2017/02/22After having Planet Minigolf published for PS3, Zen Studios had decided to conquare the hearts of the genre-loving audience on the PC platform as well with Infinite Minigolf, supporting multiplayer option. The game is available for testing on Steam as an Early Access product.
2017/02/18As time went by, Neocore Games have published the downloadable contents to The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing, such as Van Helsing: Arcane Mechanic, a The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing: Blue Blood or the Van Helsing: Veteran Multiplayer Skin. All of these downloadable contents are available via Steam of course. It is less known however, that Neocore Games have also published The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing, The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing 2 and The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing 2: Extended Edition as well as Deathtrap called World of Van Helsing: Deathtrap in the Microsoft Store.
2017/02/17The team of Neocore Games is currently working on a new website. They are putting things in order here and there on their official online webspace. Frankly there were things to get organized for sure, since anyone stumbling into the developer's website accidentally could easily get lost in between the different design of pages and the hectically changing menu options being available. Until the new website is finished though, be prepared for an even worse experience. Don't even dare to get started without a map. Due to the changing architecture, links having been published earlier on the Internet had stopped working and leading only to an error page. We are excited to see what comes from this general refurbishment.
2017/02/16Our Wonderful World is another of the not-so-beautiful White Rabbit Games products. The graphics of the slider puzzle game is in par with the presentation of Candy Blast. Nevertheless if this is what is missing from your life, you can purchase it via Steam.
2017/02/15On the occasion of Valentine's Day Zen Studios is offering three tables of Pinball FX2 for half price this week on all platforms, so including the PC. You can now download Marvel's Women of Power, Aliens vs. Pinball and Balls of Glory tables for a discount price via both Steam and Microsoft Store.
2017/02/09Behind the walls of Neocore Games, the team is working hard on Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr, so we can take it in our hands as soon as possible. I have some lagging behind to work on on this front as well. But I am to shorten the list of tasks by writing about Destruction Trailer, the first episode of the Inqisitorial Log video serie.
2017/02/08Yet another game we can thank for White Rabbit Games is Ball of Wonder that is an Arkanoid variant dressed in a circus theme. This creation, released in mid fall of last year, is much more esthetic than Candy Blast. Therefor its price is also much higher. You can download it via Steam for 2,99 Euros.
2017/02/07Adorables, the game of White Rabbit Games is also available in Microsoft Apps Store for download for free!
2017/02/06The White Rabbit Games, of whom I had slightly forgot about last year, have released Candy Blast during the summer, another puzzle game following their first debut with Adorables. This game is also aiming for casual players. The graphics design is well lower quality than that of GAdorbalesG. Nevertheless the gameplay could still provide plenty of entertainment. Candy Blast is available via Steam for 0,99 Euro cents.
2017/01/15Zen Studios has announced a new pack for Marvel Pinball, which goes under the name of Marvel Women's Power. The pack contains two, the A-Force and Champions tables. They are available via Steam, or in the Microsoft Store. You can find the trailer video of the game on YouTube as well.
2017/01/11The newest, fifth episode of the article serie about game development was published by Developer Pixie blog. This enumerates the steps taken one after the other during the creation.
2017/01/10Last time I wrote about White Rabbit Games was back in the end of 2014. They were trying to gain territory on the PC platform market while having their successful Android development segment preserved. Their Kickstarter campaign, supporting this, failed however. They did not give up, and now their puzzle game, the Adorables is available via Steam.
2017/01/07Neocore Games had started forming the different kind of enemies you can fight in Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr based on the feedback they received from the community of future players on the game forums. And they already have some things to show you.
2017/01/06Neocore Games had revealed that Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr will feature an open world sandbox kind of gameplay besides the regular single player campaign game.
2016/12/16The article serie, written by the Developerpixie blog about game development, had reached its 4th episode. It talks about what is game development, who can become a game developer and in what ways their dreams may be achieved, clearly, in an easy-flowing light-tone, hence somewhat superficially. However for those who don't feel themselves familiar in the world of game development may use it as a starting point to understand what is happening for what reason on the screen and behind it. The first episode stands as an introduction to the article serie. The second episode presents the building blocks of a development. The third episode gives an overview of the possibilities one can use to become a good professional. In the newest, fourth episode you can read about the community formed by game developers.
2016/12/13A new pinball table package had been released for Pinball FX2. The upcoming episode for Zen Studio's success story development is Bethesda Pinball. You can find pictures of it on the official website of Pinball FX2. The game is available for PC from 6th of December via Steam, and for Windows 10 through Microsoft Store as well, where you will be able to acquire the package via further in-app purchase. There is not only a Teaser Trailer available, but by now also a Launch Trailier is published. The package contains tables drawn in the world of Fallout, DOOM, and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
2016/10/28I have the chance to present you a new development team and their game, or rather games. It is 6Quest. The name of the team is yet unknown, so I will call them by the title of the game. They have even launched a Kickstarter campaign last November, to speed up the development of their product. However it failed really badly, since they did not manage to collect even the 10% of the required funding by the deadline. Nevertheless they did not give up on creating their game, and by the third quarter of this year that launched the website of 6Quest. Here you can find the digital implementation of numerous adventure books, or text adventure games, the list of which is expanding over time.
2016/10/26Naturally Jatekok.hu was also paying attention back in March, when Overon Station was keen on firing up the development of Dome City. They also wrote an article about the release of the concept arts for the game.
2016/10/18GameStar had written an article about Dome City, developing under the hands of Overon Station. As a nostalgic experience, you might want to check out, what concept arts were the game to develop from to its present form. It is interesting to see what could be trasnferred to the full digital world and what could not.
2016/10/06Zen Studios had published a new pinball table pack for Pinball FX2 back in April. It is called the Aliens vs. Pinball expansion. It consists of three tables, the Aliens Pinball, the Alien: Isolation, and the Alien vs. Predator tables. Each one comes with a trailer video, that had been uploaded to YouTube by the developers. You can buy the game via Steam or Microsoft App Store for Windows 10 based systems.
2016/09/29I have mentioned earlier the Vakondok 4 video interview series launched by GameStar. In the 7th teaser episode you can listen to some secret stories of Zsolt Vámosi about his carreer, and about how the non-official Chinese translation of Theocracy,the strategy game of former Philos Laboratories, was made. The final documentary will be published in the beginning of 2017.
2016/09/20Nordic Games went shopping. The last 5-10 years of the Hungarian PC game development can hardly be called a success story. Big names had closed their workshops one after the other, leaving their goods up for grabs. Nordic Games was the one taking most of the deserted titles of Hungarian game development. In the beginning of the year they bought the rights to the probably most famous title, Imperium Galactica 2, the space strategy of former Digital Reality. But as the page listing the properties of Nordic Games Group shows, they also put some other titles in the cart as well, such as Bang Bang Racing, Sine Mora and SkyDrift, also having been published and/or developed by Digital Reality in the very late course of the studios' life. Furthermore they also own the rights to all the parts of the Codename: Panzers series developed by former Stormregion, namely; Codename: Panzers - Phase One, Codename: Panzers - Phase Two and Codename Panzers 2: Cold War.
2016/08/02CastleStorm is available again on Steam for a discounted price. You can buy the Complete Edition, which means that both downloadable contents, CastleStorm - From Outcast to Savior and CastleStorm - The Warrior Queen are included, for a price reduced by 50% this week.
2016/07/03It's worth to skim through the offers of the Steam Summer Sales, looking for the products of other Hungarian game development studios as well. You can also buy Defenders of Ardania from Most Wanted Entertainment for a lowered price.
2016/07/02Balls of Glory is here! Zen Studios had delivered four new tables under the engine of Pinball FX2 in this pack. Balls of Glory have been developed in cooperation with FOX Digital Entertainment, and holds an instance of four of the series running on the channel. The 4 corresponding tables are the American Dad Pinball, the Archer Pinball, the Bob's Burgers Pinball, and the Family Guy Pinball. Naturally you have a teaser trailer for each of the new tables, and one to the package as a whole.
2016/07/01At the beginning of 2014 Zen Studios had started implementing a new idea, which was entitled KickBeat in the end. The game is practically a fighting Guitar Hero. The reason why it made to Gregorius' corner now, is that it turned out to include the PC as a platform to be released on, however I happened to miss out on that. During the Steam Summer Sale the game is available for a discount price. There is also a teaser trailer video that shows the Steam version.
2016/06/30Steam Summer Sale is on! During the special period, you can buy Pinball FX2 along its numerous extensions for quite a discount via Steam. Another Zen Studios product, CastleStorm is also available for a discount price.
2016/06/29As you could already find out from the last post about Zen Studios, the team made Pinball FX2 available for Windows 10 as well, via Microsoft Store.
2016/06/17Unfortunately it is now official, that the KickStarter campaign of Dome City had failed to collect the required funding. Nevertheless the creators at GOveron StationG urged to reassure everyone, that the development of the game is carried on. This only means that the pace of the production could not be sped up.
2016/06/16Neocore Games had launched the new website of Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr. On this, you can now find not only the one-year-old announcement trailer, but also a new, Mass Destruction Trailer.
2016/06/15Screamer 4x4 is available for a discounted price! Now you can download the game of former Clever's Games from the website of Good Old Games for only $1.49 innstead of $5.99.
2016/06/09PrivateMoon Studios had quietly shipped a game for the Természet Világa magazine. Miazma is an adventure game in the form of an interactive movie, which guides the players to the Institute for Nuclear Research of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. The game, from which you can find videos on the official website of the game as well, was released as the DVD appendix of the April issue of the Természet Világa magazine. PrivateMoon Studios will consider the dissemination of the game via Steam as well.
2016/06/07The lately announced Star Wars Pinball - The Force Awakens pinball table is rather one of a two-pack for GPinball FX 2G, developed by Zen Studios. This table pack also contains the Might of The First Order table as well. Naturally there has already been a trailer video released for this expansion as well. You can buy the game via Steam or Microsoft Store.
2016/06/04With the TopWare & Anuman discount on Good Old Games, you can buy Dream Pinball 3D, a game developed by ASK Homework for only 1.29 Euros instead of 5.19 Euros.
2016/05/21Overon Station, the team behind Dome City, has released a new video, which presents, how the game engine is displaying the Mars surface, on which we can ride with the Mars rover. In the meantime the Kickstarter campaign is still going on. Unfortunately though it does not look promising. So far only the 26% of the fund was raised.
2016/05/02A Hungarian development had gone through an adventurous life-cycle, but only quietly, in the background, behind the curtains. Thanks to the article of Gamestar, the never-seen development of Digital Reality is revealed. You can take a look at the Star Trek game that provides the same visual experience as Haegemonia: Legions of Iron, and its expansion, a Haegemonia: The Solon Heritage, using the same engine, in the video on vimeo. It is a shame, because the implementation of a well-known brand can always improve the success of a development studio. Although it is true, that in case of smaller teams, the contrary proves to be more likely.
2016/04/29This year a fantastic video series had begun on the renewed GameStar. Unfortunately the consequence of the renovation is that all my downloaded RSS articles became useless under the new engine, but who cares, if the colleagues are launching such a writing and filming that everyone gets exceited about, who is foloowing the hungarian PC game development? Especially if I take the effort and scan through the article dumping anyway on Gregorius' corner as well. In the video you will hear stories with the words of such veteran, as Donát Kiss, who is highly responsible for firing up the hungarian PC game development in the Commodore 64 era with Novotrade.
2016/04/27Zen Studios is taking another leap forward. The team has implemented a new table for GPinball FX 2G. Riding the wave of episode 7 of Star Wars, they have implemented a The Force Awakens table for the Star Wars Pinball package. Naturally there is also a trailer video available on the official YouTube channel of Zen Studios.
2016/04/14Last November, in the 14th episode of the 1st season of Checkpoint, Tamás Beregi was the guest of Gret and Stöki. Tamás Beregi is a game-researcher, former lecturer of ELTE University, currently a lecturer of BME-GTK. In the radio interview he talked about the history of hungarian computer game development, mentioning stories from the golden age, including Appaloosa Interactive, the former Novotrade Interactive, responsible for titles such as the Ecco The Dolphin series, Digital Reality, the developers of Reunion, Imperium Galactica, Imperium Galactica 2. A couple of words said about the never completed version of Imperium Galactica 3, or the Escape from Alcatraz, brought to us by former Philos Laboratories.
2016/03/31Neocore Games have surprised their fans with a little gift. They have uploaded the works of Gergely Buttinger to their YouTube channel. This means that they have released the music of The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing, the music of The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing 2 and the music of The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing 3, each in a playlist.
2016/03/30A testing article was published on the pages of GameStar. The article examines The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing: Final Cut, recently released by Neocore Games.
2016/03/23As a member of Overon Station had answered to my question, they plan to record a German and Russian dubbing as well to Dome City, their new game. The latter two however is still in the needs assessment phase. Interest in them had already arisen, but the actual profitability of the side-project has to be evaluated.
2016/03/22GameKapocs has put together an exhausting and exhastive article about Dome City, the upcoming development of Overon Station. Those, who would like to know more about the game, will find some new information for sure, if they have not read it already. The article is in hungarian, but Google Translate can help for sure.
2016/03/07I can introduce a new Hungarian team today, the development studio of Overon Station. They are most probably a team consisting of experienced members of former Hungarian development studios. They were also ganged up with Petri Alanko, the Finnish music composer, who was also responsible for the music of such titles, as Alan Wake or Trials Fusion. Their game, Dome City, is going to be an adventure game, that utilizes the Unreal Engine 4. It will evoke such glorious times of Hungarian PC game development, when characters spoke in Hungarian language. Our mother tongue is brought to life by Bori Csuha, Balázs Szvetlov and Ádám Gacsal so far. Numerous pieces of media have been already revealed from the game, since development have been going on for more than a year now. Hence you can already watch an announcement trailer video, a cutscene trailer video and one that presents almost 7 minutes of gameplay. All available in both Hungarian and English language. It has just happened today, that Pierrot offered his help for the team. He was responsible for the development of the Ancient Games of Nations series and Jumurdzsák gyűrűje, under his own development studio, PrivateMoon Studios. The publishing of the game is expected next year. I wish strength and good luck for the guys with their project!
2016/03/05A video presenting the features of The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing: Final Cut was released by Neocore Games.
2016/03/04A trailer video with a nice atmosphere was released for The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing: Final Cut, from Neocore Games.
2016/02/19You can read a test about Solar Shifter EX, the new game from Elder Games, on the columns of Jatekok.hu. The test examines the game from every angle. Although it was written quite long ago, along the release of the game, which is itself is half a year old, Solar Shifter EX has not yet received a single update to its original code. Hence the test can be said up-to-date still. Also it is quite assuring to see that the game does not contain any bug of such severity that a still active developer did not feel the urge to release a patch.
2016/02/17Last September Elder Games, the well-recognized one-man development studio, had released a new game, called Solar Shifter EX, which is a shoot em up. IT looks really promising by the first videos and pictures already released, but if you are willing to take a closer look, you should visit the appropriate page of Steam to download the game immediately.
2016/02/01For another 13 hours you can get Nexus: The Jupiter Incident, developed by Mithis Games, on the website of Good Old Games.
2016/01/28The writers of GameStar have travelled last year to GamesCom 2015 exhibition, where they have also paid a visit to the booths of Neocore Games. You can find their article about the event and the developers' new game, Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr on the pages of GameStar.
2016/01/13The next episode of the Warhammer franchise will be developed by Neocore Games. Having the opportunity to bring Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr to life is a great professional recognition. We shall support the team together so they can once again put down something of high quality. You can also check out the first teaser video of the game already.
2016/01/11Last year Neocore Games have sold out the one millionth issue of the The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing series. Riding the wave of fame once again they have decided to compress the events of the episodes of the trilogy into a single game. The new game containing the story of the original The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing and its followers, The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing 2 and The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing 3 is presented as The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing: Final Cut.
2015/11/20From today until Tuesday, you can get Haegemonia: Gold Edition, which includes both GHaegemonia: The Legions of IronG game and its expansion Haegemonia: The Solon Heritage, for a discounted price on Good Old Games. Due to the 75% discount you can download the game for only 2,39 Euros. You can also get GSyberiaG and GSyberia 2G, for which you can find the Hungarian translations here on Gregorius? corner, for the same amount.
2015/09/15We can already find two videos on Youtube about Quern, the new game from Zadbox Entertainment. The first one a teaser trailer, while the second one is a video presenting the gameplay.
2015/09/14In a short time I can introduce you the second new born team, Zadbox Entertainment. The young fellas had collected material support by community funding as well. They finished the project on Kickstarter successfully, and received green light on Steam too for Quern, a puzzle adventure game set in a Myst-like world. Good luck guys!
2015/09/13A testing article was released on the columns of GameStar as well about The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing 3, the new game of Neocore Games.
2015/09/12A testing article was released on the columns of GameKapocs about The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing 3, the new game of Neocore Games.
2015/09/11StormCube have already released two videos of Vortex: The Gateway. One of them is a teaser video, while the other present s a couple of minutes of gameplay.
2015/09/10I have the honour to present you a new development studio, StormCube Games. I can say that they have fired things up quickly by managing to get a green light on Steam to their very first project, Vortex: The Gateway. Now it is only up to the guys when the final product will be shipped. The crew is not new in the field. Separately they all contributed to well-known titles such as GCrysis - WarheadG, Warhammer: Mark of Chaos, Warhammer: Mark of Chaos - Battle March, Codename: Panzers - Phase One, Codename Panzers 2: Cold War, Rush for Berlin, Rush for Berlin: Rush for The Bomb, Joint Task Force or Terminator 3: War of The Machines. We could also say that it is a real "best of" team, from whom we expect nothing less than the best. We cannot look aside the fact that the name, StormCube Games, shows similarities to Stormregion. Probably there is quite some overlap of the team members with the former studio. We are really excited to see what will be the fruit of this union and we can only wish all the best to them.
2015/09/09Neocore Games had launched The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing 3, while on the occasion the Launch Trailer was also released. Do not expect much either from the video, which fails to show anything new of the product, nor from the product itself that seems to be yet another release of the same hero.
2015/09/08A preliminary presentation of The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing 3 from Neocore Games was published on the Jatekok.hu portal.
2015/07/18The videos presenting the characters of The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing 3 had been published long ago as well thanks to Neocore Games. You can find the videos presenting the Umbralist & Phlogistoneer characters here, the Elementalist & Protector characters here and the Constructor & Bounty Hunter characters here.
2015/07/13The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing 3 was released by Neocore Games on March, 22nd. You can download the game via Steam.
2015/07/03There is a weekend discount on numerous games on Good Old Games. Now you can download Screamer 4x4 for a lower price. The game was developed by former Clevers Games back in their existence.
2015/06/27Gamekapocs is trying to find out the secret behind the success of Neocore Games in an . They are asking the developers about their newest games.
2015/04/24The 1.3.0 version release of The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing 2 holds a new game mode that is closest to a kind of return the flag. The developers at Neocore Games don't neglect their games. They are working on The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing 3, they have just released Deathtrap and keep udating The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing 2. Very good attitude towards players and their fame.
2015/04/23Following the article presenting the alpha version of Deathtrap, Gamekapocs has published an evaluation reflecting the final version of the game of Neocore Games. You can find the launch trailer on YouTube as well.
2015/04/22If the collection from the end of last year, including the South Park, Marvel: Venom and The Walking Dead tables, would not be enough to pull that game from the back of your drawer, you might be interested in the tables released this February. The Iron & Steel package contains the Wild West Rampage table and one set in the environment of CastleStorm. Zen Studios is producing the tables for Pinball FX2 one after the other.
2015/04/21If you have not launched Pinball FX2 for a while now, maybe all you need to do so is to read this article by PlayDome to check out what tables were published for the game by the developers.
2015/04/14Bitter-sweet news is that Invictus Games has started to develop Street Tuning Evolution, the successor of GStreet Legal RacingG and GStreet Legal Racing - RedlineG, the games undeservedly underrated worldwide, but owning a really lasting group of hardcore fans. The studio intended to bring the game, as opposed to its predecessors, without publisher push. The developers tried to fund their efforts first via Kickstarter followed by Indiegogo. Unfortunately they failed to meet their own expectations. Street Tuning Evolution was to use a physics engine developed in-house, of what Invictus Games is best known of, and for visual presentation they were to switch to the Unreal Engine 4. Previous graphics engines of the development studio failed to bring the desired performance, so the decision was for the best. However the future of the game is now unknown. There is only a video left to make your mouth water.
2015/04/13Do you remember Defenders of Ardania, the not so delightful game of Most Wanted Entertainment? Now Neocore Games is presenting on a video the game mode of Deathtrap, that reminds the most of its unsuccessful predecessor. Deathtrap on the other hand does it all better according to both the press and gamers.
2015/03/27There is a weekend discount on numerous games on Good Old Games. Now you can download Dream Pinball 3D for a lower price. The game was developed by ASK Homework back in the days when I was helping the crew too.
2015/03/26During the production of Deathtrap Neocore Games has also been carrying on their other development, The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing 3. They will present the game on Gamescom this year. They also await help from the players to come up with easter egg ideas inside the game. You can share your ideas with the developers on their developer's blog.
2015/03/25An article has been published on the columns of Gamekapocs about Deathtrap. The evaluation reflects an early, alpha state of the game of Neocore Games.
2015/03/24In the first days of February the full version of Deathtrap had been released. The game was already available via Steam beforehand, but only in an alpha version state. The final product was uploaded for the public on the 4th of February. The newest release holds a bunch of fixes for such easy mistakes that one might think they were put in deliberately by Neocre Games so people would not stick with the alpha version.
2015/03/23Somehow I forgot to share this here with you, but of course, the second episode of the Deathtrap trailers have been published long ago. It continues to bring the brutality known from previous episode, powdered with black humour.
2015/03/20There is a weekend discount on numerous games on Good Old Games. Now you can download Syberia 1 and Syberia 2 for a lower price. For both games you can find my Hungarian translation here on Gregorius' corner. Also you can buy Haegemonia Gold edition, which includes both Haegemonia: Legions of Iron, the base game, and Haegemonia: The Solon Heritage, the expansion.
2015/03/01Although we may not link Digic Pictures directly to game development, but their work of outstanding quality had contributed to numerous international developments throughout the years. I would like to draw your attention that following many great titles, they had earned the possibility to make the cinematics of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. But you should also check out all previous works of the guys, including the cinematics of the Assassin's Creed series.
2015/01/30An new extension pack was released for Pinball FX2, developed by Zen Studios. You can find two tables in South Park Pinball in the setting of the world famous cartoon series. Articles about the game are praising the implementation of Zen Studios once again. For PC you can get the game via Steam and you can also find a video about it on YouTube.
2015/01/20The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing 2 - Complete Pack was released, which you can obtain via Steam. For reduced-priced pack you can find the Ink Hunt and Pigasus DLCs, as well as the music of the game. For the glorious moment the guys have put together a video.
2015/01/16Do you remember when people could get written about, on the acknowledging columns of the representatives of professional press, by introducing something brand new in PC gaming such as four-point physics in driving games? Thanks to this there was nobody among the group of people following closely the news about PC game development, who had not been wasting hours of the evenings, guiding the vehicles of Terep 2 on the pixel-sea of mountain slopes. The physics and the idea behind the game was further developed in the central and eastern parts of Hungary. One of them was Invictus in Debrecen, implementing 1nsane. Their game, published by Codemasters, was very well received even internationally. A less spinning approach was taken by Clevers Games, who developed Screamer 4x4. The game was published by Virgin Interactive who battled with financial issues back then. The game didn't get well advertised and there were times when the game was piled up on the shelves of stores in boxes. It would be a mistake to blame only Virgin Interactive, since the hardcore trial simulation happened to target a much thinner layer of gamers than its rival could, and the fine-tuning of the physics engine didn't fit the game-play that well. If you missed out on the games, now following 1nsane, Screamer 4x4 is also available from the website of Good Old Games.
2015/01/09Neocore Games is not farting around with Deathtrap. The first video to set the atmosphere players could expect from the game is kicking the door right in. It sets the age restriction and instead of aiming at the layer audience, it hits them right at heart and captures them.
2015/01/08Having approached the end of 2014, Neocore Games have decided to take hold of a little extra profit by making the tower defense minigame of The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing and The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing 2 a standalone game itself. It is really not easy to remain an independent development studio, and the idea is genial since the product is almost completed already, it has been tested from many aspect for a while in a successful engine, it is only the gameplay that needs to be refined furthermore. Deathtrap, or what the idea had become, is already downloadable from Steam in a beta form. The game is still under development based on the feedback of the volunteers paying for it.
2015/01/07On the other hand good things have happened in 2014 as well. Someone, called Elder Games, who has put down numerous smaller, but rather nice games on the table, found 2014 the perfect time to release his newest development, Meridian - New World. You can find videos of the game on its official website as well as on Good Old Games and Steam where you can also buy the game from.
2015/01/05Anno, some folks tried to implement GRequiem of The VolturesG, which would have been the first episode of a series of games adapted from the adventure novels of Leslie L. Lawrence. The developer group did not succeed to finish the project that also failed brutally on a social funding site as well.
2015/01/04Do we still remember GlassFish Games? We can thank them among other games the Pranksters series. A bit longer than 5 years ago they have been attending various game expositions hoping in a brighter future. Now it seems clear though that they were forced to close the doors. Rest in piece!
2015/01/03Let's take a deep dive in the past! Back in time, not to long after the golden era of the Hungarian PC game development, development studios were rising one after the other. One of them, Nemesys Games had numerous attempts on taking a slice of the PC market pie. Such an attempt was Air Traffic Control, which was published in 2011 in the meantime. We can also find a not too positive atmosphered, but at least a good quality video of the game on YouTube.
2014/11/06Guardians of The Galaxy could not bypass the inevitable either. Zen Studios has made a pinball table out of them as well for Pinball FX2. You can watch the video advertising the table on YouTube as well.
2014/10/31Neocore Games is producing The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing games on a conveyor belt. The development studio has presented the third episode of the trilogy, The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing 3, on this year's Gamescom.
2014/10/21PlayDome has published an article about the new table for Marvel Pinball, that is an extension to Pinball FX2, the game developed by Zen Studios. The protagonist of the new table is Deadpool. The article is attempting to present all the aspects of the new table.
2014/10/18Játékok.hu has written also an evaluation about The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing, the new game of Neocore Games. The score of 8.5 emphasizes the positive atmosphere of the article.
2014/10/09GameKapocs has written a long test about The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing 2, developed by Neocore Games. At the end of the article you can also find information reagrding the different options in which you can buy the game.
2014/10/07I have the honor to introduce White Rabbit Games. We could not read much about the guys so far. Although they have a quite diverse repertoire on the Android platform. They are trying to conquer the PC platform now with Adorables. The funding of the game was originally planned to be supported by donations but it failed to raise the required amount. Nevertheless the project survived and reached a phase to be released in the United States. To the rest of the world it could come any time now. On YouTube you can also find a video presenting the game. Without it, it would be really imposible to describe what it is all about.
2014/10/06Following Marvel Pinball, Zen Studios has picked an other Marvel comic book hero. One day Deadpool had woken to realize that he became a pinball table himself. The table stickered with the beloved one of many can be downloaded for GPinball FX2. On YouTube you can also find a video presenting the new table.
2014/07/08PlayDome has published an evaluation article about The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing 2, the new game of Neocore Games.
2014/07/07CupCode Spotlight has examined the beta version of Balrum, the game of Balcony Team. In the beta version numerous beta testers had the chance to evaluate the game. The mostly positive results were shared by CupCodeGamers on YouTube presented in a video.
2014/07/06You can get games of former TopWare Interactive for a 60% discount on Good Old Games until 8th of July. This means that Dream Pinball 3D has also suffered from the effect of the benevolent event.
2014/06/04Nowadays everything is about The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing 2. Or if it is not about the newest release of Neocore Games, it is most probably about Neocore Games itself. Although it is June already, but if you know of a newstand seller that keeps old magazines be sure to pay a visit. The predecessor of the new success expectant of the development studio, The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing was enclosed as the free game of the April issue of GameStar. Of course due to the pricing of the magazine I should have put free in between quotation marks but I was too affraid it would mess up HTML encoding. If you missed out on the game when it was fresh from the oven, now there is a good chance to fill the gap.
2014/06/03The b2.0 version, so the second beta version of Balrum has been released. The Balcony Team has also released a video of the game for the occasion. This video is supposed to promote the HD resolution support of the game. This is of course obscurantism, because as we can see on the video, this all ony means that when switching our video card to HD resolution, everything will be smaller. But it is nice from the game engine to still be able to render the video still on a reasonable refresh rate.
2014/05/24With a little delay, but The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing 2, the new game of Neocore Games has arrived. PC owners can take hold of the game via Steam, where they can also find numerous new videos due to the release.
2014/05/21Zen Studios has brought a new grander expansion set for Pinball FX2. The pack rides the wave of Star Wars. The Heroes Within expansion of Star Wars Pinball consists of 4 new tables. These are the Han Solo, the Episode IV - A New Hope, the Droids and the Masters of The Force tables. There is a teaser video on Youtube of each table and of the whole pack.
2014/05/16GameKapocs has published a quiet quality interview with Csaba Baity, a stalwart member of Zen Studios. Since he has been part of the team since 2006, he knows pretty much about the functioning of the development studio, one could say. Considering that he has been working for Zen Studios for over 8 years, we can come to the conclusion, as he himself mentions as well, that he has started to gather his expertise and experience in times, when not everything was about game development in Hungary. Nowadays it is a bit different with Mesharray Digital Media School and all kinds of University courses concentrating on game development laid down in front of youngsters choosing this career.

