GameTap Adds THQ Titles

Cow Swing

“Swing, swing, suicidal steer.”

I read on Video Game News this morning that GameTap is adding a ton of cool new titles to their service – these coming from THQ. The article provides full details:

GameTap announced today the signing of a partnership with THQ. This deal will give the broadband entertainment network company access to THQ’s PC titles for digital download, with certain titles available for free play on GameTap’s ad-supported website. The titles included in this agreement include Company of Heroes, Supreme Commander, Titan Quest, Saints Row 2, PuzzleQuest and S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl.

To read more about these exciting additions, head over the Video Game News.

GameTap’s quality, offering, and profile is certainly increasing day by day. And with only 6 days until the launch of Grimm, these could prove to be momentous times for the innovative service. As I’ve said before, I think gamers and game developers alike have many reasons to applaud and support digital download publishers like GT.

We here at Spicy Horse feel a huge amount of gratitude for GameTap (and Ricardo Sanchez in particular) for breathing life into our studio. The Grimm development has given us a chance to not only build a cool game, but to establish a first-class studio in China. Only a few more days… and we’ll see if all our hard work and creativity pays off. Hope you’ll join us in finding out. Be sure to check out the Spicy Horse Grimm Site and official GameTap Grimm Site for more information and news!

These websites will update weekly, keeping track of weekly episode releases, community events, and more.

Kotaku: Grimm’s “Clever, fun, twisted”

Butcher Portrait

Butchered? Not this piggy!!

Being avid readers of Kotaku and well aware of their tendency towards critical butchering, it was with bated breath and whisp’ring humbleness we awaited their hands on preview of Grimm Episode 1. Well, the preview is in… and the response is… GOOD!

Here’s a snippet from the article:

Grimm has a great, simple graphical style but don’t let that make you think it’s a game for kids. This is a very twisted world and the game will have an M rating. The humor is quite black and may have some players scratching their heads but those of you with a sick sense of humor will absolutely love it. The keyboard and mouse controls are simple and easy to use but if you tend towards the controller, you can use any USB controller at your disposal (including the 360’s). Each episode is short and can be completed straight through in about 30 minutes, but there are plenty of reasons to go back and replay the levels including secret items, power-ups, beating your time and the simple pleasure of seeing everything turn scary.

I’m glad to see Grimm continuing to receive praise in previews. The development team here in Shanghai is also quite happy – deservedly so. They’ve put an amazing amount of creativity and passion into the project, and it shows. Grimm production has been a lot of fun, and made all the better by the fact that the game is finding a happy audience.

I’m just happy our piggy Grimm didn’t get the chop!
