Mining has always been a very tough job, but also quite possibly a very lucrative one. From ancient times where they were finding copper and gold in the mountains, to the far future where they mine into asteroids to find Xendryd crystals. Star Scrappers: Cave-in takes place in the latter. Players wil...

Many people don’t know that John Carpenter’s The Thing was actually a remake of an older movie. It was also based on a book (so when people are all, “Adaptations and remakes are never good!” I just go, “oh, really? How about The Thing?”). Well, Certifiable Studios ...

While I, obviously, am writing every day, I’m not so great at coming up with stories. I mean, I can tell you about new games and such, but to have a traditional story with characters, plot, setting, and all that, I’m pretty terrible at. Well, Nanofictionary might be able to help out. It&#...

The Roman Empire was one of the greatest the world has ever seen. However, since I’m not speaking Latin now goes to show that it didn’t last forever. The many wars, as well as internal issues caused its collapse. Though many tried hard to keep it afloat, many others were speeding it along...

If you have something you really believe in, you won’t let some small setback totally derail it. Take, for example, a Kickstarter campaign. There’s many things that can cause one not to go as intended. But it certainly doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try again. And that’s jus...

Ecosystems are fragile things. Everything is interconnected. Change one thing and you change everything. This is certainly true out on the Seregeti. It’s that balance that GCT Studios looks to replicate in Seregeti: A Race for Life. It’s a new card game that they’ve got up on Kickst...

It’s the Middle Ages. But it’s cool, because you’re in charge, as the King or Queen of a region. But you don’t want to just have your kingdom sitting mostly empty. You want grand buildings and fields and such filling it up. You want to show off the majesty of it all. That̵...

Blame Canada (Day), but it seems that the post got eaten by the system. It happens occasionally, but it’s alright. We can rebuild it. We can make it stronger, faster, better… Or mostly the same but with this new intro. Anyway, this week we have: Werewords, Caverna: Cave vs Cave, Not Alone...

When the bombs start to fall from the sky, the safest place to be is in another country that’s not having such an issue… but when that’s not an option, you might want to head underground. Safe (relatively) below the surface, you do your best to stay alive. It’s not just the bo...