2014/05/15The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing 2 is slowly gaining its form in the workshops of Neocore Games. Now a new helper of the protagonist is being presented to us.
2014/05/12Játékok.hu has published an interview written on-site at Zen Studios. They also tried to find out, what the future might bring to the development studio, which is currently Hungary's most standfast running team also developing for the PC platform, and what surprise they have in their pockets. Well, by the end of the interview we can find out that there is no change in direction regarding their development, but why would they change on the working recipe if this is what brings international success to them.
2014/05/09Zen Studios is manufacturing excellent pinball tables one after the other. The Super League Football is a pinball table for Pinball FX2 that can be dressed into the uniforms of various soccer clubs. It is available via the Xbox LIVE Arcade, Steam and Windows 8, or Apple App Store and Mac App Store systems. You can also find a teaser video on YouTube.
2014/02/21Not quite fresh news, but certainly good news that the development of the sequel to The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing is being carried on in an unstoppable manner in the workshop of Neocore Games. The second episode got the The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing 2 title, maybe not surprisingly but rather understandably since it will offer nothing less, but rather more of everything that we have already seen in the predecessor. Both the game and the development was picked up where it was left off in the original title. The developers were in the lucky situation not having to rethink everything since the The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing was received very well by the gamers as well as by the critics. You should never leave the trodden road for the untrodden. Especially if you know that the road is leading to success. The guys only have to make sure that all ingredients make maybe an even better balance.
2014/02/08Thanks to a weekend promotion, now Dream Pinball 3D, the game of ASK Homework, is available for only $1.79 on the website of Good Old Games.
2013/12/07During the weekend we can take hold of Digital Reality's the Haegemonia Gold Edition package, that contains the Haegemonia: Legions of Iron base game and its expansion, Haegemonia: The Solon Heritage for $2.99 on the website of Good Old Games.
2013/12/06Now you can buy The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing along with all its downloadable contents in one package from Neocore Games. There had been a video trailer released earlier this month, but in the meantime a full-power promotion video was also published revealing more detail and putting some effort in trying to hide the fact that the package provides a puny 1.5$ save that is equivalent to 7%. You can buy the otherwise excellent game and its extensions one-by-one or in a single package via Steam.
2013/10/28It seems that Neocore Games is riding the waves of the posibilities of the new age, and is surprising itself with one of the most disgusting forms of collecting money. A new character is available for The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing; the Arcane Mechanic. It costs only a puny 4 euros. The advertisiment campaign video to publicize the new character can be found on YouTube.
2013/10/27From this May, although you would not be able to find out from the website of Zen Studios, Marvel Pinball is also available for the Windows platform via Steam and Microsoft Marketplace. In December you can download a new table for the game. The table is called Doctor Strange. The video trailer for the table is available on YouTube.
2013/10/26The video trailer of the Darth Vader table, created as part of the Balance of The Force DLC for the Star Wars Pinball expansion of Pinball FX2 has been released finally. This multi-level hierarchy resembles my fresh diploma years when I ha dto explain where I got my diploma naming the University, the faculty, the major, department and degree. I think everyone is better off sharing the link to the darkest table of all times rather than trying to explain what is this a table of.
2013/10/09The Star Wars Pinball Balance of The Force DLC was released with a really short video trailer. Zen Studios's add-on for Pinball FX2 brings 3 new tables for the game. We already had a feeling that the guys will shortly start revealing more about these machines. Now they have released a new video trailer that presents the Starfighter Assault table for us.
2013/10/08Sometimes you are ought to reach back to the past. Nemesys Games did likewise. Most probably motivated by survival instincts they increased the number of compatible platfroms under their successful game, Fortix 2. From now on, the game is also available for Linux based computers via Steam.
2013/09/30Now, in the Humble Bundle we can buy among others two games developed by Digital Reality for a dicount price. Now you can take hold of the fun provided by GSineMoraG and SkyDrift even for an exchange of a ridiculous 1$.
2013/09/29The Thaumaturge DLC was released for The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing from Neocore Games. The DLC is available for download via the Steam system. On the occasion of the release of the expansion, the developers have released a trailer video as well, that you can also watch on YouTube. The campaign for the grace of the players have already begun earlier, so there has been another video out there on the Internet for weeks, that is depicting the features of Thaumaturge.
2013/09/23The plan of Zen Studios, taking a turn towards the Star Wars world with their game, GPinbal FX2G, really worked out. The Star Wars Pinball was such a success that the guys thought there is still room for expanding the downloadable contents with a similar package. The Star Wars Pinball Balance of the Force DLC will containg a Star Wars: Episode 6: Return of the Jedi, a Starfighter Assault and a Darth Vader table. You can also take a look at the trailer presenting the package on YouTube. You can also find pictures about the rest of the tables in the gallery of GameStar.
2013/09/18The funding initiative of Balcony Team on Kickstarter was closed with success. Hence, in theory, there is nothing that could stop them from finishing the development of Balrum.
2013/08/28GameStar has made a wordy interview with Neocore Games, maybe the currently most successful development studio of Hungary. Besides The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing, the game that is nowadays the source of income for the team, we can also get to know a few details of their upcoming title, Broken Sea.
2013/08/26Hungary was always strong in game development. Being a small country it enjoys very little possibility to break away with very low investment. Game development as an option is furthermore strengthened by the current economic situation. Students and volunteers can learn the ways of the profession from high standard universities, colleges or private institutions. This could be one of the reasons why by now, one-man-developments became a kind of a genre. Maybe Mascot Entertainment sounds familiar already for some of you, a development studio that Marcell Baranyai carries on his back. It is responsible for such games as Boulder Dash, a The Dark Legions, or BC Kings. Another good example of the representatives of this emerging genre is Endre Baráth, who created Dead Cyborg under the name of Etyekfilm. Now I have the opportunity to present you a new one-man-development studio embodied by Ede Tarsoly, the man behind Elder Games, who pours such games as GMeridian ? New WorldG, Shattered Origins - Guardians of Unity space simulation, or the strategy game, Arcan that we can consider to be the predecessor of Meridian - New World.
2013/08/11GameKapocs is paying a tribute to domestic PC game developments by an article series. The three articles lists the 30 best hungarian developments according to the aspects set up by the authorsof GameKapocs. The first article presents the 30-21st positions, the second article presents the 20-11th positions while the third one presents the 10-1st positions. It is of course very similar to the scoring of the freestyle figure skating. Nobody is on the same opinion of it.
2013/08/10In a discount, effective during the weekend, you can buy The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing, the development of Neocore Games for half price on Steam. If one doesn't yet already own the game, now one can save oneself some money.
2013/08/06The development of the next episode of the Imperium Galactica series was terminated. The closure has reached the gamer society in an ambivalent way, since after all we are talking about a domestic development. On the other hand, although the game was cooked in the kitchen of Digital Reality, it resembled the original game only in a very few aspects. All that is left of the game, originally designed to be an MMO strategy game, is Imperium Galactica Stargazer. The leaders of the studio, functionning as a member of Docler Holding, explained the decision with the unsatisfactory speed of the development.
2013/07/23Lőrinc L. László, or Leslie L. Lawrence, or even Frank Cockney for the real connoisseurs have produced a lot of things already. The most successful writer of Hungary has enlightened his readers with more than 100 books. Now Mystery Interactive is trying to bring one of the works of the hungarian ambassador of eastern travels and culture to life in the form of an adventure game, for that part of the gamer society who might have missed out on his enthralling stories. Requiem of The Vultures will provide quality entertainment for sure even for those who had a chance to meet the story in written form.
2013/07/21The new title of Project: It's Not True is born. The game of independent developer, Balcony Team, is now called Balrum. The guys are organizing a collecting on Kickstarter for the project. To put you in the mood of charity they have put together a video in which they present the current state of the game and explain what more they want to bring out of it.
2013/06/27As GameKapocs had promised, fulfilling their promise, they have released an article that presents The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing from Neocore Games. As opposed to the predecessors though, they have not engaged in scoring the game, although we can read between the lines that they had liked what they had seen.
2013/06/25If you have not already became tired of all the news about Neocore Games and their The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing, then this is for you for sure. Developers have announced that they are making the next episode of the game, that for now goes under the title; The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing 2.
2013/06/24PlayDome has published a game evaluation article as well about the new success of Neocore Games. Considering that The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing has received a score of 90% from the associate press, we can call the game a real success easily.
2013/06/23The first downloadable content has arrived for The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing. The Scenario DLC deploys automatically to the game with the new version 1.1.00 patch. And it is all for free. Neocore Games totally knows how to apologize for a patch that needs to be deployed. Unfortunately the DLC is PC exclusive for now.
2013/06/22We can read an evaluation article about The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing of Neocore Games on GameStar, once we have passed the endless pane of advertisements. The game have received a score of 84%, higher than the average of Steam evaluations. In the meantime the last video trailer was released. From now on we are expecting similar moving pictures from the press and fans.
2013/06/19I have the honour to present a new developer team and their upcoming title that runs under the name, Project: It's Not True. The game is being developed by two University students who formed Balcony Team. Their development has grown so much to be picked up by magazines. In case of such hobby developments one is always a little sceptic, but I wish the guys to be able to carry out something fascinating from their creation, that otherwise looks really promising.
2013/06/18Now you can buy The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing, the game developed by Neocore Games, on Steam as well. The majority of the evaluations lined up by the system gave the game a really strong score, while a couple expressed deep disappointment. That's how the game scored a mighty 74% in average by the end.
2013/06/10It feels really good to finally break the somewhat one-dimensional news stream ruled by Neocore Games with the work of another brigade. Now it seems as there were more than one development studios in Hungary in fact. On top of it we are meeting a returning team of whom we haven't been hearing for a long time. Fortix 2, developed by Nemesys Games, has suffered a big drop in price on Steam, for the biggest content of the players. On the other hand, unfortunately Nemesys Games has not yet published any other PC games, in the classic meaning of the term. We hope that this will change in the future.
2013/06/09The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing, the game of Neocore Games has been published since 22nd of May. On the occasion of the release, we have also received a new video from the game, on which we are presented with our headquarters, playing a central role in the game. This is where we can take a rest or conduct micromanagement tasks after having returned from slashing, or even defend the place in a tower defence style from intruders.
2013/05/28Pinball FX2, developed by Zen Studios, after having been available in Windows Marketplace, is now also available via Steam. You can already get it on this link.
2013/05/27Back in time, when The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing has not been released yet, Neocore Games intended to advertise its game with the release of a new video, in which they present Katarina, one of the available helpers. In the video Katarina asseverates why she is a good choice to be selected as support during the adventures of our protagonist.
2013/05/24You could have pre-ordered The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing, which will be released in May, or maybe it already has been, since April. It was just about time to announce it then. Although the full game from Neocore Games is now already available for everyone, you can still watch a video, advertising the pre-order here.
2013/05/23A new video has been released of The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing, being developed by Neocore Games. Is there anyone who has not yet heard about the game? If yes, that means that people had a life during the long weekend and were not reading Gregorius' corner. Nevertheless you can watch the video about fighting right here.
2013/05/22The wave, most probably launched by Neocore Games, according to which all Hungarian news portals dealing with PC games, and crediting themselves, should be announcing that The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing is a playable game, had reached Gamestar as well. It is not surprising that we can read hence an article on their columns dealing with the adventures of Van Helsing.
2013/05/21GameKapocs was thinking as well, that it might be worth putting The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing under the microscope. Accordingly they have examined carefully the beta version of the game from Neocore Games, and have published their exhausting evaluation accompanied with some images from the game.
2013/05/20On the columns of Játékok.hu we can reqad an evaluation of Star Wars Pinball, developed by Zen Studios. In this evaluation you can only find The Empire Strikes Back table and the table of Boba Fett, but together, as a package for Pinball FX2, they have earned a very impressive result.
2013/05/19A new table has been released for the Star Wars Pinball package driven by Pinball FX2 from Zen Studios. It is the table of Boba Fett. You can watch a video about this new pinball table here.
2013/05/18From day to day, but in our case let's rephrase this to, from month to month the news are coming to Gregorius' corner about Hungarian game developers. Domestic developer teams are coming and going, their games are flourishing, but how is all this born? How is someone going to turn out to be a game developer in Hungary? What road is ahoed of one to walk? The article published by GameStar about becoming a game developer, fine tuned to our country is giving help in the subject.
2013/05/09Let's consider The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing still to be unreleased. In this case we can also consider the article, published on the columns of Játékok.hu to be a preview of the game, just as it was back in time, more than a month ago. You can find the writing about the game of Neocore Games, colored with images on this link.
2013/05/05I had written, not that long ago, that a bit longer ago a hungarian development studio has decided, that after having conquered many of the console platforms, they would turn towards the PC platform as well a little. This team was Zen Studios, who have made a new pinball table, the Star Wars Pinball available for their Pinball FX2. Of course since I am still lagging behind history regarding the published news on my website, those of you who have already paid a visit to Zen Studio?s website the last time might have already seen this, nevertheless it's the first downloadable content for the PC version of the game. But those of you who haven't could even watch a video about it here.
2013/05/04Play Dome had published a review of the PC version of Sine Mora to the delight of Digital Reality having released the game for the PC platform as well.
2013/05/02Nice and in total silence Digital Reality has been working on something. Considering the dropped pieces of information we could easily come to the conclusion that the guys are developing no less than the third episode of the Imperium Galactica series. One thing is for sure though; they have released a little tech demo application called Imperium Galactica Stargazer. Probably the upcoming Imperium Galactica 3 will use this technology. The installer of the interactive tech demo unfortunately asks the user only one question; and that is whether one would like to install the application. It's not a very gentle move, but the mood following the installation will make it up to one.
2013/05/01We can see a new video trailer of The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing, being developed inside the groves of Neocore Games. In this gameplay video you can take a look at slashing adventures of the protagonist deep down in the jungle and wild.
2013/04/26The not-so-mindblowing nature of porting has given birth to a very original idea at Digital Reality. To keep the creative side of human beeing employed, the guys had compiled a guide on how we can make ourselves two of the aircrafts found in GSine MoreG out of Lego. It is a good way to make time fly by if you have ordered the game already and want to do something fun while downloading. Or if you have already beaten the game you might want to have an experience of a different kind.
2013/04/08The son of Abraham Van Helsing will be the protagonist of The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing. Neocore Games have raised the age of the monster hunter hero, the engine of the game, one generation higher, based ont he voting of players, who have been following the development of the game. Future tense takes place completely on the imaginary axis of time in case of this piece of news as well of course.
2013/04/07Following Zen Studios, another development studio, Digital Reality, is turning towards the PC platform. But of course they do not need introduction. Digital Reality is not getting to know the PC platform just now. We can say that they are returning to it with a category A game. After a long Calvary and having published to numerous, often said-to-be exclusive console platforms, Sine Mora had arrived to the personal computers. The game itself is a side-view, scrolling, arcade, air-flight, shoot-em-up game in 3D presentation to meet the expectations of the era. The 3D presentation really brings the most out of the mood of the game and takes nothing away from the classic game experience. The whole package is available in Hungarian dub as well. The PC version and Hungarian words are well presented in this video trailer. You can find additional videos on the official website of Sine Mora.
2013/04/06The team behind Neocore Games had announced a actor casting to which they expected all the virtual characters to come and try to persuade the development studio that they were the most appropriate for the protagonist role of The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing. You can check out the video trailer with an original-like background story on YouTube.
2013/03/23I am very happy to welcome a new hungarian development studio on Gregorius' corner. The name of Zen Studios is not unknown in the game industry. They have been delivering pinball games for years now onto different console platforms. Now they have also seem to have conquered the world of the PC platform that was ruled by ASK Homework as far as domestic development studios are concerned. Pinball FX2 has opened towards the PC since it is also available for Windows 8. Maybe the new operating system did not receive a warm welcome of users, but its Windows Marketplace has certainly brought back trust of developers towards the PC platform. Visiting the official website of Pinball FX2 you can get to know the past works of Zen Studios as well as the game itself.
2013/03/17The unit of Playdome had paid a visit to Gamescom last year, where they have also ran up againt the tent of Neocore Games. Here they had the pleasure to try the back then current state of The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing. They have written an article about all this, colored with images taken from the game. If there is anyone who did not travel to Gamescom, now the chance is here to see from this article, what they had missed out on.
2013/03/11Unfortunately the idea of Nexus 2: The Gods Awaken had failed, but how serious the developers at Most Wanted Entertainment were about it, is best presented by this little video, filmed to advertise the development, and showing a play put together almost as carefully as the game itself. Although we already know that it's not a success story, it is still worth watching the video.
2013/03/10In the meantime Might and Magic: Heroes VI Gold Edition was published. This includes the original Might and Magic: Heroes VI, developed by former Blackhole Entertainment, as well as the numerous downloadable contents published up until last year, such as the Danse Macabre expansion. We should also emphasize that after delivering the original title, Ubisoft had interrupted the cooperation with Blackhole Entertainment, and all future developments were carried out on other channels.
2013/02/13Most Wanted Entertainment has turned to a form of raising funding that is becoming more and more popular. They have registered the development of the sequel to Nexus: The Jupiter Incident, which would go by the title, Nexus 2: The Gods Awaken, on Kickstarter. They were waiting for the offers of fans and investors seeing hope in the initiation. The original game was almost published as Imperium Galactica 3, but fortunately the title was changed as it showed major difference to the Imperium Galactica series in many aspects. Nevertheless it received very good professional critics, as a very talented team was working on gamers receiving a really fine piece of art from every angle in their hands. Unfortunately though the fund raising was unsuccessful as we can already know by now.
2013/02/12Well, let's pick from the news of last September then! We left off where Neocore Games was working on a not-too-promising project of theirs. A new video was released of this development that let insight to the gameplay in a wider perspective. To be frank, it looks all nicely put together and beautifully implemented. But why must it be called GThe Amazing Adventures of Van HelsingG? The only downside of the concept maybe.
2012/10/06Back in time, a teaser video was published of Imperium Galactica 2 due to the iPad release of the game. The creators are now revealing how this trailer was put together at Digital Reality.
2012/09/03There were not that many hungarian developments being represented at Gamescom this year. Only Neocore Games was invited for the exposition, where they had presented The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing for the public. You can take a look at the photos shot on the event on thre website of the renewed PC Dome magazine in company of an article.
2012/08/07You can find an evaluation of SkyDrift, the development of Digital Reality on the columns of GameStar. Although the game has been published long ago before having written the article, nonetheless we can be sure that its content was not born by the first flame.
2012/07/15We have already said a couple of words about the new development of Neocore Games, that the studio has taken a completely new direction with. Up to now we could only fumble in the gloom. But now! ...nothing has really changed. A new video has been released from The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing. This means that we got one step closer to see what this game, expected to be the next blockbuster of the development studio, is going to turn out to be. Many of the visitors still cannot associate the title with the game and visual representation. So far it seems that the game will drown in its concept. It might be a good idea to rethink everything. After all not much time ha passed since the announcement and the game could still change in a lot of ways.
2012/07/14GameKapocs does not want to evaluate Bang Bang Racing. They have rather published a review on their columns. The article paints a rather a positive image of the racing game by Digital Reality.
2012/07/13Bang Bang Racing was released by Digital Reality, not long ago. The game does not aim at the mainstream of PC game players, but is a gem in its own category for sure. The pleasing looks only emphasize the fun provided by the genre of the game. So far I have only heard good about the game, and what I have seen was also convincing. As expected, now evaluations about the game are appearing one after the other. Magazines are sharing their views on the game one by one. Both players and trade press received Bang Bang Racing well. Now on the other hand Játékok.hu has published an article, at the end of which the game earned a not too promising mediocre score. If you want to know more about the game before buying, read the thoughts of the dark side as well beforehand.
2012/07/03PC Dome has written a short article about the common child of Digital Reality and Playbox, Bang Bang Racing on their online portal.
2012/06/23In the May issue of PC Guru you can read an article about Defenders of Ardania. The development of Most Wanted Entertainment did not achieve a big success at all.
2012/06/17GameStar have written a pretty large article about The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing, the game being formed in the studios of Neocore Games. In the article they present the current status of development as well as some new screenshots to the gamers passing by.
2012/06/12Neocore Games have ignited the rockets. Just after the announcement of their upcoming title, The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing they have uncovered another development of theirs. The new project is going to be a tactical-RPG alloy called Broken Sea. Unfortunately aside 2 concept arts there is nothing more to show or say to the public.
2012/06/11Bang Bang Racing had been released. The top-down view arcade racing game of Digital Reality is sold via Steam with a 15% discount just now on this link.
2012/06/02Neocore Games is working on a new title after taking an unusual turn in their direction. A shoemaker should make shoes they say. On the contrary, the guys are leaving their field of master to head towards the world of action-RPG. Currently they have started to work on The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing. The development is in a very advanced state since it was only announced a couple of days ago, and the game already has an official website, you can read posts in the developer's blog and watch the first video trailer as well. This all implies that the game uses the same engine used in previous games of Neocore Games. According to forum posts all over the Internet, the audience is not satisfied with the asian looks of the protagonist.
2012/05/29Bang Bang Racing had received a release date. The PC version of the product from Digital Reality and Playbox will make to the shelves of shops on the 6th of June.
2012/05/22Now, to go to more pleasant waters, let's watch a new video about Digital Reality's Bang Bang Racing, the Vantage-Point Trailer!
2012/05/21Sad news, but GMight and Magic - Heroes VIG is changing developers. The hungarian Blackhole Entertainment will be replaced by german Limbic Entertainment. By itself it should not be by all means a negative piece of information, especially not after the release of the game, since we could beleive that there is simply a project change at the development studio. Of course it is hard to explain why a team would stop supporting a game for money after the hard part is done. The picture is further emphasized by the rumours, that BlavkHole Entertainment went bankrupt. After all it would be sad news but not unprecedented, that a hungarian development studio goes bankrupt after a larga-scale project. Not even with games like Armies of Exigo, Warhammer: Mark of Chaos or Warhammer: Mark of Chaos - Battle March behind it.
2012/05/20In the March issue of PC Guru you can read an article about King Arthur 2. The development of Neocore Games had received 88% at the end of the four-page-long article.
2012/05/19In the April issue of GameStar you can read an article about Defenders of Ardania. The development of Most Wanted Entertainment had received 72% which makes this the highest the game have scored so far according to all the evaluations I have read so far.
2012/05/18I rarely speak about Digic Pictures, although the guys have done a lot to be noted. We can also say that luckily they are working over the effort on pouring out beautiful creations. Of course there is more than luck to obtain orders in such quantities. It also requires skills, which they have plenty. Digic Pictures is a hungarian studio specialized in CGI graphics and videos. They have made cutscenes for numerous foreign and domestic developments. About many one would not know the hungarian origin of, unless being proficient in the topic. Not long ago, they have released a reference video of a medley from their past works. The Játékok.hu portal has also made an interview with them.
2012/05/16One of the hungarian PC games, receiving maybe the greatest professional recognition has been ported to iPad just now. Imperium Galactica 2, now in the hands of tablet owners, can be considered a classic now from Digital Reality. Examples show that the lives of PC games holding real quality and value can be prolonged by porting them to different platforms. The same pathway of life was walked by 1nsane, which was published by Invictus Games under the title, 4x4 Jam in the AppStore.
2012/05/15The first review of Defenders of Ardania has been released. The article of Játékok.hu, in accordance with the feedback of international press, rated the game mediocre. It looks like, the return of Most Wanted Entertainment to the PC platform was not a resounding success. Behind the nice graphics, there are numerous howlers in the planning of the gameplay, that could not be balanced even by the new ideas introduced to the genre.
2012/05/14After the release of the full game, the demo version of Defenders of Ardania, the new development of Most Wanted Entertainment is available as well.
2012/05/10Defenders of Ardania, the new game of Most Wanted Entertainment has been released. You get get the game in a box or via Steam as well.
2012/05/08On the 12th week of the year, Might and Magic: Heroes VI, the fantasy role-playing-game of Blackhole Entertainment had placed in the 9th position on the sales lists of Hungary in the PC category.
2012/04/28And again, we can read a new article about King Arthur 2. This time PC Dome had revealed a writing about the game of Neocore Games.
2012/04/22On the 7th week of the year, Might and Magic: Heroes VI, the fantasy role-playing-game of Blackhole Entertainment had placed in the 18th position on the sales lists of Hungary in the PC category.
2012/04/21There is a new video available from Bang Bang Racing. This new short film presents the obstacles finding the racer during playing in the new game of Digital Reality and Playbox.
2012/04/18You can read an article about King Arthur 2, the new development of Neocore Games on the website of GameKapocs as well. From this many articles you can get a pretty whole image about the game.
2012/04/06On the 6th week of the year, Might and Magic: Heroes VI, the fantasy role-playing-game of Blackhole Entertainment had placed in the 17th position on the sales lists of Hungary in the PC category.
2012/04/04There are many people who consider 1nsane being the most successful game of Invictus, that the developer team have failed to outperform or, according to some people, even to meet the standard of. It seems that the journalists at PC Dome are close to this belief, since they highlighted 1nsane, as one of the best hungarian developments of the time. It is for sure that the game can still provide fun for hours. You might like checking out the article.
2012/04/02GameStar has written an evaluation of King Arthur 2 as well. I can't even recall the last time I read such a long article on an online gaming magazine. After all this evaluation seem to support the thoughts of Jatekok.hu according to shich the game prmoises to be an excellent pastime. All in all, the game of Neocore Games scored 9.3 at the end.
2012/03/31King Arthur 2 has recieved a collectors edition. Neocore Games have placed an issue of the game itself, the sword of King Arthur with the logo of the game engraved, an A2 sized poster, a T-shirt with the King Arthur 2 logo on it and a copy of the King Arthur movie on DVD. All this is offered in a nicely produced engraved metal box for the warlords.
2012/03/30We can read a quite large game test about King Arthur 2 on the pages of Jatekok.hu. At the end of the article, colored with dozens of images, we can find the score of Neocore Games reached on the evaluation of the game, which may look almost hyperbolically positive. Suspicious readers could even think that this is some kind of a paid commercial, although the last dozens of lines of the article does nothing more than apologizing for this. On the other hand I myself too find it easy to believe that a country that made a strategy game so complex, called Imperium Galactica might like a complex strategy game called King Arthur 2.
2012/03/27Even according to the published survey of PC Dome, we can say that the best domestic development of last year was Blackhole Entertainment's Might and Magic: Heroes VI. Processing the votes of the readers of the magazine the results show that the hungarian audience ingested only one development only in one category among the best three. Might and Magic: Heroes VI though placed first in the best strategy category.
2012/03/26This year the Game Developers Forum was held at 8th of February. I totally missed the event so I can only talk about it in past tense. What I could find out is that from Hungarian PC game developers Zsombor Fekete, independent game developer, from Nemesys Games Szabolcs Józsa and Zach Zebrowsky and from Invictus Games, Péter Gazsó appeared as lecturers.
2012/03/25The last video trailer was released for King Arthur 2. You can find the video on YouTube as well. There is no reason to panic though. This only means that from now on these trailer videos will be released in the form of jostler videos. It will deduct practically nothing from the artistic value. Furthermore fanatic players will be able to produce moving pictures from the game instead as well as Neocore Games.
2012/03/24The demo version of King Arthur 2 has been released. If you would like to test how the game runs on your desktop at home before investing into the strategy of Neocore Games, now you can do it. To be more precised, you would have been able to do it for weeks now, but I only noticed the fact recently. Real fanatics probably already own the full game by now. Anyways, let this piece of news stand here.
2012/03/23King Arthur 2, the game of Neocore Games has been released.
2012/03/22Since the development of Nadirim was taken over by Twisted Tribe from Digital Reality, I haven't been really tracing the events around the game on Gregorius' corner. But it might be worth mentioning, that the hungarian language version has been finished already. As the language pack has arrived in the company of numerous major world languages I'm pretty sure that there was some influence of the hungarian past and of the couple of hungarian artists still working on the game at Twisted Tribe.
2012/03/21Let's take a close look at the summarized sales results of last year. Let's find out how the domestic games performed on the Hungarian market. Unfortunately according to results there is only one development close to the top of the sales lists, and only on the 27th position. That is Might and Magic: Heroes VI by Blackhole Entertainment.
2012/03/12On the 52nd week of last year, Might and Magic: Heroes VI, the fantasy role-playing-game of Blackhole Entertainment had placed in the 16th position on the sales lists of Hungary in the PC category.
2012/03/09In a short video edit we can now take an insight to the car park of Bang Bang Racing, the new development of Digital Reality.
2012/02/24The official website of King Arthur 2 has been opened. Watchful people have noticed this already for sure, but even less watchful people may have noticed it because it's news of the almost far past. The central link to the game at Gregorius' corner has now been updated according to this address.
2012/02/14On the 51th week of last year, Might and Magic: Heroes VI, the fantasy role-playing-game of Blackhole Entertainment had placed in the 18th position on the sales lists of Hungary in the multiplatform category. The game placed 14th in the PC category on the same week.
2012/02/13On the 50th week of last year, Might and Magic: Heroes VI, the fantasy role-playing-game of Blackhole Entertainment had placed in the 17th position on the sales lists of Hungary in the PC category.
2012/02/12In the January issue of PC Guru you can read an article about SkyDrift, the air racing game of Digital Reality.
2012/02/10It was back in 2004 when Invictus Games have published Santa Ride, a game available for download for free. It was meant to present the engine of their upcoming title, GCross Racing ChampionshipG, in the form of a small game, dressed in winter holidays. Couple of years ago its sequel, Santa Ride 2, have arrived as well. Now, after 7 years, the guys have remastered the game using the Unity engine, making it playable from your browser. Its environment and gameplay have also been altered to provide some replayability. Donations made through the game is offered by the development studio for charity reasons.
2012/02/09Tightly not, but vaguely the following is rather relevant to hungarian game development. The Budapest based Digic Pictures have won the competition of Video Game Awards in the game trailer category. The guys have created numerous videos to several hungarian and foreign game studios, always in a world-class quality. Their partners include Blackhole Entertainment for the videos of Armies of Exigo, Warhammer: Mark of Chaos or its expansion, Warhammer: Mark of Chaos - Battle March. Now, they have gained the statue impersonating one of the most highly acclaimed professional awards for the making of the E3 trailer of Assassin's Creed: Revelations.
2012/02/08On the 49th week of last year, Might and Magic: Heroes VI, the fantasy role-playing-game of Blackhole Entertainment had placed in the 18th position on the sales lists of Hungary in the multiplatform category. The game placed 13th in the PC category on the same week.
2012/02/07With a slight lag, but I would still like to share with you the link to second part of the interview with CyberphobX, introduced earlier. You can read further details about the development of Traffic Manager. It is useful and interesting to have some insight to the everyday life of a small, domestic development studio.
2012/01/27The virtues of Might and Magic: Heroes VI is being unfold in a four-page-long article in the last December issue of PC Guru. It is an article larger than expected for a hungarian development, which is fairly positive about the game. In the final evaluation, the development of Neocore Games had received a mighty 80%.
2012/01/25In the last November issue of PC Guru we can read an article about Ignite, the new game of Nemesys Games. The three-page-long article is fairly detailed for an arcade-style, car racing game. Afterall, the hungarian development reached a quite impressive 76% on the evaluation in the end.
2012/01/13To the December issue of GameStar you will find enclosed two of the below mentioned games developed by CyberphobX, the Police Simulator and the Traffic Manager enclosed as a full-game appendix. You can also find an CyberphobX.html">interview with the developers on the pages of GameStar.
2012/01/04And now the turn is on the newswes development of CyberphobX, the Police Simulator 2. The shear existence of the sequel to Police Simulator prooves that the german market was really buying the original title. Fundamental change compared to the previous episode is that instead of a 2D upper view, now you can manage your policemen in an isometric environemnt. You can find images implying this on the official website of the game as well as three videos. All three videos are the same but they come in english, german and hungarian as well. This implies that the game will be released in hungarian language in Hungary too.
2012/01/03Now I'm going to take the next game in line from CyberphobX, the Traffic Manager! This game was also intended for the german market, which had been grateful by granting numerous awards in Germany similar to Police Simulator mentioned before. You can find two videos on the official website of the game, they are the same but one in english and the other in german.
2012/01/02Let's see the second game from CyberphobX, the Police Simulator! The game was originally published by the title, Police: Die Polizei Simulation. It was intended for the german market. The background story of the development is that it was completely rewritten by CyberphobX due to the changed expectations after signing an aggreement with the german publisher, Rondomedia. You can find two videos on the official website of the game, or here and here.
2011/12/31The website is going to become a bit more colorful. In the next couple of days I am going to deal with the works of CyberphobX. Let's take a look at their first game first, that is already out of the line. Veteran Combat is not really new on Gregorius' corner since I have already talked about it, even if it was not called like this then. The game was published back in 2007 by a team called Alpha Tauri Interactive who later reduced to a one-man development studio, and under a new name, CyberphobX has re-published the game under a new title, Veteran Combat. You can even find a video of the game to get to know it better or to recall your memories if you have already met Cease Fire before.
2011/12/22I would like to draw your attention to a new hungarian development studio. CyberphobX has a quite large history despite being a new development studio. They have been producing several games already. I will talk about the products of this team working mainly for the german market in more detail later. I will also make sure that the links to the references of their works will be added to the Links section.
2011/12/15In the November issue of PC Guru we can read a short article about SkyDrift, the new game of Digital Reality. The one-page-long article is anything but detailed, although we should not expect details by all means about an arcade-style, airplane racing game. Afterall, the hungarian development reached a quite impressive 80% on the evaluation in the end.
2011/12/14On the 48th week of the year, Might and Magic: Heroes VI, the fantasy role-playing-game of Blackhole Entertainment had placed in the 14th position on the sales lists of Hungary in the multiplatform category. The game placed 10th in the PC category on the same week. Christmas shopping seems to have increased the sales numbers of the product relative to the foreign games. The hungarian market lagged the procurement of the domestic product until the Holidays.
2011/12/13Bad news have come from Digital Reality. The developers have announced that their newest successor-wannabe, Sine Mora will not be released for the PC platform after Microsoft had bought the exclusive publishing rights for itself. Hence the game will not be released for the Playstation or Nintendo platforms either. Only the XBox360 owners can wait for the game from now on. The slightest hope is maintained by the fact, that Microsoft is wishing to combine its XBox Live and Games for Windows web-stores. But in the meantime we will have to accept that we will not be playing Sine Mora on the PC.
2011/12/09Hardwired has announced a rare competition, to which you can submit your application by the 31st of March. These can be background images and playable maps to Might and Magic: Heroes VI. What makes this competition, that can be linked to Blackhole Entertainment, more exciting is that if you design your maps, submit them and win, you might even win the Steam code to Might and Magic: Heroes VI. This way you could even download the game from the Steam system that you could have designed your map legally with. Although the prize is kind of selfexplanatory in the given situation, the road to it might need some explanation.
2011/12/06On the 47th week of the year, Might and Magic: Heroes VI, the fantasy role-playing-game of Blackhole Entertainment had placed in the 18th position on the sales lists of Hungary in the multiplatform category. The game placed 13th in the PC category on the same week. The game continues to drop lower and lower on the lists unfortunately.
2011/12/05Digital Reality is working on a new game. Since Digital Reality has been melted into the Dolcler Holding empire it has combined its development function with publishing. Now the studio is acting in both scopes in one project. Digital Reality is dressing Bang Bang Racing into a visual dress of the standards of today. The game was developed for mobile platforms by Playbox originally. Now it will be brought to modern consoles as well as to the PC. Due to the announcement of the development, a debut trailer was also released.
2011/12/04Strolling around on Steam we might have smelled the marketing rocket of Blackhole Entertainment flying accross. The release of Might and Magic: Heroes VI via the Steam system is advertised on the front page. If you find online distribution more convenient than taking a walk for the boxed version, then you don't have to bother with the packaging now.
2011/12/03The downloadable contents were released for the PC version of SkyDrift as well. Digital Reality had a little problem distributing the game on Steam, hence it came a little late causing the fast release of both downloads already available for the console versions, the Gladiator Multiplayer Pack and the Extreme Fighters Premium Airplane Pack. The first one was introduced with a 2.99 Euros and the latter with a 1.99 Euros price.
2011/12/02On the 46th week of the year, Might and Magic: Heroes VI, the fantasy role-playing-game of Blackhole Entertainment had placed in the 15th position on the sales lists of Hungary in the multiplatform category. The game placed 11th in the PC category on the same week.
2011/12/01After long waiting, and a lot of hard working and negotiations I guess, SkyDrift is finally out on the PC platform as well. The delay was most probably caused by the longer- and harder-than-thought procedure of Digital Reality overcoming the obstacle of becoming an official partner of Steam. But the hard work has its fruits, since from now on we could find the games developed or distributed by Digital Reality on Steam as well. Celebrating the event, the 3rd episode of the SkyDrift developer's video diary was published. Unfortunately though, due to the electronic distribution the game cannot be placed under the tree.
2011/11/30It seems like the marketing machine of Might and Magic: Heroes VI by Blackhole Entertainment has fired the rockets. If you'd turn on the tap at Index.hu, the game would pour from it. Now you can also read about Might and Magic: Heroes VI on the virtual columns of the hungarian news portal. It gives a short historical overview of the franchise.
2011/11/29The release of King Arthur 2 is approaching. Its imminence is best shown by Neocore Games, the developers, releasing the first 2 episodes of the developer's video-diary at once. In the first episode Orsolya Tóth, the public relations manager of the studio and Linda Bozorádi, tester are presenting all the aspects the game became better than its predecessor. In the second video next to Orsolya, Péter Szabó, designer, and Viktor Juhász, writer role in presenting the contruction of the game's new world.
2011/11/28On the 45th week of the year, Might and Magic: Heroes VI, the fantasy role-playing-game of Blackhole Entertainment had placed in the 9th position on the sales lists of Hungary in the multiplatform category. The game placed 7th in the PC category on the same week.
2011/11/27Nemesys Games has released the demo version of Ignite. I would like to mention two things in the name of balanced information. The first one is, that the game's system requirements are fairly low so the game runs on lower performance configurations. The graphics can still be said to be nice. The other thing is that the camera views turn out to be really monotonous. In every each one of th them it is either the asphalt or the car itself that is in the way of clear view of the track ahead.
2011/11/26On the 44th week of the year, Might and Magic: Heroes VI, the fantasy role-playing-game of Blackhole Entertainment had placed in the 8th position on the sales lists of Hungary in the multiplatform category. The game placed 7th in the PC category on the same week.
2011/11/25An interview was released with András Klujber, the lead designer of Most Wanted Entertainment. The journalist of PC Dome asked his partner about the release of Defenders of Ardania. Naturally, during such a conversation there are always some words spoken about the past and future of the given development studio. We can find out for example, that Most Wanted Entertainment, currently working on hand-held consoles, is ready to make a long-term return to the PC platform depending on the success of Defenders of Ardania. It would be nice to know more about the release of the game on PC.
2011/11/24Fortunately there are things happening other than the ado about Might and Magic: Heroes VI. There is for example Ignite, the game who's development was started by Nemesys Games back in time, quite long ago. This development was written about on the columns of PC Dome. Don't let yourself be fooled by the opening thoughts of the article! As opposed to the rumors, Nemesys Games is not responsible only for Fortix and Fortix 2, they were also producing Road to Fame and Army Racer. But these latter games were published under the flag of 576 Media. But still, Ignite is not the first in its genre.
2011/11/23Let's continue with the Might and Magic: Heroes VI news dumping. GameKapocs has also written a long review about the development of Blackhole Entertainment. On the other hand it is more interesting to see the army of comments below, which are probably more frank, but look just as biased as the review. Sometimes on one side, sometimes on the other. But everyone seem to find something positive about the game.
2011/11/22Nowadays almost everything is about the freshly launched Might and Magic: Heroes VI. We shall be about it too! Everything includes PC Dome, who has published a long review of Blackhole Entertainment's game. If you would not like to bump into any surprises in the game, you should rather read the review than getting disappointed after buying.
2011/11/22The beta testing of King Arthur 2, the new strategy role-playing-game of Neocore Games is launching soon. Now you can sign up for it. Since the deadline is today, if you want to be a part of the closed testing, you should really hurry up.
2011/11/21We've talked a lot about the hungarian sales lists. Might and Magic: Heroes VI, the development of Blackhole Entertainment placed really well on these. But it is a rare occasion when a domestic product can place well on a foreign sales lits. Might and Magic: Heroes VI have earned this now since on the 42nd week of the year it placed 7th on the brittish sales list of the PC category.
2011/11/20It's been a while since we have heard about Defenders of Ardania, the tower defense game of Most Wanted Entertainment. Now a new video trailer was published of the game. PC Dome has also written a large article about the development. In the past months despite of the great silence the game was taken to and presented at various events due to which, several videos were released as well. Now we can watch them on YouTube as well.
2011/11/19On the 43rd week of the year, Might and Magic: Heroes VI, the fantasy role-playing-game of Blackhole Entertainment had placed in the 5st position on the sales lists of Hungary in the multiplatform category. The game placed 3rd in the PC category on the same week.
2011/11/18On the 42nd week of the year, Might and Magic: Heroes VI, the fantasy role-playing-game of Blackhole Entertainment had opened in the 1st position on the sales lists of Hungary in the multiplatform category. It's not surprising afterall that the game placed 1st in the PC category on the same week.
2011/11/16We can find a long article on Jatekok.hu portal about the testing of Might and Magic: Heroes VI. The article mostly tries to present the changes introduced by Blackhole Entertainment compared to the previous episode. The meticulously inspected game has received a moderately high score in the end.
2011/11/15Earlier I wrote a couple of words about the new physics engine in development by Invictus Games. Now a video has been published as well that you can find on YouTube. Fortunately, in the very last section of the video description we can find the computer game term.
2011/11/14A hungarian comic book initiative, the Swords have been launched, which guides the readers into the fantasy world. The reason why I mention this here, on Gregorius' corner, is that a copy of Blackhole Entertainment's Might and Magic: Heroes VI will be raffled among those who register on the website of Swords. After the registration, you will also need to join the Swords Facebook group, where you will need to share with the organizers, in which 576 Kbyte store you will be able to take your copy of the game from.
2011/11/13It has been a while since Invictus Games have not given a sign of life on the PC market. In the recent past they have been developing more on handheld console platform, as in the case of Race of Champions. Since numerous columnar members have left the development studio, momentum seems to have dropped and the studio have altered its mainstream. Invictus Games was accused several times of building physics and game engines whoes stability and performance pulls back the value of their games, which are claimed to be revolutionary in all other aspects. Future is promising in a way, since Invitus Games is once again building a new universal engine that could be used in driving education and professional simulations. we can only hope that PC gamers will sooner or later see something coming from this. All the best for Invictus!
2011/11/12The October issue of GameStar was published. Of course not now, but back in October. I'm again a little behind news. The main point is that in the October issue of GameStar you can find a detailed review of Might and Magic: Heroes VI being developed by Blackhole Entertainment.
2011/11/11The world of Nadirim has been launched. Although the game, recalling the atmosphere of the tales of the 1001 nights, is now taken care of by Twisted Tribe, let's not forget that it was taken over from Digital Reality after the launch of the beta demo version. Even since then there are numerous hungarian graphics and professionals coloring the team.
2011/11/10Blackhole Entertainment have organized a press open day where all reporters could satisfy their desires to get to know about everything that is allowed. GameKapocs was also present at this important day, and have put together an large article, colored with images, about the creators of Might and Magic: Heroes VI, the Warhammer: Mark of Chaos series or Armies of Exigo. If you are interested about how a day goes by at this Hungarian development studio then you should read the article.
2011/11/10This weekend, that is from today until Sunday midnight, you can buy from Good Old Games the Haegemonia: Gold Edition, which contains both Digital Reality's original Haegemonia: Legions of Iron game, and its expansion, Haegemonia: The Solon Heritage, with a 60% discount.
2011/11/09It seems like that Dead Cyborg have redeemed the promises, and have met the expectations of both the developer, Endre Baráth, and the players. We have already talked about the first episode of the product, ran under the name of Etyekfilm, here on Gregorius' corner. The creator of the game then said that he will make and publish the next episode if it triggers the adequate interest and will bring positive remarks from the critics. Well, I am happy to announce that the next episode of this first-person adventure game, bringing back the mood of the old text-based adventure games, was just released. As a consequence, two videos were released of the game, one is a teaser trailer, the other one is presenting the gameplay.
2011/11/08Due to the release of Might and Magic: Heroes VI, Blackhole Entertainment have published a new video of the game. The new launch trailer, which is to announce the start of selling the game turned out to be much more refined than the previous couple of videos. If you like the mood of the fantasy world, you should take a look at this film. But if you want to know more about the game itself, you will not learn much from this CGI video.
2011/11/06Ignite, the car racing game of Nemesys Games have received an offical release date. It will be released in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, so in the German-speaking part of Europe, in a boxed edition. These countries own the bigges market of PC games in the area. In all other countries you can buy the game through Steam. If everything went according to plan, then since the 28th of October.
2011/11/05Short after the release of Might and Magic: Heroes VI, the new game of Blackhole Entertainment, you can buy an auxiliary item also enclosed in the collector's edition of the game. This item is a brilliantly formed statue of a quarter of a meter embodying one of the heroes of the game, Michael Archangel.
2011/10/28Those who have paid a visit to any place where they are selling PC games in a box could have seen Might and Magic: Heroes VI, the game mentioned also in the previous post, on the shelves already. The game developed by Blackhole Entertainment have been published and enriches the ever-shrinking group of games also published in a box.
2011/10/27A new video trailer was published from Might and Magic: Heroes VI, being developed by Blackhole Entertainment. The makers are still not trying to expands the boundaries of arts in this new video but it is for sure better than their last piece of work.
2011/10/23You can find a game test about Digital Reality's SkyDrift on the pages of GameKapocs. The authors have written a quite positive review of the game that corresponds to the comments below the article.
2011/10/17Unfortunately there is still no positive response regarding the PC release of SkyDrift, the game developed by Digital Reality. The negotiations are still taking place with Steam. On the other hand good news is that there is already the second downloadable content being released for the console version. There is also a video released to this Gladiator pack which we will consider as a trailer video to the PC version then instead until better.
2011/10/11An exclusive video trailer was released from Might and Magic: Heroes VI. The quality of the video, dedicated to Gamespot, did not meet the expected requirements, neither on technical nor artistic terms. To make it sound even more politically correct, nobody would have been hurt if this video never hits the public. But to say something good as well we can associate to this video, the game of BlackHole Games will be released the day after tomorrow.
2011/10/02Apparently the success of the Fortix series have brought the long awaited rise for Nemesys Games. There have been numerous developments carried out on the machines of the development studio already. The parting of 576 Media though have stopped the carriage for the guys seemingly, and some partially finished and almost completely finished projects were left on the hard drives. The studio yet have tried to introduce a new series brand to stay alive. This was Fortix that have won serious scores on the circus floor of critics. And now finally with the co-operation of Just a Game one of their long dusting games is getting the spotlight, Ignite. We could already see trailer videos of it back in the beginning of this Spring.
2011/10/01On the pages of Játékok.hu you can read a game test about Digital Reality's SkyDrift. The game is much more popular among critics according to the remarks so far than Dead Block, also developed by Digital Reality.
2011/09/30With the publishing of SkyDrift Digital Reality has released the last official video trailer of the game in the same time. This piece of work now truly reflects the atmosphere of real competition, we can feel that the video dipped in sugar has conformed to the product itself. The hungarian slogan was decided on in an open competition won by Richárd Sipos who has earned a download key to the game and numerous Digital Reality relics. "You shall be the lord of skies! Dare or win, you have the air!"
2011/09/29You can read an exhausting review of King Arthur: Fallen Champions on the pages of Játékok.hu. The article really takes the effort to examine the game from every angle. Although sometimes it sounds too positive, almost biased, it still mentions all negative aspects factually. It looks like, the game of Neocore Games deserves all praise despite the fact that it is only a subproject connecting the two episodes of a bigger series.
2011/09/28I would say now that we have found out the release date of SkyDrift, developed by Digital Reality. On the contrary, the fact is that the game has been released since the 9th of September. So it turns out as well that the game is going to be released to the PC platform for sure. Also, Sine Mora developed in co-operation with Grasshopper Manufacture seems to be more and more certain to arrive to the PC as well in the future.
Update:
The PC version has not been published yet. Although it is completely done, supposedly Digital Reality is still battling with becoming an official Steam partner.
2011/09/27The second episode of the video diary of SkyDrift, the airplane-racing game developed by Digital Reality, was released. In this video we can listen to Peter Petrekovits, just like in the previous episode, but this time in a much slower pace and with a slight unconfidence. The video becomes quiet boring from the middle already, but we can find out at least with what machines can we chase each other in the game.
2011/09/26A review with a very positive point of view was published on the columns of PC Dome about King Arthur: Fallen Champions, the game developed by Neocore Games. The article well summarizes the story behind the development and gives a sneak preview into the atmosphere of the game.
2011/09/25The July issue of PC Guru holds a test article about Fortix 2, developed by Nemesys Games. Now that this issue is really old it might only interest collectors of the topic slightly. In the same issue we can read an article about Battle vs. Chess as well. Only a few people know that the game was originally developed by A.S.K. Homework and the PC version was later finished by Gaijin Entertainment. A.S.K. Homework received the job to port the game to the different console platforms at the end.
2011/09/24There is going to be an Imperium Galactica 2 competition in which entrepreneurs can match their skills. The competition will take place between the 5th of October and the 1st of November. The deadline for signup is the 1st of October. You must submit your application via e-mail to the imi6_at_freemail.hu address. It is good to see that there is still life in the more than decade-old game of Digital Reality.
2011/09/23A preview article was published on the columns of PC Dome about Sine Mora, the new game developed by Digital Reality. From the article we can also find out that the console platform versions of the game will support the 3D televisions and projectors as well. We still don't know how many of these new features will make it to the PC version though. For that we need to wait a little more.
2011/09/22A new video trailer was released from King Arthur 2, in which we can take a look at the battle aspect of the game being developed by Neocore Games. The short moving picture emphasizes on the fantasy elements of the game.
2011/09/21About a month ago, King Arthur: Fallen Champions was released by Neocore Games. There is no reason not to buy it.
2011/09/20The demo version of Might and Magic: Heroes VI have been released. Now it is awaiting the judgement in the hands of the public. If you are hesitating on weather to buy the game or not, make sure to download the demo first. Considering the quality put down on the table by Blackhole Entertainment so far, it will not dissuade you from buying.
2011/09/19You can find an article about the press release of Sine Mora, developed by Digital Reality on Játékok.hu. The article is rather old than recent but it is worth adding it to the archive.
2011/09/18New screenshots have been released from King Arthur 2. The images presenting the various environments were also shared with the viewers by Neocore Games on the pages of PC Dome.
2011/09/14Digital Reality has turned on the rockets. Their game, Dead Block was just released not long ago. They have another development undergoing, GSky DriftG. But I have the chance to announce yet another new game. With the co-operation Grasshopper Manufacture they are also working on a side-scrolling shooting airplane game, Sine Mora. The game is most probably based on the engine and experience gained during the development of SkyDrift. You can check out all the available media, images, videos already released of the game on its official website or on the website of Digital Reality. The reason why this game has not yet been listed here on this website is because there have been only console implementations announced officially. But now it seems that once the console versions would pay enough, the game will be released for the PC as well.
2011/09/11If you are already very excited about the topic, you most probably have already found the trailer video of Might and Magic: Heroes VI published at Gamescom 2011. And if you still need a push to become all excited, then you can find the teaser released by Neocore Games here.
2011/09/08The Nexus name is to revive. Most Wanted Entertainment have decided to breathe life into the title and make the sequel to Nexus: The Jupiter Incident. The PR machine announces the game being under development. The truth is on the other hand behind the scenes is that the developers are currently looking for funding. They are using Games Plant to receive donations, investment or pre-ordering in the amount of 400,000 Euros. We wish the guys success and hope that we can soon add the title to the upcoming games officially.
2011/09/06The August issue of Gamestar has been released. It is not news in itself since I'm still lagging three weeks behind today. But I'm sure there are people who had not subscribed to the magazine but are still interested in Hungarian developments. This issue includes an article about King Arthur 2, developed by Neocore Games.
2011/09/04A really short video trailer of a video trailer of Might and Magic: Heroes VI was published. The short film was continued as well. You can find it easily but sooner or later I will add a hyperlink here as well. I am still somewhat lagging behind events. Anyways, if someone has not yet checked out this video made for the game of Blackhole Entertainment, be sure to take a look at it. It's a beautiful piece of work.
2011/09/03Might and Magic: Heroes VI, developed by Blackhole Entertainment, is being delayed again. The amount of the delay is decreasing exponentially though, so we will get the game into our hands soon. The new deadline is the 13th of October. The developers would like to correct all issues raised during the open test period of the game by this date.
2011/09/01It was not yesterday that Lionheart: Kings' Crusade - Arabian Nights was released. It was delayed a little but not this much. I completely forgot about it. Maybe some people did too so the information could still be valuable.
2011/08/31I have told you earlier about that Neocore Games is combining the pleasant with the useful. They will kill time for us until their next big thing, King Arthur 2 is ready to blow. They surprise the fanatics with a game that processes the time between the original King Arthur title and its sequel. It fits them perfectly since they can implement this smaller project quickly and get funding from us to make King Arthur 2 even much better than the original game. A new trailer video was just released from this extra project, King Arthur: Fallen Champions.
2011/08/30The first episode of the developers's video diary has been published by Digital Reality in which they speak about how they have been working on the maps and terrain of SkyDrift at one of the development studios of Hungary with the longest history.
2011/08/29Dead Block, the new game of Digital Reality, in which we need to take care of zombies in various, clever ways has been published.
2011/08/28You might already know Endre Baráth, who is well noted for his computer generated animation short films, if you are into this branch of creative arts. Now I not only have the opportunity to introduce him to you as a one-person development studio, but I also have the privilege to announce that his first product as a PC game has already been published under the brand of Etyekfilm. You should visit the official website of Dead Cyborg, as you can find out a lot about the creator of this first-person adventure game, summoning the atmosphere of old text-based adventure games, and his product.
2011/08/17A longer preview article was published on PC Dome about Might and Magic: Heroes VI, the new game of Blackhole Entertainment. The article is colored by numerous images taken from the game.
2011/07/29An article was published on PC Dome about the King Arthur Collection, containing the original King Arthur game, its two expansions, the King Arthur: The Saxons and the King Arthur: The Druids as well as the two downloadable contents, the Knights and Vassals and the Legendary Artifacts.

