Tonic Games Group has become the new parent company for game development studios Mediatonic and Fortitude and will oversee the publishing label The Irregular Corporation. It is a sign the company has moved up the world of gaming and wants to build a sustainable long-term business.

The London-based Tonic Games Group has about 300 people making games in seven locations around the world. It has five studios and two publishing offices, and it is partnered with third-party studios in 13 countries across its brand family. These groups were scattered as separate companies, though they had the same ownership.

The new parent company was formed by game creators Dave Bailey, the CEO of Tonic Games Group, and Paul Croft, a co-founder and chief games officer. The parent company has a deep belief in having a positive impact with the games it creates as well as the way those games are created, Croft and Bailey said in an interview with GamesBeat.

Their goal is to find new ways to bring original franchises to the two billion people who play games nowadays. In 2005, Bailey and Croft started Mediatonic as a work-for-hire studio. Their first project, which was made while they were still in college, was a Flash game named Snowman Salvage, and they continued to build games for PopCap Games (presently owned by EA), PlayFirst, and Big Fish Games. It developed specialties in live services, heavily in demand now.

They also wanted to work on new games and new intellectual properties which were their own creations. They wanted a more resilient business.

Mediatonic has now grown into four studios with 230 people making titles like Yahtzee with Buddies for Scopely and Gears Pop for Xbox Game Studios. Mediatonic has 27 games in active development.

Tonic Games Group has a new office in London; however, the team can’t move into it yet due to the coronavirus pandemic. The company raised a $30 million round of funding one year ago, and it has diversified beyond the original business.

Review KAKEGURUI anime – The best gambling anime in Japan

Since ancient times gambling is often considered a chance, and the house is still profitable. But in Kakegurui, there is no such thing as luck or fortune; they are all tricks of cheating, how to read the opponent, and the art of gambling.

Not just a popular game in the casino, Kakegurui also develops new rules, and new gambling games bring creativity and newness. The game level also grows with each episode, getting more and more complex. The game begins with a cover, a pull, a hammer, but it is played on cards. The rule is to choose three cards drawn with three sheets, scissors, sticks, then choose a card to play, the same rules as the original game. Or the set of playing cards is the same, but there are 130 cards, the probability of winning is only 1/65. Therefore, in Kakegurui’s game, luck is almost impossible.

Her emotions seemed to flourish with every game. Start with a calm, gentle, friendly smile, humble way of speaking. After that, Jabami will happily catch his prey by letting the opponent be happy because of the feeling of overwhelming dominance, playing with luck, and studying the opponent’s tricks. And finally, she turned the flag over at the last minute, excited to enjoy the sweet taste, and the crazy joy of gambling.

Along with that character is Kakegurui’s eye-catching graphics, beautiful characters, smooth movement, illustrations when the characters explain the game tricks quite clearly. However, the most impressive impression is the expression of the character. Right from the first episode of the anime, many people were startled by the creepy expression of the character. Therefore, if you say “gambling is crazy”, then from expressions like happy trembling with excitement, saliva splashing when encouraging the opponent, or the eyes flashed, glowing brightly when catching catch the opponent was enough to make the viewer see how crazy it is.

You have reins, pick them up and win. Even if you find that too weird, don’t worry. It is possible that your skills have not been verified, but the truth is that you have acquired all of them. Think of this as a driving test. Feel what it will be like and adjust accordingly when you drive.
