughly month and a half I have been getting ready and returned to school to get my CDL (commercial driver’s license)  Between that and the internet my time has been limited and @torstenvblog has been cool enough to pick up the slack for me. I did however want to assure you Savior Gaming is not going anywhere. He and I will be here for a while to come and even when I am on the road there will be reviews for games and movies and even pictures from my eventual travels. I have always just been quite upfront with you guys and that hasn’t changed. Many of you have been here since our very first post, the death of both our fathers, lost girlfriends, and even to hear about the raising of baby savior and her antics. I look forward to sharing this as well. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

void tRrLM(); //Void Terrarium! PS4 Review

Yup, you know what time it is guys, a huge shout out to NIS America for tossing me this one to review, love you guys. By the way, from now on  I am just calling this one Void instead of all that other stuff, I don’t want to type it all out every time I mention it, just know the full name is in the title.

 

Now the story on this one is a bit odd to explain, so I will actually just copy and paste it from their email then explain from there.

In a world contaminated with toxic fungi, a discarded maintenance robot finds a girl named Toriko on the brink of death among the discarded junk in a scrapyard. After nursing her back to health, it is revealed that she may very well be the last remaining human, and is highly vulnerable to the deadly conditions of the outside world. To ensure her survival, the robot and his newfound friend, a decommissioned AI known as factoryAI, creates a refuge for her within a terrarium. To reinforce the terrarium as well as Toriko’s poor health, the lone robot must venture into the wasteland to gather resources while battling the vagrant machines and mutated creatures that roam there. Along the way, the uncertain future of Toriko’s existence and with her, the entire human race, will slowly come to light…

Now, all that tells you a ton and nothing at the same time. You play as a robot that kind of looks like a mouse, you start at level one and will advance through different dungeons that change every time you enter them. Each time you restart at level one and lose all of your items. This is because when you return all the items in your inventory are turned into needed resources to build and care for your human, Toriko. This sounds like a pain but it actually works very well.

Don’t worry about powering up your robot tho, as you build certain things for your human, whether it is upgraded things for her tank or just small quality of life things for her like a better bed and such they give your little robot upgrades to its health and attack or whatever else you may need. This way you will start out with an advantage and as you level up you become stronger in the dungeons themselves, this encourages you to build al the upgrades as soon as you can.

The graphics aren’t great but they are nice and fit the roguelike style RPG very well. The sound also falls into the same category.

For me the real success tho was the fact I found myself wanting to know more about how the world ended up here. Why was Toriko the last human left? Was she even the last one? What did FactoryAI have to do with it if anything? All these questions kept me diving back in for just one more time before going to be.

The game isn’t perfect, but there are no major bugs or glitches, tho at times the translations were a bit weird and a couple times I caught words repeating. ( for example it might say and and in a sentence) And there are a couple odd difficulty spikes. The game is still a solid 7/10 and worth picking up to me tho for the price that it is. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

TV Vet — Master Mix Movies

Dr. Dolittle: Million Dollar Mutts is probably the Dr. Dolittle direct-to-video sequel I was most nervous about. Can anybody take a title like that seriously? Especially with a DVD cover that only shows animals. With Eddie Murphy’s John Dolittle long out of the picture, Kyla Pratt and Norm Macdonald are the only actors to appear […]
