Was It A Mistake To Let The World Know The Secret Of Monkey Island?
TwitchCon Local Area Network
On the platform Twitch.
Multiple people were injured, including broken bones, after being enticed by a Lenovo Livestream encouraging TwitchCon attendees to jump into a foam pit.
Some attendees of the previous TwitchCon were gravely hurt when they jumped into the foam pit. The most recent twist is that people were reportedly encouraged to jump in, which might have disastrous consequences. “They opened the pit up a second day after the first person injured their foot and ankle badly enough to leave TwitchCon in a brace. multiple people were injured and they kept the pit open, said the jump in booty first!” tweeted the streamer Adriana Chechik, who required surgery after falling into the pit.
A union representing Twitch streamers is necessary.
Twitch has stated that a revenue split of 70/30 is “Not Viable In The Long Term.”

The True Secret of Monkey Island Is Revealed by Ron Gilbert
Ron Gilbert, the man behind Return to Monkey Island, revealed the game’s true secret on the record the other day, to the delight of some and the ire of others. “On Twitter, Gilbert explained, “We never really addressed what that secret was in the original game, and when we started this game, we said, ‘well, we really need to tell people what that secret is.’ You don’t want to just kick that football down the field another time.” I won’t reveal the secret because of spoilers, but needless to say, many preferred that it remained unknown.
Death of Babylon
Despite the failure of Babylon’s Fall, PlatinumGames will continue to create live services.
Platinum’s CEO Atsushi Inaba has stated that the game’s disastrous sales numbers have not changed the company’s plans for developing live service games. “There’s a lot that we learned from this experience and it has not changed our future plans or outlook moving forward regarding doing live service games in any way,” Inaba said “Cutting your losses can be necessary at times, but maybe they have the next big thing.
