High Voltage Software is seeking tax credits from the Illinois state legislature, according to a report surrounding a number of companies looking for incentives currently stalled by a veto from governor Pat Quinn over a lack ...
Remember High Voltage Software's Animales de la Muerte? Originally one of the most promising-sounding titles for the then-new WiiWare service, it stewed in limbo for a few years before dropping WiiWare and becoming an XBLA /...
The Conduit HD, a high-definition re-release of High Voltage Software's Wii-exclusive first-person shooter, is now available for Tegra 3-optimized Android devices on Google's Play Store. Along with the visual upgrade, the gam...


I won't blame you for only vaguely remembering The Conduit, the Wii-exclusive first-person shooter that developer High Voltage Software claimed would be so technologically proficient that it would demonstrate just how little ...
Conduit 2 developer High Voltage stands accused of attempting to "Amazonbomb" a man's book in retaliation for a negative Conduit 2 review. Michael T. Murdock called Conduit 2 "appalling" and trashed the graphics, voice acting...
I've spent the past week playing through the short, but inevitably sweet single player campaign of the sequel to one of the most talked about games last year. I then spent some time playing through its new multiplayer modes a...
During GDC I had the chance to speak with Eric Stoll, game designer at High Voltage Software, the developer's upcoming year. They seem to be hitting many angles with from digital downloads like Animales De La Muerte, first-p...
Yet another downloadable title ditches the WiiWare platform for the (apparently) cozier confines of the Xbox Live Marketplace and PlayStation Network. This time it's High Voltages crazy-looking top-down shooter, Animales de l...
High Voltage Software has declared that its long-forgotten shooter, The Grinder, is still alive and waiting for a publisher. If you can't remember what it is, it's a first-person shooter for the Wii that is also a third-perso...
Oh look, it's a multiplayer trailer for Conduit 2! This video gives you a taste of the twelve-person online combat, not to mention the four-player splitscreen mode. This is definitely looking like the best online first-perso...
Conduit 2 developer High Voltage has praised the 3DS' technical power, claiming it to be more mighty than the Wii. I'm not sure if being more powerful than the Wii is something one can be proud of, but alright. "In some ways,...
Conduit and The Grinder developer High Voltage has criticized the prevailing attitude that videogames need to sell over a million in order to be considered a success, calling such a believe "preposterous" and declaring that t...
High Voltage Software, developer of the upcoming Wii shooter Conduit 2, is already working with Microsoft's motion camera, Kinect. Chief Creative Officer Eric Nofsinger revealed the project to Eurogamer, although details are ...
High Voltage's upcoming first-person shooter for the Wii is looming on the horizon, and we at Destructoid got some early, exclusive coverage. Eric Nofsinger, the Chief Creative Officer of High Voltage Software, allowed us some hands-on time with this highly-anticipated Wii title, and revealed some new details about Conduit 2, as well as some other "secret projects."
I'm posting this for two reasons. For one, I totally forgot about Animals de la Muerte. Seeing this post over on GoNintendo reminded me of its existence, and I'm happy for that. Secondly, I think it's worth noting the sad tre...
SEGA has announced that its upcoming online Wii shooter, Conduit 2, is getting a modest delay. Originally slated for March, the game will now hit North America on April 19, with the European version arriving April 22.  T...
We have very exciting news! Destructoid Chill Bros have the exclusive pre-release, two months early for Conduit 2, one of Destructoid's most anticipated games for the Nintendo Wii in 2011. We will be playing the game live wit...
I get the sense that a lot of people are skeptical about Conduit 2. First, it's a Wii game, which is already enough to upset some people. Second, the original Conduit received a lot of pre-release hype, but failed to live up...
The Conduit 2 is coming to the Wii on February 15 and I'm somewhat looking forward to it. The original game was alright in that really sneery meaning of the word, so I'm eager to see what improvements have been made. The tra...
