09/01/2016 - Telltale Walking Dead Returns This November
'The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series - A New Frontier' Premieres This November

Third Full Season in Critically-Acclaimed Series Premieres This November
 
Fellow Survivors,

During our panel at PAX West today, Telltale took the stage to deliver some additional details surrounding the highly-anticipated third season of  The Walking Dead.

Since its unveiling at E3 in June, the title and release window for the next season of the series have been tightly under wraps. Today, we can announce that 'The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series - A New Frontier'  will be premiering this November on consoles, PC/Mac, and mobile platforms. The series will also be available for purchase on a special 'Season Pass Disc' for consoles, which will include the premiere episode for the third season, as well as access to all subsequent episodes in the five episode season for download as they become available.

"This third new season will serve as both a continuation of what's come before in our story, as well as an all-new beginning set nearly four years after the outbreak events of Season One,"  said Kevin Bruner, Co-Founder and CEO of Telltale Games.  "As a harrowing and horrific drama, 'A New Frontier' will explore beyond what it means to survive in a world ravaged by the undead, and will see our characters confronting the new rules of order and justice in a land being brutally reclaimed and rediscovered by what's left of humanity itself."

Players will take control of series newcomer Javier, a man struggling to keep his family together in the new world, while also playing as Clementine, now a teenage survivor holding secrets of her past while fighting to protect family of her own.

"When we began this series, we explored what it meant to protect a character like Clementine at all costs,"  said Kevin Boyle, Executive Producer on the series.  "Years later, meeting her for the first time, Javier will begin to unravel the mystery of who Clementine has become, as her story intersects with his - both of them still driven by the things they value most long after society's collapse."


'The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series - A New Frontier' will be premiering this November. For more news and information on the third season, stay tuned to telltale.com, follow @telltalegames on twitter, and on follow our page on Facebook.com/TheWalkingDeadGame.

08/31/2016 - RunGunJumpGun Launches on PC and Mac
Gambitious Digital Entertainment Launches ThirtyThree’s Electrifying Action-Platformer RunGunJumpGun on Windows PC and Mac


AMSTERDAM – Aug. 31, 2016 - Gambitious Digital Entertainment and independent developer ThirtyThree have released the side-scrolling retro runner-platformer RunGunJumpGun. A neon fever dream of action inspired by the precision and speed of Downwell, movement of Flappy Bird and attitude of Hotline Miami, this ruthlessly challenging experience thrusts players into the jaws of death at breakneck velocity.

Armed with a massive, gravity-defying gun, players can only hope to survive RunGunJumpGun by mastering the game’s simple, two-button controls: one to explode upward in flight, the other to blast forward through obstacles. There are over 120 levels of meticulously merciless mayhem, with heart-pounding dangers and elusive pickups that demand fast thinking and reflexes to conquer. A bonus marathon mode lets players prove themselves in the ultimate test of skill against the world on the global leaderboards.

Set in a warped space-opera universe with bizarre, larger-than-life characters, RunGunJumpGun features blazing visuals, hyperkinetic sound design and a pulsing soundtrack, as well as key art from El Huervo, the creator of the distinctive cover art for Hotline Miami.

RunGunJumpGun is now available on Windows PC and Mac for $7.99 via Steam, The Humble Store, Green Man Gaming and the Mac App Store. A special edition of the game featuring its thumping digital soundtrack, a desktop wallpaper and high-resolution key art is also available for $9.99.

In addition, Gambitious Digital Entertainment has partnered with publisher Devolver Digital to offer a 25% discount for RunGunJumpGun on Steam to players who own either Downwell, Xeodrifter™, Hotline Miami or Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number on Steam (discount may only be applied once; offer valid until Oct. 1, 2016).
