SEGA and The Creative Assembly have announced a partnership with Games Workshop that will allow them to develop Warhammer-themed video games.

Tim Heaton, the Studio Director at The Creative Assembly said, “With this year being our 25th anniversary it seems fitting for us to embark on such a dream project with such a well-established partner. The incredibly rich and detailed Warhammer world is something we grew up with, and has left an indelible imprint on us as both designers and gamers. We’ll be doing the Warhammer universe justice in a way that has never been attempted before. We’re bringing those 25 years of experience and expertise in extremely high-scoring games to bear, delivering a Warhammer experience that videogamers will absolutely love.”

An untitled Warhammer game will now be under development by The Creative Assembly along with Total War: Rome II and an untitled Alien game. The Creative Assembly have a lot of work on their hands!

There’s no word at this time what the motion sensor and touchscreen are used for but I’m guessing the motion sensor is used as an alternative control scheme (tilt to steer).

Wednesday, December 5th, 2012

Felik’s rather magnificent fangame Sonic Fusion has bitten the bullet and the final version of the game has been released for download.

You can download the game via this link.

Sonic Fusion was a really interesting blend of old school 2D Sonic platforming with a new school set of techniques like homing attacks and boosting. It also features a great mash-up of graphics sourced from various Sonic games like Sonic 3D Blast and Sonic Advance. You can watch a speedrun of the Fatal Factory stage below:

Video Spotlight: Cancelled Streets of Rage “Reimagining” Footage Leaks Online UPDATE

Wednesday, December 5th, 2012

UPDATE

A new version of the leaked Streets of Rage reimagining footage has been uploaded which now includes sound. The prototype footage features a playable game and is not pre-rendered.

Ruffian Games business and management chief Gary Liddon (who also uploaded this new video) has also revealed more about the game:

“It was something we built very rapidly and represents pre-pre-pre-pre (lots of pres) pre-Alpha quality. Even so it has a certain charm 🙂 What’s the story behind it all? Like a lot of developers we work on a lot of different prototypes, they’re just not usually shown in public. In this case an older version of the same video was leaked last week which came as a bit of a surprise if I’m honest. As it had no sound I thought there wouldn’t be any harm sharing a version with audio. Beyond that there’s not a lot more I can say unfortunately :)”

Sean Noonan has also chimed in to answer a question about why the game was cancelled. His response: “I don’t really have a solid answer to that :(”
