Have you noticed more and more gaming studios in Malaysia are contributing to big mainstream games, especially in the art department? Well, here’s a another one. Malaysian-based art studio Lemon Sky has been in the business in producing art for games and 3D animation. Games like Uncharted 4, Gears of War 4 and Dead Rising 4 had some contribution made from them. Their latest work is with Blizzard on the newly remastered StarCraft.
The post from their Facebook post has publicly announced their contribution to the remaster of the highly-respected RTS, with pictures of the credits screen of the folks involved with the project.

The upcoming expansion to the strategy game XCOM 2 will add a lot of new mechanics on top of the original game, but it will also add one more feature that barely has any effect for gameplay: a photo mode.
In response to how players have grown attached to their soldiers despite the chance to lose them thanks to permadeath, Firaxis is adding a feature to pose your soldiers for a propaganda poster. These posters will be seen inside of the Avenger, XCOM’s flying base, as well as on the ground as propaganda for the guerrilla resistance force. There’s tons of options to customise the perfect poster. Whether it’s to honour the recently deceased soldier from a [...]
Don’t just call it a hero shooter. The new open world shooter based in the Saints Row universe but not a Saints Row game Agents Of Mayhem is out now. Featuring 12 different characters with different abilities and personalities, assemble your team of three to take down the evil organisation LEGION.
The tone is loosely based in Saturday morning cartoons of yore, which explains the G.I. Joe-like assemble cast (and public service announcements) , just with more swearing in the mix.
If you’re in the mood for a fun mindless shooter it’s a solid game, though if you’re expecting an open world romp ala Saints Row this will prove disappointing. Reviews [...]

The remaster costs $14.99 USD (RM64.40) and still requires the download of the original game, now available for free here.
Last year we saw a Malaysian indie game became a breakout sensation. Sara Is Missing got a huge buzz for making a horror/thriller game all around the premise of a lost smart phone.
It looks like a few of the developers have now band under a new name, Kaigan Games. And they are now working on a spiritual successor to Sarah Is Missing titled SIMULACRA.
SIMULACRA will still be a horror game based around the interface of a smartphone. It’s time to peek into the device of someone else and explore what the person has kept inside, as well as interact with the contacts of the phone owner and unravel what happened to her.
You can check out the preview article from [...]
