We’ve spotlighted the work of video game music artist Dale North here before. His latest work is the soundtrack for Marble Knights, a competitive brawler where all the fighters have giant round marbles for lower bodies and victory involves mastery of rolling physics and ricocheting off each other in just the right way. Marble Knights was developed by Wayforward, who always does good work, but unfortunately the game is currently exclusive to Apple Arcade.
Even though there’s no E3 this year, that didn’t stop Limited Run Games from holding their usual mega conference in a fake coliseum, with cheesy green screen effects aplenty. This year’s video was the longest ever, running over 40 minutes long and containing over thirty announcements.
Here’s some news that will make you shake your booty: you’ll be seeing Shantae in stores again soon.
Wayforward Technologies has been responsible for a lot of top-quality video gaming ever since they announced themselves to the world with Shantae on the GBC (though they released a couple games before that point). One of their high points was the Wii revival of the NES game A Boy And His Blob. The original was one of the more quirky NES offerings, and I can’t explain it better than my old friend Polas did many years ago.
Still skeptical about the idea of playing a video game on a smartwatch? Still laughing at the thought of a balding man waiting for a bus while tapping on his wrist and making weird grunt noises? Maybe that’ll be you soon, because Wayforward Technologies is getting into it. And that purple-haired woman sure looks familiar.
Wayforward, as promised, has unveiled some Shantae news…
The BloodRayne series has been one that has been poorly received by critics since its original incarnation. Can BloodRayne: Betrayal breathe new life in the series or is it destined for failure?
The guys at WayForward are teasing something…
