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.

    Watched at Home: Top 20 Streaming Films for the Week of October 9

    Welcome fellow couch potatoes to another edition of Watched at Home where we look back and judge your viewing choices over the last week! As it turns out, you guys are clearly itching for Halloween and helped propel four trick or treat classics into The Digital Entertainment Group’s Top 20. Let’s do this thing!

    RELATED: October 13 Blu-ray, Digital and DVD Releases

    Our last list saw Halloween favorites such as Hocus Pocus, Beetlejuice and The Nightmare Before Christmas enter the arena with the former leaping to No. 4 and the remaining pair occupying the No. 11 and No. 16 spots, respectively. This week, Hocus Pocus swooped all the way to No. 2 on the list (just behind three-week champ Ava) while Beetlejuice and Nightmare crept up to No. 8 and No. 14. Also, Michael Myers decided to join the fun via 2018’s Halloween, which made its debut at No. 19 on the list with plenty of time to eventually slice its way into the Top 10 by month’s end.

    Meanwhile, new non-Halloween entries to the chart include Star Trek: Picard Season 1, the documentary The Phenomenon, the romantic comedy Then Came You, and the Kodi Smit-McPhee sci-fi thriller 2067. This is probably a good time to plug our recent interview with Smit-McPhee, who discussed his role in 2067 and even took some time to talk about his stint as Nightcrawler in the X-Men franchise.

    Otherwise, the list remained largely unchanged from last week save for a few jumps here and there. It’ll be interesting to see which other Halloween classics you guys take part in over the next few weeks.
