NRM Group presents 'life-changing' CHIPS chairReading Time: 2 minutes

 

NRM Group, the leading independently owned gaming technology and software solutions provider, has celebrated its partnership with industry charity CHIPS, presenting the first NRM/Connected Entertainment funded bespoke powered wheelchair to 12-year-old Sofie Davidson from Middlesbrough. The presentation to Sofie and mum Lisa took place at NRM’s Head Office in Hessle, near Hull.

Sofie lives with Spina Bifida and Scoliosis which severely restricts the movement in her lower limbs and results in almost constant back pain which could require surgery at some point in the future. Commenting on the new chair, Sofie’s Mum Lisa explained: “Up until now Sofie has had to move herself around school which is exhausting, making her reliant on other people which takes away her independence. This powered chair will literally transform her life and that of her friends and family. Quality of life is so important and this represents a huge improvement for Sofie.”

Speaking at the presentation, NRM’s Managing Director, Andrew Ludlow said: “We’ve enjoyed a fabulous morning in the company of Lisa and Sofie.  The team at NRM/Connected alongside our customers throughout the industry have all worked tremendously hard to raise sufficient funds to purchase the CHIPS chair and seeing Sofie and Lisa has made it all so worthwhile. I speak on behalf of everyone at the company when I say quite how uplifting it has been to see how these small gestures can materially impact somebody’s life for the better.”

He continued: “CHIPS is a unique charity which was formed by the gaming industry and which encapsulates many of its stand-out characteristics. Under the leadership of CHIPS co-founder, Linda Lindsay It is also a supremely efficient organisation with every penny that’s raised going directly to the purchase of chairs such as the one we have presented today.  We look forward to continuing our relationship with CHIPS and beginning the next phase of our campaign to fund a second powered chair very soon.”

Linda Lindsay, added: “I am absolutely thrilled to be able to include NRM/Connected Entertainment, among our community of supporters. It’s thanks to the wonderful generosity of companies such as NRM/Connected, that we continue to deliver powered chairs to those families for whom the NHS is unable to assist.  Since our launch we have raised in excess of  £2.4m allowing us to purchase over 550 wheelchairs.  However, the demand for powered wheelchairs will always exceed our ability to supply them but with the help of supporters such as NRM/Connected Entertainment, CHIPS can help to close that gap. Thanks once again to Andrew, Paul and the teams at NRM and Connected Entertainment for choosing to support CHIPS and for helping to give another young person the precious gift of mobility.”

Zitro to Offer Training Session at SAGSE 2019 with Collaboration of the University of PalermoReading Time: < 1 minute

 

Zitro University is going to offer a new edition of its training event at SAGSE 2019 with the collaboration of the University of Palermo, one of the most prestigious universities in Latin America.

“This year we have chosen a different way to collaborate with SAGSE and show the casino operators our commitment with the Latin American region. After the extensive product presentation we made during the Zitro Experience Argentina in April, we believed that, on this occasion, the best way to add value to our customers was by contributing to creating at SAGSE a space for reflection on the future of the industry, which has to take into account the changes in consumer tastes and the abundant entertainment offer that comes hand in hand with new technologies,” Sebastián Salat, CEO of Zitro said.

“The University of Palermo and Zitro are united by the firm conviction that continuous training is an essential tool to face the changes that occur, at a speed every time more vertiginous, in all areas of our lives, and, of course, also in the gaming industry. We thank Zitro for inviting us to its Zitro University, and, above all, for continuing to promote this type of training events, so necessary in such a rapidly changing world,” Patricio O’Gorman, professor at the University of Palermo said.

‘Century Siege: TD Battles’ Going Live

‘Century Siege: TD Battles’ Going LiveReading Time: 2 minutes

 

Synergizing ‘Card Battlers’ with Tower Defense, MOBAs, and Mythology!

Goober Games, in collaboration with Stepico, announced that their ambitious PvP title, ​Century Siege ​, will be launching globally on November 20th, 2019, after spending several months in Soft Launch. “With Century Siege we originally set out to follow the road paved by Clash Royale. But we soon realized that this pathwas well-worn and, by listening to our community, we decided that the only way to stand-out was to take risks and differentiate” – ​Benjamin Andre, Project Director and Lead Design ​.

Through this planned progression of tweaks, optimizations, and feature additions, the dust has officially settled; leaving Century Siege with the ability to stand on its own two feet, with a face all its own. ​Yes​, it has the ‘Elixer’ and ‘Card’ (Summon) mechanics that have become genre-staples; but it also has many tricks up its sleeve that add a much deeper level of Strategy.

An Offensive Tower class called ‘ ​Spawners ​’ that create a constant stream of friendly units that travel down the lane to assault the Opponent.

Players also choose a ​‘General’ ​, each with their own Special Abilities, that will lead the troops in battle. With Abraham Lincoln, lay waste to enemies with a barrage of cannonfire. Or, select Ghenghis Khan and assault the opponent’s Crystals with hordes of Mongolian Archers.

Once an Enemy Crystal is destroyed, ​‘Rift Creeps’ ​ of the player’s choosing (Minotaurs, Werewolves, Zombies, etc) will begin to rush that lane in a fashion that ​MOBA ​ fans will be familiar with (they even drop gold!).

These features coalesce into an engaging ‘Tug-of-War’ experience that succeeds in its quest to be different. If that was all that was to be said, it would already be enough to recommend giving Century Siege a shot. But, the personality and the ​World ​ that the game creates through its subtexts of Time Travel, Mythology, and historical figures, place Century Siege in a position to be considered one of the most unique ‘Tower Defense’ games released into the Mobile App Market.

Given that the team already has plans for a Single-Player mode or standalone TD game, it is apparent that there is certainly a lot of room for exploration within the world of Century Siege; and we are excited to see which paths this community will travel down. Take a look for yourself on November 20th, available for free on the Google Play and App Stores.
