    This week was rather slow, with everyone distracted by the holidays! I didn’t even manage to finish my Greensleeves redstone composition in Minecraft (although the room for it is all hollowed out, thanks to the help of a friend). I’ll probably use it for another song.

Specifically, the...

    Backed and helped by Bill Nye himself, AERO is a game that explains the complex parts of aerodynamics as a simple game. Rarely do educational games with gimmicky add-ons catch my attention, but after seeing AERO in action, I can’t express how fun it looks in words. The graphics are incredibly charming, the UI looks...

    It is not every day that a game comes along and delivers a classic blend of fun, humor and polish!  It was refreshing to come across Cheese Tower while market-crawling one night.  While not extremely innovative with its use of a very familiar user-interface layout,  you can’t help but to enjoy it all for what...

    Free-to-play has always been the biggest lie you could find in a gaming term. There is nothing that takes developers, publishers, running servers, or downloads that can truly end up being free.