Things are happening with the Conduit 2. Unfortunately, I can't tell you what I mean by that. All I can tell you is, if you do your homework and play your cards right, you could see something; something big. Depending on ...
Bad news for Wii owners and first-person shooter fans -- High Voltage's sequel Conduit 2 has been pushed out of this year and in to 2011. The game will now see release in the first quarter of next year. The good news is that ...
You remember back in the nineties when we had the fighting game boom? Dozens of "me too" titles with increasingly silly premises, all vying for a piece of the one-on-one fighter pie. Rise of the Robots, Primal Rage, Eternal C...
The first Conduit game gave Wii gamers exactly what they were waiting for with a solid, point-to-shoot FPS. High Voltage's game fit the bill nicely, but both the developers and gamers knew that there was so much more that cou...
SEGA shot us over some information about Conduit 2. Specifically, information on whether the first-person shooter would incorporate Wii MotionPlus controls. In the event you were wondering, Conduit 2 will support Wii MotionPl...
We've all been calling it The Conduit 2, but apparently we're damn wrong. "The" isn't cool anymore, and anybody who uses it is a big square. From now on, High Voltage's sequel to The Conduit is shedding the formalities and wi...
High Voltage's The Conduit 2 was revealed only yesterday, but the first bunch of screens have appeared online, giving us a taste of what's in store for fans of the Wii shooter.  As expected, the game is already looking g...
High Voltage's The Grinder is weird. On the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, it will be a top-down action game inspired by Hunter: The Reckoning. On Wii, it will remain the concept it originally started life as -- a co-op FPS inspi...
High Voltage's not-totally-successful Wii shooter The Conduit is getting sequel, as confirmed by Nintendo Power. While specific gameplay details were not shared, the magazine still managed eight pages of content on the thing,...
High Voltage's Tournament of Legends has been pretty quiet since it was announced, but there is a bunch of new stuff for Wii fans to gawp at like rudderless guppies, including a new video, box art, and a sweet little price p...
So, a game usually needs to turn a profit in order to warrant a sequel, right guys? Mushroom Men 2 and Dark Void 2 will likely never be created, but we'll definitely be seeing Just Dance 2 and Assassin's Creed 3 in the next f...
High Voltage Software's Wii-exclusive co-op shooter The Grinder has been set free! As revealed by president Kerry Ganofsky in an interview with IGN, the studio plans to make its newest game a multiplatform affair. That's PC, ...
Well, here is something: Developer High Voltage Software has recently filed for trademark of "Immortal Warriors."  High Voltage is a busy developer, with at least three other announced projects in the cards -- first-pers...
The guys at High Voltage have been a bit silent since E3 and the launch of The Conduit. After announcing The Grinder and Gladiator A.D. I'm sure they're hard at work actually developing those games, but it seems they've got s...
High Voltage, the studio best known for The Conduit and its two upcoming games Gladiator A.D. and The Grinder, has just gotten itself into a lifetime licensing agreement with Terminal Reality's Infernal Engine. While the deve...
Osamu Tezuka's classic title Astro Boy is an important piece of animation history -- many cite it as the birth of the modern anime, with its debut on TV in 1963 (the manga started in 1952). And now, the character is getting a...
Something amazing happened at E3 this year. Through a combination of deceit, determination, and pure luck, I managed to capture on video an amazing series of events; a daisy chain of game developers playing each others stuff,...
Where The Conduit is exciting because it promises to be the first fully featured online FPS on the Wii, and The Grinder looks promising for it's co-op and horror/comedy combo, Gladiator A.D.'s claim to fame is being damn stra...
Jesus Christ, The Grinder looks awesome.I'm not a big fan of the FPS genre, but when a game brings this much to the table, it doesn't matter what genre it's in. The Grinder combines the knowingly over-the-top horror/comedy of...
After I played Gladiator A.D., I checked out High Voltage’s upcoming Wii-exclusive FPS (built on the same stuff The Conduit is packing) The Grinder. Like we said earlier, it’s a game heavily influenced by Left 4 D...
