Swedish UXvibe beta-tests Rope Rumble

Swedish UXvibe has previously mostly functioned as a “co-development studio”, working on clients’ projects.

Finnish Kumoon gets a reboot and Steam Greenlight arrival

Lastly, to end off, it wouldn’t be a true “This Week in Games” article without some sort of Steam-related news, would it? Let me present to you, Kumoon!

Initially developed by a small team of gamedev students in Finland, Kumoon won the Assembly Gamedev Competition back in 2005. Now, ten years later, the game has been re-launched with a Steam Greenlight campaign going up on the 11th of June. In just a few short days, the game was already Greenlit by the community, and is now set for an Autumn 2015 release.
