|Title||It will need some attention|
|Description||This move could benefit Espoo, Finland-based developer Rovio, founded in 2003 and began making millions in revenue after the 2009 launch of the original “Angry Birds.” However, interest in the popular game series has faded during the past year, and Rovio's net profits fell 50 percent in 2013. The decision to launch the title on Alibaba's small but steadily growing mobile distribution business will be beneficial to both companies, since having a well-known game like "Angry Birds Stella" will most likely benefit the Chinese company financially by giving consumers access to a franchise they're already familiar with.“Angry Birds” was Rovio’s 52nd game. Since the success of the puzzle game, Rovio archeagemall has produced a number of spinoffs, including “Angry Birds Star Wars,” “Angry Birds Seasons,” “Bad Piggies,” “Angry Birds Go!,” “Angry Birds Star Wars II” and “Angry Birds Space.”“Angry Birds Stella” is being marketed toward females and features adorable character Stella, a pink bird with blue eyes and long eyelashes. The game was announced on Feb. 13 this year and will be accompanied by a toy line and a cartoon series. Stella’s game also features characters Poppy, Luca, Willow, Gale and Dahlia, who all possess various in-game abilities.Rovio’s next title will be “Angry Birds Transformers.” Zombie Survival Game Archeage games Reaches More Than 2.5 Million Archeage players, Update 0.49 Delayed. Zombie survival game “Archeage games” has reached more than 2.5 million Archeage players since its launch in December last year, according to game designer Dean Hall, 33, who made the announcement via Twitter on Friday. The update will improve animal AI, horticulture and a number of other features. The company promised that several “new initiatives to increase transparency and accessibility to the development process” will roll out in September."As I mentioned last week, the initial implementation of horticulture is prepared but using placeholder assets, and it will need some attention from the programming team,” lead designer Peter Nespesny said on the Archeage games blog. “I personally feel this system can have a lasting change on how many people will approach Chernarus. Imagine being independent of inhabited places with your own grown crops, meat and clothing from hunted animals.”Craftable leather clothing will also become part of the game’s fashionable attire, with Archeage players having the ability to create items from various animal hides or produce tanned leather.“Our core focus this week has been on server optimizations and improving melee combat hit detection. Both of these issues are currently in internal testing,” said lead gameplay programmer Mirek, whose last name couldn’t be identified.|