2011/07/05The closed beta version of Might and Magic: Heroes VI was launched by BlakHole Games about a week ago. There is a little more that we have known about the game since then. The exact release date in the USA is the 6th of September, while in the old lady continent we can take the game in our hands two days later, so on the 8th of September.
2011/07/04The first hungarian-developed game for Facebook, worth mentioning, was just released. The pack, including multiple minor skill and reflex game is nothing else but Alteroplay. The game was developed by Musketeer Games who has already published three videos of it. The first video shows you basically nothing other than the game logo. The second video is of promotional material, and the third rather shows the actual gameplay. You should at least watch the videos but if Facebook games are familiar to you, you will most probably like this one as well.
2011/06/29This is not that timely, but there could be people collecting these kinds of things. In the March issue of PC Guru, there was a four-page-long article published on Might and Magic: Heroes VI, developed by BlackHole Games. Back in these days of course we have not yet known about the several-month delay the release of the game is to suffer. In the same magazine we can find a two-page evaluation of King Arthur: The Druids, an expansion to the original King Arthur, developed by Neocore Games. It received really nice scores but it was stated thet the game is not the first expansion, and despite of the developers trying to include as many novelty in the game as possible, it does not bring the original pace.
2011/06/24Neocore Games, to get closer to its fanatics, have launched a developer's blog to share the most recent news about their games with the public. We get to know for example how the concept behind the King Arthur series was born, how the characters are created and formed according to needs, what happened at this year's E3 Expo, where Neocore Games was present as well, and the most recent information about the upcoming King Arthur: Fallen Champions.
2011/06/22Neocore Games is working on a new game. No, it's not King Arthur 2. The developers are working on King Arthur: Fallen Champions, which will fill the gap between the original King Arthur title and its sequel, King Arthur 2. If you cannot wait until the release of the second episode then this standalone expansion is waiting for you.
2011/06/20Who would have thought that the next piece of news will be about Might and Magic: Heroes VI? The beta version of the game from Blackhole Entertainment will be launched on the 28th of June.

2011/06/09On the 24th week of the year, Crysis: Maximum Edition, which also contains Crysis: Warhead, the game developed by Crytek Hungary, is on the 8th place of the sales list in Hungary in the PC category.
2011/06/08Who is buried early will live long, the saying goes. It turns out to be true for Digital Reality as well. Not long ago, the developers have told us that their newest development, Nadirim was taken over by another studio. It seemed as if the guys were left without a PC game. Although now I am happy to announce that there are 2 games under development under the roof of Digital Reality, that will also be published for the PC platform. One of them is going to be a puzzle, strategy hybrid, called Dead Block. The other one will be an arcade flight racing game under the title, SkyDrift. We can find plenty of information already about the games on their official websites.
2011/06/04On the 18th week of the year Crysis: Maximum Edition, the package containing Crysis: Warhead, the development of Crytek Hungary, as well has the 12th position in the multi-platform category, and the 8th position of the PC sales list in Hungary.

2011/05/25Fortix 2, the game from Nemesys Games has been published. You can buy and download it via the Steam system.
2011/05/24To return to the world of positive news let's take a look at the interview with Neocore Games about their upcoming title, King Arthur 2.
2011/05/23The next bad news in line is that the parent company is planning a grouped cut-back in workforce at Crytek Hungary. The step taken is worrying in itself but it's not yet all. The development of Codename: Kingdoms, the game ordered by Microsoft from the developers and so far developed at Crytek Hungary is now taken to the Frankfurt headquarters. The reasoning behind the decision was the structural reform in which the leadership is trying to make the mobile and tablet development the main profile of Crytek Hungary. This of course means that there will be no news coming from this studio to Gregorius' corner for a while now. As a farewell let's see what the guys have put into the development so far on the official website of the game!
2011/05/17Jowood is closing its gates. If the name does not ring a bell then I will remind you that Jowood was the publisher of S.W.I.N.E, the game of Stormregion. Since Stormregion has deceased long ago, Jowood has remained the only official source of support for the game. Until now. From this day on, we can only hope that S.W.I.N.E will leave its impression in the Internet for the future.
2011/05/10I can only tell you bad news. I will try to drop them on the website slowly, one after the other, so we don't burst out in rage right away. Let's start with the most important one. The Game Developers Forum will be postponed a little. A little until this Autumn. The event would have been held on this friday originally, but the organizers have decided to reschedule it to this fall due to numerous difficulties. Those who have already booked the forum in their calendars will have to look for alternative leasure time.
2011/05/06We can buy the development of Neocore Games, rightly praised by the professionals as well, and its expansions in a bundle now. The King Arthur Collection will contain the original King Arthur game, its two expansions, the King Arthur: The Saxons and the King Arthur: The Druids as well as the two downloadable contents, the Knights and Vassals and the Legendary Artifacts. We can expect the package to hit the shelves at the end of May. Of course a new release cannot come without a trailer video.
2011/05/03The release of GMignt and Magic: Heroes VIG was delayed by BlackHole Games. The new deadline is the 8th of September. We can not expect the game to be on the shelves before that.
2011/04/26A new video has been released from Nadirim. I would be happy to announce that thanks to Digital Reality we can check out how one of the newest frame of a comic strip is created by the hands of Richárd Vass and Péter Tikos, but the news is official now. The development of Nadirim was taken over by Twisted Tribe, and to finnish up the game, and most probably for future development, staff members of Digital Reality were taken over as well. The hungarian developments studios with one of the most past was first forced to turn towards mobile platform development and now one of their games were taken off of their hands, not to mention the loss of workforce. I hope this wasn't the last time I could write about Digital Reality as a PC game developer.
2011/04/22The program of this year's Game Developers Forum have been announced. I wrote earlier that the event is going to be held once again after two years of rest. After the date and location now we can finally check out what is going to happen. Among many others, the representatives of Crytek Hungary, Digital Reality or Invictus Games are going to pay a visit, while visitors are welcome to workshops presenting the secrets of game development, concentrating on the situation of game development in Hungary.
2011/04/21On the occasion of April's fools day Blackhole Entertainment have released a video of Might and Magic: Heroes VI. The teaser video dresses up some of the game's characters in funny animations. The first of April have already passed some time ago, but maybe it's even better to recall it's mood.
2011/04/20The Game and Educational Software Alliance have been founded this year. The goal of the alliance is to avert the obstacles of dealing virtual games and curriculum in Hungary. The organization is formed by several prominent people of hungarian or international firms having interest in Hungary. Let's hope that their functioning will make numerous hungarian development studios bloom.

2011/04/02It's been a while since we have last heard of Most Wanted Entertainment. But the guys did not disappear at all.

The Defenders of Ardania intends to close a hole on the market of casual games. It aims gamers familiar with the tower defense genre well-known form the Flash platform.
2011/04/01The launch of Nadirim, the development of Digital Reality is coming closer and closer as well. Hence videos are breaking free each month.

2011/03/31After one year of holiday Game Developers Forum is back to Budapest. The lecture-series mustering the masters of hungarian game development studios besides foreign presenters will be held in the Cinema City halls of Arena Plaza, expected on the 22nd of April.
2011/03/30After all the negative criticisms, finally, an article has risen from the depth of the Internet, which does not paint Perpetuum, the game of Avatar Creations, as the perfect MMO but at least shows a deeper shade of quality. And this required nothing more than a little more time and effort than what most entertainment products ask for. A more sophisticated game requires and deserves a more sophisticated evaluation. This was all presented be GameStar on the table.
2011/03/29The release of Might and Magic: Heroes VI, the development of BlackHole Games is coming closer and closer. The videos, images and details are published one after the other. Now we can take a closer look at the content of the collectors' edition of the game, due to a video that is also available on YouTube.
2011/03/23Last year, King Arthur was performing really frequently on Gregorius' corner in news about trying to reach the top of the hungarian sales lists. It was almost getting boring by the end. But it seems, it wasn't without result after all, since the game has reached the 19th position on the sales list of 2010 summarizing the sales of the whole year. This means that the game of Neocore Games was the 19th most successful game of last year in Hungary. Congratulations to the developers!

2011/03/16Here at Gregorius' corner I am trying to grasp all pieces of news concerning domestic PC-game developments. Running, under-development games, interesting pieces of information about good old forgotten developments, start-up, blooming and falling Hungarian development studios. But now let's talk about the developer and road towards development. On the columns of GameKapocs we can find an anonymous article from the pen of a Hungarian developer, who takes an overview of the highlights, ups and downs of his carreer. If you are preparing for this road, this article is a mandatory reading, although the article is anonymous so the source and the truth cannot be verified or supported.

2011/03/03I have the opportunity to announce a new hungarian development, Fortix 2. The game is developed by Nemesys. IT is quite old news, considering that I am almost a month late posting the news but it's better later than never. I will continue on this story tomorrow.
2011/03/02The website of Nemesys was just renewed. You can find many new pieces of information on the new interface. It's worth getting to know a little better this hungarian development studio getting more and more noted.

2011/02/14You can read an overview article about Nadirim, the new game of Digital Reality on the columns of PC Dome.
2011/02/13Digital Reality is taking the feedback from the Nadirim beta version seriously. They are willing to build in the ideas of beta testers into the game and correct all errors being reported to them. As a consequence they will return with a completely new version of the game.
2011/01/26A new overview of Lionheart: Kings' Crusade was published on PC Dome, which is satisfying in all the aspects. If there is anything you might have not known about the strategy-RPG hybrid of Neocore Games, you will find out in the article for sure.

