1，Animoca Brands has signed a deal with Asian gaming giant Tencent to distribute the Armies of Dragons tower defense game in Asia on the WeChat social messenger platform.
Asia Pacific is considered the world’s largest market for the mobile game industry. In 2014, the region’s 760 million mobile gamers generated $13.6 billion in revenue, accounting for 55 percent of the global mobile gaming market, according to the 2015 Global Mobile Game Industry Whitebook.
The deal is an interesting experiment, as Animoca Brands had previously launched Armies of Dragons last year and got 750,000 downloads. Now it’s angling for more — and since Tencent is the world’s largest gaming company and happens to own WeChat, which has 600 million users across Asia, this should result in more players for its game.
Under the deal, Animoca Brands will use Tencent to exclusively distribute its mobile game in markets such as Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, and Thailand. WeChat has had more than a billion downloads to date, and it added 50 million users last quarter. And since players in Asia download games through third-parties such as chat apps more than they do from app stores, it’s important for publishers to be on these platforms.（source：venturebeat.com ）
2，The latest Hitman game was due for release on December 8, but Io-Interactive has now announced the creepy bald guy isn’t going to show up on shelves until March 2016. It’s promised disappointed fans more launch content as a result of the decision.
“These few extra months will mean we can add more to the launch content of the game, more than we had originally planned, and then follow with a tighter frequency of updates, which ultimately will create a better game for everyone. And in the end, that’s what we’re all looking for,” it said in a statement.
“Moving a launch date is never an easy decision, we know it’s frustrating to have to wait a bit longer for the game, but we truly believe it will mean we can deliver a better launch and overall experience.”
The last console title in the franchise, Hitman: Absolution, was released on November 20, 2012.（source：gamesindustry.biz ）
3，Well before John Romero was known for his work at id Software designing DooM [$4.99], he made a game called Dangerous Dave, a platformer initially created for a magazine called UpTime, meant to show off GraBASIC and an article he wrote about it. It led to a whole series of Dangerous Dave games across multiple platforms, inspired Commander Keen, and ultimately laid the groundwork for id Software to create Wolfenstein 3D and DooM. In case you haven’t noticed, first-person shooters are still a pretty popular genre, and those games were probably the spearheads that made the genre a lasting force in the gaming world. But Romero hasn’t forgotten about Dangerous Dave. In fact, he’s porting the game to iOS, and it’s apparently coming out soon:

The Dangerous Dave port has been in the works for a while, but the game is just now nearing its conclusion, and iOS users will be able to play a piece of gaming history for themselves on their mobile devices, albeit in a touchscreen-friendly form with updated graphics. This one has been in the works since at least December 2014, and there’s the promise of more Romero retro games coming. Thanks to DeNappa on our forums for the tip!（source：toucharcade.com ）
