Simon The Sorcerer Origins: New trailer features exclusive scenes and partnerships - including pop legend Rick Astley

Simon the Sorcerer Origins is an all-Italian project that immediately won over Simon and Mike Woodroffe, the original creators of Simon the Sorcerer, who enthusiastically welcomed the team’s desire to create the adventures of the young sorcerer in a nostalgic, yet modern game.

The overview trailer includes brand new gameplay scenes featuring British actor Chris Barrie, the original voice actor of the main character, and music from the soundtrack composed by Mason Fisher.

Simon the Sorcerer Origins is being lovingly created by a team of 80 professionals, dedicated to delivering a new adventure worthy of continuing the Simon the Sorcerer legacy with 15,000 hand-drawn frames.

Finally, the participation of pop legend Rick Astley, with his hit Together Forever, is just one of the many reasons Simon the Sorcerer Origins is one of the most anticipated releases of the year

Wether you're a long-time fan or new to the series, get ready for an experience filled with enchanting visuals, intriguing characters, and the iconic wit that made Simon a legend

Simon The Sorcerer Origins will launch on Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S, PS4/5, Nintendo Switch, and PC in 2024.

BECK Interactive Aims To Boost Early-Stage Video Game Developers

BECK Interactive Aims To Boost Early-Stage Video Game Developers
Published by: BigJ on Thursday, May 23, 2024
Tagged: Gaming, Xbox One,

Under the experienced leadership of Alex Beck, Beck Interactive Partners (BIP) has launched with a vision to transform the gaming industry's marketing and influencer dynamics. BIP is dedicated to establishing true partnerships between game development innovators, influential content creators, and strategic publishers.

BECK Interactive Partners Unveils New Launch Aimed at Boosting Early-Stage Game Developers

Having served as the former Director of the Loaded Games Team, the largest influencer management firm on Twitch, Beck has orchestrated over 500 creator deals, facilitated collaboration with over 50 game publishers, and has deployed over 17.5 million USD in budget for creator collaborations with game studios worldwide.

Beck's vision involves a framework aimed at forging sustainable and reciprocal relationships between studios and influencers, with a special focus on emerging studios and games in the early stages of development. Utilizing a proprietary dataset, BIP strategically connects their studio clients with top-tier influencers. This involvement amplifies the game's development journey, leveraging creators' vast, dedicated audiences across social platforms. This engagement boosts public interest and enthusiasm, generating momentum as the game nears its launch.

This revenue-sharing partnership not only bolsters the game's appeal and brings attention to the studio, but enables creators to invest in projects they are truly passionate about. This cultivates an environment that attracts great publishers, who come prepared to offer favorable deals, supporting the collective success of all parties involved.

Through this model, BIP not only addresses the challenge of discoverability in a deeply saturated market, but throws into focus the maturation of creators, and their largely untapped potential in-game marketing.

"The influencer ecosystem has shifted," says Beck. "It’s not the wild west anymore. A rapidly growing number of today’s creators are brand-conscious professionals seeking to be a positive force in gaming. They want to be advocates and partners, curating relationships with studios where they aren’t simply contracted to play and stream a studio’s game for short-term gain, but invest personally in its long-term success. BIP exists to facilitate these relationships, ensuring creators are foundationally matched with studio clients, so their go-to-market roadmap is paved with the best publishing agreements possible.”

While BIP can easily support the needs of established studios, Beck seeks to distinguish his firm with a mission to elevate the games of emerging indie developers with limited resources.

Concludes Beck, "With so many studio closures and games lost to cancellation in recent years, navigating our industry is already daunting. Much like the '90s ushered in a golden era of independent movies when the film industry was struggling, I believe indie games can play a similar revitalizing role for us while our industry finds its footing, and beyond. However, for that to happen, these games need to be seen. Our goal is to ensure that the studios we represent, regardless of development team size or resources, have every opportunity for success and recognition in a crowded marketplace. We intend to be the one-stop, industry solution that ensures the next Lethal Company doesn’t slip through the cracks because there was nobody there to evangelize on its behalf."

BIP will announce its first studio/creator partnership in the coming weeks.
