Hi all!

A couple of months ago, we were contacted by a father who wanted to have some promotional materials of EDGE, to make a birthday present for his son Zias. Zias loves EDGE and he even built real-life versions of EDGE levels in LEGO.

To cut a long story short; unfortunately we didn't have any promotional materials, instead we invited Zias to come over to our office so he could build an EDGE level under the watchful eye of our designer Hessel. The end result is now part of the latest update of EDGE on Steam!

Product Release - Valve
Lone Survivor is Now Available on Steam and 20% off until Friday, April 27th 10AM PST.

In this psychological survival adventure, the masked protagonist must escape from a city ravaged by disease, by any means necessary. Starving and exhausted, he has begun to question how much of what he sees is even real.

A new kind of adventure where the choice of how to survive is up to you. Sneak through without firing a single shot, or kill everything in your path. Eat and sleep well, or resort to drugs to keep going. Search for survivors, or try to escape the city alone. Look after your mental health, or descend into madness. Lone Survivor is a game where your choices genuinely matter.

Hi all,

Five Dutch game developers, including Vanguard Games, Grendel Games, Vlambeer and Ronimo Games and Two Tribes, have teamed up to bring you some love in the form of an awesome deal! From amongst the windmills of the Dutch grasslands, they bring you the "From Holland with Love" pack:

http://store.steampowered.com/sub/14092

The bundle contains a total of seven great games, including

Diamond Dan (Grendel Games)
Greed Corp (Vanguard Games)
Swords & Soldiers HD (Ronimo)
Serious Sam - The Random Encounter (Vlambeer)
Toki Tori (Two Tribes)
RUSH (Two Tribes)
EDGE (Two Tribes/Mobigame)

The combined price of these games is over $50, but the pack is offered at only $9.99, £7.99, or €8,99. That's cheaper than a handful of tulips! As an added bonus, users who already have one of these games registered to their account will be able to gift their extra copy to a friend.

The bundle is available through Steam and will remain on offer until Thursday April 12th, 4PM Pacific Time. So put on your sturdy wooden shoes - it's time to go Dutch!

Cheers,

Why You Cried While Playing JourneyPeople have a hard time talking on the internet about crying. Crying is a vulnerable enough act on its own that taking the time to write about it just seems over the top! When we talk about games like Journey, we usually talk about how "the room got dusty," or we "got something in our eye."



Edge Magazine editor Jason Killingsworth has a theory as to why Journey has kicked up so much dust in so many rooms over the last few weeks—it's the jumping.




The jumping is where Journey breaks your heart. The jumping is why many players cried, even if they couldn't pinpoint the cause. The jumping is the tiny, insignificant-looking wingnut holding Journey together, without which it would collapse into a heap of exquisitely airbrushed scrap metal. It's not Thatgamecompany's token nod to classic videogame interactions, settled on after staring blankly at an empty white board for two hours, unable to come up with anything more engaging to have players do. It's not just a tool for poking around its stunning vistas and drinking in the sights.




Killingsworth says that he initially didn't understand people's desire to play Journey for a third, fourth, or fifth time. But now that he's thought about the jumping, he gets it—it's about weightlessness, it's about the incredible, near-perfect feeling of jumping in the game. "Jumping affects the emotional tenor of gameplay in the same way a well-timed key change does a pop song."



Crucially, it's not about flying—it's about jumping. "We don't want to KO gravity; we simply enjoy head-butting it in the nose repeatedly," Killingsworth writes, citing other not-quite-flight abilities in Just Cause 2 (yes!) and Batman: Arkham City.



I like flight as much as the next guy, but I think Killingsworth is on to something here. Without the gravity, the jump means less. And my fondest memories of Journey involve sliding down the sand with the sun in my eyes, shooting up the edge of a ramp, and jumping, jumping, jumping.
