Back to the weekly news, here will share news and events in the game industry with players.
FNAF: Security Breach map bot
Last month, FNAF: Security Breach was finally launched. However, the game has gained a very high degree of discussion due to many issues. Even with many problems, the game can still occupy the top three best-selling lists on Steam. The new and brand-new characters are very popular, especially the map bot which suddenly popped up. Many live broadcasters and players were scared by this robot that sent the map, and even rated as the scariest character in the game by the players.
The game producer said in the interview that this robot that sends maps is the most problematic character in the game. The producer once thought about removing this robot, but the team insisted on keeping it, and finally put it in the game.
Minecraft broadcaster broke the record and didn’t record it
A live broadcaster named SmallAnt successfully passed Minecraft in 9 minutes and 31 seconds of game time and successfully broke the world record. Although he recorded this speedrun, what he recorded was a movie on his other screen.
This made him very sad, because when he found out, it was too late. When he switched back to the game screen, he had already defeated the End World Dragon, so this video record could not be officially accepted.
Cancelled Bully 2 details
A few days ago, a well-known whistleblower broke the news in the GTA forum, saying that this year Rockstar should announce a new work, and it will be a series of masterpieces. In addition, foreign media wrote an article about the Bully 2. The article mentioned that after the launch of Bully, they have been developing a sequel. It’s just that the studio encountered a lot of problems, which caused the project to be cancelled in 2009.
The former employees of the studio said that at that time, the studio suffered a large-scale layoff by Rockstar, and the heavy workload made the studio employees choose to leave. Interestingly, the honor value system of Red Dead Redemption 2 and many interactive elements are derived from the elements in the original Bully 2. If Bully 2 is really launched, its gameplay will be like Red Dead Redemption.
Various game companies’ actions on NFT
During the New Year, the director of Square Enix issued an open letter. The letter mentioned that NFT and Metaverse will be the future trend, and mentioned this technology will make the game industry on track, and also said that the elements of P2E can inspire players to invest in the game industry.
In South Korea, many game studios have begun to step into the future of NFT. For example, Steam’s MIR4 is one of the most successful NFT games in South Korea. However, the Korean Game Commission banned the distribution of GameFi in South Korea on the grounds of banning prizes. Therefore, many GameFi with P2E elements have been removed from the shelves on all major platforms.
Ready or Not loses publisher due to school shooting
Some time ago, a tactical shooting game called Ready or Not was launched on Steam and received extremely high reviews. However, a few days after the game was launched, some players asked if the development team would have levels based on school shootings. The developer left a message below “You better believe that it will” this sentence. This means that the studio has put this theme in the game. Subsequently, the studio also ended cooperation with the publisher Team17.
The reason is that the subject matter that the studio wants to do is too sensitive, so the publisher does not want to continue cooperating. Developers have also stated on Twitter that in order to improve the quality of games and produce influential content, they will not choose to avoid these content because of the cultural and social norms of the game industry. They also stated that they would listen to the publishers, but would not change their goals. They also explained to the players that the main core of Ready or Not is to pay tribute to law enforcement officers and their work around the world.
Logan Paul turn the Gameboy model into a table
A few days ago, well-known Internet celebrity, Logan Paul shared a video on Twitter. He put 15 Pokémon-themed Gameboy models into artificial resin and made them into a table. His actions have caused dissatisfaction among many players.
They believe that Logan Paul destroyed these historic antique game consoles, even limited edition models. But there are also some players who feel that Logan Paul spends money to collect it is not wrong, and this collection method is also very special.
That’s it for the weekly news. What do players think about it?
