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.

    Daft Punk’s Tron: Legacy Soundtrack Headed to Vinyl!

    Daft Punk’s Tron: Legacy Soundtrack Headed to Vinyl! One of the best things about Joseph Kosinski’s Tron: Legacy (aside from the stunning visuals) was that amazing electronic score by Daft Punk — a tremendous bit of rhythmic beats and synthesizers that continues to resonate to this day. As such, Mondo is teaming up with Walt Disney Records to release the score on vinyl to commemorate the film’s 10-year anniversary. RELATED: Amazon’s The Lord of the Rings Series Resumes Production in New Zealand “When we go to visit the offices at Disney Music once a year, and every time we go the team is very, very lovely and they go, ‘So what’s your dream list?’” Mo Shafeek, Creative Director, Music at Austin-based Mondo told Collider. “Tron was always on that list, particularly for my partner Spencer. He’s a huge Daft Punk fan and a huge fan of that score. We would always throw things out. Like for me it was Who Framed Roger Rabbit. And we got to do that. Once we did that it was like, ‘Tron Legacy please!’” The timing was actually just right for the project to work. “We asked at the right time. We started this back in January. We were just asking about it for years and this time it came together organically. And now we get to be in on the anniversary.” For this new edition, Shafeek went “back to the source,” which means Tron: Legacy “is a direct repressing of what was released on the original vinyl album, which did feature a full collection of bonus tracks.” The Mondo edition of Tron: Legacy comes with artwork by British illustrator Matt Taylor. RELATED: Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness Teaser Released for Netflix’s Original Horror… “The back cover has this spot-varnish where the dust has been wiped away, and the keyboard is glowing and it has the track-list, like the weird retro-future tech,” Shafeek said. “It had this whole story from the packaging perspective, where it’s a computer screen and you open it up and it’s this whole entire universe.” For more details on the soundtrack, visit the official Mondo site. Tron: Legacy Vinyl Edition Motion Picture Soundtrack will go on sale Wednesday at Noon CT/10 a.m. PT.
