  • News Dead Island: Game of the Year Edition Rises in June

    Ratings board reveals re-release

    We don’t mean to be snarky, but did Dead Island actually win any game of the year awards? Sure, the Techland title had some great ideas, but the execution was far too sloppy to grant it any gongs in our eyes. Still, that’s not stopped British ratings board, the BBFC, from listing a "Game of the Year"...

  • News Techland Trademarks Dead World

    Before Dead Island launched, developer Techland was committed to a life of good ideas and grotty execution

    Both nail'd and Call Of Juarez: The Cartel — Techland's other two releases this year — suffered from the same fate. But Dead Island was different; it had polish, and for the first time in the developer's history, it seemed to have a budget too. It wasn't going to take long before hints..

  • News Techland Working On Downloadable ATV Racer For Ubisoft

    Chances are you never played Techland's Nail'd

    We did. It was actually pretty alright. The game had an extreme sports edge to it which meant you spent more time flying through the air than actually driving on the ground.
