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.

    Arif Zahir Replaces Mike Henry as Cleveland Brown on Family Guy

    Arif Zahir Replaces Mike Henry as Cleveland Brown on Family Guy According to Deadline, YouTube star Arif Zahir will be replacing Mike Henry as Cleveland Brown on Fox’s animated series Family Guy after Henry announced in June that he would be stepping down from the role. Henry, who is white, has voiced the character since the show premiered in 1999, but chose to step away from the role saying, “I love this character, but persons of color should play characters of color.” RELATED: Family Guy & Bob’s Burgers Get Two-Season Renewals at Fox Zahir will start voicing Cleveland for Family Guy’s 19th season, which is now beginning production. Episodes had already been completed or were in “advanced stages of animation” for Season 18 when Henry exited the role, meaning he will still voice the character for Season 18 before Zahir takes over for the following season. Henry will remain a series regular on Family Guy, voicing Bruce the Performance Artist, Herbert the Pedophile, and other roles. “I welcome Arif to the Family Guy team,” Henry said. “Arif’s vocal talent is obvious, but his understanding of Cleveland and his respect for the character give me confidence that he is in the right hands. I look forward to getting to know Arif and working with him to make sure Cleveland stays every bit as awesome as he has always been.” Zahir is partly known for his Cleveland Brown impersonations from his YouTube Channel that has garnered millions of views. “Firstly, I’m eternally grateful to have received this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” Zahir said. “When I heard that Mike Henry was stepping down from the role of Cleveland Brown — my favorite cartoon character of all time — I was shocked and saddened, assuming we’d never see him again. When I learned I would get to take over the role? Overabundant gratitude. To Mike, you created something truly special, and I promise I will do my absolute best to honor your legacy. To Rich Appel, Alec Sulkin, and Seth MacFarlane, thank you for this incredible gift. And to the millions of fans who love this show, I promise not to let you down.” RELATED: Liv Tyler Exits Fox’s 9-1-1: Lone Star Ahead of Season 2 Along with Bob’s Burgers, Family Guy was recently picked up by the network for two more seasons, taking the animated series to its 20th season. Family Guy was created and is executive produced by Seth MacFarlane. Rich Appel and Alec Sulkin serve as executive producers and showrunners on the animated series, with Steve Callaghan, Tom Devanney, Danny Smith, Kara Vallow, Mark Hentemann, and Patrick Meighan also serving as executive producers. The show is set to return for Season 18 on Sunday with its 350th episode.
