Welcoming a new Community Associate

By | Double Eleven | No Comments

At Double Eleven, nothing is more important than our players. To make sure we give them the best experience possible, we’ve brought on a new Community Associate. Natalie will be concentrating on interacting with our user base, as well as creating content and supporting marketing operations.

We’ve posed Natalie some gruelling questions, so you can get to know her a little better.

 

Who are you?

I’m a married cat lady, living in Teesside. I’m a regular gamer, a board game reviewer and comedy enthusiast. I love sci fi, cats, crafting and cats. Sometimes a combination of all the above.

What sort of games do you like to play?

My main loves are adventure games and RPGs. My early gaming history is in top-down strategy games like Dungeon Keeper, as well as point-and-click titles like Simon the Sorcerer. Since my first console (very worn out Crash Bandicoot disc), I’ve been a committed PlayStation fangirl, with a collection of PSones that borders on obsessive.

What makes you excited for working for Double Eleven?

Having been a gamer my whole life, it feels like an immense privilege to be on the inside for once. I’m excited about engaging with our players and making their lives better, while championing great projects and building strong relationships with other studios and partners. It’s a fantastic opportunity to be part of a company with such a strong reputation for quality and commitment. Also, the office is fantastic, which obviously helps.

What do you hope to achieve?

As Double Eleven move into a publishing-focused role, it’s more essential than ever to make sure that the company is communicating effectively with its players. Information and openness is key, and it’s important to make sure that not only are customers hearing about products, but also that players’ voices are being heard. Going forward, I hope to grow on Double Eleven’s user-first attitude, and help to improve the user experience. I want to showcase all of the things that makes Double Eleven unique and wonderful.

We’re really excited to have Natalie on board and finally give our valued community the attention it deserves. If you have any questions for Natalie or you’d just like to give her a warm welcome to the team, email contact@double11.com and she’ll be more than happy to help you out!

YellowDart is full Steam ahead – PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate

By | PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate | No Comments

Hi folks,

We are proud to announce, in our continued collaboration with Kyoto based Q-Games, that PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate will be launching on Steam and Windows PC TODAY!

For that of you that may not know, what is Shooter Ultimate? PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate is a twin stick shooter with equal elements of action, exploration, and puzzle solving. The Ultimate’ comes from the fact that PixelJunk Shooter 1 and 2 were combined to make a seamless story mode featuring all of the levels from both games.

That however, is not all, we’ve made a number of enhancements, making the PC edition the best ever version of the game. Players now have the choice to switch between two art styles: the new semi-3D, environmentally lit graphics with other visual enhancements in the ‘Ultimate’ edition or the ‘Classic’ style of the original games. It’s also good news for those who own PixelJunk Shooter already on Steam; Ultimate can use its save game to continue on into the second chapter.

PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate will be available on Steam and other selected online retailers from TODAY.

Be sure to follow @DoubleElevenLtd and @PixelJunkNews for more reconnaissance. D11 OUT.

By | Goat Simulator | No Comments

Hey Folks,

It’s all systems goat at Double Eleven right now and with Goat Simulator MMOre GoatZ Edition due out on Xbox in less than a week, there’s no sign of us kidding around!

For those of you who aren’t aware, Goat Simulator MMOre GoatZ Edition is Goat MMO Simulator and Goat Z rolled into one neat package. We felt that you didn’t have quite enough hilarious, bug-filled fun with the first game so we decided to bring more goat-filled fun to the Xbox One & Xbox 360.
You can now be a simulated goat in a simulated MMO or a simulated goat in a simulated zombie apocalypse. Just when you thought you’d exhausted your Goat Simulator fantasies…..

I’m happy to tell you that Goat Simulator MMOre GoatZ Edition will be coming out on Xbox One on August 26th!
