The creative spirit behind the disturbing What Remains of Edith Finch

In Government, Science & Nature by Venture BeatLeave a Comment

Tech News Keywords:

Ian Dallas, creative director at game studio Giant Sparrow, has a knack for describing his games in a way that makes you want to play them. His company’s next title is What Remains of Edith Finch, a video game that is a collection of stories about 13 people on their last day of living. I saw a preview this week of this haunting tale, which is a melancholy title that is more like a ghost story than horror. I could be tough for Santa Monica, Calif.-based Giant Sparrow and its publisher Annapurna Interactive to get people to try such a game, which is disturbing. Please check out our GamesBeat Summit 2017 event coming May 1-2 on the inspiration between science fiction, tech, and games. …

YouTube’s Ad Problems Finally Blow Up in Google’s Face

Late last year, Israel-based entrepreneur Matan Uziel saw a notification he’d never seen before pop up on YouTube’s backend—the part of the site where creators upload their videos. “I saw a yellow dollar sign. At first I didn’t understand what it was,” Uziel says. “Then I moved my cursor over it. I saw it meant my video was not advertiser-friendly.” By then, Uziel had made and posted close to a dozen videos to a YouTube channel called Real Women Real Stories—women speaking frankly into a camera about their experiences of sexual abuse. The view counts on some of the videos had climbed into the thousands, qualifying them for pre-roll ads placed through YouTube’s advertising program. They were bringing Uziel and …

(Reuters) – Two spacewalking astronauts ventured outside the International Space Station on Friday for a 6-1/2-hour spacewalk, the first of three to prepare the orbiting laboratory for future commercial space taxis and to tackle maintenance chores, NASA TV showed. U.S. station commander Shane Kimbrough, 49, and French flight engineer Thomas Pesquet, 39, floated outside the station’s airlock as the $100 billion complex soared 250 miles (402 km) above Earth. Kimbrough, making his fifth spacewalk, first upgraded a computer relay box on the station’s central beam, then worked on a docking system for new spaceships in development by Boeing and Space Exploration Technologies, or SpaceX. The U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration is making the retrofits in the hope that private …

HOPEWELL JUNCTION, New Jersey (WABC) — There is a twist to a local officer’s race to put out a fire inside a house in New Jersey.

They flew about 620 miles to splash down in the Sea of Japan — some of them falling less than 200 miles from Japan’s northwest shore. The test launch escalated rising military tensions already heightened by ongoing US and South Korean military exercises.

MIDTOWN, Manhattan (WABC) — An Amtrak Acela train derailed as it was leaving Penn Station in New York City Friday morning, injuring three people and halting train service in and out of Manhattan. Amtrak Acela 2150 had just started to depart Penn Station, westbound out of the station, when the train suddenly stopped. The Amtrak train made contact with a New Jersey Transit train in the station. “As we were exiting the train, we were walking through the café car and two of the cars visibly shifted,” passenger Toby Knapp told Eyewitness News. “Something caused the car to derail in the station.” About 300 passengers were removed from the train. Three minor injuries are being treated at the scene. New …

Preview: What Remains of Edith Finch is a haunting tale of 13 deaths

In Gaming, Government, Healthcare by Venture BeatLeave a Comment

Tech News Keywords: , , ,

What Remains of Edith Finch is a video game that is a collection of stories about 13 people on their last day of living. It is a haunting tale, more like a ghost story than horror. And it is very creative. The challenge for the developer — Santa Monica, Calif.-based Giant Sparrow — is to get you to finish the game. Ian Dallas, the creative director at the game studio Giant Sparrow, showed me a preview of Giant Sparrow’s upcoming PlayStation 4 and PC game. The game from publisher Annapurna Interactive debuts for $20 on April 25. Dallas thinks of the game as a psychological ghost story, with a dark vision but not quite a horror story. “Edith’s own journey provides the spine of it,” …

Get out your old DVDs and Blu-Rays that are gathering dust at home. Walmart said Thursday that people can now use its Vudu app to convert their existing DVDs and Blu-Rays into digital movies that they can watch online. Vudu is Walmart’s video streaming service that it bought in 2010 for a reported $100 million. Unlike other online streaming services like Netflix or Amazon Prime, Vudo customers pay no monthly subscription fee, but can instead rent or buy individual titles to watch online. In order to convert disks into digital, Vudo users scan the barcodes on the DVD or Blue-Ray boxes with the Vudo apps, and then choose whether to convert the disks into standard or high-quality streaming files.

A group of hackers claims to have breached Apple’s iCloud platform and gained access to hundreds of millions of user accounts. If Apple doesn’t pay a ransom, the hackers say they will remotely wipe the accounts. The hackers, who call themselves the “Turkish Crime Family,” are asking for $75,000 worth of bitcoin or Ethereum, or $100,000 in iTunes gift cards, Motherboard reported on Wednesday. To encourage Apple to pay, the hackers are seeking publicity by sending screenshots of alleged emails between them and Apple’s security team to media outlets.