In the first one you will be able to battle with the saracens and you can expect it to hit the virtual shelves on the 8th of February. Even bigger news is that the game will get a sequel and will be renamed once more as a consequence. From the second episode we can refer to the game simply as The Kings' Crusade. Most probably because we won't meat Richard Lionheart in it.
2011/01/20King Arthur: The Druids, the next dowloadable expansion to the original King Arthur, developed by Neocore Games, was released yesterday.
2011/01/19The background of the mysterious images on the Neocore Games website was revealed. The arrivel of King Arthur 2, the sequel to the original King Arthur, collecting the positive remarks of gamers and critics alike, was just announced recently. The developers are hoping for a welcome just as warm as of the original game. At home and abroad alike.
2011/01/13The website of Neocore Games was redesigned. Behind the new dress we can find the information concerning their new game and we can also find in a well structured system everything we might want to know about their previos titles. On top of everything upon entrance we bump into a couple of mysterious images from some secret project that we have already mentioned here on Gregorius' corner.
2011/01/12I am trying to adapt to all the name changes going on in the recent past. One, but not the only represenatative of such a change is Heroes of Might and Magic VI, whom we can look for under the title, Might and Magic: Heroes VI from now on. If I would like to summarize the events around the game in a nutshell, then I could say; one new side and dozens of new images from the game of Neocore Games. For illustration you can visit the article of PC Dome.
2011/01/10Last week, Crysis: Warhead, the standalone expansion of Crysis by Crytek Hungary have entered the top 10 list of Steam, as part of Crysis: Maximum Edition and have reached the second place.
2010/12/30Well, not exactly today, but the December issue of the GameStar magazine is out. And although there is no article inside about any real hungarian development, you can find a longer interview with Digic Pictures. What you must know about this studio is that they are responsible for the pre-rendered animations of numerous domestic and foreign developments including Armies of Exigo, Warhammer: Mark of Chaos and Warhammer: Mark of Chaos - Battle March, all developed by Blackhole Entertainment.
2010/12/29Registered GameStar users can now earn beta keys for Digital Reality's Nadirim. They have to do no more than visiting the appropriate page of GameStar and follow the instructions.
2010/12/22It was maybe more than two years ago when the hungarian PC game development market was so busy that things were happening on as many threads simultaneously as they do today. But let's see one of these threads. The Web4.hu portal has made a new video-interview with Avatar Creations, the developers of Perpetuum. The video reveals some interesting details of the game and the background of the development.
2010/12/20If there is still someone who has not yet taken a fancy to run one's head against the beta testing of Nadirim, I would report about what one can expect behind the form asking for a user name and a password. So far in the game, developed by Digital Reality, you can expect to choose a character to play with from 3 classes, and you can shepherd it through 2 worlds up to the 15th level improving on various skills and getting hold of numerous items. A mission list and mission management system is helping you to know your way around all the main, side and solo missions. Finally we can put our cherished hero to the test in turn-based battles, and in case of need a host of vendors are waiting for us to improve on our chances in the battles with their merchandise in exchange for a little of our money. With the rest of the players, we can keep in touch with and chat about our past trials with the aid of a friend list. In the meantime the mood is elevated by enchanting pieces of music and exciting sound effects, as we can expect from Digital Reality. Two more character classes and some new worlds are under development right now, and you can expect to fight with or against your fellow players in crowd fights, or to exchange your boring weapons with them like a good financial professional. As a beta tester you can expect all this to happen to you.
2010/12/17The second article about Nadirim that I would like to draw your attention to is a report by PC Dome, on the game of Digital Reality supported by images and videos. It is almost identitcal to the article of Játékok.hu, most probably it was written based on the same press release, but because of the visual backup you might want to read it through once.
2010/12/16The evaluations about Nadirim, the new game of Digital Reality, are slowly infiltrating to the web one after the other. Since beta testing have already been launched, these sources are also talking about the actual content of the game. First I would like to draw your attention to the article of Játékok.hu.
2010/12/15The excellent Dream Pinball 3D game of ASK Homework was released by Good Old Games as well. Now you can buy the game, featuring six pinball tables, including some soundtracks composed by Harold Faltermeyer, for 3 American dollars. This edition of Dream Pinball 3D does not contain any copy-protection system, or DRM, like the original boxed version did, and it is fully compatible with both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the Windows XP, Windows Vista and windows 7 operating systems. Unlike the original PC version of the game, Good Old Games offers the 6th table of Dream Pinball 3D not with the Two Worlds theme but with the redesigned theme of Amber Moon as in the console versions.
2010/12/13According to the findings and reasoning of Hardwired it seems most probable that Crytek Hungary, the Hungarian branch of the German Crytek empire, is currently working on a fantasy game. The development is going under the title of Codename: Kingdoms, but both the title and the development behind it is merely pure guess. No official sources back this information up. In spite of all this there is no harm in checking out the article of Hardwired, the graphics works of Ágnes Staudt and the really meaningless video trailer of the game.
2010/12/09You can already find on the shelves of 576 Kbyte, and soon you will be able to buy Lionheart: Kings' Crusade, the game of Neocore Games at CD Galaxis, Media Markt and Auchan as well. It looks like some people still think that it's worth publishing a game in a box. At least this way we can wrap it in something.
2010/12/08The beta testing of Nadirim, the web-browser based role-playing game of Digital Reality, colored with turn-based battles launches today.
2010/12/06Let's turn back a little in time and take a closer look at who were Clever's Games. We can thank the developers for Screamer 4x4, Cabela's 4x4 Off-Road Adventure and the Terminator 3: War of The Machines videogames. They have also started some projects that have never been finished, such as Steel of Haste or Paradox. Now we can read an article, from the pen of an insider, about the history that have mixed the threads so hardly it formed an inextricable knot on the road of Clever's Games.
2010/12/05As you could already read on Gregorius' corner, the launch of Nadirim, the new development of Digital Reality will take place on the 8th of December, so really soon. But the marketing machine was already released, a little earlier, according to which you can play a mini-game on the official website of the game. This mini-game can be considered as a prequel to Nadirim as it processes the events before the story of the game.
2010/12/02In the november issue of the printed PC Guru we can read a game test about Lionheart: Kings' Crusade in a usual two-page article. This game of Neocore Games proved worthy as well in the evaluation at the end of the article.
2010/12/01The beta version of Nadirim, the MMO role-playing game of Digital Reality will launch on the 8th of December. If you would like to try the beta phase of the game, you could register yourself as a beta tester.
2010/11/30I would like to draw your attention to a really promising creation. Akarnokd, most probably a true Imperium Galactica fanatic is working on nothing less, but the open-source implementation of the legendary, original Imperium Galactica from Digital Reality on the Java platform. The development is advancing strongly, and if you would like to feel again the atmosphere of Imperium Galactica established by the videos, cutscenes and animations at the beginning of the game, do not hesitate to download the program!
2010/11/29Still in the printed October issue of PC Guru you can read a once again two-page game test of King Arthur: The Saxons, which is a standalone expansion to the original King Arthur title from Neocore Games. The game has reached a really high score according to the test. For further details you should check out the october issue of PC Guru.
2010/11/28In the printed October issue of PC Guru you can read a two-page presentation of Heroes of Might and Magic VI, the newest development of Blackhole Entertainment, who are also responsible for Armies of Exigo and Warhammer: Mark of Chaos, in an interview with István Zsuffa, the art director of the team. Among other things we can find out that according to official cases, they can keep to the orogonal deadline of next March.
2010/11/26This year's Experience Show will be held on the 27th of November, Saturday, so tomorrow. The event is a demo-scene show, where the best demo creators will compete with each other. Numerous hungarian teams will attend, who's memebers are domestic developers, produce entertainment value and use the PC platform. So everything is in place to write a couple of sentences about the event on Gregorius' corner as well. Some developers of the demo scenes continue on in the game industry, such as BoyC, a memebr of the Conspiracy team, who is also a part of Avatar Creations, responsible for Perpetuum. Even the winners of the Scene.hu Awards will be announced, and the awards will be presented on the Experience Show. Those who like digital art should visit the show by all means.
2010/11/25GPerpetuum, the sci-fi, mecha, MMO role-playing game of Avatar Creations is opening its doors to the public today. I am pretty sure that there are many people who have been waiting for this day as a special holiday. But if you don't know what Perpetuum is all about, still be sure to check out the website of the development since you could find a favorite behind it.
2010/11/24This year's Computer Art Forum was a big success. According to the findings of PC Dome, the number of visitors were battling with the physical barrier. If nothing more, this we can find out from the article of PC Dome. Maybe I could add that probably the author of the article got a copy of the program flyer published beforehand as well.
2010/11/23On the 45th week of the year, Neocore Games's King Arthur is standing on the 23th position of the hungarian sales lists in the multiplatform category.
2010/11/22According to newest rumours, King Arthur: The Druids, the next standalone expansion to the original King Arthur video game of Neocore Games could be in the shops by this year. The game will feature heavy weight magic this time due to the attack of the druids along with their leader, King Ryon.
2010/11/20I am very happy to have the chance to look back at an old favorite of mine for at least a couple of minutes, Screamer 4x4, the off-road simulation of Clever's Games. The game was published back in 2001 by Virgin Interactive Entertainment, using the well-known brand of the Screamer series, although other than the name, the game has nothing to do with its predecessors, not in content, not in looks. We can take a closer look to the past of this game thanks to an article just published on Szimulátorgia.
2010/11/17We can still only speak of Neocore Games's King Arthur on the 44th week of the year, as the only game created by a domestic development team, which stays in the visible spectrum of the hungarian sales lists. The game, processing the legend of king Arthur, is not even in the upper house but on the 27th position.
2010/11/16GameStar has prepared for this year's Budapest Game Show a little more seriously. They had arrived with a cast equiped with camera and made numerous recordings and interviews, trying to bring the feeling of the event onto the screen of the viewers. You can find the recordings of the first day here, and of the second day here.
2010/11/15Due to the imminent launch of Perpetuum, the developers, Avatar Creations has decided to release a new video of the game. If one would not be sure what lies beneath the download section or if it's worth registering on the website of the game for the online mayhem, should be sure at least to check out this new video to get the final push for the first click.
2010/11/13The evaluations and articles about this year's Budapest Game Show are arriving one following the other. Thanks to PC Dome we can browse through a whole gallery of images taken on the event. It is good to see that with the aid of a little of western funds we managed to domesticate the lowest mental point of all similar exhibitions, the high school event Aprils, who attract and generate the visitors of similar mental requirements. I guess there was nothing more worth to perpetuate on the exhibition.
2010/11/12This year's Budapest Game Show has ended. According to some, guests could leave with mixed feelings. The event attracted less visitors than expected. The program looked more like an XBox360 expo rather than a game show. And also many think that the weekday date was not in favor of the exhibition either. Organizers do not yet complain on the other hand. I'm sure that some of us are waiting for the official evaluation of the game show.
2010/11/11The robotic MMO-RPG world of Perpetuum, the development of Avatar Creations will launch on the 25th of November. The end of the beta-testing is soon going to arrive, and from that on, we can enjoy the game in its full spectacle.
2010/11/10It can hardly be called a miracle that everyone is burning in Neocore Games fever. I think all domestic game developers could be jealous of their success. Echelon has published an interview with the developers responsible for King Arthur, Lionheart: Kings' Crusade and Crusaders: Thy Kingdom Come.
2010/11/09King Arthur is in concrete. The game, developed by Neocore Games, on the hungarian sales lists is invariably on the 15th place in the multiplatform list, and 13th place considering PC sales of the 42nd week.
2010/11/07Due to the server shutdown of last week I did not have the chance to draw your attention repeatedly to Computer Art Forum, held on last Friday, where among others, famous, hungarian developers shared their views about the artistic aspect of game developing. If you did not have to chance to attend, don't worry, because on the 10th and 11th of November, next Wednesday and Thursday, the Budapest Game Show is waiting for all curious.
2010/11/06It is still only King Arthur who can be found on the top part of the hungarian sales lists from among all the games developed by Neocore Games. King Arthur holds its position on the 15th place in the multiplatform list, and 13th place considering PC sales.
2010/10/25The next development of Neocore Games is on its way on the conveyor belt. the noted, hungarian PC game development company has signed a long-term agreement with its current publisher, Paradox Interactive. According to this, the company has a vast financial backup for the upcoming years, and probably the second expansion of King Arthur, King Arthur: The Druids, following the previous expansion, King Arthur: The Saxons, could not be in better hands.
2010/10/20There is a new event on the horizont in Hungary. The Computer Art Forum of this year will be held on the 5th of November in the Magyar Telekom headquarters. The attendance is free, all you need to do is register yourself as a visitor. Participation is worth taking these steps, as lectures will include presentation of the colleagues of Digital Reality speaking of Nadirim, the developers of Invictus leading us into the secrets of iPhone programming and the masters of Nemesys telling us a little bit about Fortix. On top of these, Mesharray Digital Media School will represent the citadel of the art vein of hungarian game development in an own auditorium.
2010/10/19King Arthur is still staying in Hungary, on the 40th week of the year. The development of Neocore Games is placed 14th on the multiplatform list, and 12th in the PC category.
2010/10/17Connected to the release of Lionheart: Kings' Crusade, the developers, Neocore Games, have published a release-video of the game. You can find the video on GameStar.
2010/10/16And it is still only King Arthur who can be found on the hungarian sales lists in spite of all the new hungarian developments. The game of Neocore Games is in the 16th position of the multiplatform list on the 39th week of the year.
2010/10/15The open beta of the MMO sci-fi RPG game, Perpetuum, will start next Monday, so on the 18th of October. Avatar Creations would like to refine the game according to the feedback of the most users possible this way, and to test the engine under heavy load.
2010/10/13On the 38th week of the year, King Arthur has fallen to the 10th place on the sales lists of Hungary in the PC category. On the multi-platform list the game of Neocore Games have even droped from the visible spectrum.
2010/10/12Zsilvölgyi Csaba, the former member of Appaloose Interactive and a colleague of has deceased. Among many other things he was strengthening Stormregion during the development of Codename: Panzers - Phase Two, GRush of BerlinG, Rush for Berlin: Rush for The Bomb and Codename Panzers 2: Cold War. I would like to mediate the sincere condolences of the visitors of Gregorius' corner and myself to his colleagues, friends and family!
2010/10/11A longer interview has arrived with Avatar Creations, who are responsible for the game titled Perpetuum. This is a robot, sci-fi, shooter, MMO in a nutshell, but the video-interview can explain this a lot better. For english subtitles beg the uploader or me.
2010/10/09The Budapest Game Show will be held on the 10th and 11th of November this year for the fourth time. The location will be new, in the Jövő Háza (House of Future) in the Millenáris, but the feeling will be the old, fantastic. You can buy tickets in the stores of 576Kbyte where you can also get something for this amount beside the ticket.
2010/10/08King Arthur has preserved its position on the sales lists of Hungary in the PC category, and so still can be the owner of the 5th place. In the multiplatform list, the game of Neocore Games could even improve and by stepping a position forward placed 7th.
2010/10/08Lionheart: Kings' Crusade, the new development of Neocore Games was released. Let's hope that the game will succeed in a similar manner that of King Arthur. Hopefully it will be recognized not only in Hungary.
2010/10/06Within a short week, on the 12th of October, the beta test of GNadirigG, the new massive multiplayer online role-playing game of Digital Reality, will be launched. The beta testing is closely held, but you can sign up for the noble quest here. The developers will fine-tune the game according to feedback.
2010/10/04King Arthur is still staying in Hungary, on the 36th week of the year. The development of Neocore Games is placed 8th on the multiplatform list, and 5th in the PC category.
2010/09/29After the first news spreading like fire on the web about the death of Good Old Games, it turns out, it was all an advertisement. Good Old GamesGood Old Games is happy, healthy and all new. the reason why I mention it is that you can find Haegemonia: Legions of Iron, GHagemonia: The Solon HeritageG from Digital Reality and 1nsane from Invictus on the website.
2010/09/28PC Dome has produced a preview article, colored with images about Lionheart: King's Crusade, the new development of Neocore Games. The official website of the game was launched as well. An interesting circumstance is that the game was renamed. So far it was going under the title, Lionheart: King's Crusade. On the official website though, we can see it as Lionheart: Kings' Crusade. Not much of a change, rather unfortunate that it was mispelled on many news pages, including Gregorius' corner.
2010/09/18According to the newest results of the hungarian sales lists, King Arthur by Neocore Games have jumped back to the 6th position in the PC category. One thing is for sure. The game has been besieging the lists for many, long months now. This many people cannot be wrong for this long.
2010/09/17Lionheart: King's Crusade, the under development game of Neocore Games has recieved a release date. We can expect to meet the game on the shelves on the 8th of October. In the meantime you can find some on the website of PC Dome.
2010/09/13On the 35th week of the year, King Arthur, the development of Neocore Games can only be found in the PC category of the hungarian sales lists, and even there it dropped to the 11th position.
2010/09/09Nemesys, as maybe a less known but still just as worty representative of the hungarian PC-game developers was out on GamesCom. And if they were out there, they put together a nice, little video trailer about their newest development, Ignite. The video is available in HD resolution as well on YouTube. It looks to be a promising scud. I can only recommend it to everyone who likes racing of any kind.
2010/09/04King Arthur, developed by Neocore Games, have finished in the 7th place in the PC category, and in the 8th place in the multiplatform category of the hungarian sales lists on the 34th week of the year.

2010/08/27The new website of Digic Pictures was born. In the past month only a message was greeting the visitors, saying that the website will be redesigned soon. The time has come to look around inside. Although Digic Pictures does not have a hungarian development on its own, but has taken a minor or a significant role in the making of the resources for numerous foreign games.
2010/08/26We can read a larger article presenting the expansion made to King Arthur thanks to PC Dome. You can read the groundedly positive overview of King Arthur: The Saxons, developed by Neocore Games over here.
2010/08/24A new video was released from Lionheart: King's Crusade, the newest development of Neocore Games. The video, which concentrates on the battles of the game, was produced for this year's GamesCom. The game music under it sounds really pleasant. Hopefully the whole soundtrack will be as good as this one.
2010/08/24King Arthur has kept the 8th position on the 32nd week of the year, that he has just conquered last week on the sales lists of Hungary in the multiplatform category. Will the feet of Lionheart: King's Crusade, the next development of Neocore Games fit the boots of the predecessor?
2010/08/23After its down point, King Arthur, the game of Neocore Games, have returned to the 8th position of the sales lists of Hungary in the PC category. And it reached this position on the 31st week of the year.
2010/08/19The august issue of Gamestar has been released. Along many other candies you can find inside a game presentation of King Arthur: The Saxons, the development of Neocore Games. Probably this is the reason why we could not find a larger article about the expansion to the original King Arthur on the on-line version of the magazine.
2010/08/18Ubisoft is confirming on the news of yesterday. Heroes of Might and Magic VI, or the way they would like to call it, Might and Magic: Heroes 6, is on the way. Let's see if the publisher manages to convert the fanatics to use the new title! Two things are for sure though. The development is still in the hands of Black Hole Entertainment, and the HD quality of the video trailer has arrived from official sources.
2010/08/17I'm writing to you on a joyous occasion. Curtain falls from another under-development game, kept as a secret so far, according to GameStar. It turns out that hungarian Black Hole Entertainment is responsible for Heroes of Might and Magic VI, the upcoming piece of the Heroes of Might & Magic series. Even the previous title, Heroes of Might & Magic V had a hungarian aspect, since the computer generated movies were made by Digic Pictures. Heroes of Might and Magic VI though will be an all domestic product. You can find the so-far-published images here, and the video trailer here. The fanatics of the series are expecting the game with reservation since according to foreign voices, previous titles of the developers, Armies of Exigo and Warhammer: Mark of Chaos did not meet the standards.
2010/08/13As a big surprise, the sales of King Arthur, the development of Neocore Games have dropped significantly in the 30th week of the year. Therefor the game descended to the 15th position of the sales lists of Hungary in the multiplatform category.
2010/08/11PC Dome has written an article, colored by some images about Nadirim, developed by Digital Reality. They summarize the background story of the game, they mention a few words about the gameplay, and reveal the launch of the beta testing at the end of August.
2010/08/09On the 28th week of the year King Arthur has placed 3rd on both the multiplatform and PC category of the sales lists in Hungary. The game of Neocore Games have been a returning visitor to the top of the sales lists for a while now, and the release of the expansion, King Arthur: The Saxons will probably improve this.
2010/08/08After the publishing of the game, a trailer video was released about King Arthur: The Saxons. If you are interested in how much more do you get from the expansion than the original King Arthur game, you can watch the video on GameTrailers.
2010/07/20So far it seems that Nadirim will be the last development of Digital Reality that we can play on on the PC. And it will not be a classical PC game itself but a role-playing adventure placed in the fantasy world inside a web-browser. You can sign up for the beta on the website of the game. From what is released to the public we can draw the consequence that the game will feature really nice graphics for a browser-based game. Worth a try for the role-playing fanatics.
2010/07/19Dicovery Channel has made a documentary on the history of the video game industry. Although only for a couple of seconds of edit pictures, Battlestations: Midway, the game of former Mithis Games had earned its spot as well, where the film argues about the strong link between the video game industry and the army.
2010/07/13King Arthur: The Saxons, the official expansion to the original King Arthur title has arrived. The sequel to the successful game by Neocore Games was released via the Steam system for download.
2010/07/12King Arthur has returned in the 26th week of the year. The game of Neocore Games have fought its way back up to the 18th position on the sales lists of Hungary in the PC category.
2010/07/02King Arthur is getting an expansion that will lead gamers into the diplomatic world of the Saxons. Neocore Games have begun developing two expansions for the original game, of which the first one, the King Arthur: The Saxons is now soon to be completed. The arrival of the expansion is to be expected on 8th of July.
2010/06/30After his return, King Arthur is going down again. The game of Neocore Games has declined to the 18th position on the games sales list of Hungary. Of course there is still no other domestic development this high so we can only compare the result to itself.
2010/06/29I must correct myself. PC Dome, as a pioneer, has successfully made the 4th episode of the par started a tight year ago, written with hungarian development studios. Other members of hungarian professional press have failed to launch a series of articles like this with up to 4 pieces. This time the writing is circling around the DRM theme with the aid of Crytek Hungary, PrivateMoon Studios, Nemesys and Digital Reality.
2010/06/28King Arthur has once again battled its way to the sales lists of Hungary. On the 23rd week of the year, the game of Neocore Games has reached the 17th position.
2010/06/25Let's leave King Arthur alone for a moment and rather check out Lionheart: King's Crusade the newest, current development of Neocore Games. A new video trailer was released lately that was published in accordance with the E3. the background music lends a brave mood to the game for the video.
2010/06/23I'm afraid that I will not have the chance for quiet a time now to share some news about Digital Reality on Gregorius' corner. According to their new website, that the guys have just launched, they have taken a detour to mobile game development and have left the PC stream. Other Hungarian game development studios were obliged to do so. We can only hope that an investor will guide them back to the PC way.
2010/06/22King Arthur has performed really well in the last 3 weeks keeping itself in the top 10 games of the sales lists of Hungary, in the PC category even reaching the top 5. According to latest numbers though, the development of Neocore Games was droped from even the visible domain of the lists now. The mighty march of King Arthur my have come to an end.
2010/06/20King Arthur stands erect on the 13th position of the hungarian, full-priced games sales list on the 19th week of the year. I cannot remember since when is the game of Neocore Games present on the lists.
2010/06/19As a full game attachment to the June issue of GameStar magazine the readers can take hold of an original copy of King Arthur, the development of Neocore Games.
2010/06/05We can find new images of King Arthur, the development of Neocore Games in the gallery of GameKapocs.
2010/06/04Some time ago there was a legendary hungarian game development studio who produced numerous games for different console platforms, but mainly for Sega during the 1980s and 90s. The reason why I mention Appaloosa Interactive here, in the PC world is that probably their most famous and successful game, Ecco The Dolphin is now available for PC via the Steam system.
2010/06/03It is time to take a glance at Lionheart: King's Crusade, the newest development of Neocore Games. According to newest pieces of information, the release of the game is expected on the 17th of September, this year.
2010/06/02The rise and fall of King Arthur. the development of Neocore Games has only reached the 9th position even in the PC category of the sales lists of Hungary on the 19th week of the year. The achievement of the game could be due to the fact that hungarian market preferred the domestic product. Other, foreign startegy games did not perform as well and for so long in the near past. Also in the Anglo-Saxon region the game did not perform nearly as good as this, although due to its theme it could be considered a favourite in the area.
2010/06/01There were some moments of the year when King Arthur has fought its way up to the silver second position of the sales lists of Hungary. With this, the development of Neocore Games has been setting up new records of hungarian developments, one after the other. No game stood as high as it since the list is recorded.

As opposed to 576 Media, these guys are responsible for Road to Fame and Army Racer. They were the one who made Pranksters 3D for GlassFish Games as well. They have also produced Heat Wave in the meantime, car racing simulator. Currently they are working on two projects. One is Ignite, yet another car racing game, and the other is Fortix, the remake of Qix, an old PC game from the 80s.
2010/05/17PC Dome has reached the present record of producing the third episode of the article series introducing the hungarian game development studios.

2010/05/13I would like to turn back to a not that new game for one piece of news. The Battlestar Galactica mod for Nexus: The Jupiter Incident, the game developed by former Mithis Games, has reached a spectacular state. You can find information, images and videos about the mod on this website.

2010/03/22PC Dome has published a longer article about King Arthur. It's interesting to see that, although the game has become popular, the domestic professional press is not rushing to write a healthy evaluation about the development of Neocore Games. Among the greatest domestic magazins this is the second evaluation article.
2010/03/20It looks like King Arthur is unstoppable. The game of Neocore Games, probably due to the positive echo in the professional press, has reached the 6th position on the multiplatform sales lists of Hungary, while it stood up onto the 3rd position of the podium in the PC category.
2010/03/18The second part of the questionnaire sent out to hungarian development teams have arrived. the project was started by PC Dome earlier this year.

On the multiplatform list it reached the 7th position.

2010/02/24Now the game of Neocore Games is on every corner. GameStar has published a gigantic evaluation of King Arthur. It might be worth reading for those who would like to know everything about the game before deciding upon buying it.
2010/02/23King Arthur is marching towards fame inevitably. Two new expansions are on the way for the game of Neocore Games. One for the cycle of Wales and one for Saxon.

2010/02/21King Arthur, the development of Neocore Games have reached the 9th position on the sales list of Hungary this week. This could be a sign of the doemstic market honoring the hungarian developments, but could easily mean as well that a game reaching world standards will be appreciated at home too.
2010/02/20The website of Mesharray Digital Media School has been redesigned.
2010/02/18In every layoff there comes the moment, that noted domestic news portals take a look at hungarian game developers, and try to launch something in hope of a charity series that does not live for a month or reach the fourth episode. Now PC Dome has tried to put together something that would map the present of domestic game development teams. The article talks about Private Moon Studios, Invictus, and Crytek Hungary. The editors are complaining about the lack of answers sent back by the teams, but I know about more studios that have never even recieved such questionnaire.
2010/02/16King Arthur, the new game of Neocore Games is on the noble 12th position on the game sales list of Hungary in the PC category.

2010/01/18The most successful hungarian development of 2009 was Crysis: Warhead according to the sum of hungarian sales lists throughout the year. But the development of Crytek Hungary still became only 48th compared to international produucts. The second best was Codename: Panzers - Cold War, the game of InnoGlow and former Stormregion, which became 65th all together on the list. Of course this list means very little in itself because the performance of a game depends greatly on the season it was published in, since a game being released in december for example has little chance climbing up on the sales lists till the end of the year.
2010/01/10Játékok.hu has also released an article on the impression of King Arthur. The evaluation is available on this link.
2010/01/07GameKapocs has shared its opinion on King Arthur, the new game of NeoCore Games. The result of the big test was published in a longer article.

2009/12/21The demo version of King Arthur has arrived. The development of Neocore Games can be downloaded for example from the server of PC Dome. It is worth trying out the game, promising spectacular battles and large areas of view, before buying to see how it performs on our machines.

2009/12/18You can read a short article on GameStar about Lionheart: King's Crusade, the freshly announced game of .
2009/12/17The first video was already released from Lionheart: King's Crusade, the newly announced game of Neocore Games. It seems as if the engine was unchanged. Let's hope it is not final, and we won't just get a redrawn King Arthur into our hands. Neocore Games has raised the standards well above this in our hearts.
2009/12/15In the last couple of days I had little time refreshing the news. This does not mean that there has not happened anything. On the contrary. Neocore Games for example has released the third patch for King Arthur. The patch, that downloads automaticaly via the Steam System, adds numerous extra features to the game.
2009/12/10It seems as if Neocore Games has stepped into the position of the most productive development studio of Hungary in these days. Their last development, King Arthur, had not even moved to their finished projects on the developer's website, they have already unveiled their newest development, Lionheart: King's Crusade, with Paradox Interactive. The guys and girls would like to stick to the words that already proved in the title of their games. In the new game we will have to opportunity to control Lionheart Richard of course among others as the title suggests.
2009/12/09The first patch of version 1.02 was released for King Arthur.

2009/12/07Who would have thought that Imperium Galactica 2, the game of Digital Reality, who is battling for surviving, was 10 years old last week? The fanatics of the game has also organized an online multiplayer game as a sign of their respect.
2009/12/04Although it is not fix, but seems more and more sure that Crytek could move its game development center to Hungary, after Germany released a law that permits the development of aggressive games in the country. If it had turned out, I needed to write here more often as well.
2009/11/27Last week, after a long silence, a hungarian development, namely Codename: Panzers - Cold War, the last game of InnoGlow and former Stormregion, has returned to the visible range of hungarian sales toplist. It managed to reach the 27th place.

If you would like to know more about the development of Neocore Games before you buy it, it is the thing to read.

2009/11/09The 12th Annual Independent Games Festival, where small, garage projects can compete with each other internationally, will be held next year.

2009/10/31Different sources of informations call them on different names. Maybe even I have called them on different names but this does not change a thing.

2009/10/21The second video trailer was released by Avatar Creations that shows the playing of Perpetuum Online. If you were not familiar with the name, Avatar Creations, don't worry, I only heard the team might be called by this name just now. It is worth checking the website of the beta test as well, because you can find some interesting pieces of information there. You can also find the new images on the website of the game.
2009/10/14During the weekend the Computer Art Forum was held. As far as hungarian game developers are concerned, all we were handed with by the GameStar talk room is the fact, that Perpetuum Online is still on the road towards completion. Thanks to Crytek we were shown the presentation pipeline of the CryEngine. Invictus Games is still existing and working, only more silently than before.
2009/10/10The third episode of the developer's diary was released by Neocore Games. The video presents the magical world of King Arthur to the viewers.

2009/10/02Once again we have a hungarian development on the sales top list of PC games in Hungary. But again we have an old returner. It is Codename: Panzers - Cold War, the development of InnoGlow and former Stormregion that grasped the 17th place on the full price games list.
2009/10/01The Computer Art Forum will be held next friday, so on the 9th of October. The host of the event will be the ten-year-old teacher, Mesharray Digital Media School.

Attendance is free but conditioned to registration.
2009/09/29Those readers who took hold of a september issue of GameStar can find a two-page interview with one of the crew members of Neocore Games. The development studio is beginning to become the only source of news of the hungarian development teams. From the interview you can find out that Neocore Games is not planning to step on the route of imminent disappearance after high expectations as their fellow studios did.
2009/09/25It is worth checking out the newest episode of the Neocore Games development diary. From the video you can find out who are the heroes of the game, who are the knights of the round table. The biggest surprise though is Orsolya Tóth herself. The strikingly beautiful narrator of the video tells us about the world of King Arthur with surprisingly ornate English.
2009/09/23There is a multipage article about King Arthur in the september issue of GameStar. It would be hard to find any words in the PC game media about the development of Neocore Games, though the game has above average international expectations. King Arthur already has a smaller fanatic base. The unordinary choice of theme brings the unconditional symphaty of people being interested in the given theme.
2009/09/14Even if it does not link directly to hungarian game developers I will mention it now as well as I did before. The Function 2009 party will be held this year between the 18th and 20th of August and like last year there is a game category for the art creations.
2009/09/09New images were published of the game called Perpetuum Online, which is a strong proof of the continuing development. Meanwhile the beta testing was launched as well with mixed echo. According to first feedback the game is filled with childish glitches. This is probably due to the pioneer characteristics of the project and the developers will hopefully correct the issues in a fraction of time.
2009/09/07An article was published about Battlestations: Pacific, developed by former Eidos Hungary. The evaluation of PC Dome is really positive, and paints a complimentary image of the game from every angle. Hence our sorrow is doublefold upon noticing the closure of the development studio by its new owner, Square Enix.
2009/09/01Crysis Wars, the multiplayer mode of Crysis: Warhead, the development of Crytek Hungary will be available for free on this week. Players have been able to hunt since 28th of August. For further details visit the MyCrysis website.
2009/08/29After a long absence there is once again a hungarian development in the visible region of the sales lists of hungarian PC games. The awaited return was not commited by a new development but Crysis: Warhead by Crytek Hungary.
2009/08/21The website of Digital Reality has been renewed. There is only a mysterious clock on it, of course ticking backward. It does not say though if the countdown goes until the presentation of their next development, the completion of the new design, or the complete depletion of their bank account. All other pieces of information were removed. It might be worth checking out the job offers though.
2009/08/19Crysis Wars, the multiplayer mode of Crysis: Warhead, the development of Crytek Hungary will be available for free once again. Players will be able to start hunting on 28th of August. For further details visit the MyCrysis website.
2009/08/18Field Ops, one of the developments of Digital Reality might be left witout a publisher. There is a publisher rather, but the willing to publish the game is gone. The engine is outdated and The Games Company is unwilling to take the chance with it. This could easily put the future of Digital Reality up to fate. Although we do not need to fear by all means. In the meantime Digital Reality has worked in some foreign developments and birds say they have been working on a new game as well. Fingers crossed!
2009/08/13Let us not forget about Perpetuum-Online either in the meantime. The hungarian developed robo-MMORPG is getting more beautiful nice and slow. This is what the new video shows us. It was published on the blog of the developers. There is another video waiting for us on the blog that was recorded on SceneCon 2009 and plays the presentation held at the event.
2009/08/11When an on-line organ runs down a game in a way that only 5 games suffer from in a year, and then offers it as a prize in a quiz, it could be a really awkward moment. This is exactly what happened in the case of Játékok.hu and Codename: Panzers - Cold War, the game of InnoGlow and former Stormregion. The prizes were offered by CD Projekt.
2009/08/10A developer video was published of King Arthur. The video, on which Zoltán Varga, a crew member of Neocore Games is talking about the controls and interface of the game, can be found on the official website of King Arthur even in HD quality. Those, who like the game, might want to keep an eye on the website since more videos are to be expected during this month.
2009/08/09Játékok.hu thinks too that the ruckus around Stormregion and InnoGlow has sealed the fate of Codename: Panzers: Cold War. According to their published article there were many aspects of the game to still undergo some fine tuning.
2009/08/08One sign of the fall of Hungarian game development is the closure of Eidos Hungary. The subsidiary of the bankrupt Eidos chain was bought by Square Enix, who, as a next step, has closed the brigade responsible for the Battlestations frenchise. May rest in peace!
2009/08/06The german government is heading the best way towards supporting the hungarian PC game development industry, which is living its weaker days nowadays according to some. It is true that more and more hungarian development companies are forced to close or shift their workforce towards mobile software development. Germany is though to take a step that means the total annihilation of the development and marketing of aggressive games inside its borders. Hence numerous german game development studios will have to leave the country. Such a high-ranked studio is Crytek that is thinking about leaving Germany all right. What leaves us with great expectations is that Crytek is already running a subsidiary in Hungary, namely Crytek Hungary. It would be an expected step of Crytek to push some of its liberating workforce to Hungary.
2009/08/05Neocore Games showed a minor sign of life. A couple of background images were presented from their upcoming title, King Arthur. The images look really nice and we are waiting for the game behind them. You can also read a long article about the game in the July issue of PC Guru.

