Can you use the word cynical to describe the normally nutty editorial staff? Maybe. We did create the “Guess When the Politician Gets Indicted Office Pool” promotion which invites folks to guess the month when Chris Christie, Andrew Cuomo, Pat Quinn, Scott Walker and Francis J. Underwood get indicted. Thirty six hours after we soft launched it, a Texas grand jury indicted Texas Governor Rick Perry. (more…)
Intreped indie game developer known to some as Cliff Harris released this first public battle video from Gratuitous Space Battles 2, the space strategy game coming out later this year on the PC/OSX/Linux platforms. In the video Cliff Harris narrates the pre-alpha battle effects he built into Gratuitous Space Battles 2. He’s designing the game for folks with gratuitously large computer monitors rather than tablets or mobile phones. (more…)

Are you a banana? Are you about six inches, curved and have thick yellow skin? Chances are not. In that case maybe ths new point and click adventure indie game from Brian Cullen will appeal to you. You can buy chapter 1 of “You Are Not A Banana” indie video game on Desura and Steam Greenlight for $2.99. The accompaning twelve and half minute video gives you a very detailed game overplay. If you like adventure games with a retro look you may like “You Are Not A Banana.”
Do you know what a “Redshirt” is? You know the guys who always wind up dying on the away missions in Star Trek? Those unfortunate bastards are the Redshirts, the lower ranked personnel who sacrifice themselves so the ships officers can live on to appear in more episodes.
We have come across two pieces of culture using the name Redshirts. John Scalzi, a Hollywood California based author wrote Redshirts: A Novel with Three Codas about low level ensigns who begin investigate why their similarly dressed colleagues die while the ship’s officers always survive missions. Its a funny premise and great book.
Equally funny but different is the new pc video game shockingly called Redshirts, created by The Tiniest Shark Game Studio and published by Positech Games. Some simulation strategy video game fans may know of Positech from their previous titles like Gratuitous Space Battles, Gratuitous Tank Battles, Democracy 2, and Kudos 2. Folks can pre-order Redshirts for their PC now priced at $19.95.
The Redshirts video game takes place on a space station called Megaladon 9 where personnel schmooze their way to the top positions using the vessels Facebook equivalent called Spacebook. You can friend folks, like their posts, schedule work related as well as socials events with all activities designed to increase your Charisma rank which is the only rank that matters. You may have to unfriend people or some how make them hate you to gain favor with others. Each Spacebook driven social media activity will affect your charisma rank differently. We will let you figure out that on your own but if you are as socially awkward as our team you are screwed.
The humor comes from the messages posted on different screens that sometimes scroll by too quickly to digest. Redshirts the game has fantastic entertainment potential. We would like to see the developers turn Redshirts into a episode web series.
We met the folks from Portland, Oregon based indie game studio ClutchPlay Games who introduced us to their fun and entertaining arcade game called Little Chomp which takes place in a land called Chompwood Kingdom. (more…)
