Developed exclusively for Xbox One, Quantum Break blurs the line between television and gameplay, integrating the two into one seamless, uniquely immersive experience. Quantum Break weaves the cinematic action of intense gameplay with the tension and drama of scripted television, creating a world where each has a direct impact on the other.
Oh that joyful scream that echoes the Remedy offices by the end of the week, every week… Traditionally people gather around the kitchen area at 3 PM for a nice treat and casual (usually work-related) chat. This Friday it was all about ice cream and debate over which flavour to choose. Yum!
We recently sat down with our newest employees and trainees for a nice little chat about working at Remedy. Eva, Matti, Robert, Timo and Waltteri all became “remedians” when joining the company shortly after we moved to our new studio in December.
“Remedy has a funny contrast really, on one hand there’s such a casual environment with people socializing, chatting about games or playing pool while sipping free soda. On the other hand it’s such a creative place to be, and even trainees are given demanding tasks and responsibility. Probably the best word to describe Remedy is ambitious: everything is done in earnest.”
Our new guys (and gal!) come from various backgrounds. Some have gained years of experience working on games, others found their way here straight out of school. One of them didn’t even have a clue about the gaming industry, but ended up sending an application after googling open positions and finding a new interest in games.
“Remedy is worth applying to even though you don’t live in Finland, their re-location people really look after you and make the move painless. It’s one of the only Finnish AAA-studios and its reputation exceeds itself. I came here because Remedy is one of the few companies in the world that makes such cinematic, atmospheric and story-driven games.”
Although everyone seems content with Remedy, it seems that there’s still one thing missing. “More employees please! We need even more great talent to come work with us both on the unannounced triple A thing and the iOS project. Hey, and having new pool opponents wouldn’t be that bad either.”
Last Friday the new Remedy offices got heated up with a kick-ass housewarming party. Employees, their better halves and our gaming industry friends were served delicious food and insidiously good cocktails.
As a golden sponsor of the Finnish Game Jam, we introduced our headquarters also to the jammers with a behind-the-scenes video. Check out the clip and party pictures below!
Due to some mishaps the Death Rally for a Dollar campaign coupons couldn’t be used during the Steam Holiday Sale. We apologize for the inconvenience and are more than happy to tell you that the coupons’ expiration date has been extended until January 31st.
If you were quick enough to grab a discount code from the Dollar app on Facebook during December and haven’t used it, now’s the time! Just go to Steam, enter the coupon code to Activate a Product on Steam, then add Death Rally to your shopping cart and the discount should be activated.
It seems that we’ve been more nice than naughty this year, as Santa came by and gave everyone an iPad mini with the employee’s name engraved on it. A pretty good upgrade from the jumpers we got last year.
Past year has been great for us with the launches of Alan Wake’s American Nightmare and PC versions of Alan Wake and Death Rally. We’ve also been growing steadily and conquered a whole new office while doing so.
If you think you’ve got what it takes to join our awesome teams who are creating the next great digital and AAA titles, check out our recruit site.
We here at Remedy want to wish you the most peaceful and joyful holiday season and all the best for 2013!
Although still under construction, the new Remedy HQ looks great and will look even greater in a couple of months. Our first Monday meeting took place in the gaming lobby with some heavy drilling noises and confusing instructions on how to use the lavatories, but other than that it was nice to have everybody together again.
The not-notorious but ever so ready race driver Butch might not be the one to cut out coupons to get the best deals, but this offer is too easy even for him. Just a few clicks and voilá: you’ve got Death Rally for a dollar (or at least 90% in any Steam supported currency). Dead simple, right?
This campaign has ended, thanks for liking Death Rally! Be sure to follow upcoming offers on our Facebook page.
Did you just accidentally buy a 60″ flat screen TV? Or miss the latest Steam sale, because you got caught up watching The Unreal Truckwives On Ice With The Stars marathon on your 60″ flat screen TV? Consider your problems solved!
Steam officially launched their Big Picture feature, which makes using Steam on a bigger screen and with any game controller dead simple. Now you can blast through your Steam library in your living room just by clicking the friendly BIG PICTURE -button on the Steam application window.
To celebrate the new feature, we’re spreading big love with Alan Wake and Alan Wake’s American Nightmare which are 75% off. Both games have Full Controller Support, so you can install and play them without a keyboard or mouse. Give the Big Picture a go and see Wake on the widescreen on Steam.
