CD Projekt Acquires The Molasses Flood, The Studio Behind The Flame In The Flood

CD Projekt has announced that it has acquired The Molasses Flood, the studio known for games like The Flame in the Flood and Drake Hollow.  This news comes by way of a press release from CD Projekt that says The Molasses Flood is a perfect fit for the studio group. The studio will be working on one of CD Projekt’s IP, although it will retain its own identity and won’t merge with any existing teams in CD Projekt.  “The Molasses Flood will be working in close cooperation with CD Projekt Red, but will keep their current identity and will not be merged with existing teams,” the release reads. “The studio will be working on its own ambitious project which is based on one of CD Projekt’s IPs. Details about the project will be announced in the future.”  CD Projekt specifically cites The Molasses Flood’s technological insight and experience as reasons for the acquisition. “We’re always on the lookout for teams who make games with heart,” CD Projekt president and CEO Adam Kiciński writes in the press release. “The Molasses Flood share our passion for video game development, they’re experienced, quality-oriented, and have great technological insight. I’m convinced they will bring a lot of talent and determination to the Group.”  The Molasses Flood’s studio head, Forrest Dowling, says the studio saw an incredible opportunity in becoming part of the CD Projekt group, which is also the home of CD Projekt Red, the team behind The Witcher series and Cyberpunk 2077. Dowling says The Molasses Flood’s acquisition by CD Projekt will allow the team to reach a much wider audience.  While waiting for more details on The Molasses Flood’s next project, check out Game Informer’s The Flame in the Flood review and then check out our Cyberpunk 2077 review.

    Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered Gets a New Face For Peter Parker

    The graphics aren’t the only thing getting a facelift in Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered when it hits Playstation 5 later this year. James Stevenson, Insomniac Games Community Director, revealed via Playstation’s official blog that John Bubniak is no longer the facial model for Peter Parker. Instead, Ben Jordan’s likeness will now appear in the game as Peter. However, Yuri Lowenthal’s vocal performance as Peter remains in the game (via SuperHeroHype). The net effect makes Peter seem much younger in the Remastered Edition. Jordan’s resemblance to MCU Spider-Man Tom Holland is also hard to ignore.

    You can see for yourself in the clip below. It features an important scene between Peter and his mentor, Otto Octavious. This is also an early glimpse of Otto’s transformation into Doctor Octopus.

    

    Insomniac Games creative director Bryan Intihar issued a statement on Peter’s radically different look in the PS5 remastered update, which you can view below (via SuperHeroHype):

    Additionally, Stevenson spoke about the upgrades for the city in the game.

    “The team has done the painstaking work of updating the city’s environment to take advantage of the new console. Beyond improved models and materials, one of the biggest things we have brought to the game is ray-traced reflections and ambient shadows. We now have true reflections on the windows of buildings, and it looks stunning with our new skies and weather.”
