Extraction One of UK's Most Exciting Games, Says Kotaku

The new UK flavour of Kotaku is here, and, as one would, they start proceedings off in patriotic style by assembling a list of what they think are the most exciting British games in development. We're delighted to see that Extraction / Dirty Bomb (depending on where you are in the world) is part of it, joining games like Elite: Dangerous, Sir You Are Being Hunted, and Arkham Knight.

We know there hasn't been much news about the game lately, but we'll have much more to say soon. In the meantime, you can sign up for email alerts on Nexon's website for the game so you won't miss a thing when stuff starts kicking off.

Splash Damage Wears Hats, Raises Money for Charity

March was National Brain Tumor Awareness Month and it culminated in a great event called Wear a Hat Day. Never one to miss out on a chance to dress up, we promptly threw our collective headgear behind it.

We had a whole bunch of team members show up at work in their best/worst hats (see picture above for evidence) and managed to raise some money for brain tumor research in the process, with wristbands going for £1. We managed to raise £108, with Splash Damage matching everyone's contributions for a final tally of £216, all of which will be going to the charity.

You can find out more about Wear a Hat Day on the Brain Tumor Research website.