GameStar has made a test regarding Codename: Panzers - Cold War, the development of InnoGlow and former Stormregion. The results were mixed but the overview is rather depressing. It is still worth reading the article.
2009/07/03GameStar has published their video interviews shot with Mesharray Digital Media School on Game Developers Forum, but by today morning they were all removed and all visitors are greeted with a nice 404 error.
2009/07/03We will get unique paint jobs, six new units and four new maps in two downloadable contents, the Mustang pack and the Carrier Battle map pack from Eidos Hungary for Battlestations: Pacific. The packs will be available for both the X360 and the PC platfrom in this month.
2009/06/29Crysis: Warhead, the development of Crytek Hungary places 29th on the hungarian multi-platform list of pc games sales.
2009/06/23According to GameStar some signs imply that Crytek Hungary might be working on a PC title, or on a multiplatform game including the PC platform. This seems to be supported by some information telling that the crew has hired a foreign, well-known map designer recently.

2009/05/19In Great Britain, Battlestations: Pacific has imploded into the 10th place on the multi-platform games sales list, which is considered a really nice start.

And as you turn the page you can find a three-page-long, full depth writing about Battlestations: Pacific. The article is completed by a two-page-long interview published towards the final pages with János Gáspár, senior designer of Eidos Hungary. In the toplists suggesting games to players we can find Crysis: Warhead on the 5th place in the FPS category. The development of Crytek Hungary proves to stand time. In the article remembering of its own jubilee, the ten-year-old GameStar commemorates Imperium Galactica 2 as well, as the "former national treasure". Fly in the ointment is that above the subtitle you can find a an image not from the creation of Digital Reality, but from Nexus: The Jupiter Incident of former Mithis Games. The game earlier was also named Galaxy Andromeda and Imperium Galactica 3 under the hands of late Philos Laboratories.
2009/05/08Crysis: Warhead, the development of Crytek Hungary fought its way up to the 9th place on the multiplatform sales list of Hungary. Codename: Panzers - Cold War, the game of InnoGlow and the former Stormregion placed 21st on the same list.

And those who were present can now relive their memories.
2009/05/04GameStar has put together a larger and informationful preview article about Battlestations: Pacific, the game of Eidos Hungary probably feeling the imminent release of the game.
2009/05/02We can see some really nice new pictures in the gallery of GameKapocs as the media dumping of Eidos Hungary continues about Battlestations: Pacific.
2009/05/02A new video as well was released from Battlestations: Pacific at the end of last month. In the video we can see some footage from the Battle of Leyte Gulf where allied aircrafts strike on the japanese fleet like mosquitos.
2009/04/26At the end of this month, so really soon the demo version of Battlestations: Pacific will be released in which we can take control of the fleet of Eidos Hungary for the first time.
2009/04/24I would like to draw your attention to two free lectures to be held on Games Developers Forum 2009, which were unknown up to now. It turns out that both Microsoft Games Studios and Autodesk will hold a lecture each on the event.
2009/04/23Fresh new images were released from Battlestations: Pacific again. As the release approaches, new and new materials are being uploaded to the world-wide web. The new images can be found this time in the gallery of GameKapocs.
2009/04/20Fresh images were received from Battlestations: Pacific. Unfortunately Eidos Hungary is still not sending these stuffs to me so you can take a look at the pictures in the gallery of GameStar. But if everyone brings a thousand other visitors a day we will solve this issue. :)
2009/04/20The program of Games Developers Forum 2009 has been finalized. You can read the details about the workshops and the lectures in the main hall on the official website of the event.
2009/04/20On the 15th week of the year Crysis: Warhead stands on the 26th position of the sales list of Hungary in the PC game category. The development of Crytek Hungary is the 36th on the multiplatform list.
2009/04/17What else could we start the day with than another video about Battlestations: Pacific. On the pages of Gametrailers we can find a video presenting the multiplayer modes of the game of Eidos Hungary.
2009/04/17Well, if we still have the momentum, Eidos Hungary has published a new video about Battlestations: Pacific after the exhausting video dumping of the game from yesterday. The new video is a professional advertisement trailer as well, entitled Change History.
2009/04/16A new video was released from Battlestations: Pacific on the website of Gametrailers. On the video you can see the external designer of Eidos Hungary speaking about the game and in the meantime your screen will be ruled by action-packed scenes.
2009/04/16Let us see the next video about Battlestations: Pacific! If you would like to taste the atmosphere of the game of Eidos Hungary then this video is for you. The music, the images and the orotund PR titles are all trying by releasing their magical powers to convince the players to buy.
2009/04/16Today is all about Battlestations: Pacific. I would like to draw your attention to a third video as well. In the Siege video of Gametrailers you can live through the mood of the rapid game-play.
2009/04/15Slowly the list of auditors of the Games Developers Forum of this year are revealed. Who are those who will be on the podium of Arena Plaza for sure already? You can find names among the auditors like Crytek ofcourse, or Digital Reality, Neocore Games and Mesharray Digital Media School. From abroad come Techland from Poland and 1c from the Checz Republic. And on the workshops you will find the specialists of Eidos Hungary, Invictus and BlackHole Games. I myself am most curious about the lecture of Digital Reality because we have not heard of for over a year, and they refused to answer to any of my e-mails of interest.
2009/04/14Crysis: Warhead is keeping its shape. The development of Crytek Hungary stands on the 18th place of the multi-platform sales list of Hungary.
2009/04/14Hardwired has also published an article, colored by numerous images, about Perpetuum-Online, the first game of Microsystem Gaming Solutions. The article overviews the infromation that can be found on the website of the game.
2009/04/13Thanks to GameStar you might be able to buy your tickets for Games Developers Forum of this year cheaper. All you need to do is send a registration SMS. If it is not yet too late you can read further details here.
2009/04/10From 9th of April until 11th of April you can try Crysis: Wars, the multiplayer mode of Crysis: Warhead for free. All you need to do is to download the client program from MyCrysis.
2009/04/09I recieved the following message from ImperitumGalactica2.hu. "On 11st of April, this Saturday, at 17:00 a spring welcome Imperium Galactica 2 match will start. Before easter everyone is available for a game. If not, you are a rabbit."
2009/04/09I almost started with saying that major Hungarian media is beginning to find Perpetuum-Online, since GameKapocs published a minor article about the game as well. Unfortunately then I found out that a reader submitted the piece of news to the editors about the development of Microsystem Gaming Solutions.
2009/04/08It looks like the domestic market is thankful for all the effort invested in hungarian developments. Codename: Panzers - Cold War, the development of InnoGlow and former Stormregion stands on the 12th position of the multiplatform and on the 6th position of the PC sales list in Hungary.
2009/04/06A real freshening is going on among domestic developers. While the towers of hungarian developments with long history are falling one after the other, more and more young, rookie, peomising development teams emerge with real garage development smell. Dimension Technics, working on a rally simulation to the core, falls in this latter category as well. We can find everything sweet to our senses including images, videos and even a playable beta version on the website of Pannonia Rally and the developers. The graphics is nice, a real quality work. Physics is promising as well but needs some fine-tuning. The most difficult is to calibrate the controls to keyboard but it causes some trouble to experienced developers as well. Sounds all fall into place. Only the system requirement is disappointing. Shadows and dynamic reflections eat up the resources of the machine. Aside this minor glitch it is worth a try unconditionally.
2009/04/04The renewed GameStar Online has made a short article about Perpetuum Online. Those who want to learn more about the project quickly should read the article.
2009/03/31Now it is for sure that Square Enix will buy Eidos Interactive and all the subsidiary companies like Eidos Hungary with it.
2009/03/29The Games Developer Conference of this year has ended. Although we have not much to do with it, since there were not any hungarian presenters at the event. We should rather turn our faces towards hungarian developers still. Thos who might want to try the games of Marcell Baranyai or Mascot Entertainment should visit the website of Reflexive. That is the place to find them.
2009/03/29There two games returning to the newest sales lists of Hungary. On the multiplatform list Warfront: Turning Point, the development of Digital Reality is on the 33rd, while Crysis: Warhead, the game of Crytek Hungary climbed up straight to the 21st position from the deep below. On the list noting only the PC-games Warfront: Turning Point became 21st and Crysis: Warhead stands as 15th. Further curiosity is that Overspeed, the European title of Invictus is in the 6th position in the low price category.
2009/03/27I have already said a couple of words about Marcell Baranyai, the creator of BC Kings. GameStar has made an interview with the pillar member of Mascot Entertainment. You can find this video, that says more words about the developer, on GameStar TV.
2009/03/27Codename: Panzers - Cold War did not bring the awaited success. Expectations of the developers were high, but maybe the game got tired during the adversities of life. Critics did not go into raptures over the development of InnoGlow former Stormregion. The moderate evaluation was unexpected because though the game is an umpteen try of the genre but one containing the most innovations.
2009/03/27The website of Perpetuum Online, MMO game has opened its gates. You can find plenty of news about the development on the address like fresh images, concept arts and other sweet things. The venturesome can also register for beta testing.
2009/03/26Jessica Frasher made a once exclusive interview, that is available by now on the entire globe thanks to the Internet, with Botond Szalacsi, a member of Eidos Hungary. You can for example check out the video where Botond talks about the concept of Battlestations: Pacific on Gametrailers.
2009/03/25A new video was released from Battlestations: Pacific that you can find on Gametrailers. The video juxtoposes the contemporary recordings with the images of the game.
2009/03/24What is Aplha-Tauri might be up to? The guys, who were united from multiple hungarian development studios and hence collected their experience in developing hungarian games, are most proud of their physics engine. The knowledge came from developing Screamer 4x4. Their newest development is in gear 1 according to their website.
2009/03/21There is a one-man development studio who had earned to be listed among the best hungarian development teams. Marcell Baranyai can call himself the creator of multiple games. His Boulder Dash remake was voted to be the best remake of the time. Since then he managed to put together two other games, The Dark Legions and BC Kings. The later one was the one to outstand of all one-man developments and makes you wander why the same result requires dozens of people for other development teams. The circle of quality hungarian development teams have enriched by a new member, Mascot Entertainment.
2009/03/20The newest 1.4 version update, that further improves the game graphics and makes all DirectX10 visual effects available via software rendering as well for Crysis: Warhead was released yesterday. The other good news is that Crytek Hungary plans to release an editor as well for the game. I guess everyone awaits what can be modified in the game.
2009/03/20The third Games Developers Forum will be held on the 30th of March, this year. The location of the event is provided by the Cinema City of the newly built Arena Plaza. There will be as famous performers as CryTek, CD Projekt, Neocore or Mesharray on the conference. For further details, please visit the official website of the event.

The package will contain the original Crysis, the Crysis: Warhead expansion and the Crysis: Wars multiplayer titles. And as the name says, it will be sweet, but sugar free.
2009/03/15Battlestations: Pacific has recieved an official release date. We can look for the development of Eidos Hungary by 15th of May.
2009/03/12The Hungarian Television has made a video interview with the crew of Crytek Hungary and an overview of Crysis: Warhead in the Kultúrház program. The video, that was made apropos of the Visual Effects Society award distribution, can also be found on YouTube.
2009/03/10Codename: Panzers - Cold War, the development of former Stormregion and InnoGlow is on the shelves of shops by today.
2009/03/10New images were released from Battlestations: Pacific, the development of Eidos Hungary in the gallery of GameKapocs. There is a couple of map views and game scenes we can take a look at.
2009/03/07Crysis: Warhead, the development of Crytek Hungary is on the 23rd position of the hungarian game sales list.
2009/03/06GameStar has dug up a video interview with Cevat Yerli, the chief executive officer of Crytek. The interview was recorded on the Games Developer Forum of last year in Budapest.

2009/03/02I am very delighted to announce a new hungarian development studio and their soon debuting development, Perpetuum. The game will be a mech, shooting MMO, so massive multiplayer online game. You can already find the first video on the official website of the game.
2009/03/02New images were released from Codename: Panzers - Cold War. You can find the pictures from the development of InnoGlow and the former Stormregion in the gallery of GameKapocs.
2009/02/25Zoltán Pócza, Gábor Mogyorósi and Tamás Schlägl won the prize from the Visual Effects Society for outstanding real-time visual effects in Crysis: Warhead. Congratulations to them and the whole Crytek Hungary team!
2009/02/24War Front: Turning Point, the last development of Digital Reality is now in the 16th position of the multiplatform list of the hungarian sales lists.
2009/02/18Eidos Hungary was marked on the map containing the landmarks of promising subsidiary development studios of Eidos Interactive that Square Enix is planning to buy. These studios are most likely to be kept after the buy-out.
2009/02/17Interesting things happened on the hungarian PC games sales lists of last week. On the list of PC platform games Crysis: Warhead droped to the 25th position. What is more exciting is that War Front: Turning Point, the one-year-old strategy game of Digital Reality jumped to the 5th position.
2009/02/16This year PC Dome has held the vote for the best PC game of last year, so 2008. In the FPS category Crysis: Warhead took the first place and in the multiplayer FPS category, the same place was taken by Crysis: Wars. In the all category list the score of Crysis: Warhead was enough only for the 6th position though. But it is still a really strong result.
2009/02/16So far Square Enix seems to be the most serious buyer who could snatch Eidos Interactice holding the rights to Battlestations: Midway and Battlestations: Pacific and also having Eidos Hungary as a subsidiary.
2009/02/13I have tried the demo version of Codename: Panzers - Cold War. I recognized the logos of Stormregion and InnoGlow as well as a positive surprise. The animations are beautiful, the graphics is breathtaking, although I was unable to examin it in motion fully. I noticed that my computer played the game really slowly. I started to investigate this matter and found a bad surprise. The game used only one of my three processor cores. I hope this error will be corrected in the full version, otherwise buyers and developers are to experience some flaws of each other.
2009/02/12GameStar has written a short article about Hunyadi hadai as well.
2009/02/12The success of Crysis: Warhead, the game of Crytek Hungary is unstoppable. The game is placed on the 5th position on the hungarian sales lists in the category of PC games and is placed on the 8th position regarding all the platforms.
2009/02/12The demo version of Codename: Panzers - Cold War was released. I am waiting in line to download it as well, can not wait to see.
2009/02/11PC Dome has put together a longer article on Hunyadi hadai, the strategy game of Huszár Games. The article does not seem to be 100% objective but it is still worth reading.
2009/02/11A new video was released on Gametrailers about Battlestations: Pacific. The video seems to be a part of a longer interview with the crew of Eidos Hungary and Eidos about the course of development.
2009/02/08The arrival of Codename: Panzers - Cold War is to be expected in 12nd of March under the stars of Atari and InnoGlow. Thanks to the new owners, the official website of the game is available again, though on a different address. You can also see the box design on the website of the publisher.
2009/01/30A bunch of new images were released in the gallery of GameKapocs about Battlestations: Pacific. The images show it very well that the guys at Eidos Hungary are not leaving the success of the game up to fate.
2009/01/28The copy protection of Crysis: Warhead is getting more complacent. The game uses the notorious DRM technology against pirates but now they are willing to yield the installation limit to five installs. For this though you will need to download a small tool program from the MyCrysis website.
2009/01/27Birds say again that Eidos is for sale. It is interesting for us because Battlestations: Pacific is being developed in their hungarian branch, Eidos Hungary. Future buyers include names such as Electronic Arts, Ubisoft, Square Enix, and the Warner Bros. We are all interested how it will turn out and what will the fate of the hungarian branch be.
2009/01/27Crysis: Warhead is planning to collect even more titles. Zoltán Pócza, Gábor Mogyorósi and Tamás Schlägl of the creators of the game were nominated for the international award of the outstanding real-time visuals in a video game of the Visual Effects Society. Crysis: Warhead got such noted challengers as Dead Space and Need for Speed: Undercover. It would not be a suprise if the award was given to one of the games of Electronic Arts.
2009/01/27A new video about Battlestations: Pacific, the game of Eidos Hungary was released on Gametrailers. The video well reflects the kind of effect one might experience when diving into the adventures offered by Battlestations: Pacific.
2009/01/27Hunyadi hadai was released. The strategy game of Huszár Games is available for download from the website of Sulinet. You will need to visit this site for support technique forums as well since the game has no independent website.
2009/01/27Crysis: Warhead has fallen back to the 22nd position of the PC games sales list of Hungary. I personally would not bury the game yet since the original title, Crysis jumped straight to the first position. Those players who will finish the original title and find themselves all content could raise the number of Crysis: Warhead owners as well.
2009/01/25The system requirements for King Arthur has arrived. The minimum requirements are an Nvidia 6600 256MB or ATi X700 256MB videocard, 1 GB RAM and an AMD 3000+ or equivalent Intel processor. The recoomended system specification is not much higher either, it is an Nvidia 8800 GT 512MB or ATi 3850 512MB, 1.5 GB RAM, and an AMD X2 5000+ or Intel Core2 Duo 6420 processor.
2009/01/24As the release of the game of Neocore Games is approaching, the more articles appear about King Arthur on the web. Hardwired put together a short article about the game with some images and an old video.
2009/01/22The Global Game Jam 2009 will launch on 30th of January. It is nothing else but a 48-hour game development competition. If you would like to participate you had better hurry up. For registration and further details visit the official website of the event. If you are from Hungary, you might need to dive deep into your pocket since the nearest location is in Germany.
2009/01/22Gamekapocs was kind enough to publish a really large, quality article illustrated with fine images about the studio developing King Arthur. The interview was made with Zoltán Varga who is responsible to business relationships of Neocore Games.
2009/01/21Crysis: Warhead turned out to be the 14th most sold PC game in Hungary which is a really nice result considering it did not have the whole year to prove itself. According to the developments of yesterday, the success of the game stands still.
2009/01/20As a minor surprise Crysis: Warhead returned to the 7th position of the hungarian PC games sales list. After more weeks of absence we can see the game on the list again probably due to the fact that many people chose the development of Crytek Hungary after recieving the Christmas pocket money.
2009/01/19In the december issue of GameStar we can find an article about King Arthur. The game is developed by the C++ specialists of Neocore Games. The article presents the workflow of the studio to the reader.
2009/01/18It is always good to see if a home production is appreciated by the domestic market. Although one did not have to go to the shop and pay to cast a vote on the Game of The Year poll of GameKapocs it is still pleasing that Crysis: Warhead, the development of Crytek Hungary came third among shooting games and achieved first place for best graphics.
2009/01/17The game development training system is under establishment in Hungary. The current palette is widened by the recently launched course of Széchenyi István University which will concentrate on game development accompanied with the specialists of Crytek Hungary who will help get practice with the aid of CryEngine2 in game programming.
2009/01/15One of the developments of Battlestations: Pacific as opposed to its predecessor was revealed. In the game we can now deploy marines who will capture land objects after landing such as airstrike cannons or airports.
2009/01/14A new video was published about Battlestations: Pacific, the development of Eidos Hungary. The video, which contains scenes from inside the game itself can be found on Gametrailers.
2009/01/13Ten new screenshots were revealed from Battlestations: Pacific, the game of Eidos Hungary in the gallery of Gamekapocs.
2009/01/12Not long ago I mentioned that the Battlestations: Pacific website was unreachable. It seems that the website is back on-line and ever stronger.
2009/01/11In Debrecen, the Mesharray Digital Media School will hold an open day on the Technology University of Debrecen. Everyone who is interested in visiting the event on 29th of January and meet even the specialists of Invictus Games can pre-register on the website of Mesharray.
2009/01/07The website of Battlestations: Pacific has been down for now. Hopefully and most likely this inconvienent step was not taken due to abandonment but the updating of the server with fresh content because of the approaching release date of the game. Hopefully Eidos Hungary will soon come up with something.
2008/12/30New images were published from Battlestations: Pacific as well. You can find them on the website of Gamekapocs, in the gallery of the game. The images are scrubbing the class of breathtaking.
2008/12/29In accompany of a fresh Gametrailers video the on-line game magazine, Játékok.hu has published a short article with some fresh pieces of information on their website.
2008/12/18From 19th December until 28th December Crysis Wars, the multiplayer mode of Crysis: Warhead can be played for free. To get hold of the Christmas present of Crytek, all you need to do is to register yourself on MyCrysis if you haven't done so already.
2008/12/17Although Crysis: Warhead did not win the title, it was nominated for the best PC game of the year on the this year's Spike Video Game Awards. The respected first place was taken by Left 4 Dead from the development of Crytek Hungary, but the nomination is taken as a great recognition.
2008/12/15Luckily the PC game sales list of Hungary is not limited to the first ten places. This way we can see Crysis: Warhead on the 23rd place, although the price of the game just decreased in the recent days.
2008/12/13Crysis: Warhead kept its 13th position on the sales list of Hungary. The development of Crytek Hungary benefits the Christmas season.
2008/12/12The release of Codename: Panzers - Cold War, the development of InnoGlow is expected in February of 2009.
2008/12/11Origo has published an article about Hunyadi hadai, the game of Huszár Games. Only a very few organ has mentioned the game. We can furthermore read in the article about the future plans of Huszár Games to the extent of a couple of thoughts.
2008/12/10Five new images were released from Codename: Panzers - Cold War that you can find in the gallery of GameKapocs.
2008/12/09GameStar has published an article about King Arthur, the startegy game of Neocore Games, in which they would like to inform the curious ones about the details of the one-player campaign mode of the game.
2008/12/08No less than 5 new videos arrived from Codename: Panzers - Cold War. You can enjoy the presentation commented by the co-producer of the game the new trailer video on the website of Gametrailers.
2008/12/02The name of Warner Brothers Interavtive, Electronic Arts and Ubisoft was brought up as well in the case of buying up Eidos. It seems that a only a buy up could bring Eidos out of the deep well of liquidation problems. This is important to us because in case of signing such an agreement Battlestations: Pacific would change owner since hungarian Eidos Hungary is subsidiary of Eidos.
2008/12/02Atari does not joke. It just took up Codename: Panzers - Cold War shaping under the hands of InnoGlow now and we already have a publishing date that is the not so far February of next year.
2008/12/02Crysis: Warhead has droped to the 15th position in the sales list of Hungary. It is even more sad that there is no other domestic development in the first 40 noted game. This could be an explanation why hungarian development studios do not make games according to hungarian taste. Not even the domestic market is in favor of them.
2008/11/28New images were published from Battlestations: Pacific, the development of Eidos Hungary. Examingin the pictures we can see that the guys are updating the graphics engine.
2008/11/28It turned out who will have the chance to publish Codename: Panzers - Cold War, the game that came from the former Stormregion studio and is now under construction by InnoGlow, a newly formed group. The publishing rights are now in the hand of Atari who seemingly have the tenedncy of saving troubled projects.
2008/11/25Hunyadi hadai is also noted on the website of Sulinet. The strategy game of Hussar Games will be available for download from it.
2008/11/24It seems all that Crysis: Warhead missed was a ceremonial burial since the development of Crytek Hungary returned right away to the 9th place of sales list both in Hungary and the United States of America.
2008/11/22The gamers of Project Torque can be happy about a new extension pack. Invictus has made 3 new cars and a new track for the game. There is a new racing, a new street and a new 4x4 vehicle as well as a circuit on the streets of Tokyo.
2008/11/21The crew of PC Dome has visited the Invictus headquarters down in Debrecen. And they interrogated them in a video interview about their past, present and the perspective that had opened on them. Unfortunately nothing is revealed about a future project. It seems that they want to make the most out of Project Torque for now.
2008/11/20Crysis: Warhead is slowly decreasing on the sales list of Hungary. The development of Crytek Hungary was on the 11th position last week and was on the 12th position this week. Meanwhile Crytek, the parent company is expanding in Korea. I hope that this will not push Crytek Hungary in the background and we will soon hear something about their new development.
2008/11/19The castle doors of the website of King Arthur, the game processing the legend of King Arthur has opened. There is not much new about the game of Neocore Games on it so far but I think it is to change soon. Up to then we can read a little about the background of the game and find everything in one place now.
2008/11/12I was just browsing through the website of GameTrailers yesterday but they must have uploaded their newest video linked to a hungarian development, King Arthur, just after I left. The game of Neocore Games is wearing the marks of a real-time and turn-based strategy as well as of a fantasy and a role-playing game. This video turns out to be spectacular as well. The video is to reflect the capabilities of the graphics engine. I can only advise everyone to take a look at it.
2008/11/11A new video was released from the workshop of Eidos Hungary about Battlestations: Pacific. The pre-rendered moving picture shows that we will get a sequel from the creators worthy to Battlestations: Midway, that will be a really professional piece of work. The animations lack almost absolutely nothing at all. They are exciting, spectacular, intimate and the music fits to the scene perfectly.
2008/11/09Crysis: Warhead, the from Crytek Hungary has decreased to the 9. position on the hungarian sales list.
2008/10/31This Sunday, on 2nd, November there will be an autumn break closing Imperium Galactica 2 match. The organizers are waiting for everyone to join. For further information visit the Imperium Galactica 2 community site.
2008/10/30Since nobody is willing to write about Pranksters 3D I decided to examine the game myself. Practically it is a nice remake of Paperboy. The game idea is excellent, the graphics is nicely done, sounds and music are emphasising the mood perfectly. It is only the controlling and the camera view that should be adjusted. They are so bad, they ruin the play completely. What is even worse is that the game can not be uninstalled from a Vista system due to an exception. All together the game barely reaches a mediocre level that could well rise up to 90% with a little updating.
2008/10/28Crysis: Warhead is still on the 10th place of the sales list of the USA. This means that the game has preserved its position of last week.
2008/10/26The new game of Huszár Games is already boiling in the pot. The new startegy game, Hunyadi hadai will work up the campaigns of János Hunyadi. Similar to the game processing the fight for liberty in 1848, this will be available as well for free from the website of Sulinet.
2008/10/25In the October issue of GameStar you can find a detailed evaluation of Crysis: Warhead. Since I did not have a chance to get hold of such an issue I can not say any more about it.
2008/10/24It is interesting to see how Imperium Galactica 2, the eight-year-old development of Digital Reality is still holding its 20th position in the budget category of hungarian sales list. It comes even before Overspeed: High Performance Street Racing, the game of Invictus from this year on the 27th position.
2008/10/23While in Hungary Crysis: Warhead held its position on the sales list and remained in the 5th place, in the USA it dopped to the 10th position and in Great-Britain it fell out of the league.
2008/10/23The smaller fish were out on Games Convention 2008 as well. According to GlassFish Games, they were able to strengthen and enlarge their connections on the expo. In the meantime the demo version of Pranksters 3D was published as well so we can try it ourselves now.
2008/10/18The sales of Crysis: Warhead has dropped to the 7th place in the USA. This means that the shooting star of the development of Crytek Hungary is descending. The sales of the original title, Crysis is down in the 19th place. The mourning tone is though absolutely unnecessary since the game is still by far the most successful hungarian development.
2008/10/16Oops! I totally forgot, but those who plan to sit in the chair of Project Torque nowadays could find a new track in the game. And soon they will be able to roll on it in a Hum-vee. Invictus is bringing all kinds of goodies to the game.
2008/10/14Crysis: Warhead has steped back to the 5th position on the sales list in Hungary. This means a drop of two places.
2008/10/10The Crytek Hungary developed Crysis: Warhead is still hanging on and remains at fourth position on the list summarizing the sales of PC games in the USA.
2008/10/09By now, Crysis: Warhead is on the 4th place of PC-hames sales even in Great Britain.
2008/10/08PC Dome has written a major preview article on Battlestations: Pacific. The article digs down to the bottom of the game and carefully examines it from every angle. We could find out everything we want to know about it. The importance of the article is raised by the fact that the implementation of new ideas and the fine-tuning of the game, with the draw in of the few lucky outsiders, could just have finished.
2008/10/08Linked to the free on-line opportunity of Crysis: Warhead this weekend, a video was published by Crytek Hungary, that you can download from Hardwired.
2008/10/08Maybe the information is not already languid that Gametrailers has published a videotest of Crysis: Warhead. Instead of the hungarian attempt, this one gives objective support of the forming of the evaluation that reaches 84% by the end.
2008/10/07If somebody does not possess an original copy of Crysis Wars but would like to try the game on the free days this weekend, it is available for download in smaller chunks since together they make a really grandious size. GameKapocs provides an alternative server for downloading.
2008/10/06Next to Crysis: Warhead you get a disc containing the multiplayer game, Crysis Wars. The network fun is regulated but you can try it for free on this weekend, on the 10th, 11th and 12th. All you need to do is to register on MyCrysis.
2008/10/06Although it is shameful that it can not be linked directly to any hungarian development, I still feel worth mentioning that Game Show 2008 will be held in the Millenáris on October, 25th. Admission is free and the organizers are waiting all visitors with plenty of program. The above means that both the time and location has changed and it will not be held at Hungexpo instead.
2008/10/06Correction: Game Show and Budapest Game Show are two different events. Both of them will be held independently. One in the Millenáris, the other in the Hungexpo area.
2008/10/05Gamekapocs stood in the line and published a large, 1500 word article on Crysis: Warhead. According to the rule of circumspect orientation it is a required reading to everyone being interested in the game.
2008/10/05In the United States Crysis: Warhead stands on the fourth place in the list of selling. The original title disappeared on the other hand. As I wrote earlier, after the release of Crysis: Warheasd, the original game, Crysis, has reached the third place. But it turns out it was only a pentecostal realm. Hopefully Crysis: Warhead has more reserves.
2008/10/05Crysis: Warhead has opened on the 3rd place on the hungarian selling list as well. This means that it follows the tendencies of overseas and the domestic market does not prefer hungarian products.
2008/10/05Germany has proven to be a very grateful market for hungarian developments. This is supported even by fact that Crysis: Warhead had opened the best here and seized the second place immediately.
2008/10/03It seems that everything is back on track. The website of Ancient Games of Nations is available once again and everything remained untouched. Nothing has changed.
2008/10/03An immeasurably depressing videotest was published on the pages of GameStar about Crysis: Warhead. The mood is maintained by Ender and Mazur throughout the entire video. Although the guys have awaited for the hungarian dub version of the game to test it, somehow they managed to publish the video without us having to hear a single hungarian word. Instead we can listen to the high-flying discussion about Ender's beard. If someone hungers for new Crysis: Warhead videos then here is another one but I would advise the rest to avoid this piece of work hitting the bottom of the standards of GameStar.
2008/10/03Soon Crytek will bring the dream of all game modifier for the creative fanatics of Crysis: Warhead in the form of a software development kit for the game.
2008/10/02The website of Ancient Games of Nations, the adventure game of PrivateMoon Studios is under reconstruction. We are waiting what could the outcome of this be, since the website did not change much even after the success of the fourth episode, The Lost Sword of Toledo, and some features of the website remained closed. We could not hear anything about an upcoming fifth episode neither.
2008/10/02It could be expected that sooner or later the overviews of Crysis: Warhead, the game of Crytek Hungary will start flowing. PC Dome was the first to publish a hungarian article about it.
2008/10/02The second was Játékok to publish an review about Crysis: Warhead. The game received a really high score.
2008/10/01It seems that due to Crysis: Warhead, the expansion to Crysis even the sales of the original game, Crysis has risen and reached the 10th position of the sales toplist.
2008/09/30Crysis: Warhead has opened right in the 3rd place on the toplist of british sales. Congratulations on the nice work of Crytek Hungary. This was a step towards Crytek not stoping to develop for the PC.
2008/09/29The Game Show will be held this year from 6th, November to 9th, November. The organizers are waiting for everyone in Hungexpo who is interested in videogaming.
2008/09/28More of the hungarian developments has closed their websites. The homepage of War Front: Turning Point was closed. Now only the website of Digital Reality stands as a memoire of the good old days of the game. Field Ops has done similarily although it is a game not yet published. For sure there will come a new publisher.
2008/09/27The september issue of GameStar is here. The new issue contains a two-page article of Crysis: Warhead, as the editors had promised before. What is more interesting is that it also put Neocore Games and their recently published game, Crusaders: Thy Kingdom Come, and their new, in-development King Arthur on four full pages. The magazine wrote very positive things about them both and claimed King Arthur to be a blockbuster of the future.
2008/09/26The website of InnoGlow was updated. That means that instead of the old logo there is now a new, bigger, nicer up there. For those who would not yet be familiar with the InnoGlow name, the developer studio was formed by Stormregion to publish Codename: Panzers - Cold War with the aid of a publisher not yet known. The previous publisher went bankrupt.
2008/09/26Two videos were released from Crysis: Warhead, the Avian Sunset Gameplay video which takes a wierd turn in the end, and the Hovercraft Entry Gameplay video. You can find both videos on GameTrailers.
2008/09/25Crytek has launched the MyCrysis website where they are trying to gather the community of the fanatics of the game with the latest news and downloads.
2008/09/25The gates of the homepage of Alpha-Tauri Interactive has opened. The developers wrote themselves on the pages of popularity with Cease Fire. Although they had nothing to say since then really.
2008/09/24An article was published on PC Dome about Crysis: Warhead on the day of its release.
2008/09/23Unfortunately Crytek Hungary voted for the SecuROM protection system hence Crysis: Warhead will be armored with the same method. We hope it will have a smaller effect on the selling than there was in the case of Spore.
2008/09/22The crew of Crytek Hungary has announced that the demo version of Crysis Wars, the multi-player version of Crysis: Warhead will be available soon. They denied though to release such a version of Crysis: Warhead game itself before the full game comes out. They did not promise one even after that.
2008/09/21You can find an article about Crysis: Warhead in the September issue of GameStar as well which will be longer than the previous one as the editors promise.
2008/09/20I obviously was wrong when I thought that the news about Crysis: Warhead were over after the release of the game. Now I have to say that according to the readers of GameStar the game ranked 5th on the list of all the developments of the month.
2008/09/19Today Crysis: Warhead was released with hungarian dubing.
2008/09/18In the August issue of GameStar you can read an article about Crysis: Warhead. It is about the visit to the Budapest headquarters of Crytek Hungary where the crew of the magazine could try out the game as well. On the DVD appendix of the magazine you can find a video interview too.
2008/09/17The press has a really positive opinion about Crysis: Warhead, the development of Crytek Hungary. The game scores in all evaluations above 90% and the jury was persuaded by the optimised engine, the rolling action, the professional cutscenes and the smart ending.
2008/09/17Eidos Hungary is launching a focus test. The hungarian developer team is looking for some volunteers of any genre, age or occupation to help determining the future direction of the development of Battlestations: Pacific. The time has come when the basis has been laid and new ideas could still be fit in the game. You can register yourselves to test on the website of the developers.
2008/09/16A new video was released from the strategy game of BlackHole Entertainment, which could race bravely on the competition of the game with the longest title, Warhammer 40,000: Mark of Chaos - Battle March. The video is available on GameTrailers.
2008/09/15Crysis: Warhead will be available on Steam. So far it can only be pre-purchased but it will be fully available this month.
2008/09/14There are new images available from Crysis: Warhead, which opposed to the heat that rules the majority of the game shows the frozen side of the island.
2008/09/13For tonight I would only say that the detailed configuration of the Crysis: Warhead computer mentioned before has arrived. (Intel Core 2 Duo E7300 2.66 GHz 3M processor, NVIDIA GeForce 9800GT 512MB videocard, 2 GB RAM, G31 mATX mother-board, 250GB 7200RPM 3G SATA-2 HDD, 16X DVD-ROM and integrated Realtek High-Def Audio soundcard, Ultra X-Blaster ATX Mid-Tower Black Case house, mouse and keyboard) It will cost 699 USD and will come with 1 year warranty.
2008/09/12There is an effort to collect all the good old games together in one place and make them available for everyone. Good Old Games is bringing you all this so that they are rewriting the games for Windows XP and Windows Vista as well. So far there has been two major publishers who joined the initiation; Interplay and Codemasters. The beta mode has just been launched and the off-road game of Invictus, 1nsane is also offered for buy.
2008/09/12Today Crysis: Warhead was released. This means that the news-dumping related to the game is probably over.
2008/09/11There is only a few production that we can know the amount of money it cost. Electronic Arts though has informed the public spontaneously that they had spent 22 million dollars to produce Crysis: Warhead. It seems thought that it is worth the money since the first international press review gave the game an evaluation of 92%.
2008/09/10The crew of GameStar was testing Codename: Panzers - Cold War, the problematic game of Stormregion. The excitement of the video, the dense experience of the battles and the narration is ruined by the boring comments of the midfahrer. The visuals look good without any sounds as well though.
2008/09/09Soon the computers holding the same configuration as the machine used for testing Crysis: Warhead will be on the shelves of the shops. The idea comes from Crytek Hungary that Electronic Arts should reveal the system specifications as the recommended requirements. The publisher company with the aid of nVidia though is now planning to release the computers of the kind. The configuration is expected to hold an Intel Core Duo E7300(@2.66GHz) CPU and an nVidia 9800GT video card with 2GB DDR2 800Mhz memory.
2008/09/07Five new images were revealed from Warhammer 40,000: Mark of Chaos, the game of BlackHole Entertainment. The pictures include scenes of siege which you can visit in the gallery of Gamekapocs.
2008/09/04On the opportunity of the imminent release of Crysis: Warhead, Játékok.hu has uploaded an article about the game of Crytek Hungary. You can read the news sprayed into a historical overview of the development. You can find the article here.
2008/09/03We thought that paradise has come for Stormregion when 10Tacle Studios has bought them and invested a huge amount of money in the company. Since then it turned out it was far from that rosey, and when the publisher went bankrupt it pulled Stormregion and their games with itself. Now it became possible again for their last development, Codename: Panzers - Cold War to be released under the star of a new publisher. If that will be Atari or Electronic Arts we will find out later. The developers used the name, InnoGlow instead of Stormregion on Games Convention of this year. Maybe we will see their new website running soon here. The game will feature such developments as the picture-in-picture function or the support for multiple display devices. It will produce all this under a 2.8 GHz-Core 2 Duo processor, 2 GB RAM, and a GeForce 8800 GT. It will worth be following the story of it.
2008/09/02Crysis: Warhead has gone gold.
2008/09/01One week ago, weeks before the planned date of publish, the development of Crysis: Warhead was completed. This all means that we will probably get the game of Crytek Hungary in our hands at the original release date of september, 16.
2008/08/31Játékok.hu managed to get hold of 6 new Crysis: Warhead images. Looking at the pictures we can realize that the graphics has changed little since the original episode of the game. But one thing is for sure. Everything is brought to the screen that the engine is capable of. The resolution of the images are really big so we can see every little detail in the environment.
2008/08/30Thanks to GameStar TV you can watch a compilation about the cross-section of Games Convention. The video starts right away with Crysis: Warhead. Though do not expect anything new! We should have been playing this game, not watching by now.
2008/08/29It has been a month ago when I noticed that rumors are wandering around the Internet about the death of Digital Reality, the hungarian development studio with the longest past. The basis of these rumors was the fact that we could not hear a single word from them for a long-long time. I wanted to prove the rumors wrong and get in contact with them but none of my tries succeeded. I did not want to believe that it is over. And so I waited. And my prayers got heard. They are alive along with Field Ops. The rights of publication switched from the hands of Freeze Interactive to The Games Company and they are vow to present the game.
2008/08/28There have been many gameplay videos from Crysis: Warhead and here comes a new one. The crew of GameStar had the chance to be there personally at the presentation of Crysis: Warhead on Games Convention. The video has very bad quality and was made with a handhold camera, but the background noise and the voice of the presentator goves it the mood.
2008/08/27The award of the first case of a serie of ligitations concerning 5000 users was born between Topware Interactive and Isabella Barwinska. The affected had to pay a fine of 16000 pounds for violating copyright laws. The lady has shared Dream Pinball 3D of ASK Homework.
2008/08/26Crysis: Warhead has presented itself on the Games Convention of 2008 with the updated version of an old trailer.
2008/08/25In a couple of weeks the new service pack for Project Torque, the racing game of Invictus will arrive. There will be a new sequential racing mode, a new explore mode, a new off-road map and cars, a new Thunder Alley track, they will simplify the interface and improve the chat system and fix many more things. We are waiting for it in excitement.
2008/08/24And the Games Convention of 2008 was launched in the meantime with hungarian participants as well. Battlestations: Pacific at the desk of Eidos Interactive, Dream Pinball 3D at the desk of Zuxxez Entertainment and of course Crysis: Warhead at the desk of Electronic Arts will be represented. I will write about hungarian related news coming from the expo later.
2008/08/23Who would have thought that after all these Crysis: Warhead videos the time has finally come for Crytek Hungary to release some images from the game. You can watch them in the gallery of Gamekapocs.
2008/08/22A new video of Crysis: Warhead has arrived. It is a really nice piece of work well put together. It is more moving than the monotone videos before. Similar to the previous one, it is available in two versions. One in higher resolution and the other in lower resolution and Flash.
2008/08/21The first video from Crysis Wars, the multi-player version of Crysis: Warhead has arrived. From Hardwired you can download the original version. This version is so detailed though, that for example my computer is unable to play it without problem. If you have a similar weak computer you can reach the low resolution flash version on Játékok.hu.
2008/08/20The official system requirements of Crysis: Warhead has arrived. We can read the standards of Crytek Hungary for example on the website of GameStar.
2008/08/19The official release date of Crysis: Warhead was brought earlier by four days to 12th, September. Those players who did not get overdozed by the number of news about the game already will be able to hold the game in their hands even sooner.
2008/08/18PC Dome managed to grasp eight really nice, new images from Crysis: Warhead. For examining the images please visit the article.
2008/08/17The website of Crysis: Warhead that opened a couple of weeks ago has been updated with new content including a video and numerous images.
2008/08/16Windows Vista came as a thunder but it turned out it did not quite match the expectations. Hence we can not turn down on supporting the XP. It is this reason why Crytek Hungary decided that Crysis: Warhead will bring the DirectX10 effects to under DirectX9, so that players could enjoy the game in its full pomp under XP as well.
2008/08/14Most Wanted Entertainment is working on three games at the same time. Although only one of them will be available on PC as well. The game, called Chameleon, will be an action-RPG development. It will be presented on XBox360 as well as on PC platform. It is expected to be released in the first half of 2009. The database holding the list of hungarian PC developments on Gregorius' corner was updated hence.
2008/07/31I am trying to find some more irregular news. For a second try I would like to drive you to the refurnished website of Level-R. The racing game of Invictus had been dressed up nicely though it gives browers a hard time. If yours is tough enough it is worth wandering around on it for a while.
2008/07/30TopWare Interactive is playing it hard. They protected Two Worlds before solid like a rock, since they had posted many warning mails to players downloading and sharing their game illegally. Today there are more legal investigations running in these cases. They are planning to proceed in a similar manner in the case of Dream Pinball 3D, the development of ASK Homework that also belongs to TopWare Interactive. You can watch the news including this one in the issue of YouNews.
2008/07/27There is one more creation that was present on the E3 of this year and can be linked to Hungary. It is Warhammer 40,000: Mark of Chaos - Battle March. The long title covers a long development as the game has been forming under the hands of BlackHole Games for over 8 years if we consider this being the expansion of the base game. There are new images available from the game that you can take a look at in the gallery of Gamekapocs.
2008/07/26Naturally some videos were shared with the people showing some interest at the stand of Battlestations: Pacific on the E3 of this year. Of course this could not be held as a secret for a long time and now even those can watch the videos on the pages of Gametrailers who were not present at the exhibition.
2008/07/24Let us continue with the news coming from E3 then! We have another contestant on the exhibition. New images were released from Battlestations: Pacific. Since the website of the game is not yet ready, you can take a look at the images in the gallery of Gamekapocs.
2008/07/23In the meantime the E3 of this year was launched as well. There were multiple hungarian developments present. Who would have thought that Crysis: Warhead was one of the participants? Well, the videos introduced on the exhibition have arrived. You can watch them on Gametrailers.
2008/07/22According to Jatekok.hu there will be a new multi-player mode in Crysis: Warhead that will be called Crysis War. There will also be 21 maps in the game which includes 7 brand new places.
2008/07/21Let's get back to the hews-dumping Crysis: Warhead after this short detour. In the recent past the updated website of the game was launched that also contains a video trailer of the game now.
2008/07/20Every piece of news seems to be refreshing if it is not about Crysis: Warhead. It is good to see that hungarian developers are able to make themselves noted on other fronts as well. An article was presented by Eurogamer about Crusaders: Thy Kingdom Come, the game of Neocore Games. Although the developers are covering themselves by the so-called well known fact about the strictness of the raters of Eurogamer, the receiving of the game in Hungary seem to support the 7 points given out of 10. I must also add that it is far from a bad score for a first development. You can read the article here.
2008/07/19A long time ago, there was a hungarian development published that I have never heard of before. It was published even before this website was launched. Ballpark 3DX is a puzzle game developed by 576Media. It is now added to the database of Gregorius' corner.
2008/07/10Tasty slices of cakes are coming towards the press with overwhelming momentum from Crytek Hungary. Not even today can be an exception of the habit. We can watch some videos taken out of playing Crysis: Warhead. These videos can be found on Gametrailers.
2008/07/09Crysis: Warhead got a release date. We can expect the game to leave the hands of Crytek Hungary on 16th of September.
2008/07/08The year of 2008 Imperium Galactica II. championship is beginning on 10th August 2008. If you would enter you must register before 8th August 2008. The competition rules are coming soon.

