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.

    Dragon Age Inquisition's Skyhold Entirely Recreated In The Sims 4, Room By Room

    I haven’t exactly been subtle in my undying love for the Dragon Age franchise and since it’ll be quite a bit of time before we get more Dragon Age 4 news, I have to get my fix where I can. So when a friend of mine shared this incredible Dragon Age Inquisition recreation of Skyhold in The Sims 4? I just had to share. 

    Redditor user r/StarshinePrince took to the forums to share their creation and I’ll be honest; I was shocked. When I saw the title of the post of being a recreation, I expected it to be one frame of a building that looked similar to that of Skyhold. What I wasn’t expecting was a detailed recreation, even going room to room.

    Skyhold, for those that have not played the third game in the Dragon Age franchise, is an abandoned elven fortress discovered and used as the base of operations for the Inquisition. The Inquisition was founded to be a source of order after Thedas was thrust into chaos following the return of a seemingly immortal magister from Tevinter’s days of old. 

    This haven (but not Haven from the first part of the game) is massive and very intricate in its design, especially as the story progresses and rennovations are done. This Sims 4 player not only recreated the outside and its courtyard, but also the Inquisitor’s rooms, the rooms of Cullen (the game’s Commander of forces), Vivienne (a companion), Sera (a companion), and other various aspects of this particular location. Even the heraldy of the Throne Room is pretty evenly matched to the game itself. I can’t even build a halfway decent house in Sims using cheats, so it may just be me but this absolutely blew my mind. 

    No video of this creation yet, but it would be amazing to do a complete virtual tour! It just goes to show the incredibly creative power of The Sims 4 and also shows how passionate the Dragon Age community continues to be long after a title has launched!
