Got another of those “games changing hands” stories for you. This time around, it’s Mage Company. They’ll be taking over Goblin Dice from Gaga Games. In the game, you play as a goblin in a race. But it’s not just making sure you beat your opponents, it’s about maki...

Mage Company takes us beneath the 12 Realms world in their new stand-alone game, Dungeonland. In the game, famous fairy tale and folklore stories have been corrupted by dark magic. The usual, “Happily Ever After” endings are no more, and it threatens the entire realm with destruction. Wil...

Well, it’s almost like the week is getting back on schedule, even though it’s Saturday. I woke up. I got groceries. I’m now typing up the Review Roundup in my living room while listening to music and contemplating the rest of my day. Sort of nice to get things back to how they shoul...

It’s getting busy here in the office, what with the CMON Expo coming up this weekend. Lots of the usually out-of-office staff are coming in. I baked cookies for the occasion. But it’s not just cookies that will sustain us for the show. We’ll also need to fill up on some bite-sized g...

It’s Thursday and I’m at home. The Office Move continues, with much of the furniture making its way to the new building. But since the new place isn’t quite ready yet, many of us are working from home. Besides, trying to write while movers are going up and down the halls with stuff ...

Hey everyone. Well, the first week of the year is coming to a close. It’s been… an odd one. Monday I had off. Tuesday I had to take my car in for repairs (which got finished up on Thursday, since they had to order in a part). Wednesday and Thursday I had some stomach issues. […]...

Occasionally, games will change hands. Sometimes a company acquires an already-existing project as they feel they will be able to help it grow by giving it a wider audience than the original company is able to. Well, Mage Company has picked up Dwar7s Fall from Vesuvious Media. Here’s to getting...

Hey guys. You might’ve noticed we didn’t have a Terrain Corner yesterday. That’s because I was whisked away to help work on a super-ultra-deep-covert project. Or, being that a lot of companies are currently on holiday, there wasn’t much to report on. One of the two. Anyway, so...

Today’s a day to celebrate. Why? It’s my 5th anniversary with TGN. Yes, on this day, 5 years ago, I made my first post on the site. It was the new plastic Warp Wolf kit that Privateer Press was coming out with. Oh how gaming has changed since then. I remember having a conversation, a [&he...

I technically have the day off today. Why? Because CMON went public on the Hong Kong stock exchange and they’re giving us the day off to celebrate. But the news doesn’t stop just because the office is closed. Neither rain, nor sleet, nor snow, nor slush, shal keep me from giving you your ...

At once, it feels both like, “wow. Already Wednesday?” and “wow. How is it only Wednesday?” Is it that way for anyone else or just me? I feel like I’ve gotten a lot done, but have a lot more waiting ahead of me. Ah well. We’ll make it. Break on through to the other...

Conventions are a great place to pick up some games. You can usually get the latest and greatest that’s available and pick it up right from the company, many times before anyone else has had a chance to get them. Mage Company will be at Spiel Essen in a couple weeks, and to make sure […]...

This week just seems to be screaming by. At least, I feel it is. I’m hoping yours is going by well-enough. I feel it’s mostly because it’s been rather busy over on this side of the screen. Various proofing projects have been passing over my desk. What can I say? I enjoy editing. Any...

You gotta eat. And if you’re a rabbit in Carrotia, you eat carrots (of course!). Unfortunately, carrot stocks are low. So you’ve gotta head out into the woods to gather more. But there are birds swirling over head, looking to pounce on an unsuspecting bunny. You must head out and collect ...