2008/07/03Hardwired asked for only a day to publish even more high-resolution images from Crysis: Warhead. What sounds interesting is that they have rewritten the engine from Turbo Pascal to machine code so that the game runs faster lowering the system requirements.
2008/07/02Nowadays everything is about Crysis: Warhead. PC Dome managed to take hold of two new, high-resolution images from the game of Crytek Hungary.
2008/06/30For those, who have spent the weekend away from a computer like me, it could be new, that there is a video released from Crysis: Warhead. For a long time it was in the form of a Youtube moving picture circulating around the web, but now even Gametrailers features it in better quality. Though you will need to scroll down to the bottom of the videos of the original Crysis title, the trailer can be found there as user movies.
2008/06/25The first trailer of Battlestations: Pacific from Eidos Hungary has arrived to Gametrailers as well. Here you can watch the action-packed video in a better quality than you could on the official website of the game.
2008/06/24Those who are continous participants of the joy provided by Project Torque had probably noticed already that there is an attractive lady welcoming the players upon entering the game since the last set of gigantic updates. Invictus Games signed a long-term contract with Bódi Szilvi, or Bódi Sylvi, that she will be the face of Project Torque in the future.
2008/06/23According to the announcement of Cevat Yerli, representing Crytek, Crytek Hungary is currently working on the engine of Crysis: Warhead to push down the limit of the minimum system requirements. If we can believe the expectations set up, the game will have to run without problem on a two-year-old machine, so we do not need to upgrade by all means.
2008/06/22The list of exhibitors and so the hungarian participants on this year's E3 seem to delineate. For sure, Electronic Arts will present Crysis: Warhead by Crytek Hungary and Eidos Interactive will demonstarte Battlestations: Pacific by Eidos Hungary. Battlesations: Pacific just opened its new website in the recent past, and you can also see a brand new movie.
2008/06/21After the poor quality images, better looking visual appetising has arrived from Crytek Hungary, working on Crysis: Warhead, the expansion to the original Crysis game. The most of such images were gathered together by Hardwired, so it is their gallery of the article that is the most worth examining from closer.
2008/06/20The first discourse of Mesharray Digital Media School was held on the open day of June, 5. The staff of PC Dome was present on the event as well and they put together a nice, little report. It is an acknowleged fact that the course is held by the University of Debrecen and Invictus together.

In the latest version Invictus managed to put a carreer mode as well. The newest update like all the others will be downloaded by the game automatically upon starting.
2008/06/17As I have mentioned before, Crysis: Warhead, the development of Crytek Hungary is going to be a PC-exclusive title. The company though is willing to change on this strategy, and in the future they would like to make their games for multiple platforms. According to Gamekapocs, Crytek Hungary has a development for Playstation Portable. It is not known though whether it is going to be the porting of Crysis: Warhead or they are waving a farewell to the PC-platform for a while and so to us.
2008/06/15On this years's Electronic Entertainment Expo, or by short, E3, Electronic Arts will present Crysis: Warhead, the expansion to the basic game, as well, developed in Hungary by Crytek Hungary. It is meant to be a PC-exclusive title.

2008/06/07The 349 megabyte update for Project Torque, the on-line racing game of Invictus, has arrived.
2008/06/05The news exploded like a bomb though it did not make a huge devastation since we all presumed what is turning out to be true after all. Crytek did not open its studio in Hungary before without a cause. The truth is that Crytek Hungary will be responsible for the expansion to Crysis, namely for Crysis: Warhead. Hardwired is in possess of the most visual enchantments connected to the announcement.
2008/06/03GameStar has enclosed a copy of Armies of Exigo to each May issue of its magazine as promised before. Hence everyone has an original copy at home by now.
2008/05/31With the help of the staff of Invictus, the Mesharray Digital Media School is holding an open day on 5th, June, on the Technology Faculty of the University of Debrecen. All the future attendants have to do is register to participate. Invictus is beginning to live its golden era in yellow as much as in profession.
2008/05/30It was a long time ago when I last heard something about Neocore Games and one of their development, King Arthur. Up to now I thought this is the only development of the team. But in the big silence I forgot to examine what is going on, and I missed out on the release of their first game last month, Crusaders: Thy Kingdom Come. It is a real-time strategy game that was planned to be released last November. You can find much infromation about the games on the renewed website of the developers.
2008/05/29Everything is so quiet when all hungarians thirst for some news in this hot weather. Working in the sunshine is a lot harder. Because of this I would like to draw your attention to a small video in which you can watch how 3D Brigade had recorded the movements of the Blind Guardian rock band for one of the hidden missions of Sacred 2.
2008/05/27Attention has focused around Invictus these weeks while the silence roaming around the rest of the hungarian development studios is becoming alarming. But do not let this overshadow the fact that GameStar has published a tasty interview series from the headquarter of Invictus via GameStar TV. You can find the first, second and third episode on the GameStar website.
2008/05/25The redesigned Játékok.hu has published an article about the Game Developers Forum decorated with some images. The frequency of the arriving summaries are decreasing so this is probably one of the last ones. It's not worth waiting for more.
2008/05/24GameStar have put their hands on some images of the beta version of Project Torque. If you are interested in what is waiting for you after the downloading of the update you should visit the gallery of the game.
2008/05/23It seems the big update to Project Torque is going to be about 700 megabytes. At least the Diane version meant for testing is about 700 megabyte bigger than the current updated version of the game. Invictus is doing a great effort on this. The official website of the game is currently unavailable.
2008/05/23The start of the open beta testing of Project Torque is planned for today. We will see how that turns out. If you are interested in the testing keep an eye on it. In the meantime origo published an article about the future of game development and Project Torque is also mentioned as an example.
2008/05/23The list of exhibitors on this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo or E3 is beginning to leak on more and more spots. There is some news concerning hungarian developments multi-deferred. Deep Silver and Namco Bandai are going to be there, who are responsible for Warhammer: Mark of Chaos - Battle March from BalckHole Entertainment. Eidos Games, the subsidiary of Eidos Interactive will be there who has opened a studio in Hungary, Eidos Hungary not long ago. They are responsible for the sequel to Battlestations: Midway, a game of many development studios. And SouthPeak Interactive will be there too who is responsible for the over-seas distribution of Dream Pinball 3D from ASK Homework.
2008/05/20First it was Hardwired to write something about the closure of GDF although there is no real infromation in their article. GameKapocs published a writing somewhat later but it is worth reading as an introduction due to its content.
2008/05/20PC Dome managed as well to come up with a not so long article as an opening about the GDF but in this one you can find some photographs about the event. They write mainly about the curse of Mesharray that I wrote about earlier. For details either visit the article of PC Dome or read back here.
2008/05/20The second article of GameKapocs about this year's Game Developers Forum was created in the name of image-dumping. If you need visual feedback about the forum be sure to visit the page of the article since the guys shared no less than 56 images with us.
2008/05/20Last time an image was released from The Buggy: Make, Ride, Win simulation development on the appropriate forum of SuperGamez. ASK Homework this time presented a short video to show the development is not dead.
2008/05/19The Games Developers Forum was closed without any major problem and with what we can call a successful outcome. The quality of the presentations was evaluated differently by everyone. Everyone had a different favorite presentation and even the most disliked was praised by some. As far as marketing is concerned it was interesting to see again, similarly to last year that tickets could be bought on the spot cheaper than the ones ordered months ago. Summaries of the forum though arrive one after the other. For those who could not be there, it could be nice to read some articles on it. The near future will all be about the Game Developers Forum.
2008/05/18Warhammer: Mark of Chaos - Battle March, the new development of BlackHole Entertainment was released.
2008/05/13Here is what the major Project Torque upgrade coming soon is all about. Invictus has opened the new Diane version to beta testing. First users for Hungary can join the action for which they have to register themselves on the official website of the beta game. The upgrade will contain new game modes, the introduction of a mission-system, new tracks including the japanese mountains and highways, gorgeous girls, further licensed and dreamed-up cars, a 3D conference room, a multi-channel chat system and many more.
2008/05/12If you still don't have a Game Developers Forum 2008 overdose you might want to watch the 142th transmission of LevelUp, where they talk about the forum as well. For the video of the program visit the website of Fix.tv.
2008/05/11Due to an action of GameStar ten lucky winner can buy a ticket to Game Developers Forum 2008 for only 2990Ft. For this, all you have to do is to register yourselves on this address.
2008/05/08Let's see what can we expect from the hungarian development studios on this year's Game Developers Forum! Tamás Fodor from Digital Reality will talk about the real-time video-making and editing tool developed by the company. Tamás Kozák will show us how to develop for the asian market. The managing director of Invictus won his experience during the development of Level-R, a game that was produced for the asian market only. From Eidos Hungary, Botond Szalacsi will hold a presentation about how to make a sequel. Eidos Hungary won the chance to make the sequel to Battlesations: Midway, the game by former Mithis Games. The link between Mithis Games and Eidos Hungary is multifold though examining the past of the two companies. I would also like to mention 3D Brigade who will talk about the preparation of characters for the Unreal 3 engine. You can read the program in details on the official website of the forum.
2008/05/06There is a development that has been in complete silence for a while now and that is Buggy: Make, Ride, Win! We still have to wait for this game to come out of Debrecen since there has been no publisher to lift the game up. ASK Homework is not sitting still until then. They have built a DirectX 9 engine below the game from sketch. A new image has been shared with the pbluc as well.
2008/05/05Soon there will be a major update coming to Project Torque, the MMORG of Invictus. There was nothing more revealed about this so far though.
2008/05/04Let's turn towards the yellow press! There are gossip rising from non-official sources and then flying onwards, thanks to disgusting websites like Gregorius corner, that there are multiple development studios battling with financial problems and their future is standing on vague grounds. These problems could be connected to both Eidos Hungary and Stormregion. Since no official sources have supported these rumors I say we should rather hope things will turn brighter if they need to at all.
2008/05/02Warhammer: Mark of Chaos - Battle March is on gold. The development has just finished but it seems, the success of the game is already given.
2008/04/30We can find Armies of Exigo as a full-version game enclosed to the next month's GameStar magazine. Some of us may even remember that this was the game that Blackhole Entertainment received international success with.
2008/04/29The third patch for The Lost Sword of Toledo, the fourth episode of Ancient Games of Nations, the adventure game of PrivateMoon Studios has arrived. The patch upgrades the game to version 1.03 and is available for download at PC Dome.
2008/04/26Dream Pinball 3D, the game developed by ASK Homework, has travelled to the shelves of the shops overseas along with the fresh new console versions of the game.
2008/04/25The Orc and Goblin warriors are introducing themselves. You can read more and watch pictures about the characters of Warhammer: Mark of Chaos - Battle March on the website of the game. You can also find there new screenshots and a video. The fanatics of the game are looking forward a half-hour-long fun now.
2008/04/21According to an interview that was written by PC Dome, Matrix Games is all satisfied with the games of Huszár Games or Hussar Games. Matrix Games is responsible for the publication of Napoleon in Italy or the english version of Pro Libertate that was made for foreign export, For Liberty. Surprisingly this is why they decided to publish them.
2008/04/17The advertisement specialists of Namco and Blackhole Entertainment have arosen from their two-year's dream. Do you remember the times when contemplating with indigestion the videos released from Warhammer: Mark of Chaos? This practice seems to end now, since we got two nicely directed and produced videos from Warhammer: Mark of Chaos - Battle March.
2008/04/11Imperium Galactica 2 weekend from today! On this very day, 11 April, from 18:00 and on tomorrow from 16:00 starts the warm-up season with the lead of Garrett for an upcoming Imperium Galactica 2 championship organized by the most devoted fan-site of the game.
2008/04/10Project Torque, the game from Invictus has gone wild. After the open testing and many patches and corrections the game has reached a state where the player has to pay more and more to advance in the game after a certain level. After this level the player must reach into his pocket to buy the upgrades to the cars. According to none-official sources 20 USD will give the player about 2000 AP, the money in the game. It is worth watching for the free opportunities to get yourselves some AP though.
2008/04/05Warhammer: Mark of Chaos - Battle March could be on the shelves by 16, March. The website of Blackhole Entertainment's development has opened and as usual for a fresh new game page it contains much information about the game itself.
2008/04/04Unfortunately Tonuzaba Entertainment missed out on a great opportunity to become well-known. Instead of them Wizarbox got the rights to develop Grey Matter. The hungarian developers work was not fruitless since everything they have done so far will be left untouched. And we can grumble about the fact in the awareness of never knowing what could have been if the game stays in the hands of hungarian talents.
2008/04/03I can happily announce that I sank to a level where I felt indispensable to bother the readers with April's fool news as you can see below. I intended it as a joke, even if it doesn't make anyone smile at all, but it seems I could even be right about it. Namely, Cevat Yerli, the lead-designer of Crysis signed in to Game Developers Forum.
2008/04/01It seems that money keeps rolling in for Game Developers Forum. All major american development studios stated that they are willing to pay some amount if there is time provided for them on the forum to talk. It is possible that all american studios will come to the event.
2008/03/28Every thing began with ZZT. A company that can be proud to live with one of the oldest names of computer game development. Epic Games has reached from the ASCII displayed DOS games up to titles like the Unreal series or the console best-seller Gears of War. And it is no less of a person visiting this year's Game Developers Forum than Mike Capps, the president of Epic Games.
2008/03/28If everything is going according to plan, Codename: Panzers - Cold War, the newest game of Stormregion was released by 10Tacle Studios today.
2008/03/27LevelUp has again brought out the roses of hungarian game development in the 137. transmission and so one of the new developments of GlassFish Games, Pranksters 3D was brought up. The video trailer of the game was presented in the line-up, which you can watch for a limited amount of time, until it's removed because it has not yet been uploaded stand-alone to the website of the developers.
2008/03/2610Tacle AG is struggling with money problems. It seems that the publisher company managed to accumulate a 13.4 million euro debt. Numerous developments got into trouble with it as well. Before we had been too much scared that Codename: Panzers - Cold War was among these developments I reassure everyone that the release of the game is in no danger. It will be out in the shop shelves the day after tomorrow.
2008/03/25You can read about two hungarian developments in the March issue of GameStar. The first article is about Battlestations: Pacific from under the hands of Eidos Hungary. Luckily a whole page was sacrificed for this purpose and so there was plenty of space remaining for the pictures to support the writing that has almost four substantive sentences.
The other article on the other hand is about Warhammer: Mark of Chaos - Battle March brew in the kettle of Balckhole Entertainment and stretches along two pages. The length of the article was based on the length of the title probably, because it says nothing more about the game than the essential of the Battlestations: Pacific article. For those though who know nothing about these two games could be a nicely put together source of information.
2008/03/24Nobody should scare if the computer starts downloading with heavy traffix when trying to play Project Torque for the first time after a month break because the newest patch is available. I know nothing about the circa 50 megabyte correction but even the most lay user will notice the new information dashboard waiting for the players upon entering the main menu.
2008/03/21Endre invites everyone to the grand spring opening of Imperium Galactica 2 matches on this Saturday at 16:00. For further details please visit the #2 room of irc.imperiumgalactic2.hu or www.imperiumgalactica2.hu.
2008/03/20There is a development studio that does not develop games of its own but only supplies the games of the biggs with their models and graphics. On the other hand they made a step that is worth mentioning at least in a couple of lines. It happened that 3D Brigade thought, hungarian grey matter could be a good investment so they have opened an educational institution in which the enterprising could learn the masters of the work. The Mesharray Digital Media School was placed inside 3D Brigade's headquarters in Hajógyári-sziget, Budapest.
2008/03/12Due to the success of last year, the Game Developers Forum will be held again this year in Budapest. the one-year-old conference will be on saturday, 17th, May in the area of the MOM Palace Cinemas. (1121 Budapest, Alkotás u. 53.) Registration has been going since 6th, March, and all visitors can count on some preferential offers. Among the presentators you can find such names as Eidos Hungary, Crytek Hungary, Digital Reality, Invictus, 3D Brigade or Stormregion. But such studios will arrive from abroad as Electronic Arts or the Microsoft Game Studio. This year the strictly professional and public-friendly presentations will be held separate.
2008/03/10In the February issue of GameStar magazine you can read a multi-page article about Codename: Panzers - Cold War. Those who plan to buy the game should go and get a copy of the newspaper immediately if has not done so already. There are plenty to read about. If you want to save even more excitement for yourselves you should stop reading here, but I can tell you, the article won't back you off from purchase.
2008/03/09In Battlestations: Pacific the size of the maps will increase to a double of the predecessor. They plan to give us no less than 28 missions in the single-player campaign. And we will be able to control 21 new units in our fleet. There is no news about an idea of a release date.
2008/03/01Yes, it is officially true now, Battlestations: Pacific is coming to you. We were given some images from the game as well. Luckily PC owners will also play the game on their machines since it will not only come to the different console platforms.
2008/02/25We could announce February, 22th the World Day of Twos. There had been 22 new images released from Codename: Panzers - Cold War on this day by PCDome. We still have to wait a bit more for the game after two years, but you can almost touch it, it's so close.
2008/02/24According to the evaluation of PCGames, two games of Stormregion got into the elite top 10 list of best strategy games. Codename: Panzers - Phase Two became the sixth and Rush for Berlin placed the tenth. Congratulations to the guys!
2008/02/22"A Sound Giant Emerges into the Cold. Headset specialist Sennheiser Communications has jumped on board for a chilling ride into the depths of a war torn Europe. It's time for strategists everywhere to plug in to the supersonic sounds of Sabres overhead and the thunderous applause of heavy cannons. It's an experience you won`t want to miss! Sennheiser Communications Supports International Codename: Panzers - Cold War Promotion"
2008/02/21According to the survey of PCDome, The Lost Sword of Toledo reached the sining silver place of the best adventure game of 2007 contest. It is a really strong result from PrivateMoon Studios. The game received more than the quarter of all the votes and came before Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened and only Runaway 2: The Dream of The Turtle was able to outrank it. In the category of the best hungarian development it only came second though. The first place goes to Digital Reality's War Front: Turning Point, which was unable to get onto the stage of the battle going for the title of the best strategy game even with this outstanding result. The third best domestic development was Battlestations: Midway from Eidos Hungary.
2008/02/20Simply there can not be a day without something happening around Codename: Panzers - Cold War. Due to this year's Game Developers Conference there were some new screenshots published from the game that provides some moments of pleasure for our eyes.
2008/02/19According to Gamekapocs, the latest development of PrivateMoon Studios, The Lost Sword of Toledo, the newest episode of Ancient Games of Nations will be released on 22nd, February. But don't believe everything to them, it could only be the international release date since the game has been available in the shops for a while now in Hungary. You should go and see it yourselves and then buy it very much!
2008/02/18Next to the images presented before, where Stormregion wished to demonstrate how the backup arrives to our army in Codename: Panzers - Cold War, now came a video in which we can see in movement this very manouvre.
2008/02/17PCDome has joined the group of those who had published a preview of Codename: Panzers - Cold War. You can read the article here.
2008/02/15Yesterday a new correction package was released for Project Torque, the online racing game of Invictus. The patch is meant to refine the gameplay and correct some program errors. Yesterday the servers providing the patch were highly overloaded but the developers are continuously working on the problem so that everyone can get the new version rather sooner. I would like to also notice that as the publishing date of the final version is approaching Invictus felt more and more insistent to renovate their website which is now available on the old address.
2008/02/14PCDome have found new images of Codename: Panzers - Cold War. As it can bee seen from the news of the recent past, hungarian press is burning of Panzers as far as computer games matter. Public opinion so far supports though that this marketing campaign is of ggod cause, because the game is to be really nice.
2008/02/12Soon the next patch will arrive for Project Torque, the game developed by Invictus. The new correction will contain numerous problem fixes, a fine tuned gameplay and some new vehicles and tracks fro this car racing game. You will also be able to recognise some changes in the old tracks as well.
2008/02/11I myself would have been very surprised if Gamekapocs similarly had not stood in the line behind other ranked magazines to try Stormregion's new strategy game, Codename: Panzers - Cold War. You can reach the article on this address. I would like to quickly notice that all evaluation is based on the beta state of the development of the game.
2008/02/10I break the long silence once again with Codename: Panzers - Cold War. PCLife had written an article about the game that you can take a look at by clicking on the appropriate text.
2008/02/02"Stormregion was nice to grant Jatekok.hu with the opportunity of the editors being able to examine the newest Codename: Panzers game, which is getting into the shops this Spring. They were handed with a test version containing 5 levels that got some really deep look."
The article does not discredit the game as expected after all. But if every word is true of what they are saying then they have no right to whatsoever.
2008/02/01Oh my God! Finally we've made what I thought would still not happen for a while. And that is, to present a video trailer from a game that would never run on my computer in such a quality that it can not be played on my computer. Yes, Stormregion has done it! There is a video published from Codename: Panzers - Cold War which is meant to present the weather simulation capabilities of the Gepárd 3 graphics engine for those who have duch a station at home that is able to play a video of brutal resolution. Those who have no such computer shall not quail. To them there is a lower resolution video available thanks to GameTrailers.
2008/01/29Thanks to a GameStar mistake, the last episode of Gamestar TV was put onto the disc enclosed to the magazine badly. This means that they had to make it available for download from the website of GameStar. Inside the huge-sized archive you can find a video on which the latest development of Stormregion, the Codename: Panzers - Cold War is present as well. There is not much new about the game to find out but one thirsting for videos from inside the game should check it out.
2008/01/28Since it seems that there is such a load silence around all developments nevertheless there was not any box-dumpig on the shelves on any stores even around Christmas, I think it is time to do some game evaluation.

