ICYMI – A Post Direct World


Hello there Wired Family, and welcome to The Wire…I mean, In Case You Missed It!

We have a sharp new name, a packed content schedule and more games for you to wishlist than you can fit into an opening monologue – so without further ado, lets get started!

Those of you wanting to HEAR the things as well as see them, can do so below!

Talking Direct

After many hard months of preparation, we were FINALLY able to share our 2021 lineup with the world in the form of Wired Direct, our very first all digital show where we unleashed a smorgasbord of new games, interviews and updates with the presenting talents of Julia Hardy!
Just in case you’ve been living under a rock for the past month (or if you want to watch it again, we wouldn’t blame you) You can see it for yourself right here.

 

 

Countdown To Black Label

 

The Wired Black Label collection was yet another announcement from the Direct! A premium range of special editions of our games, crafted with the super fan in mind as a celebration of art, music and of course the games themselves!
The very first one in the collection will be ARPG favourite Victor Vran, and pre-orders are going to be available in just 25 days!

You can register your interest by visiting our store today and visiting the Black Label page right here : Victor Vran Black Label

 

Meet The Community Manager

 

The new additions to the website don’t stop coming! Last week Tegan kicked off a brand new series in the form of our ‘Meet The Team’ blog – which aims to put some voices and faces to the Wired team and the developers of our games!

The very first of these features this interesting chap who you may recognise from our #WiredLive shows and.. well it’s me! Go check out the interview today for a rundown on all manner of discussion from content creation, getting into the industry, and what it means to work art Wired : Meet Gary Interview

Martha Is Dead GamesRadar Article

 

Martha is dead received a brand new trailer of the direct, showcasing some of the photography elements you’ll be tasked with performing over the course of the game (as well as some rather unnerving looking characters – best watch it with the lights on)
Additionally, the team at Games Radar sat down with Luca from LKA games to discuss the darkness of life in the shadow of WW2, one of the core themes and the backdrop for the events of Martha Is Dead

The interview is a fascinating read, and we’d highly encourage you to go and give it a look to discover exactly why Martha stands apart from other war and horror stories, before heading over to Steam and putting it on your wishlist! : Martha Is Dead Interview 

Okay that is going to do it for this weeks ICYMI! go get yourselves entered into our competitions, get notifications enabled for our YouTube and Twitch content and go forth to kick down the doors of the rest of the week!
