A free non-commercial version of ZBrush. ZBrushCoreMini. Not sure if this version is relevant for gamedevelopment. Model exporting, baking etc. taking into account. Otherwise Blender's sculpting tools is doing a great job.

So this could have some implications for the danish games industry. Warnerbros Interactive Entertainment has been publishing some LEGO games and the latest HITMAN games. Time will tell!

Pretty sure some of the big boys will snag them up fairly quickly.

AT&T is offering Warner Bros. game division for sale

AT&T is offering its Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment (WBIE) division up for sale, according to a CNBC report, as well as our own reporting.

Citing unnamed sources, CNBC said Friday that potential bidders included Take-Two Interactive, Electronic Arts, and Activision Blizzard. If the sale happens, it would be a major change for Hollywood and its relationship with the industry, as most major studios are opting to get out of the game business, reversing a trend from earlier decades where they loaded up on dev studios.

Two sources confirmed to GamesBeat that the report is correct in terms of the division being up for sale. WBIE has not commented on this. Both EA and Take-Two declined to comment. Activision Blizzard did not respond to the request for comment.

Also the Superliminal demo is a recommended play on from The Steam Game Festival. If you are looking for some fresh first person puzzle machanics. Don't know if the mechanics will hold up for the entire game. But I had nice demo experience.

And another demo/game recommendation. Detroit Become Human.

I often mention how I'm not really connecting with slower paced story driven games.

Well this is different!! And really well crafted in all aspects.
The control scheme and camera is a bit unusual. But once that is overcome and you are there . The non-linear choice and consequence gameplay, writing, thematic, performances is really hitting it home.
Also it's a game that's not trying to be a FPS-platforming-strategy-game with a bit of narrative sprinkled on top. ;) But it's just focusing on narrative and choices. With a thematically relevant investigation perfectly interwoven into the game. Also the timer based gameplay aspect feels like an excellent natural fit.
Quantic Dream has had quite a few years of perfecting their craft under the belt. And it shows.

Also great point this game makes. Is that it makes the player feel the player is playing the story. As opposed to waiting through story to play the game.

This shit works! :)
