Mondo Museum opening 2020

Posted on

When it comes to museums, I’m a hardcore devotee.

It doesn’t matter whether they’re about natural history (my favorite), art, or some other subject, every time I step into one it feels like I’m entering a temple to creativity and understanding, and every time I leave my mind is opened and filled with wonder. For me, museums are more than just giant buildings packed with old paintings and skeletons; they’re places that reveal the true magic of our universe.

That might sound pompous, but I wanted to provide some context for why I’m over the moon to announce our collaboration with independent developer Viewport Games and publisher Kitfox Games on the upcoming management sim, Mondo Museum.

Players will get to construct and decorate their own unique halls, curate exhibits with items from a variety of cool collections — like Ancient Egypt, Space Exploration, and Dinosaurs (just to name a few!) — hire staff to keep things running, and grow their prestige (and profits) to gain access to newer and rarer artifacts. Institutional administration has never been this bright, colorful, or fun before!

We’re going to have a lot more to share in the coming months, but for now you can wishlist the game on Steam, find more info at the official site — www.mondomuseum.com — or check out the reveal teaser below.

SYNCED: Off-Planet revealed at Gamescom 2019

Posted on

As Gamescom kicked off last night, NEXT Studios unveiled their next initiative, a player-versus-player-versus-environment (PvPvE for short) sci-fi shooter called SYNCED: Off-Planet.

The game features teams of survivors fighting against each other and thousands (!) of AI-controlled, cybernetically-corrupted humans, known as Nanos, for a seat on the Ark Shuttle and the chance to escape from a post-apocalyptic Earth.

We’re excited to be collaborating with the dev team, as well as with Studio GOBO, to bring this dangerous new world to players. And what’s being shown this week is just a taste of what’s to come.

An open beta is scheduled for early 2020, but if you’re interested in learning more, visit the game’s site — https://www.nextstudios.com/sop — or watch the cinematic trailer below.
