Obsidian Joins Skyforge Team

GamesIndustry International has word from a Russian Game Developer's Conference that Mail.ru announces Obsidian Entertainment will be participating in the development of Skyforge, an MMORPG announced a year ago as being in development at Allods Team. Word is this will be a collaboration, but details are scant for now. "Skyforge is very interesting and promising project. I am glad that Obsidian Entertainment is involved in working on this game," said Obsidian CEO Feargus Urquhart. "I am confident that the cooperation with the Allods Team will be a great experience for all of us." Here's a Russian trailer from when the game was announced. Continue here to read the full story.

Free 16 Bit Arena Experiment Underway

The 16 Bit Arena website has word that their promised experiment is underway to see if this multiplayer came can be supported by free downloads and donations. The game is offered free on most digital distributors, and they are offering free direct downloads from their website with no signups required. Here's word:

FREE PROMOTIONAL GIVEAWAY IN ALL STORES MAY 16-31! Tell your friends so they can get their free copy and join with you! All stores in the Buy section should have it free by the end of day May 16, but in case you'd like to skip signing up on a store's website to download it, here's a direct link. (Note: Downloading from Desura may currently have some media installation issues that are also resolved if installing from this link.)

If we get enough people (filling even one server completely with 9v9s), we'll be experimenting with something new. We'll open up donations, and every $5 you send will put you in a drawing to get a character made just for you! And if this is successful enough, we'll keep the game free permanently and do the drawing on a regular basis. If you don't win, 10% of everything sent will still go to ChildFund (supports hungry children around the world), so either way somebody wins.

Out of the Blue

I really want to go out and grill, but the weather is just not cooperating. I occasionally see gazebos that seem to be intended as grilling shelters, and today would certainly be a good day to have one, so that is something I need to look into.
