Press release “I Am Blondi” (Android)

By on Jun 29, 2016 in Press Release |

[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.] GAMEPLAY: You are the world’s most famous dog nobody knows. And your master is the world’s most notorious ultra super evil super villain. Your master throws you an endless stream of fast moving treats, and being a dog (with no political agenda btw) you just want to eat it all (aka try to click on them all before they disappear). However -because it’s Hitler- he also throws occasional hand grenades for no apparent reason. If you happen to eat one by accident; game over. Random anger tantrum minigame: Any treat you miss will darken the master’s mood (aka game health bar). Fortunately, his anger fits can easily be appeased by cowering in supplication (press and hold the “beg” button), and if you keep at it until he has reasonably calmed down, you’ll regain his benevolence (aka health replenish). Requires multitasking awareness and fast reaction skills. FEATURES: Endless play with ever increasing treats amount. Additional reaction game to replenish health. Unique retro art style. Saves personal high score locally. No in-game purchases. No ads. No Android permissions required whatsoever. Made with Unity3D. Free.   HISTORY: Despite the topic and the quite obvious Wolfenstein inspired art style this game is by no means intended to be offensive nor is this game to be seen as glorification attempt of mentioned time frame. This is just a game about a famous dog who can’t say no to food. No dubious imagery, symbols or names are used in this game – and no one dies either. Nevertheless, this game was rejected by Apple for having a “too offensive concept”. ABOUT THE DEV: This is my second game. I am a motion graphics designer in Oslo, Norway. All art work and programming have been done by me in approximately 150h of work. I made this because I have never seen a game with this topic before and I wondered if a concept like this would even be playable at all. Surprisingly, it’s quite difficult to stop playing (according to player feedback I have received so far). Gameplay – YouTube upload by a player: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tuvWFzKZ314 Game release...

Crown is not magically worth more because it is being split. Photo: Supplied

By on Jun 28, 2016 in Press Release |

Crown is not magically worth more because it is being split. Photo: Supplied Want to know the best way to spot the winners when you’re at the casino? It’s easy – they’re the ones with the casino uniforms on. It’s an old joke, but like all good humour, is rooted firmly in reality. The house always wins – because the rules and odds of its games ensure things work out that way. Crown Resorts (ASX:CWN), though, pulled off an even better conjuring trick recently. One that would make even David Copperfield blush. There was no magic wand in sight, no magician’s assistants in sparkly leotards, and no rabbits in top hats. The only tool required was a six-page announcement to the ASX, and Crown made $1 billion appear from mid-air. That’ll buy you a lot of rabbits. The details of the Crown deal are pretty short and, for the record, still simply an intention (though it seems likely to go ahead). The company has announced that it intends to separate its international business away from its Australian business. And it’s also hoping – should market conditions allow – to sell of much of its Australian property into a new, ASX-listed, property trust. And with those simple details – even if the split itself will be complex to finalise – the Crown share price jumped 13 per cent, adding a cool billion dollars to the company’s market capitalisation. Now, if you’ve been paying attention, you should be wondering how that’s possible. Turning to the economists’ favourite analogy, the pie, Crown has managed to take a single Four ‘N’ Twenty and, in the simple act of slicing it into three pieces, managed to make the whole pie bigger. Impressive, huh? So what gives? If you ever thought the stock market was rational, take this as proof positive that it’s not. Investors who were only prepared to pay $11.26 per share before the plan was announced were all of a sudden paying $12.75 less than 24 hours later. And the shares continued to rise after that, to over $13.00 within a week. No, there are no new assets. Crown isn’t opening any new businesses. It’s just reorganising itself. The short answer to “what gives?” is this: the market is silly...
