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.

    Baldur's Gate 3 Save Issues Fixed Following Recent Patch Update

    Baldur’s Gate 3 is in Early Access now and Larian Studios has been very transparent that the game will be buggy as they mass test it. That being said, the studio has launched several major patches to work towards a full launch. Unfortunately, the latest update had a few hiccups regarding saves. 

    The good news is that the save issue seems to be resolved thanks to a rollback. The latest update began to offer more bug fixes and gameplay tweaks. Following its deployment, players began reporting that they could no longer access their saves. Larian quickly took note and rolled back their most latest update to a previous build, allowing for D&D fans to pick right back up where they left off. 

    While the game is only in Early Access with Act I offering anywhere between 25-30 hours of gametime, the response has been immensely positive. The transparency of issues going into booting up this title for the first time helps, but the passion and dedication to D&D is also wildly apparent in how this game is set up. 

    I personally have been loving my time with the game. While I’ve already wrapped up Act I, I did boot up another character to try out some different choices. Since these saves won’t transfer over when the game fully launches, I’m letting my chaotic flag fly proud.
