Miniclip and Ndemic Creations have announced that the hit indie title Plague, Inc. will release on Android this month. The Android version will see a dramatic increase in the speed of the porting process, and the new tech will allow Plague Inc. to be updated simultaneously with the iOS version that uses a single code base to streamline the update process.

From the Press Release
Miniclip today announced that it entered into an agreement with Ndemic Creations to exclusively bring the thriving and critically acclaimed iOS game, Plague Inc., to Android devices this month. Since its launch on iOS, Plague Inc. has rapidly developed a strong, enthusiastic following. Miniclip is supporting the game’s success with its mobile distribution resources and proprietary X-Port Genie technology, which dramatically accelerates the porting time from iOS games to the Android platform.

“Plague Inc. has been one of the biggest mobile indie successes of 2012. It is an extraordinary game that fits in perfectly with our current diverse library of mobile games, and through our technology, we can continue Plague Inc.’s phenomenal iOS success by quickly bringing it to Android in just a few weeks when it normally takes months,” said Sergio Varanda, head of Miniclip Mobile Division. “Ndemic’s decision to partner with Miniclip to bring its game to Android demonstrates the amazing value that Miniclip can bring to indie game developers who wish to quickly and cost effectively distribute their iOS games on Android.“

“Miniclip’s technology and industry expertise made them the right partner to bring Plague Inc. to Android,” said James Vaughan, founder and CEO of Ndemic Creations. “Plague Inc. captivated iOS players earlier this year, performing beyond expectations, and we now expect big results for the game on Android.”

The Android version of Plague Inc. will deliver the same high quality, strategic gameplay that is available in the iPhone and iPad versions as players are asked to design and master the most lethal and effective plague possible to bring an end to humankind.

Miniclip’s powerful and revolutionary X-Port Genie technology allows the Android version of Plague Inc. to be updated simultaneously along with the iOS version using a single code base which streamlines the update process for developers and benefits players with faster access to all the same content updates in development.

Plague Inc. is Ndemic Creations’ first game and will be Miniclip’s 16th Android title and 44th overall mobile game released since the launch of the company’s successful Mobile Division in August 2010.

Did You Catch Chucky and King Kong’s Cameo in the Trailer For Steven Spielberg’s New Movie?

Published

on

You may remember a few months back there was a kick-ass trailer for Steven Spielberg’s new action-adventure flick Ready Player One that sported a quick glimpse of not only Freddy Krueger, but Stephen King’s Christine as well.

If those slick horror nods weren’t enough for you, today we have the new trailer for the film and guess who shows up? Yep, you guess it (from the headline) but Mr. Charles Lee Ray lends a helping knife to a battle, and the king of the jungle, Kong himself!

Very cool.

The cameos in the trailer is one of those “blink-and-you’ll-miss-it” things, but let’s hope he has a bit more screentime in the actual movie. By the way, is Ready Player One reminding anyone else of the “Imagination Land” episode(s) of “South Park”…?

You can check out the trailer below and then make sure to let us know what you think!

The film is directed by Steven Spielberg, based on the novel by Ernie Cline, and stars Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn, Simon Pegg, Mark Rylance, T.J. Miller, Hannah John-Kamen, and Letitia Wright.

Ready Player One hits theaters March 30, 2018.

Synopsis:

In the near future, outcast teenager Wade Watts escapes from his bleak surroundings by logging in to the OASIS, a globally networked virtual utopia where users can lead idyllic alternate lives. When the eccentric billionaire who created the OASIS dies, he offers up his vast fortune as the prize in an elaborate treasure hunt. Along with gamers from around the world, Wade joins the adventure, and quickly finds himself pitted against powerful corporate foes and other ruthless competitors who will do anything, in the oasis or the real world, to reach the treasure first.

on

Earlier today we let you know Jordan Peele’s horror-thriller Get Out scored nods at this year’s Golden Globes for Best Motion Picture and Best Actor – both in the Comedy category.

Strange.

That said, another film from our beloved genre is getting some love in the form of writer-director Guillermo del Toro’s new creature feature The Shape of Water.

The film was given nominations in a staggering 7 categories including Best Motion Picture – Drama, Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama for Sally Hawkins, Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in any Motion Picture for Octavia Spencer, and Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in any Motion Picture for Richard Jenkins.

Del Toro also scored nods for his work as director and co-screenwriter for the film.

You can check out the full list of nominations right HERE.

The film is directed by Guillermo del Toro, written by Vanessa Taylor and del Toro, and stars Sally Hawkins, Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, Michael Stulbarg, and Doug Jones.

The Shape of Water is currently playing in theaters.

Synopsis:
In the hidden high-security government laboratory where she works, lonely Elisa (Sally Hawkins) is trapped in a life of silence and isolation. Elisa’s life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer) discover a secret classified experiment.

Get Out Scores Golden Globe Nominations… as a Comedy

Published

on

It was a few weeks back now when we let you guys in on the rather puzzling news that the Golden Globes was considering Jordan Peele horror-thriller Get Out as a nominee…

As a comedy.

As strange as that news was, it seems it wasn’t a joke in its own right as Jordan Peele’s Get Out has scored a nomination for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy. The news broke this morning with the full release of this year’s nominations via EW.

You can check out the full list HERE.

One cool thing is that actor Daniel Kaluuya also scored a nod for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – again, Musical or Comedy. Sad and borderline ridiculous that Peele didn’t score nods as director OR screenwriter. For shame, Golden Globes.

What do you think of this news? Are you just glad Get Out got SOME love from this year’s Gloden Globes, or could you care less about awards season? Let us know below!

Synopsis:
Now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams), have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy and Dean. At first, Chris reads the family’s overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter’s interracial relationship; but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he could never have imagined.
