"Ubisoft is said to be working on a new 2D Prince of Persia game using Rayman Legends’ UbiArt Framework engine.French website Le Portail du Jeu Video claims it was told that, like Rayman, the Prince’s legs, arms, and other body parts will animate independently of each other, making him look like a 3D model. As with other Prince of Persia games, the Prince will run, swordfight, and perform various acrobatics to avoid traps. Ubisoft’s upcoming Child of Light, which mixes RPG and 2D platforming, is another game that uses the UbiArt Framework."


"With help from a growing posse on 4chan, Pastebin user Data_Baser is attempting to compile a list of every video game ever released. Not just console games or PC games, but every mobile and browser-based game as well. The current count? 43,806.It’s a monumental task, made somewhat easier through the use of regular expression to scour the internet for information. The list is far from complete, and Data_Baser plans on including every foreign game, visual novel, cheap hentai thrill and super-casual mobile puzzle game."
