Sure, fine why not. The developer behind this has some experience making narrative-based games, so it won’t be terrible. Probably.
Atari Gamer, has been running the Atari Lynx 30th Birthday Programming Competition over the past few months and we now have the final submissions! All eleven of them! That’s right, that’s eleven new games for you to play and rate. We do admit that some are very well polished and others are more on the tech demo side, but all are worth having a look at.
Admittedly, I never played the Lynx hardware when it came out, but I find it fascinating people are still developing games for the platform.

I keep going back and forth between how I feel about the whole situation. On one hand, this is exactly what community managers are for. As developers, it’s not our responsibility (nor do we often have the experience) to interact directly with fans. It’s not really a surprise that some developers resorted t
Apex Legends developer Respawn is looking to deter cheating by forcing those who break the rules to play together.
Too bad they don’t take this concept one step further. If painted in the right light, this could be a huge opportunity for a hacking type of competition, much in the same vein of Facebook’s CTF [https://www.facebook.com/notes/facebook-ctf/facebook-ctf-is-now-open-source/525464774322241/] . They could even go so far as offering rewards for players who disclose exploits, as a sort
In concept, it was a great idea to have a hidden high level code editor right there on a console as an easter egg. But in practice, this opens the console up to a slew of exploits. there’s no saying what kind of system access the editor really has, and players that do not know how to read code could potentially brick their systems. Nintendo made the right call to remove it.
I’ve had a Steam account long enough to know how annoying Steam can be. It started out terrible, got better, then somewhere around the time of trading cards, music player, and other useless features, its started to turn to shit. It does have some great features for everyone though; Steam workshop and game forums for example. Epic isn’t even trying to compete in these areas, making it clear they arent trying to make a better platform, they’re just trying to steal users.
With worsening PC platfor
No Man’s Sky Online includes a radical new social and multiplayer experience which empowers players everywhere in the universe to meet and play together. Whilst this brings people together like never before, and has many recognisable online elements, we don’t consider No Man’s Sky to be an MMO – it won’t require a subscription, won’t contain microtransactions, and will be free for all existing players.
All for free too. It may have took some time, but the game is finally delivering on every
Google is shutting down its Emmy Award-winning VR film division, Spotlight Stories, after six years of building out content
Between this and they’re Daydream platform not being updated for over a year, it’s clear Google is exiting VR. A shame, because projects like Spotlight Stories highlighted the notion that VR can be used for other forms of entertainment besides just video games.
It is many years into the future. A wealthy and powerful person (or persons) has claimed a rare and much sought after prize: the “vault” of 200 unreleased (this is real!) songs from renowned Canadian pop artist, Carly Rae Jepsen. Hired by an anonymous sponsor, your team of highly trained individuals will raid a well-defended location to retrieve said item. From planning to set-up to execution, you will see this heist through to its completion, whether that be a success or failure. There will m
“The world thinks we’re making Titanfall 3 and we’re not – this is what we’re making,” he said. “To try and convince a skeptical audience for months with trailers and hands-on articles, we’re just like, ‘Let the game speak for itself’ – it’s the most powerful antidote to potential problems. We’re doing a free to play game, with essentially loot boxes, after we were bought by EA, and it’s not Titanfall 3. It’s the perfect recipe for a marketing plan to go awry, so why have that – let’s just shi
Since the inception of Substance, our technology and tools have evolved to make 3D creation accessible to artists of every stripe. In Adobe, we’ve found a great partner who shares our love of creation and our drive for innovation and growth.
As someone who used to be a heavy user of pretty much the entire Substance Suite, I have mixed feelings about this. One one hand, Substance software will be around for a lot longer. On the other hand, there’s this statement (emphasis by me):

Linux gamers who rely on Wine or native game clients will have a new option to play games thanks to the latest update. Valve’s fork of Wine, received a major update allowing users to choose to use Proton in place of games’ clients, in some cases providing new functionality such as controller support, better frame rates, or even better multiplayer support. Even better? It works with non steam titles.
Linux users still don’t have the same level of support as Mac or Windows users do, but with tool
