A tight-knit group of Winnipeg new media professionals tucked into a small room at 1000 Waverley Street for an evening of lessons and laughter with Complex Games Inc’s own Noah Decter-Jackson. The talk, hosted by New Media Manitoba’s Kevin Hnatiuk, titled “Hard Lessons for Building a New Media Empire”, saw Noah regaling the audience with tales of the very early days of Complex Games, some thirteen years ago.

Noah spoke openly and honestly about the many struggles and triumphs he and so many other new media folk have faced in starting a business. By the end of his presentation, attendees learned what mistakes to avoid, what strengths to focus on, and the importance of figuring out what works for them on an individual level.

We’d like to say a big Thank You to New Media Manitoba for being such wonderful hosts, as they always are.

Never forget to collect your underpants!

Noah discusses how he started Complex Games by creating the video game development equivalent of a garage band of talented friends.

Noah reminded us all to keep things within a healthy scope when you first start out!

In this rough sketch, Noah describes Dungeon: Gladiator, one of the first things Complex Games ever worked on. Looks pretty sweet if you ask me.

It’s true, mistakes happen all the time. The key is learning from them!

We’ve been feeling a little more academic lately thanks to two Red River College Digital Media Design (DMD) students visiting our studio. Tia Grantham and Scott Delorme have spent three weeks with us learning the ins and outs of game development as part of their program’s work placement requirement. Work Placement is a key portion of the DMD program, encouraging students to put their skills to work at local creative companies prior to graduating.

During their studies, Tia and Scott both majored in 3D and plan to move on to the college’s third year advanced 3D diploma, a program that’s certainly not for the faint of heart. During their time with us, we’ve shown them how to optimize game maps and render in-game icons for upcoming content in a fast-paced mobile game studio environment. They had two art leads and an animator overseeing their work during this time, to get a variety of direction and feedback on their work. Tia and Scott are focused, highly skilled artists who’ve shown us excellent work and creative drive in their short time here.

Tia

Not only is she talented, Tia is a beacon of positivity!

Scott 

While creative media wizard Scott wasn’t keen on smiling for the camera, he was okay with showing off his glorious red mane, for which we are thankful.

It’s really important for us to welcome students like Tia and Scott in the studio, as it allows us to connect with budding artists, designers, and programmers, and share our knowledge of the industry with them. We are so happy to have worked with these two talented creatives and wish them all the best as they move on to next year’s studies. Thank you, Tia and Scott!

Drop Assault Launches worldwide

We’re incredibly excited to announce that The Horus Heresy: Drop Assault is now available worldwide on iOS devices.

Download and play it here. Please note: we will be launching on Android soon.

Leading mobile game development studio Complex Games Inc., in conjunction with Games Workshop®, the definitive leader in tabletop war games, and mobile game publisher CROOZ, Inc. (headquarters: Minato-ku, Tokyo; CEO: Koji Obuchi) are proud to announce the iOS exclusive worldwide launch of a new mobile title, The Horus Heresy: Drop Assault.

Set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, this tactical strategy title is the first ever video game to take place in the wildly popular Horus Heresy setting.

The Horus Heresy: Drop Assault is set in the gritty lands of the recently virus-bombed Isstvan III. Players must choose a side in the civil war that erupted amongst the Emperor’s Space Marine Legions in the 30th Millennium. Will you be loyal to the Emperor or follow the traitorous Horus? Players can build and customize bases, muster armies, and break their enemies’ strongholds through intense territorial warfare.  Additionally, players can create unique Chapters with their friends and challenge rivals across the globe with a novel multiplayer Skirmish gameplay mode.

Noah Decter-Jackson, CEO of Complex Games Inc., on the launch of the game:

“We’re extremely happy to be able to launch Drop Assault worldwide on iOS!  The game has been undergoing extensive live-testing and tweaking over the past few months, and it’s finally in a state where we’re ready to go live and unleash it on all the fans!”

Jon Gillard, Head of Games Workshop Licensing had this to say about the upcoming title:

“The guys at Complex have been working long and hard to make a fantastic game from this most infamous of conflicts from the Horus Heresy era and it shows. It’s compelling, fun and captures the desperate trials of the Isstvan III campaign wonderfully, and you get to field Glaive tanks and Reaver Titans! What’s not to like?”
