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.

    Warner Bros. and Spotify Team Up for Batman Unburied Scripted Podcast

    Warner Bros. and Spotify Team Up For Batman Unburied Scripted Podcast Back in June, Warner Bros. and Spotify unveiled a deal to create DC scripted podcasts. Now, the first-ever scripted Spotify podcast has been revealed. Spotify has announced that Batman Unburied will be released in 2021. The new podcast will “explore the darker aspects of Bruce Wayne’s psychology.” The Dark Knight trilogy co-writer, David S. Goyer, wrote the story for Batman Unburied and will executive produce the podcast. “I’ve been a fan of narrative podcasts for some time and was looking for the right story — returning to Batman seems like the perfect opportunity,” said Goyer in a statement. “We’ll also be using the unique advantages of audio to dig into the more nightmarish members of the Dark Knight’s Rogues Gallery.” Additionally, Goyer’s production company, Phantom Four, is teaming up with Warner Bros.’ Blue Ribbon Content to produce the podcast. However, Spotify hasn’t announced any additional writers yet. Spotify’s Dawn Ostroff also shared a statement about Goyer’s involvement with the new Batman podcast. “David Goyer is an exceptional talent, and we can think of no better leader to leverage the infinite possibilities of podcasting to bring the nearly 300 million Spotify users around the world a Batman saga for the ages.” More DC scripted podcasts are also likely to follow Batman Unburied in 2021.

    Shudder Announces Return of Eli Roth’s History of Horror: Uncut

    Shudder announces return of Eli Roth’s History of Horror: Uncut With a second season of the TV series on the way, Shudder has announced the return date for the second season of its companion podcast Eli Roth’s History of Horror: Uncut, whose first two episodes are available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and other podcast platforms now! RELATED: Eli Roth’s History of Horror Season 2 Teaser Previews October Return An extended audio companion to the television series AMC Visionaries: Eli Roth’s History of Horror, whose new season premieres on AMC on October 10, the Uncut podcast offers listeners hours of never-before-heard, candid conversations with horror luminaries featured in the show.  The first two episodes showcase in-depth discussions with Megan Fox, whose 2009 film Jennifer’s Body was met with hostility upon release but has since been lauded as modern classic, and Bill Hader, who offers new perspective on his role as the adult Richie Tozier in It Chapter Two. “The reaction to season one was beyond my wildest expectations,” Roth said in a statement. “We became a top five podcast as soon as we debuted, and it shows the overwhelming excitement from the fans to hear these incredible stories directly from the artists. On the TV show, we have to condense everyone into one hour but on the podcast, we can really take our time, hear the full conversation and learn so much more. The stories they tell are fascinating and insightful and really make you see their work through a different lens. I’m so thankful to AMC and Shudder for letting us go much bigger with Season 2. These stories are for all time, and will be enjoyed by generations of fans for years to come.” Future episodes will feature actors Nancy Allen (Dressed to Kill) and Ken Foree (Dawn of the Dead), filmmakers Ari Aster (Hereditary), Roger Corman (The Masque of the Red Death), Mary Harron (American Psycho), Don Mancini (creator of the Child’s Play franchise), Barbara Muschietti (producer of the It films), Greg Nicotero (showrunner of Creepshow), André Øvredal (Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark), Eli Roth (Hostel), actor/director/FX master Tom Savini (Friday the 13th), Joel Schumacher (The Lost Boys) and Rob Zombie (3 from Hell).
