In REMEX’s upcoming gunless flight sim, airliners won’t be rare, they’ll be non-existent. Dedicated to reproducing the kind of thrilling low-tech aviation in which runways tend to be surrounded by timber and rocks rather than turf and signage, and bear rage is more likely to delay a flight than air rage, the commerce-laced Deadstick is the brainchild of a Brit called Chris Cheetham. Having done his stint at the coding coalface (Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Trivial Pursuit, Little Big Planet, Little Big Planet 2, Killzone HD, The Room…) Chris broke away, formed a studio, and embarked on something far more personal. Yesterday I persuaded him to take a break from physics tweaking and economy balancing and talk about that project and its origins. RPS: Is your knowledge of flight and flying machines purely theoretical? Chris: I have been drawn to aircraft/flying as far back as I can remember. This … [Read more...] about The Flare Path: Devoted to Deadstick

YER A WIZERD 'ARRY If only we could go back to a time when we weren’t all a bit embarrassed by the franchise, eh? Well, with video games, you can! Picture it: it’s 2004. Things haven’t all gone terribly wrong yet. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is in the cinema, the best Harry Potter film yet (and to this day, if you ask me). And it has a video game tie-in! The first couple of HP games (HP not for the sauce, although please tell me immediately if there is a HP Sauce branded series of video games) weren’t half bad, although hindsight is a hell of a drug. But the Prisoner of Azkaban game was the first one that made the castle feel like an actual place. You could run around and fire spells all over the place — and there were loads of secret passages and rooms to find, just like real Hogwarts. Although in virtual Hogwarts they mostly just have a Chocolate Frog collectible card in them. Best of all was that I could go down into the grounds and go … [Read more...] about Have You Played… Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban?
J. K. Rowling loves building the magical lore of her wizarding world so it makes sense that there are a number of Harry Potter Easter eggs hidden away in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. From the more obvious references that most Potter fans would spot (such as Professor McGonagall’s cameo), to the blink-and-you’ll miss it magical Easter eggs (did you spot the Philosopher's Stone?), we’ve rounded up all the Harry Potter Easter eggs we spotted in Fantastic Beasts 2. Before I continue, it's worth saying that here be spoilers for the beginning, middle, and end of the latest entry in the Fantastic Beasts series. Unless you are armed with an excellent Obliviate spell to delete your memory, you'll want to wait until after you see the movie to read these Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald Easter eggs. If you're ready then, let's head into the dark. *Lumos*The ThestralsIf you thought those winged scaly creatures pulling the prison coach at the start … [Read more...] about Every Harry Potter Easter egg we spotted in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

A Harry Potter fan film that got underway with Warner Bros.’ blessings after a 2016 crowdfunding campaign has launched. Voldemort: Origins of the Heir, went up on YouTube yesterday. The film’s makers, Tryangle Films, are very careful to say it’s a non-commercial work that isn’t endorsed by Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling, Warner Bros. or any of the companies managing that canon. Still, it scratches a big itch for Potter fans — the backstories of principal characters from the eight-movie series that spanned a decade. Tryangle Films began a crowdfunding venture for the movie back in 2016, and shortly after the filmmakers were contacted by Warner Bros., the rights holders to the movie series. Crowdfunding went on hold as the two sides talked, and Tryangle emerged with tacit permission to make the film on a non-profit basis and launch it on YouTube. The tension was worth it, because the story that co-directors Gianmaria Pezzato and Stefano Prestia wanted to … [Read more...] about Harry Potter fan film — covering Voldemort’s rise — launches on YouTube
