EA fucked up with their servers and gamers have to wait … so what could one do instead?
Playing Rawbots would be an option – especially since it is free for those waiting for Sim City. All you have to do is use the coupon code “SIMCITY” and instead of 29,99$ you have to pay … NOTHING.

I already got myself a free copy. Thank you makers of Rawbots!
I was really impressed by the LEAP and am already working on two titles I will have hopefully finished for the launch of it. But the time of impressive new input devices is not over yet – here comes the MYO!

Do you remember Prince of Persia? It’s a game over 2 decades old and it ruled because of the lifelike animation of the characters.
With RIOT, an actual riot simulator, similar lifelike animations give the world a very real feeling. Just have a look for yourself. The game is coming to iOS and Android, but they might also deliver PC and Mac versions.
There was a time when I was really sad the classic platformer vanished from gaming.
Thank you indieverse, that time has long been over.
And there is still so much that evolves with platformers seen in games like FEZ or Urban Space Squirrels or A.N.N.E … just look at the presentation with creator Mo from gamesbymo after the break. Continue reading →
