oh, HVS.  We could have made such beautiful music together.

Gyrostarr? Loved it.
Conduit? Loved it.

Conduit 2? .... who killed Michael Ford and why is Duke Nukem running his missions?

Now this? ... ugh.... gotta pay the bills though, eh?

Please just make Conduit 3DS (every third entry in every franchise ever will be released for the 3DS for the naming reason alone) with the tone of C1 and the frills of C2 and everything will be cool again! K??

... oh and Gyrostarr 2 would be amaaaaazing on 3DS.  k? thx. =P

What happened to The Grinder?

TJ SpykeAugust 16, 2011

NinSage, High Voltage has mostly been a for-work developer (meaning a publisher comes to them and asks them to develop the game). The Conduit was their first big game they did on their own. Here are some of their games they developed:

White Men Can't Jump for Atari on 3DO (their first game)
The Haunted Mansion
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Family Guy Video Game!
Duel Masters
Ben 10: Protector of Earth
Codename: Kids Next Door - Operation: V.I.D.E.O.G.A.M.E.
Go, Diego, Go!: Safari Rescue

So they are not new to doing crappy games to pay the bills.

They also made Harvey Birdman Attorney At Law. I can never hate them.

I guess The Conduit must not have made them enough money if they are returning to this stuff.

NinSageAugust 16, 2011

TJ - right right, but for a moment there it was looking like they would break out that's all.

Mop_it_up - they're probably short on cash cuz I'm not gonna by Conduit Duke Nukem edition 2 until it is $10. =P

I actually wrote HVS an email telling them that..... I never got a response. =\

KDR_11kAugust 16, 2011

Why does that shovelware developer still get any attention?

ShyGuyAugust 16, 2011

I still love you High Voltage, Don't listen to the German.
