Ukuza Announces Epic Loon Nintendo Switch Release in New Gameplay Trailer

LEWES, Del., Jan. 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Ukuza's quirky physics platformer, Epic Loon, has had quite the busy week. Just about timed up perfectly with the new year, the title has received a brand new, highly detailed and supremely weird gameplay trailer. And the trailer has a special twist, no less: an announcement toward the end that Epic Loon will now be released via the Nintendo Switch.

This new video delves deeply into the story, characters, and gameplay that make up the entirety of the game, including heavy footage of the 4-player co-op and "battle" modes. Multiple vignettes of gameplay footage are on display, thoroughly making a meal of the title's multiplayer elements, with the aim of conveying just how centralized the game's focus is on the couch co-op aspect. As for the announcement itself? It can be seen during the closing of the trailer.

Epic Loon seems to be an extra good fit for a console like the Switch, whose own hardware marketing has been touted as a return to form for intimate gaming. The Switch is a console on which the experience is better when shared, and the exact same can be said about this game whose core message is "Play while sharing a beer with friends." The trailer can be found via Epic Loon's official website (www.epicloon.com) and the Ukuza YouTube channel (https://youtu.be/9NGRZO7ulmw).

Along with PC, Xbox One and PS4, our favorite cosmic quartet will now be terrorizing Joe and his film collection on the Nintendo Switch. All ports will be released in Q2 2018. Visit the Epic Loon Steam page (http://store.steampowered.com/app/762190/Epic_Loon) to keep up to date with all of the latest developments and to add Epic Loon to your Steam Wish List.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...
Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
"Evatronix provides design services to companies that need to integrate the IoT technology in their products but they don't necessarily have the expertise, knowledge and design team to do so," explained Adam Morawiec, VP of Business Development at Evatronix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Jack Norris, Senior Vice President, Data and Applications at MapR Technologies, reviewed best practices to ...
Widespread fragmentation is stalling the growth of the IIoT and making it difficult for partners to work together.

Large industrial manufacturing organizations are adopting the agile principles of cloud software companies. The industrial manufacturing development process has not scaled over time.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
