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.

    James Caan Claims a Dispute Between Will Jon and Ferrell Favreau Kept Elf 2 From Happening

    James Caan Claims a Dispute Between Will Ferrell and Jon Favreau Kept Elf 2 From Happening Everyone loves Elf. It’s a Christmas classic that people have enjoyed since its debut back in 2003. One would expect that a film that earned $220 million at the box office would lead to more films. Except, Elf 2 never happened and actor James Caan, who played Walter in the film, thinks he knows why. RELATED: Tony Gilroy Steps Down from Directing Cassian Andor Series “We were gonna do it and I thought, ‘Oh my god, I finally got a franchise movie, I could make some money, let my kids do what the hell they want to do.’ And the director and Will didn’t get along very well,” Caan told the Bull & Fox radio show (via Yahoo.) “So, Will wanted to do it, he didn’t want the director, and he had it in his contract, it was one of those things.” That’s a shame as Elf remains one of those must-watch Christmas flicks that simultaneously spreads Christmas cheer (for all to hear) and makes people laugh. It’s also a little weird to hear how such a production could lead to bad blood as everyone involved looks as if they’re having a blast. It is what it is, but maybe one day Ferrell and Favreau can bury the hatchet and give us more Buddy the Elf adventures. RELATED: Charlie Brown Gets Scary in New Halloween Raid71 Prints Here’s the official synopsis for Elf, in case you haven’t seen it: Buddy (Will Ferrell) was accidentally transported to the North Pole as a toddler and raised to adulthood among Santa’s elves. Unable to shake the feeling that he doesn’t fit in, the adult Buddy travels to New York, in full elf uniform, in search of his real father. As it happens, this is Walter Hobbs (James Caan), a cynical businessman. After a DNA test proves this, Walter reluctantly attempts to start a relationship with the childlike Buddy with increasingly chaotic results.