Let's examine Project Torque, the game developed by Invictus. The game incarnates a really rare genre, namely the MMORG, so the massively multiplayer online racing game. Upon downloading the game I experienced a slight consternation when the installer installed some so called 3rd-party utilities without asking my permission. Although later I was compensated because not that these utilities do no harm to the functioning of my computer, as StarForce did earlier, but also increased the game-experience. When I lanched the game I was presented with a nicely carried out on-line support interface that managed really well the servers and rooms. The game comes with the all the benefits of the engine of Cross Racing Championship 2005 and of all the benefits of the corrections carried out on it since then, which means even a slight raise in FPS. It is sad to see though a bug coming back from the early stages of the engine with some disappearing sounds. But everything considered together the game is a really fine piece of work and I advise all to download it as soon as possible.
2008/01/16Inictus has made their first game free to download. The adventure game, onEscapee was once a world hit for the Amiga platform an was later rewritten to the PC. The game is now available for free.
2008/01/14It is a bit late to announce but still very joyful. Napoleon in Italy, the new game of Huszár Games has been published. What is less joyful is that there is no news considering the future developments of the studio.
2008/01/13Thanks to PC Dome, players who intend to enlarge their collection of adventure games or trying to taste the genre in these shortcoming days can read a longer edition review of The Lost Sword of Toledo, the newest episode of Ancient Games of Nations.
2008/01/10Codename: Panzers - Cold War, the new game of Stormregion could arrive on March, 7th.
2008/01/09The first patch for The Lost Sword of Toledo, the fourth episode of Ancient Games of Nations has arrived. The patch corrects the storyline problems.
2008/01/06It is most likely that Dream Pinball 3D will come to Nintendo DS as well. The publishing day of the ASK Homework pinball game is almost the same as the Nintendo Wii version's.
2008/01/04It seems that the sequel of Battlestations: Midway, the game that waved farewell to numerious development studios, is coming to a PC near you. The new episode, that will most likely be developed by Eidos Hungary, got the title; Battlestations: Pacific. The name could very well be telling considerint the plot of the game.
2008/01/03New screenshots have arrived from Codename: Panzers - Cold War, that Stormregion has been working on for a long time now. Hopefully it will be as big a hit as its preparation time.
2008/01/02It seems that we will be able to take the last officially announced title of Digital Reality in our hands in March, 3. We hope that with Field Ops, the studio is not waving bye to the PC game development.
2008/01/01Let's begin the new year with ASK Homework and their Dream Pinball 3D. The final touches are being carried out before the game will come to Nintendo Wii as well. It is probably not the last platform that the game will be ported, and it is for sure that the guys are also bringing us something to the PC platform as well.
2007/12/24So once upon a time, Invictus had started the development of an MMO. Since so far there were only car racing games on the dish it is not surprising that the guys had put together a car racing MMO. On the other side it surprising itself that it is such a surprise that the open beta of Project Torque exists. There is not even a sign of it on the developers' official website. The fresh piece of news is though that the first patch is here.
2007/12/22PC Guru will include two hungarian developments enclosed to the magazine package. The two lucky games that got selected were Rush for Berlin from Stormregion and Dream Pinball 3D from ASK Homework. You can read the ad on the website of the magazine.
2007/12/19A new video trailer, that takes a nostalgic tour in the locations of the previous episodes, was released from The Lost Sword of Toledo episode of Ancient Games of Nations.
2007/12/18New images were released from one of the long awaited developments of Stormregion, the Codename: Panzers - Cold War.
2007/12/11I have the pleasure to introduce to you a new development team, who had already put down their first game to the table. The demo version of Cease Fire, the game by Alpha-Tauri Interactive, can be downloaded from the official website of the game, where you can find many other interesting things. The game is a really fine fighting game that takes the player to an unusual setting of the genre.
2007/12/10The first motion picture has arrived from Warhammer: Mark of Chaos - Battle March that will be the expansion of the game with the similar title. We can see the BlackHole Entertainment logo assigned to the game for the first time, although previously everyone declared that the developer of the extension will be the developer of the original title.
2007/12/09Don't forget that you can get Nexus: The Jupiter Incident enclosed to the december issue of GameStar magazine as the full game appendix! If you haven't already, jot down a note for yourself to buy the magazine next week!
2007/11/29On this link you can watch the last transmission of Level Up, the program of Fix.tv in term of preculsion. The subject was the eFestival. They were speaking with Eduweb Multimédia and their new project under development, called Padlás. A few words are mentioned about Pranksters 3D supported by a video from the game. And an interview was made with Pierrot about the Lost Sword of Toledo and the international acceptance of the Yoomurjak's Ring.
2007/11/28The Club of Pranksters has opened. It is the community portal of the Pranksters series from Glassfish Games. All enquirers are welcome, but the vital component of a community, the forum is still under development.
2007/11/27For a couple of days now, the website of Field Ops, the new game of Digital Reality has become unavailable. Since we have heard about the game a long time ago last time, it is possible that it will be forgotten slowly, or since it is just about time to finally hear something about it, there might be a major update. Or neither of these.
2007/11/26The first patch for Ancient Games of Nations - The Lost Sword of Toledo is here already. The correction updates the game to version 1.01.
2007/11/25The third episode of Pranksters from GlassFish Games will use the PhysX physics engine. Soon there will be a video presented that will show the pranksters moved to three dimensions in motion.
2007/11/25Yesterday The Lost Sword of Toledo, the fourth episode of Ancient Games of Nations got into the stores. We can read about the game on the official website of the game and on Pierrot's website as well.
2007/11/23I did not notice it in August, but beside the demo version, the full version of Pranksters 2 - Budget Worx was published in August as well. The game is especially designed for youngsters in a colorful, tabed manner. It is sold in major stores and even in on-line stores such as Bookline or Netpiac. For Christmas a wider range of publishing is in plan too. The fresh piece of news is that the game won the second place on the eFestival competition of MATISZ, Magyar Tartalomipari Szövetség (Hungarian Association of Content Industry).
2007/11/20ASK Homework has turned towards console development. The studio is currently working on multiple developments for multiple consoles. During this they do not wish to turn a back on the PC users either. They have a couple of PC titles to work on as well.
2007/11/14The website of Monster Garage has closed. The Activision Value category development was produced for the US market. The game was not sold in Hungary. Compared to the rest of the Invictus developments, the game's support was finished quite early.
2007/11/13Ten new images were published from the new Stormregion development, Codename: Panzers 2 - Cold War.
2007/11/04It's been nearly twenty days since I wrote a mail, that I have sent to both the official e-mail address of the publishers both the official forum of Word of Chaos. In this I had asked about the game, including the future intended to it. Because there has been no activity whatsoever since, and because all official sources seem to be neglected for a log time now, I guess that could only mean one thing concerning the future of the game, and that is total oblivion.
2007/11/03Origo had noticed the newest development of the studio led by Pierrot, and had written a longer interview with the head of the idea. The conversation does not stick strictly to the development so we can take a wider perspective behind the scene.

2007/10/13PC Dome has turned towards hungarian developments once again, and has written a larger summary of Rush for The Bomb. The game is the expansion of Stormregion's Rush for Berlin.
2007/10/09An interview with Pierrot, the founding member of PrivateMoon Studios, who is responsible for the development of Ancient Games of Nations, has been revealed. He is speaking of the details of the newest episode, called The Lost Sword of Toledo. The most important piece of information is that the game will be available only in a box edition, not via internet download as before. The interview is colored by newly released images presenting the game.
2007/10/03It seems that the publishing of the new creation of PrivateMoon Studios, the upcoming episode of Ancient Games of Nations, which goes under the title of The Lost Sword of Toledo will be significantly delayed. After a long silence, finally two video trailers of the game were released.
2007/10/01Faruk Yerli, one of the founding members of Crytek had mentioned in an interview, that the newly founded hungarian subsidiary, Crytek Hungary, works as a sterling studio, since all workforce resources are available. They are working on the expansion of Crysis and another franchise, not yet announced.
2007/09/26Let's break the silence once again with Codename: Panzers - Cold War. There are four images presented from the game, which can be viewed at the website of Hardwired. The argument rising in the topic of the piece of news below is about the moderate success reached by hungarian RTS developers in the rest of the world as opposed to the great success reached on the hungarian and german market. To this I would only add that Germany is considered one of the largest if not the largest market in Europe.
2007/09/21I guess I must have missed this thing back in time. I honestly can not imagine that the hungarian press in general had not focused enough on the 1.03 version patch of War on Terror, which can be found on the official website of the game.
2007/09/20The website of Armies of Exigo has closed. In our commemoration we could mention that this game was the first hungarian game to be taken care of by Electronic Arts.

2007/09/17Back in time, it really kicked up the dust, when the turned based strategy game, processing the Rákóczi War of Independence of a development studio, once HydroGames now called Huszár Games, was released for free by the favour of the Education Ministry. This ofcourse happened from the money of tax-payers although not helplessly considering the dropping performance in education of the student-aged population of the country. The story though does not end here as the game became totally unavailable for an entire year. The full coverage can be studied on the site of Origo.
2007/09/13Let's turn back a bit towards the headquarters of 3D Brigade! The cast of PCDome visited the team on a shooting using the motion capture technology. A real curiosity has also occured on the recordings, made for the new medieval game of Neocore, in the character of a horse. This was the first such event in Central-Europe. Considering the whole of Europe, similar case took place on the recordings of Two Worlds, the new game of Zuxxez and Topware Interactive, who also patronized the hungarian development of Dream Pinball 3D from ASK Homework.
2007/09/12By favour of JátékokHu we can watch the full presentation of 10Tacle Studios on this year's Games Convention about the new development of Stormregion: Codename: Panzers - Cold War. On the last couple of weeks this game was clearly the leader of all the hungarian developments. Furthermore I'm waiting for the answer on the forum of Gregorius' corner to the question: what is Stranglehold exactly in the article published?

2007/09/03Not long after the launch of the Codename: Panzers - Cold War, the first video was published from the game. The video is not really good quality, but certainly presents the game. Those, who have time in the beginning of school should visit the website of PCDome to download the video.
2007/08/31This could be something interesting and new for some of you. On the network of YouTube, one of the tech demonstration videos of Nexus: The Jupiter Incident 2 was released. The sequel to the original Nexus: The Jupiter Incident title has never gotten released probably due to the problems surrounding the later development studio. However the fanatics of the game had launched a petition to finish the next episode of the game.
2007/08/31After introducing a policy in Germany, similarily to other countries which have already introduced such a policy, that marks the development of violent videogames an act of crime, Crytek is looking for a new headquarters as well. The interesting turn in the matter is that Crytek opened a subsidiary a couple of months ago in Budapest after a thorough and long evaluation. This means that it could easily happen that Crytek would choose this very location for its parent company.

2007/08/24There was an article published in Germany about the top 100 strategy games. Our little country, we can say, performed really well since there can be found 5 hungarian titles in the first five places. Out of these, four can be linked to Stormregion. On the podium you can find Rush for Berlin, Rush for The Bomb and Codename: Panzers - Phase 2. The fifth place goes to Joint Task Force by Most Wanted Entertainment. The game uses the Gepárd engine of Stormregion as well. In the fourth place you can find Warhammer: Mark of Chaos by BlackHole Entertainment. A big congratulations goes to everyone!

2007/08/13The demo version of Pranksters 2: Budgetworx, the sequel to Pranksters, a fun game by Glassfish Games, is ready to download.

2007/07/05It seems that things are rolling smooth for Stormregion. You can read an interview about them on the pages of PCDome.
2007/06/22It is Stormregion again who is breaking the long silence. It seems that 10Tacle's purchase of the company was a successful investement. The publishing company decided to sign a pre-contract with Stormregion about two projects worth of 14 million euros. The titles howerver are yet unknown.
2007/06/05Darmstadt, June 04, 2007 - 10Tacle Studios AG (ISIN DE000TACL107) today acquired 100% of Stormregion Software Development Kft., Budapest.

2007/05/25After a long period of evaluation Crytek voted for Budapest. The development studio responsible for FarCry and Crysis is coming to Hungary, opening a studio in Budapest. Our capital won the votes not only because of its beauty and good workconditions but because there is sufficient amount of informatician workforce with fine quality. The new studio will probably supply auxiliary items for the games using the newest CryEngine, although it is possible that using the talented hungarian startegy game developers, there will be a new real-time-strategy game developed for the CryEngine.
2007/05/17It seems that Most Wanted Entertainement will survive in its form. It is known that the team has gone through some very tough times in the not so far past.

On the official website of the game you can also read about the heroes included in the expansion.

Those not owning any of the sequels should wait for the release if they plan to buy it.

The new technology was developed by Microsoft. They brought up the fact to defend their views, that the hardwares supporting the new routines are not yet as widespread as it should to make it worth the change.

Probably the development of the game will stay in hungarian hands.

2007/03/24Word of Chaos is finished! The development of the game of Brainfactor has come to an end. It represents four years of work of the development team. It seems all the wait was worth it, since the german language version of the game has gone gold. It seems we will have to wait until May for the english language version to come out.

2007/03/22A review of War Front: Turning Point, the development of Digital Reality, has been released on PC Dome. The game is one of the most awaited domestic developments, while it is everything but the first game of this category. It is worth mentioning that the game scored better in all the aspects that affects the mood than in the aspect of the mood itself. There is another review presented on GameKapocs where there is the fourth video trailer of the game enclosed as well. All together the review of GameKapocs has a positive outcome.
2007/03/12The 10Tacle Studios had closed a really successfull economic year last year. The profit of the company has risen by more than 50% all together. This means that the besides the new game of Digital Reality, Codename: Panzers: Cold War, which is being developed by Stormregion and is to be published along with Electronic Arts, is in really good hands. The first images were released from the game as well. There is no real improvement in the graphics engine compared to previous hungarian strategy titles of the last couple of years, but the game may dazzle us still in movement.

2007/03/06Last month I had mentioned, that an expansion is under development for Rush for Berlin.

So far it seems certain that the quality of the expansion will be at least as good as the original title.

2007/02/27We can read two hungarian articles already about Battlestations: Midway. One of them was written by Hardwired, the other one was written by GameKapocs. Both articles mention the adversities of the life of the game. If we take a look back in time, we will find that Battlestations: Midway has gone through several worktitle changes, due to leaving behind several development teams going phut. On the other side both articles agree at the end, that the game in most aspects deserves a positive remark. The game has reached the illustrious 5th place on the english sales toplist for the PC platform. On the list considering all the platforms, the game came first, which speaks for itself.
2007/02/27The Vista patch for both episodes of the Codename: Panzers serie has been published. The newest patch for Phase 1 got the 1.20 mark, while for Phase 2 the newest patch got the 1.07 mark.

2006/09/23A few images and a new video presenting the elves was published from Mark of Chaos.
2006/09/22I would say that the first patch for Joint Task Force has arrived, which will upgrade the game to version 1.1, althoug it is almost certain that this patch is not long awaited since the game was put on the shelves only a couple of days ago. Therefor only a few of us had the lucky opportunity to meet the game and the unlucky opportunity to experience its unstable operation. The patch will correct this problem and add a couple of new maps.
2006/09/20The new development of Stormregion, Codename: Panzers 2 is worked on under the guiding eyes of german 10tacle and the world brand, Electronic Arts. The new game will take place in a fictitious setting unlike its predecessors.
2006/09/15Joint Task Force is on the shelves. This week, a week later after the oversea release, the game was is in the stores of Hungary is well. Thanks to this we can take a look at the most up-to-date video teaser.
2006/09/15I have the opportunity to happily announce that after a long, chronic, dense, dark, dusty, cold, silent fog that surrounded Brainfactor and their new development, Word of Chaos, the game is once again heard of. Development is not only still rolling but almost coming to an end polishing up the game. As a consequence, a spate of images and a couple of videos were released from the game. Also the german official website of the game was launched.
2006/09/13We can update our galleries of War Front: Turning Point with six images.
2006/09/10Two videos of Warhammer: Mark of Chaos has been shared with the public by the creators of the game. One of the videos can be found on the website of GameStar, the other is on the pages of 3D Gamers. Besides the gallery of published images was refreshed twice as well.
2006/09/06There can be found new images from Field Ops on the pages of GameKapocs. There are 29 real nice, fresh pieces of glamour in the gallery.
2006/09/04Dream Pinball 3D was published in Europe today. Hungarian release is not yet known, but it will be 576Kbyte publishing the game in Hungary.
2006/08/27Discreetly we get images infiltrated into us from War Front: Turning Point. Although I would not force these close up shots from the game since there are some really low resolution textures looking at the player. From birds-eye-view though the program shows impressive.
2006/08/27The beta-testing of Warhammer: Mark of Chaos has begun. For detailed pieces of information please visit the forum on the game's official website. There is also a video presenting the playing of the game. It is not really a nice piece of work but worth checking out for fanatics. The images published are a much better choice.
2006/08/27The demo version of Joint Task Force is available for download.
2006/08/27"The patch for version 1.2 of Stormregion's RTS Rush for Berlin is now available. But that`s not all! We're also releasing the eagerly anticipated Developer Tools for the game including the editor as well as the packer software! You will now be able to make your own missions, and modifying most of the game to your liking."
2006/08/27Dream Pinball 3D is on gold. The pinball simulator has been completed and is soon awaiting the players on the shelves of PC game stores. We can expect new images to be published soon as all tables has been redrawn and texture and auxhiliary object details has been doubled.
2006/08/26And once again new images were released from Warhammer: Mark of Chaos. This time as well, the most varied forms of beasts are displayed on the serie. Besides we can take a look at some sea units.
2006/08/26Though Battlestations: Midway has not gone through dazzling improvements to the eye, basically it has been looking the same for a year now, it is certainly appealing that we get signs of life around the project that had a very stormy background. It almost seems as if the game will be released sometime. It is good news for the XBox360 console owners that they will be able to enjoy this piece as well.
2006/08/26We can delight ourselves with the new images released from Joint Task Force. The fifth episode of the video series presenting the development of the game was released as well.
2006/08/23Gamekapocs was kindly presenting some new images of Warhammer: Mark of Chaos. Enumeration, ork invasion and everything that pleases.
2006/08/11We can worry about Brainfactor and Clevers development studios as both company's website was closed in the near past. Brainfactor besides many of its smaller developments can note Word of Chaos under its name. Clevers was making a brand new game engine titled Paradox. But now we can only guess what will the fortune of the two developments be.
2006/08/05War Front: Turning Point was enriched with a new unit. Of course the presentation comes with new images that we can take a look at on Hardwired.
2006/08/04Soon there will be so much material available about Joint Task Froce, that it would take a longer time to take a look at all the images and videos than the time the game would provide to play. Of course there is something new revealed in each row of images. It is the same with this one, that presents the stealth in operation. Also, the fourth part of the video that lets you sneak behind the stage became available.
2006/07/26Nowadays everything is about Warhammer: Mark of Chaos. Inside CGSociety everyone is talking about the perfect, artistic animations of the game. We can read on the webpage of CGSociety a deep interview about the rightly famous intor movie that was entered to the contest as well. Besides, new screenshots were revealed on multiple news portals on July 21 and 24. If that would not be enough, in the recent past a new in-game video was presented.
2006/07/24It would not be Hungary if there was not at least a single scandal around a development studio. On the other hand it seems that it is not only our domestic press that we can count on to munch on these juicy stories. There are examples of this offshore. Though the excellent raw material is provided by our people. Those interested in a fat story that could well fit a brazilian soap-opera should read the article on GameStar about Joint Task Force without hesitation. It is based on reality in its entirety. For most recent findings, visit the Híradó site!
2006/07/23GameKapocs shared the recordings made on the press presentation of Joint Task Force.

2006/07/02Finally the first moving picture presentation of FieldOps, the new game of Digital Reality, arrived. We can welcome a really nice piece of work in it.

Beside the video we can take a look at numerous new images as well that are also meant to present the beauty of the graphics.
2006/07/01PC Dome had put together an evaluation of Digital Reality's new game, War on Terror. The game has just reached the strong mediocre level according to PC Dome. The weakest point of the game is its sounds.
2006/07/01GameStar paid a visit to the offices of Most Wanted Entertainemnt and unmercifuly tried the most recent version of Joint Task Force. About the result of the rehearsal you can read on the coloumns of GameStar within the confines of an article filled with images from the game.
2006/06/29Although the Ageia PhysX physics engine is as doubtful among some as for example the StarForce protection system, more and more developers reach for the hardware supported physics. Now the Most Wanted Entertainment does so and bought the licence for Joint Task Force. We can get an answer if it was a useful step to take, once we check out the short demonstration video.
2006/06/28There has been a Warhammer: Mark of Chaos video published in which the developers will introduce us the game and the interface. On the video we can see a couple of other games from the publisher as well.
2006/06/27PC Dome joins the rest of the game magazines and published an evaluation of Rush for Berlin in which the game got a strong 8,5 grade. The result of the reader's opinion was slightly lower as usual in most cases. But all together Stormregion had made an excellent job with the game.
2006/06/26The Kharkov battle tank introduces itself from War Front: Turning Point, the new startegy game of Digital Reality.
2006/06/26We can take a look at the development of Joint Task Force. Of course there is no crime movie that could work up the events around former Mithis Games, but it is still worth checking out the video since it rather concentrates on the technical aspects of the development.
2006/06/24The Imperium Galactica 2 community is planning the big opening of this season today to which everyone is of course invited. If you feel like joining don't forget to visit their website for further information. The war begins at 18:00, CET, tonight.
2006/06/22The english language version of the game called Pro Libertate, being developed by Huszár Games, will be available from 4, July under the name of For Liberty. Since it will be published mainly overseas therefore the primary campaign will be the american war of independance between 1775-1783 instead of the hungarian Rákóczi war of independance.
Now we can take a look at 13 screenshots from the game.
2006/06/21War Front: Turning Point, the new game from Digital Reality will arrive in september. Now we can take a look at three new images on the Hardwired. Mostly we can examine a new tank.

Digic Pictures is well noted for their computer animations and special effects since they were the ones creating some shots for the Vajna production, Terminator 3 movie. Now they drew attention by making dazzling animations for Warhammer: Mark of Chaos. Back in time they could have already found the way to our herats with the introduction animation of Armies of Exigo, and now they had entered the intro of Mark of Chaos into Siggraph.

Now the 3D snooker game of the development studio won the People's Choice Award on Sun Microsystems's Duke's Choice Awards outing.
2006/05/30One of the virtues of Warhammer 40,000: Mark of Chaos is the immense number of units the engine is capable of displaying on the screen at the same time. Maybe this is the reason why BlackHole Entertainemnt decided to share an innumerable amount of images from the game.
2006/05/29Not to quiet down the battle on the virtual front here is a minor gallery refreshment on the side of War Front: Turning Point. There are four new screens to surprise the curious for Digital Reality's new game.
2006/05/29The Most Wanted Entertainment, not to make Battlestations: Midway disappear in the dense fog over sea, had published some screens from the game. According to the images the graphics engine of the game changed very little if any at all during the last one year. Units and the scenery looks the same as they did on previous pictures. The value of the images is only to announce the survival of the project having gone through a series of serious problems.
2006/05/28Who would have thought that the next article on the virtual columns of PC Dome to be released was about Rush for Berlin. Of course for the situation not to be so simple there is another article with a similar feeling about War on Terror. Digital Reality and Stormregion launched a scenic rivalry on the front of popularizing their games.

There are no news about the legal decisions and the tribunal finding crime or imposing sanctions of any kind.

2005/12/14Unfortunatelly I have to break the baffling Christmas silence with a not so celebrating piece of news. The Magyar Hírlap, a major representative of hungarian press reports about the inconvenience that Stormregion had to suffer.

"According to the suspicion of the police, the company's ex employees could have stolen the development module that they had published a new game with."

It was this year's spring when the demo version of a new game had been enclosed with a magazine that did not bear a frightening resemblance with the Gepárd engine only according to Lajos Góczi, one of Stormregion's owners, but now also according to the police and forensic technicians. They have determined a Ft 65 million ($ 300,000) disadvantage at Stormregion's expense. This had been assessed according to the fee of a single developed game but according to Stormregion the total loss is about Ft 500 million ($ 2.3 million), which is the total value of the engine. This amount is greater than the one year income of Stormregion.
2005/12/02New images were released from Warhammer: Mark of Chaos. The game of BlackHole Games planned to be released in 2006 had overcome some minor tuning well recognisable on the pictures although the raphics engine was claimed to be ready at the time of last revelations.

2005/10/19Still not in the far past some additional, exclusive screenshots were published on the pages of GameStar from the new game of BlackHole Entertainment, the Warhammer: Mark of Chaos. Now one can visit the homepage of the developers as well if one would like to read about the project.

2005/09/22"Digital Reality and CDV Software Entertainment AG are proud to announce their cooperation on a Next Generation Strategy title!"

The CDV Software Entertainment AG, one of Europe's leader PC Game publishers and Digital Reality development studio based in Hungary announce to launch a joint console-project. The goal of the association is to create games with thrilling game-play and stunning graphics for the next generation consoles.

This claim seems to exciting because Stormregion, who were in a good relationship with CDV Entertainment, just recently switched publishers saying CDV is close to going bankrupt. One thig is for sure. Somebody is mistaken in this matter.
2005/09/22Yesterday, right after I uploaded the news about the new screenshots from War Front: Turning Point, a video trailer had been published showing the rolling demo running on an exposition. As well expected from Digital Reality, the graphics is stunning and it is a really exciting experience to see the images we've got so far from them in movement. The game is to be expected in 2006.
2005/09/21New screenshots had been published from War Front: Turning Point, the new game from Digital Reality. The images are quiet small in resolution but everything is visible and they reflect a really decent mood.
2005/09/20ASK Homework in association with eGames, nVidia and Iridion Interactive had brought to gamers a decade of pinball games. Now there is a time and desire to change streamline. But before all that happens ASK Homework is ready to bring you the ultimate pinball game, the most grandiose pinball game there ever was waving a farewell to the genre and thanking all our fans and players for chosing our titles. We would also like to address PC, XBox and Nintendo DS owners with the release of this game. We would address all aspects of a pinball game and raise it two levels higher. We'll put everything in this left inside us.

Why is it worth changing your old slot machine to Dream Pinball you ask?

Simply because Dream Pinball
- offers a challange featuring 4 levels of difficulty enjoyable for all ages. Young, old, amateur and proffesionals can also find delight in this title. The game will have probably the easiest as well as the most difficult gameplay levels ever introduced to a pinball game.
- features multi-layer 3D sound effects maybe never ever seen in a pinball game.
- provides 15 different themes and multi-level tables, which means that a table is devided into separate sections giving the player the feeling as if s/he was playing on multiple tables at the same time.
- comes with a real-time physics engine almost naturally from ASK Homework, except ever overtuned and advanced from previous titles.
- thanks to its fabulous physics engine can surprise the player with 10 different material balls such as steel, wood, stone, paper spitball, etc... each having a dirt effect. The more you play a ball, the dingier it gets.
- is invested with a never before seen crash engine that means when kicking the machine too much it will break in different ways including cracking and tearing glass covers. :)
- can be played from 6 different pre-set camera views that can be increased to infinity with the brand new tool, the view adjuster. You can set and save your own views simply navigating the camera.
- revolutionises the pinball multiplayer mode including fun for up to four players on the same or different tables in network or on split screen supporting ladders.
- makes all this in the new DirectX9 environment calling to power such effects as HDRI, Motion Blur, Depth of Field, Bloom or Particle Simulation with the aid of which we can draw smoking tables bursting out in fire, sparkling metal balls or blinding shine of steel surfaces. But ofcourse not to exclude anyone from the fun the graphics engine can be keyed low to run on lower configurations.

With one word because we supply pinball head over heals, turned inside out showing you one of the most ancient representative of all times' amusementarcade.

