Towncraft is Finally Coming To iPhone and Mac!

In 2013 a couple of my friends asked if I wanted to lend a voice to an iPad game they were making. A group of us went in, made some odd cartoon-esque noises into a microphone and called it a day. Almost a year later, Towncraft has finally exploded onto the App store, been featured on Good Game and shown off at PAX Australia. For those of you that are unfamiliar with the game, Towncraft is a medieval themed crafting/building/exploration game that lets you trade and quest your way to victory. Here’s just SOME of what you can do… • Play a new world every time – no two worlds will ever be the same thanks to procedurally generated maps! • Players will test their skills at crafting, with hundreds of different objects to create. • Gamers can build bridges, jetties, workshops and windmills in the effort to create a fully functioning and self-sufficient town. • Players will order around muck ...

May the Forth Be With You!

In a backyard far far away with Star Wars Day nearly here, how are you going to celebrate? With Star Wars movie marathons happening across Australia and a giant pop-up Star Wars Wedding in Brisbane, there are so many awesome ways to celebrate. Here’s some great ideas to host your own intergalactic Star Wars Party or just to enjoy Solo… hey it worked for Han! 1) Star Wars Slumber Party Grab your Taun Taun sleeping bags, onesies, lightsabers and fellow Jedi’s (or Sith Lords depending on your friends, lol) and spend the night watching the films or other Star Wars inspired movies, including: - Fan Boys (personally one of my favorite movies of all time) - Hardware Wars - Space Balls - Lego Star Wars, The Padawan Menace - Lego Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Out - Family Guy Trilogy - Robot Chicken Star Wars - The Ewok Films – Caravan of Courage, The Battle of Endor - Clone Wars Also, ...

Indie Game Spotlight - Lone Survivor: The Director's Cut

A Bit About The Game and Creator Lone Survivor is a game created by Jasper Byrne, a man who’s done quite a lot in the indie game scene. From contributing music to Hotline Miami and its upcoming sequel, Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number, to developing games within his own studio, Superflat Games. This guy has clearly been pretty busy. He’s also a music producer (which lends to the fact of him contributing to the Hotline Miami soundtracks) which adds the icing on-top of the “damn you’ve done a lot” cake. His most notable game and no doubt my favorite of his is Lone Survivor. An odd tale of a mans screwed up life in a screwed up world. I’m not a big PC gamer myself, and while I do jump into games like Papers, Please and Starbound often – I just don’t have that much of a love for the desktop gaming experience. Therefore waiting for a console release of Lone Survivor was arduous but when it ...

Hi everyone! If you saw below, I posted a review for The Amazing Spider-man 2: Rise of Electro. That wasn't just a one off post, and I'm here to let you know that I've joined the Geek Bomb team as the first 'Boy-Bomb' as Maude has put it! Simply put, I'm big on all things TV/Movies/Gaming! Listing my favourites from each of those categories would take quite some time so I'll keep it simple - I absolutely love the hilarious sit-com, the foreign horror flick and the third-person shooter. I'm also a big FIFA fan and I adore anything Naughty Dog develops. I suck at introductions, so feel free to send over some questions and I'll happily answer any of them :) - Toby

As a little tike growing up, Spider-man was a huge presence around me.
