Good news and bad....
By Darkflame at 2011-04-16 14:28
Bad news first;

Ubisofts Treasure Hunter Institute beta has stopped with no plans at the moment to continue development or release it as a full game.
The unique puzzle/explore-em-up was co-created by the creators of LBA and had a strong focus on user generated content in vast explorable landscapes. Its truly a shame to see it ended.


And now some good news;


Alone In The Dark is now available to buy on GoG.com. Made by the core team behind LBA, this game almost single handedly invented the survival horror genre.


GOG has put together a nice bundle of the game,soundtrack and sequels, made it all work on XP/Vista/W7 and is selling it for $6;

To go with its release they have also interviewed the creator - the man also behind LBA;

New games from LWS!
By Darkflame at 2011-02-03 18:56
The ever-rising Little Worlds Studio's has just released two more games.

Their first, Survivium, is a strategy coding game where you program virus's to try to dominate a grid. A bit like a more elaborate and competitive "Conway's Game Of Life", or a much more accessible form of "Code War", the game lets you play though a series of standalone missions, as well as compete head to head with others around the world. You can also just experiment by pitting your own coded virus's against eachother - which is pretty interesting in itself!



Like, Colour Cross, its free to play, but paid for by additional content you can buy.

You can play on facebook here;
http://apps.facebook.com/survivium/?...kmarks&count=0
- and its also avaliable on iPhones.

Also, did I mention Survivum comes from the mind of Fredric Raynal? Some people here might have heard of him....

Next up is Lords Of Dynasty, a strategic MMO;

http://www.lordsofdynasty.com/

A adapation of the japanease best saleing game "http://www.3gokushi.jp/", currently its only avaliable in french, but there is a free beta for the next month.

By Preset (not verified) at 2010-10-25 01:29
http://ludoid.fr/ludographie.htm

THI is an on-line adventure game currently being developed by Ubisoft. It is aimed to challenge your mind with puzzles and riddles combining brain power with orientation skills in a 3D world. While not focusing on a linear story progression, it provides many quests tailored to appeal to a wide range of players and promotes user content creation.

Join THI in the Beta phase and experience the game first-hand by playing the quests and maybe even creating some of your own. Providing feedback and suggestions to the development team is appreciated. Thanks!

Never before seen LBA "fan art" artwork.
By Jasiek at 2010-09-01 19:27
Found this while browsing Peter Elson's (1947–1998) site.

He was the author of some of my favourite sci-fi book covers! Just goes to show that there are, or where LBA fans in the most unusual of places...!

Its already got a number of good reviews even in the official Nintendo magazine!

They have also recently launched Colour Cross online, available ver facebook;
http://apps.facebook.com/color_cross/
It has some pretty innovative features, especially the treasure-hunting mode, and is well worth checking out.

An iPhone/iPad version is in the works too, so you can be sure to get your colour cross fix whatever platforms you have
---
Speaking of iPad, they have also released a game on the platform called 'Splash Duel HD' . Its a like a mix of arkanoid/Pong(/or Popcorn!)

Theres a trailer here.
---
Finally, as if Little Worlds Studio hasn't been busy enough with all this, the beta of their "Cosmicrew" game is still going strong, and needs more pilots;
Cosmicrew can be played solo, but really is made for collaborative multiplayer, so please hang around online and team up with others

You can give feedback for any of these games in this thread;
