Back in 2009, ChAIR Entertainment blew everyone away with their 2.5D homage to Super Metroid, Shadow Complex. Going beyond a simple side-scrolling experience, Shadow Complex featured action packed shooting and creative platforming. The title garnered accolades and rave reviews as an Xbox 360 Arcade exclusive. Now, though, everyone gets to experience ChAIR's first big title thanks to the new release of Shadow Complex: Remastered on PC, Mac, PS4, and Xbox One.

As you've probably suspected from the title, though, ChAIR is taking a unique marketing approach to the game's PC/Mac release. For the entire length of December, Shadow Complex: Remastered's DRM free, standalone PC/Mac release is available for free. You don't need Steam, or Origin to play it, either. Just go right here, click "Download Now," and you've got yourself a copy of one of last-gen's biggest downloadable games.

This is the second time this year ChAIR has released some major free content on PC, previously giving out all their royalty-free assets for the cancelled Infinity Blade: Dungeons for use in Unreal 4. Personally speaking, I approve, and here's hoping more developers take a note from ChAIR's savvy marketing strategy.

J. J. Abrams' new spy game collaboration with Chair Entertainment is a title and not much else yet Wed, 11 Nov 2015 18:39:33 -0500 Michael Falero

Apparently J.J. Abrams isn't satisfied by teasing the Internet with just Star Wars: The Force Awakens clips.

The writer, TV show creator, and director released a video of an interview he did with Donald Mustard, of Chair Entertainment (the maker of the Infinity Blade series). The video announces a 2016 spy game that Abrams and the developer are collaborating on, called Spyjinx.

The announcement comes up very, very short on details. Chair's Donald Mustard throws out a smattering of genre terms when asked what sort of game it is, saying:

A unique blend action strategy game mixed with...dynamic world building with a healthy dose of RPG character development..."

It's a vague answer, even for an early announcement. The lack of images or overarching story contours in the video underline how little Mustard gives with the answer.

It's a vague answer, even for an early announcement. The lack of images or overarching story contours in the video underline how little Mustard gives with the answer.

Abrams tries to head off this concern by essentially saying that Spyjinx will transcend normal genre definitions.

It will really need to be will be by what it is, as opposed to saying "it's exactly like that".

Much easier said than done, but occasionally games do transcend simple genre definitions. The question at hand is whether Abrams' storytelling talent, combined with Chair's knowledge of video game development, can give us a truly unique title.

Abrams and Mustard seem to think yes, and they also seem to believe that fans of Abrams will follow a game they know nothing about because his name is attached to it.

For now, what we do know from the video is that the Spyjinx beta will be coming out in 2016, for PC and mobile.

[Rumor] Infinity Blade May Be Coming to China as a Kinect Game Mon, 24 Nov 2014 18:08:15 -0500 Adam Koziol

The popular iPhone title Infinity Blade might be being ported to the Xbox One for a Chinese release. Tencent, a huge Chinese publisher, has been teasing the game on its official site with various pictures. Despite not using the name Infinity Blade itself, the images use characters and weapons that would fit right in with the fighting game.

Some of the images show players slicing through their TVs and another shows a very old Xbox logo. It's therefore not hard to guess that Infinity Blade will use Kinect on Xbox One. Strangely, the game was originally planned as a Kinect title for the Xbox 360 until development was switched to the iPhone.

Created by Chair and Epic Games, Infinity Blade was intended to be a demonstration of what Epic's Unreal Engine 3 could achieve on the Apple smartphone. Upon release, Infinity Blade was the fastest selling app in the history of iOS and it spawned two sequels.

Overall, we think the rumour is pretty reliable. It makes sense for Tencent to publish Infinity Blade as they own 40% of Epic Games. The promotional images for the title promise that all we be revealed this Friday on November 28, the same day as Tencent's Game Carnival in Shanghai.

We'll bring you more on this story as it unfolds so be sure to stay tuned to for more information.