Game development is in final touches and we are currently looking for publishers for this product.
2005/09/19The Codename: Panzers - Phase One encyclopedia had been updated with wings.
2005/09/17The hungarian section of the GlassFish Games website had been launched. Not all pieces of information had been already uploaded but for sure the missing pieces will be complemented.
2005/09/16Syntax Entertainment had cancelled their project named Critical War - Secret Creatures of World War II . There is no reason to panic though since they in the same time had announced their new development, Killer Machine 3 using the Killer Engine 3.
2005/09/14Have you ever wondered how it would feel to chase birds, flying leaves, squirrels or maybe even your opponents in the wild with a buggy rolling on four wheels? Buggy: Make, Ride, Win! offers nothing else but this on the highest level and with the most diverse way of fun.
When we say feel we mean to experience the stunning graphics brought to you by our engine developed for this very game capable to display 12 vehicles on the screen bouncing on the bumps of a racetrack built up from 200,000 polygons.
When we say in the wild we mean to wade through the grass or water, to kick up the dust, mud or forest litter, the wind and opponent vehicle components brushing your hair as you tear them off while leaving your skidmark on the way in and out.
When we say rolling on four wheels, we mean to drive our four-wheel physics engine through the hills and valleys of nature with different terrains such as grassland, cliffs, sand dunes or to control it on the track with several road types such as gravel, mud, sand choosing your own tyres providing a numberless way of driving experience.
Game features a single-player mode campaign as well as over 10 different multi-player mode competition from Circuit Race through Return The Flag to Soccer for up to 8 players. Game would track scores inside the room providing a room ladder with a built-in score exporter for other on-line ladders.
There are over 8 different detailed vehicles made up of 10000 polygons. Each having a cock-pit view with fully set up interior.
And if that would not be enough already, the game comes with a map editor having the easiest to use interface. Build your map displayed real-time with the game engine raising and lowering terrain by a mouse-click. Paint terrain with a brush and place ponds, lakes by dragging your mouse. Hundreds of obstacles and various vegetation to choose from.
Make the world, ride the wheels, win the run!
The Buggy project is back. After one year of halt ASK Homework is bringing the grasshoppers alive.
2005/09/11The Stormregion website had revived and we can read fresh pieces of news in a completely new setting. One fresh straigh from the oven is that the new 1.05 patch for Codename: Panzers - Phase Two had arrived online after the german release. Also the whole music score of the game is available for download. For further details please visit the game's website.
2005/09/08Ffodderr of the Terminator 3: War of The Machines Forum reports that there is the first user-created map ready for community alpha test. I'm sure many of us had been waiting for this to happen.
The map is based on Digital Terrain Elevation (DEM) maps of Mount St. Helens and the surrounding area. The map is at a proof-of-concept level. It is map number 12 in the scheme-of-things and is named "Helens". For further details on the project either visit the appropriate Yahoo Group or ask your questions here in the forum!
2005/09/06There is once more a mediadumping from Rush for Berlin that means new screenshots and a video edited for Game Convention. Besides you can read an interview in hungarian with the representative of Stormregion.
2005/09/06Játékfejlesztés had announced that Flying Range II- Long Way Home space simulation game, developed by RPI Games, had been completed. The background story is that in the year 2026 the Lowis And Clark battleship is constructed on Earth and supplied with the first spacerocket. During the test flight the ship and its crew get lost in the galaxy. You will be the master of the ship and it will be in your hands to navigate it back home. The shareware version, in which gameplay will be restricted to 20 minutes, will be available through the webpage of RPI Games.
2005/09/05A patch had been released for Codename: Panzers - Phase One that makes the game compatible with 64 bit operating systems. The DVD version does not require you to download the patch.
2005/09/04Although I have not seen news nor affirming nor confuting this, Army Racer being developed by 576Media is probably available in stores by now according to previously published release dates.
2005/08/27Sándor Lázár had left us for a better world. For the players he left as a reminiscence his whole work including his hungarian dubing performance in S.W.I.N.E. and Codename: Panzers - Phase Two. We front what sadly came to pass, wish he may rest in peace and send our sincere condolences to everyone who knew or loved him!
2005/08/26Stormregion had announced a screenshot competition for Codename: Panzers - Phase Two. For details please visit the official website of the game where you can find a guide to the map editor as well!
2005/08/26It has been a while now, but I haven't announced the fact that there has been new screenshots published from War Front: Turning Point.
2005/08/26Even longer time ago, but never told here a story says that there are new screenshots from Rush for Berlin.
2005/08/23I have the enchanting opportunity to present a new hungarian development studio and its development, Way of Crime from VIVO Games Entertainment. The developers are putting together a driving game about the crime on the streets of Budapest with a decent background story. They don't promise us complete realism concerning the display of the city but for sure we will be able to recognize the capital of Hungary.
2005/08/22World Forces: War on Terror from Digital Reality is scheduled for first quarter of 2006.
2005/08/19New screenshots are available from Rush for Berlin on Gamekapocs. Let's hope that gameplay will reflect the wonderful graphics and the game will provide an excellent entertainment. The website of the game is currently not available and the webpage of Stormregion is still under construction.
2005/08/19There is a piece of news that is circulating on the internet nowadays and there are as many interpretations of it as many pages had been writing about it so I will announce one more interpretation. According to the sources Stormregion had signed a contract with 10Tacle Studios AG about the publishing of a game entitled Codename: Panzers 2 scheduled for 2008. Some make the bad assumption to identify the game with Codename: Panzers - Phase Two although one should recognize that Phase Two is really Codename: Panzers 1 - Phase Two and the earlier is called Codename: Panzers 2 being a completely different development and rather the fourth epizode after the trilogy with a new publisher. The game will not be set in World War 2 though. Jumping to a conclusion that the game is Phase Two is not valid also since Phase Two is already available in Hungary and scheduling the international release for 2008 would be an illogical step.
2005/08/16Yesterday Codename: Panzers - Phase Two had been published in Hungary.
2005/08/12Invictus as well as Stormregion is attracting the venturesome by offernig jobs at the development studios.
2005/08/12Digital Reality has opened their new website. Let's check out the fresh news about their upcoming developments.
2005/08/06HC Gamer had published an interview in which the editors inquire the section of Stormregion who is working on Rush for Berlin. We can take hold of some interesting pieces of information as well as some exclusive screenshots. I would like to take this opportunity to draw everyone's attention to the preloaded website of the game.
2005/08/05It has been a while since we last heard about Brainfactor. The developers held a few presentations here and there and produced for foreign order some motioncap wonders but for gamers they began to fade into the fog. Although they have produced "minor" titles such as TortugaBay or Witchcraft, these products made to the shelves for only a few stores unfortunatelly. After their last development they hit it hard and started the development of WordofChaos which was going under total seclusion. Nothing was leaking from behind the curtain. I was beginning to lose hope to see the game when for my inquiry a message came that I should undoubtly see some results soon. Well it came in the form of a video trailer presenting the game. It is a must have for role-playing game lovers!
2005/08/04It had been confirmed that Blackhole Games has won the rights to Warhammer. We can only congratulate to the guys for being able to get a grip on a brand like that. The game is as far in development that it runs. There will be a lot of work with it though still.
2005/08/03The long-awaited patch for Cross Racing Championnship 2005 has arrived and it contains new maps and game modes. It is more appealing to download patches this way for sure. The product is available via Invictus Live!
2005/08/02It has become certain that Codename: Panzers - Phase Two will feature hungarian dubbing produced by famous actors such as András Stohl, Gábor Reviczky or Zolee Döglégy. The first epizode of the game did not come with a hungarian language site but the second will be presented in such language.
2005/07/18The first Terminator 3: War of The Machines mod addressing maps is under development. Thee_immortal_one had informed us that he is currently working on the first user created map of the game. Hopefully we will see some of his development.
2005/07/17A bigger trailer video of Army Racer had been published and the demo version of the game can be downloaded as wll.
2005/07/10The section of the fourth epizode of Ancient Games of Nations under the title The Lost Sword of Toledo had been opened on the game's website.
2005/07/09Jimbo not that long ago had told us that although the exam periods had slowed down the development of the Terminator 3: War of The Machines map editor they are to continue working on it with even more enthusiasm. Since they were not completely neglecting the project in the meantime it is about to get finished and as soon as it will be reliable they will share it with us along with some maps.
2005/07/08Do you remember Terminator 3: War of The Machines made by Clevers' Games? Real fans of the title will know that the development of the game went through many small tumbler to have become what it had become. Not so true fans will always remember the title as one of the biggest disappointments in gaming. Since then Celvers' Games had been silent as grave and the only pieces of news coming through were that they are looking for programmer and designer experts in first person shooters. Time to time we have been given some screenshots about their future development but finally yesterday they cleared all rumours by publishing a technical video of their engine. I think after watching the video everyone will forget about the past and will eagerly wait for what the future brings. The guys had proven that Terminator 3: War of The Machines was not up to them.
2005/07/08You could set your swiss watch to Stormregion. The demo version of CondenamePanzers - Phase Two is here.
2005/07/07Gamer's Hell had put up a new video about Armies of Exigo to download. It is a bit late since the game had been published a year ago but it is no reason not to promote the game still.
2005/07/06I am happy to announce a new hungarian development. 576Media known for Road to Fame and Army Racer is now going into a new direction with the game about the adventures of Captain Zoox and Pingy still addressing younger players or ones looking for an accommodating way of fun.
2005/07/05The on-line gaming server of Nexus: The Jupiter Incident had collapsed and hence needed to be moved to a new address. Since the game also features a fix address gaming server for on-line gaming that is supposed to be always functional gamers will need to download a patch for the game to update the address of the server.
2005/07/04Creature Conflict: The Clan Wars from Mithis Games had been postponed to September.
2005/07/03If one has not yet found these images in the infinate universe of the internet then this wormhole here is right for one leading the traveller to the appropriate galaxy. How much I wish if Digital Reality had led us into the galaxy the same way with their next game. It seems though that the developers found their new stream in ground war games. As a proof should stand these images newly published from Moscow to Berlin. The game is not to be mistaken with Rush for Berlin another hungarian development.
2005/07/02Finally the hungarian circuit of Army Racer had been revealed. On the updated website of the game you will find other pieces of news freshly added. There is also a trailer video for the hungarian market.
2005/06/26The town of Eger had called for a tender to process the history of the town in a computer game. You can find names like HydroGames or PrivateMoon Studios among the applicants. Read the tender dossiers and cast your vote according to your taste.
2005/06/25A bigger breathing Cross Racing Championship 2005 ingame video had been released. If someone had not decided already upon the game or maybe had and would like to delectate oneself should donwload the video. Because of size matters broadband connection is advised.
2005/06/24In the meantime the demo of Pranksters had arrived quietly. The program of GlassFish Games promises the fun of old times' games.
2005/06/23According to GameStar Invictus is bringing most of the game modes of 1nsane into Cross Racing Championship 2005. Therefore we will be able to download Jamboree and Destruction Zone beside Capture The Flag as well as the circuit racing could renew.
2005/06/22New screenshots had been revealed of Codename: Panzers - Phase Two. The images mostly try to reflect the mood of an evening battle. In the game of course the lights can be switched off decreasing view range and visibility.
2005/06/17New screenshots were published of Codename: Panzers - Phase Two. You can see the new images on Wothplaying.
2005/06/10Finally everything had been cleared about the screenshots of so far unknown origin on the site of Digital Reality. Appearantly the developers are currently working on an other title as well, called World Forces: War on Terror as on War Front: Turning Point. The most challanging innovation in the game of the genre is the random map generator for multiplayer gameplay.
It seems as if Monte Cristo was going to war against CDV along the other hungarian development studio, Stormregion, calling themselves the leaders of strategy gaming in Europe.
And if thatwasn't enough, we can take a look at Ghost Wars as well on the homepage and read about a not yet announced game.
2005/06/08In this month's issue of PC Guru the enclosed game will be Haegemonia: Legions of Iron.
2005/06/03Maybe enough time had passed to bring up the tehem of Second World War. Let's take a look at what happened in the last week around Codename: Panzers - Phase Two.
There is an encyclopedia about all the units that the game features. There are also two new minor teaser videos out.
2005/06/03The first patch had been published for 1848. According to PC Dome, the patch addresses the following issues; attack from different angles, it is more difficult to pass enemy units, new random events such as escape, after battle the winner can capture goods, multiplayer support via e-mail. Many minor bugs had been fixed and the story-line had been modified as well.
2005/06/03I just have brought up the events around Codename: Panzers - Phase Two and it looks like GameStar had published new screenshots of the game.
2005/05/27The demo version of Cross Racing Championship 2005 is finally here.
2005/05/27Under the control of Deep Silver there is a new Stormregion game under development by the name of Rush for Berlin. Even from the title one could guess that it is a Second World War startegy game, but aside this fact and that it uses the Gepárd engine developed by Stormregion it has nothing to do with the Codename: Panzers series developed by Stormregion as well.
The website of the game is still under construction but from the homepage of the publishers the E3 trailer video of the game can already be downloaded.
2005/05/25All is quiet on the Black Hole Entertainment front. Despite the success of Armies of Exigo the re is few to hear about the developers. Well, there is something that seems to overcome the thick layers of black curtain surrounding the team. It looks like Black Hole is soon to experience a name change and will work under the flag of Synergy Entertainment in the future.
It is among the pieces of announcements of E3 that the team had taken grasp of a name not less than "Warhammer" and is currently working on a game with working title of Warhammer Fantasy. We hope that it is not far away we will know more about this probably strategy stream game.
2005/05/25A new interesting piece of information had been shared with gamers about Digital Reality's War Front: Turning Point. This game, unlike its predecessors, will be a base-building strategy game. As an extra, here's a cover design.
2005/05/23Clevers Games knows very well when to speak out. The events of E3 had just rolled along infront of our eyes and the developers had decided to share a little secret with us from their newest development. It is worth checking out the pictures and I assure you, you will have shiver running down your spines in every which meaning.
But of course on the official homepage we can see more screenshots.
2005/05/21It seems that Digital Reality grew out of its old website and needs to create new into which all their former and undergoing projects would fit. Not only will we be greeted by a new site but also could be by a new project since there are two images up on the temporary opening page that does not fit into either already announced Digital Reality projects.
2005/05/20The video trailer of Codename: Panzers - Phase Two is available for download. The film was recorded on E3 of course at the stand of CDV.
2005/05/20The program of this year's E3 has been already really busy despite the lack of electricity, and so CDV's screendumping didn't get mentioned. As I stated earlier, two hungarian developments are being put on the desk of CDV; the first one being Codename: Panzers - Phase Two while the other one is Digital Reality's new game, War Front: Turning Point.

Naturally with the release of the video came hand in hand the screenshots from Panzers. Graphics had changed in minor aspects which is not that surprising. One should never change on the winning formulae. But what the images don't talk about is that based on reviews of Phase One the gameplay of Phase Two had been modified.

The other imagedumping came about War Front. IT seems that these larger images, were able to turn on their side the incredulous people who turned away from the game due to previously published smaller screens. The coloring and lighting of these scenes are not as extravagant as the ones before were.
2005/05/16Still before the opening of E3 new screens had been published from Digital Reality's War Front: Turning Point. Developers had taken a brave step when integrating an alternative historical event into the plot of World War II according to which Hitler dies in the first days of war and hell goes looser than ever. Weapons or their prototypes get under operation not seen in those times or actually never ever seen. To emphasize on unreal aspects of the game Difital Reality had made some revolutionary turns graphics-wise. I guess I do not have to state that these moves have devided the gamer community. But check the images for yourselves.
2005/05/14A new trailer video of Cross Racing Championship 2005 had been released. Or the first one since the game had gone through major cosmetics. The video is not that long but rather puts you in the mood of wanting to roll. The 63 megabyte trailer can be downloaded from Invictus or the game's official website as well.

It is among the events of past days that the game had officially reached gold status.
2005/05/06There was an update to the website of Army Racer being developed by 576Media. We can download a new piece of video from the page, and new maps were revealed as well. The only circuit that we have no image about is Hungary.
2005/05/05Invictus after the release of the big patch that upgraded the hungarian version of Cross Racing Championship to Cross Racing Championship 2005 had released other patches via Invictus Live! but the reason why it is worth running the program again is that the capture the flag mode is available for the hungarian release.
2005/04/25Well, then let's visit one of the most quite corners of the Hungarian Plains, the Clevers Studio!
2005/04/23Ten new screenshots were revealed from Cross Racing Championship 2005. The images show the crashing model.
2005/04/23The list of products presented on this year's E3 are becoming finalised. Thanks to CDV we will represent Hungary with two games on the expo. One of the games will be Stormregion's new hit, Codename: Panzers - Phase Two, which according to both developers and publishers is to overthrow the success reached by the first episode they hope.

The other game, due to which we are becoming habitues on one of the biggest informatics expositions of the world is Digital Reality's sci-fi Warld War II title. The game just got its final title recently and it is to be War Front: Turning Point.
2005/04/22There is an Armies of Exigo championship soon to be launched. Black Hole Entertainment, one of the most successfull development studio of Hungary offers you to win even money with their game. Don't worry, if you don't own the game you are not out of the league since all you need to download in this case is the multiplayer demo of it. If you liked the game you even have the chance to win an issue since it is among many other prices. Subscription numbers are limited and based on the first come first served method so the sooner, the better is to subscribe.
2005/04/22Thee_immortal_one had reached a really important step in the development of the Terminator 3: War of The Machines mapeditor project which goes under the name of testing. He claims to have finished the conversion tool that will convert maps made in hopefully a diverse selection of 3D mapeditors to the T3 map format. Therefore we can await the birth of the first map made with such method.
2005/04/21This piece of news is just 5 minutes old and according to it Cross Racing Championship released in Hungary is now updateable to Cross Racing Championhsip 2005 via Invictus Live! In a short form the first patch has arrived to the game that will reform it from top to toe. International release will feature the patch.
2005/04/16Let me quote from a letter that Invictus sent around the web and the official version of which you can find on the website of Invictus as well. The piece of news arrived just a few minutes after the last update of my site and unfortunately I only have the opportunity to share it right now. The main point is, doves and seagulls made a match. (The quote is not an official translation.)

"On this very day (2005.04.13.) Invictus announces that it had entered into a patronising contract with Sirály Rallye Team. 'It is a great relief to know such a serious sponsor as Invictus Games Kft. behind us for the 2005 season.' - declares Gyula Fejes, chief of the Rally team. The team currently racing in class H with a white Lada VFTS having the licence plate AKY-228 had won on 19-20 March 2005 march in the F3 category the Junior Hungarian Championship race held on Hungaroring. Tamás Kozák, lead of Invictus-Games Kft. welcomed the satisfaction of Sirály Rallye Team with the so far ongoing co-operation and as a result, the logo of the company, will be shown on the racing vehicle hopefully bringing profit as well to the sponsors.

Sirály Rallye Team will continue on providing help for Invictus Games Kft in the creation of upcoming titles. Barnabás Gál and István Bara, the navigator and pilot of the team in past months had contributed to Invictus making its newest game, CRC 2005 and will continue to do so in the future by giving professional pieces of advise as a result of which the games of Invictus will hopefully get even closer to reality."
2005/04/15Digital Reality had promised that on E3 they will uncover their newest game, War Front but the first screens has already arrived. The game would best fit into the World War II - fantasy genre, since according to the story, the war had ran five years longer and the sides had the opportunity to use weapons that luckily they had not developed in reality. The visuals brought to us by the screenshots tend to push the genre to the fantasy world as well, since the lighting effects are somewhat further from being real. Weather the game will feature unitproduction or will continue on the way of buying our troops is yet unknown. The website of the game is already under construction and hopefully we'll know more soon.
2005/04/13The first screenshots were released from Mithis Games' Joint Task Force. The real time strategy follows the trend set up mainly by our beloved developers' games, such as Desert Rats vs Afrika Korps, D-Day or the Codename: Panzers series. There is no reason to fear for the guys since it looks like the game will stand its ground in today's strategy-dumping. We can see real-time shadows and props being affected by the physics engine on the pictures.
2005/04/13Deep Silver, the german publisher and developer studio had bought from Stormregion their Gepárd (cheetah) engine. This engine was responsible for the entertainment in S.W.I.N.E and the Codename: Panzers series, in the case of the latter it still will be. With this wimple Stormregion can feel itself represented on this year's E3 expo, since Deep Silver had bought the licence for their upcoming strategy title to be announced on the exposition.
2005/04/13Invictus had asked for only a couple of days of more patience from fans and the patch for Cross Racing Championship that will upgrade the game to Cross Racing Championhsip 2005 will be available. International release will feature the upgrade by default but the new english demo will be out some time around the patch comes to life if all goes according to plans.
2005/04/13There has been a major update to the Army Racer homepage. There are many pieces of news and frustrating updates on the site.
2005/04/13I have found a really interesting and puzzling thing in this year's E3 representatives list. Amongst many hardworking developers' and publishers' even more dazzling games there is one that caught my eyes. We can read under the name Dreamcatcher Interactive the row; Haegemonia: The Solon Heritage. I would be the most delighted if one could enlight me about the reason the game goes to the expo this much time after the release. Unless we are talking about erratum.
2005/04/05Thee_immortal_one succeeded in the deciphering of the physics file of Terminator 3: War of The Machines. Hence we can say we made a minor but really difficult step towards the birth of the mapeditor. The work is not yet over, since there are plenty of things left to puzzle. The gentleman would like to ask all venturesome to help him decode the graphics file.
2005/04/01The hungarian version of the Cross Racing Championship 2005 website is finally functional. In the meantime Invictus had published some sketches in the appropriate section of the site.
2005/04/01The official website of Creature Conflict: The Clan Wars has been opened. We just got the multiplayer demo recently and now there are further things revealed of the game developed by Mithis Games if we dive into the brand new site. We can take a look at some new screenshots and concept art images just to mention a few. Have a good time in the parallel universe!
2005/03/30Road to Fame just hit the stores and already 576Media is working on the serie of the game, the implementation of the racing in military settings. We can take a look at some images and also read a hungarian interview about Army Racer.
2005/03/24Road to Fame, the game being developed by 576Media had been released.
2005/03/24The guys inside the walls of Stormregion are preparing themselves for a big bang, but not for the one just about to pop. They are already preparing themselves for the work they are looking forward in the creation of the third phase of Codename: Panzers. But let's not rush ahead so much when Phase Two is just about to get released. Before the bursting energy we get a major teaser video of what's coming up. Watching the trailer one will salivate at once. I can advise people even with a monochrome monitor to download the video since it doesn't show the Gepard engine in its full glamour but through the effect of the nowadays so popular sepia film effect. We could hear about the news that Stormregion had asked for the help of over-seas directors and script writers to create the mood of Pahes Two. I can say the move had its effect since the trailer will grab you, suck you in and never let you go. It is just like a Hollywood production. Well, enough about praising, just check it out!
2005/03/22 had taken grasp of some fresh images concerning Battlestations: Midway. On one of the three new screenshots we can examine a japanese warship while on the rest we can be part of a battle.
2005/03/20There is a patch availbale created by fans for Imperium Galactica 2. Although the word, patch, could be misleading since it doesn't cover the content of the matter, the file of which can be downloaded from the biggest, still active fanpage of the game. The program rather contains minor modifications and some useful utilities for online gaming. Therefore it is primarily advised for those who conquer the space online.
2005/03/18The demo version of 1944: Battle of The Bulge had been released. For those who liked previous epizodes it is certainly a must have. You can find several links to the demo by turning to the appropriate page of the website of the game. We are talking of a quite heavy piece of 290 megabytes.
2005/03/15The demo version of Creature Conflict: The Clan Wars, the next game of Mithis Games had been published. A smaller tutorial would have been handy to include but the gameplay is acquirable with a bit of practice. Graphics is showy and the mood will suck you in. For the first run one could raise the question, how much will the game resemble to the Worms series. After one minute of gameplay the question will not be raised once again.
2005/03/13Let us hit the road! In recent days there have been more than plenty of pieces of news coming from all parts of the hungarian development world. First let's take a look at Invictus who proudly announce that they have renamed Cross Racing Championship to Cross Racing Championship 2005. In itself it does not seem a momentous change but behind the rechristioning stands numerous heavy changes including the graphics engine, handling system and lots of other parts of the game that got addressed by fans concerning previous demo version publications. These changes meant so much to the gameplay, that developers and publishers saw almost as inevitable to rename the game. We can only say we hope that one day we can confirm on that. Up until then we can examine some new images reflecting the polished graphics engine.
2005/03/13Mithis Games had launched the website of Battlestations: Midway. The site is simple and still eye-appealing, besides a new video trailer had been uploaded to it as well that reveals a little from the game with its low resolution. Hopefully there will be more and more information on the page shortly. One thing is for sure already, it is not only the gamers waiting for this creation but the craft as well.
2005/03/13Terminator 3: War of The Machines is going through difficulties worth being processed by a minor soap-opera. I have just revealed the creation of a mapeditor for the game these days and yesterday evening came the e-mail, that the operator of the forum giving ground also for the debateforum of the undercoming editor is no longer willing to keep the forum up. There is no need to panic though since this morning the job was taken by Jimbo to whom we would like to say a big thank you! Of course a bif thank you goes for warshipfc as well for creating a forum for us fans up to this day.
2005/03/11Thee_immortal_one had committed a minor breakthrough in the modification of Terminator 3: War of The Machines. The genius is working on a mapeditor for the game and he is planning to reach the state to generate a flat terrain one of these days. The job is certainly difficult since almost every tiny bit of the game is hardcoded. The map polygon display and collision detection are stored in separate files and format therefore by modifying an existing map would result in characters still colliding into walls that no longer exist or walking through new ones. Atari had already, after one year of support, cancel both the site and support of the game but thanks to the fans the game still has a life. Although many have thought about rather creating a Terminator mod for one of the similar games out but this initiation could bring the game back.
2005/03/09Hardwired reports that due to an agreement between HydroGames and the Ministry of Education the game processing the 1848 Hungarian revolution will be available for no cost. Although publication was announced to happen tomorrow the game is already downloadable from Sulinet's appropriate site. Certainly this is one of the best news we could have got tonight. This way not only the gaming experience but history will be spread on a wider scale.
2005/03/08On Thursday, the game called '48 that processes the 1848 Hungarian revolution and was developed by HydroGames will arrive. Although the deadline for publishing had been postponed several times, the game is finally here. Of course all bad news has a brighter side, this way we will for sure get a better quality game, just like the developers' startegy claims.
2005/03/08The homepage of PrivateMoon Studios is available again. Those who have bookmarked the opening page of the studio will now need to replace their bookmarks. The slightly modified design lets you to browse more easily on the site and find relevant information about the published epizodes. The online game ladder got a more frequent place as well.
2005/03/08Inivtus Games had redesigned their opening page as well as PrivateMoon Studios and had arrenged their so far published products. But that is not all. In the row of games, they have placed a small sign that makes us think real hard, is there a new game the guys are already working on?
2005/03/04576 Media is proud to announce that Road to Fame has gone gold one week before the release. The game will be available in the Ezt vedd meg! category right away with a price consolidated to hungarian vallets.
2005/03/02Mithis Games back in time undertook a great manoeuvre by taking upon the parallel development of Nexus: The Jupiter Incident and Battlestations: Midway. Although the engine of the two games are basically very similar later other games were included in the parallell development. This time we get some refreshing images of the latter, Battlestations: Midway. There are no new things on the screenshots but the units being familiar from older screenshots are now dressed up in a completely new fashion. The textures are getting detailed and auxiliary objects are augmenting.
2005/02/28Although the website of PrivateMoon Studios is not available at the moment there is no reason to panic. The guys are currently working on the redesign of the page. In the meantime they have published a couple of new screenshots from the Toledo episode. From the jungles of the previous episode we will find ourselves in a surrounding habitated more densely this time. According to the images, the mood of the beautifully designed settings are raised furthermore by the excellent light effects. The pictures are worth checking out.
2005/02/28The polishing up of Cross Racing Championship is going unbroken with the imminent approach of deadline of international publishing. Although the hands of Invictus are burning high there is still time to reveal some goodies on the game's website for those who don't yet own a copy of the game. Due to the low interest level the site is not yet available in hungarian but to keep the international attention the section showing the vehicles of the game and another displaying some artwork and renders had been opened.
2005/02/18New maps had been released from Codename: Panzers - Phase One meanwhile some units from Phase Two had been let to go as well.
2005/02/13The section of the Cross Racing Championship website where the tracks included in the game are presented has opened. We can therefore get amused by the hungarian mudflood, the indian summer in the United Kingdom, the finnish glaciers, the french alps, the german racetrack and the shores of Los Angeles.
2005/02/11Although we still have to wait a couple of days until the release of Codename: Panzers - Phase Two, but Stormregion and CDV had decided not to disappoint faithful players of the first episode and they have released a new map for the game that you can download from WorthPlaying.
2005/02/11We have got a new Nexus: The Jupiter Incident demo. You can find the demo on WorthPlaying.

2005/02/08We can dive a little deeper into 1944: Battle of The Bulge since the website of the game is just about to get a life. The game is the newest in the row from Digital Reality following Desert Rats vs Afrika Korps and D-Day. This third episode is probably the final at the same time in the Second World War series. It will feature new units and the snowy environment will provide a completely different atmosphere for sure.
2005/02/04Stormregion thought it would not be very nice move to bore us with no action whatsoever for a couple of days. What else could have they done than to release dozens of screenshots and some very beautiful artwork from their upcoming game Codename: Panzers - Phase Two. You can find them on the official site of the game.
2005/02/03The Cross Racing Championship website had been renewed. Let's face it, the old site screamed for a renovation since it was really dark and plain.
2005/02/02The first patch for Cross Racing Championship has arrived and available through Invictus Live! It is said that the patch will probably be available soon in other form as well. The list of enchantments are yet unknown but the game was criticised because of its control or handle and the correct initialising of certain videocards hence the patch is probably intended to cure these issues primarily.
2005/02/02I'm proud to have the opportunity to announce a new development studio founded in 2004 and registered in Gyál under the name, GlassFish Games and their new game called Pranksters. The upcoming gem is enrolled with a really original concept and will be placed in a decent isometric environment.
2005/01/29You can find a few additional screenshots from 1944: Battle of Bulge on the reborn site of Gamekapocs.
2005/01/29Certainly Codename: Panzers - Phase Two cannot afford being pushed behind rivals and Stromregion had published new screenshots of the game the same time Digital Reality did.
2005/01/21A smaller burst of pictures was published of Codename: Panzers - Phase Two. The images are still beautiful but we will certainly be more excited about the innovations in the game engine. What more can the game offer in the second episode. But of course you should still check out the screenshots.

2005/01/21There has been further details revealed about Digital Reality's new game 1944: Battle of The Bulge. The graphics engine is beautiful as ever, but I hope I don't see two units slided onto each other on the first published screenshot.
2005/01/19The long-awaited had happened. CDV had published a modification pack for Codename: Panzers. Our happiness is multifold, as we can not only make our own enchantments for the game in our home workshops but also hope that upcoming episodes of the game contain updates that cannot be made via a modification pack.
2005/01/13The second patch for Armies of Exigo has arrived. The patch updates all previous versions to version 1.3. The list of updates can be found here.
2005/01/13A new patch is available for Street Legal Racing Redline via Invictus Live!
2005/01/13Moonline Games being responsible for the development of The Seventh named horror-game had disappeared from the web. The homepage of the studio informs us about a couple of second-stop because of maintenance, but the case had been the same for nearly a month now. The search engines provide us no longer with relevant hits about neither the developers nor the development. Let's just hope it is nothing serious, only temporary problem.

2004/10/06Mithis Games is living it large. After the company had finished the development of Nexus: The Jupiter Incident, they are not only beginning the development of their first TPS but also a brand new strategy game. What makes the development more special is that some former members of Stormregion will join them too. This is a fortunate situation since there were games like Codename: Panzers getting out of under the hands of Stormregion. On the other hand the company had let developers go. Let's all hope this is the case so only because the engine of Codename: Panzers is basically done and further development of the sequel requires less developers rather than because of material or other sorts of problems of Stormregion.
